Game Update 07 Released

SOE has released PlanetSide 2 Game Update 07. As with most major Game Updates this one has a vast amount of changes including the new Weapon Information Screens, NS Revolvers, Vehicle and Weapon Balance, New Map and UI changes and the long awaited Camo Preview option.

  • New Weapon Stats are now available! Damage Range, Reload time, and every thing else you need to know about your weapons is now at your fingertips.
  • Want to see how that Desert Scrub will look on your Sunderer or Character? Now you can with our preview feature!
  • Active Heavy Assault Shields and flak armor will no longer stack.
  • Jump Jet audio has been increased in volume.
  • Grenades are now thrown directly at the aim point. The arc has been slightly modified to work with this change.
  • Tanks mines have been increased in size.
  • Removed the forced weapon swap after deploying an object.
  • Lock-on rocket launchers can no longer lock on to turrets.

Above is just a very small snippet from the full patch notes. Check out the full notes on our wiki and of course, hit up the comment thread to discuss during the server downtime.

I am used to play with Blue allies and red enemies UI.

But now on the big map I see the allies in RED. If this is a change it is a BAD change. VERY BAD.

Guess it's a good thing that my colour scheme was already set to faction colours

lol I see NC in Red, TR in Red & VS in Purple on my main map (yes before someone asks the colours are set to show TR in blue & enemies in Red )..... you're very correct Nur it ain't helpful at all.
Needs a hotfix.

Re: GU07 Patch Notes - 4/18/13

On my main map we are purple, nc is blue and tr is red. On my minimap and screen we are green, tr is red and nc is purple. So it is a bit distracting.

The first time I played after the update I took out a few of my own before I realized it. I changed the colors back in the customization settings real quick. Then after that it showed allies in blue again but it still showed vehicles and turrets in red. I took out some poor engineers turret because of this.

I've already made some poor judgments and send squads to wrong locations because of friendly vehicles showing up in red on the map. Extremely annoying.

Re: GU07 Patch Notes - 4/18/13

hey did anyone else notice the new animations for the pistol or bolt action sniper for the TR reload animations? they are much better, and SUPER badass. i like.

although, this patch was fucking buggy, the hotfix will fix the problems i had though (teleporting under the map...)

If anything the bane of my playtime is the NS-44 Commissioner. All it ever took was one or two headshots at my Tier-3 Nanoweave and shields at full strength and I was dead...

That happened almost all night.

You can bet the nerfhammer will come down on them very soon after the initial 'OMG SO OP, MUST BUY' phase has died down and SOE has made a decent amount of $ from it.

I didn't like the change, but I can live with it.

I'm just happy I can back up a Prowler instead of having to stop, turn around and THEN drive off (after I've spun in circles for a good 10 seconds).

You should be happy that your server has so many skilled players. Two headshots with commissioner isn't the easiest to achieve. I have a lot of experience from fps-games and I tried using commissioner as a primary weapon to test it out. It didn't go too well. I think my kd-ratio was around 1 at the time. It's more like "let's have fun" weapon. Try hard players do better with default pistols. Faster rof = more chance to kill. Even vs now that we got a tiny buff to beamer (and manticore). And pistols aren't even used much anyway.

Once the hype goes away, there won't be much situations where you actually are against the new pistols. New weapons are always spammed at first.

Re: GU07 Patch Notes - 4/18/13

I almost never say this, but this Update really was a hit out of the park.

No Optimization issues this time. (except I seem to crash way too often when pulling a Sunderer out of vehicle Terms.... and ONLY a Sundy.... no other vehicles keep causing this crash).

The vehicle stability changes are AWESOME. I don't even think about popping an ESF now when I need to get somewhere fast. The Flash is handling SOOOOO much better now. The previous day I flipped mine over 6 times while driving fairly slow. Yesterday I played half the day before I even found out how the new flipping mechanic even works just b/c the Flash is so much more realistic and controllable now as opposed to the HaraKiri-Kart it used to be.

This coupled together with the previous improvements to climbing slopes by foot has made "getting around" in this game so much more enjoyable now. I'm actually spending more time just exploring mountains and paths and stuff than I am ghost capping now. It's the journey not the destination that's fun... that's exactly how any MMO should be played.


The HA unstacking of abilities was also very needed. Glad they ripped that bandaid off now instead of waiting things festered months from now.

+1 to this.... ...really the only grey cloud in any of this....
I think this thing is BUGGED. I put 4 MAG shot into some LA last night before he slowly turned around and INSTA KILLLED me with the Commissioner. My kneejerk reaction was "is he hacking??" But this was day one, there shouldn't even BE any working hacks day1 after a huge update like this. And I'm pretty sure this guy wasn't MLG pro either. Either the Damage / CollisionHulls are bugged on this new "hand cannon", or SOE just didn't playtest it properly. It's such a P2W "gimme" to the point that I woulda bought one myself on-the-spot if I had enough Station Cash transfered over.

Re: GU07 Patch Notes - 4/18/13

I tested the commissioner out in the field.


I'd rather just use a carbine. The sucker is intended to be the KILL TEH ZOMBIES pistol in the way that the pump-actions are the KILL TEH ZOMBIES shotguns. I find it rather difficult to use effectively in a crowded situation. My recommendation is have it in your #2 slot when you are in the towers using your pump-actions and pull it out when you don't have time to reload the pump.
