Successfully capturing an enemy facility as a squad leader earns Command Experience Points (CEP) instead of Battle Experience Points. As a character accumulates CEP they increase Command Rank (CR) which gives them abilities useful to commanders. Increases in command rank also apply various cosmetic changes to the character's uniform.
