The Recon Leader is a prominent Sangheili.
Recon Leaders will occasionally appear in certain Warzone Firefight simulations as a standard boss. Two will always spawn with a Legendary-tiered Wraith Officer. All Recon Leaders drive Ultra Ghosts in Temple Ghost colors. If for some reason their Ghost flips over, it will explode and eject the Recon Leader out; the Recon Leader will then fight on foot using a Storm Rifle and Plasma Grenades.
- The only way to use the Plasma Launcher in Halo 5: Guardians before it was removed was when one killed an Unggoy wielding this weapon in a wave where the Wraith Officer and both Recon Leaders spawned on Round 3 of a Warzone Firefight game.
