Mainframe Devices

A mainframe device is any device with firewalls which can be hacked. Hacking a mainframe device typically disables it, allows it to be used by the agency in some way, or otherwise gives some advantage.

Mainframe devices also include drones and some human guards, which are not listed below. Some devices are specific to particular missions or side-missions.
