"Team leader who can call in fire support with binoculars when near an Observer class."
— In-game description

The Commander is a class featured in Insurgency: Sandstorm.

The Commander class has assault rifles and battle rifles as their primary weapon. They have access to fire support binoculars (default keybind: 5) that can be used to call in a variety of support utilities from armed helicopters to artillery strikes. The Commander has to remain within 10 meters of an Observer to initiate the call for fire support.

Note: The calls for fire support are only completed if the Observers complete their voice lines for transmission. Likewise, the Commander must finish their voice line to call support before the Observers begin their voice lines. Essentially, both Commanders and Observers must survive throughout the radio transmissions for Station/Outpost to acknowledge fire support is on the way. Additionally, wounds sustained or heavy suppression from explosives and bullets can disrupt the voice lines, causing Station/Outpost to ask for a repeat of the fire support request. Commanders and Observers will automatically continue to transmit if they are interrupted, although with more irritated voice lines.
