An interesting side-note for PC players is that controllers do work well with this game. Many people find driving via keyboard very difficult and annoying, it is possible to plug in a gamepad or controller (Xbox, PS3, third-party, etc.) and swap back and forth between the two inputs. It requires no setting changes to set aside the classic WASD for the shooter portion and pick up the controller for easier driving, and the game does not use a dominating feature like some games - this means it will accept input from both devices equally.
- Dodge apparently sponsored most every vehicle in the game, meaning they paid a lot of money to the makers of Defiance, and that Dodge is the only company to survive the end of the world.
