Template:Infobox The Killer Suits are Nicole Horne's personal hitmen and bodyguards.


The Killer Suits are part of the security forces serving Aesir Corporation and take part in many missions ranging from VIP protection to assassination.

They are always wearing dark business suits with ties and white shirts.  Most of them wear sunglasses and sport earpieces with mouth microphones.  Some wear trenchcoats while discarding the earpiece and microphone.

They are probably the hardest type of enemy to beat as they are heavily armed, with Ingrams or Colt Commandos. Some even wield Jackhammers or M79s.

They share similar weapons to the Mercenaries, but what makes the Killer Suits harder is the fact that they have more precise aim and they are known to dive through the air, similar to Max. However, they don't shoot as they dive.


They were hired by Nicole Horne to protect Aesir Corporation and to kill its enemies. According to one of them, the job pays big time and they are very happy doing what they do.

  • The Killer Suits, particularly the ones in dark business suits and sunglasses, could be a reference to the Agents from the 1999 science-fiction-action film, The Matrix
  • Some Killer Suits are heard saying that they only kill as a regular 9 to 5 job and therefore show no loyalty to Aesir and kill only for money.
  • It is unlikely that "Killer Suits" are the official name for them. It is only what Max refers to them as.
