Skills are the five core abilities that the Agent uses and trains throughout Crackdown and Crackdown 2. Skills can be tracked through the Agent's HUD system on the left side of the screen.


In Crackdown, each Skill can be leveled to 4-stars and then maxed to a 5th star, although the 5th star grants the Agent no new abilities.

In Crackdown 2, each Skill can be leveled to 5-ranks and then maxed to a 6th rank. If The Toy Box DLC has been downloaded, then the Agent will unlock the Thruster Ability if all Skills are maxed out.
