A guide to how the Commando works, items that he needs, and how to play him.

 
 

Introduction

 
The Commando, the original starter character. He is an all around character, not excelling in any one situation, but not utterly failing in it either. The Commando is a reliable character that can attack from distance, while able to still deal decent damage. He is good for players who don’t want a hard character and don’t want to just be good in certain situations.

Items

These four items are basically a universal item build, they work on every character. This allows for dealing large amounts of Bleed, boosts on attack speed, as well as powerful lifesteal. These all increase crit chance. (Lens-Maker’s Glasses increase by 10%, Predatory Instincts, Shatterspleen, and Harvester’s Scythe all increase by 5%) The Predatory Instincts give bonus Attack Speed on crits, which are guaranteed, Shatterspleen bleeds on crits, as well as makes bleeding enemies explode on death, and Harvester’s Scythe heals you on crits. These allow you to deal lots of damage while keeping your health up. 
 
AtG Missile Mk. 1, Ukulele, and Molten Perforator

These three items provide good amounts of CC. AtG Missile Mk. 1 and Ukulele activate on-hit CC effects, (Ukulele being chain lightning, and AtG Missile Mk. 1 being missile that seek enemies and damage them) which are good because of Commando’s high Proc Coefficient. The Molten Perforator has a chance on-hit to make 3 magma balls fly out of the enemy, dealing 300% damage each.

Brilliant Behemoth 
 
This will allow all your attacks to explode, being very useful for killing a swarm of enemies or attacking from very far away. This also makes all the bounces of Frag Grenades explode, so purposely making the Frag Grenade bounce alot can put out many explosions. 
 
 

How to Play

 
You should stay a medium distance away. This should make the damage falloff of some of the Commando’s attacks decreased or gone. If you are using on-hit effects, mainly just use your Double Tap, as it hits quickly. Save your Tactical Roll/ Slide for when you are about to get hit by a projectile, such as a Stone Golem’s laser.
