Been playing for three days now and didn't know what the hell I was doing because the tutorial is absolutely terrible.

While the server was down today (AGAIN!!!!), I went to check out all the flame wars on the Steam forums. Checked the Guides section and found a friggin awesome guide.

For anyone that has ANY question about Defiance, including how to run Contracts, where the secret vendors are, or even why their car isn't moving - you owe it to yourself to check out Lexinators Defiance Guide (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=136738681#).

I am not in any way affiliated with the author, but seeing as how I had such a ***** of a time starting out; well I thought I would be helpful to all the noobz.

Although I am not a big fan of steam, especially after how they sold us Defiance + a discounted season pass for close to a hundred bucks, I did like this guide and found it very helpful.

Btw if you didn't buy defiance yet, you can get the game and season pass for sixty from gmg with a code. Dang I feel ripped off.

I'm not sure if it's good or bad for me to have considered 90% of the stuff in that guide to be common sense.

Guess I don't know much about these types of games because I found that guide extremely useful. Bookmarked and favorited.

The Scope Guide and Data Recorder guides are pure gold as well.

I like the scope guide, but Lexinator's guide has a link to a much better data recorder guide. Its in the spoilers section, along with the link to the awesome contract guide.

Hmm. I made a new account with Steam and found out that I can't post to even say thank you. Lol they want me to buy some game from them first. What a terrible system. Guess I will end up using my real Steam account to say thanks.

Wonder if I can somehow stop my name and such from showing up on there. Ugh. I don't like Steam.

I don't really use Steam all that much, so I wasn't aware that was even possible.

I would just like a good explanation of the stats associated with guns and shields, haha. And the reason why your car wont drive sometimes when you get in is because you got in on the passenger side.

Why don't you want to use your own name tho? Ashamed of buying Defiance?

well in general its not a good idea to use your real name in forums and communities and such, if you value your privacy

Exactly. I actually really like Defiance, but I'm paranoid about security.

That's in there. I finally learned what the hell Bloom was.

Q: Why isn't my vehicle moving?
A: You got in on the passenger side. Exit and enter the driver's side.

Oh, I see. Thought my vehicle was bugged. Glad I took the time to read this guide.

I don't usually post on forums because I think its a waste of time, but after spending an hour using the search function and looking for "guide" I finally found this.

Can we get it stickied or something, because there is a lot of good info here!

I finished reading the whole guide. Whoops. Guess vehicles in Arkfalls are bad. I thought they were a good way to get on top of the leaderboard.

I sure wish the games tutorial explained these things instead of us having to hunt down guides.

Giving this a very well deserved bump. It's not just for PC's either. I play on the 360 and found it extremely useful.

Check in the Steam Settings... you can set a 'display name'.

+1. Why isn't this stickied in the PC forum? Its lost on page 2 of google search after useless guides that ask you to pay for them. Bleugh.

Go sign the petition to allow PC gamers to play with console gamers. it's on the forum here somewhere but I can't find it. Things fall off the front page too quickly here.
