This means you can easily walk into a new class and start learning their skills, which can be helpful if you decide you’d rather try a different class after you’ve made your initial choice.
- The difficulty in Outriders is largely influenced by the world level. As you level up and explore you will unlock additional world levels starting from the level 0 you have at the start. Each consecutive world level will offer better chances of rewards, but more difficult enemies. If you’re having trouble, check your current world level to see if things can be lowered – and if you’re not lucky enough to find some good loot, level up!
- You can enjoy all Outriders solo, but be aware that drop-in co-op is also available for teams of 3 to complete more difficult challenges.
- Outriders includes the ability to use Cross-Play, allowing you to play with other people on different consoles. Once activated in the settings menu, you can request a cross-play game code to share with friends on other platforms so that they can join your team by selecting the option to Join a game using a code, then using the game code provided.
- Some side quests will reward you with in-game consequences, like opening a new merchant with a permanent discount. You can also replay these side missions as much as you want, which can be a great way to earn XP fast.

- Look for enemies that will try to throw grenades from behind. If you can shoot them quickly while they are standing, you can make them drop their grenade and explode.

- Each class has three main skill trees that change your playstyle slightly. Take the time to see which one has the skills that reflect what you like to do best, and note where you can double dive into other trees to acquire some. additional skills along the way
- You’ll earn 20 Class Points to put in your skill tree, so you won’t be able to choose everything at once. However, you can always reallocate your class points for free, so feel free to experiment!

Once you’ve unlocked the crafting, be sure to disassemble your blue gear as well, as this will unlock mods for your mod library, a fundamental part of late-game crafting.
- Remember to visit the World Tier and Accolades menus every now and then to claim rewards when you complete new milestones. These rewards can give you resources, currency, and gear, as well as exclusive customization items such as emotes, truck and flag customization options.

- Once you reach World Level 4, you will have a chance to get a Legendary Drop, either from a Loot Chest found in the world, or from a Weathered Captain or Boss. Keep an eye out!
