"We are the men of intrinsic value, who can strike our fortunes out of ourselves, whose worth is independent of accidents in life, or revolutions in government: we have heads to get money, and hearts to spend it."

Mercenaries are terran soldiers who fight for hire.

Game UnitsEdit

Wings of LibertyEdit

In the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty campaign, mercenaries are more powerful versions of basic units. Mercenary contracts may be purchased with credits from Graven Hill, a recruiter in Hyperion's cantina.[1] A mercenary unit may only be hired after its base unit is unlocked by playing the appropriate campaign mission. The War Pigs are the exception; they are hired free of charge after "Zero Hour".

During missions, a mercenary squad is trained at a merc compound. They have no build time, and arrive nearly instantly at the compound by drop pod. There is a short cooldown until the mercenary squad may be trained again. The squad size varies by the unit, and there is a limit to the number of squads that may be trained for each mercenary per mission. Mercenaries benefit from armory upgrades and laboratory research that benefit their base unit.[2]

Mercenaries have unique unit models—60% of the model is altered to ensure the models are unique, but still recognizable.[3]
