"AR Commando platform customized to 9mm."
— In-game description

The Commando 9 is an assault rifle featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege in the Operation Burnt Horizon expansion pack. It is available for use by Mozzie.


The Colt 9mm SMG is an M16-based submachine gun firing 9mm rounds. Unlike the M16, it uses a simple blowback operation. The magazines themselves are a copy of the Israeli Uzi SMG magazine, modified to fit the Colt and lock the bolt back after the last shot.

In game, the Commando 9 is designated as an assault rifle, despite its SMG-like damage drop-off and ADS time identical to that of the SMG class. It functions similarly to the K1A, but with a smaller magazine capacity and a higher fire rate. The high damage output, decent rate of fire and low recoil makes it a highly lethal weapon.

The weapon also comes with a unique reload animation of catching the magazine during a Tactical Reload; when there is still ammo left in the magazine.


  • High damage output
  • Low recoil
  • Quick reload time
  • Quick ADS time compared to other Assault Rifles
  • Mild damage dropoff


  • Low magazine capacity

  • The weapon is labeled as an assault rifle in-game despite being a submachine gun in real life.
  • The specific Colt 9mm SMG that the Commando 9 is based off of is the R0991 model.
  • This variant does not have a 3-round burst option. Only semi and fully-automatic capabilities.
  • The R0639 variant of the Colt SMG does have 3-round burst, but no full-auto; no Colt SMG exists that possesses all three firing modes.
