Session Notes – April 8th

Remember that Insider Sessions is covered by NDA which prohibits the recording/capturing/sharing of XDefiant visually.


Welcome back to those who have particpated and everyone new to XDefiant! We’re excited to share with everyone this work-in-progress build, designed to get your early feedback on the game. Please remember that work-in-progress means that exactly and so you will encounter bugs, non finished assets, and more. Thank you for participating and giving feedback!

Patch Notes


  • Fixed an issue where skills can get stuck in “is deploying” state

This Week

For this week’s playtest we will be playing

  • Game Modes: Occupy and Zone Control
  • Maps: Dumbo, Liberty, Nudleplex, Times Square, Midway

Focus of the test

  • Controls ( Mouse and Keyboard, Controller) – Mouse and Keyboard controls are a work-in-progress and we are very excited to hear your feedback on this system to help improve it.

*Note: We’ve disabled the social functions (party) this week as we investigate a bug impacting it.


This week’s focus is on controls/aiming! Here is a little more information on the topic:

Gamepad Default: Adjusted our default vertical sensitivity to display equally to horizontal. Should now display 40 Horitzontal and 40 Vertical.

Mouse Default: Adjusted default ADS factor for low zoom to match high zoom.

We’re still very focused on optimizing our gamepad controls as a whole and are currently investigating changes to our look acceleration which may be adjusted in a future update!
