Kickbacks can be activated when you are down IF you "fall down" to your death.

 

For example:

You are climbing up the side of a building and someone shoots you until you die and you drop down into the downed state. Your kickback is available, you CAN use it to heal yourself.

 

For some reason, if you "fall" to your death, it counts as if you are still "up," but you cannot move.

 

It's really nice to be able to use your kickbacks when you are down because you can activate your Army of Three, Protector, or Team Medic to make it a bit easier on your team mates.

 

I always tell my team mates that if they're going to go down, try and jump around a little bit so that they may use their kickback if needed. Smiley Wink


I know this but the player i played with was already down for a few seconds then they used team medic, must of been some extreme lag or something.

 


Did you understand what the other poster was saying?  It doesn't matter how long you're down - you CAN use your kickback if you are downed while you were in air/climbing.

 


Yes i understood but this didn't happen to him.

It obviously did, because you CANNOT use your kickbacks when "downed" other than when THIS happens.

Your probably right then, but the way i saw it just looked kinda odd.

Re: Question about team medic

I finally got around to testing this. 

1. You can use team medic if you get downed when you are jumping (for example you are jumping away from a grenade). 

2. You can use team medic if you get downed when you are hanging off something.

 

This works for other kickbacks as well.

The split-second between getting shot and getting downed might work.

Re: Question about team medic

This is an interesting thread. I always though team medic activation while downed was a bit random, but now a good tip would be, if you're going down, jump/climb. Now that I think about it, I do remember activating it after downing when I'm frantically jumping to get away.
