Xbox 360 Extended Downtime - Update 3 - 11PM PST (7AM GMT) Defiance for the Xbox 360 is back online. Thanks for your patience! Update 2 - 10PM PST (6AM GMT) - The Defiance team is working with Xbox 360 to get this issue resolved but that resolution isn't likely before business hours on Tuesday. Unfortunately this means we'll remain offline overnight in NA (into the day in the EU). We're definitely aware of how frustrating this is for everyone and will also provide compensation for those of you who have been unable to play. We'll post another update the second we have more info. Update 1 - 4:30 PM PST (12:30 AM GMT) - We're still working to get this resolved but no ETA to report yet. Getting this sorted out is our top priority so please bear with us. Ark Hunters, Defiance on the Xbox 360 is going to remain offline for an extended period of time while we work to resolve an issue. We don't have an estimated time for when we will bring it back online just yet, but once we have more info we'll update this thread. Thanks for your patience.

Disconnects - 10:30 AM PST (6:30 PM GMT) - Nov. 14, 2017 - Greetings, We're investigating the current connection issues and will keep all of you up to speed with regular updates. Thanks!

I use this most of the time. The main point of this loadout is to recharge your ego power as fast as possible. And that's where my fully modded quartermaster 0.0 reload zagger comes into play. 0 reload time and ego power recharge on full reload paired with pumped up perk can recharge ego ability in a few shots. Here is how I use it.

To quickly recharge my ego power I switch to my zagger, fire a shot and switch back to my primary weapon. 7 seconds later (cooldown time) I do the same. It takes me 3 shots to fully recharge ego power. I can activate overcharge every 24+ seconds.

This loadout was ungodly before 7 second cooldown nerf. It only took 2 seconds to fully recharge your ego power. But even with a cooldown it's still a great loadout.
