How to Play With Mercenary Character

The mercenary is somewhat harder to unlock. Mercenary is easily the hardest class in the game to play, and can easily be overwhelmed if you don’t take the time to clean up the area every now and then. The Mercenary is the only melee class in the game. Therefore, he is the best melee character in the gameThe hardest part of playing him for me used to be dealing with Wisps.

That said, Wisps will still be obnoxious. They are easily the most annoying thing you have to deal with when playing Merc, as you have to go out of your way to deal with them, and their near-guaranteed hit shots can pile up fast if you don’t take the time to clean them up. Prioritize them first in a fight – presuming there are no other more lethal threats such as bosses – then drop to the ground floor to clean up the other enemies. Just your primary and Whirlwind are often more than enough to deal with ground-borne mobs.

Bonus Tip: As you get a feel for your airgame, try estimating your max height and air Whirlwinding any stray Wisps that are close enough to the ground. You may be surprised what you can hit.

Don’t be disheartened if you miss a dash on a Wisp and fail to reset. Throw out a Whirlwind if you think you can still hit it, or drop an Eviscerate to compensate. Otherwise just bail or focus on cleaning the floor for a few seconds until you find an opportunity.

If you are struggling to play Merc, start on Drizzle and get some practice in. It takes a few runs to get a feel for the range and precision of his attacks, but once you flip that switch you’ll do far, far better with him.

Progression for Merc and the ideal builds are quite different than other classes. Good upgrades to hunt down for are

Soldier Syringe: Actually not that excellent of an upgrade. It’s definitely good, but you’ll be using your extra skills just as much if not more often than your primary.

Bandolier: While ranged characters may have to go out of their way to pick up these free cooldown resets, Merc will already be in their face and picking them up without realizing it. With the strength of this character being his abilities, Bandoliers will be especially valuable.

Monster Tooth: Same deal as Bandolier, except it buffs your sustain. I wouldn’t bother with the Fungus or the Slug if you have the choice, as you won’t be out of battle or standing still all too often. Focus on this and other sustain items that will help you in the heat of battle.

Extra Clip: You may initially wonder why you would bother with this upgrade when your secondary is already on a super-short 2-second cooldown, but grab one or two of these and you’ll come to realize just how powerful they are. On the ground, you become a blade dancer, dashing between hordes of enemies and rapidly dealing tons of splash damage. In the air, you basically get free bonus jumps to close distance. And 3 of these Whirlwinds will recharge in less time than a single dash. It’s really good.

Icicle: You’re a melee character. I don’t need to tell you why this is good. Will o’ the Wisp and Gasoline are also excellent for helping you clear ground swarms.

Afterburner: If you get this, you won. 3 dashes. With full resets you have 9. Using them all in succession with those full resets will mean you probably have a 4th charge by then and with resets on that you’ll have 12. You can go anywhere, do anything- you win that’s it you won.
