  • Each Faction starts with one character unlocked by default. You need to complete in-game challenges to unlock others.
  • You need to complete a Major Challenge to earn 700,000 XP to unlock the DedSec Faction. Alternatively, you can use XCoins to buy them from the store.

XDefiant allows you to unlock additional characters in each Faction, which lets you change your character’s appearance. This doesn’t come with any other benefits besides the cosmetic aspect. While access to new characters lets you change your look, you will first need to complete a faction challenge to unlock them.
