PlanetSide Arena is the next entry in the sci-fi shooter series and Daybreak is moving away from the focus on territorial control that PlanetSide 2 had. Instead, Arena gets closer to a Battle Royale, just on a much bigger scale than anything presently out there.That's mostly due to how its Massive Clash mode pits two teams of 250 players each against each other on a immense map. The Battle Royale mode comes as an answer to those looking to either play solo or in teams of 3.
Like in most other first-person shooters, weapons play a central role in PlanetSide Arena. The title will include both new weapons as well as series classics which have been overhauled to suit the title's gameplay. Most weapons will support underbarrel attachments at high tiers. A recent video gave us an initial glimpse of what to expect in terms of weapons from PlanetSide Arena, and we compiled all of them in the list below.
What Weapons Will Be Featured in PlanetSide Arena?
Versatile weapons which pull their weight at most ranges, Assault Rifles are confirmed to be a part of PlanetSide Arena. Series veterans will recognize the TORQ-9 which makes a return. One possible underbarrel attachment for Assault Rifles is a rocket launcher which is bound to come in handy when dealing with vehicles.
In a match with 250 players, it's safe to say that there'll be plenty of things to shoot at. The problem with ammo is that it comes in a finite amount, which might leave you vulnerable. That's when swapping to your trusty Sidearm comes into play, as they won't be missing the fun in PlanetSide Arena.
As versatile as Assault Rifles are, SMGs are a better answer for engagements at closer range, due to their higher rate of fire and easier maneuverability. Series veterans will recognize the PDW-16 Hailstorm which is present in PlanetSide Arena.
Sniper Rifles are also back. Useful for providing cover fire and long range support, as well as in those moments when you'd rather just enjoy the chaos from afar while contributing to the fight, chances are you'll sooner or later give them a try..
