Welcome to Day 2 of your briefing maggots! As outlined during yesterday's briefing,
we are going on quite the campaign across the world! But that’s the fun part, and
we don’t like having fun around here!
Gray Mann has been hard at work developing his robots to be even stronger than before. My calculations predict if you were to put one in front of a little baby, they’d cry for their mommy. We are not little babies however, we are mercenaries, and we don’t cry (mostly)! So what do you do when your partner in the lab lights the flame when he wasn’t told to? You fight fire with fire, and set your partner ablaze! To take down these robots, we’ll need to resort to cavemen tactics. Let's see what Gray Mann has been up to…
Our intelligence shows that Gray Manns robots have had serious upgrades to each robot unit.
Some missions feature brand new and upgraded robots, straight off the conveyor belt.
We’ve discovered that not all robots share the same changes, however. We’ve done our best to decode the raw code into something understandable for mercenaries, so they know what to expect going into battle:
When we destroyed Gray Mann in his first wave of robots, the Engineer decided to do a deep dive into their source code
and hardware to see what potatoes made them tick. Combing through ones and zeros and assembly code, he was able to get
working prototypes of RED fighter robots. Initially, these robots were able to shoot at targets like a little baby.
However, by tinkering with the robots he had designed for outer space combat, he was able to
successfully recreate some of the robots that troubled the mercenaries to fight on our side.
These RED Robots are your friends. They might not be made up of the same matter as you, and they might not share the same emotions, but they don’t shoot you, so don’t shoot back at them. Some missions assist you with these creations, helping you face the robot onslaught whenever it gets to be too much. You’ll see them as both normal robots and giants, in a wide variety of classes.
The first thing that will be delivered to you is modified upgrades!
With the new batch of orders from the Administrator, some of our dusty, rotting, and old-fashioned technology needed a serious overhaul. So the Engineer had a few drinks one night, drafted together some blueprints, and threw together some modified upgrades! Made out of leftover scrap and computer parts, there’s a lot that’s changed on your shopping list: price changes, stronger weapons, or even removing old and dusty upgrades.
Upgrades will change depending on which mission is being played, so see which ones you can use to your advantage. Every credit counts!
