Agents are the skilled operatives that form the backbone of your operations in Phantom Doctrine. They are needed to conduct operations, perform tasks at the hideout, and they form your fighting force. Additionally, the enemy may deploy some agents against you. They will start missions with full awareness, and are often better than your agents. If you can capture them alive, however, they can be a great asset.

Training

As agents level up, they can receive training, granting them new abilities to be used in-battle and weapon proficiencies.
