Game Mercenary is a brand new innovation on a concept that has been around since the invention of video games, gamers helping other gamers. Whether by word of mouth or online tip hotlines. Game Mercenary offers a new way for gamers to connect and network with each other to improve and enhance everyone’s gaming experience.
“Who is Game Mercenary: Game Mercenary was started by three friends who have played video games their entire lives, starting from Atari and are now currently PS4 gamers. We were playing Destiny in what little spare time we had between work and family, but the game was proving to be extremely challenging (if you’ve ever played Destiny you know exactly what we are talking about)! Online resources such as YouTube videos, gaming websites and Reddit were not clearly explaining the requirements of certain aspects of the game, so we had to figure out for ourselves (WTF is an Oracle and why am I shooting it?). It occurred to us that if we just had a person who would help walk us through some of the more complicated parts of the game, it would save us time and frustration, and help us get to the levels we wanted to be at to kill more aliens and get better guns and gear! So we decided to explore the idea of a gamer networking service, for gamers, by gamers.
What is Game Mercenary? We are a on demand live gamer assistance network, the first of its kind! When you need help getting through a tough portion of a game, need a high level teammate for your squad or want to learn new skills in a game you can log in and hire an expert who will help you with all these things! They will contact you live over the network to walk you through the missions in person! No more searching through indecipherable online threads, just get what you need fast! Beta goes live in less than a week so follow, tag friends and stay tuned! #gamer #gaming #gamerassistance #gamernetwork #pcgaming #playstation #ps4 #ps3 #xbox #xbox360 #xboxone #videogames #beta #gamemercenary #gamergirl #gamerguy
How it works: A user will sign up for the service at our website, immediately receiving access to our database of experienced, trained and on demand expert gamers. Hiring a Mercenary is about the same cost as the coffee that you buy every morning, or the snack bar that you eat for a quick energy boost. After the gamer fills out a specific mission request form, the Mercenary will connect with the gamer directly over the online networks and help them perform whatever task needed to be completed, or provide them exactly the information that they needed to be able to advance in the game. Super easy, super quick!
Why are we different?: Although it follows in the wake of the Nintendo Power Tip Line (R.I.P.), we are leaps and bounds beyond the service that had been provided for 24 years strong. The emergence of internet resources made a phone help center obsolete, but as with many things in life, there is no substitute for a real person, and in this case, a real gamer when you need to get something done. In fact, many of the games today are team based multiplayer arenas and missions, so having someone next to you who knows what they are doing will only make you better! With the thousands of video game releases over PC and other video game platforms, we have discovered a great need for live gamer assistance, and the games are only getting more and more complicated!
Who can benefit from Game Mercenary?: The best part about Game Mercenary is that gamers of all skill levels, ages, backgrounds, and lifestyles can play a part in the Game Mercenary dynamic. Gamers that need assistance will hire and be paired with gamers that genuinely want to help other gamers (the emergence of the “Raid Sherpa” in Destiny is a great example). Expert gamers can enlist as mercenaries and be paid to help and guide other gamers, and be paid for it too, for why shouldn’t an expert get paid to pass on knowledge just like in any other industry? Even the most experienced of gamers will always have something to work towards, the growing popularity of Major League Gaming, YouTube and Twitch streaming and as always game testing will give gamers something to work towards no matter how good they are. There will always be someone who you can learn from, we at Game Mercenary just want to make sure that you can find that person when you need to!
The Gamer Movement: One of the most important aspects of Game Mercenary is the promotion of gamer equality and a high standard of gamer conduct. You will never be called a “noob” at Game Mercenary, our Mercenaries and teams are here to grow and develop your skills. No one will ever be discriminated against for their race, sex, religion or any other gaming preference. If you love playing video games then you are welcome at Game Mercenary, period, end of story. We want to make all gamers unite in their love for the wonders of gaming from Mario to Sonic, Halo to Battlefield, Pokemon to World of Warcraft and beyond. Join The Gamer Movement and bring gamers together!

The founders of Game Mercenary, Andrew Li & Rick Fredkin, are super excited about their new endeavors and cant wait to see you guys taking part of this program.
This seems like a really unique way for people to get themselves farther into a game that they may or may not have trouble getting into.
I know for a fact that there are some trophies that I had trouble getting on my PlayStation because I couldn’t find the right person to do it with; now there is an easy way to find help!
