Character Skills are the special abilities of characters in Hidden & Dangerous and Hidden & Dangerous 2. Character skills will determine how well a character performs during a mission.

Character skills are initially determined by a characters biography. Certain characters have better advantages in certain skills due to activities they may have performed in the past. Characters who are highly skilled in one field may not necessarily be skilled another field.

A character's skills can be increased by performing certain actions during a mission, similar to character attributes. The various character skills are shooting, stealth, first aid, and lock picking.
