A mercenary available from M.E.R.C., Bubba is the first "new" mercenary that Speck brings on to bolster the roster. He appears after Tim "Gumpy" Hillman, and before Larry Roachburn.

Official description

  • Bubba, while very (very) stupid and hated by some, is cheap and a decent shot. His low Agility makes it hard for him to keep up with other mercs but as long as you give him time its not a huge problem. He is also a tolerable mechanic and even has some skill with explosives. Despite having a poor dex, he has the Hand-to-Hand skill, and he can be a great choice for the EFC in San Mona as his great health, massive strength and a modicum of skill make him a killer in melee.
  • Speaks with an incredibly heavy stutter, and seems to have a lot of issues in general.
  • Aggressive
  • Best used as a close-quarters tank, due to his ability to sustain a lot of punishment.
  • Gives the impression of having been both the bully and the lonely outsider throughout most of his childhood.
