The gameplay of XDefiant
Step into XDefiant two teams of six players each against each other. The guns come from modern military arsenals and include assault rifles, snipers and also shotguns. But there are also in the trailer fancier weapons like a flamethrower to see.

You can find the “Tom Clancy” influence in the Character classes (in the game Defiant), these come from the factions from well-known games with the Tom Clancy label on it. The Wolves from Ghost Recon are the tanks, the Outcasts are the healers and come from The Division just like that Cleanerwho play the role of Causer of damage take.
