This time of year, the snow on Esamir brings even more challenge to the battlefield with the return of the enemy Snowmen! Of course, these balls of ice aren’t just there for decoration; they grant XP when you kill them.
On the less snowy continents, you may find Stonemen rather than Snowmen, an equally challenging – and rewarding – festive foe! On all continents, beware the GOLDEN Snowmen! (Though, while you should be aware, don’t be afraid to take them on – there’s XP and a prized piece of loot in it for you if you do!).
In addition to these new foes, you can get your squad in the holiday spirit by picking up special hats and weapons in the Depot. Holiday hats come in ES and NS versions, and weapons include the Icikill Knife and the Snowbal…

Soldier, it’s time your weapon and helmet had an upgrade. Luckily, we’ve put together some new bundles in the Depot to help get you a new look at a good price.
The Ravenous Bundle includes special skinned versions of the NS R3 Swarm, the NS-61 Emissary, and NS-44L Blackhand. It is available in the Depot on PC for 2,999 .
This bundle is a limited time offer, so if you’re sitting around thinking “well, maybe…,” you might just miss your shot. It doesn’t work on the battlefield, and it doesn’t work in the Depot either.
Whether you’re part of the New Conglomerate, the Terran Republic, or the Vanu Sovereignty, there is a bundle of Faven Helmets for you! Each bundle contains seven Faven-made helmets. Here are the three bundles:

The battlefields of Auraxis are changing!
Cortium, a powerful new mineral, has recently been unearthed. This limited resource allows for the near-instantaneous deployment of player-built fortifications. The discovery of Cortium has prompted the deployment of Advanced Nanite Transports (ANTs), which harvest the mineral and convert it into material that can be used in the field.
A new “weapon” has also arrived on the battlefield thanks to the rise of Cortium. Hardline Interference Volume Emitters (HIVEs) generate Victory Points over time, as long as they are fueled by nearby Cortium silos and have an active power core within. Destroying an enemy HIVE will not only halt their ability to generate Victory Points, but also steal the power core wit…Read more >

This wikia has a blogging option, that't interesting.
I'll just make this short and sweet, I want to talk about gaming and behavior. I realize this is a message that most will ignore, but I want to speak up about it anyway. All too often I see so much hate on the internet. The protection and anonymity of a screen and a keyboard is more powerful than I think most of us realize. Without the human connection of a face, a name, or a voice we make assumptions and draw faulty chains of logic that lead to equally faulty conclusions about the people we interact with. As a result it becomes very easy to verbally abuse and mistreat people in a way that may be contrary to your nature.
It is sad to see people thriving off of this kind of behavior, ruthl…Read more >
In the middle of a war, the last thing you need is another enemy. But, this holiday season, that’s exactly what’s upon you. Of course, these enemies are a bit…icier…than ones you may have encountered before. On Essamir, there are Snowmen on the battlefield that grant XP when you kill them! On the less snowy continents, you may find Stonemen waiting to take you on, and on all continents, beware the GOLDEN Snowmen! (Though, while you should be aware, don’t be afraid to take them on – there’s XP and a prized piece of loot in it for you if you do!).

A long time ago there was a soldier named PewdsApple.He fought on Koltyr until he made it to Battle Rank 15.He hated the Terran Rebublic and the Vanu Soverinty.He called the Terrans "Red Heads" and the Vanu "Grapes".He was always a noob with his bad internet and terrible aim but he never had help however.So he made a squad called the New Conglamerate Kill Squad so he can help noobs across Auraxis but only on Esamir,Indar,and Amerish.To this day he only has one gun he bought himself.He will always help the noobs although he is one as well.THE ENDRead more >

As we all know (due to the stellar teachings of our patent-pending POD educational system, used in schools all across the Auraxis colonies!), the Space Pumpkin is an amazing fruit, genetically modified by talented grad students at the accredited* Nanotech University Online. This wonderfruit has literally dozens of proven medical and scientific uses that are beneficial for most humans. Unfortunately due to a recent class-action lawsuit, we are currently unable to discuss these uses, but boy oh boy are they great!

Well, it’s hard to believe, but the launch of PlanetSide 2 on the Playstation 4 is finally upon us! Since we’re going to have a fairly diverse mix of existing beta players, as well as new players, I wanted to post some details on what to expect on launch day and the coming days/weeks.
First, we expect to open the European servers at approximately 4pm (GMT) and the North American servers 1pm (Pacific) on 6/23/15. It is likely that the game will appear in the PSN Store before the servers are unlocked. If this occurs, remain calm, because the game servers will be unavailable. That said, we’re trying to time the server accessibility as closely as possible with the PSN Store update. Existing beta players, you will just need to patch…Read more >

Hello there, Auraxians! For those of you who don't know me, I am GunGood (the name is stupid, I know). I've been playing PlanetSide 2 since January 2014 and I've enjoyed the game a lot. I'm also a contributor to the PlanetSide 2 Wiki. So, I've been thinking about the story aspect to PlanetSide 2 (which there is none), so I've come up with my own solution and would like to share it with the PlanetSide 2 community! I have created a PlanetSide 2 Character Wiki that is similar to the official PlanetSide 2 Wiki. The PlanetSide 2 Character Wiki is based closely off of the CWA Character Wiki (for those who used to play Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures back in the day and know what I'm talking about).

Imperials is a new outfit coming to Planetside 2. The outfit itself it small, we are going to be mainly infantry but we are also wanting to get some people who can operate ground vechiles and some pilots. So if needed we can work in cooperation or as a whole outfit on a area. We will also be trying out spec ops tactics such as quick response and hit and fade.
The outfit is led by Daken---

The PlanetSide 2 Closed Beta for PS4 is starting this month — January 20th, to be exact! The development team has been hard at work refining, optimizing, and creating an amazing console version of PlanetSide 2 on PS4, and we can’t wait to get it into your hands.
We’ll be using this beta period to test our servers, performance, and various other aspects of the game, and we also want you to share constructive feedback on PlanetSide 2. How does the game look and feel? Is navigating through the menus intuitive and utilizing DualShock 4 in the best way? All players in the Closed Beta will have access to our special Beta forums, which will be the primary location for development interaction and feedback.

Grab your AA weaponry because this week’s update is sure to fill the skies with both aspiring pilots and grizzled veterans using all new weaponry on the Liberator
First up is the L24R Spur which allows the pilot to adjust the aim (versus having it fixed forward) is now an option for the Nose Gun providing additional protection. Tailgunners also now have the Hyena Missile launcher which are dumb-fire but lock on if they get close enough to an aircraft.
Ground troops if you aren’t already cursing the rain of death belching from the Belly Gun of a Liberator, the D-75 Duster may get you to start. With 75mm HE shells, the gunner can fire slow and accurate or unload all ten blanketing a small area with fire.

It’s hard to believe but eighteen years ago this month a small community was created, known as The Syndicate. Back in 1996 the world of gaming was very different than it is today. The Internet was connected by dial-up modems, monitors only had 256 colors at most, and high-end graphics cards only had a couple Megabytes on them.
The Syndicate is different than a lot of other guilds. They have spanned numerous communities and games. They are not just a large guild; they hold the Guinness World Record for the longest, continuously operating, online gaming community. They even have their own annual convention called “SyndCon” which has been running for twelve years. They’re deeply passionate and experts about all things gaming.

After the first World Domination Preseason, we took all of your feedback and made some major changes to the rules, scoring and rewards. Today, we're happy to announce the start of PlanetSide 2 World Domination Preseason 2 on Friday, February 7th, 2014 at 12:00 AM PT!! Check out the changes below and prepare for war, Auraxians!
Scoring & Rule Adjustments
- Disabled Difficulty and Top Dog multipliers. This means scores will be far more consistent and predictable throughout the day, and contributions have equal value regardless of time of day or continent population.
- The time between hold points being awarded to the empire has been reduced to 30 minutes (from 60).
- Point values for capture, defense and hold now increase t…

As you may or may not know, we actively track combat data flow. We want to know where players are in the world of Auraxis and what they are doing. We want you to experience massive fights from a defender’s standpoint and an offender’s perspective because we can all agree, being in combat is fun!
While looking through our data regarding AMP Stations, we found that the Freyr AMP Station layout provided players with a more sustained fight – where attackers and defenders were fighting up to the last seconds over the capture points instead of waiting around for the base to be captured.
Using the above information along with other data, we decided to make the following changes to test out how they affect the battle flo…Read more >
Just made an outfit on the sever mattherson(US East). Feel free to comment below if you want to join. I will try to be on as much as possible to decide if you should be accepted into this outfit. Remeber that this outfit is fairly new, so if you are a new player on the Terran Republic on the Mattherson server, this outfit may be right for you. Before entering this outfit you must be put through basic officers training camp (tryouts). Here I will decide wether you are fit enough, even if you aren't you will still be accepted if you are atleast close to my expectations. More news comming shortly.

So, many other users and I have already done some of this, but I want to make it a goal to do this. I want to include a useful description for each weapon in the game that describes it, explains how it handles, and shows what the weapon is best suited for. I don't mean just to use the in-game description, but to explain it in-depth. I haven't used every single weapon in the game, but I know about a lot of them so that I can at least provide a brief description. Thus, I would like everyone with experience and knowledge about a weapon to provide their insight on it. I have something of a rought format, where it will give

b) Suggested Attachments (maybe? It might intrude on the user's own decision)

Ground vehicles are a key component of victory in PlanetSide 2. From the speedy Harasser to the formidable two-person battle tanks, there’s something for every play style and situation. But are you practicing proper vehicle etiquette? Brush up with these handy tips and avoid Auraxian road rage:
Do: Wait your turn to resupply at the Ammo Silo.
Don’t: Try to make the line go faster by tank-mining the guy in front of you.
Do: Park your damaged Harasser by a friendly Engineer; they might repair it for you!
Don’t: Park your damaged Harasser on a friendly Engineer. (Enemy Engineers are totally fair game though.)
Do: Try equipping one of the new vehicle horns to let people know you’re coming through.
Don’t: Think that yelling “BEEP BE…Read more >

So several weeks of surgery have yielded some substantial results!
OMFG: COMING TO TEST IN THE NEXT DAY OR SO!!!
To answer the most painful but obvious question, we are hoping to have Phase 1 of OMFG on Test servers in the next day or so, and Live around the end of the month. I want to make one thing perfectly clear, however. We will NOT put this patch live in a hurry. We want to smooth out any rough edges and get the stability BETTER than Live. Only then we will feel confident in putting it on Live. We encourage you to come to the Test server once this is up, check it out, and provide feedback.
For this phase, we mostly concentrated on these two issues:
- Performance on quad-core and above systems, Intel and AMD, with at least 4G RAM and a medi…
All servers will come down for maintenance at 6:00 AM PDT (3:00 PM CEST) for a hotfix.
