Terran Republic Heavy Assault Loadout Class Build - Planetside 2

Updated on February 20, 2013

Join us!


What is Planetside 2?

Planetside 2 is an epic free-to-play MMOFPS with no other rivalries. The game pits three factions against each other for control of three continents. The game continents are huge, there is no round matches or small domination skirmishes... This is an all out WAR! within a persistent game world.

This is my Heavy Assault Load-Out.

The Heavy Trooper is one of the most useful classes in Planetside 2. From their high magazine rounds to their anti armor weapons. To get the most out of your heavy trooper you wanna target the build for maximum damage, accuracy, and survivor-ability.

The first thing i wanna talk about is the weapons we'll be using. After testing countless weapons I found the best weapon for accuracy and damage is the TMG-50. This gun is just nasty from a distance with burst fire. When you unlock the needed weapon attachments, this LMG will be your Planetside 2 best friend. the attachments i like to use are: The 3.4x Red-Dot Scope (30c) for that medium range accuracy, The Compressor (100c) to help with that vertical recoil when burst-firing, The High Velocity Ammo Rounds (100c) for more bullet damage at long range, and the Forward Grip (100c) for that horizontal recoil. This will make you play a hell of a lot better.. you will own the assault battles from medium to close range.

The Launcher

The secondary weapon of the heavy assault class is very important, Its what makes this class very important. The heavy assault is useful when hes clearing the way of any enemy pesky armor vehicles, ships, and gun turrets. The more you spam your rockets the more XP you'll earn. The one i use is the NS Annihilator. i use the Annihilator because of the simplicity of locking in on ground & air vehicles. It doesn't do as much as damage as the rest but spam, spam, & spam those rockets into everything you can! I guess this section can be held a the user's preference.
