    Planetside 2 Guide

    What is Planetside 2

    PlanetSide 2 is a revolutionary massive scale first-person shooter where soldiers battle as one in strategic, targeted missions against enemy empires in an all-out planetary war. The game challenges the skill and grit of the most seasoned soldier through intense infantry, air, and ground vehicle gameplay.

    How do I get Planetside 2

    Planetside 2 is a free-to-play game, you can be download it from Steam or from the Planetside 2 website

    How do I play?

    Planetside 2 plays like any First Person Shooter{FPS} game, you will be given the option to play the tutorial at the start. If you choose to skip the tutorial you will then be thrown into the war. I recommend you play the tutorial and learn as much as it tells you.
    When you start the game it is best you spawn at a warpgate, this is a safe zone where your faction can assemble, spawn vehciles and change class where the enemy can't attack. Press the ESC key and goto settings at the bottom right corner of the screen. Here you can change the graphics settings, key binds, audio and other options that best meets your requirements.
    I recommend you start playing the game as a medic, as the medic applicator (Default key: 3) can heal friendly players with the left mouse button and revive them when their dead with the right mouse button when your close to them, upgrading it increases the speed to heals/revives and distance you require to be from your teammate. This is the fastest way to earn experience early in the game.
    You can find threads and links at the bottom of this guide that can help you understand and play the game further, alternatively the RPS community is always willing to help, when you join an outfit you can contact them by pressing (Default key: Enter) then beginning your message with "/outfitsay" this will send your message to the outfit only. Or you can talk to the community on the mumble server where they would be glad to help you.

    What is Daybreak Cash?

    Daybreak Cash(DBC) is an in-game currency that is purchased with real money, it is used to unlocked items in-game, although most items can be unlocked through in-game certifications DBC allows you to unlock them anytime and permently across your account for all characters and newly created. You can also earn DBC monthly by subscribing with an all access account which gives you membership across all DBG games.

    How do I join the RPS outfit

    Cool thread.

    If there's no objections, I could happily delete those threads that Challenger has marked as outdated if appropriate.

    Main character name is Seigous Bearheart. I also play on Duke Witherheart. And Lindenheart.

    I think there are still things in those other threads that are of use. We could maybe just have links here to them and just un-sticky.

    Name the links and I'll add them, I only added the ones I thought were really relevant. I mean the population counters are nice 'n all but I can't see any use for them.
    I think sticky this and unsticky the others but don't delete them, its other peoples work that they put effort into doing.
