Defiance Contracts Guide – Daily and Weekly Contracts and How To

Contracts in Defiance are special daily and weekly missions that factions will hand out to you. Completing these contracts will earn players various sorts of rewards, ranging from gear like armor and weapons to reputation increase.

The type of contracts vary from faction to faction. Each day a certain amount of contracts will be given by the factions. In addition to this, there are weekly contracts as well, which span for a week and require lengthy tasks to be fulfilled.

Defiance Contracts – Daily and Weekly

Contracts can only be obtained once a person reaches 250 EGO rating. Many of the areas associated with the Contract requirements spawn enemies and items suited to the task of the contract. If you need to fulfill these tasks multiple times (often the case in weekly Contracts), try leaving the area (along with all the other partners/people that are in the area) and returning to it two to three minutes later.

So, let’s see the various contracts that are on offer, along with possible locations that will aid in their completion:
