Which merc should I get? (Fletcher?Phoenix?Thunder or Fragger?)

I am a new player. I just played for 2 days straight. But just yesterday, I received a blue card(Obsidian?) of Fletcher. (I did not unlock Fletcher for 50,000 yet.)

Thus, I am now wondering if I should get fletcher. Is his blue card good?
Before I received Fletcher's new card, I wanted Phoenix because I like being a medic and I am quite weak at shooting currently(unless I am in a max lvl 6 match).

To be fair I never wanted Fletcher before I got guaranteed blue card. Nevertheless, (before i got fletcher) I was deciding between an assault class(Thunder or Fragger) or Phoenix.

Therefore, who should I get? (so hard to choose since it will take long time to get credits to buy another character.)

    Phoenix is a solid all round combat medic, Sawbz can fight better, and focus heal more, but is worse at pubs, while Phoenix has an AoE healing pulse.

    Thunder is.. controversial. Fragger is good if you're willing to spare some time training your game sense, so you can cook frags efficiently. Otherwise if you're in it for 'spolions, buy Nader. Her SMGs should teach you how to strafe and shoot, while still allowing you to go full auto with no problem, and her 5 round grenade launcher can bust EVs and salvo down cornered enemies.

  • The blue card rarity is called "Cobalt", and there are nine different cards for each merc, so i cannot say the one you received is good, but a good rule to go by on fletcher is that if the card has either the "quick draw" or "lock-on" augment, it should be usable.
    I personally would not advice getting fletcher as a new player, since the stickies are difficult to use. If i were you i'd get Phoenix, since he can heal himself very efficiently, and he gets great weapons to choose from.

    Thanks for the reply guys. This discussion took a while to get validated. Thus, I got fletcher and...... his sticky bomb is hard to use. But I will just stick with him for now since i have to get another 50,000 for another merc. I guess I should get phoenix next, but I kind of want to get redeye for fun next(for some reason.)

    Well, that's a rough one. I would've advised Bushwacker more as an engineer, but oh well. Fletcher is kind of an OPerc in the right hands, being that he's basically an assault class who just so happens to be an objective specialist. Try getting the Blishlok loadout for him as it is a great training gun for newer players. If you can't use his stickies in combat properly, just yse him to deny objectives, or to spawn trap a wave.

    Good luck.

    in the crafting section you may see much more cards unlike a bronze.
    the truth is, that from silver to cobalt they have different skins.
    Yup that's it.

  • I personally like Phoenix because of his speed and quick ability to heal himself and his team. I can run into a fight,
