Player Notes Edit

Mechanics
  • The Recon Visor tags enemies in a similar manner to the marker highlighting the last 3 enemies in a wave wherever they are. If it is active in that instance, the skill's bonuses only work if the unit is in range, not if the enemy is still on the far side of the map.
  • Recon Visor's range modifiers are additive (+40% Rank 2 Range and +50% Rank 5 Augmented Range). From 25 meters base, unlocking both yields a maximum of 48 meters (47.5 meters rounded up), or good enough for sniper rifles.
  • The skill only has one penetration damage modifier (+25% Rank 3 Damage). From a base of 60% the maximum is 85%.
  • Recharge speed and duration max out at 8 seconds and 18 seconds respectively, from 12 seconds base value for both.
Strategies
  • Recon Visor requires projectile weapon loadouts for maximal synergy and shooting targets even behind (reasonably thin) walls. Energy gun users can still take advantage of the skill's x-ray display to learn where their targets are going and to promptly anticipate and shoot them there.
    • Weapons that fire bouncing projectiles like the Scorpion and the M-37 Falcon can't use Receiver Mods, and by extension also don't benefit from the skill's penetration damage buff.
  • Rank 6 Extend Duration is useful when there are clumps of low-health easily-killable enemies in one place. That one second extension per kill, however, may not be enough if the units are quickly roaming around.
  • Rank 6 Shatter Armor earns its keep against Hydras, Fiends, and unshielded Destroyers.
