There are 10 types of currencies in Planetside 2:
- Certification Points
- Daybreak Cash
- A.S.P. Training Points
Certification Points, or Certs for short, are used to unlock and upgrade skills and equipment.
Certs are gained for every 250 Experience Points and by completing Alerts, directives, or missions.
Max: 10,000 | 50,000 (non-Members | Members)
ISO-4 is used to upgrade and craft implants.
ISO-4 is gained by breaking down duplicate implants and by completing Alerts, directives, or missions.
– ISO-4 is an expensive late-game currency. Save it up until you understand the implant system more!
Nanites are used to spawn vehicles and resupply consumables.
Nanites regenerate overtime at a rate of 50 Nanites/minute.
A7 is a data-based currency, which is used to purchase rare weapons and equipment from the Black Market Vendor on-board Sanctuary.
A7 is gained by downloading from exposed terminals and by completing directives, or missions.
Merit is used to purchase boosts, equipment, and cosmetics from the Outfit Quartermaster on-board Sanctuary.
Merit is gained by capturing and defending bases alongside Outfit members.
– You need to be in an Outfit to start gaining Merit.
– Leaving or being kicked from your Outfit resets your Merit and Loyalty Rank, but you keep any purchases made with Merit.
Daybreak Cash, or DBC for short, is used to purchase cosmetics, boosts, and weapons.
DBC can only be redeemed using codes or purchased in the Depot.
Advanced Specialization Program Training Points, or A.S.P. Training Points for short, are used to remove certain class-based restrictions or reduce the cost of pulling vehicle types.
Players can opt-into A.S.P. at Battle Rank 100 (or higher) for a one-time 10,000 Certs purchase (or free for current All Access Members). A.S.P. Training Points are gained every 20 levels until Battle Rank 100.
Auraxium is the most common resource type. Many Outfit-Owned bases provided periodic Auraxium gain, and participating in a base capture will always provide your Outfit with some amount of Auraxium.
Synthium is an uncommon resource type. These are typically earned when your Outfit owns a Major Facility or Construction-Enabled Lattice Base.
Polystellarite is a rare resource type. It may be earned periodically when your Outfit owns an extremely valuable base. There is one such base located at the center of every continent.
