Don’t waste your boost when in your vehicle is airborn.
It doesn’t increase speed nearly as much (if at all) as when your tires are on the ground. Allowing your boost to refill every time you’re airborn will drastically reduce overall travel time, which can mean the difference between 1st and 2nd place at Major Arkfalls.
Choose your path wisely!
Setting waypoints is important, but doesn’t usually show the quickest route. Look for trails off main roads and B-line over smaller foothills. Boost conservation is especially when climbing uphill. Don’t use all of your boost if you’re coming up to a steeper incline than what your on now. If lose enough momentum trying to get up a steep mountain, you’ll stop and roll all the way back down, waste time and feel like an idiot.
Know your vehicle
Know what your vehicle can take and what it can’t. Don’t expect to run over Elites in your runner and don’t expect to climb to the top of the world in a hauler. Different jobs call for different rides. Know all of your vehicles’ ballpark HP, Damage, and speeds. It’s not a bad idea to have a variety of vehicles in your loadouts.
Overwhelmed by a group? Call your vehicle and make a break for it! There’s no shame in running away.
Defiance is a different kind of MMO to hit the web and this one shakes things up a little bit! It is a shooter and an MMO rolled into one. So if you are used to the standard MMO you may have a bit of a learning curve. Of course there is a strategy aspect as well. You will need to learn how to use EGO, Perks and more than this you will need to know about the weapons and hoe to build them, add mods and use them to your advantage. Of course this is going to take a bit of working out.
One guide that has launched that will give you a headstart on launch day is Defiance Guru, a complete strategy guide for the MMO that will feature EGO and Perks guides, Weapons guides and how to use the mods and also a complete missions and side mission guide so you can make fast progress leveling.
We all know that one of the main things people do when there is a new MMO is all race to the level cap and try and explore the game first, well this guide should help you see all of the game and play the way it was meant to be played.
