The ANT is a medium ground construction vehicle. The main purpose of the vehicle is to collect randomly spawning resouces called Cortium, which can then be used to create player-made bases. By default, the driver has access to a WLT-Mandible Mining Laser which is used to collect Cortium from Cortium Crystals, whilst the gunner uses a WLT-Yellowjacket Mining Laser, which also mines Cortium. The top gunner turret can be replaced by an offensive weapon for self defense, rather than mining.

As the backbone of the Construction System, ANTs collect resources and begin the construction of bases. The ANT can deploy, allowing access to a terminal on the back of the vehicle. Using the terminal gives the player the ability to purchase and build construction items, such as walls or silos.

Ants can be spawned at any ground vehicle terminal.

Useful knowledge





In the original PlanetSide, the ANT was a small vehicle that filled up with resources at a friendly warpgate. Once full, it could be transported to a friendly base, where upon it would be deployed near a structure that drained the ANT to power the bases automatic defenses, passively decreasing in resources until none is left. If the base ran out of resources, it would then be neutralized, and easy for anyone to capture. However, many players felt like it was nothing but a chore to do, as otherwise the base would take hours to run out of energy, and the resupplying process usually goes without any action.
