    You can get it by modding offline. But you can get it when ODST comes out.

    Once the new ODST comes out, you'll be able to get the rest of the VidMaster Achievements, once you get those, Recon is available

    Wrong section. Your not submitting a tutorial , your asking a question, the answer to which could be found by a simple google search or by using the search button on the top right of the page.

    If you don't have a devkit don't worry about it.

    Bungie grants recon to whoever they want, trying to earn it, and asking for it are ways to get put on their 'Blacklist' of people never to earn it, I'd just try to get the vidmaster achievements if I were you.

    They will need some new kind of armor now, since everyone can access recon...

    But I have never seen or heard of a FLAMING Head lol

    I didn't mean pro's like MLG, I meant like famous people sorta like the guys who made arby and the chief or wtf it's called. IDK why I said pros musta been high.

    Also bungie said there will be no new armor thats downloadable becuz it would cause some people to have it online and others wouldn't be able to load the armor cuz they didn't have it so they couldn't play with people with new armor. And it's impossible to have an update for new armor becuz it would have to be in the game already. The only way bungie could do something is if they made an armor pack and didn't let anyone go on XBL till the downloaded it.

    Pro's don't get recon. Idk why anyone said that. Its for bungies close friends or if you make a map that all the bungie employees have a great time playing on. Bungie doesn't care if you are a pro...

    Pros are the top MLG 16 teams right? Just list the ones you know, and only famous ones get recon, not all of them.

    Its actually because the armor is hard-coded into the game so you can't update it.

    Oh, and Jackson, it's your lucky day, from Bungie.net:

    Oh snap, think of the 9 million annoying kids wanting Teh Reconz who are going to be spamming the Bungie boards about it. Way to go Bungie for adding even more fuel to the pointless Recon fire. lol

    Damn, thats what I was going to post. But you beat me to it. Whatever. And they did that last year too, so now there will be even more people with recon. But this is probably going to be one of the last chances to get recon before getting all the vidmaster achievements.
