All-purpose Protection: Armor -10%

Speed +15%

Lightweight, bullet resistant and compact in design, the Recon Vest offers soldiers superior speed, while maintaining protection on par with the Light Vest.
  — The Arsenal 

The Recon Vest was an NX Vest that was added in the 12-23-09 Patch.

As of the Combat Arms Reboot update, it can only be obtained through a Ghost Hi-Sec Case.


The Recon Vest is an improved version of the Light Vest, with a speed increase of 15%. It also decreases armor protection by 10%, which is the same amount as the Light Vest.
