Advanced Specialization Program

Advanced Specialization Program

Advanced Specialization Program (ASP) is the prestige system in PlanetSide 2. It is intended to provide veteran players with additional perks and unlocks that provide small gameplay bonuses and allow players to expand their loadouts with more options, including cross-class equipment.

How to access ASP

Advanced Specialization Program

Any character with Battle Rank 100 or above can enroll into ASP using the “My Character” screen of the main menu. Enrollment is free of charge for premium members. You keep your ASP if you lose membership afterwards.

Non-members have to pay 10 000 (ten thousand) Certification Points to enroll, which, incidentally, is a maximum amount of certs a non-member character can have.

Upon enrollment, your character’s Battle Rank will be reset to 1. You will keep all your unlocks and certifications. You will also receive a new icon and title, and you will have a star icon near your Battle Rank number.

Your new maximum Battle Rank will be set at 100, which means your character will no longer be able to reach Battle Rank 120. If additional decals and titles are important to you, consider reaching BR120 before enrolling into ASP.

At Battle Ranks 1, 25, 50, 75 and 100 you will earn an ASP token, which you can spend on ASP unlocks.

Each ASP unlock costs 1 ASP token.

Attention! Currently there is no way to refund or reset spent ASP tokens. Be careful with your choices!
