Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge packshot image
The unofficial successor of the cult series Jagged Alliance.You are at the diamond coast, a region submerged in chaos and wars, governed by an unprincipled dictator. They are ruled by a state of emergency and you must decide for whom you put the life of your mercenaries at risk.
Your task is to stop a ruthless dictator on the west coast of Africa. In order to achieve this goal, you command an elite unit of 30 well-trained mercenaries and have access to over 150 different weapons. To dispossess the dictator is a tactical challenge: Five hostile fractions are raging in the African country, so you have to interact carefully between the warring parties.
It is essential to plan your operation well, therefore you will be provided with various background information from different in-game sources. You should carefully consider the order of the missions as well as the formation of your team of different combat specialists – the mercenaries all have specific powers. And finally, you should be thorough in choosing between the large number of weapons – from handguns and assault weapons to sniper rifles, machine guns, and grenade launchers.
Once you have picked your team, you choose the next operation site on a clearly laid out map. In turn-based battles, each of your mercenaries has over 25 action points at the start of each round, that they will use for shooting, running, changing weapons or further actions. How many actions a mercenary can perform depends on their specific attributes and on the type of weapon they use. In addition, you should consider which body zones a mercenary aims at as each hit causes a different degree of damage, and the hit probability varies.
