The Medic Support Handgun is a weapon that appears in Dead Space 3. The weapon must be built at a Bench after finding the blueprint.


A compact Rivet Gun and Hydraulic Knife for quick accurate triage; modified with two co-op support attachments.

This weapon is very versatile and can fit into many situations.  With damage and fire rate chips plugged into the base you've got a hard hitting, rapid fire weapon that's good against all manner of enemies.  It has a decent reload speed and enough stability to be used at close to medium range. The build cost is high for earlier playthroughs but isn't available until later in the game once the player has acquired the Telemetry Spike and Hydraulic Engine. A side note is that with a higher fire rate it shoots as fast as you can tap the trigger but in doing so, also consumes a lot of ammo.

When using this weapon on harder multiplayer difficulties it could potentially save you partner's life with a quick use of a Medical Pack while they are in the yellow or red.


The blueprint for this weapon can be found during Chapter 9, the snow level, inside a large facility where one of your crew can be found.
