Description
A thoroughly modern 5.56mm assault rifle, made in Europe. Short, lightweight and reliable, the perfect trade-off between power, range and handling.
Comes with custom stocks, grips, foregrips, barrels and body.

The Commando 553 assault rifle is a primary weapon available in PAYDAY 2. It was added with the release of the Armored Transport DLC, along with the Swedish K and the Gruber Kurz.

OverviewEdit

The Commando 553 is the first primary weapon that was added post-launch to the game and is available for purchase at any level if the player has the Armored Transport DLC. This makes it a great choice for low-level players.

The Commando 553 has a relatively high ammo capacity and base damage for an assault rifle, as well as a high base concealment. A large number of modifications are available for it, but most of them reduce concealment and only two increase it (one added by the Gage Mod Courier DLC). As a result, it becomes a reasonable choice for stealth missions.

When fully modified. the Commando 553 can be a great weapon for offensive missions, performing similarly to the AMR-16, but with much more ammo. In terms of stability, accuracy and ammo capacity, when unmodified, it is similar to the CAR-4.

The default iron sights are very closed and obscure most of a target. Even with such low recoil, this makes aiming very difficult without a sight modification. The rate of fire for the Commando 553 is lower than the AMR-16, lowering the DPS, but making ammo conservation easier.

One of its flaws is its low accuracy. At longer distances, it can be difficult shooting snipers or thinning out assault waves before they reach the player. As most of its modifications only improve stability, it may be a good idea to have a high-accuracy secondary when using this weapon. However with with all of the DLCs it is possible to make it an extremely accurate weapon but doing so severely compromises concealment.

The Commando 553 also has the fastest reload of any assault rifle (since the First Person Animation update) at 1.65s for a tactical reload and 2.4s for a full reload. With Kilmer basic, these values can be reduced to 1.3 and 1.9s respectively, bringing it close to the reload times of most SMGs (even with the SMG Specialist skill).

SummaryEdit

Pros:

  • Cheap and has no level restriction, good for new players or those re-ranking after going Infamous
  • Well-balanced statistics, performs well in most situations
  • High concealment, especially with Wide Stock and Heat Treated Body
  • Fastest reload of any assault rifle due to the changes made in the First Person Animation update.
  • With the skills Silent Killer and The Professional in conjunction with The Bigger the Better Suppressor the Commando 553 can be made comparable to other assault rifles but with a much larger ammo pool.
  • Has the largest ammo pool of any assault rifle with the JP36 and the Clarion.

Cons:

  • Low accuracy without Gage Mod Courier
  • Generally low damage and accuracy even when modded
  • Concealment is impaired severely when certain builds are attempted
  • Built-in sights are tight and may be difficult to use
  • Many unique attachments only available through card drops

BuildsEdit

This build increases all combat related values to increase the effectiveness of the Commando 553 with low damage (39, 40.9 with Fast and Furious), low but usable accuracy (56) and decent stability (76).

The Commando 553 can be modified to become a highly concealable weapon; available at level 0, useful for players about to go Infamous, with just two modifications bringing its concealment to 27. However it has a terrible accuracy rating of 8 severely limiting the weapon's utility outside of close quarters combat.

Without hampering concealment either a Low Profile Suppressor or Stubby Compensator can be fitted at the player's choice. The biggest drawback of this build it arguably the terrible standard ironsight on the Commando 553 (see above) as replacing it will reduce concealment by at least 1.

SkinsEdit

  • Hang Loose is another name for the shaka sign.
  • Written on the stock of the Howl skin is "Räkna till tio", reading "Count to ten".

AchievementsEdit

I'm not a Crook! I'm not a Crook!
While wearing the "37th" mask, destroy 69 snipers using the Commando 553 rifle.

TriviaEdit

  • The Commando 553 is based on the SG 552 Commando or more specifically, the SG 552-2 as evidenced by its permanent flip-up ironsights system. With the Long Barrel the Commando becomes the SG 552-2 LB.
    • Its name, however, suggests a closer resemblance to the SG 553, which is essentially an upgraded SG 552 whose looks can be roughly replicated in the game by equipping the Railed Foregrip onto the Commando.
    • The SG 552's integral 3-round burst fire mode is not usable in the game, despite the fire-selector block visually displaying the option.
  • It is the only assault rifle in the game to not get any benefit from equipping the Tactical Stock. All equipping the stock does is making the gun harder to conceal.
  • Printed underneath the bolt compartment of the Commando are the words "Restricted for law enforcement only". This is easier to notice with the Heat Treated Body equipped.
