Defiance Lockboxes – The Key To Some Awesome Items!

In this post we are going to talk about lockboxes in Defiance and the different tiers and items you can get access too.

You normally have to pay money to open the boxes and they come in 3 different tiers:

Tier 2 Lock Box
Tier 3 Lock Box
Tier 4 Lock Box

You can purchase them from pretty much any vendor but depending on what tier you unlock will give you different rewards.

Obviously the higher the Tier the more it will cost.

Some of the boxes are overpriced.

If you are looking for a quick way to get items then I suggest you go for Tier 3 lockboxes. You will be able to open these for 24 key codes and 2000 Scrip or you can buy them for 24 Bits each.

You will get 3 items and a lot of the items will be Legendary or at least orange items.

You can also break the times down if you want to get a ton of Ark Salvage.

When you compare Tier 3 to Tier 4 and not much difference in the items you can see why Tier 3 makes sense.

Tier 4 will cost you 64 key codes plus 3000 Scrip or you can purchase them for 400 bits.

If you want some of the best items in the game I suggest you go for Tier 3 but it can also pay to check out Tier 4 once and a while!

How To Use The Infector Gun In Defiance

If you are looking for one of the best weapons to use when you are starting out in Defiance you can do a lot worse than the Infector but you do need to know how to use it properly.

This post will give you some pointers and tell you why it is such a powerful weapon.

One of the first things that you will want to bear in mind when you are using the Infector is that the (DoT) Damage Over Time is not the same as the Infected Indicators and you will find that it will stop a long time before the indicators disappear.

You will therefore have to refresh using it quite a bit for the full damage.

The good thing is that it is great to use against multiple enemies as you will be able to spread the infection and if you infect enough enemies the gun will create a chain reaction.

Once the first enemy dies, the bug hatched will damage the next target and so on so think of the Infector as an awesome weapon that builds damage up over time. The only downside of the gun is that the initial shots that you will be firing will not be very powerful until you start to infect a lot of enemies.

In my opinion you should focus on the “Canker” and “Invader” versions as Canker will give you increased DoT and make up for lack of bug damage while the Invader will rely more on bugs so pick one to match your playstyle.

If you are starting out with Defiance it is well worth learning how to use the Infector Gun:

Defiance Reputation Guide

In this post we will be looking at reputation in Defiance and why you need to focus on obtaining reputation if you want to get your hands on the best weapons. Basically you need reputation as you might have seen vendors around the different camps that have grey boxes and these items can only be bought when you have a big enough reputation.

Sounds simple enough right?

How To Get Reputation In Defiance?

Well this is where the problem comes in as the game does not make it easy to find out how to get rep. The way it works is that your reputation is tied to your EGO rating so as soon as you get an EGO rating of 250 you will gain access to Contracts. To find these if you open the main menu and then select “Goals” and then “Contracts” you will see some sliders that indicate your current reputation.

Once you open these you will find the option of running timed missions. The main thing to remember is that although a lot of the reputation missions are “Kill 10 XYZ” and fairly simple, the hard part is locating the creatures you have to kill to raise your rep for the vendor you want.

So as a rule always stay pretty close to the vendor you want the weapon from and the missions should be able to be completed there to unlock his/her weapons.

Once you complete a contract the item will appear in your inventory but some of them have steep time limits and can last for 4 or 5 days.

Although they take a lot of time by completing the contracts you can get your hands on some of the best weapons in the game.

Well worth doing!

Defiance Weapon Leveling Guide

In this post we are going to look at weapons in Defiance and the quickest way to level them. You can see the XP you are getting for a weapon in Defiance by the bar below each weapon and you will be able to see it below the mods slots of each weapon.

As you get more XP you will get weapon skills.

The thing to remember in Defiance is that once you have levelled a weapon and gained max XP you need to swap your weapons and level another one as each weapon can only be levelled once.

The rate at which your weapon will level is down to the damage you are dealing.

Once you level up you get an effect on your weapon and these can be Electrical which will stun enemies.

Toxic which will increase damage dealt by 20%.

Radiation which will increase the damage a target takes.

Biological which will slow them down.

Incendiary which will burn the enemy.

Syphon which will take some of the enemies’ health and give it to you.

So the main thing to remember is to keep on swapping your weapons as you need to level them up.

Eventually you will end up with an arsenal of powerful weapons on Defiance.

How To Level Up And Get EGO Points Fast In Defiance

Posted by DefianceGuru Saturday May 4 2013 at 9:27AM
Login or Register to rate this blog post!

In this post we have a tip that will help you level up quickly and get more EGO points in Defiance. I know that technically there are no levels but this will help you to level up faster.

What you need to do is the Rampage side quests.

The one I suggest keeping an eye out for is the Hellbug Rampage side quest – you will find this located on the eastern side of the map near the top but any Rampage side quest will work.

Most of these Rampage side quests are repeatable and you will get between 1000 to 3000 XP every time you do it.

Obviously the main thing we are going for here is speed so check out the Rampage missions and how long it takes you and you want to focus on the faster ones.

With most of these you will get scrip and resources as well.

To get through it quickly you should focus on the Skitters first as they will give you a multiplier and then on the other mobs once you have your multiplier up.

The main thing that you will want to do is focus on not getting overwhelmed so make sure you use your grenades and roll a lot as well as aim before you shoot!

Following this simple tactic you will get a ton of Ego points, scrip and resources quickly. Just ride around and find those Rampage side quests and keep a note of the quickest and easiest ones as well as rewards.

Defiance Arkfalls Guide

Posted by DefianceGuru Monday April 29 2013 at 11:27AM
Login or Register to rate this blog post!

This post will give you an intro to Arksfalls in Defiance and tell you how they work. You get 2 different types of Arkfalls and these are Minor and Major.

You will find that the Minor Arkfalls will give you access to Red Crystals and Blue crystals and the Major Arkfalls will be full of Hellbug and Scrappers.

If you are at a minor Red Crystal Arkfall you will need to destroy waves of enemies attacking you. Try not to kill the little skittering’s as these will bite the crystal and cause yellow bubbles to form on the surface which you can shoot to do damage to the crystal.

So in a way they will help you.

You will also get Blue Crystal Arkfalls and that will means that you have to kill all enemies that you see.

The only difference with a Major Arkfall is that they are a collection of small Arkfalls and you will have a boss surrounded by Blue Crystals.

You can earn more EGO points and a better rating by helping teammates. If you focus on helping the team you will do far better in Arkfalls and get more from them. The main rule is to not try and be a lone ranger. Just focus on helping the team out and you will do very well.

If you want to make fast progress in Defiance try and join as many Arkfalls as you can and remember to pick up all the drops.

How To Get The Best Purple Weapons In Defiance

If you are after the best weapons in Defiance this post will help and tell you the best ways to get the awesome weapons. Probably the fastest way is to raid the lock boxes and in order to open them you should go down the route of getting as much Ark Salvage as possible.

A quick way to do this is to destroy the weapons that you are not going to use into Ark Salvage.

You will get 250 for White, 500 for Green, 750 for Blue and 1000 for Purple.

Another way you can do this is by taking part in Arkfall events that will give you the codes for lock boxes. Some of the best events to get in on in order to get weapons are:

Feeding Frenzy
Crystal Clear
Crystal Cargo
Pest Control and there are loads more…

Once you have done a few of these you will get keycodes and you can convert weapons and items to Ark salvage as well.

You can also buy lockboxes and convert the items to Ark Salvage – most of the time you will get some of the keycodes you have spent back.

If you stay consistent and follow this you will be able to get some of the best weapons very quickly…

Defiance Weapon Modding Guide

Posted by DefianceGuru Friday April 26 2013 at 12:36PM
Login or Register to rate this blog post!

In this post we will give you a short guide to weapon modding which you will have to do at some point in the game. The reason you will need to mod your weapons is to make sure they are powerful enough late in the game.

Modding weapons allow you to make your favourite guns even better. Before you can even start modding you will need a weapon that can be modded, a mod and an EGO rating of 100.

Before you get to 100 EGO rating you will be able to access the Salvage Matrix but it is only after a rating of 100 that you will be able to start added mod slots to weapons.

All you need to do is bring up the loadout screen and then select Savage Matrix.

You then have some options:

You can break the weapon down for resources and this will give you some ark salvage.

How much you get depends on the color/value of the weapon:

White: 250
Green: 500
Blue: 750
Purple: 1000
Orange: 1250

Another little tip is to make sure you break all weapons and grenades down that you will not use.

Before you mod a weapon remember that if you have it equipped you will not be able to mod it.

You then simply click on “Attach mods” and you will be presented with all the mods you have. There are 4 main types:

Stock, Barrel, Magazine and Scope

You can see how valuable the mods are by using the color code above and you will also have a roman numeral to the side of the mod that tells you how rare it is.

There are also synergies that we will talk about in a later post – for now make sure you break down all the weapons and grenades that you will not use to get the resources from them and then use those resources to mod your weapons.

However today we are going to give you some general combat tips that will feature skills that are easy to implement in the game but will allow you to progress a lot faster as well.

Apart from picking your weapons, EGO powers and perks you will need to know a few strategies that will make the difference so here are a few tips for you.

  1. Learn to shoot on the move – Don’t stop moving! If you stop moving you will be an easy target. You will need to learn how to aim and shoot while you are moving left and right.
  2. Use the right gun for the job – It is a good idea to have your best weapons on hand and have one that is long range and one that is short range.
  3. Use grenades as much as possible – There is no limit to the amount of grenades that you can carry so make sure you use them a lot – you will not run out. There is a timer that will sound between the use of each one.
  4. Melee – This is overlooked but you can stun your enemy if you run in with a melee attack and hit them upside the head with your gun.

Using these 4 tips you should be able to make the world of difference to your progress in the game and the speed at which you get through the content as well.

What Perks To Pick In Defiance?

Posted by DefianceGuru Tuesday April 23 2013 at 9:53AM
Login or Register to rate this blog post!

In this post we are going to look at what perks you should pick when you are starting out in Defiance. The first thing you should know with perks is that no matter how many you unlock you will not be able to equip them all.

You can make outfits which are basically like playstyles and swap between them but you will need to stick with one set of perks until you swap it.

As a rule you will gain a new perk slot every 50 Ego rating.

What I would suggest when you are starting out is that no matter which EGO power you pick make sure you pick a perk that compliments the EGO power. For instance you could pick one that makes the duration of your EGO power last longer or have a faster recovery time.

Apart from the perks that enhance your EGO powers you will also find perks that are good for the type of playstyle you want to pick.

When you are starting the game however it is better to go for perks that increase the strength of your EGO power and then pick a playstyle later in the game.

If you follow the above no matter which EGO power you have picked initially you will make faster progress through the game.

Obviously weapons have a big part in Defiance so check out our weapon guide as well.
