    The Planetside 2 PC servers will be coming down at 6am (Pacific) / 13:00 (UTC) for a brief hotfix. Estimated downtime is 2 hours.

    • Meltdown alert duration from 30 minutes to 45 minutes.
    • New continents will now unlock when global population reaches 800 players, up from 600 players. This should reduce the chance of a sparse, third continent opening.

    Vehicles and Infantry
    Flak-based Projectiles
    All flak-based explosives (bursters, skyguard, ranger, G2A lockon missiles, etc,) are being standardized to 5 meter inner blast radius, and 8 meter outer blast radius. We believe the area of effect reductions from the last update may have been causing the low damage output against moving vehicles, as those vehicles weren't able to receive damage notifications quickly enough. We'll keep an eye on the issue and make further adjustments as necessary.

    Additional Flak adjustments
    • Sunderer Ranger indirect max damage from 15 to 20.
    • Skyguard indirect max damage from 20 to 25.

    Bug Fixes
    • Corrected missing Flanker Armor description info.

    Other Small Details
    • Double XP For All Weekend Scheduled for 10/6 - 10/8
    • Up x 10
