there was a clip of cod xp gameplay where tejbz(im pretty sure thats who it was) threw a stun towards the B flag on Arkaden and when he got the hitmarker on the two guys they both showed up on the mini map...
i've heard that it works w/ stuns & flashes and i personally think it will. . .but if not, then you're right, this perk wont be too useful until you unlock the pro version. (i'll still always keep a class w/ recon pro for anti-assassin teams)

But would good would that do against assassin? How often are you really going to shoot someone and not drop them, let alone have them disappear into the ether to where you can't track them?

it will do lots of good, especially if you're running a silencer (which will reduce bullet damage over longer distances) ..meaning, i spot the enemy and tag him, even if i know i wont get the kill becuase of the distance, & now my ENTIRE team can see this person on the mini-map in real time for a good 110 seconds or so (w/o the direction of course, its not like the blackbird)
i do agree that from the get-go assassin will be annoying, but if it becomes way too overused then im glad to know that there is a counter for it in the form of another perk (gotta love counter perks)
people think this perk will be trash but i think the pro version will make it useful, and like i said, i'll definitely be keeping at least one class with recon pro & the recon plane pointstreak)

This perk wouldn't be much of any good if tac grenades don't mark the target, but Im sure they probably will after watching that video. Only problem is, this perk may be under utilized because Scavenger is in the same 1st blue tier. I don't understand that much seeing as how they complement one another so well.

To answer your question,
Q - "Will Recon Stock/Pro work with Flashbangs?"
A - Yes, but not always.
If you haven't noticed yet, flashbangs/stuns/EMPS cause a very slight hit damage. If the Enemy is close enough to the blast, they will show up in real-time on the Mini-Map. But not all enemies show up, and I have yet to find the exact reason as to "Why?".
Dead Silence was built to minimize the effects of Recon, meaning you only show up for 5 seconds, vs. the typical 15 seconds (actuals seconds have yet to be calculated). Besides Dead Silence, I'm thinking that Assassin and Blind Eye Stock/Pro may play a role for having enemies not show up on the radar.
Give Flashbangs a try with Recon equiped, and be sure to have Hardline Pro. Should you hit anyone and they die. You'll get the assist for hitting the individual.
One more additional fact about Recon. Should you mark any enemy or enemies (managed to mark a full team of 6 with a single Flash) . Not just you, but your entire team can see the marked enemies as well.
Recon Stock/Pro is an extremely useful perk for individuals running with Hardline Pro. Add in Sentex, Grenade Launcher Attach., and M320 GLM Secondary. And you have yourself a good Marking Class.M320 GLM

Flashes do but like he said above its inconsistant they have to be pretty close to the flash or stun to be dealt damage.
the best secondary would be the xm25 in ground war and point it at a high volume area and spam them 16 tubes off and combine with hardline for easy streaks, its also the best way to get recon pro and thats where this perk comes into its own as every gun fight you lose they will be painted on radar for team mates to have an easy kill and end his K/S
This is a perk that the more people on your team use it the better it is ive seen a youtube video of a whole team use it with flashes and xm25s and it was like a blackbird was up the whole game. I cant convince my friends that this perk is worthwhile running instead of blind eye or SOH sham really.

Recon works with all explosives and flash/concussion grenades.
As for not showing up, this could be down to lag etc. You screen shows a collision with stun, but the enemies hit boxes might not be their yet. Doesn't happen enough to be gamebreaking.
I recommend using XM25 also while getting 750 paints.
