XP Objectives

  • Dealing damage with Commando Weapons
  • Killing Stalkers with Commando Weapons

You do not have to be currently playing as a Commando to level it up. As long as you use Commando weapons it will count.

XP is not awarded until an enemy dies. No matter how much you contributed, as long as you hit it once you will get the full experience value. If you hit an enemy with weapons from different perks, the XP will be divided equally among them.
