Maybe add something similar into the contracts......such as Bounties on a specific Target to hunt.

Could be fun if you had to go somewhere to accept the contract first......then given a general area (or possible areas) the target could be found. Then search for the target, kill, get the credit, then return for contract completion.

Have the bounty list change every few hours or once a day (can just be random which ones when) and it might just give the extra content to make some people happy.

maybe even player bounties? taking a contract for a bounty gives you a target and makes you one for someone else?

That's what the contract system is... the faction puts a contract on a certain item or target, we complete them for rewards. Less RP involved but that's the gist of the system.

Wow, major Star Wars Galaxies flashback!

You just described in a nutshell the bounty hunting missions there, which I still miss to this day. They were randomly generated and given out by a cold, impersonal data terminal. They were repetitive. They were prone to bugs, like your target showing up scaled to such a high level you had no prayer of taking it down. But man, were they fun despite all that.

Something like that would seemingly be perfect for Defiance, seeking out and taking down a specific, randomly generated mini-boss target. Named raiders, infamous bandit leaders, etc. Get a few map spot leads to check out, maybe a clue or an ambush at the red herring ones. Fun idea.

The current contract system is very......broad.

I'm talking about not a specific "type" of enemy......but literally specific single target.
Not "kill 100 skitterlings" but more "track down and kill 99er named xxxxxx"
Also you would have to sign up in a sense for that specific bounty.
