Friendly fire

Friendly fire is damage caused by members of the same Empire to each other. As its name implies, this is primarily damage caused by weapons, but within the context of PlanetSide can also include damage from vehicles as it relates to Grief.

Unlike many "traditional" team-based first-person shooters, PlanetSide does not make members of the same team (Empire) immune to each others weapons. It is possible to damage and kill one's teammates. This is one of the features that makes PlanetSide more tactical.
