PlanetSide 2 New-Player Walkthrough

I’m playing as TR on EU server Miller. If you want to play with people together you need to start your characters on the same server and same army.

Cert guide and order for each character:
The cert guide is mostly from my personal experience and calculations and tiny bits of internet exploration.
It has 3 assumptions:

  1. You suck at FPSs.
  2. You still want to contribute to the fights in meaningful ways and – at least if you play support – earn certs at a good pace.
  3. You want to get the most value from your cert purchases. (Consider that I’m TR so the gun purchases are based on that)

Light Assault
pending
(considering nanoweave r3, jet r4, 2C4)

Medic
Nanoweave Armor r1- 1
Medical Applicator r1- 10 (Your cert maker, heal and rez, mostly rez)
Nano-Regen Device r1- 1 (The AOE healing is not really important. The self heal of it is the best self heal in the game though, keep it active when going to rez under fire and turn it off when getting to cover)
Nano-Regen Device r2- 10
Medical Applicator r2- 30
Medical Applicator r3- 50
Night vision scope for the main gun- 30 (Why night vision? Because if you are only going to buy one type of scope for now you might as well take the one that will prevent you from being useless at night time)
Nanoweave Armor r2- 10
Nano-Regen Device r3- 30
Nano-Regen Device r4- 50
Medical Applicator r4- 100
Big important purchase if you really like this class:
Medical Applicator r5- 500 (looks expensive but the extra range and the sheer speed of the rez will make you a pro necromancer. This cert investment will easily return itself)

Engineer
Flak armor r1- 1
Nano-Armor Kit r1- 10 (Your cert maker. Tanks and MAXes can really shine when an engineer babysits them)
Nano-Armor Kit r2- 30
Flak armor r2- 10
Nano-Armor Kit r3- 50
Night vision scope for the main gun- 30
Medical Kit r1- 50 (unlocks for all classes when you purchase)
Nano-Armor Kit r4- 150
Big important purchase if you really like this class:
Anti-Vehicle MANA Turret- 1000

Infiltrator
pending

Heavy Assault
Flak armor r1- 1
Nanite Mesh Generator r1- 1
Flak armor r2- 10
The default gun is weird. I bought MSR-W because it’s similar to a carbine- 100
Night vision scope for the main gun- 30
Nanite Mesh Generator r1- 30
Medical Kit r1- 50 (unlocks for all classes when you purchase)
Bazooka with homing vs air unit- 250 "I am the protector of Russian skies!"
Anti-vehicle granade- 200
Flak armor r3- 50
Flak armor r4- 150
Big important purchase if you really like this class:
