Stephen also upsets some of the locals so isn't worth it even for a laugh... he is a dead slot and needs redoing top to bottom imho.

I hate:


Biff - Weasilly little maggot.

Flo - Who in the F#*%! allowed a 48 year old elementary school librarian into the mercenary business?!

Bubba - I do not hate his personality(and he is not a racist BTW. Sir-tech never implemented that 'feature' did they? He does not hate anyone.) but he is a TERRIBLE buy, economically speaking. Right now in my current game Razor has far better stats everywhere except strength and maybe health and explosives(who cares?) and is near 60 wisdom so far and he costs me $185 a day! Bubba costs $600 a day right from the start, has okay Marksmanship, pedestrian dexterity and agility and abysmal wisdom(29!?). Barry starts out with 80+ - 90+ in most of the primary stats(including a 91 or 94 wisdom), has two skills(Bubba has just one:HtH) and is a better mechanic and explosives guy overall and he barely costs more than Bubba at level 5 with nearly '90' in most(if not all) his stats.

Biggins - I would love this guy but he is a worse buy than Bubba! Worse stats(better skills/traits though), especially poor strength(worse than Ira!), and he charges $1600 A DAY?!? Are you f*cking kidding me?!?

Raider - That freaking Magnum P.I. mustache of his...ARGH!

Meltdown - Love her stats and all but the butch chopper-dyke thing just creeps me out. I love lesbians...just not realistic ones.

Dynamo and Shank - Both are worthless(but priced right). Since I already have Barry & Magic or someone like that on my primary squad and will get Maddog on my second, I have no use for Dynamo and I could not find a use for Shank if everyone from A.I.M were killed in a fiery explosion and M.E.R.C. went belly up.

Bubba is a racist, according to most of the black mercenaries.

At least, that's what blood is saying. And blood is 9 times the merc Bubba is, so he wins.

Hate the most? Hmmmm, I think I'll have to jump on the bandwagon and go with Ira. Now, I don't mind a Brooklyn accent, it can be funny, but her voice... ARGGH! The last straw was when she started bitching about Haywire or some other cool guy and sounding like an angsty teen all the time. Then her combat role went from "lookout" to "decoy." In another game I married her to the Cambria hillbillies.

At first I liked Miguel and Carlos too, but then they started moaning about Iggy. Iggy! You don't moan about Iggy on my watch, mr. Militia-trainer-and-errand-boy-for-life!

Then there are some boring ones like MD but none that I really hate. well, Hitman's habit of calling me Ace is kinda annoying but he's just such a swell guy otherwise that I can't help liking him.

Thor is a great merc. Him, Wolf and Steriod are maybe the best for the money. I also like Dimitri a lot. His forgetfullness often gets him killed before I finish but he is quite cool.

I just would like to know why you people hate igor and raider? they usually make part of my team, and, altough Raider is quite cocky, I don't have reasons to complain.

If you play a game with a full-female-team: you'll notice Ira/Meltdown sorta stand out.

Biff... I never liked him... I still remember: In JA1 and in Deadly Games when Biff kills someone he leaves your team and says something like: "I want go back to school" Sheeesh...

I checked Biff with an editor and I found out that in JA1 and JA:DG Biff have Wimpy Consience O.O

Why do you want to shoot locals?

Lynx sounds a Superman-wanna-be-kid, but when I needed him most, he failed to use his superb marksmanship.


Lynx also cries like a baby when he gets shot. And I hate him because I love Buzz! (Since JA:DG)

Um, to make the game harder? Maybe? (Less loyalty = less militia, less mine income)

I stoped using expensive guys, excepting Len and Raider(and Raven, to make the couple happy Wink ); I would recruit Scope instead of Lynx, since she is "Len style", about the quotes, like:"yes commander," and all that. Furthermore, she has one more level than Lynx, and as better agility(I think)

There are a lot mercs i hate, but i never hire them.
As im playing the German version i cant judge the English voices, but im pretty sure Ira sucks there a well. Annoing voice and dumb quotes. I really HATE IRA! But i never kill her...

I also hate every M.E.R.C. merc you can get in JA2.
I dont know if the UB mercs are in 1.13 aswell but that French guy, Guston or sth. like that and that one military guy are the best think M.E.R.C has imo. Even if hes French Razz
Only some of the A.I.M. mercs piss me of, like Buns or what her name is.
I used to give her to those incest rednecks, but i stopped that as i dont wanna torture them anymore.

Why do you hate ALL the MERC guys?

I mean I can understand that someone hates Flo, Cougar or Biff, but whats with Razor, Larry, or HAYWIRE (btw. he is one of my favourites)?



To answer the question:
I don't hate anyone, but Buns and Steriod is close to it...

I don't hate any of them. There all unique in there own way. And if there voices annoy you, you can always mute them. Which I do sometimes with Ira, her voice is the most grating on your nerves. Smile)))) And the other ones that grate on my nerves after awhile is Thor and Stephen.

For instance, I remember a situation where my mercs were inside a house, and a mob of redshirts outside. MD was the only guy with a grenade.
However, just like the X-COM series, the clueless civilians seem to have a knack for walking around the crossfire. I mean, bullets ricocheting, grenades exploding, and the idiots will just leave their shelters, then "check what's going on", and finally hide under the enemies feet. Brilliant.
With that said, it's no surprise that one of them decided to stay EXACTLY on the spot that I wanted MD to throw the grenade, and then, close the door. But regardless of the loss of loyalty, the situation was dire, and I decided that the civilian should get hurt or even die for the stupidity.
So I just shot some enemies with my other team members(badly wounded),SAVED, and when I was hoping for some relief, MD blatantly refused to throw the grenade!!! I had to throw somewhere else, it was not very effective...I survived in the end, but that annoyed me so much...
I remember a similar situation with Len and some dumb militia as well. He trained them btw...so that's kinda his fault! Very Happy

It's not a want-to-shoot locals.
Rather that when you 'manage' to shoot a civilian, that civilian turns hostile.
The 'battle' won't end untill that one hostile-character is dead.

How do you know if a merc is racist?

I mean I saw a line in proedit (racist: some/extreme/none) but _never heard_ "racist guys" (Bubba, Magic, etc) say _ANYTHING_ against other mercs. (with the exception of Grizzy, he seems to hate Q for being chinese)

When I hired Larry he never became drunk. It is very easy to keep him sober, if you don't forget to give him orders as soon as he stops. For this reason, he was one of my militia trainers, No.1 bomb dude, and No.2 doctor (he won't get stoned while doctoring!)

Hm... I think I don't understand this.

Racists hate someone for the colour of the skin or religion.


Gasket is NOT racist, in fact he is in love with Vicki. How can he be a racist when he is in love with a black girl?

Hating someone because of a prejudice (like Gasket/Steriod the Russkies, or Blood the white south africans) is stupid, but not racism.

Bubba is the SOB I can not handle, I like using Ice and Blood. And since Bubba worked with the chain gang their realationship never got better. Southern inbreed like the Hics, Bubba is on the wrong side. Now Gasket he is just an old time farm boy with no threads for russkies. He got some awsome comments to stuff, real hillibilley. Naa Bubba is the one I could rekin beeing put 6 ft. under.

Top of my bad list - Bubba. I can't stand his stuttering ass. Don't get me wrong, I like me some rednecks but man.....I hired him for the first time a few days ago and by the end of the first attack I was screaming at him "Spit it out you moron!!"

Also Biff, Flo and Haywire just bug me. Dunno what it is. Never hired Larry since I don't want to put up with his drug riddled body unless I can riddle it with bullets.

I usually end up grabbing Dynamo and Shank in the prison but try and kill them off first chance I get. No reloads for you guys. Sorry. Dems da rules.


From M.E.R.C. Razor is my main man though. Pretty good stats initially and he learns pretty quick. Just gotta work on his "psycho" thing.



Top of my wife's bad list (since she hear's the voices while she watches TV when I'm playing sometimes) - Ira. "You got my ear." I heard her talking the other day when she heard Ira's voice. "Yeah, yeah, I got something for your ear you nasty little thing. Now shut the hell up."

Shadow6, Norse: lol Smile Bubba tops my hate-list as well. His stuttering is bad enough, but if Bubba isn't a child molester, I don't know a merc who is. The only reason to hire him is to rid the world of some filth by terminating him in the most creative way possible. I wish he'd sell-out to Dedrianna like Mike. Tixa would be just the place to find him.

Fabius_Hirrus: If you need a merc who will toss a frag grenade in the middle of a bunch of school children, Bubba's your man.

Ira's voice AND comments are really irritating - I DON'T WANT YOUR EAR, ALRIGHT! Just shut up and train those militia, and don't give me that "Let's do something already" crap.

Dimitri, for a guy who is supposed to be good at throwing things . . . well, lets just say I'd be happy if you could hit the broad side of that farmhouse with a frag grenade. Just once. What a putz.

Biff and Gumpy are bad, bad, but they sometimes amuse me in a 'loser' sort of way. Flo, on the other hand, has absolutely nothing going for her.

Even though he's a poor fighting merc, Gasket totally cracks me up, so I like having him around. I try to let him get some fighting action without getting him killed.

Razor totally rocks! (even though he has some personal issues). I try to like Haywire 'cause Razor does, but Haywire always, always lets me down. His incometence always ends up getting himself killed, and usually causes one or more team members to go down with him. I coddle him, give him good equipment, let him hang with Razor, but it just doesn't matter; with Haywire, it's not a matter of IF he's gonna buy the farm, it's a matter of WHEN, and how many others on the team is he going to take with him. I might try using him as a suicide bomber one of these days, at least then, I'll be able to choose the when and where, and minimize the risk to the rest of the team who are depending on him.

Stephen would be cool if he were a mute. "Grooving!"

Meltdown is totally unhirable for me because of her foul mouth. I'm glad the designers made a bunch of mercs that don't use profanity every other sentence; this may be war, but that doesn't mean we can't have some decorum Smile

And what's up with Reaper, anyway? "Mother of God" every time he spots a bad guy? It's not as bad as all that Reaper; I mean, I thought you were the "Reaper", man, Mr. Silent Death and all that, so just get over it, stop profaning Deity all the time, and shoot 'em, already, geez.

Flo is the best Candidate to The Hicks Farm harem, and yes Reaper has some quotes that just does not compare. He is supposed to be some kind of an incredible killer, then again with some stupid lines that does not sound like the likings of this man.

Sometimes I recruit everyone of those stupid ones at M.E.R.C and send them down to the Bloodcats Den. Then just let them run around untill slayed by those hungry pussycats. Bad for morale? at that moment I only have 1 guy, so its bye bye to the loosers, now Gasget is cool, Bubba an as#, Biff an as#, Gumpy... na..., Larry... oh god man... naaa..., Haywire an as#, Razor rocks, Flo as mentioned earlier a perfect bride, the rest speaks for them selves, mostly keepers, but then sometimes I get them all killed just to piss of Spike
