Act of War Wiki

U.S. Marine capturing a POW.

A prisoner of war (POW) is a person held in custody by an enemy.

In Act of War, POWs can be captured by certain infantry units, usually those welding a firearm. If an interrogation center (Field Intelligence Center, Field Hospital, Field Prison Camp) is built, POWs will be placed in that structure and will generate credits.

Infantry units can be captured if they are severely injured or are noncombatant personnel (pilot and vehicle crew).
