Despite getting overhauled, the Mercenary will have almost the exact same footprint that it previously had (sans a few utility abilities from Soldier Skills and Mercenary Skills). As such, I'm going to skip going into the heavy detail that I usually do because very little is actually changing. Notable is that if an ability is gained as a result of a specific weapon tree, it can only be used while that specific weapon is equipped.

Spoiler It should be noted that the Incendiary Grenade and Stun Grenade of the Python tree are launched MGL style instead of thrown because they're being launched from the W34 itself. Also, Incendiary is just a Smoke Grenade with some Damage Over Time tacked on to make it unique from the Rifleman's Smoke Grenade.
