Ranks

From Heroes & Generals Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Each character has a rank calculated from his experience on the battlefield. The XP is divided into 2 level-categories and then added to get the Rank. The 2 categories focus on 2 different ways of playing; Combat XP Level (gained from killing and not getting killed) and Tactical XP Level (Gained from completing objectives, leading squads and not having men under your command killed).

Combat Ranks[edit]

Ranks are given to characters in an assault team according to experience level.

The Rank system is slightly different for the services (Panzer and Air Force Air Force units follow different ranking levels, Germany and US have different ranks as well).

The system is designed to let other players know your experience level.

Strategic Rank[edit]

Strategic ranks are given to the command officer. It is based on the commands level within the command structure.

Heroes to Generals[edit]

When a Hero reaches combat level 12 they have the option of progressing from a Hero to a General. This means that they can no longer participate in FPS battles, but have extra command over assault teams in the Generals aspect of the game.

Notes:

  1. There was no special insignia to indicate a senior corporal in the US army during WW2 so the one used (2 chevorns and a star) is entirely fictional.
  2. The Hauptfeldwebel (colloquially, "Der Spieß"), was either a Stabsfeldwebel or Oberfeldwebel. He was identified by two stripes of silver Tresse around each forearm 100 mm (3 15/16 inches) above the bottom of the sleeve. We have shown these two stripes on the shoulderpatch of a Stabsfeldwebel.
