Rise of the Phoenix


BWC has had a long illustrious history with Planetside 2. With that being said it was almost time to pull the plug on the game that allowed BWC to grow to prominence. Planetside 2 has a long history being released November 20, 2012 and still continuing to this day. Prior to Planetside 2, BWC was pushing the meta in the original Planetside. There are many reasons that could be

//Incoming transmission for BWC-PS2 Regiment//

Planetside 2 players of BWC, be prepared to improvise, adapt, and overcome once more with a bunch of new changes in the new update. The Critical Mass update will give you all plenty of new tactics to counter, or to carry out yourselves! If you are thinking of joining or returning to the PS2 regiment, well now is the best time to do it. These new additions will definitely pique your interest, so hop on and try out the new stuff with us!

Continent Locking Revamp

With the Critical Mass update comes a major revision of the way continents are fought over and conquered. When one faction has refined enough cortium and controlled enough territory, that faction triggers an alert which signifies the impending domination of a continent. If the triggering faction wins the alert, they will conquer the continent and call in an armada of Bastion Fleet Carriers to rain destruction upon their enemies.

Rewards

The new alert type brings with it a range of possible unlocks that would normally be found in the depot, as well as some unique items that can only be earned from continent locking. Rewards are earned based on how well a faction performed during the alert, and how long a player has participated in that alert.

Successfully locked continents will reward players of the dominating faction a large helping of ISO-4 (the implant currency,) and a random cosmetic or boost. The two opposing factions receive varying amounts of ISO-4 based on which of them held the most territory during the alert. This ISO-4 reward also scales based on the player’s time spent participating in the alert. The more time in the alert, the more ISO-4 received. Lastly, becoming eligible for an item reward also requires players to have spent a certain amount of time in the alert. For most item rewards, a player is required to have participated in at least half of the alert, and certain rare items require even more time participated to become eligible for them.

NSX Daimyo

The new NSX Daimyo sniper rifle carries the headshot kill potential of a bolt-action sniper rifle, with the flexibility of a semi-automatic sniper rifle. Its three round magazine and semi-auto fire allow it to quickly drop multiple targets before reloading. This sniper rifle requires precise aim to make use of, and can be fitted with optics from 4x to 12x, as well as an infrared 6x optic.

Ambusher Jump Jets


-Ambusher Jump Jets have been added to the Light Assault class.
-These jump jets propel the player forward quickly, with limited vertical height.
-Unlike other jump jet types, these are on a cooldown, instead of being more readily available.
-Aerial Combatant's rank 5 benefit now resets the cooldown on Ambusher Jump Jets upon a kill.

Nano-Repair Grenade

-The Nano-Repair Grenade has been added to the Engineer class.
-This grenade creates a field which repairs 50 health per second in an area for 12 seconds.
-The grenade sticks to vehicles, the player can only have one active at any time.

Vehicles, infantry, and the way they interact with one another has received a massive rework with the intention of creating a more enjoyable experience both on foot and in a vehicle, as well as smooth out some of the learning curve required for vehicle play.

Resistances and Armor have been simplified

Through some house cleaning, we’ve reduced the amount of resistance types in the game, eliminating roughly half of them. Part of this change includes creating a new baseline for directional armor values, and tuning weapon damage (and resistances) around those new values. Prior to this update, many weapons had resistance types unique to themselves, and armor values varied wildly from vehicle to vehicle. In many cases, this meant the damage displayed in the loadout screen could not be accurately compared to other weapons that would seemingly fall in the same category. What this means for you is a more accurate loadout screen representation of the capabilities of the weapons you use and unlock.

MBT and Lightning Armor

Main Battle Tanks and Lightnings now receive the same amount of damage from all sides, except from the bottom or behind. This means that remaining mobile is less punishing, as getting shot in the side no longer penalizes you with extra damage. At the same time, successful flanks and sneak attacks on targets from behind will now yield double damage against that target.

Liberator Armor

Like the Valkyrie, the Liberator now has a 50% armor boost when taking damage from below. This buff works in conjunction with a more clear focus on sustained damage over time, instead of burst. Furthermore, all liberator nose guns may now swivel (similar to the spur).

Vehicle handling improvements

Most of the vehicle handling adjustments have already hit live servers, but additional adjustments have been made to Racer and Rival chassis for Lightning, Vanguard, and Prowler. These changes reduce some of the slipperiness that comes from these chassis types, and reduces penalties related to stopping power and brake use.

Rumble Seat Repairs

If there are multiple players in rumble seats, only one of them will be able to repair the vehicle at the same time. This change only impacts the Valkyrie, since it’s currently the only vehicle with multiple rumble seats. Valkyrie’s repair rate from the rumble seat has also been doubled to accommodate the change. This change allows us to comfortably increase the strength of the Valkyrie’s weapons; it is still first and foremost a transport vehicle, but its newfound bite should make using the Valkyrie a bit more desirable overall.


These are only some of the changes that have hit Planetside 2! So come on down and experience the constant warfare with BWC!
