Defiance is a ARMA III Game mode that combines elements from the Zeus DLC and Team vs. Team (TvT) game play. Read a detailed description or watch our video overview at

  • Can be played as Single-player, CO-OP or Team vs. Team and even dynamically switching between those modes
  • Save game option so you can continue the fight at any time
  • Zeus AI for use in COOP and SP Modes
  • Multiple Zeus Roles (2 BLUFOR and 1 INDFOR) controlled by an in-game live voting system
  • Resource Regeneration and Upkeep System giving the game mode an RTS feel
  • Dynamic and Randomized Objectives. No game is ever the same twice
  • Asymmetric, balanced game design allowing for a different play experience based on the team you choose
  • Civilian based intel system for discovering objectives and being immersed into a living breathing battlefield that responds to your actions
  • Dozens of Mission Parameters allow heavy customization of the game mode without editing a single line of code

Understandable, thank you anyway

Hi there, the project has ended. While I really enjoyed working on it, spending hundreds of hours on building the maps and testing, at the time there wasn't the interest in this type of game mode unfortunately.

@Nashable Any chance of you coming back

The project was abandoned a couple years ago, so not surprising they stopped paying for the website.

Thanks for the report, I'll take a look at the weekend at the standalone .pbo on the website. Those shouldn't be any different but I'll make sure they work.

Hi Nashable, sorry for my late reply. Eventually I got the mission working by running the steam workshop Altis mission as a listen server (like you suggested). The pbo I downloaded from the Defiance website didn't work (2nd player ended up in water).

This is interesting, because I got the same pbo on my dedicated server , and all users end up in the water. Thus I wanted to copy the steam workshop pbo version to my dedicated server.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to find the pbo on my filesystem (I believe it should be somewhere in the Steam\userdata\35326227\ugc\download\ folder) and copy it to my dedicated server.

The dedicated server has a different steam user (don't want to run client and server on same machine, if at all possible). With that user I also subscribed to the Altis mission, but it doesn't end up in the mission list.

Anyway, we did get to play a couple of hours on your mod and I really liked it! Getting my upvote. Just hope I can some time get this working on my dedi. Will try again coming weekend.

@usbStuck - Sorry you're having trouble with it. A few things to keep in mind for troubleshooting:

* Try running the mission with no mods, either on the server or player side.
* Are you seeing a spawn screen at the start? If not, what happens if you sucide after the mission starts?
* Start the mission as a listen server (hosting from your PC rather than dedicated)

Finally if you do the above and its still not working, add me on Steam and I'll stop by your server to take a look.

Good luck and happy hunting!
