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, stay fairly close to the vendor you want to get the weapon from, for 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!
