Recon allows the player (but not their team members) to see the opposing team on the GamePad map while standing on their team's Spawn Point. This ability is restricted to clothing as a main ability.

Use

This can be useful for using Inkstrikes to splat opponents while in the safety of the Spawn Point, or for coordinating informed attacks with the team. Recon's effect continues for 3.5 seconds after leaving the Spawn Point, and shows opponents' weapons on the GamePad map.

Version history

2.6.0

  • Duration of effect after leaving Spawn Point increased to 3.5 seconds.
  • Recon will now also display each opponent’s equipped weapon on the Gamepad Map.


Mutual exclusivity

Since this ability is found as the main ability only on clothing, other abilities found only on clothing are mutually exclusive with it; in other words players cannot have them together. These abilities are Cold Blooded, Haunt, and Ninja Squid. In addition, since wearing the Splatfest Tee is mandatory during a Splatfest, these abilities cannot be used for the duration of those events.
