View Full Version : Anit-vehicle versus infantry?
Anyone know what sort of blast damage infantry is going to take from anti-vehicle weapons? I don't want this to be a an "everybody grab a rocket" type thing.

It looked pretty weak during E3, people weren't really using AV on infantry.

We did witness a max head shot a light infantry and one shot him with an AV mortar, however that ROF was very very limited compared to chain guns.
What we have seen so far, from my perspective is that direct hits by AV on infantry end in a catastrophic biological failure of the impacted troops. (IE: Tank shells, mortars, pounders)
However, the splash damage by these weapons appears to only deal light damage to infantry.
In my opinion, that's a good route to go, and actually it's quite similar to the original Planetside where, sure you had massive DPS if you landed AV shots on infantry (Comet Maxes on the VS) but you needed to land those shots.

I saw a Max with dual flak bursters take out infantry with headshots but otherwise it took a long time to kill them compared to using a normal gun.

The only instance I remember seeing an anti vehicle weapon killing infantry was a moment where it was a MAX dual wielding what I think were rocket launchers and the main reason ti was effective was because the infantry guy was standing in the middle of two crates and basically had no way to avoid a direct hit.

well unlike planetside 1, you don't really need a av thats useful against both av and ai, as you can use both a av and an ai in the other hand.
