Ol'Sal will get things moving again.
Sometimes I think I'd have an easier time surviving Cataclysm IRL than in game.

I suppose you'll be the groups mutant for now! Though I would ask you to tone down his strength a little bit, as Cyborgs/Androids are supposed to be minibosses, similar in strength to mutants, so him being able to so easily cleave the head off one would be kind of defeating the point of them :)

Other than that, there are no zombies (per se) in this scenario, but it all sounds pretty good other than that.

Tbh he really doesn't possess the kind of strength or over powered persona your thinking of

His Super Human Reflexes More Tie in to that fact if he sees a gun aimed at him he can pin point the exact location the bullet will travel to via the barrels trajectory

This is more so for survivability what he lacks in tactical training he makes up for in fulfilling orders

And the whole removeing the head from I cyborg thing is more of a belief from the point of the reader more than fact I mean the axe can certainly do damage but it most assuredly will not kill a cyborg in one hit

Matthias  (I'm not trying to lead the group to unstoppable glory I'm only trying to find my sister.

Given that being shot a few times, blown up hard enough to knock him through a building, having a literal nuke explode while attached to him, and getting into a fist fight with a giant, semi-invincible weather controlling wolf did not do anything beyond mildly inconvenience the cyborg we encountered, I'd have to agree that an axe most assuredly should not do anything to them.

Androids are built to be the world's perfect super soldiers in this universe, in competition with the altered humans that your character would be part of, they're built from the strongest metals, most advanced tech, and near indistinguishable from human AIs.
They come with everything from laser eyes, to jetpacks, to forcefields. And of course, at first, these guys will look completely human.

So to put it bluntly, they're few, far between, and tough as nails. A concentrated burst of machine gun fire could damage one heavily, but small arms and incendiary attacks will do very little, and melee is almost entirely out of the question, short of a sledgehammer, and even that would take a long time to do any significant damage. I have purposely made the one seen so far be very clumsy, so as not to be unfair to the players :)

But in future, expect to have to outsmart any androids you encounter, cyborgs are a little easier, due to the fleshy human bits still left, but they are going to be treated as the lowest tier of miniboss

So, for a basic scale of power

Cyborgs/Lesser Mutants (We'll get into these later on)
Mutants (Howlers are a good example)
Advanced Mutants (Again, we'll get into these later, but expect a tough fight with these bastards)
Androids (Like the Bandit Leader, but not all of them will be so clumsy)
Remnants (These will be very, very rare, and often not hostile, The Judge is a notable example)
