For 2 points and a gear slot this upgrade adds the Scout 1 keyword to a unit or increases a units Scout X value by 1 to a maximum of 3, allowing them to make a move when they are deployed with a speed equal to their Scout X value.
At 2 points Recon Intel is very affordable and the benefits are almost always useful. At worst you will not use it and are only out 2 points, at best it will allow you to start your game in better cover or with range to an objective or attack.
Recon Intel is very beneficial to units that rely on their mobility or units that want to be in and around cover to increase their survivability. This upgrade is almost essential on melee units like Luke, but if you have spare points and gear slots this upgrade is good on almost every unit. It is best on units that already have Scout X to increase their already existing benefit.
