Fidel and Hamous are my favorite Mercs because of their funny lines and personalities.

Postie is my favorite, it's impossible not to enjoy his voice and lines. "You can hire me, or not hire me - I REALLY don't care!"

As for JA2, it's Red and Devin, for their accents mostly. Gotta love Irish & Scottish. Devin's "You're welcome" after killing an enemy is my favourite line in the game by far.

Also, try killing Red when Devin's in your squad and listen to his response. Hilarious!

"Hah... The Shepard walks again!" The only guy who makes me play like a professional.
Apart from that: Wolf. He is a professional too. When those tow guys get wounded/shot, I always feel like it was my fault. - Unlike other guys, who really SHOULD have hit that last shot, like I told them xD

Yeah, Wolf is in almost every game of me at some point too, he really feels realistic. Can't say he's my favorite merc, but he for sure is the one I hired the most.

My personal favorites are :

Gasket - just love his face and his endless stupidity
Razor - have you ever heard what he says after killing the bug queen? Something like "let's fill some glasses with pus, and make a toast" - LOL!!!

And special thanks to my old team of friendly guys : Scully, Static, Thor, Ice and (S)Hitman. A very nice team all in all, although Scully is the only one not to complain about the other's abilities...

I always get Raiden and Raven no matter what. Raider is a great overall CQC fighter and Raven provides fire support. The SWAT armor is pretty damn good at the start too.

You could change his camo trait with proedit, or if you don't like to do it yourself, get the WF mod. Wink We also didn't like his useless camo skill and exchanged it with stealth.

My favourite mercenary has quickly become Meltdown. "Hey attentionspan!"

Before that I was a big fan of the "Vice President of wrecking stuff" Maddog and his laughing as he gets shot. I guess I still am.

Gotta say I like Shank too. His stats rise so fast it's not a problem.

@DeathMark: Get Ice, he is the poor man's Magic. Smile

I like Barry, he has yet to fail disarming a trapped door/chest for me, he is cheap to and repairs like crazy, better than Gasket, who gets sleepy too quickly unless you give him a couple levels.

Razor is pretty unique in his ability to walk accross the map and not need to sleep, awesome even after you have the truck and chopper. I give Razor a cheap Mini 14 with a Battle Scope and Folding Stock, makes him a great guy to solo a sector that doesn't have too many enemies. The rifle with the Battle Scope let's him spend 6 APs on aiming, which works well for him as his MRK isn't all that high.

I'm a big fan of Malice (funny), Meltdown (funny/crazy), and Trevor (just a cool, laid-back guy with great stats). For the more professional types, I like Raven, Magic, and Shadow. I can't stand Stephen just because of his incredibly annoying voice. I don't like Ice in JA2, either, because his voice is different from JA1. I always use him in JA1, though.

Speaking of JA1 (or JA2UB), Tex! Tex is hilarious, and in UB, he's actually good, too.

Grizzly- "That was close- I don't plan on missing". Deadly on a budget, plenty of strength to carry his weapons of mass destruction, plus he is just cool.

Igor is my first hiring choice. Igor has a high wisdom and turns into a killing machine quite rapidly.

The top of my scale, but my usual second hire, is Malice. Malice is a killing machine right out of the box and, even though his wisdom is low, he gets so many kills that he turns into a top-notch merc pretty quickly. In most of my games he quickly moves up two rows in the AIM roster.

Some of this enjoyment might come from Malice being French-Canadian, Montreal is my favourite city and I've met a few "Malices". Very Happy

As an added bonus, Ira hates Malice but she can't quit (I usually turn her and Flo into alcoholics). Hehe.

That usually is one of my squads. They work pretty well, though I sometimes end up losing Razor at some point because I like to keep Flo around. And my IMP moves from place to place to fill in various roles as required.

Edit: I should add that I think that given sufficient lead time you could take out half of Arulco with that squad as effectively as with the top ranked AIM mercs (and have more fun into the bargain.) Without any additional training beyond regular combat. "Bottom of the Barrel" doesn't always mean 'bad', sometimes it just means 'more flavourful'. Very Happy

My top aces are.



Igor - stealthy, night predator.

Grunty - "Mini Wolf". He's cheap and he's a swift learner.

Malice - Many people hate him, but I like him. He's services are cheap, good stats, good shooting, melee training. A good frontline soldier.

Sidney - He's kinda posh but he knows how to shoot things, he can be an average medic and a leader too.

Razor - Psycho with a knife. Very efficient hunter.

Reaper - Top notch.

Bull & Grizzly - Good team. They are like brothers. Frontline HOGS.

Ice - A very cool dude, just give him a decent MG and watch him shine bro.

LOL!

Yes, he's a very attractive fella, that Bubba. Wink

The Ron's faces mod (as modified by Marlboro) does give the old faces a bit of a lift, and some, not so much. A lot more character overall, though.

My top five, in no particular order:

1. Scully. He's not an ass, he's all around very skilled and he can use the katana effectively, which can be humorous if planned well. He was my team leader in JA/DG. Psycho from Crysis reminded me of him greatly.

2. Len. He starts out as a good teacher, and he just gets better. Also, he's extremely cost efficient and starting at level 7 is a boost in the interrupts district. I also appreciate his attitude, even though everybody should be "sir"-ing him.

3. Fox. Where would we be without her? Fox is for sure my favorite female mercenary, and she was the first merc I ever used to kill Mike because she's just that good.

4. Barry. Talk about multi-talented... he can shoot, he can take care of traps, and he can repair all very well. Maybe not as great in combat as some others, but some of his comments delivered at the right time in combat can make me laugh.

5. Spike. No, he's not in JA2, which really makes me sad. But in his time, he was one of the best ever, even with his low agility.

It's mostly the personalities that get me for these people.
