Contracts

Defiance has contracts that you can choose to complete for extra rewards.  Contracts are found in your EGO menu in the “Goals” section.  Contracts refresh on a daily or weekly basis, and the amount of time left to complete them is displayed beside the details. Once a Contract is active, your progress on the requirements will automatically be applied. Progress also pops up on the main HUD as you get updates (very similar to how Pursuits update).

— Contracts expire/refresh at 19:05 UTC (which is just past noon pacific time), on Mondays for the weekly contracts. —

 

There is a scale of rewards for the Contracts, so if you don’t completely finish the full contract goal you’ll get a partial rewards.  Any progress at all gets you the lowest level reward… over 50% gets a silver level reward and completing the contract gets the highest gold level reward.  Rewards are SCRIP, ARK SALVAGE, and REPUTATION with one of the factions in the world of Defiance. There are special vendors associated with each faction.  These faction vendors sell items that may not be available on normal vendors, at a cost of scrip plus reputation.  You can see your current standing with each of the factions on the “Stats” section of the Character menu.

Daily Contracts are 10 reputation points.
Weekly Contracts are 50 reputation points.

  1. Pingback: Complete Contract Walkthrough | Arkfalls

  2. Keep up the good work. You’re guides are really helpful for us players that don’t have a lot of time to play and want to get the most out of our playtime.

  3. This is my go-to guide for everything defiance related. Love the depth and accuracy of all the guides. Alt + tab + this website has made my life so much easier!

  4. Minor correction re: the Clockwork Gods contract – periodically, scrapper arkfalls will occur in Sausalito, although i haven’t personally seen any scrapper arkfalls any further north than that.

  5. WOAH! Excelent job! I dont post enough here to greet all the work you guys put in those guides. Already got all the data recorders thanks to you, and was really having some trouble in finishing contracts, but thanks!! 😀

  6. You’re missing Parts Unknown for Top-Notch Toolworks (Collect 20 parts kits from 99ers in Marin) (Daily) and Most Wanted: Dy’Dekuso for Paradise Territory is a Weekly Contract.

  7. A new Daily popped up for today for Top-Notch Toolworks: A Bunch of Tools (Collect 20 tool kits from Raiders in Madera)

  8. New weekly contract:
    Top-Notch Toolworks – Engineer at the Gates
    – Collect 25 key codes from grenadiers or minigunners in Mount Tam

    I drove around looking for the “emergency” called “Mutant Grenadiers”. It spawns 3 of them. Also, you can grind for it at Sniper Ridge. “Sniper Ridge Assault” should pop up. After you destroy the ammo caches, ONE mutant grenadier will show up after the cutscene.

  9. Another new one

    Top-Notch Toolworks

    Engineer at the Gates – Collect 25 keys codes from grenadiers or minigunners in Mount Tam (Weekly)

    • And another

      Soleptor Enterprises
      Jewels of the Bay – Collect 20 Casthian jewels from blasters and rioters at mines. – Daily

  10. A new weekly for Top-Notch

    Engineer at the Gates: Collect 25 key codes from grenadiers or minigunners in Mount Tam

  11. Engineer at the Gates: Collect 25 key codes from grenadiers or minigunners in Mount Tam
    Rampage: Draw the Line — best choice.

  12. A new weekly for Von Bach

    Infernal Infectors – collect 15 digestive sacs from blast pods in the Diablo Oil refinery

  13. Pingback: Useful Links - The Older Gamers Forums

  14. How about “The Guns of Old” weekly
    Collect 10 Cannon shells from tankers in Sausalito
    What is best place to do this?
    All farms have some tankers ….

  15. So I just attempted the left and right locations on the Jewels of the bay map, those being the “Union Depot – Far right waypoint on map)” and the “Mine 98 (Far left Waypoint)” Both containing no raiders, while Ridgecrest seems to be the most effective one, at least for me and that’s having to sign out and back in to collect the rest
