SOE continues to roll out patch after patch for their sci-fi MMOFPS Planetside 2 which consistently have added new weapons, armor, balance tweaks and facility reworks. Update 8 adds the first new vehicle dubbed the Harasser, a buggy with room for 3 -including Max suits- which when equipped with a turbo, is quite possibly the game’s most ridiculously hilarious vehicle yet (with the Flash a close second). The Harasser allows players to quickly traverse the map in small groups while providing quick strike firepower from both the top mounted gun and the rear seated passenger.
There is a lot more to the update other than the new vehicle, but a large majority of it boils down to weapon balance tweaks and UI improvements. All good things to have in an update, but come on it doesn’t hold a candle to that buggy. The update also adds 3 faction specific MAX anti-vehicle weapons and new cosmetic helmets, including one for the TR which eerily resembles a stormtrooper.
