Heal, Ranged Damage
- "If the best defense is a good offense, the Mercenary’s got the most intimidating defense in the galaxy; heavily modified blasters and deadly heat-seeking missiles make the Mercenary a mobile heavy weapons platform. There’s no problem extra firepower can’t solve, and no one with sense gets between a Mercenary and his or her target. All Mercenaries learn how to fire two blasters at once, and can opt to learn the skills of a Bodyguard, using state-of-the-art medical technologies to heal and protect allies; acquire an Arsenal of advanced rockets to rapidly deal damage; and access Advanced Prototypes including fiery missiles and darts to reduce an enemy’s survivability and regenerative capacity."
- ―In-game Codex (Game Rules)
