The ATLAS reconstruction algorithm, in Run-II, has been improved and extended compared to the one used in Run-I. In this presentation, we will discuss the precise measurement of the muon reconstruction efficiency measured in pp collisions at sqrt(s)= 13 TeV in 2015 and 2016 using samples of J/ψ→μμ and Z→μμ decays. The reconstruction efficiency, transverse momentum resolution and momentum scales measurements in the various regions of the detector and for muon momenta between 6 and hundreds of GeV are presented.
