Imperial Agent


imperial-agentThe Imperial Agent is the spy of the Empire. His job is to go behind enemy lines and destroy something that is pivotal to the Republic and then get out before anyone knows what has happened. A single Imperial agent can change the course of a battle more than an entire legion of soldiers or army of Sith Warriors. Focusing heavily on recon and weapons with long range and accuracy, the agent is known for their life of solitude. Unlike the Sith who are all about more power and force insight, the Imperial Agent is the one who really has the Empire’s citizens in mind; he fights for them.

He comes with very durable heavy armor that allows quick motions. While the agent specializes in killing from afar, he is more than prepared to get in close and kill at this range. Sometimes they work alone; however, sometimes they are a part of a strike team of other agents. The Empire relies heavily on them for their cunning and sneaking. In the end, the fate of the Empire might rest on the information provided by the agent over any other class. However, maybe the agent will mess things up. You decide.

State-of-the-art attire with high-grade armor mesh provides protection and ease-of-movement. Many of the Agent’s outfits are augmented with advanced communications technology and attachments to facilitate interfacing with varied computer networks and security systems.

Progression Trailer

The following progression trailer for the Imperial Agent class showcases several key abilities and armors, as well as displays the use of Cover system.

Combat Tactics

Relying on range, surprise, and an arsenal of state-of-the-art gadgets and weaponry, the Imperial Agent enters battle with a confident strategy. Though striking from a distance or from the shadows plays to the Agent’s strengths, a well-equipped operative is more than capable of evading his enemies when necessary or moving in close to quietly slide a blade between an opponent’s ribs. Whether on a solo mission or working in conjunction with a strike team, this operative keeps a finger on the right button for almost any situation.



The Operative has less cover dependent gameplay option if skilled accordingly. Operatives are best in mid and close range combat, using their stealth field generator to approach the enemy unseen before delivering heavy burst damage with their energy blade.

  • Blaster Rifle / Energy Blade
  • Stealth
  • Burst Ranged damage
  • Healing

Operative Skill Trees

The two Operative skill trees are Concealment and Medic. The shared Operative/Sniper skill tree is Lethality.

  • Concealment – Upgrades stealth and close-ranged attacks, allowing the Agent to strike without detection.
  • Medic – Advances the Agent’s keeping both his allies alive and effective.
  • Lethality – Leverages the toxic power of poisons to debilitate enemies over the course of long fights.
