PlanetSide 2 Update 2.39 Patch Notes:

Auraximas is Upon Us!
A snowy Sanctuary heralds the beginnings of Auraximas, a holiday tradition for Auraxians young and old. With this festive season comes Snowmen-littered battlefields, a limited-time holiday directive, gift-giving missions, and special items available in the Depot.

Sanctuary’s Snowfall

  • The Sanctuary neutral ground comes to life as new sights and sounds permeate the corridors.
  • Watch out for the Snowblowers, they’re quite powerful!


Time-Limited Missions

  • Sanctuary’s observation drone is making a list, checking it… multiple times, and they need your help to obtain gifts for the denizens stationed aboard.
  • Receive one new Auraximas mission each day, and earn a special title reward when all are complete!


A new Holiday Directive!

  • Life on the battlefield can be made just a bit brighter with a new Auraximas directive!
  • Progress through these holiday challenges, and receive a sweet new camouflage on completion!


Snowman Surprise

  • You’ll occasionally find Snowman throughout the combat areas on Auraxis. Destroy them for extra experience!
  • An elusive Golden Snowman can occasionally be found hidden among them, destroying this one will yield a holiday hood ornament!
  • You can deploy your own Snowman Soldier by unlocking this (very) tactical item from the Depot.


Special Items In the Depot!
A barrage of holiday items can be found in the Depot!

  • Decals

  • Health regeneration from 50 per sec to 40 per sec.
  • Now has a 2 second delay before regeneration activates after taking damage.
  • Does not stack with Nanite Auto-Repair.

Misc. Changes, Fixes, and Additions

  • Nascent Expeditions has been given a new contractor image for campaign missions that they offer. (While Nascent Expeditions is technically a part of the New Conglomerate, they are their own organization.)
  • Lodestars should no longer spawn players beneath the ground.
  • Fixed issues with Lodestar/Wasp/Deliverer not acting as “true” vehicles in some cases, for the purposes of missile Lock-ons, Proximity Repairs, and others.
  • Bastion Fleet Carrier side and under-mounted hardpoints no longer fail to follow the Bastion after being destroyed.
  • Chapter 02 start date has been moved to Jan. 19, 2022, though this date is subject to change.

That’s about it for the patch.
