Red Faction Wiki

Mercenary Heavies are enemies encountered in the first Red Faction game. They mostly carry Heavy Machine Guns and wear heavy armor, making them formidable opponents. Their attacks are inaccurate from long range, but from close range they deal a lot of damage. It's therefore advisable to keep a distance from these enemies and use long-range weapons. However near the Mercenary Barracks, they are seen to carry also Fusion Rocket Launchers and Precision Rifles to defend their base.
