Bulk roughly measures the weight and unwieldiness of an item in Recon, with a rough equivalency of 1 bulk point to 1 pound. A soldier with a high bulk score will move slower and generate more noise, generally creating issues for a stealth mission. Extra bulk is generated by all weapons and equipment, though some more than others (i.e. an M3 vs. an M60). To minimize bulk, first plan what you will need on your mission (a radio, for example), calculate roughly the kind of firepower you need to bring (higher bulk weapons tend to have more stopping power), and grab the lowest bulk items that satisfy your conditions. A tip for squads that stick together is to have similar bulk values among all soldiers (your radioman can pack a light gun, for example), so all your men move at roughly the same speed and stick together well.
