Melee Weapons & Turrets Arrive

Melee Weapons & Turrets Arrive - PlanetSide 2 - MMORPG.com

Sony Online Entertainment has released the latest Planetside 2 update that includes melee weapons and a new turret for engineers. In addition, the game's holiday fare has also arrived in game that will keep players in the seasonal spirit through the balance of 2014.

Wieldable Knives

  • Knives can now be wielded by holding down the quick knife button or via gear slot 8. In general a wielded knife can swing faster than the quick knife.
  • Knife hit detection has been adjusted to be more precise. Knives can now get head shots and will play impact effects on the surface they hit.
  • A new knife has been added to each empire. They are slower to equip and swing than the default knife, but when wielded, they can be activated by switching fire modes. When activated, these deal increased damage and emit audio and visual effects.
Spitfire Turrets
  • The new Spitfire Auto-Turret is now available for engineers. Located in their ability slot, the engineer can construct a Spitfire Auto-Turret that will automatically engage hostile infantry within 50 meters.
