I switched on the option that displays a merc rank before his name in tactical (private = lvl 1, private 1st class = lvl 2 etc) in the hopes of identifying enemy ranks better. But it seems those don't follow the same pattern? What on earth is a specialist, for example? And what does Big Boss entail? Is there any way to tell xp level of enemy soldiers? Please help me make sense of this.

Enemy ranks are stored in Tabledata\EnemyRank.xml. You can name them anything you like. Current ranks are based on US military.

Thank you! I can see specialist in there, so that is cleared up.

One thing still remains though, what about the marker "big boss"? I keep seeing that, is that not a rank (in which case it's not in the file you described)? Could that be one of the stranger individual names, like "xnemesis"?

"Big Boss" is one of the names of enemies. Check "TableData\Profiles\SoldierProfileEnemyRegular.xml".

Specifically, the weird 'forum style' names are due to a promotion we ran back during the Flashback KS campaign.
