How Do Squad Stories Appear?

Despite how it might initially seem, you do not need to use all the Squad members involved in a story in order to unlock it, and you do not need to have all the members in your active squad – but do need to be capable of accessing them, obviously. Squad Stories unlock as soon as one of the members reaches the rank of Corporal and you finish clearing a mission. The only time the latter is relevant is if you get the final recruit for a Squad Story and someone’s already a Corporal. If it isn’t proccing, just try finishing out a random chapter and see if that helps.

As Pavlissimus has helpfully suggested, spending 40 CP on a unit on the first skirmish map is a pretty quick and non-stressful way to go about it. An addition from Benderman24 states that normal missions are twice as effective, so spending 20 CP on one of the earlier maps is more efficient in pretty much every way if you can be bothered to complete the easy objectives.
