Now, a quick note on the shots shown below. We've focussed on the attacking side because that's where most players tend to struggle. A good Recon Bolt spot can get your team into the site or distract a waiting enemy, forcing them to take care of it or risk being revealed. We've explained where to stand, where to aim, and where the bolt will land, so you know exactly what it covers. Remember, you can see exactly where the bolt lands on your minimap to know if you've done it correctly. With that out of the way, let's get started. Click the links below to jump to each bolt spot, or scroll down to see them all.

Attacking A Site Recon Bolt spot

  • Charge: 1 bar
  • Bounce: None

This first Recon Bolt spot is for A site, but needs your team to have taken the long corridor, sometimes called banana. If you've got that, stand in the corner shown below. It should be easy to wedge yourself against the wooded beam here, so don't worry about messing it up:

Now, look back towards the wall opposite and aim at the highest point on the rocky formation in the distance, as shown in the image below. You don't need to get this shot too precise, which leaves a bit of room to change it around if you find a preferred position. Charge to one bar and fire away!

The Recon Bolt will fly over the wall and land up on the back wall of the site as shown below. If you line this correctly, this recon bolt will reveal anyone standing behind the central box, as well as hiding next to the short or long exits. Be aware that this bolt doesn't reveal anyone hiding in or underneath Heaven (the window on the site). Warn your teammates of this before you attack.

  • Charge: 2 bars
  • Bounce: None

Prefer to fire from a safer spot or want to reveal underneath heaven? Try the following alternative Recon Bolt spot. Start by running into this corner outside the entrance to A from the attack spawn.

Aim up at the second tree branch from the right, as shown below. You can aim anywhere along the top of the end of the branch.. Where you aim will change the landing position on the box, so have a play! It's quite a flexible shot, but we recommend aiming along the right edge. Charge to two bars and let it fly.

Aaand here's where the bolt will land. It will reveal anyone standing under heaven, as well as anyone on the right side of the window. Depending on whether you aim left or right on the branch, it may reveal enemies around the site as well. Bear in mind this will be an easy bolt for someone in heaven or under heaven to shoot. You have plenty of time to move forward after firing, though.

Attacking B Site Recon Bolt spot

  • Charge: 1 bars
  • Bounce: None

One of the simplest recon bolts that'll prove a pain to anyone defending the middle of the map. This bolt is fired from spawn and lands on the front of the central block in B-site. It will reveal anyone hiding behind either side of the doors, as well as players trying to push out down mid. Start by walking to the back of spawn and hopping up on the the wall on the right side of the pillar.

Fire the arrow and it'll land roughly as shown below. This reveals players on either side of the door, but is easily shot by and player waiting there. We recommend asking one of your teammates to peak the mid window right after your arrow lands, as the enemy will be distracted.

Look up and towards the site and you'll see a part of a tree poking out above the wall. Aim at the very tip of the triangle shape this makes, as shown below. Charge one bar and fire away.

And here's where the arrow will land! This Recon Bolt will reveal almost all the key spots on the map, including behind the main boxes and the front corners. It'll also force defenders to turn around and shoot upwards if they want to take it out. So coordinate the shot with a push from your own team.
