Assassin's Creed Odyssey Mercenaries Guide
This Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Mercenaries Guide will tell you everything you need to know about the powerful foes seeking to take down our hero including level, weaknesses, location and any rewards you receive when taking them down. There are many Mercenaries to battle in AC Odyssey, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, rewards and challenges.

The Mercenary system is introduced very early in AC Odyssey. A famous figure on the Kephallonia Islands, Talos the Stone Fist, is sent to hunt you down. You can either avoid or defeat him, the choice is yours. The Mercenary system in AC Odyssey is dynamic. This means that content and characters are generated for your individual story. The Mercenaries you fight, the items they have, the locations they are found, there is a level of randomness to all of it.

As such we’ve compiled a list of basic information for the first Tier of Mercenaries to explain the basics of the system. You find a Merc based on your bounty level, defeating a Merc can reward powerful weapons or clues to locate other Mercs.
