The Weyland-Yutani Commandos are an elite special forces formation which, unlike the Colonial Marines,
are privately owned and directed by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation. A healthy pay-packet and access to an
extensive arsenal of weapons ensures that they share the same interests as the corporation and never sway
from the objectives set out by their bosses. Those objectives are usually highly sensitive and often the means
to a lucrative end.
When they are not on high-priority military missions, the Weyland-Yutani Commandos are expected to protect
businessmen and managers from within the corporate structure against any threat, regardless of whether they
are in the comfort of their offices, on a colonising expedition, or in a full-blown confrontation. In addition to
this, some also provide security for the company’s most secretive operations and regularly guard ‘off-limits’
spaces, guaranteeing that not only are there no infiltrators, but also that the researchers, inventors, engineers,
manufacturers or scientists are working to the expected quota.
Given their experience with highly sensitive assignments, there is little the Weyland-Yutani commandos have
not seen. Colonial Marines are considered by many to ‘talk-the-talk’ and not ‘walk-the-walk’, but by contrast, the
Weyland-Yutani Commandos have come into contact with all manner of aliens and do not shy away from conflict
even against the most terrifying opponents the universe could possible throw at them.
