In espionage, a field agent is an agent who works in the field as opposed to one who works at the office or headquarters. A field agent can work alone or in a group but usually has a case officer who is in charge.
Field agents can be undercover, and travel using fake passports that may be under the name of a front organization or shell corporation. Field agents can be armed, but the weapon is always concealed in order to blend in with the masses and not stick out.
