I saw someone wearing this about 2 minutes ago. I have never seen this armor before, cannot find it in the store, and cannot find an associated pursuit.

I don't think any of the starter armor looks like this, so I am very confused as to where this came from-

He's a Pale Wars Ronin. It's a bonus, (think pre-order bonus) but I can't recall from where at the moment, but it's very familiar.

The armor is a pre-order bonus?

Seems like Daft Punk made it into the game, Also I'm not sure that doesn't look like anything pre-order that I have seen. Both the pre-order should be Red AND camouflage ish which I got both of. Nothing that looks like that though in my inventory at all.

Looks uncomfortable.

I'll bet it's just like a cheap hotel.
No ballroom.

Not pre-order bonus, I was merely using that as an example.

Maybe something from the ultimate physical edition of the game (the $150 one)

I seem to remember reading that the "Pale Wars Ronin" title came with it :confused:

We know this person paid at least $150 for the title.

"Defiance Ultimate Edition ($149), available only at GameStop, adds the following to the Collector’s Edition."

i've seen this outfit posted before and have since tried to find info about it.
so far i have found nothing...
i'm beginning to think maybe it is a Trion only outfit or something along those lines...

Yep I have the title and have yet to see that type of outfit, I guess if I make a male character maybe? But I don't think the female and male heads would change the head armor THAT much o.O

it's called the riveter outfit. it was in the shop during beta.

I have been playing Defiance since release day and I have only seen this armor maybe once or twice on the NA servers so I would also be interested in any info anyone can shed on this armor

I hope there are some "futuristic" type areas in the game, other than the Dark Matter bases of course. Seriously, is everything decimated? All the outfits feel so out of place.

I have no reason to not believe this but it seems strange that I would have hardly ever seen this outfit if it was a Gamestop pre-order item

Yes i know, i spent like 6 days finding info about this outfit... it was literally driving me crazy until i contact to tech. support and they confirmed to me that this outfit is a pre order bonus from people who pre order the game on gamestop...

Gamestop pre-order item was the red challenger. I see no indication that a special armor set was also included.

I preordered the UE from Gamestop way back in February and definitely did not receive this outfit.

I do believe it is the 'Riveter' outfit that was in the store for a very short while before they pulled it. I've seen it once or twice in game. (There's also another thread about this outfit that was started several weeks ago.)

Anyone else notice that char also has Nolan's pistol which would also appear to be unobtainable....based on that direction of deduction one can only conclude that...this continues to be a mystery the world MAY NEVER SOLVE! dum dum duuuummmm

but seriously who knows sometimes....Im still pissed they pulled the racing pro shops and that dam defense I saw the race shop had enough tokens for 1 challenger had some stuff to do kept debating whether or not to jump on that challenger...come back oh look all those shops are gone lol great white buffalo moment....
Im gonna hold off buying anything till castithan release sounds like best investment of money is to wait...unless those challengers appear...

Sorry to necro this thread. But over the past few days I have been seeing this outfit more frequently.

This is the kicker though.....ONLY new players are wearing this. Every single one of them. Not one has had an EGO rating over 250, NOT ONE. And most are barely over a 100 on their EGO ratings.

So...I really find it hard to believe that all these players are wearing an outfit that the got in a preorder a couple of months ago...and just started playing the game.

You get it from buying a new Defiance from gamestop it's an in game bonus along with an LMG and 15 inventory slots

If you buy Defiance online at gamestop you get the pack with that outfit and a wep and +15 inventory but you need power up rewards and you need to buy the game

Something that would actually be fun and worth while to spend Power Up Rewards points on???

Not in this life time

If you can use Powerup Points to buy a copy of Defiance you sure can.

This is from purchasing a NEW copy of Defiance from GameStop.

I am 90% sure that is the armor you get from buying the game as of about a week ago...armor, helmet, shotgun, and something else I think

5 pages is a lot to read, and the answer is probably already here... But it is the Riveter Armor. A Gamestop exclusive given to Power Up Rewards members that purchase the game. This is after 2 months, and we have no chance of getting that armor unless we buy another copy of Defiance... what a shame...

Oh snap. He is too! Where'd did he get that?

I thought the gun that came with it was the "Purifier" shotgun.

It could be a dev wearing it since that picture was taken a while back. The promotion is something that recently started at Gamestop.

I'm more offended that Trion is giving away +15 inventory slots to new players while all the long-time players get is broken patches. We never did get any compensation for the day of downtime from patch 1.020 either.

That armor is currently from a gamestop bonus if u buy the game new. It will b available in the store later on according to sledgehamer.

Because the game isn't subscription based. You didn't lose anything by not being able to play for a day.

Actually we did get something it was more along the lines of a week or two worth of boosts. Which yeah means nothing in comparison to the +15 inventory I suppose.

Thanks for clarification guys. The sudden mass influx of Riveters everywhere was actually kind of alarming.

Hiero Glyph

@RequiemPrime

If you think that is alarming, you should see how Gamestop feels about the sudden mass influx of unopened Defiance returns. I'm sure Trion is still counting these as new games sales though.
