Here's my take:

MH, RAW, is carefully balanced at TL 8 to establish a balance between the Commando and the Warrior in terms of combat effectiveness against foes with Injury Tolerance.

The phrases italicized above are important. If you move to TL 9 or higher, the Commando's weapon suite will become more effective relative to TL 8 (issues with Ultra Tech notwithstanding), as you are discovering. Similarly, if you are using foes without some form of Injury Tolerance as MH uses it, the Warrior's weapon suite will become less effective.

Your task is to rebalance the Warrior and Commando, obviously. You can do this by diminishing the effectiveness of the Commando's weapon suite, or increasing the effectiveness of the Warrior's weapon suite. My off-the-cuff recommendations:

TL 9 weapons for the Warrior - increases the damage of the Warrior's weapons. I don't recall if the increase in Ultra Tech RAW is proportional to the increase in the Commando's weapon's damage, but you can house rule that it is.

Adjust the effects of Injury Tolerance - either to increase the damage taken from the Warrior's weapons or decrease the damage taken from the Commando's weapons. This could also be achieved by suitably humanoid foes wearing TL 9 body armor, in addition to their native Injury Tolerance. However, I do not recall how that would or would not stack by RAW.

If you're giving the commando high-tech weapons then I recommend helping the warrior by allowing vibroblades one TL earlier. You can compensate by making them "experimental" -- not just double cost, but also with a fraction of the battery life. A superfine vibroblade (SV) weapon does +1d+2(5) cutting and +2(2) impaling damage. A ST 17 warrior swinging a SV broadsword does 4d+10(5) cutting damage per swing. Against living creatures, the commando still has an edge, but they become more evenly matched against the unliving and the warrior has a huge edge against homogenous foes.

Take the mummy as an example: DR 6, HP 25, Homogenous. Assuming the commando is using a storm rifle (9d pi+, RoF 3), each bullet does 32 basic damage, 26 penetrating damage, 8 injury. The warrior's swings each do 24 basic damage, 23 penetrating damage, 34 injury -- better than four bullets. Extra effort (Mighty Blows) bumps that to 28 basic, 27 penetrating, 40 injury.

That's really more of a band-aid, though. Without a doubt, the better guns get, the weaker melee weapons are. That's why if I were to do an ultra-tech port of MH, I would also revamp the monsters to make them less vulnerable to guns. The simplest fix is to add Injury Tolerance (Damage Reduction 3, Limited to Guns) to each monster at TL9 -- I'd probably go /4 or /5 at TL10. It's not even that strange a fix; a significant portion of myth is that these monsters are only vulnerable to certain thing. So it's reasonable to assume that the bullets which slaughter humans so well are strangely ineffective against angels, demons, vampires, etc.

Okay, reading comprehension failure.

But my question still stands, I just phrased it badly. Why are you choosing a non-standard setting for your MH campaign? I see that there's an article associated with it, and I'm not familiar with it, but I don't need you to justify it to me in any case. You seem to want a TL 9 MH campaign that features both guys with (TL 9) guns and guys with (TL 3) swords. Why? I note with a brief perusal of the article that this is meant to be Black Ops redux, and that melee-focused characters don't really seem to be in there. So why do you want a melee character in there?

This is not a rhetorical question meant to make you realize the errors of your way. But rather, if you articulate this to yourself, you might see what you're trying to get at, and that might give you your solution. If it's because it "looks cool," then you need cinematic solutions. If it's to create tactical diversity, new strategic solution to defeating bad guy, then adjust the monsters to allow that character to take advantage of his unique capabilities. When you can frame the problem well, the solution usually presents itself.

Visualization might be useful for the Sage. Not a combat ability but lets him get a bonus on most non melee things that he thinks about ahead of time.

I've been wanting to address the question of "what do I do with the sage if magic doesn't exist?" for a while now.

The quick answer is: Strip away his Magery, Thaumatology, and Path skills. That saves 60 points right there. Now spend those on whatever cool abilities you do want to use in your game -- whether that means Mysticism, psionics-rebranded-as-magic-spells, or just extra ST and DX so he can be a backup warrior.

I've also got a longer answer, with far more detail, but I'll have to ask you to wait a little while for that one. Just keep an eye on Warehouse 23 in the meantime.

HE TEASES US!

(looking forward to what comes.)

For the Sage, besides all the Hidden Knowledge at usable levels, I would think someone who can Heal would be useful.

Todate, my MH games have focused on 1930's. I can post a couple of the melee guys. They are closer to 400 points, so you can juice them for TL9.

They are one experiment and two warriors.

Their backgrounds have to be tweaked for the setting, and their gear needs to be changed out.

Kewul's Khukuri can be bumped to Very Fine/Balanced, and maybe add a armor divisor for early hyper dense or vibro.

Dagur's magic sword could be replaced with a Very Fine/Vibro too.

Dido for Tojo's.

Kewul Signh Zoon, Nepali formerly in 5th Royal Gurkha Rifles (Frontier Force)
Team Role: Scout – Runner [EXPERIMENT]
Appears as a small dark haired Nepali man. He was the result of a secret temple’s human breading program to produce mystic warriors. Enemies of the temple attacked and burnt it to the ground. Young Kewul was the sole survivor. The orphaned Kewul was raised by a former Gurkha soldier. He joined the Gurkhas and served under Major Blackwell, rising to the Rank of Havildar (Sergeant). He first encountered supernatural creatures in Bagdad, fighting alongside Colonel (then Major) Blackwell and Mehmet Golugolu.

Playing Kewul:
You are always happy and smiling, even when you are killing monsters. The grimmer it gets, the bigger your smile. You are unfazed by danger. You still call Professor Blackwell “Colonel” and salute him, from your days serving as his batman/ runner/driver back in the regiment. You are fanatical about your mission to slay evil monsters. You are loyal to Greystone and to your teammates.

View of Others:
Kewul Sigmh Zoon – You.
Professor Arthur Blackwell – Colonel Blackwell is your former British commander from the Frontier Force, and a good leader. You trust his leadership when things get dangerous.
Lady Genovefa Feidlimid – Lady Feidlimid is a pleasant young Irish woman. The magic is strong in her.
Father Antonio Dell’Edera – The Father is very concerned with his faith, and it gives him his special powers. But you think he takes himself too seriously.
Lamar Taylor – Sergeant Taylor is a good soldier and comrade. He is a deadly shot with his automatic rifle.
Don Pedro Vasquez – Don Vasquez has the taint of the supernatural on him from his birth as a Dampire. But he is a good monster hunter.
Hajji Ashok Pasupathie – Hajji Pasupathie has mystic healing powers, that are very valuable to the group. Although from India, he has travelled to Nepal.
Pascal De Beauregard – Monsieur De Beauregard, a Frenchman, helps you scout for the group. But he is more concerned with acquiring wealth.
Professor Wolfgang Heinrick – Professor Heinrick from Germany does his own type of magic with machines. He can be a big help with that flamethrower of his.
Dagur –Ser Dagur from Iceland is a knight, like from the old stories. He is the biggest and strongest man you know. That strength, and his skill with his Greatsword are very helpful in a monster hunting team.
Tojo Kawasaki – Tojo San is a Samurai. His fighting style is different than Dagur’s, but he is similarly skilled.
Mehmet Golugolu – Mehmet Golugolu from Turkey is another gunman on the team. .

He is a large muscular Japanese man. He trained for much of his life with a secret order of Monster fighting Samurai, who guard the Emperor. Blackwell’s team helped stop a zombie outbreak in Japan. In appreciation, the Emperor has put Kawasaki San in Greystone’s service for the next five years. Kawasaki San has been killing monsters all around the world with the team ever since.
