If you're looking to play the healer role in Back 4 Blood, look no further than Doc. Here's everything you need to know in order to keep yourself, and your team, alive.

Best Weapons for Doc in Back 4 Blood

When it comes to weapons, Doc is fairly versatile. While her preferred weapon is listed as being the Beretta M9, players shouldn't feel like they need to stick to pistols. A good way to choose your weapons with Doc is by picking ones similar to the teammates you're looking to support. You don't want to be dealing damage up close and personal if your teammates are shooting from a distance; you're going to want to stay nearby if you need to heal them in a pinch.

For example, if the majority of your team are opting for ranged weapons, a good compliment to use with Doc could be a long-ranged pistol. Especially perfect if you want to keep in line with Doc's preferred weaponry.
