How to unlock deadsec in XDefiant

May 23, 2024 by No Comments


XDefiant, the newest free-to-play arena shooter from Ubisoft, is impressing us. It’s taking the gaming world by storm by removing all the bells and whistles of modern competitive shooters. Instead, it’s just pure, old-school fun. Much of that fun comes from the many unlocks you can score by playing the game. Here’s how to unlock DeadSec in XDefiant!

How to Open Deadsec in XDefiant

XDefiant has multiple factions including Cleaners, Outcasts, Phantoms, Libertard, Echelon and the highly regarded but currently locked DeadSec. To unlock DeadSec, you need to earn 700,000 XP by playing the game normally. Yes, it takes a ton of time to get all those experience points.

If you play as badly as I did in my first match, you can earn 7,000 or more XP. I managed to get third place on my team, so the higher you rank, the more XP you’ll earn per match and unlock the final faction of the game sooner!

But, is it worth the grind? Actually, yes! DeadSec offers several skills—Tactical, Passive, and Ultimate—that in the right hands can change the outcome of a match!

XDefiant Deadsec Faction Skills

Like other factions in XDefiant, Dedsec has four distinct skills:

  • Hijack: Ability to hack enemy deployed abilities and devices, making them your own.
  • Spiderbot: Deploys a spiderbot that targets and stuns enemies for 5 seconds.
  • Fabricator: After a device is placed on the battlefield, the Fabricator prints a new one every 15 seconds.
  • Lockout: Disables enemy mini-map and map-wide abilities!

Fabricator is probably the weakest skill of the four, but it’s still useful. The other three, however, can destroy the enemy team in short order!

Either way, it’s worth your time and energy to unlock Deadsec in XDefiant!
