    Hey folks,

    So with AVA 4 Authorized Bounty Hunter Wildcards, the new 12-point SMG profile, and the wacky AVA 4 of Brawlers, Odalisques and Zuyongs (the latter getting a Rui Shi in-link, admittedly), what fun and inventive uses are you excited to put Authorized Bounty Hunters up to in links?

    I've been looking at a reactive ghulam sniper link with a couple of bounty hunters fishing for ODD:

    GHULAM Lieutenant Rifle + Light Shotgun / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)
    GHULAM Doctor Plus (MediKit) Rifle + Light Shotgun / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 16)
    GHULAM Sniper Rifle / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 16)
    BOUNTY HUNTER Sniper Rifle / 2 Breaker Pistols, Knife. (0.5 | 21)
    BOUNTY HUNTER Sniper Rifle / 2 Breaker Pistols, Knife. (0.5 | 21)

    1.5 SWC | 86 Points

    ...A budget Brawler objective running Haris, using an ABH for the active turn gun...

    BRAWLER (Fireteam: Haris) Rifle + Light Shotgun / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 17)
    BRAWLER Doctor (MediKit) Rifle + Light Shotgun / Pistol, Knife. (0 | 20)
    BOUNTY HUNTER Red Fury / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 21)

    1 SWC | 58 Points

    ...or for a cheaper core-linked Rui Shi, an active turn "Zuyong Core" featuring no Zuyongs!

    BOUNTY HUNTER Submachine Gun, Akrylat-Kanone / Breaker Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)
    BOUNTY HUNTER Submachine Gun, Akrylat-Kanone / Breaker Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)
    BOUNTY HUNTER Submachine Gun, Akrylat-Kanone / Breaker Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)
    BOUNTY HUNTER Red Fury / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 21)
    RUI SHI Spitfire / Electric Pulse. (1.5 | 20)

    2 SWC | 77 Points

    What are your uses for the ABH (and other merc Wildcards) in Dahshat? What crazy links do you want to run?

    Rafiq Red Fury & ABH SMG (probably with the bike :) ) for a cheap objective grabbing Fireteam: Duo.

    I like the real A-Team:

    SFORZA FTO (Holoprojector L1) Viral Rifle + Adhesive Launcher, Nanopulser / Heavy Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 28)
    MIRANDA ASHCROFT Boarding Shotgun, Nanopulser / Pistol, Monofilament CC Weapon, Knife. (0 | 23)
    VALERYA GROMOZ Hacker (Hacking Device UPGRADE: Expel) Combi Rifle + Pitcher / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 21)
    BRAWLER (Multispectral Visor L2) MULTI Sniper / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 28)
    BRAWLER Heavy Rocket Launcher / Assault Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 18)

    3.5 SWC | 118 Points

    The HRL Brawler could be any other though or a SMG ABH for some cheapness and some Booty fun.
    Add Saito, a Hulang and/or McMurrough to make it complete. :)

    I did this a few days ago and loved. it. Unfortunately I rolled up an Adhesive Launcher!

    ZÚYŎNG (Fireteam: Haris, Tactical Awareness) Combi Rifle + 1 TinBot B (Deflector L2) / 2 Breaker Pistols, Knife. (0.5 | 34)
    ZÚYǑNG Lieutenant (AutomediKit) HMG / 2 Breaker Pistols, Knife. (1 | 39)
    ZÚYǑNG (Forward Observer) Combi Rifle / 2 Breaker Pistols, Knife. (0 | 28)
    RUI SHI Spitfire / Electric Pulse. (1.5 | 20)
    BOUNTY HUNTER Submachine Gun, Akrylat-Kanone / Breaker Pistol, Knife. (0 | 12)

    3 SWC | 133 Points

    I want to try this. I think the Brawler sniper needs to be leveraged with all of the smoke but a second Brawler is a bit much. so keep the cost down with the ABH sniper.

    BRAWLER (Fireteam: Haris) Rifle + Light Shotgun / Pistol, Knife. (0.5 | 17)
    BRAWLER (Multispectral Visor L2) MULTI Sniper / Pistol, Knife. (1.5 | 28)
    BOUNTY HUNTER Sniper Rifle / 2 Breaker Pistols, Knife. (0.5 | 21)

    2.5 SWC | 66 Points

    This could be a great button pusher Haris. Tac Aware Zuyong with Tinbot B, supporting Gromoz and the ABH as cheap filler but always great potential.

    One of the wonderful things you can do with a Wildcard Core is make ad hoc fireteam decisions based on what you expect to face. Consider the following:

    ZÚYǑNG Lieutenant (AutomediKit) HMG / 2 Breaker Pistols, Knife. (1 | 39)

    SFORZA FTO (Holoprojector L1) Viral Rifle + Adhesive Launcher, Nanopulser / Heavy Pistol, Electric Pulse. (0 | 28)

    All of these models are linkable, so you can form whatever teams you'd like depending on your plan of action. Send Sforza and the Red Fury with the Haris up a flank, and have the Zuyong HMG and Rui Shi spearhead the other three to open the way for them. Or swap things around a bit and have Valyria and the Rui Shi accompany the Haris and use the Core as a more traditional firebase. Use the Akrylat-kanone Bounty Hunters as your ARO picket since you'll still retain your burst bonus with two 3-man teams, not to mention you can reform your fireteam with any subset of them as long as you can meet up somewhere on the table. You can even have Sforza pretend to be something like a Brawler MSV2 Sniper or Zuyong Missile Launcher to influence your opponent's deployment and tactics.

    This approach isn't for everyone, as it can lead to fairly extreme analysis paralysis given the sheer number of combinations you can form. And it's a pretty big commitment that might limit your other options. But I think the versatility of the setup is worth exploring to see if it will work for you.

    On a final, somewhat related note: Sforza's stock is going way up with each new release for infinity. There's a ton of 1W + NWI + Shock Immunity troopers seeing play right now, and Sforza is a wonderful tool against them.

    I like it! Being able to change your links on the fly can be very handy.

    BTW. If you are planning on having your ABH in a link, and start off with SMG+AK, it would be best to do Booty Level 1 instead of two. It could suck to get a motorcycle and it's tied to a link. They both have about the same chance of getting another BS weapon or grenades.

    I wasn't even considering this! Even just walking four SMG bounty hunters to about the 16-20 inch mark might be a godsend to serve as filler for a more active link as it takes losses, like the Zuyongs or Odalisques. Ditto a couple bounty hunters just sitting in the backfield near to a Ghulam or Brawler reactive link.
