That’s where we come in. If you have no idea how to get more A7, read on to find out.
How to Get the A7 in PlanetSide 2
A7 can be acquired in 2 different ways. Either via limited-time Alert missions or by decrypting exposed terminals around the world. You have a maximum cap of A7 of 5000, so if you are reaching that point you should think of spending some. They can be very hard to get, and you don’t want to waste opportunities to get more.
Exposed terminals are not the same as the regular terminals you see. They look like small glowing blue spheres, blinking on top of the computers you’ll find. Like this:
