"You will crush the German War Machine without effort. For players new to first-person shooters."
— Call of Duty 2 description (other games just say the second sentence)
Recruit is one of the five difficulty settings in the Call of Duty series. It is the easiest of the five difficulties, as the player takes small amounts of damage from most weapons and the AI is generally inaccurate. The difficulty is recommended for players new to the First Person Shooter genre.
