Spies can expose the enemy units in the sector. But broadcasts are short, because the Jerries track them down.

Spy is a revealing ruse in R.U.S.E..


A spy reveals all unidentified enemy units in a sector. However, If the enemy also using Radio Silence, a Recon unit is needed to be deployed to identify enemy units within its Line-of-Sight (LOS). This ruse does not reveal the enemy's destination, nor does it reveal units within forests or swamps. It merely spots units that have been detected but not identified - you will still need to use recon to detect hidden units.

Strategies and tactics

  • The spy ruse can be used to allow fighters and fighter-bombers to target distant units.
