The Planetside 2 PC servers will be coming down at 6am (Pacific) / 13:00 (UTC) for a brief hotfix. Estimated downtime is 3 hours.


Deep Operative

  • Rank 5 detection sweep now properly triggers while spotted.

Sensor Shield

  • Rank 4 and 5 detection immunity is now continues up to 15m from a detection device, instead of 25m.

Robotics Technician

  • The damage resistance element of this implant now applies to Engineers mounted on their MANA Turrets as well.

Combat Surgeon

  • Reviving an ally with Rank 5 Combat Surgeon will now properly apply small arms resist.
  • For the time being, this stacks with Nanoweave Armor, but will overwrite it as intended in a later update.


Tank Handling

  • Reverted a change to the new tank handling mechanics that affected reverse steering, and maneuvering on certain slopes.

IR Smoke (ANT, Flash, Harasser, Sunderer, Lightning, MBTs)

  • Has been renamed Smoke Screen.
  • Sunderer's Smoke Screen has been replaced with this ability.
  • Now emits smoke for 8 seconds at all ranks.
  • Cooldown from 30/25/20/15 seconds to 40/35/32/30 seconds.
  • Now immediately clears current spot markers for you and and allied vehicles within 30 meters.
  • Now prevents lock-on attempts for 8 seconds for you and allied vehicles within 30 meters.
  • Now masks the vehicle's minimap auto-spot signature for you and allied vehicles within 30 meters.

Dev Note: Allowing IR Smoke to affect nearby vehicles increases its value in teamplay, and gives players additional incentive to choose an ability other than the current go-tos. It also allows for some niche strategies outside of teamplay, ie. disappearing behind cover and clearing your spot markers to help set up a flank or make an escape. The cooldown was increased to reduce spamability, while still remaining reasonably accessible.

Misc. Additions and Adjustments

  • Freedom Thrusters have been disabled.
  • The outdated “Help” button on the Implants screen has been removed.
  • Koltyr should no longer count toward continent rotation, or spawn an additional ghost instance.
