when did they change it so that you need to use proxy chat before you can hear proxy chat every session? I always assumed proxy chat was just dead most of the time but after micspamming yesterday for the first time in a very long time I could hear chatter in proxy around mei was thinking about it just now I put two and two together and hit my proxy chat bind for a split second and immediately could hear people talking to each other in wattersons that i couldnt before
>>606081What game is this? I've never seen any of this shit before in-game.
>>606193planetside 3 (deprecated)was gonna be planetside but with matchmade lobbies, larger focus on movement shooter type gameplay and third person toggle brought back from the dead because???ofc it came during the middle of the br hype so the battle royale mode was the one they tried to hype up and it worked well enough to hook streamers/gaming media for a total of like a week during early testingit was cancelled due to lack of interest from core players and little appeal to wider audiences since as it turns out the entire industry is bloated and a planetside sequel would have been better off sticking to what the franchise was known fora lot of the assets from it ended up being backported to ps2 over the years since, there are still some weapons that havnt made it in and the revamped amerish from which that screenshot was taken will likely never be played on by anyone ever again unless somehow somebody has the files to do a psforever type thing with what was in the closed betaa shame cuz it could have been fun had it made it to launch and not been doa, but that was a pipe dream from the moment it was announced https://youtu.be/Eoz_FWC39BY?t=102 this video is what fills my mind with "what ifs" that will never be answered and for whatever reason that saddens me deeply
never really played light assault before are ns carbines awful or is just me. they handle well enough but that 25 magazine size is terrible
>>606226X75 is meta, Newton is meta. 200 is okay, the starter one is forgettable (only a touch better than the Solstice). NS11 is still fine, Tanto is much better with Short Barrel in the game but not anywhere close to the Newton.
>>606227yeah, the newton is what i want to use. i'm still on the starter and it feels not great
>>606233Starter is arguably the worst one (between that or Tanto), if you want to take the pain away for a bit then beeline to the X75. It's equivalent to the Serpent/VX67 with double SPA.
>>606233The carbines and lmgs are the one thing you're not fucked on as NSO. CB100 works fine on my machine but the lower mag size does get me killed sometimes.
>>606204It did the smart thing with classes which was basically cutting out Heavy and Infiltrator, only integrating a few of their abilities into the remaining three.Reduced to Assault, Medic and Engineer, all of them with jetpacks and more potential flexibility.For the one day I was able to get matches in the Arena beta, I saw a pretty varied number of all three classes, unlike PS2 where it's Heavy Assault: The Game (Guest Starring Infiltrators)".I wish they would make a big paradigm shift for PS2's classes and basically fuse Heavy+Engineer and Light+Medic.It would sort of end up resembling PS1 in a way - Heavygineer being the Rexo suit with the extra defenses and huge inventory, Light Medic being the Agile Exosuit (and jetpacks being super effective for the guy who needs to get to fallen allies), and Infiltrator Suit.
what are you doing down there vanu
>>606316>XP farmersAll in surprised by is that there isn't any for NC or TR too.
>>606252that pmg-100 smg looks kinda sick though
>>606480It's a serviceable SMG, not amazing, not terrible. I quite like it and how it sounds.
>>606480The 100 is not bad, but the 3XB is the NSO SMG.Pretends to be a burst gun, but it's really full auto with a slightly longer firetime on every third shot.Every other NSO gun seems like a crippled version of another faction's weapon, but the 3XB is like the NC Cyclone with proper tradeoffs instead. It may not have 167 point blank damage, but a bigger mag, faster reload, and that unique full-auto-burst that makes it effortless to control made it my favorite SMG.
kinda liking the cb-200 though. being able to three shot someone in the head from 20m away is sexy
>>606539How's the 200?
>>606226Unironically the best NS carbine is the NS-7 PDW

>>606934no, but everything i joined that started here is or will be filled with annoying retards
>>606941I mean there's one other common factor between them...
>>606903No we fucking don't, fuck off fag
They should just scrap Oshur and whatever water vehicle retardation they're attempting to come up with. What a colossal waste of time.
>>606903>half the memebers are altslol, lmao even
>>606925I just logged off because of it, I can't figure out anything to do, every fight I go to is miserable and some lagwizard piece of shit just triple tapped me with a newton so fuck this shit i'm out>tfw Esamir and Indar lag nowI guess I get to wait until Amerish or Hossin open up, fucking yay
>>606762PMG-200 is okay, feels closest to a knockoff of the NC Blitz, better long range damage but a fucking tiny magazine. Too small that even its fast reload doesn't save it.You might be better off with the NS-7's even better long range damage, slightly better recoil and more respectable mag size at the cost of a slightly slower ROF.
>>606316literal chinese botsapparently there's a market for pre-certed accountswebm related, should've used C4 here instead.
>>607098Or an impulse grenade. Send them flying away from each other so they won't get resupply XP and it would probably take the guy extra time to notice his bots are offset.
>>607120There's another group of padders on VS Connery right now. Gonna fuck with them.
What is the COOLEST SOUNDING infantry weapon in PS2? I wanna listen to gun ASMR while blasting fools
Am I using it wrong or is Response Jacket pretty useless? The only time it even triggers is when I'm between ally vehicles repairing stuff.>>607193Punisher
forify should give you hs immunity(not equippable on infil)
What the heck even is this game. I log in and it's a blast like>die>revived>kill>die>revived>kill, kill, kill>die>respawn>cap pointin the span of 15 minutes, then after that it's dead for 30 minutes, no action. Do I just need to keep redeploying to different parts of the map or do I need to join a "party" or whatever they're called?
>>607226yeah, a major part of this game is finding and redeploying to good fights. look for even fights with 12+ on each side, with you either as the defender or with a sunderer that's close to/in a building (lest you get farmed by bombers.)
faction specific hybrid rifles
>>607212Resist heavies with Naginatas will love this
>>607210It's a fine benefit but it's in a slot with too much competition.
>>606081Reminder that they will flood Indar by the end of this year.
>>607288You ever just ruin a continent?
if i buy asp if i'm not br 100 yet, will it unlock instantly upon hitting 100? can i even buy it? the button looks like i just need the certs
>>607310cant buy until 100, membership or otherwise
>>607310Membership saves you the cert cost, but not the BR100 requirement
>>607288I hope so. Fuck Indar. Flood the entire desert. I haven't seen a single fight push up further north than Quartz Ridge or Howling Pass in months, besides occasionally tickling Helios.Make a bunch of sealabs, and unearth the BFR that used to be hidden where NS Refinery is nowAnd fuck Esamir, turn the entire northeast half green and put some water in those rivers again.And fuck Amerish, turn one of those mountains into a volcano.And fuck Oshur. Add some more floating and underwater bases, and stick some gravity pads at the bottom of the Tridents.And fuck Hossin. Fuck Hossin.
well connery ruined emerald. it's nothing but no life losers on tr all the time that massively out pop everyone. they are shrimp dicks too and always refuse to attack but will send 2:1 when defending
>>607384but muh fight don't kill (my) sundurrhurrs i need to farm spawn xp!
miss my clab bros
hey they're unfucking itfucking stupid dropdown burger menus
>>607407Thank GodI can't believe they hid fucking nanites of all things
>>607407now they just need to make the redeploy map functional and the ui is finebases in the middle of your territory appearing to be capped by no one, pop % indicator being straight up wrong, spawns appearing and disappearing(i think that's on the dumb new/old respawn system) and worst of all the vehicle quick spawn does not work. sometimes you can spam the button all you want and it just doesn't deploy you because the terminal's inactive and it doesn't tell you, sometimes it says the terminal is hacked or broken but when you go fix it it's fine
>>607384it’s crazy how much emerald TR sucks ass now. motherfuckers refuse to take fights below 70% pop which means that that every fight as them is either:>bombing some poor bastard’s spawn room and falling asleep since you outnumber them 3:1>getting YOUR spawnroom bombed because, as it turns out, dumping all of your numbers in one hex is a terrible strategythank god i’m a robofag so i can just relog if the game tries to put me on r*d
>>607458Unholy AoDR P1GS alliance does thatProbably why the red 00s are so active right now, just to balance it out
>>607467TR needs more sweatfits to balance the ecosystem. 00 is a pretty fun scrap (dare i say it the only fun TR fight) but shooting at the same 24 or so heavies is getting a bit boring
>>607477if I could persuade our outfit lead to do something other than join NC and immediately valk drop behind the nearest SKL or VKTZ platoon, I would
Its motherfucking friday.Lets pick a server/faction and play.

i want a new gunpromise or bishop
>>607865bishoppromise is just a lame em1
>>607458What? This is like every faction, though NC at least attempts fights at any population %.>TR and NC form huge zergs that plow through the map due to overpop>VS will leave any fight that goes lower than 75% popOverpop is basically the entire game, can't have a good 50/50 fight anymore.
>>607880let's see how i like it>>607904already have it
>make NSO character>most of these starter guns suck balls>save up for NS-7>all is fine now
>>607921Your starter LMG is meta, X75 is meta, Harbinger is meta, starter AR is *okay* but Kappa and Kuwa help here. It's really not as bad as people say for infantry players. Vehicle fags however get to suck cock lmfao, fuck em.
>>607865Bishop is a beastPromise feels lacking in CQC but it's great at midrange
ES AMRs just hit the test server:https://www.planetside2.com/patch-notes/may-13-pts-update
>TR has a mix of medics, engies, and maxes, few heavies and light assaults in there>NC has one max (me), one engie who didn't want to die, one medic with a level 1 tool, one boltnigger, and everyone else is a heavy>faggots immediately start bitching about TR overpop like that's the reason we couldnt defend the base
>>608015>play VS>have an angry horde of medics behind my back at all timesyep... living the dream
hope you guys have been enjoying emerald TR recently, a big fps streamer decided to join in on the fun and his 15k viewers are rolling tr with him
>>608012>VS seems to get the best anti infantry onewhat did I expect
>>608037VS has the Yumi pre-charge in exchange for the NC piercing meme. Unless it's a literal fucking plasma BLADE with a wide hitbox, it's easily the worst one. Meanwhile, NC gets a dedicated infantry anti-air option that requires no lock-on, just point and click. Better than Lancer and less reloading.
>>608030fuck summit, watch /ourethnonationalist/ instead
>>608012>DAGR-81 Better ancillary stats than the Archer, will be better at plinking vehicles at a distance, but no one-shot headshot potential.Another weapon ideal for sitting on a fucking hill next to Prowlers and not taking any ground.Amazing. Boring.>VX4-3 Slicer Sniper with Piercing ammo and better stats than the Archer in almost every regard.The blade is Amaterasu tier in size, but it penetrates infantry and can get multiple headshot kills with one shot.Its long range damage is way higher, so it'll fuck up armor even harder and the headshot distance is slightly better.This is a monster weapon and a straight upgrade. Yet another thing that will let VS dominate actually capturing bases.>LA60 MastheadFlak powerful enough to burn an ESF with four shots and a generous proxy radius.Still just as good against infantry (massive headshot range advantage over the others), slightly weaker when sustaining fire on armor because of the worse 1.8 sec rechamber, but much better ranged damage so it will ultimately outdamage the Archer with sustained fire.Good thing NC have almost no engineers or else they'd completely dominate the skies.>NE-36 Linecutter"Balanced" (worse) Archer but it applies like two seconds of Havoc. Could actually be a gamechanger because it makes applying Havoc persistently a possibility, useful for fucking up deployed Sunderers and threatening armor in open field stalemates where every vehicle has an engineer up their ass.All 6x zoom or higher only.
>>608012>VS get piercing+area damage against infantry with a nominal downside>NC get a cool niche use against air>NSO get anti-max specialisation>TR get...magazine size and fire rate and nothing at all interestingIt's not even a question of balance, it's just kind of boring.>>608030Is that why TR is running huge fuckoff airballs?
whoa mommaengi skyknight hunting squads when
the boolets totally do the striker homing thing btw
>>608121>fucking up deployed Sunderers and threatening armordoesnt apply to vehicles, only deployables and max units
>Give TR semi auto>NSO haywire ammo now works on vehicles but only for 2 secThere, fixed
>Skeeter on test server from like 200m away spinning in circles>Nearly every Meathead shot hits him
>>608056> NC gets a dedicated infantry anti-air option that requires no lock-on, just point and click. Better than Lancer and less reloading.So, a Striker? Finally NC will have ANY handheld anti air.
>>608121>havoc doesn't work on vehicles>nso gets the worst one yet againin all my time as archer engie the thing i was shooting at the least was maxes>>608012also nso doesnt get an ae gun because lolenot like im spending money on this shit anymore
>>608148Striker ain't got shit on the Meathead. This thing is a handheld Skyguard that dumps 9x damage in a single shot.
>>608133Two Engineers can make a Mosquito fuck off on the spot, for free, easily. It's insane that it's NC exclusive. TR has Striker and VS has Lancer but those 1) require HA, 2) aren't as good and 3) don't kill on headshot. NSO gets nothing. I'm willing to make an NC lad to abuse this if I can get two more dudes.
>>608192My a2g ptsd has died down a little since there are a lot less ground pounders lately, but I'm sure as fuck hyped to see this in action
>>608121>This is a monster weapon and a straight upgrade>delay fire>Yumi sniper>upgrade Retard.
>>6082311.2 second rechamber0.2 second charge upretard
>>608012>NC gets even better FlakHoly fuck I am never flying again near those shits jesus christ. It's like they want me to transfer over.
Survivalist should be removed.
Took a screenshot to commemorate my amazing MAX farm the other day and I noticed my cause of death just nowI understand if I got last hitted by a friendly running away on low HP but isn't this contribution a bit too high???Did I interrupt his farming or something?
>>608238Why anon, it's a pretty inoffensive buff
>>608124I'm actually confused by the design decisions for the DAGR-81.>Bolt action>1.2 rechamber, 8 round mag, 600m/s velocity, 4 second reload (every Empire has a bolt action with similar stats to these)>Scout rifle-tier damage>only saving grace is that it MIGHT have a higher headshot multiplier and/or AV damage than the other AMRs, but its damage dropoff is so bad that it doesn't matter>x6 scope with swayIts not only boring, but it makes no sense in any way.
>>608238it just replaces shield capacitor, and the HP regen got nerfed hardit's a good implant but like most it won't save your ass always
>>608402>it's a good implant but like most it won't save your ass alwaysnah it's pretty great with a heavy and adrenaline shield. when your shield is up getting hit doesn't remove the speed buff for losing shields. it definitely allows me to escape dumb situations
>>608402>>608374Why does it do so many things?Why does the speed buff linger after taking damage (despite what the implant itself says)?The speed alone is busted and is often a get out of jail free card for overextending retards.
>>608421objectively it probably is a bit overloaded
>>608142>Give the TR AMR no damage falloff over distance.>Its damage is already lower than pretty much every AMR and sniper rifle already, just a touch above the Dragoon, a fucking scout rifle.
>>608152Imagine if it worked on minecraft forts, that'd be worth it for me.
should be able to equip more or fewer implants based on power/raritylike a total capacity of 7 or so, with Common costing 1, Uncommon & Class costing 2, Rare 3 and Exceptional 4 Let a dude have a bunch of commons equipped at the same time, give all the seldom used lesser ones some love to fill out a spare implant point
>g15 errorthese niggers i hope i get perma banned for "toxicity" fucking nigger retard faggots fuck you eat shit and die
death to gaybreak studios death to wrelINSULLAH
>"In addition to a balanced magazine, reload, and damage, this anti-materiel rifle can also prevent MAX units and infantry deployables from receiving repairs.">faster rechamber than the Archer>larger mag and reserve ammo than the Archer>faster reload speed than the Archer>more velocity than the Archer>min and max damage ranges are double compared to the Archer>only downsides are 25 less max damage and a default x6 scope>also the havoc effect is an attachment that increases rechamber time by 0.15 secondsSo if I'm reading right, did NSO straight up get a better Archer? Or is there some kind of hidden stat that's lower?
>>608421>Why does the speed buff linger after taking damage (despite what the implant itself says)?It used to, but this game's dollar store servers don't remove buffs on time anymore>>608443This is unbelievably retarded considering all the meta implants are common/uncommon
>>608463Being stuck with a x6 might be an inconvenience if you're a cqc boltfagging. Can't get on to try it for myself, but I bet there is something shit about the rifle considering it's NSO.What I really want to know is why the fuck the Vanu AM rifle is a delay fire and why bother giving it the Amaterasu blade projectile if it's just a small bullet anyway.
>>608443i thought a cool exceptional idea would just give 2 extra slots for effectively 3 totalreasonable drawback would be forcing the 2 extra slots to work at a lower rank, like 3 or 4 tops, and you cannot slot other exceptional in it
>>608463Yeah the noise is 800db, audible from every faction's warpgate, and blows yours ears out every shot like every other NSO gun.
>20 min que
>unstable warpgates>hossin >no VS sundis close to nasons >tr keep blowing up the sundi blue berries who keep driving right up to prowlers with 2 crew membersman i hate low pop hours and I hate pubbies
>>608686I've stopped letting VS have any fun, every time its low pop nasons those faggots always cap the midpoint too
>>608691i just wanna get kills for my guns
>>608686fuck ur truck
>>607923LMG-100 is pretty great like you said but I absolutely could not stand the AR- and especially the CB-100. Couple of the most anemic weapons I've ever used in planetside, NS-7 PDW fills in the gaps greatly as it does on my other characters. I can't speak for the sniper rifle either as I really never use snipers on infil
>>608876the mako works, but its pretty weird to not have any straight pull option at all, though you can play engi for that now
>>608813its no me that was driving right up to 2 man prowler groups, but fucking braindead shitters

>>609250You know theres a lot of free camos right
>>609288There's literally only two.
>>609290There were literally +3 you could buy during oshur campaign, not including directive camos and your faction one.
>>609186Planetside by nature coddles people who don't want to believe they're playing an FPS by letting them do other dumb shit until they get killed.
i don't understand why people complain about air>pull a valk>in the animation of it spawning in i take half my health from a skyguard i can barely seei seriously don't understand
>>609358peoples are brain dead and prefer wasting nanites than trying playing the game
>>609358The only shit thing is double galaxies with repair modules, actually unkillable without significant coordination
>>609290Besides the Oshur shit that the other anon said, I'm pretty sure there's three: the single fucking camo you unlock from your battle rank, the outfit camo, and burlap from A7.
>>609358Air to air (A2A) is extremely difficult and takes thousands of hours. There's no way to kill a skyknight with rocket pods without organising multiple players to go kill them if you're not as good as them, in contrast to infantry, where there's more randomness and more you can do to experiment. If you DO manage to kill skyknights but it's with a weapon that's against their bullshit bushido code (like coyotes) they'll @ their faggot discord friends and follow you around the map A2Ging you. Thus, most players only use G2A weapons against air.G2A is boring. With G2A weapons it's easy to make air fuck off but hard to get kills, so every G2A weapon is a deterrent and is boring + unrewarding to play. The only satisfying G2A weapons are the decimator and tank shells, which is totally stupid because neither is intended to be G2A.Air also hates the current state of G2A because it's both overpowered and underpowered. A skyguard can fight off about four players worth of air, if it's smart. G2A is very good at being annoying and very bad at getting any kills. Everyone hates it.
valk should have a side gun
>>609358Its moreso Libs that everyone complains about. Tanky, fast, and with anti-everything weapons makes them incredibly oppressive. Thankfully, the AA turrets in certain bases absolutely fucking shred Libs and Gals, though I'm not sure why more bases don't have AA turrets.
>>609288yes but no free indar camo>>609358they don't complain about the concept of air units, they complain about the fact that it's kill or die with no fighting chance when it comes to ground-air combat, unlike air-air or ground-ground. the infantry blob has no chance against the banshee farmer, the banshee farmer has no chance against my ranger ant, my ranger ant has no chance against a dalton lib. your valk has no chance against a skyguard. that's not that fun to play
>>609466Just checked, it's actually Oshur sand camo
who ever designed oshur needs to fuck off and never work on video games again. what a total subhuman nigger brain faggot retard. this continent is unfathomably terrible
>>609494The bases are all fucking garbage, bridges are awful to fight on, landmasses are way too small to fight on, and water is an absolute pain for anything but air.The only thing I find redeeming about it is the smaller amount of bases with a larger distance between them. Allows there to be more fights that aren't just "One faction overpops the other while shelling their spawn."
>>609455Fuck liberators so much, they need to be toned down and not need 2-3 people to have a chance at actually shooting it down, only for the same faggot(s) to come back in another one because you can have a retarded amount of nanites and no penalty to your gain for losing something as big as a lib.
>>609518Mhm, they need either their tankiness, speed, or firepower toned down. It makes no sense for something to have that much, when any other vehicle would be lucky to have half that.
>Afterburner is no longer passive>Moved to utility slotThere
I don't see the reason to ever use a Valk when Libs do their job (CAS) a million times better with a single person in it.
Heat > Satyr
>>606083She sells seagulls by the sea floor
>>609494There is one base in the bottom right that's just impossible to capture without overwhelming pop. So many fights with NC trying to take it, we had hesh shelling prowlers, a2g banshee niggers, libs and equal numbers. Nothing helps
>>609494Get better taste, it's more enjoyable than indar or amerish by a fucking mile. It's the only continent I don't autolog from anymore.
>>609494good:>tridents>larger distance between bases>more room for interesting construction>generally difficult for fags to camp spawn with vehiclesbad:>80% of bases are either interlinks or tridents>interlinks in general>lack of interesting sea combat means half the map is useless and flanking is difficult>comically long bridges that force boring vehicle stalemates>seabases might as well not exist because, again, sea combat is terrible>fags building bases on tiny islands to OS withoshur is pretty cool but feels like it was made for the wrong game
>>609584Interlinks and Tridents can fuck off too. What the fuck was DBG thinking, designing them to be intentional spawnpoint farms.
it's not even prime time and emerald is unplayable. what do these people even do with the money they make
>>609657>commissioner blast an infil in the skull point blank>nothing happens>do it again>nothing happens>friendly medic walks by and shoots himwhat... the... fuck...he didn't have spawn protection either was just chilling inside a room afkalso infinite jetpacks lulIt's only Windar and Depressamir from what I can tell that get the really nasty lag spikes
>>609591nice b8 m8, if not what do you play to enjoy it? Infantry isn't fun, vehicles aren't fun, air? Minecraft?
>>609602containment facilities can fuck off to while we're at it
I like this game as a relaxing game. There's something nice about walking around an unkown planet knowing there's war going on around you. My fav moments are finding enemy players in random locations where they never expect to encounter an enemy.
>>609703Eh, I think containment facilities are better than tridents and interlinks. Their main problem is just being damn confusing to navigate sometimes (and fucking sniper peekholes at cap points are cancer), but they at least don't suffer the problem of incredibly farmable spawns.
>>609677Large armor battles/open field infantry/Air. Most of oshur's bases can fuck right off but it's the continent with the most fights in between bases and the least redeploy-side/24-48 sweatfit hard hold faggotry. Combined arms field battles and styling on sweats and infil-tards alike with the archer are the only fun I get out of the game anymore
i want to remind you that it is absolutely insane that recursion somehow got soe to whitelist the recursion tracker where the overlay functions exactly like an esp would. there is literally nothing stopping the people who developed recursion from making a completely undetectable esp
>>609762Why would you bother when ESP is literally built into the game though
>dump an entire extended ranger mag into a galaxy>doesn't even smoke>it flies towards me and lightly taps my ant with the tip of its wing>instantly explode
>>609677Honestly it's the only place where construction can really shine (despite being a really flawed system in and of itself. it has plenty of merits). that and like the others in the thread have said, it's the only continent that really disincentivizes redeployside and encourages big open field combined arms fights. the most fun I've had recently playing is holding my own player made base off from the VS at the Bridge between Dekat and Solstice. had it built in such a way that friendly vehicles could funnel through a gate shield walling off the bridge, but infantry were basically walking into a meat grinder of hesh shells and autoturret fire. kept flailing cloaked sundys on the bridge, too. naturally we lost it because nobody knows how to push, but still.
>>609819I love the bridges because I drifter LA underneath them and pop up to C4 whatever happens to be nearby. God I wish C4 wasn't so expensive.>1 resupply is worth an entire Lightning pull>2 resupplies is a vanguard
what do I get? I tried out the Kuwa and its...OK, I guess. outclassed by the torq-9 in every way, but whatev.
>>609840shortbow if you play engi, better then archer for infantry cqc and next patch its getting buffed furtherviscount is insane with nightmare 5
>>609840cant equip torq on heavy though
>>609840Kappa's pretty okayYawara is nice if you like the Pilot but not the burst partHavocs are a fucking joke even if you're an airnig
>>609455There's literally nothing wrong with liberators and you can ream their libussies by pulling an ESF with tomcats or havocs and learning to:>get into hover mode>hold space bar>rotate slowly to throw off dalton aim>run away if they get too close and chase them if they run (still rotating slightly)>fire lockons at them until they die>run away to hide behind friendly armour if an enemy ESF turns up>retreat for a couple of seconds if they pop flares then go back inIf you're in a platoon and nobody is capable of doing this, do it yourself. It's not hard. Liberators are hard-countered by lockons and wyrms, and daltonfags can't hit you if you move properly. They're the least bad A2G except maybe galaxies.
>>609823I wish it was more expensive
>>609823>1 resupply can kill a lightning>2 resupplies can kill a vanguardwhat's the problem?
>>609913It just makes me question the engineering practices if a brick of boom putty is almost as expensive as a tank
>>609914You're right, it makes me question things when a brick of boom putty can one or twoshot almost anything in the game and almost every class can carry multiple of these bricks. It should be more restricted in addition to its warranted expensive.
>>609919if you take away my max removal spray I will leave planetside and wrel will be sadI hate c4 too, but I hate maxes more than I hate c4, and as a medic main c4 is literally the only way to kill maxes short of small arms or knifing it to death
>>609165>>609200>>609250I like this camo the best because it looks like multicam and performs well like it too
>>609893>liberators flying solo>liberators not immediately hiding behind AA>liberators not taking forever to die even if you do all that properly>daltonId sooner pull a skyguard if all i can do is deterance either way
>>609777That's a good thing, I love Galaxy ramming.
>>609950>flying soloYou can kill a 3/3 lib as a one-man ESF. If you're mad you can't solo a 2/3 lib and an ESF escort, I feel you, but you're going up against three other players at the same time.>liberators hidingYou can usually kill them anyway, if you're on a continent with good cover (e.g. not Oshur). If the crew tries to rep tank, close in and shoot them with your nosegun. Rep tanking is really annoying though, and I agree it should be nerfed.>taking forever to dieThree sets of tomcats and some nosegun isn't forever.
>>609966As in they bring a2a esf escourts during off hours. Shits fucked
>>609971>i should be able to kill a lib and an esf with whatever i want by myselfyeah shits uber fucked
>>609972so people should be able to just farm indefinetly if they can find 2 friends to jerk eachother with?
>>609976the thing is that you are expected to pull two friends out of your ass as well because thats the kind of game this isteam work is op, playing solo is eternal suffering
>>609976>teamwork>IN MY TEAM GAME?!?it's more likely than you think, get a free scan now!
>>610008being in the same vehicle as someone else counts as teamwork nowadays? sounds gay
>>609972>try to pull sunderer>AP lightning is camping the vehicle spawner>counterpull lightning>ap lightning runs away, 30s later a lib from the same clan rolls over and smokes me>see rando pulling a lightning, pull skyguard to cover him>lib + missile esf rapes me while my buddy diesI dunno man, maybe im just a casual but shutting down multiple lanes so ten people can grind out one kill every ten minutes and play cookie clicker with outfit resources seems like it might be a game design issue
>>610040sounds like you're two dudes who aren't communicating in any way, trying to solo push a lane against a coordinated outfit.if you play in off-peak times when there's no population then yes, the game design sucks for small fights and lone armour/air are annoying. if this happened in peak population hours then you got rightfully murdered by coordinated players and you should have joined or run a squad.
>>610054>I play on soltechI'm so sorry. my condolences for what you're going through. I didn't know.
>>610052I play on soltech. What do you want me to do, learn four different languages just to warn some rando that some chinese outfit is shitting up the area and he might as well just go to the meatgrinder at nasons like everyone else?Also, there's no such thing as a peak hours liberator.
>>610056Yeah, its an experience...
I've auraxed the flare, pulsar and orion. Any suggestions on what VS lmg to do next?
i think it would help the servers if hexes behind normal capturable bases were capturable with the difference being the capture behind the lines would only affect the speed of the main capturable hex and allowing more obscure bases be fought over more of the time, kinda like instead of the usual horizonal point of view from warp gate for battles it would also be vertical towards enemy warpgate
>>609080damn he could be anywhere
>>610068Probably the Maw since it's almost an Anchor clone, SVA/Polaris/Ursa are all shit but you might be able to squeeze some fun out of the Polaris hipfire gimmick for a 5th.
>>610087The last thing we need is more reasons for stalkers to fuck around at uncontested points
>>610087Yeah that was fun all the way back in the tech test and launch day when you could capture any base you wanted. No wait.The Low Pop hex lanes make me think that perhaps a return to Adjacent Hex with a few new rules would be more desirable. I remember the number of ways they tried to fuck with Hexes on Indar for years after they gave up the free-for-all capturing they had on launch. They never really changed the rules that much; just the grid space.Just one new rule - any hexes cut off from the owning faction's warpgate immediately shut down. No spawning infantry, no spawning vehicles, and NO CAPTURING.The hex goes out just like during low pop. It stays dark for 15~20 minutes, and until then it's just effectively empty holding ground, a vantage point at best. After time is up, any faction with adjacent territory can go for it, meaning two or three factions could be fighting over the control point where none of them are defenders who get to spawn inside the base.One exception to prevent spearheads from creating intentional chokepoints, if a dark facility is surrounded by one faction's hexes, it is immediately kickstarted and returned to the owning faction. For example if NC were to take Allatum Research > Allatum Broadcast > Seabed > J908, but TR takes the Broadcast hub back (and owns Ceres, Indar Comm and Dahaka), TR immediately gets Seabed and J908 back with a big XP reward for "snapping the spear."It should bring back that kind of favorable small-squad play and desire to spread out to the vacant hexes, while also punishing overextending down a narrow path. Similarly, dark hexes would create pockets that force players to work around them, and it would be more likely that the constantly contested and overplayed facilities would be the ones that get shut down more often, meaning the underused areas should see more play and the map becomes more dynamic. Maybe.
>>610164you write all this bullshit but all they ever needed to do was copy planetside 1
>>610059>i play on soltechpersonal problem, bitch less.

If there is a place you can't then you use an anvil>but it can strafe!Unless at extreme range, you cannot dodge shit with a strafe speed of 6m/s (not factoring time taken to accelerate)
>>610205(You) cannot dodge shit. Other people can.
>>610205I would say that the Magrider's biggest downside is the retarded mouse sensitivity.Rival chassis makes you pretty slippery, just gotta keep moving. i do think it's harder to use/weaker, but i have no clue how i'd buff it without making it overbearing
>>610205hold on you forgot about the chimera
>>610208I've always thought that, since the idea behind the magrider is avoiding direct engagements and utilizing terrain/cover, some kind of ability that adds a small amount of damage over time to attacks could work well. It would incentivize you to minimize exposure time so that the DoT could take full effect, while you would still lose in a direct confrontation against another tank.
>>610222I always found DoTs annoying, but it wouldn't be a terrible idea. Vanu IS the bullshit technology faction so it'd fit them best as well. Should the damage over time be based on hit location, or would it be a flat value independent of rear/side shots? Should Fire Suppression remove it? Should it stack?
>>610222Could always give it extreme projectile drop so you can lob shots like a mortar, so you never even have to leave cover
>>610244I could see something like an additional 10% damage per shot over x seconds. That way it is affected by hit location and still encourages flanking. it should be removed by fire suppression to give it some more utility and reduce frustration of dying to it. Stacking might be overpowered so I would lean against it.Ideally it would be a passive perk like the +1000 HP on vanguard or double shot on prowler, putting it above the vanguard but lower than the prowler in terms of DPS.
>>610222>asymmetrical design where you are intended to lose while using the same piece of equipmentThey're supposed to be sidegrades, not fucking rock paper scissors mate
Masthead >>>> Linecutter >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Slicer = TMR Ripper whatever

emerald vs really turned into a bunch of faggots. where did outfits like ac go? i see so many vs mains all of a sudden jump ship to tr and don't give me this bullshit about weapons getting nerfed. i know god damn well they didn't want to play against recursion so they went tr
>comparing g2a ttk on reddit>lancer first>2 armed burster max second>striker 3rd>masthead 4thbonus, a2g ttk on MAX is lower than masthead's rechamber speed
>>610170>3rd person jackhammer corner humping>mother fucking FLYING vs maxeslet's ummm... not. I do want my Juggernaut back though, and sundy mk2
>>610482>don't give me this bullshit about weapons getting nerfedI think that's what happened though. Anything that isn't the best equipment is unacceptable to the spandex. VS pop dropped hard after the aresenal update. Higby said VS players won't use anything unless it's blatantly overpowered, looks like that still holds true to this day. Beetlejuice getting a nerf was enough to scare away the super hard farmers
>>610482Also Emerald VS spent quite a bit of time headhunting good players from other factions, a lot of them probably just stopped playing VS and went back to their old characters
>>610040>>610054https://youtu.be/GkxX4yMk2ls*blocks you're path*
>>610559i don't remember a single good tr main from years ago
>>610490found it, fuck you for not just posting it yourself
>>610568man how is he so fucking nimble, is that just a scythe thing? My fucking mossie doesn't spin or turn even half that fast
>>610584This is the dumbest fucking video i've ever seen
>>610584what is this video trying to say i don't get it. i don't think i've ever died to a lancer shooting at my esf
>>610556What's wrong with current VS weapons? Their starter weapons are really, really good from my experience. The lower projectile speed isn't even that bad unless you're trying to shoot at 200 meters or tracking an ESF going full speed past you.t. NSOtard
>>610551I have witnessed both of these in the last week alone while playing Planetside 2.>>610585This is an example of somebody who has a fairly above average grasp on flying mechanics being a massive faggot with that skillset.https://youtu.be/Agfyw-QYULA>>610591Lancer is a lot more powerful right now cause of the sound bug forcing most to play with lower sound channels, so if you are flying you cant rely on hearing the charge to know to move it or lose it. It's always been great for AA especially against ground pounders you just have to practice with it to get the timing on the fast projectile down, something that most players would rather not do and just run decememe for infantry 1 hitting or a regular lock on cuz its easier. I fly a fair amount and the lancer has always been the biggest threat to me if even just 1 person is running it cause that 1 persons is gonna be a br400 leetfitter that knows what they are doing and I wont know what hit me.
>>610592there's nothing wrong with them. the orion and battle goose are still top tier. the problem i think is that nc and tr have more interesting variety. the mcg was buffed directly and directly and is a great killing machine, the watchman is god tier if you can aim and the completely unique gauss saw needs no introduction. it feels like vs weapons don't have an identity anymore
>>610597>frogface is larping as a chinoid nownot even surprised desu
>>610599I suppose that's true enough. More of a taste issue here, but I find the vanu guns really boring visually. Most of them have a very similar shape and few distinguishing details. NC and TR get some good variety here and there. I guess NSO also suffers from this issue, but who gives a shit about NSO amirite.
>>610551the amount of times i got deleted by a jackhammer burst was so small it definitely required skill to pull off consistently. it's not like i didn't rape corners with my lasher anyway. the most bullshit thing about the jackhammer was how it raped max suits with ap ammo honestly. vs max suits were probably op but at least required a little coordination since you ideally need an infiltrator to hack a door so you're not standing around outside once you get over the walls
>>610597Yeah that looks more accurate to how my mossie handles, though that long ass airtime while nosed down and still not losing a bunch of altitude is something I haven't quite gotten the hang of.Surprised you lasted that long uninterrupted I die once to A2G and I bring out all the fuck off measures on next respawn.
>>610597Why the hell don't people just shoot at ESFs with their guns? Is it brain damage?
HEY REMEMBER WHEN PLANETSIDE HAD DOORS LMAO
imminent success is all but oshured
How do I git gud?>inb4 play the game, faggotI was hoping more for online guides to understanding all the stats and implants and guns and shit. I figure that I'll pick up on how to play as I play, but won't know what to play until I read it if that makes sense.
>>610660Play the game, faggot.
>>610556>Anything that isn't the best equipment is unacceptable to the spandex.Fucking this. I keep seeing shitters saying that most of the VS arsenal is completely unusable, while TR and NC arsenals are all super viable. Meanwhile, half of the VS and TR weapons are pretty much completely identical, with the only differences being the recoil pattern.
>>610660do you mean a meta recommendation list or just a guide to what shit does?
>>610660>How do I git gud?Unironically play more, you'll get a feel for the bullet travel time/drop as you go. Don't fall into the trap that you're only bad because your gun is bad because the starter shit is pretty good majority of the time.>Don't run into rooms expecting to just skill on 3 people>Headshots matter far too much for ttk so git gud>Stop trying to snapshot ADS from sprint because your cone will still be ridiculously largeapart from that, get a 1/2x red dot and an underbarrel attachment like foregrip/laser and that should carry you gearwise. That's like 120 certs total
>>610686Like a faction by faction tier list of weapons or what equipment to generally run when playing, say, heavy assault. In some sense, I do want to understand what shit does, but that's much more elementary than understanding that shield trumps health, so go for more shield (I'm not saying that, I don't know which is better, it's just an example) or what good sunderer placement is.>>610692Thanks. I have been running a lot less when I'm in a combat zone because the time to get the weapon ready again is noticeably high. The bullet drop/travel time was a bit disappointing the first time I played infiltrator, but It's probably better than hitscan snipers fucking up fights.
>>610712Guns vary wildly between factions but if you want my personal opinions on TR guns I can drop my shitty opinions. Starter guns fill the allrounder niche, and anything beyond that is just specializing into personal tastes or situations.VS has a really shitty starter gun for medic or something idk much about VS.Always want to control your fire, don't just go full hog automatic unless you're right up in nut hugging range or until you get better at feeling your cone of fireFor damage models there's a few breakpoints that all add up to 1000* damage based on number of shots and that's how you should be thinking about it.>200 damage: 5 shots>167: 6 shots>143: 7 shots>125: 8 shotsIf you're up against a Heavy Assault, someone with a personal shield booster, or if you're just slightly out of maximum damage range, add another bullet. *Don't take it as gospel though because there's a LOT of factors which change how much damage someone can absorb.
>>610725>if you want my personal opinions on TR guns I can drop my shitty opinionsGo ahead, I arbitrarily chose TR. If it matters, I mostly play Medic and Heavy Assault
>>610737>MedicIf you can handle burst fire guns, Arbalest is my baby. You will lose very close range fights with it though.TAR is your close range badass with fast ADS and TORQ9 is the meta AR, plus you can stick an underbarrel grenade launcher on it for memes.For HAMSW-R is the meta gun other factions whine aboutWatchman is fun brrrrtHaven't tried the other LMGs to really know much about them but the starter CARV is still pretty good.If you have certs to blow on memes, theres the T7 chaingun on heavy that will get you killed frequently trying to use it but its oh so funny and also the best gun for chewing up modules in people's minecraft forts.
>>610725>VS has a really shitty starter gun for medic or something idk much about VS.You’re thinking of the NSO starter, VS’s default assault rifle is actually rather nice.
>>610806Pulsar is hot garbage, mate. They both suck.
>>610808Kills on my machine
>>610744>TORQ9 is metaYou're just plain wrong. The TAR is a better version of the MSW-R, which is the best MG the TR has. If you can't get the TAR to work for you other than hipfiring, you're bad. Also, the T1B is as accurate as the TORQ9 without the shitty 125 damage model>t. have auraxed all TR ARs
>>610829the tar is an assault rifle you stupid retard what are you even talking about? the torq9 is also insane if you can hit heads with that ridiculous fire rate and consistent ttk that removes damage drop off with impact ammo. that being said if you're actually good at the game the trv is the undisputed god gun
>>610834>What is reading comprehensionNothing I typed says TAR is an MG>TRV is undisputed god gun.You have confirmed you are trash. TRV is garbage because of it's abyssmal reload speed.I bet you don't even realize how close 10 meters is in this game either.>Ah jeez what happened? Why can't I efficiently kill this guy on the other side of the room with my 125 meme gun?
>>610860the fact that you think auraxing weapons makes you authority proves your shit. post your stats, you won't. if you want to appeal to authority is the only way you're going to be able to do it otherwise shut the fuck up
>>610874Get fukd retard
>>610616"not my problem"
>>610878you are absolutely terrible. 45 shots per kill on the trv and torq9 jesus christ. that means, on average, you empty your entire magazine and don't get a single kill. holy guac
>>610895>he didn't post his stats
>>610895>>610874>>610834>>610744Now I know why Emerald TR is such dogshit Jesus Christ
>i caused an autism slapfight between two autists for suggesting the torq was statistically a meta pickI hope you're happy, random newbie anon
>>610906I'm not happy, but I'm not unhappy either. But I tried the Arbalest and liked it enough so I don't know if I'll try the TORQ or the TAR for a while, at least not until I get enough certs

>>610170They copied Planetside 1 and it led to the shit we have now. Lattices were jerked off over because "PS1 did it" and now every fucking map is a fight over the same three or four facilities until the end of the Alert because the Lattice is fucking gay.The Adjacent Hex is a superior concept for having a more fluid frontline and reducing zergs clumping together on a select few chokepoints, but the shortsighted, limited rules they used back then weren't comprehensive enough; they were too busy fucking with the goofy hex layout around Hvar.The gadgets and options we have now for getting players where they need/want to be would work much better with some of the earliest ideas the game had. After all, it's been almost ten years, the hostile negative reaction to the Galaxy having an AMS in 2012 is seemingly forgotten. We now have a Galaxy with an AMS and a big overshield when deployed and nobody objects because more considerate rules are in place.

why am i supposed to care about the masthead. a2g farmers can go fuck themselves. anti infantry weapons on air and armor is by far the most imbalanced and obscene thing they have done in planetside 2. the only question is how do we get mastheads to the other factions
>>612414It'll make NC liberators more common because the crew can land, get out, and BTFO an A2A ESF that's going after them.
>>612398DIG on miller
Did they change the alert reward system on NSO? I remember getting the rewards for the side I played most on, but now I got put on a different faction and received nothing at the end for daring to log out for half an hour.
>>612419i've never seen esfs target liberators before. esfags are either farming with a2g or at the top of the skybox looking for fag duels
>>612434I've started ESFing just to delete ground farmers and Libs, but the latter is harder to deal with when the dalton exists.

>>612446The most fun I had in a dervish was blasting overconfident but unskilled ESFags with the XAT top gun. You can do some ok damage to armor and piss off every other flyer in the game.Fuck flying those things otherwise, they are hilariously bad at nearly everything.

>>610744I tried the MSW-R for a bit. I honestly can't tell why it is meta. It feels very similar to the default TR HA weapon. Maybe I'm using it wrong.
>>612822It's funny when you make a MAX shit itself because of havoc, but otherwise stick to the archer.
>>612834Most meta guns are literally just statistical bests on otherwise normal guns no matter how small. Anything you do on the CARV you'll do slightly better on the MSW.

YES! YES!infantry seems to remove everything, if you want doritos only type"/enable_scaleform_fonts true"This is a huge change for me, I hate seeing A point
I bought the new VS AM rifle and tried it out in a battle. Turns out I just can't deal with that delay. Targets I could've easily hit with my archer were now very hard to impossible. No noticeable bladelike "wideness" of the projectile. I worry that the new NC rifle will be far too strong. Haven't had to face it yet, but the stats sure make it seem that way. Especially the flak feature is something I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being removed.
lmao what were they thinking with the mastheadthis shit is hilarious
Will someone please think of the poor ESF players? How are they supposed to farm KDR and certs if they can only kill 5 infantry plebs I mean players before they are shot down? I think masthead should be deleted, ESFs should take less damage from all flak, and the final level of stealth should grant them the same invisibility bubble as the sunderer.
>>612922yeah, agreethey should give it to all factions
>>612949The masthead just pisses me off because "people" don't fucking shoot at ESFs, but now that there's an autoaim retard gun everyone and their dog suddenly start shooting down the airniggers.
Planetside 2 has returned to Civil war era fuckery. I love this.
>>612902>Haven't had to face it yetJust fly a scythe anywhere near NC front lines you'll see dozens immediately.
>>612954>didn't see the esf until it started shooting because lol stealth 4 and im already dead>about to die, will die if i don't get to cover immediately and my damage will ultimately result in nothingi always shoot at esfs, usually just results in me dying faster or more esfs showing up. last night there were two that kept shooting down my valk when i got in the way of them farming infantry (and ignoring the reavers flying around, while said reavers ignored the mosquitoes in favor of farming ground) so i pull an aa sundy to get them to fuck off. kill neither of them, they just have to spend a little less time farming. next thing i know there are six esfs at max range shooting deleting me and my sundy from existence.reminder an esf can kill you before you kill it with masthead if it targets you fast enough.>>612953this but unironically. fuck esfs, every faction should have their masthead.
the only way to "fix" the masthead would be to either limit how many can be equipped in a base or remove it's niche that NC would have access to otherwiseit's current power level is undoubtedly inflated by the raw number of them at every base
i prefer "fixing" esfs by cutting their healthpool in half
>>613017also to follow up the flak detonation in general is similar to the heat based ammo mechanic in that it isnt really possible to balance as any level of "usable" will be too strong but nerfing it to even just a bit too low will regulate it to aurax fodder meme weaponthe issue is the core mechanic itself and not the weapon, however i reckon after the honeymoon period youll probably only see them get busted out against airballs and a2g farmers though not nearly as many at once, since most players only touch engineer for vehicle play and it's a primary weapon best suited on an aspie with shotgun secondary>>613029as a certified rotary retard tm i second this
Wait wtf? I definitely didnt have the platinum mkv suppressed, and once I put in the code I got it. Anyone else get this?
Has anybody tested if flares break the Masthead homing like it does with Strikers? I can never get close enough to attempt it before unironically 6 engineers instagib me
>>612851christ people are bad at medic, how are they averaging the lowest of all classes when they get pinpoint accurate quick reload bullet hoses?
>>613053You can't shoot while you heal and revive.

>>613166>i'm airhammering literally uncontested nowhaha shotgun plane
nobody has been able to give me a solid answer for why the fuck the masthead has proxy lock instead of normal flakit wouldn't be nearly this bad if it was subject to normal flak mechanics

AIRNIGGERS IN THE GRAVE TONIGHT
lets be real the masthead isn't that bad its just everyone and their dog is using it so it seems much worse than it actually isafter a week hardly anyone will be still using it
It's time to nerf the commisioner, underboss, and pilot, boys. How do we do it.
>>6134435 second equip timeif you spam too hard you shoot yourself in the head
>>613443Can we talk about it for a second? What were they thinking? Pilot outclasses most primary weapons, commie has one of the best alphas in game and underboss is still better than any ES sidearms
why can't i hear anything anymore. why do maxs and light assault jump jets not making any sound
>>613455if you play for a long time your sounds will gradually cut out because shit game
>>613493i'm aware. max suits don't make any sounds for me anymore though. it can be two minutes or two hours they don't make sounds
>>613452Its fucking retarded that not only are they the best sidearms, but not a single ES sidearm comes fucking close. At least the Hunter QCX fills a niche that is left unfilled.>>613443Tone down their damage. That's really it. There's no reason they should deal that much more damage than any ES pistol in a single trigger pull.But if that isn't an option? Increase their equip time, maybe worsen their effective range and hipfire.
>>613493suits and lolpods are really bad offenders for me now, no sound at all like the other dude. Libs too... shit is fucked
>>613443Give the revolvers to the NC, the pilot to TR, and give the VS a glow-in-the-dark purple dildo so they can go fuck themselves.
>>612434That's because you've never flown before kek. But keep making judgements on how awful you get farmed on a2g. Fucking smoothbrain lmao
>>613516It's better to think what ES flavored sidearms would bandana guy bring in new patch. Would it be boring like NC=more dmg, TR=more rpm auto, VS=shit or actually something interesting?
>>613532Can't really blame infantry, they're down there playing with a 300m render range and not looking up. They've got about two seconds to watch a lib go from A2Ging them to fleeing to the warpgate, and they probably can't even see the ESF that's 500m up hitting the lib with wyrms.
>>613532Suck on my long mast
>>613538You're the kind of person who would complain about being killed by a fucking Needler as an infantryman
>>613535NC Pistol would be a 350 damage model with no falloff and has a range of 1000 meters
>>613535>NC SidearmDouble Barrel Shotgun, 9000x9 damage within 4m, 9 damage at 5m>TRNovelty miniature mini-mini-mini-chaingun toy that shoots 100 BBs at a high rate but slow projectile speed, dealing 50 damage each>VSArm cannon with heat mechanic, can fire three shots in rapid succession before overheating>NSO3x Burst Pistol with only a 6 round mag and does pretty shit damage but it reloads slightly quicker
yeah, the pilot should be nerfed first and foremost though. i don't understand why this gun exists
>>613555>NSOHey come on now, the Harbinger is pretty good.Decent sidearms is not something they lack.
>>613124i dont see the problem
>>613557I get killed by commie a lot more than by pilot. It feels like all the sweats carry commies, blackhands or emissary out of all things.
>>613535>NC SidearmFirst and only ES revolver like the Commissioner. Vertical recoil out the ass, hits harder than any other, becomes the instant sidearm meta.>VSOne that bizarrely has another faction's trait while having some dumb downside. Something like a burst-fire pistol with huge mag and firerate, but you need to charge it to increase the burst size. Barely usable.>TRZero faction flavour, except maybe just a slightly higher ROF or magsize. Either so niche its useless, or so basic that its decent.>NSOU-300
>>613455feature, started with the ps4 port and has only gotten worse with every patch>>613573the commie/blackhand has up to 900 alpha damage, which appeals to midwit players more than a 200x3 burst
>>613243Why didn't you cancel when they added the fucking crossbow

>>613687They were approaching a contested point, they probably assumed they were getting plinked by shit from in front of them, not behind, and didn't notice most of their health gone immediately in a single shot, at least not in the fraction of a second it took for the second shot to come out.Tunnel vision happens
>>613714>>613687Can confirm, I've seen too many groups just not react to a heavy/ambush shotgunner just tear into them until it's too late.

>>613637unironically a skill issue
>>613656dude everyone and their fucking dog fucking called it, you're not some big-brained guy for calling out basic bitch shit
The apex assault rifles are fucking sexy in both design and sound, imagine what ps2 would look like if we had Doku as the art director in the early days of PS2 instead of that retarded nigger TRay
>>613979Unless it's different to what I heard in the test server yesterday, the VS one's sounds really weak and unimpressive
>Oh PS1 Suppressor >Only DB cashCool
>>613986You're not missing much, it's just an overpirced mkv suppressed clone with no optic choices.
>>613988>no optic choicesDoes that mean it has some shitty iron sights, or did they bother to try and emulate the original game by giving it a sniper scope 2x zoom?
>>614009shitty iron sights
>ads on smgsishygddt
>>613192>pull out medtool>get shotyou clearly don't play medic
>>613436...no it's fucking bad, i'm gonna swap to NC
>>613436So it's kinda true, a single dude with a Masthead is very unlikely to ever beat a vehicle that's actively gunning for him, and it's not a great anti-infantry option (obviously), and if you had a full platoon of guys at every base with Archers or the Archer equivalents they'd probably turn the surrounding area into a no-vehicle zone just the same.The problem is that the Masthead doesn't even need to hit its target, it's complete area denial out to render distance with no damage falloff and not even needing to barely aim, and that's kind of fucking stupid.
It annoys me that in the official Planetside 2 Players stat page, the repair and heal tools are considered guns and calculate into your overall accuracy, with every "shot" being a miss of course,, which completely throws everything off. Were they not, I think I'd have about 30-40% total accuracy instead of 15. In the game itself it's even worse, my accuracy there shows up as 0.000 for some reason.
>>614175the AE versions dont have this tracking, hence why some players have absurd accuracy stats in the other direction
So when are they reverting the spawn changes?

>>614516no one said it's hard to get above a .57 KDR as a medic, only that you cannot shoot with your heal gun which explains why the average (bad) medic has bad KDR. they choose bad times to have their gun out and die.
>6 shots a valk if you shoot above it and let the homing do the restThis is obscene

>>614592yeah it's a dice roll for me sometimes, do you have infantry/vehicle render distances or global?>>614598same bro, same
>>614611I have infantry/vehicle renders
Should I get M18 Rotary for my Mosquito? I only intend to farm infantry/light vehicles with hellfires, but I keep getting shitted on by enemy fighters – reavers in particular. Seriously, what is up with these reavers? I've been playing this game on and off for years and I keep seeing reavers patrol the entire battlefield like they own the place. They are utterly unbalanced having more DPS and speed than other ESFs. Their big hitbox means nothing when these autistics spent thousands of hours practicing dogfights and never miss their targets.
>>614614I prefer the locust, gigantic ammo pool and magazine size means if you can land a bead you can keep it going until they outmaneuver you or die. Plus good for popping minecraft forts if you get bored and want to do that.
>>614618Wish everyone got gud on my side, or even the Vanu side. Tired of the muhfugging reavers bullying everyone, but I guess no one can challenge them.>>614621I did find the locust to be surprisingly pleasing in VR. Not needing to reload will probably give me the edge I need to at least do some damage before I die, and then – who knows? Maybe I'll start winning before long.
>>614614Reavers have high alpha and high DPS but they're not inherently unbalanced in duels. If you get ganked by one they'll wipe out most of your health pool, but getting ganked is a skill issue.
>>614625>Reavers have high alpha and high DPS>but they're not inherently unbalanced in duelsHow so? All I ever read online is people saying the reaver is big and that somehow balances it. I don't see their point since I can fly like a disoriented bat and still get my HP melted in seconds.And which main gun should I get to stand a chance?
>>614612could be the issue, I had to swap to global to use the AV turret properly and drop pods are a vehicle technically too
>>614614just use the needlerthe rotary is more for ganking
>>614629It's all about cross-section. In a duel you're mostly dealing with frontal vertical cross-section, which is big for the reaver, tiny for the scythe, and medium sized for the mosquito. This should mean you can keep your distance by reverse manoeuvring and throw off the reaver's shots by ascending/descending/rotating. If you let them get close they'll ream you a new arsehole.Go play NC for a while and see how it flies. If you get the drop on another ESF you can one-mag it with max ammo, but you're big and vulnerable in duels. It's overpowered, but not by a lot and not in duels.>I don't see their point since I can fly like a disoriented bat and still get my HP melted in seconds.Don't be close to them and don't let them hit you from vulnerable angles. This is especially true if you're in a scythe because you're a gigantic floating target from above and below.>And which main gun should I get to stand a chance?Default is fine. Rotaries are mostly useful for ganking. Make sure you're running max stealth if you buy it (and obviously hover frame+fire suppression for all your loadouts unless you have a good reason not to).
>>614638I see. I probably do get too close because it's one of the ways I escape damage to reload. As soon as I'm out, I boost towards and besides the enemy fighter so he has to turn around, and I do also, and start shooting at the same time again. Problem is that I don't have time to make distance and this maneuver probably isn't good.I'll probably take the locust so I never need to reload in duels again.
Why is there still no ability or deployable that deactivates enemy abilities?
>>613679connery i've got 180-20000 on a good day
>>614642Its called EMP grenade
>>613443No, it's time to buff the other sidearms to a comparable level so that ever switching to your pistol doesn't feel as profoundly stupid as it did before the revolvers were added, especially when longtime players are often running double-primaries from ASP
>>613985fitting since the weapon itself is weak and unimpressive
Is there a way to get a controller working on pc planetside? I don't care about AA (console planetside AA sucks and is better left off anyway) I just don't play on pc much anymore and my mouse aim is starting to leave me also my setup is a lawn chair and a projector screen on a wall which sounds like a joke but it's not and actually an upgrade from my old setup of sitting on an upside down bucket with a small vizio tv on some stacked boxes, so mouse and keyboard is a pain to use especially since I don't have the boxes anymore to put them on. I use steam input for guild wars 2 (the only other pc game I care for) and reckon that will work as a last ditch option but would rather just use the games native input if it has it via launch option or something.
>>613537>they're down there playing with a 300m render range and not looking upThere's the problem that 95% HA shitters are using this class as anti infantry only and rocket launchers they got are only extra tool to score a kill on infantry or max.I'm a Engi main and sometimes i play HA for directives and shit and i fucking frustrated, that in 96+ battles most of the time im the only one who lockon ESF that is fucking 40m above ground.A2g isn't the problem, because it takes only 3 fucking lockons to destroy it and this is massive multiplayer game after all, where there can be more than 100 players from one faction in one place, so normaly you have at least 30 HA, who are not willing to even bother to look up.Those shit devs should take away rocket launcher from HA tards and make a new Anti Tank class who will actually use rocket launchers
Do medics want carbines at all? Im working my way through asp 2 and In just wondering where to put these points. I can see the demand for assault rifles on engi but not the other way. Tr mostly
>>614777Just go the bf2142 route and have the av class also be the pilot/driving class. Now you've fixed 2 problems.
>>614777That's the thing, anon, LOCKONS FUCKING SUCK! There's a lot of videos on how to escape a lock on, most of them is just flying in a straight line on afterburner and rockets never catch up, but the easiest way is to run counter intelligence and shoot the person locking on you. That's why airniggers get so frustrated about flak, IT WORKS! And it makes them fuck off or kills them if they overextend. Andnow that masthead is out and everyone losing their shit about. If it wasn't flak loaded, nobody would fucking care, like nobody cares about sniping esfs with an archer.
>>614783>LOCKONS FUCKING SUCK!Works on my machine>There's a lot of videos on how to escape a lock on, most of them is just flying in a straight line on afterburner and rockets never catch upESF is flying away as fast as possible from me, so i'm ok with that>the easiest way is to run counter intelligence and shoot the person locking on youIf pilot see 3 or 4 lock ons on him, he will fuck off immediately, because he know that 2 rockets he can survive, but not 3.>Andnow that masthead is out and everyone losing their shit aboutBecause a single person using this weapon can be VERY effective against ESF and that's the problem. This is same as LA shitters thinking, that it's unfair, that they can not single handed destroy deployed sunday in team based massive multiplayer game.If you give current rocket launchers to engines who got much bigger vehicle awareness, there would be no a2g around any base.
>>614833>a2g pilot ducks behind a rock as soon as he hears beeping>gets to peek and kill people uncontested for the next 4 seconds because they made the lock timer uniform instead of distance-basedexplain how giving AA rockets to engineer solves this
>>614833> If pilot see 3 or 4 lock ons on him, he will fuck off immediately, because he know that 2 rockets he can survive, but not 3.What is swarm or defector or striker rockets? > Because a single person using this weapon can be VERY effective against ESF and that's the problem.No it's not a problem because by looking at 1v1 TTKs it's worse than other dedicated AA weapons. The only problem with it is the unlimited range which will be fixed very soon (airniggers is a large and very vocal paypig group of planetside) and unskilled youtuber knows it very well.Right now on reddit people seethe at mast because people test it and, being a new weapon, it's very common to see people gather together to plink at air and the conclusion is it's op AF in groups but so are the Striker nests, double Burster MAXes nests, even lockons in groups are deadly. Once the novely wears off we'll won't see it that often, or it would just get nerfed to the ground to lower than 1 arm burster MAX levels and nobody would ever play with it again, same what happened to LA crossbow
>get excited for new AMRs>buy linecutter for my NSO so I can join the legions of archer chads with the fancy new gun>Linecutter can't OHKO with a headshot
>>614928Enjoy your life as a MAX bully and nothing else.
>>614780I really don't see why they would, unless it's the directive carbine, and the TRAC-Shot's impulse launcher isn't something i'd dump an ASP point into. I can see doing it for something like the Newton.
>smg infil kills me from behind and teabags meyes I am mad
>>614780the jaguar and lynx are most likely not bad on a medic
>>614780heavy weapon secondary looks the most fun out of all of them other than LMG engineerthumper's shitty situational uses becomes practical if you can stuff it in your pocket whenever you see said oppritunity
>>614909>explain how giving AA rockets to engineer solves thisEngineer player have more vehicles awareness and they have much more will to engage enemy vehicle. HA players are focused on infantry farming and they won't waste precious time on vehicles, when enemy infantry are around. Those HA tryhards will only engage enemy vehicles when they have to and not because they want to.As i posted before, devs should remove all range anti tank equipment from all classes and give to one class, specially designed to fill that role. Battlefield 2 its a great example of this kind of class.>>614910>What is swarm or defector or striker rockets?Thats the point, now ESF players know that many lock ons are from low damage projectile, because they know thats it's impossible that, that many HA could equip AA launcher/annihilator and fired at once.If only HA starts using proper launchers and not only decimators and start engaging air, only then ESF pilots will have much more trouble with guessing, what projectile exactly are chasing them.>No it's not a problem because by looking at 1v1 TTKs it's worse than other dedicated AA weapons. Agree, but even when this NC AMR get nerfed, we will still see more ESF engagements with this weapon, whan proper anti vehicle launchers from HA.>airniggers is a large and very vocal paypig group of planetsideSame as infishitters and HA mains.>the Striker nests, double Burster MAXes nests, even lockons in groups are deadlyAA nests are deadly i agree, but i'm talking about a2g engagements during battleflow in bases. I mean, i think this is the case about all of this a2g seething.I really don't know why people are whining about a2g. I normally get killed meaby 1 or 2 times as infantry by ESF during a battle in one base, but in same time every third of my death, is from invisible niggers shooting to me from far away, or popping on my face and killing in 0,2s.
Imo the NC AMR isnt that op, they should just buff the others to compensatePerhaps give TR flak ammo on chaingun or some dumb shit too? Something for VS as well
I wish I had khaki cargo pants.
>complaining about ESFsI don't understand? Just shoot them down.
>>615032Fully convert the DAGR into an AV HMG. That'd fit the "sustained damage" idea better than a... fucking sniper rifle.A sniper doesn't even fit their faction flavour anyways.VS, I think the current idea is neat. Maybe something like:>remove the delay, make it bolt action, make the bullet a wide blade>now you can manually charge it to ramp up its damage and velocity; tap firing makes it more like a scout rifle with a higher ROF and closer range, full charge has a lower effective ROF but puts it more at bolt-action sniper levels, and anywhere in between is whatever>its now pretty fucking versatile
>>615097Nobody would want another Phaseshift, anon
>>615120Phaseshift is good
>>615125Yes, but it would be boring if they did another one
>>614783>most of them is just flying in a straight line on afterburner and rockets never catch upCongrats in a single rocket you have made an ESF farmer fuck off for 10-20 seconds straight, potentially longer if they think your area is no longer worth farming if they keep having to jet away every approach.You did it, you did "air deterrance">>614833>If you give current rocket launchers to engines who got much bigger vehicle awareness, there would be no a2g around any base.This is the big thing, engineers are directly involved with vehicles way more than heavies are despite being the anti-vehicle class as advertised.It's like giving infiltrators a jetpack.>>614910>assume the 4 lockons are going to be weak>its not and you dieNever assume the best>masthead isn't a problemYou're right, the problem is VS and TR got literal downgrades while NC has the single useful rifle.
>>615229>It's like giving infiltrators a jetpack.You mean it's like giving light assaults an anti-vehicle launcher as well as C4.Oh wait, we already did that.
>>615242Rockelets are a joke against anything that isn't a hovering esf if you dump the entire drum and land them all, and at that point you'd have been able to do more damage with an annihilator or even a lockon
>>615261double c4+rocklet right click is super good though, can one tap lightnings and sundies
>>615289I honestly use the explosive bolt crossbow secondary for that rather than rockelets because I can get 3 out much faster than a second rockelet mag. Especially good on shield sundies.
>>615289> double c4+rocklet right click is super good though, can one tap lightnings and sundiesNo you can't. Basic sundies require 2c4 and around 9 or 10 rocklets to blow up.t. professional sundie hunter
>>614928it works up to 60 meters which means you'll have to cqc bolt with a 6xget the havoc ammo and extended mag. fuck straight pull bolt you don't need it on that
Question: whats the better kind of gun for SMG infil? Hard hitting slow rof like Gladius? Or high rof like blitz(?) etc.
>>615511cycloneblitz is a light salt wet dreamgladius requires SPA and is great for shooting dicks
>>615535Yeah I've been using the Gladius with optic, hybrid supress, laser, and SPA so far. Bullet velocity is kind of a meme at this distance so it's been working out pretty well. Just wondering if there was anything I was missing. I'll give the cyclone a try.
>>615511cyclone is god like though if you can't aim the 25 round mag might be rough. you could use the extended mag but you want to be hip firing it
>>615511cyclone, put at least two bullet into skull then spin in circles and teabag
What would an NSO specific heavy weapon look like? NSO needs one.
>>614928Oh fuck I'm retarded I see what's been stuffing me. Fucking auxiliary shield capacitor. 1020 damage out to 40m is pretty sweet but if they have ANYTHING that boosts HP I guess I fuckin lose. That's fair, I suppose.
>>616164Heavy Assault Rifle, its just an LMG but more innacurate
>>616168What about an LMG version of the Tengu?
>>616169If anything TR should have had that but that many projectiles that fast might actually kill whats left of the servers.Actually fuck it, give that to NSO and then swap TR's with an actual flamethrower
>>616171Honestly i'd rather have the flamethrower. As a TF2 Pyro main, I'm sad that fire and not needing to aim so good became TR's thing. Unless they also want to give VS a bunch of slowdowns like the vandal and NC a bunch of impulse shit just to make the game AS ANNOYING AS POSSIBLE
>>616173Honestly i'll take anything that breaks up the room blob doorway shit, especially if its a hard counter to lashers.
>>616164very big sword
>>616164>M1: Fires hunter killer drones like pic related>M2: Marks an infantry target to be attacked by the drones. If nobody is marked, drones go after the nearest enemy.basically, i just want a way to automatically kill boltniggers
>>616174>Special ammo that has no headshot multiplier but has a small impulse explosion on hit.
>>616179>Friendly fire enabled
>>616164It needs to be a nearly useless gimmick but it's technically viable
>>616191damn lol this thread looks pretty neat you guys should check it out haha
>>616194could you really not wait 5 more days
>TRfull auto (faster then current auto shotguns) with massive pellet spread and incendiary ammo attachment option that lowers fire rate and makes it semi auto and sets enemy on fire for [X] time (probably less then a second each would need testing though) where X is the number of pellets that connect. drum mag like piston, no slugs, "enhanced" smart choke even tighter then current but .25 ads speed when equipped>NCdouble barrel where each shot can 1 hit but only out to 3 meters, maybe 5 max, with harsh damage drop off, think NSO aurax shotgun but with a higher fire rate and more projectile speed but only 2 shots before reload. no ads but alt-fire dumps both barrels at once for extra damage to maxes and one hit for heavy salts within that 3m range. slugs are there but need alt fire to one hit cuz lower damage. new ammo type that reduces damage by 33% but adds a knock back like fan to user and target shot increased with alt fire>VSless a shotgun and more a lightning gun, but shooting half a dozen bolts of cyan electricity outwards in a very short range, 10 meters max but doing full damage within that. requires 2 shots to kill minimum but decent fire rate (likely in line with current semi auto shotguns) and causes heavy flinch that even battle hardened cant save you from. smart choke-like attachment that lowers # of bolts total and makes them tighter, requires 3 hits while using but 2 hits would do roughly 900 damage with all bolts connecting. ammo is heat based and has roughly 6 shots before overheating but can overheat in pocket like the battlegoose of old. new ammo type is like a slug, removes ads in favor of pinpoint accuracy on 1 bolt that can be held active for up to 3 seconds before overheating the gun. this increases range by 150-175% and has a time to kill should the beam stay connected of 1.25 seconds, .75 with headshot due to an adjusted headshot multiplier. enemies killed by this cannot be revived and dematerialize like the redeploy animation>NSOlol
