SOE has released Game Update 02 for PlanetSide 2. It's a HUGE patch with many changes including the New SMG, New Decals, Camos and Balance Changes. Almost nothing was left untouched in this update with MBTS, Fighers, Bases and more getting some updates. Another one of the massive changes was Dynamic XP. Here is a snippet of the Dynamic XP changes:

  • Added tiered kill xp
  • Killing a player who has been alive for less than 10 seconds and has not earned more than 5 xp will yield a diminished “Spawn Kill” xp reward of 25 xp
  • Killing a player who has been alive for more than 10 seconds, or earned more than 5 xp and less than 1000 xp will yield a normal “Kill” xp reward of 100 xp
  • Killing a player who has earned equal to or more than 1000 xp but less than 2000 xp will yield an enhanced “High Threat Kill” xp reward of 150 xp
  • Killing a player who has earned equal to or more than 2000 xp will yield an enhanced “Extreme Menace Kill” xp reward of 300 xp

The patch comes in at over 4GB in size, check out the full patch notes here on our wiki. Once you have read up head on over and discuss on the update in the forums!

Of all the things we can complain about the size of the download is not one of them.

Most of the reason for the size is the graphics. So, changes to all bases, changes to continents, changes to maps, new weapons, new camo, new animations and sounds .... it's all got to add up.

Most of these changes sound good. I feel that the NC guns in general have improved slightly, or maybe I'm just getting good with the aiming I don't know. Yet to try the improved shotguns out, I hope they aren't so crap now.

Still nothing about increasing the damage of NC ESF guns though, or making sure that Liberators don't one shot kill you.

Other first impressions:

Base layout and Xp changes are very welcome to the game.
VS > TR > NC metagame still remains to a large degree which is unacceptable.
ESFs - no noticeable change whatsoever, Reavers still unloved.

A hotfix is going up for the bugged vehicle weapons as I type (just spreading the word a little ).

For the weapons yes, but the weird FPS lag in bigger battles is still there.
Big battles are almost impossible to play now.

Killed myself jumping on an allied Sundie twice last night (also faceplanted the side and took damage in an attempt to resupply once too), hope they fix that soon.

Re: PlanetSide 2 Game Update 2 02/02/13

Anyone else finding the broken underbarrel grenade launcher kind of fun?

I mean, not in a "I hope they don't fix it" kind of way, because I hope they do reduce the arc somewhat.. But a couple of times last night I found an ammo pack to sit on far from the front lines, and had some fun with what could be considered a makeshift mortar.

I didn't get many hits with it, let alone kills, but it was great fun.
