Battlefield 1 Update – Medic class changes drastically
In a way, we understand that sometimes you don’t want to be revived. For example, if you got incapacitated with your body still in the enemy line of fire, you wouldn’t want to be revived immediately because you would just get hit and die again. So, not requesting one will make sure you don’t get revived. However, it did make the Medic class borderline useless. Because most people didn’t know about the revive button or were just too slow to press it.
There were also a bunch of technical issues with the revive button. The spot where the player died at was the actual location where they had to be revived. However, bodies would sometimes go flying from that location to somewhere else. DICE has confirmed that they are fixing this issue. Also, the revive icon will be fixed. It will show up where the dead bodies are on the mini-map instead of the spot that the soldier died on.
There are other Fixes DICE are working on, You will not be able to revive Elite Classes such as Flamethrower men and If you die in a vehicle such as a truck or Horse you will cannot be revived. Battlefield 1 Medic Class Update, No Revive for Elite Class
