Attention Commanders, Spotting nearby enemy targets just got easier. Introducing the Recon Satellite - a faster way to find targets on the World Map.
  — KIXEYE Bert McGirt 


The Recon Satellite is User Interface Control feature found on the World Map

It's intent is to aid the Player in locating possible attackable targets by cycling through one of five categories :

The Recon Satellite cycles through possible targets one at a time starting with the one that is found closest to the Players own Base and continuing outwards with the maximum number of targets being 50 per Category. 

The Recon Satellite Menu is found on the World Map, located directly above the Chat Window.

Head to the World Map to take advantage of your new target finding powers. No one is safe from your wrath with the Recon Satellite at your disposal!

How to UseEdit

  1. Slide Open the Recon Satellite Menu by clicking on the "RECON SATELLITE" Bar ( ^ ) arrow located above the Chat Bax.
  2. Select a Category to cycle through from Player Base's, Resource Deposits or Rogue Faction Bases within striking distance from your base.
  3. Each click of the Category moves your view to the next furthest away target.
  4. Once a suitable target is found, call in your platoons and wreak havoc.
  5. Slide Closed the Recon Satellite Menu by clicking on the "RECON SATELLITE" Bar ( v ) arrow.

Additional FactsEdit

  • As an added bonus - Platoon Speed on the World Map has been significantly increased permanently with the release of the Recon Satellite!
  • Fixed an issue with the Recon Satellite incorrectly targeting damage protected bases.
