How to Get XDefiant DedSec Faction

There are two different methods of unlocking DedSec in XDefiant:

  • Purchase with XCoins
  • Complete Major Challenge objective

If you’re happy to spend some real-life cash in XDefiant, getting the DedSec faction is easy. When you click on DedSec, you have two purchase options. You can either spend 1,000 XCoins on unlocking the faction overall, or 2,500 XCoins to get the faction, all three of its characters, plus some cosmetic items.

The only free way of getting DedSec is to complete its corresponding Major Challenge quest. This requires you to earn 700,000 XP total across your playtime in the game. It’s no easy feat by any means, as an average match will net you between 7,000-10,000 XP without factoring in time-limited boosts. It takes an awful lot of grinding, but it is a free alternative.
