This recon morph is designed to be a fast, lightweight runner, climber, and ﬂyer. The opteryx looks like a one-meter-tall winged, synthetic dinosaur and adopts an almost horizontal body posture when running, its tail held out for balance. Its wings are fully functional arms equipped with claws. This morph is a favorite for gatecrashers and neo-avians in the dinosaur identity subculture. It comes equipped with cartography package software.

Nova Vida: Our team’s scout swears by these things, says nothing beats them for feeling like you’re just eating up ground on a scouting op. Having seen her in action, I can’t help but agree. The opteryx just ﬂows between running, ﬂying, gliding, and jumping without effort.
Eludere: A crew I know that makes quick runs into the TQZ for small packages uses these too. They like the size and ability to avoid detection by staying under radar range and dipping into crevices and caves to avoid satellite coverage.
