All weapons, barring those rewarded from Directives such as the Betelgeuse 54-A and those instead unlocked with A7, can be unlocked with Certification Points or Daybreak Cash, with exception to those that are cosmetic variants of another weapon such as the NS-11AB only being available for purchase with Daybreak Cash.
Weapons can also be tested for free through two different methods; in the VR Training Facility, which offers access to all non-directive weaponry and their attachments for free, or through Weapon Trials that allow free use of a weapon for half an hour every eight hours, though without free access to attachments.
If a weapon is available for use on more than one class, purchasing the weapon (regardless of the currency used) will unlock it for all appropriate classes.
- Main article: Weapon Optics and Attachments
Nearly every weapon in PlanetSide, with few exceptions, has access to at least one attachment. Attachments affect how a gun feels and handles in a variety of ways, such as adding an optic for easier aiming or affecting muzzle velocity and damage fall-off.
There are four different classes of attachment; Optics, Barrel, Rail, and Ammo. Not all guns have access to an attachment in each category, and their effects can vary drastically.

Cosmetically, weapons can be modified through Camouflage and attachments.
Camouflages are primarily available to unlock Daybreak Cash, with a select few unlockable instead through certain directives. They are purely cosmetic, only affecting the paint scheme of whichever gun they are applied to.
Most attachments affect the appearance of the weapon they are attached to, such as a Forward Grip adding a grip to the gun. Attachments do affect the statistics of the weapon, elevating their status far beyond simple cosmetics.
