Overview Edit

Mercenaries is one of the powersets. It is a Mastermind primary power set.

Despite their reputations, Mercenaries are extremely loyal dedicated soldiers. They are the best at what they do, and they always follow orders, exactly what a Mastermind needs. Mercenaries typically use conventional weapons and all Mercenaries have body armor that gives them resistance to smashing and lethal damage and their training makes them resistant to confusion and placate.

Notes Edit

It is a known issue that when fully upgraded (with Tactical Upgrade), if you order the Commando and Spec Ops to attack from very long range, they will all repeatedly use their long range, long recharge time powers (sniper shot for Spec Ops, LRM for Commando) but will not close range to use any other powers. You must force them to move to closer range to get them to use the remainder of their attacks.
