As you might have heard, players have the chance to pick up Station Cash cards at participating 7-Eleven retailers this weekend and redeem them for double Station Cash!
These cards are available at US 7-Eleven stores and must be redeemed between 12:01AM PDT April 27, 2013 and 11:59PM PDT April 28, 2013 to be eligible for the bonus.
Here are some ideas on how you can spend all of your extra Station Cash in PlanetSide 2!
Boost Your XP Gain
Boost Implants are like the gift that keeps on giving. If you're looking for more than just a quick fix, we definitely recommend spending some of your bonus SC this weekend on an Implant. If you've never bothered with them in the past, here's how they work: implants will boost the rate at which you earn experience or resources in PlanetSide 2.
Depending on how much SC you want to spend, the implant lasts anywhere from 1 hour to 7 days.
These come in three forms:
- Resource Amplifier
- Squad Experience Amplifier
- Squad Resource Amplifier
If you're playing PlanetSide 2 for the long haul, spend the extra SC on a 7-day boost implant and really make it count!
Customize Your Soldier
PlanetSide 2 has a ton of customization options built into the game, but most of them are available exclusively through Station Cash purchases. These items are what free to play was meant to be; purely cosmetic with no gameplay benefits to give you an edge over other players.
These items are there for players who want to stand out on the battlefield. There are a lot of soldiers on any given PlanetSide server, so why not stand out amongst the throng of ordinary fighters?
There are dozens of ways to customize your player, including decals, camouflage patterns and new soldier armor. Most of these camo's are available for a one-time use of 50 SC or a permanent unlock for 500 SC. We recommend trying out a particular design and see how you like it before shelling out the 500 SC for the full unlock.
Try New Weapons
For us, one of the best ways you can spend your Station Cash is on new weapons. This is a shooter, after all, so why not buy more things to shooter other things with?
There are a ton of weapons in PlanetSide 2 and you can streamline the process of unlocking these items by simply purchasing them with Station Cash. You could go the route of grinding to earn certification points and buy yourself some new weapons that way, but it's a heck of a lot easier and faster to just use your Station Cash. Particularly this weekend, when you're getting twice as much as normal.
It isn't really possible to say which weapons in PlanetSide 2 are 'the best' weapons. They all offer something different to the table, so we recommend spending some time testing them out in the VR Training before spending your money on something you've never even used before.
How do you plan on spending your bonus Station Cash this weekend? Don't forget, you can always stock it up and use it at a later date or even in another game, entirely.
