The Mercenary Union can be thought of as "The Phonebook of hired guns." It is not an official group, players just register as members and try to complete posted contracts and those sent to them by others who wish for their specific services. The Mercenary Union was founded by Smoked. For a complete list of current contracts and Mercenary Listings, please visit [1]

Rules for being listed as a Mercenary

-Please post your submission for the mercenary union in the official topic. If people keep PMing me about it, my inbox will exploded, sending shrapnel into my spine and crippliing me forever. You don't want that do you? -All mercenary union (From here on referred to as M.U.) submissions must include a link to your profile -You don't have to post your suburb location if you're that paranoid. It just helps people determine who is closest to them and will land you a job faster. -Screen shots are required for proof of job completion. Post them here or PM them to me and the employer. If there are more than 2 screens, thumbnail them or edit them down to a bare minimum.

Point System

In the Mercenary Union, Points are the form of payment. If you're a good merc, you'll know how to follow the points to reach the top. Points will probably be a determing factor in desicion about who hires you. so here we go:

Reinforcing 1 survivor-2 points
Reinforcing a team of 2-10 survivor-1 point
Reinforcing a team of 11+ survivors-0 points
Rebarricading a safehouse lightly-2 points
Killing a Pker-2 points
Pking-1 point
Killing a zombie-1 point
Reving a player-2 points
healing a player (5 or 10 HP)- 1 point
tagging 7 buildings or firing 5 flares-1 point
Gathering Intellengence (Finding someone/reporting on defender's strength/ect)-2 points
+1 for every suburb traveled. The gathered intel wil be PMed to the employer.
Breaking down a barricade- 1 point

If a contract says X number of points for something, such a kill zombies(X), then the point number is a variable, and will depend on performance.

Question and Answer


A-STFU n00b. The points stack up. You can get mutliple points for the same thing. Example: Mission points: killing a zombie(7)+Reviving a player+Rebarricading Heavily=12 points total

Q-Why I fail?

A-Go home.

Q-So, I just post my mission on here and anyone can respond to it?

A-Yes. The Mercs listed check this page, and get the jobs they want. Post whatever, but be careful about posting group locations. PM the merc if you have sensitive information or just want that particular guy to do the job.

Q-How will I know that the merc isn't lying?

A-Screenshots my friend. "Before and After" screens are okay, which is when you take a screen showing barricade levels/number of zombies before and then another after, showing the difference you made. Or you could just follow them around, in which case you could do it yourself.

Q-HEY! I'm not a PKer! I was a mercenary when I was doing that. Take me off the list!

A-Sorry, PKing rules apply 24/7. Doesn't matter if you were working on a contract or not. You can take credit for a killed PKer here and on the bounty list.

Q-Do I get paid?

A-Only in points friend. Although if my trade idea is implemented, the employer could pay in items, but that's not for now.

Q-Can I belong to another group at the same time?

A-Well, this techniclly isn't a group, more like a phonebook of hired guns/axes. You can belong to another group, but you'll probably be kicked from it because missions will often require you splitting away and completing the contract. You can work with more than one person, so you don't have to fly solo. But for them to take credit, your partner(s) must be on the mercenary list.

Q-Hey! He's gonna take my points! Can I kill that merc?

A-Sure, why not? It's still a PK though.

Q- Im assuming if he doesnt send a screenshot of "that merc" you wont know is that correct?
