Commando is a playable character in Risk of Rain 2.

He is intended as a well rounded and easy to understand character with no glaring weaknesses or strengths. However Commando can be one of the strongest characters for abusing the effects of Item Stacking due to the speed and high Proc Coefficient of many of his skills.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Double Tap has one of the the highest potentials to proc item effects out of any Primary skill.
  • Phase Round resets the accuracy spread of Double Tap. To maximize long range DPS, Double Tap a bit before using Phase Round to reset the accuracy and Double Tap again.
  • Tactical Dive can be used to avoid falling damage from any height if used before hitting the ground.
  • Tactical Dive into upwards slopes for a huge upwards jump.
  • When airborne, Tactical Slide will propel you slightly forward and upward.
  • You can jump during Tactical Slide, maintaining your forward momentum and allowing you to jump gaps you otherwise would not be able to.
  • Suppressive Fire is a perfect tool to stun enemies and cancel their attacks. Alternate between Suppressive Fire and Tactical Slide for maximum survivability.
