Overview

Developed and published by Activision, Ghost Bear's Legacy is the first of two expansion packs for MechWarrior 2. The title is a reference to Clan Ghost Bear, an important faction in the BattleTech fiction. This expansion pack puts the player in control of a warrior from the titular Clan, with an arsenal of fourteen new BattleMechs; it also adds a new campaign with 17 playable missions to complete.
 

Plot

Mad Cat BattleMech
The player takes on the role of a new Clan Ghost Bear MechWarrior working out of a facility in the Inner Sphere after the end of the Refusal War. This large-scale conflict has split Clan Wolf in half and left much of Clan space in disarray; alliances between the Clans are fragile. When small-scale mercenary attacks on the player's base escalate into a much more agressive raid by the Draconis Combine, the remains of the founders of Clan Ghost Bear are stolen. Clan leadership quickly responds with deadly force, only to discover than the Draconis Combine 'Mechs used in the raid had previously been captured by the Smoke Jaguars.
 
The already weak Clans must now treat this situation with even more caution, as any unnecessary infighting between faction will make Clan space especially vulnerable to attacks by Inner Sphere powers. The investigation uncovers two rogue commanders of the supposedly friendly remnant of Clan Wolf. As such, the true Wolf leadership allows the Ghost Bear units to withdraw from their territory in order to better prepare for a final showdown with the thieves.
 

Campaign Structure

There are twelve core missions in the campaign to recover the Clan founders' genetic material. If a player is able to complete all 12 missions in succession without dying a single time or failing to complete a mission, this feat is rewarded with an additional five bonus missions that tell the story of the warrior's trial to gain higher status within Clan Ghost Bear.

New Clan 'Mechs

In addition to the fifteen 'Mechs featured in the previous game, Ghost Bear's Legacy includes nine new playable Clan 'Mechs during its campaign. This list includes two new Light 'Mechs, one Medium, two Heavy, and four Assault. Several new Inner Sphere 'Mechs such as the Atlas make appearances as well, though only as enemies.
