Are silent weapon really good for stealth? Like Bows, Spy pistols, Suppressed pistols, pipes etc. Or there is no difference, soldiers can use rifles as well nothing will change?

I don't seem to be getting the CBT events to trigger for the individual tournaments, beyond the initial announcement event. It's been 4-5 months since that first notice, but nothing.

Spoiler:
Getting the CBT chain started and going is my only hiccup left for the School Graduation via VIP room for Analytics.
Do I need to not
Spoiler:
have certain facilities down already (I'm already at Luxury Spa going into 2nd year) for the event triggers,
or is the RNG really just that bad?

Any insight would be appreciated. Either in DMs to avoid spoilers public or otherwise.

RNG is RNG. You can cheek the xpedia for the % and what not, but yeah, it can get really bad if you get bad rng.

27th April Year 1
I've completed a mission Help the Lokk'Naars. Mission description have warned me about danger of interfering in this ancestral feud but I did it any way.
Wiki says that Ninja will be going after me because I interfered with their evil masters.
Am I gonna have tough days? Am I doomed for irritating Ninjas this early? Do I need to start all over?

How does a security corridor contribute to defense efforts? Does it simply provide a security camera that quickly gets wrecked or there is something else?
It also has grates on the top/bottom levels, preventing flanks.

No, ninja war now requires a research to be started.
You've got an easy mission for a chance for good loot.

I seems. it doesn't requires any special research from a player. I've already got an event Mysterious Photographer, which is prelude to Sneaky Ninjas. They are totally going to attack another village and force -400 infamy penalty on me if I'm not show up. And if I do show up and win they will launch Seeker ship to find my Hideout and invade it. That is what I understond from Wiki. And Ninjas are tough. Oh boy, what to do?

A Catgirl with camopaint outfit has CAMO: 23/7.
So during a day she will be spotted from a distance of 23 titles less then my other units.
Could you please tell me guys how much far an enemy unit or my soldier can see during a day by default?

Usually 40 tiles, you can just count them to see for yourself.

Great game guys. Could you please help me figure out the following:
Does Gal's rank - for example Boss Gal - influence only her salary?
Does an original crew get promoted if a player hire multiple peasants and Catgirl outlaws? Or those branches have their own hierarchy?

Like in basic X-Com, there are morale-related effects. Details here.

Also, certain trainings are limited to specific ranks.

There is only one hierarchy for everyone. Even dogs (they can't be promoted, but they count against the number of troops).

All vanilla rank stuff also applies to X-Piratez, I assume.

Regarding X-Piratez (and OpenXcom mods in general), certain 'Transformation' options are locked behind high ranks, and certain items and actions are more effective the higher the rank (ex: White Admiral outfit and the humanist weapons).

AFAIK, everyone shares the hierarchy under-the-hood.

So strategically I can't spam peasants, even if their salary is low, Gals will be promoted to Boss Gals which will increase  spendings?

Well, you could try to get a peasant to become the boss instead...

But in my experience, these expenses aren't very important.
