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

General Information

Commandos has the unique ability to make Stalkers visible to your 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 Commandos gain.

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

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 affecting all knives and 9mm Pistol(s). Weapon swap speed bonus affecting equip and putdown times of all weapons making it happen 2 times faster. Extra damage example: 9mm Pistol (15 points of damage) with Fallback skill does Roundup (15 + 15x1.1) = 32 points of damage.
  • Skill (Impact Rounds): Skill works only with on-perk weapons.
  • 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:

AssaultRifle_AK12
AssaultRifle_AR15
AssaultRifle_Bullpup
AssaultRifle_M16M203

AssaultRifle_SCAR
HEGrenade

Strategy

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

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

Trivia

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