Each agent has a primary weapon that he or she is especially adept at using and a secondary weapon that can be selected. Pick a secondary weapon and boiler to balance your agent's battlefield versatility.

For each battle, agents will start at set locations. As you move around the environment, look for objects that hide you from alien sight lines and for rewards like medals and gears. Scout for routes that will keep your team safe and meet your mission objectives. The best path may not be the most obvious path.
