The expansion to Halo 3, Recon, now has a new name that isn't "Recon". Instead, the expansion will officially be called Halo 3: ODST. The "ODST" stands for Orbital Drop Shock Trooper, the special forces branch that is called in for smaller tasks not fit for Master Chief.

Quote:
This new title is a more straightforward account of the experience that awaits and the role you will assume as you explore the streets of New Mombasa. But don't worry, you can still has Recon. (the armor that is, it's still tied to the Vidmaster achievements and will be accessible via the final retail release next Fall).

"ODST" (literally pronounced "Oh-Dee-Ess-Tee" and not "ohdst") is the acronym for "Orbital Drop Shock Trooper." This special forces branch of the UNSC military force is called into action for highly specialized, small scale operations. ODST units were deployed during portions of the Halo 2 and Halo 3 campaign and have also been featured in some of the Halo novels. To learn more about this elite military operation, check out this recent interview with Bungie's Halo fiction guru, Robt McLees.

Yeah recon sounded much better but ODST dosnt sound as good, especially when your talking flat out to friends about it.
