Mercenaries was released on March 26th, 1999 as Blizzard's Map of the Week.[1]

It's an UMS map with three difficulty settings. (Labeled Normal, Difficult and Insane Difficulty.)


The Pirates of the New Trinidad space platform have been a menace to shipping in this sector for far too long. While we do not have the military force available to wipe them out, we do have cash that was provided by the affected shipping interests. We need you to hire a mercenary company and to have them destroy the pirate menace on their space station. When you arrive you will have to move your recruiter to the mercenary company you wish to hire, and then use them to destroy the pirates.

End of Briefing.
