    Connery Server Performance
    A couple of weeks ago, we implemented hardware and network changes to the Connery server, and based on reports, those issues seem to no longer be present. Thanks for bearing with us on all of this. If you see any major slowdowns or hiccups moving forward, please report to CS using this link: https://help.daybreakgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    Gifting
    Mentioned as one of our ambitions in the Roadmap for 2022, item gifting has made its way to PlanetSide 2!
    You can gift to anyone on your friends list by using the "Gift" button found on most items and bundles in the Depot.
    The recipient of your gift can find the item(s) in their notification screen, alongside an optional note.
    This functionality will only be partially available on Test Server, as DBC purchases are restricted in that environment.

    Summer Items
    Add some splash to your arsenal with the throwable Water Balloon, the Soldier Soaker sidearm, and the Mega Soldier Soaker primary!
    New to the Depot: Amphibious Vehicle Cosmetics are now available, alongside the Dive! vehicle horn. This horn plays different sounds above and below water!

    Summer Directives
    This year we'll be running three, separate Summer Directives for two weeks at a time. The Summer 2022 - Beach Head directive begins right when the update goes Live, and will be available through June 29.
    The first weekend of each Summer Directive will yield Double Experience for ALL! Catch the wave this June 17, 18, and 19!

    Aerial Anomalies Return
    The Beach Head Summer Directive heralds the limited-time return of the Aerial Anomalies event.
    Once per continent, an Aerial Anomaly event will kick off that spawns anomalies periodically around the map.
    Aircraft are free for the duration of this event, and will be needed to travel into the Anomaly, gather Tempest, then return it to your faction's buoy.
    Bastion Fleet Carriers also act as drop-off locations for this event, so be sure to use them to change the flow of battle.
