General Tips[]

  • Although he has one of the best selection of starting gear, he will encounter strong enemies earlier on. It's normal to find strong Mechs and other enemies on low levels, so be prepared!
  • Due to high starting Melee skill and the Tailswipe attack you can save your melee weapons in a lot of situations.
  • Due to his high starting might, he can fight off disease and poison fairly easily. So items used for making Aggressive Antibiotics or to a lesser extent Anti-Venom should be a low priority.
  • Food is a HUGE problem for the Mercenary. Spending skill points on Biotech and Foraging are a necessity. An EZ Cooker or Bourdox make his life so much easier.
  • The Mercenary has the highest food consumption rate in the game. Thus it is essential to limit back tracking to instances when it will either gain you a lot of food or something really worth it.
  • Starting weapons have impressive durability, especially Kak'urdu Sal.
  • Mercenary levels up much slower than other classes and the food consumption rate are high enough. His exp gains are tiny compared to the Engineer or Striker.
  • The Imperial Special will increase his Might by 1, therefore prioritize creating this either through the Mercenary himself or through creating it with another character and leaving it in a safe room for a Mercenary run.
