For missions in which the "Recon" keyword applies, does this allow you to select any location in the deck or do you pick one at random?

Based on the turn #1 description from the sample play through in the manual, I'm guessing you get to pick the location.

Quote:
Due to the Covert card's Recon notation, I get to look
through the deck for a Location card. I select the Wetlands
Location card, add it to Giacomelli’s hand, and then shuffle
the Action deck.


The "I select" leads me to believe it's your choice.

Furthermore, the glossary term never indicates that it should be random.

Quote:
Recon (Card Type) - The notation will specify a type of
card in the Action Card Deck. Look through the deck, find
the specified type of card, freely add it to one Player
Soldier’s hand, and then shuffle the Action Card Deck.

Thanks. That's how I played it. I played my first game today and selected the Village card (Jungle deck) but in retrospect that was a pretty poor choice due to its high reinforcements value. Would you recommend a card to pick for each deck?

I've only played in the jungle so far. And I haven't examined the location cards in enough detail to make that call. So far my inclination is to opt for cards with low entry costs that doesn't have reinforcements.

I generally try to play Location cards with no reinforcement costs as a rule. However, the Escape objectives nullify that player advantage. When I work up the nerve to tackle it, I'll let you know
