Lead, and if necessary, use words.

the most effective way to deploy them is keep them stalking the other team and have them observing and reporting there every movement. and when the time comes use them to harass the other team by taking a few of there guys out at a time pulling back and doing it again. hope that helps.

Also know that recon or harassment units must understand what it means to be recon. When harassing an enemy it is not the same as engaging. Engaging is when you bring your markers up to bear for kills while pushing momentum. Harassing is the constant shifting of momentum at various points to make the enemy react and finding a weak point. The goal is not to necessary knock out the enemy but to distract him so yelling, screaming and crap talking is permitted.
Make sure that you have good coordination with the recon unit or you could be feeding kills to the enemy.
At times it may be best that the CO command the recon so he or she would be able to directly assess the "intel" from recon.
