well... here we go...

#1 worst is the IMP character

I mean you cant do much to customize him... you either have to give him 0... or 35 in skills so you can get something... and max is 85? Mad

whatever I dont use IMP waste of my time to train him...

#2 Biff...

#3 Dynamo... stats are way low!

#4 Shank... same as Dynamo stats are horrid spend entire game training him and still woudlnt' be worth it.

#5 whats the rebel girls name? what ever she is ugly and that annoying voice!!!

Hahaha thats funny with amous in the junk yard!

Ok, worst mercs means forme BORING mercs, I don't give a crap about their stats or how good they are, I can't stand mercs who don't make me laugh.

1.Shadow (What a boring dork! Tried him once, never again.)

2.Larry (Though he would be fun, well he wasn't.)

3-5. Danny, MD and Stephen (Must admit never tried em yet cause they look so ****ing boring just from the hiring sreen.

Don`t insult Shadow. You don`t know where is he hiding. He may be your best friend, your car, lamp just outside your house, table or chair you see every day. He can camouflage as anything if he wants to so (again) don`t insult him, or you`ll regret the result :nono: :nono:

Agreed Shadow is one of the best combat mercs

If it could be done I would model an IMP character after shadow... now that would be one bad ass team. Two permanently camouflagde MERCs :diabolical:

Now see, but Shadow is just dead ass boring, he'd really make a good lantern! And you got it in your signature, Shadow just doesn't say anything cool or funny, like "Firepower- the difference between life and death" which is from Wolf when he kills with a strong weapon like FN-FAL I think.

Hey you Jura Jura can suck my exhaust... Grunty is definitely one of my favourite mercs in the game. First of all, his quotes are funny as hell. And his skills evolve so quickly when he's in action, he'll be the most valuable merc in your team in no time.

Oddly enough, my hated do not include Shank, Flo or Biff...Shank has good attitude and has come through for me at times; Biff and Flo are absolutely hilarious...

5. Spider - Annoying, I have no qualms with those that can't take human suffering but they shouldn't be mercenaries!
4. Slay - Just doesn't seem to have much personality. And he has the most uninspired crepitus quotes ever.
3. Len - Plain, undeveloped, one dimensional.
2. Fidel - Boring. See above.
1. Biggins - UB. Just such a good guy.

But unlike a lot of you I wouldn't kill anyone I disliked...guess I just don't hate them enough.

5. Shank: useless, more of a danger to himself and others.
4.Vicki: makes JarJar Binks seem intelligent. Would rather spend the extra cash for Trevor.
3.Any merc with 0 medical: I agree, if you can't even put a band-aid on yourself, what good are you?
2.Flo: coward, proabably couldn't shoot herself if she tried.
1.Biff: same as Flo. Unless you need to clean up a minefield in a hurry (by herding him across it), he is useless.

Len: I think I had seen in Proedit that he can't progress at all. At least he hadn't progressed a bit in my games.

And you people shouldn't say a given merc (say Trevor) sucks coz he's expensive... Being worth a lot a money makes him a bad fighter?

Well, let's say that Trevor is not cost effective then.

Any merc with decent intelligence can become a killer with enough training. For instance, I got Shank to lvl 9 with st/dx in the 80s, mrk and ag in the 90s. With his expert throwing skills, he was extremely deadly with a throwing knife, and was a great grenadier to back up my point man.

I like to hire "free" mercs (ok, shank isn't free at $20/day...) and sit on a mine for as long as it takes to get several hundred grand. THEN I hire my A team from AIM all at once, and immediately extend their contracts to 55 days or so while they are still relatively cheap (ie. have not gained any levels).

Trevor is a great merc right out of the box, no question, but his salary is way out of line for his level.

This is even more critical since I usually use JA2 nowadays as a training field for my mercs in UB and all the mods that grow from UB. The problem is that you have way less cash in UB. So it is then better to take a really cheap merc like Barry and train him to lvl 8 than Trevor. Both will have similar attributes in the end, but Barry will be WAY cheaper.

...and Numb, he's a great shot for a low price, and Gasket, excellent mechanic for almost no money at all. I actually prefer the MERC mercs, they're more cost efficient.

Worst mercs in my opinion:
1. Barry, because he gets killed all the time. Does he carry a lead magnet or what? Besides, couldn't they have called him Laszlo and maybe given him a more hungarian sounding accent?
2. Larry, because he uses up all medical supplies. Couldn't he get some help from Thor to find some nice plants in the forest to (ab)use instead?
3. Bubba, stupid irritating annoying freak!! He actually reminds me of... oh sorry, forgot, no political discussions here
4. Flo. What she says when she kills someone is kind of cute, but every time I use her, someone disappears because of her
5. Biff. Reminds me of my friends bicycle: Very cheap, but certainly not worth its price.

Oh, well... my top5 losers:

1. Shank - a.ka. Spank, a complete loser. Useless for every task, even for a bulletmagnet. I always ditch him after he gets me the fuel from Estoni.
2. Flo - Argh, those magnifivent stats. A decent militia trainer, anyway, and helps fuel the M.E.R.C. recruiting while in my payroll.
3. Gasket - Babbling redneck idiot, who can't shoot and is complety helpless while bleeding. (Haha, die slowly! :devilglasses: ). Also, can't cope with Ivan and Igor, who happen to be some of my favorite mercs.
4. Dr. Beaumont - A true marksman, who can't hit a cow from adjacent square. I also despise his Ned Flanderish voice.
5. Ira - Jus hate her generally.

Biff is actually kinda cool, I love to hear him scream "OH MY GOD, I'M A DEAD MAN!" and "OH MY GOD, THAT'S MY BLOOD!" :rulez:

Biff is a wuss.

1. Flo (she sucks and she annoys the hell out of me)
2. Biff
3. Nails: Some people wont agree with me, but you cant even take him in a mine, or he starts blubbering like a baby.
4. Gasket
5. Ira: Medical skill is ok, but i had a problem with her yesterday missing somebody from one square away and then getting punched to death. Left her behind my other mercs and she got attacked. She had about TEN SHOTS total to kill him and missed all of them.

The worst:

:scary: Shank (can you say "prison bitch"? I thoughtcha could! Oops, can I say bitch without being censored?)

:nono: I didn't like Bubba, either... 'til San Mona, then he punched the crap out of everyone, made me a ton of money in the boxing ring by winning every fight with knuckle dusters and then I felt sorry for his stutter and got to like his painful "Okey dokey!" remarks. He's worth it for hand-to-hand combat, for the doubters out there (I noticed that a few of you call him very useless)! :shake:

To Sgt. York:

I preferred a good ol' fashioned shoot-out with the rednecks to get to the shed rather than deal with Flo for another moment (in spite of the sweet revenge of dumping her right there, oh yes)! Call me violent... but it made me feel much better to get rid of the Hicks by force rather than to try make them happy by a cheap bribe!

For you which say that Grumpy, Trevor and Thor sucks....
You got no idea of what you are talking about. Thor isnt expencive at all, just train him. Grumpy simply rocks with some training and Trevor is expensive, but a skilled SoB.
And Flo doesn't suck all that much, I usually marry her away to the Hick's :diabolical:

My list:
#1 Biff
#2 Gumpy
#3 Shank
#4 Bubba
#5 Larry

Yeah, some of the RPC are no good. And the Merc people are practice bodies.. so to make it more interesting i'm thinking here only of AIM people.

1) Q. Guns rule. HtH doesn't, unless you've won the game 600 times and want something new for a change. His marksmanship is horrible.
2) MD. Ditto. Plus: no experience.
3) Barry. Sorry, I don't like hardcore Christians :angel: :rifle: Very Happy . Actually, his stats aren't good enough for me. If Reaper or Ivan were hardcore Christians, I'd love them all the same..
4) Blood. He never did the job for me. Just a personal experience.
5) .. I'm still thinking. At this time i'd say Igor, because I like to go in fast and with an expert crew. Don't have much time to raise people's experience. But I'm sure there's somebody who's worse and I missed. Oh yes. Spider.
I think you can tell I love high marksmanship and doctorless crews (i.e. re-loading to death) Very Happy

Most useless mercs:

1. Shank (waste of space)
2. Hamous (ditto - hire him for the truck then fire him)
3. Dynamo (better lock pickers out there)

I like Ira, Biff and Flo - all are dead cheap (free!) and all are good for training militia. Never get them into combat though! :bawling:

I like my IMP - not many psycho auto weapons experts out there :bandit:
