    The Planetside 2 PC servers will be coming down at 6am (Pacific) / 14:00 (UTC) for a game update. Estimated downtime is 3 hours.

    Zone Server Performance Fixes

    Darkstar, Havoc, and Sigma armors are now available for purchase on individual classes

    Medical Kits and Restoration Kits
    Both now have a 0.5sec. cooldown between uses; this change forces the player to re-equip the device if they would like to use more than one in succession.

    MedKits have also been adjusted to provide a set amount of health instantly, instead of over a short amount of time. The intention behind this change is a speculative fix for MedKits not restoring health during times of high server stress.

    Restoration Kits healing duration has also increased from 9sec. to 12sec.

    Elysium Spawn Tube Vulnerability
    Elysium Spawn Tube small arms (and similar bullet-based projectiles) resistance from 100% to 92%.
    Elysium Spawn Tube grenade resistance from 100% to 70%.
