Control

Below you will find a basic introduction to the control commands in Defiance, depending on the type of platform available. For something more in-depth, expert recommendations and tested strategies, my current recommendation is to pick up a copy of The Unofficial Defiance Book. It blows pretty much anything else I’ve seen online clean out of the water.

Since Defiance can be played via 3 different platforms: PC, Xbox 360, PS 3, each platform has different ways to control the game.
