Game Update 07 patch notes 17.04.2013 – 00:00 – Planetside 2

All servers will come down for maintenance at 6:00 AM PT (3:00 PM CEST) to patch Game Update 07. Downtime is anticipated to be less than 2 hours. Players may note the following changes:

New in the Depot
NS-44 Commissioner – The awe-inspiring stopping power of the accurate NS-44 Commissioner revolver can put down even mid-range targets with a few well placed shots. Cowboy up and grab one today!
NS-357 Underboss – Chambered for the powerful .357 magnum cartridge, the snub-nosed Underboss revolver features a faster rate of fire and more controllable recoil than its bigger NS-44 brother. The only question left is did you fire five shots or six?
Both of these new pistols have statistically identical black and gold tinted versions available in the Depot.
New Helmets for Heavy Assault and MAX:
New Conglomerate: GD Titan 113 Helmet
Terran Republic: Bravo MHS Helmet
