In Recon mode, Bastion is fully mobile, outfitted with a submachine gun that fires steady bursts of bullets at medium range.
Default Key: (PC LMB, PS R2, XB RT)


Bastion is armed with a submachine gun on its right arm. Different with its Sentry configuration, Bastion has the ability to freely move around. The bullet will steadily spread if the firing button is held.

Bastion is not under the effect of Ironclad in this configuration, thus its defense is significantly weaker than Sentry's and Tank's defense.
