Defiance: How to Get the Best Weapons for PvP or PvE

In pretty much any MMO game you’ll ever play, the overall strength and ability of your player to absolutely dominate is largely determined by the gear you have. In Defiance, it’s no different. If you want to completely own the playing field, whether it be in open-world PvE (just running around the world of doing story missions), competitive PvP, or even Shadow War, you need to get your hands on the best weapons in the game.

If you’re having a hard time performing well in Arkfalls or other events where you’re awarded with higher level gear, be sure to try using a Defiance guide to learn how you can do a bit better.

Defiance Best Weapons

About High Level Weapons

The best weapons in Defiance are the purple (epic) and orange (legendary weapons) ones. They are pretty difficult to get, though. While you do have a chance of looting them from enemies you kill or as a reward for completing an Arkfall, they are usually only obtained by opening up lockboxes. And even then they are still very rare weapons to get. The base stats of these firearms aren’t necessarily the best but their ability to be upgraded with mods and the fact that some of them come with synergy bonuses makes them incredibly strong.

How to Get Epic and Legendary Weapons

The best way to get them is by simply getting T4 (tier 4) lockboxes. These are the highest level, contain 4 random items of at least blue (uncommon) rarity, and also the most expensive. To get one you’ll need 64 keycodes and 3000 Scrip. Scrip is pretty easy to come by by keycodes can be a bit of a pain if you don’t know what you’re doing. We’ve going to publish a Defiance keycode farming guide very soon to help everyone out with that, though.

NOTE: You can also receive epic or legendary grade gear by participating in Arkfalls. This is another great way to farm them and also to get a ton of keycodes, too. You’ll also earn quite a bit of Ark Salvage when can be used to buy even more keys for T4 lockboxes.
