  +
'''Merryweather Security Consulting''' is a private military company and security contractor featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto Online]]''. They are one of the main groups of antagonists in ''GTA V''.
  +
  +
==Events of ''GTA Online''==
  +
Sometime before the game's start, Merryweather is cleared by the [[United States of America|American]] government to begin operating on U.S. soil, both in service of the government and of other organizations in the private sector.
  +
  +
It begins experiencing setbacks and problems almost immediately after their clearance. During ''[[GTA Online]]'', many of its aircraft and supplies are stolen by the [[GTA Online Protagonist|player]], who was contacted by [[Lester Crest]]. Lester also sends the player to steal documentation and cargo guarded by Merryweather on numerous occasions. Underground crime lord [[Martin Madrazo]] has also hired the player to destroy Merryweather equipment. Ironically, the Online protagonist can call for backup, boat and helicopter pickups or airstrikes.
  +
  +
They also make some appearances during the online [[Heist]]s, most notable during the [[Humane Raid - Insurgents]] [[Heist Setups|heist setup]] mission, where the players must steal two [[Insurgent]]s from a Merryweather test site in [[Davis Quartz]].
  +
  +
==Events of ''GTA V''==
  +

  +
  +
Later, during ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', Merryweather suffers many problematic setbacks at the hands of the game's main protagonists, particularly those of [[Trevor Philips]]. During the game, Merryweather has one of the experimental weapons they were guarding for the U.S. government [[The Merryweather Heist|stolen]]; one of their planes, which was carrying millions of dollars in weaponry, [[Minor Turbulence|hijacked and taken down]]; one of their courier trains, carrying millions of dollars worth of priceless artifacts, [[Derailed|derailed]]; dozens of their men killed at a [[The Wrap Up|massive shootout in the Kortz Center]]; several men killed after an unsuccessful [[Meltdown (GTA V)|house invasion]], dozens of their men killed while unsuccessfully attempting to stop a [[The Big Score (GTA V)|heist at the Union Depository Building]] and (depending on the player's choice) dozens of their men killed in a foundry while [[The Third Way|attempting to kill Franklin Clinton, Michael De Santa and Trevor Phillips]], and one of their chief board members kidnapped, stuffed into a car, and rolled off a cliff.
  +
  +
By the end of the main storyline, Merryweather's reputation is in shambles after so many catastrophic failures, causing several of their regular clients to drop them from their payroll, including the U.S. government. After losing the government contract, Merryweather loses clearance to operate on American soil and is forced to shut down several operations they'd started in the country, costing them millions of dollars.
  +
  +
In ''GTA V'', the player can visit their official website, Merryweathersecurity.com and also buy their stocks in the [[Lcn-exchange.com]] website.
  +
  +
== Divisions ==
  +
There appears to be three divisions of Merryweather Security. Like [[Gruppe Sechs]], the first division provides onsite and property protection with uniformed guards; these guards can be seen patrolling properties in marked cars or walking the premises with a [[Dogs|guard dog]]. Other guards can be seen guarding the [[Humane Labs and Research]] during [[Monkey Business]], and have a different outfit than regular guards. They provide private security to shareholders such as [[Devin Weston]], and they rarely help the [[Los Santos Police Department (HD Universe)|public law enforcement]] in major incidents, one of which was a [[The Big Score (GTA V)|shootout following a bank robbery]]. It also acts as a neighbourhood watch group, as seen in [[Vinewood Hills]].
  +
  +
The second division is a paramilitary force equipped and trained for high-risk operations; this division is comprised primarily of former military servicemen, possibly Special Forces. The U.S. Government employs this division as a courier service and it is implied the [[FIB]] and [[IAA]] use them as hired back up. They own a ship; the [[SS Bulker]] which holds an unknown device. It can be destroyed during the Freighter approach for [[The Merryweather Heist]].
  +
  +
The third division is a [[wp:Courier|courier]] service that was announced<ref>[http://youtu.be/HjC7qfBYCL4?t=1m21s Weazel News]</ref> by Merryweather around the events of the mission, [[Friend Request]]. The service transports art, artifacts, and perishables for museums and collectors. [[Derailed|This is attacked by Michael De Santa and Trevor Phillips and is deliberately derailed]].

"Merryweather Security Consulting? Private army of the New World Order? The folks waging outsourced shadow wars in twenty countries around the globe, and recently cleared to operate on US soil?"
Trevor Philips asking Floyd Hebert about Merryweather.
"Merryweather is a private military and security company with over $10 billion of taxpayer's money in US government contracts to its name."
― Description at LCN.com.

Merryweather Security Consulting is a private military company and security contractor featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. They are one of the main groups of antagonists in GTA V.

Events of GTA OnlineEdit

Sometime before the game's start, Merryweather is cleared by the American government to begin operating on U.S. soil, both in service of the government and of other organizations in the private sector.

It begins experiencing setbacks and problems almost immediately after their clearance. During GTA Online, many of its aircraft and supplies are stolen by the player, who was contacted by Lester Crest. Lester also sends the player to steal documentation and cargo guarded by Merryweather on numerous occasions. Underground crime lord Martin Madrazo has also hired the player to destroy Merryweather equipment. Ironically, the Online protagonist can call for backup, boat and helicopter pickups or airstrikes.

They also make some appearances during the online Heists, most notable during the Humane Raid - Insurgents heist setup mission, where the players must steal two Insurgents from a Merryweather test site in Davis Quartz.

Events of GTA VEdit

Trevor: "Do some research on Merryweather Security Consulting, friend. They'd be on trial for humans rights offenses if the US government didn't protect all its contractors from any kind of suit - military or civilian. They're immune from prosecution, and they behave like they are. Murdering, stealing, high on power, guns, and anabolic steroids. Lucky bastards."
Floyd: "Look, I don't know about that stuff."
Trevor: "You're right. You don't. Merryweather are employed by the richest, greediest scum on the planet to shit on the poorest and the neediest. So we're going to enjoy shitting on them."
—Trevor to Floyd

Later, during Grand Theft Auto V, Merryweather suffers many problematic setbacks at the hands of the game's main protagonists, particularly those of Trevor Philips. During the game, Merryweather has one of the experimental weapons they were guarding for the U.S. government stolen; one of their planes, which was carrying millions of dollars in weaponry, hijacked and taken down; one of their courier trains, carrying millions of dollars worth of priceless artifacts, derailed; dozens of their men killed at a massive shootout in the Kortz Center; several men killed after an unsuccessful house invasion, dozens of their men killed while unsuccessfully attempting to stop a heist at the Union Depository Building and (depending on the player's choice) dozens of their men killed in a foundry while attempting to kill Franklin Clinton, Michael De Santa and Trevor Phillips, and one of their chief board members kidnapped, stuffed into a car, and rolled off a cliff.

By the end of the main storyline, Merryweather's reputation is in shambles after so many catastrophic failures, causing several of their regular clients to drop them from their payroll, including the U.S. government. After losing the government contract, Merryweather loses clearance to operate on American soil and is forced to shut down several operations they'd started in the country, costing them millions of dollars.

In GTA V, the player can visit their official website, Merryweathersecurity.com and also buy their stocks in the Lcn-exchange.com website.

Divisions Edit

There appears to be three divisions of Merryweather Security. Like Gruppe Sechs, the first division provides onsite and property protection with uniformed guards; these guards can be seen patrolling properties in marked cars or walking the premises with a guard dog. Other guards can be seen guarding the Humane Labs and Research during Monkey Business, and have a different outfit than regular guards. They provide private security to shareholders such as Devin Weston, and they rarely help the public law enforcement in major incidents, one of which was a shootout following a bank robbery. It also acts as a neighbourhood watch group, as seen in Vinewood Hills.

The second division is a paramilitary force equipped and trained for high-risk operations; this division is comprised primarily of former military servicemen, possibly Special Forces. The U.S. Government employs this division as a courier service and it is implied the FIB and IAA use them as hired back up. They own a ship; the SS Bulker which holds an unknown device. It can be destroyed during the Freighter approach for The Merryweather Heist.

The third division is a courier service that was announced[1] by Merryweather around the events of the mission, Friend Request. The service transports art, artifacts, and perishables for museums and collectors. This is attacked by Michael De Santa and Trevor Phillips and is deliberately derailed.
