Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code - Character 101

There are five different ways to inflict genocide upon entire species of evil bastards. Which is right for you?

The Mercenary is Untold Legends' answer to that eternal, fantasy hack-and-slasher question, "Hey, where's the gorgeous babe who trots around in skimpy battle armor and slings around a massive, bladed weapon as if it were made of styrofoam?"

So clearly, most fellows will agree thatif you have to stare at a character onscreen for 15 or more hours, you could choose a worse target than the Merc. However, she's not just a looker; this Amazon is arguably the most well-rounded character in the game(feel free to insert your favorite "...and her abilities aren't bad either! Zing!" joke here).

The Merc's average speed makes her faster than the Guardian, but still far from the quickest character in the game. Also, while she could easily be mistaken for a dominatrix in her church clothes, the Merc's supple, feminine form can neither dish out nor absorb physical punishment to the vast degree that the Guardian can.

That said, the Merc still hews her fair share of enemies to bits and breaks more than just their hearts. She spins a dual-sided poleaxe in wide swaths, and her long-range weapon is a device that spits rotary saw blades,something that can obviously go a long way toward clearing your path. Like all of the warriors, the Mercenary has a beast form. Hers is a sort of lithe, cat-dog hybrid, shown here with a mischievous grin.

However, when the fur really starts flying, wise players will learn to fall back on the Mercenary's fiery assortment of magical spells and abilities. She can send flaming or electrified saw blades tearing into enemy gullets, create a spinning ring of firearound herself or channel the power of the sun into a searing ray of white-hot, burning-holes-in-flesh-iness. She also has some poison attacks, but those appear to be one of her slower killing methods.


I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
