Modern Warfare 3 Recon Perk Guide
In this Modern Warfare 3 Recon Guide, we will be discussing the Recon
perk, going over what it does and how to unlock it and the pro version. We will also be discussing the best
strategies to use with this Perk.
Modern Warfare 3 Recon Perk Function
The Recon perk marks enemies on the radar for your entire team that have been hit by one of your explosives. The
pro version of the perk does the same thing but marks anyone hit with a bullet.
The end result is that once you mark a player, if you do not take them out then someone on your team should be
able to very quickly. It is a lot easier to take out players once they have been painted to the mini-map.
This effect lasts for 12 seconds in both cases. The only perk that effects this is Dead Silence Pro, which cuts
it down to six seconds. Assassin does not effect Recon.
Modern Warfare 3 Recon Perk - How to Unlock
Recon is one of your starting perks as soon as you unlock your custom classes. To unlock the pro version, you
have to mark 120 enemies with your explosives.
Note that flash bang and EMP grenades have a big range and will mark players. You can also use a grenade
launcher or rocket launcher as a secondary weapon slot to get more explosives to mark enemies with.
Modern Warfare 3 Recon Perk - Best Uses
The Recon perk is an interesting one and definitely has some uses. The main problem with this perk is that you
have to choose between it, Scavenger, and Sleight of Hand. Any fully-automatic SMG or Assault Rifle should opt for
Scavenger or Sleight of Hand depending on skill level, so that rules Recon out.
I think the best weapon to use the Recon perk with is a Light Machine Gun. LMG users get lots of inaccurate
bullets which are very good at painting people to the mini-map. Additionally, the big ammo clips and generous
amount of starting ammo with the LMG makes Sleight of Hand and Scavenger less appealing.
If you do use this perk, the best way to use it is before entering a building you think people might be in. Toss
in one of your grenades or flashbangs and you will get to see where the person (or number of players) are
positioned, making an approach into a key building much easier.
Modern Warfare 3 Recon Conclusion
The Recon perk marks players on the mini-map that have been hit with your explosives, and the pro version adds
this effect to your bullets. It can be very helpful in team games, especially in larger games when you have a lot
of players on your team. The only downside to this perk is that it means you have to give up Sleight of Hand or
Scavenger to get it.
