No Questions Asked: A Guide to Dahshat Company Greetings, valued customer. You have made a wise choise by hiring Dahshat Company, a division of Boylik Corp, to enforce and protect your interests. We employ only the best and most well-equipped mercenaries in the whole of the Human Sphere. No matter the task at hand, Dahshat has the tools you need to resolve any problematic situation. Our company motto is "no questions asked," and we prefer to let your money and our firepower do the talking. So, what can Dahshat Company do for you today? Spoiler: Overview Introduction: Welcome to Dahshat Company, an exotic blend of some of the best stuff Yu Jing, Haqqislam, Ariadna, and Mercenaries has to offer. Dahshat may at first appear to be a hodge-podge of random units plucked from their original factions, but the amount of internal synergy and support available makes the whole greater than the sum of the parts. Dahshat doesn't field Zuyong like Invincible Army, it doesn't run Ghulam like Ramah, and it certainly fields Bounty Hunters unlike any other faction in the game. If Dahshat is not your first faction, you may recognize some familiar faces, but get ready to learn to love those units all over again for an entirely different reason. If Dahshat is indeed your first faction, then to you I say welcome, and I hope this guide provides you with all the information you need to start kicking ass. Affordability Is Everything Throughout this guide you'll probably get tired of reading the following descriptors: "cheap," "affordable," "efficient," "reasonable," and many synonyms thereof. Dahshat Company is not bereft of premium options, but the bulk of our army lists tend to be incredibly efficient profiles that forego the bells and whistles of comparable units in order to deliver maximum firepower and/or utility for the lowest cost possible. Dahshat tends to go wide rather than deep, relying on multiple complimentary or redundant models rather than singular, elite, take-all-comer profiles. Access to a huge variety of cheap orders means that 15+ order lists are very playable and quite common. All in all, if you're looking for massive combat groups that don't skimp on firepower, Dahshat Company is for you. Regularly Irregular The typical sectorial in Infinity has access to an average of 2-3 irregular troops, usually in the form of warbands or mercenaries. Dahshat Company has a whopping 6 unit entries with that characteristic, and many are extremely important role-players within the army. Hunzakuts and Libertos form the core of the midfield skirmishers, while Bashi, Kum, and McMurrough offer specialized offensive options that can't be found elsewhere. Rounding out the list are Warcors, a common sight in many human forces. Irregular troops are a staple in Dahshat, and learning to manage combat groups and orders with higher-than-average numbers of these units is an important skill to master. Hacking as a Precious Resource Perhaps thanks to the influence of the Aridanan hires, Dahshat Company is notoriously bereft of hacking devices. The sum total of hackers available amounts to two standard hacking devices, two assault hacking devices, and a singular EVO; there is not a single killer hacking device in sight. For a faction so chock-full of HI, remotes, and repeater coverage, this means that hacking devices are a precious resource to be guarded carefully. Playing Dahshat often requires constant vigilance as to the location of friendly and enemy repeaters, hackers, and hackable assets. A single slip can mean the end of your hacking network and a tough road ahead for your hackable attack pieces. This isn't to say that Dashat is incapable of fighting and winning on the infowar front, but without any elite hackers to lean on, it's definitely something that requires an expert touch. A Fireteam for Everyone There is perhaps no army in the entirety of the Human Sphere with as much potential fireteam variety as Dahshat. Only Tohaa rivals the sheer customizability of Dahshat, from the core all the way down to the duo. AVA4 Authorized Bounty Hunters and personalities such as Father Lucien Sforza, Miranda Ashcroft, and Valerya Gromoz offer a huge variety of firepower and utility to any link team, to the point that these mercs will often outnumber the "original" unit. Dahshat offers the opportunity to bring exactly the tools you want for any given task and link them together, and offers extreme customization to player preference.
