Gigantic X is the kind of game with a lot of weapons, and a lot of way to wipe out aliens. So much so, that it can be difficult to get a decent grasp on just where to start at the beginning, especially when many of those weapons are split across three radically different mercenaries.

But that's why we're here. In this guide, we're going to break down the three mercenary classes you can find in Gigantic X, and hopefully, you'll find the one that fits you best, in addition to some more specific tips.

Each mercenary is going to have their own weapons to use, abilities in battle, dodge, special moves, and much more. You don't ever need to pick one and stick with them throughout the game, instead you should be swapping between the mercenaries and weapons that work best for a given mission, but that does mean you'll need to adjust to the playstyle of each mercenary.

Just read on for all the essential tips you need to know about the three mercenaries in Gigantic X.

The basic differences

The three mercenaries are known as Scardy, Titan, and Rhea. I don't know why Rhea gets such a normal sounding name compared to everyone else, but good for her.

Essentially we have a standard DPS class, a tank, and a spellcaster of sorts, and their mobility and skills follow those basic principles. For example, each character has a very different dodge, with Scardy having a basic, short dodge, Rhea sporting a massive teleport, and Titan not being able to dodge at all, instead having a damage-absorbing shield.

If you're new to the game, stick to Scardy, and use the other two in more simple, basic missions to get used to their abilities. Rhea is very good when it comes to taking enemies down at a distance, while Titan is useful for defense missions where he can stay stationary and wipe out hordes of foes.
