Can medic droids heal mercenaries too?

Post#1 » Fri Jun 07, 2019 4:56 am

The text for medic droids says that they heal infantry but I know they can be used to keep heroes alive too. Can they be used with mercenaries and if so are they as effective? Do they heal infantry better than others?

The target preferences for them in https://papajessie.github.io/swcpy/Medic.html don't include mercs but imply that they don't help fliers: is that correct?

Yes, medic droids can heal infantry mercenaries. It is the armorType that determines what they can heal. Merc units like the Gamorrean and Twi'lek are bruiserInfantry or Infantry and can be healed. Works pretty well in my experience.

Also, you are correct, they do not heal fliers.

I believe they don't heal gamos and twyleks as well as other infantry, though. Both of those mercs have a special ability called 'reducedheal' that is at 50% ( I believe) and that lowers the healing effect. Bruiser infantry is also not healed as well as regular infantry. You need to check the papajessie website for exact details.

R2-D2 is Armor type: healerInfantry. Healer Infantry isn't listed as a target preference either way. Does it count as infantry? (Healer Infantry isn't listed as a target preference either in attacking units but turrets will happily shoot as them.)

healerInfantry is a special category that cannot be healed by things that heal infantry. Otherwise medics would heal medics, etc, etc.
