Commando Corn is a Legendary variant of Kernel Corn in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 which was added in the Frontline Fighters DLC. He fires slower than the standard Kernel Corn, but his shots deal splash damage, similar to the Rugby Star. His Legendary mode is called 'Full Commando', and when it is activated Commando Corn's ammo clip will increase, from 20 to 50, as well as giving him increased speed.
"Commando Corn leads the elite combat group known only as the Commando Crops. Raised and nurtured in the battlefield trenches, he's developed a fearsome battle prowess that has earned him respect among his peers. If you have a problem.... if no one else can help.... and if you can find him.... maybe you can hire.... Commando Corn."
His fast firing baby corn rockets deal just enough splash damage to forgive a missed shot, and his Full Commando mode gives him extra ammo!

The primary weapon of the Commando Corn is the "Baby Corn Buster". It has a rather slow fire rate and has a clip size of 20. The reload speed is noticeably long. It makes up for these flaws with its high damage (dealing 15 damage per direct hit). It also deals 2 splash damage against Zombies.
|Butter Barrage||Kernel Corn tosses a Hot Potato. A massive amount of butter is deployed from the sky in an "x" shape wherever the Hot Potato lands. After a (very) short amount of time, the pieces of butter detonate dealing damage to all zombies caught in the explosions.|
|Bigger Better Butter||Revealed in a live stream, it is the alternative ability to the Butter Barrage. Kernel Corn tosses a Hot Potato, but instead of multiple pieces of butter being fired, one giant piece of butter falls from the sky. it deals 200 damage. If it lands on an enemy zombie, it inflicts an extra 20 damage to that Zombie, as well as paralyzes it. The AOE is about the same as the Butter Barrage, but deals one heap of instant damage when it explodes (Butter Barrage has multiple explosions).|
|Husk Hop||Kernel Corn leaps into the air in a straight line while firing his Cob Busters directly below him, damaging all targets below him.|
|Shuck Shot||Similar to ZPG, Kernel Corn fires two big cobs straight in front of him (each one dealing 125 damage). It does massive damage and is capable of instantly vanquishing anything it hits (except for Z-Mechs), if the cobs manage to score a direct hit.|
|Multi-Shuck||The Multi-Shuck fires 6 corns that deal 26, 30, 25, 20, 15, 15, 10, 22 and 20 damage for a total of up to 183 damage, but the projectiles are spread apart a lot. Like the Shuck Shot, the Multi-Shuck takes 24 seconds to recharge.|
Be aware that the Commando Corn's splash damage radius is not that big and will not account for a completely missed shot. His legendary meter also makes him more potent than other Kernel Corn variants, but the player needs to be very accurate with their shots. It is also good to go for bigger groups if you are farther away from the enemy because of its splash damage and good accuracy.
Although he may have a slower fire rate, Commando Corn can do what other Kernel Corn's variants cannot do: splash damage. With his splash damage, you can take on a group of zombies at once instead of vanquishing them one by one. Note that this only slightly injures Zombies that aren't directly hit by your shots. Aim for the biggest Zombie in the area as they are easiest to hit. For really accurate players, go for Imps whenever you can. Imps can get vanquish by 5 direct hits from your primary weapon. Make sure to reload every time you vanquish an enemy to ensure that you have enough ammo in your clip for your next target. Vanquishing normal AI Zombies and Zombie Turrets are great ways to quickly fill up your Legendary meter. If you manage to successfully fill your meter, DO NOT RELOAD AFTER EACH VANQUISH. Your magazine size increases from 20 to 50 for the duration of the Legendary meter, meaning that you have plenty of ammo to take on multiple Zombies.
Even though the Commando Corn has splash damage, he is more of a precision character. He only does big damage to you if he manages to directly hit you. Try to move unpredictably to make it hard for him to hit you. Note that his missed shots will probably damage you anyway (but only slightly). Ice variants are very effective against this plant as he is big and easy to hit.
- Commando Corn's description references the opening theme of the A-Team: If you have a problem... if no-one else can help... and if you can find them... maybe you can hire... the A-Team.
