Best Doc Build in Back 4 Blood

The best medic in the business.

Back 4 Blood is the latest cooperative shooter from Turtle Rock Studios, and while it has much in common with its predecessor, Left 4 Dead, it's got its fair share of new mechanics, like the card system. Finding the right cards for each of the game's Cleaners is essential for making the most of their abilities. Here, we'll teach you how to build around Doc, the game's healer.

Each Deck in the game can hold 15 Cards, so you'll need to grab the ones that prioritize healing yourself and your allies for maximum Sufi ability as Doc.
