Motto: "I can use any environment to outmaneuver and confuse the enemy."
RECONDO was an instructor at the Jungle Warfare Training Center where all the bad-to-the-bone soldiers were taught their trade. He learned his craft the hard way, waist deep in leech-infested water and hacking his way through dense triple canopy forest while dodging bullets and grenades. His well honed survival skills made him a natural choice for the G.I. JOE team, where he always volunteers for the hottest missions - both in temperature and intensity.
As with most survival experts who ultimately learn to count on their own abilities and resourcefulness, RECONDO spends months in the bush with only his weapon for company. This has led him to become a crack shot at any distance. Now, as the Designated Marksman for the TIGER FORCE special operations unit, he has the ability to engage targets at greater ranges than the other members of the squad. He's an indispensable soldier in the field and the one the enemy doesn't know about until it's too late!
No variations of Recondo (v8) are known to exist.
