How to Unlock Secret Recon Class in Aliens Fireteam Elite

To unlock the Aliens Fireteam Elite secret Recon class, you just need to complete all the campaign missions found in the game. It really is as straightforward as that. There are four campaigns in the game – Priority One, Giants In The Earth, The Gift Of Fire and The Only Way To Be Sure – and each of them has about three levels to beat. Once you finish them all, you’ll get the Aliens Fireteam Elite Recon class. The best part about it is that the difficulty setting doesn’t play into it at all – you can unlock the Recon marine by playing through all the missions on Casual difficulty.

Now, with all that said, what does the Recon class actually offer? Well, it has two active abilities. The first one is PUPS, which releases a small, round drone that goes around marking nearby enemies and lowering their damage by 20%. This is invaluable on higher difficulty levels, when the game doesn’t give you enemy outlines. The second secret Recon class ability in Aliens Fireteam Elite is the Support Drone. You place it on the ground and it replenishes the ammo of nearby allies, increases Accuracy and Stability by 20%, and replenishes a small amount of Hit Points for every kill.

The one passive ability of the Recon class is called Focus. For every two headshots you score within 10 seconds, you get one stack of Focus, which gives you +10% to Accuracy and Stability. You can stack the bonus up to three times. In other words, Recon is a support class, yes, but it can also dish out its share of punishment.
