When I just played vanilla JA2, I got to the point where I like just using
IMP "Monk"
Dr. Q
Wolf

which was fun for a long time - I like the personalities and quotes from those two quite a bit, and with good leadership with my IMP, good medical with Dr. Q, and good mechanical/explosive with Wolf, and Night Ops with all. Mainly I just filled in the rest with freebies and cheap "in country" hires. Sometimes I'd pick up Numb from MERC - he and Dr. Q were like ninjas, although his accent is atrocious lol

I always get Gasket.

Now that I'm playing 1.13 and things aren't nearly as easy, I'm trying the "all animal-name" team -
IMP "Mongoose"
Wolf
Fox
Grizzly
Bull
and Cougar when I can afford him.

The personality interactions are great - I love Grizzly's eulogies - and in particular I found that I really like Bull's quotes -
"Lie still" (when he kills someone)
"Hard work and clean livin' pay off"(skill increase)
"You pay more to get more, and I'm more now" (salary raise)
and of course my signature line.

My favorite team:


Igor
Barry
Grunty
Buns
Blood

All the qualities mentioned above for the merc are true. I always take Buns because of good shooting, medical skill and teaching. She's worth.

A-team:
IMP 1 (Night/stealth)
IMP 2 (Night/stealth) (or Barry)
IMP 3 (Night/Auto) (or Buns)
Grunty
Igor
Dimitri (replaced by robot)

B-Team:
Ira (traveling militia/doc)
MD (traveling militia/doc)
Maddog (San Mona to repair and buy weapons)
Gasket (Drassen crate opener/repair/Carmen POC)
Shank & Dynamo (flying around moving guns/ammo from place to place)

I usually forget to pick up Carlos & Miguel, and snipe Conrad in the head rather than deal with his attitude & high paycheck.

My core team consists of a four man assault squad.

Wolf- pointman/mech with M16/M9 and a Spaz on the side
Lynx- sniper/explosives expert with M16/M9 and an M24
Grizzly- machinegunner/heavy weaps with a M249/M9 combo
Fox- spotter/medic with twin M1911s holstered, walks
around with binoculars in hand tho
They travel around with the hummer (loaded with supplies
for any and every situation) as their mobile base.

Sometimes I'll add a couple two man teams as needed

Sniper/Spotter- Radier and Raven with PSG1s and MP7s
Utility Team- Trevor and Cliff for bombs and bandaids
Secondary Assualt- Ivan and Igor with AK47s of course
Alt Secondary Assualt- Magic and Ice fill in sometimes

Then a couple miscellaneous mercs I use sometimes

Shadow- Lone wolf, lurks in the wilderness on his own
coordinating his own covert operations deep
behind enemy lines.
Hamous- Airport Staff, receives shipments and has been
known to go out on resupply missions on occasion

I normally don't but I sometimes have an artillery squad
consisting of the four rebels and as much mortar gear
they can carry.

My core team from the start includes:


Fraz (IMP dude) - Night Ops, Stelthy.
Nails - Lockpick, Dark Humor.
Fox - Field Medic, Raises fast, keeps the moral high. Smile
Hamous - Stealty, Low stats, but I like his humble personality

Latter on the game these ones are a must: Shadow, Lynx, Grizzly, Ivan, Igor, Trevor, Raven (Raider stays at home).

My must have lineup:

IMP - Friendly psycho, automatic weapons.
Fidel (Arm him with an AK, pump full of drugs and watch him annihilate)
Maddog (Dumb, and rocks mad ass when high level. )

The idea is that high level psychos are DEADLY in late game with any automatic weapon.

And, also Fox, Igor, Ivan, and Wolf are a good squad of their own.

I think the only merc in the game who is both a psychopath and has the automatic weapons skill is Haywire. So you could add him to your list. As well as Razor of course, both can be turned into fine mercs if you work on their marksmanship.

i guess the only non-RPC character that actually remains in my team until the endgame these days is often Ivan. Just the most profilic Merc imo.

hmm, I ma have to try him out. I havent used any MERCs lately, since I try to go for high quality and well armed guys as opposed to strength in numbers.

Also, Reaper seems to be one of the best snipers of all times.

Do any of the editors allow you to change your IMPs personality once the game has started?

I Have 2 different games going on, in one of them I have 3 IMPs:

1) Psycho Loner
2) Cowardly and scared of insects
3) Forgetful Coward

I would like to alter number 3, rather than replace him with a new IMP.

It's very tricky, most tools were made way before 1.13.

But you can always make a new IMP and load him/her at the IMP site... Just start a new game, create a the IMP with a unique name, then load him in your current game.

The smaller the team, the more shots each guy gets to fire and the faster MRK will rise. The problem with Haywire is that apart from MRK his agility could be better, so you might have to train him. Razor has excellent combat stats right from the start except for MRK. Here's an overview from my last game with a MERC-only squad: http://www.sininen.de/mercs.png

IMP+Gus+Shadow+Trevor+Grizzly+Danny

My SpecOps Team. when they did their work, I send in a Stabilization Force, to reinforce the Position I have just taken. And my SpecOps Team is free for any other tasks again (for example, taking up an advanced position to intercept and ambush any counterattacking force Wink

There's Buzz for that = Psycho - Auto Weap - Heavy Weap

Quite Cheap IMP = 18k per 2 weeks and start at level 4, i think she cost 45k per 2 weeks at level 8. Stats wise for 1.13 she needs extensive training at Dex for max 100 AP, excellent Mrk and Wis, Decent Agi, Mediocre Health, all others are low. Speaking of core team she's usually one of my favorite, and since Lynx at least for me are less usefull than her i tend to get her than Lynx.

Anyways Core Team (1.13 and some extent vanilla)

IMP - Sniper NO in 1.13 - Stealthy NO in vanilla
Buzz - The auto speacialist, deadly with FN Fal in vanilla
Blood/Dr.Q - The MA specialist
Steroid/Ivan - Leaning towards Steroid cause i dont usually get Gaskett
Scope/Reaper - Sniper
Fox/Danny - Combat Medic
