There are three sort of agents you can hire.


[edit | edit source]

The standard agent. Most of your staff will be human. They are average agents for all things and a jack of all trades.


[edit | edit source]

Mutants are an interesting twist on human agents. They have more Psi energy, attack, and defense then standard human agents. However they have less health and strength then humans. As a result mutants make good psychers, but fit poorly in other agent roles.


[edit | edit source]

Androids are agents with more health, strength, and accuracy then human agents. In addition to this, they have total immunity to psy attacks. However this comes at a severe cost, Android agents are unable to make psy attacks themselves, nor can they progress. In this sense, they are much like SHIVs in other X-COM games.
