Commanders come in two varieties, the Defensive Commander and the Offensive Commander. The Defensive Commander wears a small blue patch on his right shoulder, while the Offensive wears a red patch. As their names suggest, one uses defensive tactics while the other uses offensive ones.
Commanders either wear caps or no headgear at all, making them vulnerable to headshots. They also do not wear any body armour. Taking out a Commander will cause his squad to break up and become less organized. It is advised to kill Commanders first before taking out the rest of his squad.
