A commander is a unit intended to represent the player in-game and is the leader of the player's forces. A player who loses his or her commander is defeated.

A commander is the very first unit available to the player, and acts as both an attack unit and a tech 1 fabrication unit. Commanders can build some Tech 1 structures, as well as two Tech 2 structures for late-game tactics. Commanders act as an automatic production unit at the start of the game to help players get a start on their economy, though it is highly recommended to build more economy structures before building an army. It is impossible to build more commanders, so the player only gets one and must ensure its safety. Due to it's fairly large amount of hitpoints and strong attack, it is a difficult target in the early game. A commander surviving an exploding nuke in immediate proximity is common.
