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!

A new feature introduced in DLC 2 is the ability to place objects on the ground which benefit all arkhunters near it, as well as the abiilty to use potions on yourself.

Players may carry only one stack of each type of spike, stim, and grenade. Picking up a new consumable will refill your current stack of that consumable, regardless of rarity. If the new consumable is a higher rarity, it will upgrade and replace your current consumables.


  • Previously individual Spikes and Stims were normal drops, but now the only drops are Spike Charges and Stim Charges, obtaining them is done by lockbox or vendors.
  • Players who have purchased Arkbreaker will receive a random spike and stim in their Arkbreaker Stash in their claims section.
  • Spikes and stims can also be purchased from any Supply vendor.


Spikes and Stims will be Green or Blue, Green is the standard effect while Blue will have more of an effect. For example a Blue ammo spike might return more ammo per pulse.

  • Damage Spike (x, 100% boost)
