Figure that some of the nicknames are specific for some specializations & others are general. Wouldn't mind a future mod in this to just take a nickname & run it through a few translations (and back) to make it sound like some crazy nickname out of some Japanese dream (ie. Super monkey karate doomfish).
Do the nicknames have any specific meanings, or are they random?
I've got a guy with the nickname Sentinel. I use him to overwatch a lot, so I assumed it was related. My sniper has the most kills of anyone on the team and is nicknamed Demon. One of my assault guys is nicknamed Hardcore. And I have a heavy nicknamed Bull. Those all sound class/role assigned to me.
the nicknames are awesome lol.. i also name my units after friends / gf / family... and my friend is nicknamed "tombstone" i guess because he was past 20 kills after 3 missions.. the gf sniper is "el diablo" and my character is called "nitro"... all the run and running i use him for i guess.. i love it...
Now i know this is a very old topic, but, I've been playing this a lot recently and i have some noticed that you do earn nicknames dependent of how you play that particular team member.
These are all the names i have so far * i have a full barracks and probably will nd up getting them all to col. for sheets 'n giggles.
