The Planetside 2 PC servers will be coming down at 6am (Pacific) / 14:00 (UTC) for a game update. Estimated downtime is 3 hours.


Zone Server Performance Fixes


Darkstar, Havoc, and Sigma armors are now available for purchase on individual classes

Medical Kits and Restoration Kits

Both now have a 0.5sec. cooldown between uses; this change forces the player to re-equip the device if they would like to use more than one in succession.

MedKits have also been adjusted to provide a set amount of health instantly, instead of over a short amount of time. The intention behind this change is a speculative fix for MedKits not restoring health during times of high server stress.

Restoration Kits healing duration has also increased from 9sec. to 12sec.
