The latest update to Defiance brings a number of player requested improvements to the game, along with a healthy side order of crushed bugs!

We’re in the depths of winter now, the perfect time to settle in on the couch and spend some quality time in Paradise! Winter’s Bash is focused on making every aspect of Defiance just a little better; check out some of the top features of the Update!

  • Boom - Headshot! PvP in Defiance has gotten a whole lot better with Winter’s Bash, with an all new emphasis on skill over volume of fire. Overall damage has been reduced, but Crit damage has greatly increased, so make your shots count! You’ll also earn experience quicker, get better rewards, and play on a more even field regardless of EGO rating.

In times long past, humanity celebrated a warm holiday tradition in many parts of the globe. Even now, memories persist of decorated conifers, reindeer, snowmen, massive feasts and giftgiving. Then the world changed, and life become harder, rougher, and less prone to celebration. We’re DONE with that.

We are committed to bringing cheer and fun back to this darkest time of year. It’s beginning to look a lot like the traditional holiday season in Paradise! We thumb our noses at death and hardship, Volge and exposure.

In fact, from December 14th to January 4th, we’re going to take the celebration TO the Volge. We doubt they’ll appreciate the sentiment, so we’ll warm them up one way or another… feel free to fill them with hot flaming death.

Solstice brings in a new pursuit, the Solstice Slayer, that will net you an epic jackpot SO2 Courier – this beauty can be upgraded to supreme!
Look for the Volge in both major and minor arkfalls during the Solstice Strike. You’ll find heaps of seasonal loot and battle your way through Volge to collect rewards of the new Eternal Presence synergy.

[2] +10% Mag Size
[3] 15% chance to fully reload equipped weapon on kill (Cooldown: 10s)
[4] 10% chance to refresh all cooldowns on kill (Cooldown: 30s)

Not to be outdone, the Tarr family will offer daily and weekly contracts that pay out epic and legendary Eternal Presence loot. Who says that Datak is a Scrooge? Best of all, he couldn’t care less if you’ve been naughty or nice, as long as you get the job done.
Finally keep an eye out for the Abominable Warmaster, only found in a special summoned Major Arkbreak!
On the store, two new cosmetic holiday bundles are also available during the Solstice, to outfit you in the holiday spirit:

Wreck the Halls Pack – 2600 Bits

  • Grim Wreather Title
  • RM Nomad V6 Camo "Mistle Tow Truck"
