MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries - The Official Strategy Guide is a guide book for Activision's 1996 computer game MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries set in the BattleTech universe. It provides information on the game mechanics, tips and strategies to completing the game. Chapter 5 provides Technical Readout style information on the 'Mechs that can be purchased within the game. Chapters 6 and 7 give a walkthrough of the missions and how to complete them.


Like the computer game for which it is a supplement product, this book was produced under a valid license yet does not meet the criteria for canon. Its contributions to the BattleTech universe must thus be considered apocryphal.

From the back cover[edit]

You may have made it to Khan of your Clan in MechWarrior 2, but an even bigger challenge awaits in this new "prequel" from the BattleTech Universe. Combat-hardened pilots like you must cast aside loyalty and honor in your quest for money, power and fame.
