Prepare yourself, ark hunters: Supreme Tier weapons have arrived in time to combat dangerous new parasitic lifeforms appearing throughout the Bay! Supreme weapons boast an innate damage boost plus new rarity bonuses and masteries, and they launch alongside a new reroll system you can use to adjust one rarity bonus per weapon.

After scooping up Supreme weapons in high-tier Expeditions (or through Salvage Matrix upgrades), you can put them to use in new private instances by opening your very own Major arkbreaks. Want to keep other ark hunters from joining your Warmaster instance? No problem! You can invite friends and clanmates to your party (and show everyone else to the airlock).

For an in-depth look at Supreme Weapons and Rarity Tier Bonus Rerolls, jump to our Supreme Update preview – and enjoy the brand-new tier!

Happy hunting,
The Defiance Team

Ark hunters,

Sting has arrived on the New Frontier! Manufactured with excellent hip accuracy, this new Legendary Pulser is designed with movement in mind.

Sting is available now as a rare-drop from Premium Elite and Elite Lock Boxes sold from the Defiance Store (and vendors throughout the Bay) – but it’s only available for a limited time!

Happy hunting!

Ark hunters,

Our new synergy is here! From now until August 25, your EGO will get a huge boost with the powerful Sustained Suppression synergy. Just using your EGO amplifies your damage, while reloading reduces the cooldown!

Sustained Suppression Synergy
  • +10% Health
  • -15% Reload
  • 5% EGO power recharge on full reload (Cooldown: 7s)
  • EGO power grants an additional 10% damage and fire rate
This awesome synergy comes with the Sustained Suppression Crate, which will also include one epic or better weapon and three rare to legendary mods.

Through August 11, Sustained Suppression Crates also have a chance to contain the legendary, limited time Lockstock, the latest jackpot weapon! Coupled with Sustained Suppression, this sawed-off shotgun will end your enemies, lock, stock, and barrel.

Stock up on crates today before time runs out!

Launching off of the success of Order and Chaos, Von Bach Industries is proud to present the RA-44 Hellcat. Aptly named and recently acquired, the RA-44 Hellcat is the first Alien Guided Rocket Launcher of its kind. Reminiscent of the alien technology that made the Chimera Horn possible, this innovation is the latest jackpot weapon available from the Premium Elite Lock Box and Elite Lock Box. With the ability to lock in on targets with the right aim, this heavy hitter will have your enemies running for the hills.

Due to limited manufacturing facilities in the Bay Area, Von Bach Industries is restricting supply of this legendary weapon to Premium Elite Lock Boxes sold from the Defiance Store or lock box vendors throughout the Bay. The RA-44 Hellcat will only be available for a limited time, so pick up Premium Elite Lock Boxes or Elite Lock Boxes for a this chance at raising hell!

Attention ark hunters! We're getting reports from your fellow expeditioneers that a fortuitous opportunity is about to hatch. Literally.

The rare loot-hoarding golden skitterling breed of hellbugs appear to be spawning in increased numbers in response to the threat from marauders. That'd be you, of course, as this particular breed drops Cyber Rigs and Cyber Chips and is hunted with great zeal.
