My armor is contempt. My shield is disgust. My sword is hatred. In the Emperor's name, let none survive.

What is keeping you from using the team actions in S1 or S2?

And yet you want to house rule a S3 survivor into it?

I think I would just accept that those are the skills of that character and that they aren't useful in S1 & 2. The character is still perfectly playable, just not as useful as other characters would be. It seems more realistic to expect that some survivors would be useful and some a bit rubbish anyway - we can't all be badasses surely?

Aren't survivors differentiated by their skills, so that, if you're not actually using their skills you're not actually using them? If you just want to use the figure, why not just use the character sheet/skills of another S1/S2 survivor? Or if you really want to use the survivor/figure, then use it as is, and not be able to benefit from some of its skill set, just as we aren't always able to take advantage of other character's skills all the time.

How about you just house rule that whoever chooses Terry gets to choose the starting ability from among the available team cards.

+1 free Melee Action (cfr. Charge!)
or
+1 free Ranged Action (cfr. Shoot!)
or
+1 free Move Action (cfr. Move!)

You can then take that card and tuck under the ID card revealing just the top so that everyone remembers what was chosen.

I think Mr. Doughty's solution is a good one. It also provides a bit of variety.

My suggestion is Gunslinger [The Survivor treats all Ranged weapons as having the dual wield symbol]. Gunslinger is a S1 skill. IIRC, there is no Survivor that starts with the Gunslinger skill, and it is situational. If you can find good ranged weapons quickly and early, it's a great skill. But if you have the game I recently had and get nothing but pans and Plenty of Ammo for the guns we were not drawing from the equipment deck, well, you should have played a Search specialist instead.

The closest thing to Team Action would be "Born Leader".

Why don't you forget about Terry then, and use one of the other 23 Survivors...

There's rather more than 24 different Survivor dashboards available.

Not if you own only s3 core box and s1 extra tiles set, which may be the case here.
Anyway, s3 comes with 12 Survivors, so there is actually some choice with Terry on the side. (more than with 6-period in s1 alone)
