The Halo Infinite Commando Rifle has stood out as one of the better UNSC themed firearms so far amongst all the new weapons. After a surprise drop on November 15, many players have been flocking to Halo Infinite, and with lots of new things to try in this newest iteration, not everything is immediately clear. The way the challenges have been implemented are confusing some players, and it's been reported that many of them don't quite work as intended. The amount of new weapons can also be a little overwhelming too, so if you need to figure out the Halo Infinite Commando Rifle and how to complete its challenge, then this is the guide for you.

Halo Infinite Commando Rifle: What Is It And Where Can It Be Found?

As stated, the Commando Rifle is a new gun in Halo Infinite. It's in-universe name is VK47 Commando, and it's a new weapon designed by the UNSC in the fight against the new threat of the Banished. In terms of its use, it is somewhat of a cross between the standard Assault Rifle and the Battle Rifle. It's still precise in the right hands, but it's fully automatic, with a slower rate of fire and higher recoil than the Assault Rifle. It also only has 20 rounds, so you'll want to make the shots count.

As it fits between the already existing UNSC rifles, it is better as a medium-range weapon, largely thanks to its 3x tactical scope and fire rate. At a longer range, it's dwarfed by the power of the Battle Rifle, and up close it can be worse than the Assault Rifle. That's not to say it's useless at close-range, as if you can tame its strong recoil, you can do a lot of damage very quickly. Likewise, this means it's somewhat useful at long-range, but just hope your enemy doesn't have a sniper or Battle Rifle. 

It seems to be available on most, if not all, the maps in-game, usually up in vertical areas with medium-range overlooks. For example, it's located on Recharge in two of the opposing areas that overlook the B spot on the Strongholds mode. This makes it a perfect weapon to replace your pistol with, giving you the versatility of dealing with close/mid/long-ranges.

Halo Infinite Commando Rifle: How To Get A Kill

Halo Infinite Commando Rifle gameplay

The Commando Rifle is another weapon that requires you to kill an enemy to complete a challenge. It's one of the easier one, as the Commando is a pretty straightforward weapon, and a few well-placed shots will put down any enemy. It's also one of the most easily accessible weapons in-game, thanks to its prevalence on many maps, where it often has two or more spawn points.
