  • My Role in Planetside 2

    I posted this up in my IHS channel too to figure out what people are going to be running for the 73rd, figured id give everyone a heads up on what my focus will be in the game.. My primary focus will be the Reaver over all others, and the rest will be 2ndary...

    Air -
    Vehicle: Reaver
    Role: AA Missiles for escort, or ground rockets to provide strafing runs for ground support.

    Air Escort-
    Prim: Vortex Cannon (fast damage, good for getting a quick burst out to kill with cannon or missile will them off instead)
    2ndary: AA Missile
    Utility: Decoy Flares (need more defense when in the air)
    Defense: Stealth (good for aa to get a lock on you, and also will not show up on enemy radar if u get spotted)
    Performance: Vertical Thrust (helps with defense by making tighter turns at faster speeds, you also move faster)

    Air to Ground Support-
    Prim: M20 Mustang (good all around damage against ground vehicles & infantry, just put a scope on it and youll be set)
    2ndary: Breaker Rockets
    Utility: Scout Radar (help with finding targets on the map for rocket runs and spot infantry for allies on ground)
    Defense: Composite Armor (take more of a punishment from flak and small arms allowing you to shoot more before flying away)
    Performance: Air brake or vert thrust (toss up air brake be good to make a quick stop to fire at a tank, but vert thrust good for getting out of a sticky situation quickly)


    Ground -
    Class: Heavy Assault
    Role: Hawk (AA Missile fire & forget)
    Vehicle (optional): Lightning w/ Skyguard
    Reason: ground forces are able to focus on ground while i focus on air contacts.

    Ground Vehicle: Lightning w/ Skyguard
    Utility: IR Smoke (with stealth and this, lock on missiles would be near impossible to hit me since smoke can be used every 15 seconds if maxed)
    Defense: Stealth (Air contacts would have a hard time to find me, also lock on missiles will take longer to lock on to me as well)
    Performance: Tank Rotation (able to spin faster to take out air contacts with ease)

      think we had one of these threads that got buried somewhere.

          I see my love of vertical thrust has caught on :D
          It matters not what letters or numbers come before my name, I'll always be 1stMIP.

            I must refrain from posting my role in the thread, because honestly I am not sure... it will take a lot of experimenting in beta before I nail down what I am going to pursue post-launch... honestly right now I am struggling with wanting to do it ALL, but certing up is so slow thats not possible. Its not like PR, where you really can be a jack-of-all trades, which is probably a good thing, but frustrating for me since I dont have a lot of time to spend in-game.
            May you be covered in the dust of your Rabbi.

              This.

              I do think you can fit many roles well right now but investing in an infantry role gives you more options. I see the trend getting broken when people invest in vehicles. A tank with AP shells, ATMs, optics, and front armor is thoroughly superior.

              I'm definitely focusing on the ground battle. The air isn't so interesting to me right now.
