The MLS-4X Commando is a weapon that features multiple simultaneous shots with the ability to guide the missiles towards a specific target as the ammo is approaching said target. They are truly effective against large bugs and other heavier targets.

The fact that its missiles are guided makes it more fun to use, and it is specifically designed for players who prefer heavy weapons to defeat the biggest and toughest enemies in the game.

Many players who are accustomed to using powerful weapons such as the RR or the Spear have expressed their satisfaction with the new weapon’s power and effectiveness, particularly the guided missiles.

If the studio doesn’t overdo future adjustments, this could be one of the game’s best weapons. These types of changes make the experience much more entertaining for the community.

Despite this Major Order having a significant impact in terms of reward and addition to Helldivers 2, many players have been complaining that these objectives no longer have the same relevance as before.

One of the things the community points out is that the studio should stop going in circles and make the players’ actions in the game truly matter. For now, the development team has not said if they will make any major changes to the game’s dynamics.
