Spitfire

If Santa's planning to make any visits to PlanetSide 2's engineers, he'd better watch out for turrets upon plopping down from out of the chimney.

Today's PS2 update adds the Spitfire Turret to every engineer's arsenal, letting them deploy an automated turret that will open up on any enemy within 50 meters. Also, every soldier will now have the ability to wield their knives in combat with more than just a quick slash, and knives will register headshots just like any other weapons. Or maybe that should be "throatshots."

Also added in the patch are customizable profile banners, to further rub in your victory to your kills and new tier 4 implants. Finally, snowmen are spawning all over Auraxis -- well, snowmen on Esamir and stone snowmen on the other continents, as well as the occasional golden snowman -- that grant XP for their destruction. There are a host of other fixes and tweaks, which you can read about in the patch notes, linked above.
