Human and batarian Commanders are armed with the M-76 Revenant light machine gun, while turians are equipped with M-300 Claymore heavy shotguns. They can equip their guns with Incendiary and Disruptor Ammo.
Commanders can provide a stats boost to nearby troops.
- Not surprisingly, the best way to handle a Commander is at range. Sniper rifles make good weapons for taking these soldiers down, but in close quarters, assault rifles will do. Because they are so durable, it's a good idea to shift your team's fire to concentrate on the Commander until he can be crowd-controlled with biotics or tech. If dealing with the Claymore-wielding variant, keeping them away is a must.
- Overload, Incinerate and Reave are all good ways to deal with Commanders.
- On higher difficulties, using powers to drain their shields and destroy their armor will prove useful at a distance, allowing you to conserve ammo and kill them quickly.
