"I don't know why everyone thinks I'm psychotic, I'm not psychotic, I just have a *passion* for my job. " — Razor

A mercenary recruitable from M.E.R.C., Razor is amongst the initially available mercs when the player is first introduced to the organization.

Official description

"Razor's attention to detail and finesse with the blade saved him from being nicknamed "The Butcher". Ask him why he prefers a knife to a gun and every time he'll say "so much noise, so little challenge!" He takes pride in his ability to carve the alphabet -- or at least the vowels -- into his victims before they bleed to death.

Additional Info: Razor Lamont has occasionally been called certifiable. And he is indeed certified -- certified in killing!" - M.E.R.C. Dossier


  • knifing (expert)
  • v1.13  with new skill traits enabled - Melee, Throwing, Athletics 




Razor has low wisdom and poor marksmanship, so he will always be a pretty poor shot without serious training. He is, however, one of the best melee fighters in the game, since he has high strength, high dexterity and the knifing trait. With a machete in hand, Razor can lay some serious waste, if he can reach a melee range. He is very good at parrying enemy melee attacks as well. He is fast and strong, so he has an easier time than most running up to the enemies.
