- The pulse skill is useful for scanning an area for nearby hostiles, this effect can also be amplified by equipping the recon pack which extends the pulse range even further.
- Equipping the Tactical Scanner allows the owner and its affected group members to deal increased damage against pulsed enemies; this is especially useful against Elite enemies.
- When exploring the world pre-endgame, Recon Pack is a good choice in order to locate hidden supplies.
