—Paradigm description

Commando (アタッカー, Atakkā?, lit. Attacker) is a role from Final Fantasy XIII-2. Its main focus is to use powerful attacks to keep the target's chain gauge from falling and deal heavy damage when the opponent is staggered. Serah and Noel start with this job with Noel specializing in it. There are also numerous Paradigm Pack monsters that serve as Commandos. Lightning in the Lightning's Story: Requiem of the Goddess DLC scenario has a role based on the Commando called Paladin.

Etymology Edit

Commando is a soldier or operative of an elite light infantry or special operations force often specializing in amphibious landings, parachuting or abseiling.

Trivia Edit

  • When Serah attempts to launch a staggered enemy with a melee attack, she stabs the sword into the enemy dealing low damage and then slashes the blade upwards launching the target.
  • Noel's Attack command is a flurry of blows hitting several times every attack queue; this means he will hit more times than the number of Attack queued. However, his smaller sword will only deal a small amount of damage.
    • His Blitz for Ravage will hit twice too, but again, with one of the blows dealing lower damage than the initial.
  • Serah, much like her sister Lightning, jumps back and shoots the enemy when the attack command is used as the last command queue with four or more ATB segments.
