Below you will find a basic introduction to one of the games’ brutal weapon, Infectors. For something more in-depth, expert recommendations and tested strategies, my current recommendation is to pick up a copy of The Unofficial Defiance Book.

Infectors are the weapons of choice for conducting espionage and countering sniper squads. Ark Hunters can use Infectors offensively to neutralize mobile targets who might be escaping back behind enemy lines, and elevated enemies such as powerful snipers. Defensively, Ark Hunter agents can disrupt enemy focus fire by spreading Infector bugs and give them a chance to make a clean escape.
