Manda Securities:

    In General 

  • Dark Is Not Evil: Some of the contractors you can recruit wear dark/black clothing and gear, but they're not the bad guys.
  • Hello, [Insert Name Here]: Players have the option to choose the name for the PMC company and the player's name only. From the 2.1.0 update, you can change the PMC's emblem and secretary, the latter being available if your PMC capabilities are at level 20.
  • Multinational Team: The rank and file are from various countries.
  • Private Military Contractors: A PMC recruited to intervene in the Makeneke Civil War before it can go nuclear.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: The contractors come from a variety of backgrounds. From law enforcement, private security, military and intelligence with ex-guerrillas in the mix to civilians. You may recruit contractors with some... interesting backgrounds such as actors, Youtube reality stars/gamers, secretaries, military reporters, bakers and even company officials who left their cushy jobs, all of them eager to fight the enemy.
  • The Dreaded: As players progress through the game, enemy forces will fear its reputation for its tenacity.



A newly recruited contractor who was sent to Africa in Makeneke to assist UN peacekeepers in the ethnic civil war between the Wanato and the Nutu. The player takes over from Garheim after he's killed in an anti-Nutu op where he's exposed as helping both sides.


An experienced contractor. He's MS' leading contractor in the Makeneke op and is the training officer. He has a daughter named Matilda, who can be one of the player's PMC secretaries.

  • But Thou Must!: Garheim won't let the players access the gift box when you play the game for the first time, meaning you need to go through the tutorial.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Garheim's a sergeant in rank and acts like a nasty jerk, even when he teaches the players the basic functions of the game tutorial.
  • Expy: He's pretty clearly just Sergeant Gunnery Hartman, just not as brash and without the heavy cursing. Hell, he even rips the name of Sergeant Gerheim from The Short-Timers, one of the inspirations for Full Metal Jacket (albeit, obviously, with one letter changed).
  • Playing Both Sides: He secretly backs the Nutu aside from assisting the Wanato forces as a MS contractor.
  • Starter Villain: He's a major bad guy the players get to kill.
  • The Face: Garheim's face is seen in MS posters in the introduction.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: Garheim takes control of the game and gives the players the name "Maggot". It sticks until the tutorial ends.
  • Walking Spoiler: Talking about Garheim in any way will reveal that he's in cahoots with Nutu forces.


An experienced Wanato officer who is rescued by MS contractors in an anti-Nutu op in the tutorial.

  • Killed Off for Real: If Dufusi gets killed in a field op, there's no way to recruit him again.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Once Garheim is out of the picture, Dufusi urges the player to take control of Manda in order to start over and repair its reputation.
  • Scary Black Man: Since he goes out in the field and you fight bad guys, Dufusi can be this.
  • Took a Level in Badass: He's mentioned to have been a baker prior to the civil war.


An ex-police officer who has joined Manda Securities at about the same time as the player. Of the player's five starting mercenaries, he will always have the same name, background, and profile picture (the other four are randomized).


The three secretaries who the player can recruit in the reformed companynote  after Garheim's trechery was exposed publicly.
