MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries is the second sequel product released by Activision to MechWarrior 2 and is the first full standalone sequel. The game gives players a chance to lead the life of a mercenary captain in the futuristic Battletech timeline, engaging in mech combat in a first person 3D view and managing resources through contracts and salvage.
Players can pilot a variety of mechs but must acquire them through money earned from contracts or from salvage. Before each mission, players must negotiate the terms of a contract, then travel to that destination and fulfill the agreed to terms. Assignments range from simple one mission garrison defense to extended multi-mission attack sequences.
In multi-mission contracts, players cannot make extensive repairs to their mechs between missions; only field repairs and ammunition re-supplies are possible. Between contracts, players can purchase new mechs or parts, sell their own or profit from salvaged mechs and parts. Players can also hire several pilots who can be given simple commands during the course of battle to help in missions.
Through the course of the game, players will go through a storyline that covers events ranging from the arrival of the Clans in the Inner Sphere to their final defeat. The storyline is extended by a series of special pre-scripted contracts and players can also choose from the game's other randomly generated contracts. ~ Kyle Knight, All Game Guide
