When it comes to surviving against the horde of Xenomorphs in Aliens: Fireteam Elite, you have to make sure your team is organized and effective. To do this, you are going to want to make sure that each player knows their roles, from healing with Doc to blowing stuff up with Demolisher, knowing all that is at your disposal is important. That is why it is important to know that there is a class that you don’t get from the start, the Recon Class. To truly be the best you can be when it comes to being a Marine, you will need to know how to add the Recon Class to your arsenal. This guide will show you how to unlock the Recon Class in Aliens: Fireteam Elite.
How to Unlock the Recon Class in Aliens: Fireteam Elite
At the start of the game, you will have access to four different classes: Demolisher, Gunner, Doc, and Technician. The fifth and final class is Recon, which will require you to complete a challenge to get it. To unlock this fifth class, you will need to complete the Aliens: Fireteam Elite campaign on any difficulty. The game’s campaign contains a total of 12 missions across four chapters. It will take around six hours to clear the campaign for the first time, so make sure your team uses the classes at your disposal and battle your way through these alien invested levels. Once you get through the campaign, you will be able to use the Recon Class in any mission you replay as well as the game’s Horde mode.
The Recon class focuses on using its rifle and close-quarter weaponry while relaying information to the rest of the team. The Recon can release PUPS, a drone that will mark enemies as well as lower the damage of marked opponents by 20%. Support drones will replenish ammo and health to nearby teammates while also boosting their accuracy by 20%. The class’s passive ability increases their accuracy after scoring two headshots within 10 seconds with this ability able to stack up to three times. This class is a great help to any fireteam as it both aids in combat and keeping the team alive. A much-needed support that can turn your team from the hunted to the hunters.
Aliens: Fireteam Elite is available now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
