A mercenary hireable from A.I.M., first appearing in Jagged Alliance 2.

Official description

"Don't mess with Meltdown. She may be smiling in her file photo, but that smile is certainly deceptive. This mercenary is legendary; an enemy once died at her feet from fear before Meltdown had even raised her weapon. As for her taste in weapons, the bigger, the better. In fact, Meltdown has a tendency for overkill in virtually every aspect of her life. Jessop is remarkably ambidextrous; she can easily fire two weapons simultaneously. " A.I.M Dossier

  • Meltdown has a good wisdom score, and her below mediocre statistics can easily be trained, if need be.
  • Her face is actually that of Linda Currie, as seen in the Credits.
