'PlanetSide' Celebrates Its 4th Anniversary

by Rainier on May 22, 2007 @ 3:08 a.m. PDT

To celebrate 4 years of planetary combat, the PlanetSide Anniversary Update introduces a slew of new artillery to the live game. Instituting three New Pistols (one for each empire) and a Missile Launcher with Propelled Explosives, every player can obtain these new weapon types, while an experimental Flamethrower weapon has also been added for those 3 year veterans (based on your character’s creation date).

Below you will find more information about each weapon type, note that we have enabled all weapons to be available to all players from 5/18/07 to 5/25/07 regardless of the limitations.

We want everyone to have the chance to try out the new weapons and participate in the mayhem of the Four Year Anniversary! Enjoy!

  • • PISTOLS - The Spear (NC) / The Stinger (TR) / The Eraser (VS)
  • These Empire specific pistols are designed to be very lethal towards Infantry units but lack a punch in the armor piercing department.
    • The Scorpion uses a range-finder technology to fire 'smart' missiles from long distances.
      If not a 2 year veteran, it may be purchased for 1 certification point if Special Assault has already been learned.
  • • FLAMETHROWER - The Dragon
    • The Dragon is a powerful flamethrower that works best at close ranges, although it is an experimental weapon and may not be accessible at all times in PlanetSide.
      The Dragon is only useable by 3 year veterans (based on your character's creation date) and includes a three minute purchase timer.

Check out a complete list of all the anniversary enhancements!
