The Merc is an enemy infantry unit that appears in the Act Of Agression Campaign.
They are hired by Cartel to disrupt the United Nations and their VIPs at the start of the level When the Wolves Howl, and also make up Zhang Yao's personal contingent as she flees during the first level, "The Hunt For Yao".
They are relatively weak compared to most other units, but several of them can pin and kill a Marine or FELIN.
The Mercenary is a light paramilitary unit. They are armed with a standard kalashnikov AK-47, and deal small amounts of damage. They are very weak against vehicles and are almost always encountered in small packs to improve effectiveness.
The mercenaries are from a shady organisation called the White Wolf, which are made of former soldiers of the Transitaria War selling the service of men who will do anything for money. They are corrupt and have no moral obligations, accepting work from Olympus, who funded Yao's covert operation to help collapse the world economy. Cartel's Heliopolis cell, however, discovers Damocles and Piet Vermaak, and instead switches to their more ruthless and specialised tactics, negating the need for the Mercenary, hence why he is not encountered in the later Chimera levels.
