Where's the nuke?!

#1 Posted by Everyones_A_Critic (6296 posts) -

I'm 48% through the game and just unlocked the pirate faction and have done every mission for every faction leading up to it. Whose missions do I do to unlock the nuke!? I heard you get it from the mechanic, but I'm not sure.

Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing. But really, I think it probably won't be available in the game until we're close to the end.

Yeah that's what all the signs are pointing to thus far. There's still a lot of unknown shit about this game, there's two secret achievements nobody knows about, 100% checklist etc.

Is bribing a faction the only way to make a faction nice towards you again?  the PLAV is hostile against me and so i cannot start their contracts.  how can i make them neutral again?

I haven't and won't play Mercs 2, but in most games with factions you boost up your standing with faction X by killing their enemies. That might work.

I have not played Mercs 2, but in the original you get other factions to like you by killing their rival faction as well as just bribing them if I remember correctly.

You can bribe a faction by talking to Fiona at the PMC, you need some money though.

You can get a faction to like you again by capturing or killing their HVT's.  It depends on how much you are in the doghouse for on how many HVT's to kill or capture, but it works.

This.

You can then buy more from your mechanic for $1M each.

Keep waiting. you'll find it in your quest for revenge. Just keep playing. Fiona will have some revenge info for you. Then you'll find out.

By the way, if you do all the contracts for Universal Petroleum, P.L.A.V. and verify blanco, the game gives you the "Get Solano" mission.  If you haven't done the missions for the A.N. and China DON'T DO THE MISSION.  It would seem that it is impossible to win.  The roads you need to take are not available yet so you'll get so far and then you can't go any farther in the mission.  I just wasted 45 minutes trying to do this and figured that out.
