POSSIBLE SPOILERS

Overview:
Estimated achievement difficulty: 3/10
Offline: 0 [0]
Online: 50 [1000] (7 PvP achievements)
Approximate time: 150+ hours mostly for reputation and 2500 EGO
Minimum number of play-throughs needed: 1
Missable achievements: None
Does difficulty affect Achievements?: No
Unobtainable/glitched achievements?: No, as of patch 1.020
Extra equipment needed?: No
Is there DLC? Not yet

Introduction:

Defiance is a Buy to play MMO meaning there are no subscription costs. It encompasses the player as he journeys amidst a bright involving world after a Spacecraft crash in a world where invading aliens plague the surface in Arkfalls. Gameplay includes minigames, in a variety of challenges, an involving story, that plays in time with content from the SYFY tv show of the same title, and inventive gameplay.

Preparation:

The game is online only requiring multiple players to finish some tasks. thankfully we have a Xbox360a.org clan/guild to counter that hindrance. the thread can be found Here.

A beginner's guide can be found Here

Other useful links can be found Here

Be prepared to put in a hefty amount of time as it IS an MMO. This isn't a very difficult or daunting game, as most of the time, retreat is an option, as well as outright retrying a task or mission. Many of the missions can be done solo and you don't need to be in a group to do arkfall.

In terms of reputation required: To get the reputation maxed achievement it will take a minimum of 5 weeks playing everyday doing 7 daily's and 1 weekly for 120 rep to reach the required amount of 600 with each faction. This is without the opportunity for any 2 day reputation/faction contracts and NO boosts counted.

In order to progress the story sometimes it is required to do side missions enough to get the option to do a main mission, or wait for a short period of time.

Missable Achievements:

None ^_^ all achievements can be obtained by going to complete the quest. No glitched achievements are known at this time.

Achievements:
Legend of Defiance 70
Your reputation is sure to spread far beyond the borders of Paradise; Defiance!

Complete all other Achievements for the game.

Arkhunting 10
Valuable relics from the destroyed Votan arks frequently and dangerously rain from the sky

This is for minor Arkfalls, these won't require you to Fight a giant world boss but only waves of bad guys. See Arkhunting Safari for more details.

Arkhunting Party 10
Arkfalls draw quite a crowd for as dangerous as they are; Risk vs. reward, or so they say

See Arkhunting Safari for more details

Arkhunting Safari 15
The amount of debris still in the Ark Belt is nearly limitless; Talk about job security

This requires you to complete 10 Major Arkfalls. Arkfall is one of the main focuses of the game. Completing arkfall side activities allow you to get funding for goods as well as massive xp. They can be found on the map by looking for the red rings with the small fragmentation in the center. Drive to these locations and complete the task. Every Arkfall varies and some require you to visit multiple locations before the "world boss" Arkfall appears. A list of possible arkfalls can be found Here

Freight Magnate 15
Arkfall really did a number on shipping costs

This is for Winning 10 matches on Freight Yard. This is the pvp system, there is a menu for it after you leave the tutorial. Currently this map is unavailable.

you can enter pvp by hitting or then hold select matchmaking on the wheel, navigate with and to select the appropriate map.

Stargazer 15
That dark, dead, spot in the sky is the Votanis System

This is for Winning 10 matches on Observatory. This is the pvp system there is a menu for it after you leave the tutorial.

you can enter pvp by hitting or then hold select matchmaking on the wheel, navigate with and to select the appropriate map.

Wharfie 15
Raiders shut down sea lanes faster than E-Rep can open them

This is for Winning 10 matches on Waterfront. This is the pvp system there is a menu for it after you leave the tutorial.

you can enter pvp by hitting or then hold select matchmaking on the wheel, navigate with and to select the appropriate map.

Bit of an EGO 10
Von Bach has unlocked the secrets of EGO technology for commercial use; You are proof

Unlocks after you pick your first EGO perk after the tutorial mission. Access your EGO grid by hitting then over to the grid. You may choose any adjacent perk to ones you have already chosen.

Abundance of Ego 40
The evolution of your EGO is a testament to the genius of Von Bach and his mastery of Votan tech.

Earn 50 perks. More EGO points will come as levels. Complete missions, Arkfall, PVP, instances, and challenges to name a few to gain large sums of xp. You can get this early by re-specializing your EGO skills for a fee, from the EGO grid hit and place points back into any desired skill.

Stroking Your EGO 15
EGO hosts a Votan artifical intelligence, the implications of which are not fully understood

This requires that you fully upgrade a perk. Once you have chosen perks you enjoy or even if you're just getting the achievement, highlight the perk in the grid and hit . Each perk has 3 levels and each major skill has 5 levels. The required amount of ego points for an upgrade are listed on the right hand side whilst highlighting the perk.

EGO Maniac 30
Both the Earth Republic and the Votanis Collective are behind the curve in regulating EGO research

Upgrade 25 perks in the same fashion as listed for Stroking your EGO. You can get this early by re-specializing your EGO skills for a fee, from the EGO grid hit and place points back into any desired skill and upgrade them, move on to the next skill and upgrade. Respec multiple times if necessary.

Powerful EGO 15
EGO integrates at the genetic level, boosting the capabilities of the host beyond natural limits

This will require you to upgrade an EGO power in the same fashion as upgrading a perk. To upgrade a power fully it will require you to spend a total of 5 points into the skill and have at least a 400 EGO rating. EGO rating is the number in the upper left hand corner. See EGOcentric for more details.

EGOtistical 20
As your EGO evolves, so does your ability to handle diverse tactical situations

See EGOcentric for more details. requires 500 EGO rating.

EGOcentric Arkhunter 60
Your EGO has evolved past VBI's most optimistic forecasts

This achievement is for getting to 2500 EGO rating

EGO rating comes as you complete missions, Arkfall, PVP, instances, and challenges to name a few. The number can be found as a constant in the upper left hand corner of your visual screen to the left of your Character name.

Ego is the bread and butter of Character Talents in Defiance.The skill sets offer passive bonuses as well as active skills that help make looting more prolific, criticals more abundant, or active skills stronger. As you unlock more and more ego as you level you will have more passive traits available to equip. The higher your EGO level/rating the better gear will get.

Pursuits are accessed by hitting holding and moving to the upper right of your ego wheel under pursuits.

The area specific pursuits should be amongst the first your prioritize to complete as they prove the easiest, the useful links thread in my preparation section has locations for the data recorders required. This will account for 330 EGO points, Finishing all CO-OP map pursuits will add another 105, and you get another easy 30 along the way for Enemy groups doing side quests and main quests. Focus on doing tier one and two of the combat pursuits as you naturally progress through the game. Tier 3 and higher generally require methods to make them go by much faster.

There are a handful of methods to rack up kills towards pursuits quickly among a few are Rampage challenges- Bolinas sniper, Draw the line: LMG kills, Minigun mayhem: fastest overall kill method, Dark harvest: Dark matter kills and overall kills.

After completing it in the story mission you can go to Big Stone Reach where you are required to rescue some soldiers from 99er's, the second phase of this will send waves of hellbugs as the engineer is repairing a door. if you let the engineer die and move directly north of the engineer there is a breach in the wall where waves of skitterlings spawn you must kill all the skitterings to spawn more. You can use this method to get kills required for specific pursuits such as assault rifle or combat shotgun.

A method for Completing weapon skill level pursuits can be done by going to Trolley Graveyard in SE San Francisco. To begin with you face only Scrappers, they are trying to stop you from activating the various upload nodes. Kill them all with two BMGs loaded and work that weapon. After they have been dispatched you begin the Dark Matter run. Equip whatever weapons you wish to work and head into the structure and activate the Upload Device. The waves of Dark Matter are based off that device and its operational status SO...Let them shut it down. You will not fail the mission. Kill the first wave. Check your weapons, etc. then repair the machine. A new wave will come. Same process, let them shut it down, kill them all and then repair. Continue until all waves are complete and reap your rewards. You can score two blues off the Mechs if you do the majority of damage to them, I say this because you even get Scrapper allies to assist in the Dark Matter fight.

There is an elevated walkway with an ammo dispenser located right in the Upload Device structure and plenty of cover all around not to mention, again, you will receive Scrapper companions to assist you as you progress through the Dark Matter waves.

Wait For It… 50
You have found an extremely rare and valuable weapon; Make good use of it

This requires you to pick up a Legendary weapon and use it. Legendary weapons are Orange in color.

An item trading thread can be found HERE

Shoot to Skill 50
While it's good to specialize, it's wise to pick up a variety of skills

This will require you to level One weapon skill to MAX ( level 20). Your current skill levels can be accessed by hitting and to get to the reputation and skills tab.

As you use a variety of weapons you will level up their general skill traits. These passive bonus will raise accuracy, lower reload time, and even increase damage outputs. In order to continue leveling a Weapon skill such as Assault rifles, LMG's, or Rocket launchers you will have to change to a different weapon in that weapon class once it reaches max XP for the specific weapon. For example if I use a LMG SAW type and it sits at max XP 7789823/7789823 i need to switch to LMG Rocker type 0/7789823 to continue adding XP to my OVERALL LMG skill rank.

Calculated Killer 25
To your enemies across the new frontier, your name is "Death"

Kill 10,000 Enemies.

You can use the Minigun challenges in repetition to quickly and efficiently rack up kills towards this achievements as well as your Overall kill amounts for pursuits such as 50,000 kills.

You can find your overall kills amount in the pursuits tab under Season One > Combat > Living to Kill III.

A Friend in Need 5
Arkhunting can be a lonely vocation without trusted friends

You get this after reviving any Actual player whether or your friends list or not, and whether or not they are in your clan/guild.

There is a xbox360a clan/guild, information for it can be found here

Chasing Shadows 15
Echelon values experienced Shadow Operatives like yourself

Capture 50 points in shadow war. You can capture a point by approaching it and standing in the vicinity, you may need more than one person to capture the point. You don't have to be the person who got to the location first to get credit either.

You can find your overall captures amount in the pursuits tab under Season One > Competitive Multiplayer > Shadow War Profiteering II.

you can enter pvp by hitting or then hold select matchmaking on the wheel, navigate with and to select the appropriate map.

Vehicular Manslaughter 15
Normally Echelon hires drivers for non-combat contracts; For you, they make exceptions

Run over 25 players. Easiest done on shadow wars try to hover around nodes or on paths to main roads. You can also use the Site clan to boost with friends/clanmates in shadow war in more remote areas.

Brain Surgeon 15
When Echelon needs a skilled assassin, they know who to call

kill 50 players with headshots. Try to find advantageous points in shadow wars and watch the capture nodes. Wait for some one to sit still and pop away ^_^. The site clan has boosting sessions for this and will often help by doing shadow wars, have your friend sit still and this will be extremely easy.

Upper Echelon 15
Quantity over quality, but dead is still dead

kill 100 players. This will likely come with all your pvp win matches and the shadow wars. You have to get 25 from vehicles and 50 headshots totaling to 75. If necessary you can boost in shadow war or other PVP "instances" for an easier method.

Yeeeeeeehaaaaawww! 30
It would be more impressive if you did it in a single jump…

Jump a total of 5km with vehicles. To grind it out, there's a hill East of Iron Demon Ranch called Forbes Hill (along the Demon Run speed trial) that you can easily net ~50m on per jump.

Good Cardio 35
Sure, it’s fun. But swimming’s not the most effective means of travel…

swim a total of 1km. This will come pretty quick you can find any water spot and just swim in a circle it should take about 5-7 minutes straight.

Monolithic Landmark 15
Some gatekeepers are not to be trifled with

Cross the Golden Gate Bridge. This can be completed at the end of "Into the Heart of Darkness" in act 4 as long as you continue across to the end of the bridge.

This can be obtained earlier than finishing act 4 by "warping" to a friend who has already finished it, or discovered a fast travel station beyond the bridge. After warping to him you can go north by northwest or set a waypoint back by the start zone at least and it will take you there across the bridge. You can "Go To Friend" by entering the social tab in the EGO wheel and finding the friend in question be it through clan or friends list, you can then find the option under his specific friend tab on the right.

I don't really understand your rush to be first with a guide that has absolutely no info in it.

I thought there were rules on this forum for posting basically empty guides?

There is an achievement for swimming 1km and an achievement for jumping 5km in vehicles. For the 'achievement' guide above, the xbox descriptions are better in the first instance as they say what you need to do, rather than those posted which is what it says after completion.

i'm not doing this so i can be the first posted guide i'm doing this so that shiftie and i can work on this guide together, being that this was the easiest means for us to communicate I posted here. If i violated something then i apologize.

In being an RPG this game will require the names of quests up to the required achievement. Pictures of the location (By preference) of where to find it. And any minor help that many be required to complete the quest with conditions.

I made an incomplete guide for KOA:R and pants ended up doing most of the editing and addition. this is a MASSIVE WIP. In no way do i call this by any means finished.

Maybe for the EGO based achievements you can also add what level they'll unlock at. Would be good to know when each one will unlock and what to aim for etc.

While the servers are down I'll submit what I have so far (some of them are guesses cause the descriptions are dumb)

Note: you may want to update the achievement descriptions before you unlock them and they become the stupid descriptions (which is why I have to guess )

Holy Shtako! - Pops during the tutorial
Bit of an EGO - End of the tutorial I think (maybe at 50 EGO or 1 EGO point?)
Arkhunting Party - Complete an Arkfall (maybe a big Arkfall, cause that's what I did)
Individual Pursuit - Simply complete a pursuit. One of the first ones will probably be for the vehicles.
A Friend in Need - Revive a player. The guy was not a friend, clan member OR in my party, just a guy near me.
Skruggin' Ark Core - This pops after you save Von Bach from the locker. Story related.

Shiftie i would like to keep the chain of quest names/titles up to the actual achievement, hopefully locations via map as well. I got this title on steam as well so i will be taking video and SS on fraps of the quests hopefully to post on here. This should be pretty in depth, once i do it all. Until then it will be a 1 star rating guide lol.

Anyone is welcome to post a guide, even if it is a WiP. Feel free to contribute to any part you feel may be lacking

No violations, in fact it's probably more beneficial posting this out in the open so hopefully more people can contribute and make the guide complete quicker than if you were working on it in private

The repeatable contracts required to raise your reputation (for the associated achievements) are unlocked at 250 EGO.
I got Office in Back for doing one of the Top-Notch Toolworks quests.

For Yeehaaw!, if you want to grind it out, there's a hill East of Iron Demon Ranch called Forbes Hill (along the Demon Run speed trial) that you can easily net ~50m on per jump.

Best I'd be able to do is my phone camera

Anyway.. the rep contracts I currently have are:

edit: they must change once the timer is up on them or something, cause you can do at least the shorter ones repeatedly without having to wait.

Top-Notch Toolworks
A Bunch of Tools - collect 20 tool kits from Raiders in Madera
Nonstarter - Collect 100 stim packs from Raiders in Madera

Von Bach Industries
Rocket Surgery - Collect 15 rockets from blasters on farms
The Long Bomb - Collect 10 hulker bombs

Echelon
Trial by Fire - Kill 20 players in competitive multiplayer
Seize the Day - Complete 10 Capture and Hold Matches*
*The Capture and Hold map is Freight Yard

Soleptor Enterprises
Occupational Hazards - Collect 15 gas masks from rioters on farms
Mother's Muck - Collect 10 digestive enzyme samples from matrons

Paradise Territory
Scrapworks Salvage - Complete the "Scrapworks Salvage" co-op map
(I think it's safe to say the required co-op map changes daily)

I'm not sure if these quests change when their time is up or not, but the first quest in each rep group is less than a day, including the paradise territory contract, (they're at 13hr38min for me right now) and the second contract is five days. All of the contract items appear to auto loot, so you don't need to pick stuff up.

For "Wait for It..." you can get an orange item from the Tier 4 Lock Box, which costs either 400 bits, or 64 key codes and 3,000 scrip. The keycodes can be gained via quests, pvp, etc. or purchased for 1k scrap a piece.

They appear in the menu next to pursuits once you reach 250 EGO. They finish and grant reputation automatically. I typed out the ones I currently have a few posts up if you want to see what to expect. Most of them are really straight forward.

Oooooh, I need 250 EGO. That makes sense. Only 62 to go!

Also, do you know if there is a way to track achievement progress in the game?
