The Mercenary Pack is a Fallout: New Vegas add-on that gives the player access to a variety of extra items at the start of the game. This pack was only available to those who pre-order Fallout: New Vegas from Best Buy, JB Hi Fi in Australia, Gamestation in the U.K, BT Games in South Africa or from Amazon in Germany prior to the release of the Courier's Stash.
