Mercenary system in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey

As you live out your Odyssey, you will soon notice that the life of adventure and collecting bounties is appealing not only to you!

Whether you commit a crime or simply cross the wrong person, another mercenary may be sent to make sure you have been taken care of.

Defeating other Misthios will not only earn you rewards, but also recognition - every time you take down or recruit a mercenary higher up in the hierarchy, you will move up in your respective tier.

Clearing each tier will grant you permanent in-game perks.

Those can be viewed by pressing the assigned button displayed in the bottom right hand corner of the screen in the Mercenaries menu.
Mercenary tier rewards

Not every mercenary will be targeted with a Message Board bounty. Sometimes, you will need to find out who and where they are yourself.

You can uncover the identity of any unknown mercenary by encountering them in the in-game world or collecting clues about them.

Once discovered, you can see each mercenary's name, story, strengths or weaknesses, as well as the reward you can expect when you defeat them.

To reach the top tier, you must defeat 52 higher ranking mercenaries. Each fallen mercenary will be replaced by another keen bounty hunter within 10 - 15 minutes.

Challenging mercenaries from the lower tiers will still yield rewards but will not help you progress.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
