Recon teams are the eyes and ears of the Gamma team. They are usually the first members to encounter pockets of survivors and initiate first contact. As such, many recon team members are skilled in various “soft” sciences (psychology, philosophy, sociology), and many are artists, musicians, and so on. The recon team color is green.
Unofficially, Recon team members will be the scouts, traders, and maybe even the “obtainers” of things in need. They quite often specialize in surveillance (both electronic and physical), sniping, and security measures (both setting up and bypassing). Many Recon members are also skilled “face” men, filling a role that approximates the amalgamation of a used car salesman, a game show host, and a scientific expert.
