1st Force Reconnaissance

The last thing you will never see

Path of a Online Marine

The path to become a Online Marine is not a difficult one but it is lengthy. Recruits must go through a process longer than most realism teams to become a full-fledged member of the 1st FR, however it is self-rewarding, and has been successful in eliminating those who are not truly dedicated to becoming a productive member. Those recruits who complete the process become full members of possibly the greatest Marine Milsim team in existence, and can be sure their comrades next to them are as dedicated as they are. 


 The first step for any prospective recruit is to check our requirements and make sure you meet them. If you have other questions, however, such as those regarding concerns about training times or current available jobs, please be sure to get in contact with a recruiter either on Xbox Live. A list of recruiters can be found here.

If you need help with the registering on are website , see a recruiter. Once your application has been submitted please remember to be patient. Our staff is very vigilant, but this is still a hobby for all of us and real life always come first. Most applications are approved within 24-48 hours make sure that a recruiter has filled out an Recruit Application before you register on the website
