While Recon Troopers may carry rifles and grenades, those are not their true weapons. Their real weapons are eyeballs and radios, for they are the eyes and ears of their commanding officers. It is with the information provided by his reconnaissance units that a commander can shape the battlefield - as simply knowing where the enemy is and what he is doing is a powerful asset to any military commander. As the old adage goes, 'Knowing is half the battle'.
