    Defiance universe

    If the TV show and game are one in the same why are the weapons different in the show, people seem to be equipped with modern military weapons and votan guns that don't even appear in the game besides nolans pistol plus in ep5 flashback nobody seems to be wearing any of the emc outfitts we can get ingame.

    Defiance recently had some Votan weapons brought in, plus they are closer to Manhattan and so better weapons. Militaries often have numerous types of uniforms and we've only seen a few.

    EMC, Raiders, and 99ers generally use the same crappy modern gear that people in Defiance use. Votan technology is expensive and rare - Defiance has been a peaceful settlement so it doesn't make a whole lot of sense that they'd invest heavily in weapons when they had relied on their gate for protection previously. The show even mentions they acquired Votan weapons from the VC - now that they're vulnerable to attack, they need to upgrade their arsenal.

    As far as the EMC outfits, are you talking about the EMC heavy gear? Wasn't Nolan special forces? Special forces typically don't kit themselves out in heavy gear like that - that gear is probably for front line fighting units.

    Yea, it would be nice to see more in-game weapons and designs used in the show from the game.

    So far the weapons seem pretty boring and generic and nothing like the game.

    You also have to remember they are in a desolate area where as places like New York, DC are probaly better equiped and probably more populated. Thats why if you saw the recent episode they (ERep Ambasador) mentioned those towns and expressed thier opinion on how the town of Defiance is now compared to those sections.

    According to Defiance lore, the Bay Area (the game) is pretty much the Wild West. So we're a lot more backwater, and also they're a small town with a lot of civilians. We've got nothing but fighters in our Wild West area, so that's why we've got grenades and shields and such.

    Yeah the shields thing, I don't think you're ever going to see shields on the show or acknowledgement about the lack of shields unless there's some special baddie. Most franchises pull the same **** where the shields come off during story time except in the case of the big boss, who keeps his shield to show you how tough he is.

    Yeah its just that from the things I've seen about the show the soldiers are using m4's etc not the emc/vbi/e rep service rifles and while defiance is closer to new york wouldn't it make more sense for them to have better access to the weapons in the game than the folks in san fran
