I attacked the upper right corner of Grumm and got everybody cleared out except for one guy. This guy is hanging out in a building, in the corner, ambush-like. He has a G11 rifle. And his name is a bunch of question marks. I am not sure, but I think this designates a NPC that I can talk to if the situation is right.

He is, so far, impossible to kill. I've bombed him with four or five 40mm stun grenades and some hand thrown stun grenades. But if he is knocked down, he just gets back up and does 200+ points of damage. happy

I've left that sector to regroup and bring in my explosives expert. I'm thinking of trying to blow the corner of the building, where this guy is hiding, from the outside while at the same time I will do the multiple 40mm stun grenades. Boom! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

I tried mustard gas and he did run away one time from it, but he doesn't seem negatively affected by gas.

Anyway, assuming he is a NPC, is there a way to turn him from being hostile? I'm going to try a spy next and see what that does.

Mike is the only NPC with a G11 rifle and he is hard to kill with his high stats and spectra armor. Also special NPCs like him get bonuses (SPECIAL_NPCS_STRONGER in Ja2_Options.ini). You will have to use explosives or lots of AP bullets to get him down. If he is the last enemy on the map and heavily wounded you might get him to join your side by trying to recruit him with a high leadership merc.

Mike has bodybuilder trait which gives him 25% DR.
Also he has "Veteran Mercenary" background which gives him additional 15% DR.
Also with default settings he has additional 75/2 = 37.5% DR from SPECIAL_NPCS_STRONGER option.
Add protection from armour, and you'll see why it's nearly impossible to kill him in ordinary way.

Should be easier to put him to sleep first with grenades or tranquilizer and use knife or throwing knife to kill him as knives ignore armour protection. Or maybe use powerful SAP ammo aiming at head.
Neurotoxin dart should work well, too. Or throw some molotov's at him. Or use covert soldier to bring a pack of TNT's, drop them behind his back and activate from distance.
So many ways of killing enemies in this game.
