Plucking the Feathers off a Bird
Designed to have its presence felt without ever being seen on the battlefield, the Omnidyne OD-R02 “Nighthawk” specializes in staying far behind the front lines to pick off enemies with its powerful rifle and evasive systems.
The Nighthawk is not designed to engage in close-quarters combat, and is instead optimized for combat at range.
Specialty (Passive) - Ambush - When the Nighthawk is not in enemy SIN, it deals extra damage. The effect can only occur once every 30 seconds.
Execute Shot - A specialized round for the Nighthawk’s sniper rifle, the Execute Shot is capable of taking out enemy combatants without incapacitation.
Remote Explosive - An explosive which sticks to any surface, including enemies. This charge is then detonated at the Recon’s discretion.
Smoke Screen - The Recon can deploy a smoke grenade to conceal its position, while hiding allies within the cloud from enemy SIN.
Eruption Rounds (HKM) - The Bolt Action Sniper Rifle can also be loaded with special Eruption Rounds, which explode either upon impact or when they come within proximity of an enemy.
The Nighthawk’s Bolt Action Sniper Rifle has a very slow rate of fire, but its impact is devastating. A headshot from the Nighthawk’s rifle will put down anything in its way. The addition of a scope increases its effective range.
