I have had to send these to a couple of people, and I always have to go find them again. So here is a post of a lot of good videos for players new to Planetside 2. All of them by Wrel. If you play Planetside 2, go subscribe to his channel. He has tons of content over there, including weapon reviews, montages, loadout reviews, and equipment reviews.


First up is the general overview of the gameplay in Planetside 2. This covers the three factions, how base captures work, and how to join up with other players.

With the basics out of the way, here is an overview of each of the player classes in the game. Watch them all to get a feel of how they play. I would then suggest new players pick one or two classes to specialize in at first. Personal suggestions are both the Combat Medic and the Heavy assault. Under each video is a link to a certification guide that will suggest how new players should spend their first 1,000 certification points in each class.
