So, I was in Pala, on my way to get a mission, when I bumped into an ill tempered merc. Now, I usually run into guys, even leap on them to see what reaction I get. Sometimes, its "Sorry Buddy, my fault" or "Hey, watch it". If you keep doing it, the reaction gets stronger.
Well, this guy was pretty aggressive on the first hit. So, I jumped him, and he screamed, and I do mean, screamed something about me being a Mother Trucker,... as if I drove a truck for Mother's Bread.... So I bumped him again, and he pulled a pistol on me and unloaded. There were a bunch of other mercs around, and I was toast.
It's funny when you later have a bigger rep, and they start to back away from you if you just go near them.
