XDefiant Factions: The Best Starting Character Setup

XDefiant is out now on Xbox, and there's a lot of content to explore on day one as Ubisoft builds towards Season 1. That of course includes all of the game's factions and weapons, and in this guide we're going to talk about the best starting character in XDefiant.

Now, this is very dependant on playstyle and there are lots of good options on day one. However, we think the best way to ease into the game is by using XDefiant's 'Libertad' faction - making use of the quick heal ability as much as possible.

So, for our money, go for the Libertad faction and select the 'BioVida Boost' ability to start out in XDefiant. Here's an overview of the faction and what the character brings to XDefiant:

Once you get more comfortable with the game — and with avoiding death — you might want to switch things up and check out the other factions, but Libertad with BioVida Boost is definitely the way to go if you're just starting out on XDefiant!
