Hardtack is your typical military marine hero in Agents of Mayhem, a new game in the Saints Row franchise that represents Volition’s unique take on open world action. The world becomes a sandbox, and you need to play as and develop multiple characters, treating each as weapons in a loadout, if you are to prevail.
But even said weapons in a loadout have their own unique perks and disadvantages, with their own special abilities, unique upgrades, gadgets, and more. Trying to keep track of all of that for each character, and knowing when best to use one, can be daunting and overwhelming- so we do it for you.
Check out the video below, as well as out enumeration of Hardtack’s abilities, to get an idea of how the character plays.
