As a Recon in Global Agenda, you have the ability to fight when you want to fight. You can initiate bloody melees. You can initiate long-distance sniper warfare. You can cause attackers or defenders to get off capture points with your satchel charges. No one will know you are coming, and if you do it right, no one will know you are leaving either. For the Recon class, the best weapon they have is the fear a good one puts in the enemy.
