The Recluse is the culmination of 80 years of development on grenades and grenade launchers. Equipped with both a booster and sustainer engine the Recluse can maneuver during its entire flight, and the guidance system is accurate up to 20 cm even at the maximum range. Fired mainly from the chest launchers on the Blowsperior Cyclone, the Recluse could be found anywhere with the REF or its allied forces.
Although reliable, simple to use, and accurate, the Recluse remains a small projectile with a small warhead. Although usually capable of taking out an Iigaa, it is less capable against the larger Gurab, and almost useless against the Gamo and Gosu. Recent trends therefore favor larger missiles, and the Recluse is bound to be retired in the near future.
