Recon also known as Mark VI MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/R variant is the Holy Grail of Halo. It's what Bungie gives to those who spend far too much time on really stupid forge maps, or do something idiotic and/or lucky
in-game, such as getting killed by a traffic cone, or deflecting a Spartan Laser with a Spike-Grenade or doing something stupid like those screenshots with retarded effects by going into a grenade .
The Recon Armor is whined about far too often for anyone to ever take it seriously, however, some state that having it is enough for people to go to their knees; bending over in some sort of zealous state. It's pretty rare, with only a jillion people having it, and is rather ugly. If you somehow manage to keep your account from being hacked, you will be ridiculed for having it, just because those bastards don't have it.
Helmet Characteristics Edit
Flat out uber kiddies
Shoulder Characteristics Edit
This is the best part of the armour. The shoulders kick so much ass that people make monuments and statues for them. This is the #1 reason why people want Recon. The only complaint that people have is that the little "flap" hides their emblem, of course these are the people that don't have the armor.
Body Characteristics Edit
It looks like the CQB, but without the cool little sharp tingly knife thing. It makes the Spartan look way bigger than he actually is, and like all those offers for V1AGR4 that I keep getting in my e-mail in-box, I learned that bigger is better.
Controversy EditBecause human beings can't live without dissing Bungie for some reason, everyone was right pissed when they heard Recon was Bungie only. They were so butt-hurt that Bungie eventually made it possible for people to get it, but only by wasting precious years of their lives. Though, your account would just be hacked after a few seconds of receiving the armor. People were still butt-hurt because they wanted to get recon for doing nothing, so bungie made it so you can buy recon
The Elites were also deeply troubled by the fact that there is no Recon armour for them. Several protest rallies have since been held by the Elites.
