The lowest rank, often considered as "expendable" in the eyes of higher-ranking officers, such as the Legate and veteran decanii. These legionaries come from the various tribes conquered or integrated by the Legion. They go through training, which, given the nature of the Legion, is no simple task. These legionaries are better trained than the average NCR trooper when it comes to sheer conditioning and hand to hand combat. They are less equipped and trained in the use of firearms than their NCR counterparts. Their level of combat experience tends to vary, but all have yet to distinguish themselves to earn the rank of prime legionary. They are seen throughout the wasteland in scouting and raiding parties. They are typically led by a recruit decanus. All of them are absolute in their devotion to Caesar and the Legion, and will gladly give their life for their cause.
Compared to NCR troopers, recruit legionaries have higher health, but inferior armor. Also, while NCR soldiers primarily use firearms, the recruit legionaries use weapons ranging from simple rifles to crude machetes.
