The Commando is the eyes of your squad, providing vital information to your teammates while cutting down hordes of ZEDs.

General Information

The Commando has the unique ability to make Stalkers visible to their teammates. Commandos also display the health bars above injured ZEDs, allowing them to prioritize the targets and know when a particularly dangerous ZED is on the ropes. Both these abilities have a limited range, but it increases with each level the Commando gains.

In addition to providing valuable information to their team, Commandos are the masters of assault rifles, allowing them to deal with most weaker ZEDs handily.

Commando skill choices let them focus on either being a man-of-war for the team through improved weapon handling, better damage and increased health and armor or by representing a bulletstorm-emitting machine gunner-esque type of player that delivers a ton of stopping power thanks to extended magazines and better stumbling capabilities.

Perk Notes

  • Damage modification (passive + skills): Passive bonus and Machine Gunner skill affecting on-perk weapons (including Knife) or on-perk damage types. Fallback skill affecting damage of 9mm Pistol(s) and all knives. Hollow Points skill affecting on-perk weapons (including Knife, excluding 9mm Pistol(s)). Damage ROUNDED UP.
  • Passive (Nightvision): Nightvision drains battery as fast as flashlight.
  • Passive (ZED Time extension): ZED Time cannot be extended by certain amount of time but instead it resets back to 3 seconds.
  • Skill (Fallback): Extra damage affect all knives and 9mm Pistol(s). Weapon swap speed bonus affect equip and putdown times of all weapons making it happen 2 times faster. Extra damage example: 9mm Pistol (25 points of damage) with Fallback skill does Roundup (25 + 25x0.5) = 38 points of damage. When it comes to calculation of knife damage, this skill DOES work along the passive damage bonus and Hollow Point Rounds skill.
  • Skill (Impact Rounds): Skill works only with on-perk weapons.
  • Skill (Hollow Point Rounds): Despite the skill description says 25% increase in damage, it's actually 30%. Doesn't work on 9mm pistol.
  • Skill (Tactician): Skill adds +30% resistance to slow-mo to weapons on top of the base 35% resistance. This makes weapon swapping ((1-0.2)x(0.35+0.3)) / ((1-0.2)x0.3) = ~2.17 times faster.

On-perk Weapons

Following weapons and damage types are associated with the Commando. They are getting damage bonuses and buffs to their attributes from the respective skills:
















The Commando is a viable squad member that greatly increases overall awareness of cloaked ZEDs and also provides ZED Time extensions.

Conserve your ammo: at early waves use the advantage of the Fallback skill to one-shot small ZEDs and save yourself some rifle ammo.

Stay close to your team: keep in mind that you reveal cloaked ZEDs within a limited range - straying too far away from your team will not allow them to see the sneaky Stalkers.

Although it is recommended for the Commando to focus on killing small ZEDs, the skilled Commando can also take down Scrakes. Before engaging make sure you have both of your rifles reloaded. Use the advantage of Fallback to switch between them faster or utilize the extra stumble power of Impact Rounds to create extra space between you and the Scrake. But don't forget the most important thing - aim to the head!

The HMTech-401 Assault Rifle has its niche in the arsenal of every Commando. Not only it does as much damage as the AK-12, it also lets you heal your teammates.

The M16 Assault Rifle is quite efficient in the hands of a Commando. It gets all the damage bonuses the Commando has, and not just for bullets but also to grenades. Give it a shot!


  • According to the character's favourite weapon lines, Donovan Neal and Lt. Bill Masterson are the Commandos of the team.
