The Assault Commander is an enemy in Duke Nukem Forever.

Description

The Assault Commander is a flying enemy (fatass blob) that fires rockets from its rectum while constantly moving. In addition, it can use its blades as a weapon by charging towards the player, making them deadly in melee as well as ranged combat. They also have the ability to instantly mutate humans into Pig Cops, using the weapon on one of their arms.

Combat Analysis

The most important to remember while engaging one of these is to stay on the move at all times. The Rocket Launcher does decent damage on it's own and the Spinning Blades attack can be difficult to dodge if the player is standing still.

When the player first encounters the Assault Commander in The Lady Killer: Part 3, they will have access to limited arsenal and each one has their own advantages:

  • M1911 - Tricky, but not impossible to pull off headshots from a greated distance for bonus damage.
  • AT Laser - No reloading involved, but may need to access the EDF Crate several times.
  • Shotgun - Excellent close-up damage.
  • Newly acquired laser tripbombs. When the Assault Commander appears he turns two EDF soldiers into Pig Cops armed with shotguns; dispose of them and then it's business. The trick is to throw the tripbombs high, one at a time and run around so the AC chases you, setting off the bombs. Do this a few times and you're done!

Future encounters allow more advanced weaponry, such as the Devastator, RPG, and Shrink Ray. One shot from a shrink ray will allow you to squish the Assault Commander provided it isn't above the player.

The final Assault Commander in the The Doctor Who Cloned Me can be expanded by the Expander (DNF), but not outright killed by it; the player will still have to finish it off with conventional weaponry.
