For those of you jumping into Cold Iron Studios’ latest co-op shooter Aliens: Fireteam Elite, you’ll likely be busy taking down waves upon waves of xenomorphs in a bid to level up your character, weapons and classes. While there are four classes to choose from initially, did you know that there’s a secret unlockable fifth class? In this guide, we’ll run through how to unlock the secret Recon class in Aliens: Fireteam Elite. Let’s get into it!
Unlocking the Secret Recon Class in Aliens Fireteam Elite
The good news is that unlocking the secret Recon class is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is complete all four campaigns of the game. This means you’ll need to beat all three levels of Priority One, Giants In The Earth, The Gift Of Fire and The Only Way To Be Sure. Thankfully, the difficulty setting doesn’t affect unlocking the Recon class. In other words, even if you beat all the campaigns on Casual, you’ll still nab the secret Recon class at the end.
Specifically, the Recon class boasts the Pups ability that reveal nearby enemies to your entire team, and lowers their damage by 20%. Meanwhile, the Support Drone ability replenishes nearby allies’ ammo and increases their weapon accuracy and stability by 20%, while also granting a small amount of hit points whenever a target is killed. Next, the Focus ability rewards players who get 2 headshots in ten seconds with an accuracy and stability buff of 10% which can be stacked up to 3 times.
Overall, the Recon class has some pretty unique abilities that’ll come in super handy while you’re going toe-to-toe with the hordes of xenomorphs that are waiting to see you pushing up the daisies.
