Hi there,

 

does have every race a commander?

 

I found out, that sectoids, snakemen, ethereals have.

 

But what about floaters and mutons?

 

Never found this out.

Floaters have commanders. They're like Sectoids in that they can get all the available ranks except for Terrorist.

 

Mutons don't get commanders. The game will still generate them when it creates the map and will give them the commander's equipment, but it will then get demoted to Soldier.

Thank you for your answer.

 

Is this with mutons a bug?

No, it's normal behaviour. What happens is that the game will first create the map and populate it with all the ranks that are meant to appear for that mission type. Then it goes through and checks the ranks of all the aliens. If the alien race is not meant to have a certain rank, it then replaces it with a soldier. Ethereals are slightly different in that they get replaced with a Leader instead.
