EXPECT BUGS. The latter end of development for 1.1.0 was rushed, so I didn't do much playtesting for new changes.

Skill upgrades (and one nerf):

I've included config to disable all of the vanilla changes - mostly in case you don't like certain edits, but also for compatibility with other Commando mods (mostly Phase Round Lightning for those who like that mod more)
- Double Tap has slightly less maximum bloom, +40m range, and 0 minimum spread (also has config to revert attack speed changes in anniversary update).
- Phase Round has config options for increasing size, removing chained-hit damage, and increasing the base to 400% (defaults to only the size buff being enabled, with the skill otherwise functioning as in vanilla).
- Phase Blast's overall damage has been nerfed from 1600% to 1400% (the rest of his kit got stronger to compensate).
- Tactical Dive has been adjusted to be a more combat-oriented skill - while it's slightly shorter than in vanilla, it also travels faster and has a second charge added, in addition to briefly stunning adjacent enemies and giving Commando about 50% damage reduction (can be adjusted with config).
- Tactical Slide's dash hasn't been touched, but the aerial jump has been given +20% more velocity.
- Suppressive Fire now deals -5% less per bullet and has much more spread - however, the bullet count has been doubled, giving better overall damage up close and allowing Commando to spread stun more easily.
- Frag Grenade now has access to a unique debuff described further below.

New features:

Heavy Tap (Primary)

Commando's upgraded his guns to fire much more accurately, allowing him to bypass the falloff issues his Double Tap had while also dealing high damage. However, he can't fire continuously - he'll need to keep an eye on the six charges this skill comes with.
- There's an alternate version of this skill available in configs if you don't like the cooldown mechanic; it instead has a forced delay between shots, acting similar to the first game's Double Tap.

Plasma Tap (Primary)

Inspired heavily by Metroid Prime and Environmental Station Alpha, Plasma Tap has very low range compared to his other ammo choices. However, it more than makes up for it in damage - in addition to the bullets themselves being comparable to Double Tap in DPS, they can also fire lightning at the target and nearby enemies for even more damage.

Phase Missile (Secondary)

Using his right pistol, Commando fires between 3-6 missiles depending on how long the skill is charged. They deal little damage on their own, but their numbers and ability to stun make them quite potent at crowd control.

Mini Flamethrower (Secondary)

A melee-oriented secondary similar to Artificer's flamethrower, but smaller, weaker, and significantly faster. Also inflicts the new Scorched debuff, giving it more damage than is listed in the description; it also pushes you backwards slightly in the air, giving you another form of mobility.

Spark Chaser (Special)

Fires a slow-moving orb that deals damage over time, in addition to arcing out to other enemies. Mostly designed for melee range, as it doesn't travel very far before fizzling out.

Sweep Barrage (Special)

Taken from an unused skill; fires a minimum of four shots forward, aimed at any enemies within a certain cone. Must be enabled in config.

Collector (Passive - must be enabled in config)

With this skill active, Commando gains small stat boosts on levelup in addition to extra HP/damage. (thanks to Krysto for suggesting the original, also known as Military Training)

Second Wind (Passive - must be enabled in config)

With this skill active, Commando gains additional move and attack speed when low on HP.

Shattered (Debuff)

A new debuff exclusive to Frag Grenade; it lowers armor by -25 for 2.5 seconds.

Other notes

  • If you want to give feedback, I've got a server for RoR2 projects here:
    (if that link doesn't work for some reason, you can also contact me at FMRadio11#8912 on discord)
  • Don't worry about letting me know about bugs/balancing issues, I'm fully expecting them at this point
  • Scepter support for the altered vanilla skills probably won't happen due to how AncientScepter is coded - I can't alter or replace the upgraded skills due to stuff being either internal or private. Go bother them if you want to see changes

Post-Beta Changelog


  • Updated to new ContentPack system (THIS MAY HAVE BROKEN PROJECTILE NETWORKING. If certain skills aren't working in multiplayer, lemme know)
  • CD Heavy Tap damage 2x170% -> 2x165%, 4 charges, cooldown 2.75s -> 2.5s
  • Micro Missile now uses sweet spot falloff model (also used by Frag Grenade and Scrap Launcher in vanilla)
  • Sweep Barrage now attempts to search on each Fire() instance if no targets were available
  • Not much else this time, I'd planned to package this as part of 1.2.0 but RoR2 update broke stuff


  • Updated Plasma Tap and Phase Missile sound effects
  • Mini Flamethrower now uses its inspiration's sound effects (this and the new achievement sound effect is the bulk of why this update is over three times as large)

  • Axiom Verge achievement now has an additional sound effect

  • New Tactical Dive's description will now be changed depending on active config, similarly to Frag Grenade and Phase Round
  • Errors fixed in Thunderstore description
  • Removed unused skills and other unnecessary code

  • So. Remember how I did a fix for networking projectiles and stuff? So it turns out that I put them in a different method so I could move it before the unlockable setup, since that's where the hook into RoR2.ContentPack was placed, right? Turns out I completely forgot to call that method before uploading 1.1.7, so uh two skills completely broke lmao

  • Heavy Tap's tracer wasn't finished in 1.0.8, should be coded correctly now
  • Micro Missiles should now fly slower initially but speed up over time
  • Micro Missiles will now home in on nearby enemies similar to Visions of Heresy, may need reworking later

  • Heavy Tap tracer made slightly longer (I think???)
  • Alt version of Heavy Tap renamed to "Heavy Tap (legacy)"
  • Heavy Tap (legacy) damage 2x170% -> 2x130%, speed increased to compensate (it's weaker than Double Tap, but not by much)

  • Suppressive Fire damage 12x65% -> 10x80%

  • Didn't actually change Plasma Tap unlock last time, my b
  • Unneeded logs regarding Plasma Tap removed


  • Prefabs reverted to old method; passives now have no effect if the survivor's base name token is not "COMMANDO_BODY_NAME" (should fix mods like Sniper Classic benefitting from it)
  • Tracer prefab and lightning effect for Plasma Tap updated, should hopefully look more electric now (also gives compatibility with BalanceOverhaulRBO post-Tesla nerf but that's not as important)
  • Second Wind will now work if brought from above 50% to below 25% in one hit, previously would not activate until they heal back to above 25% due to leftovers from an older version of the passive
  • Second Wind now has a visual effect when active
  • The unlocks for both Heavy Tap and Plasma Tap weren't given if you exited the stage via a portal; both of them have been changed to when the teleporter is fully charged
  • Added logs for when certain modules are complete to make debugging a bit easier


  • Plasma Tap's tracer may be slightly different, currently experimenting with improving the visuals
  • Added in a missing base.isAuthority check to reworked Tactical Slide, should hopefully fix animations in multiplayer
  • EDIT: The prefab fix from this update didn't work, see 1.1.0 notes


  • Micro Missile duration 0.2 -> 0.16, no longer speeds up with additional missiles (this was causing unintended firing patterns; may need to adjust further if this got too nerfed)
  • Micro Missile's skill classes now have Pain priority instead of PrioritySkill, may cause unintended behavior but should fix the skill interrupting itself


  • Added in ResourceAPI
  • Considering taking bets for what small error will cause this mod to crash and burn next time
  • Thank you to everyone who's been pointing out these mistakes, I'm asleep at the wheel ig


  • HealthComponent.TakeDamage was being called even if passives were turned off, should be fixed now


  • Double Tap spread 0.08 -> 0.12
  • Heavy Tap damage 165% -> 170%

  • Tactical Dive now has 2 charges
  • Tactical Slide now has +20% more vertical velocity when used in the air

  • Fixed several typos (seriously, I must've been asleep at the keyboard lol)

  • Tactical Dive's armor boost was incorrectly labeled as a debuff
  • Optimized asset loading; achievement icons should now work
  • A lot of bloat was removed (shouldn't have any effect on gameplay)
  • R2API logs now have the correct title

Beta changelog
