If you’ve been playing OutridersThe new loot-shooter from People Can Fly and Square Enix, you’ve probably already been running your favorite loot loop. If you I do not have been playing, now is a great time to get on board because the action packed and super fun title is available almost everywhere * to play for free right now. (* Unless you’re on Stadia or Switch. Stadia and other non-Switch platforms will get the full release on April 1). So if you’re like me and find yourself on the brink of addiction to the promising game and optimistic for its future, you might want to keep looking for those legendary drops, if only for flex.
At the time of this writing, neither the streamer’s luck nor the gaming journalist’s credibility has gifted me with one of the few legendary weapons that People Can Fly have chosen to include in the demo. The fact that this high-end equipment is on the show absolutely it’s an interesting move; Usually you want your player base to move through this team late in the game to improve your characters overall. However, adding the possibility of legendary drops in the demo causes people to potentially play more hours than they would have after exhausting the relatively short introductory campaign, even spread over four classes and six customizable character slots. In other words, the clever tactic of adding Legendaries has the advantage of increased playtime and positive buzz through word of mouth, with only a slight downside that a fraction of the characters will have higher-level gear at launch. . That team drop percentage, however, is ridiculously low (no precise% numbers to quote yet) and only slightly higher in the demo’s maximum drop rate, World Level 5. Still, drops are possible. ; here’s how to do it.
Outriders Not only does it include legendary items, but it offers easily accessible story points and playable missions to fight for them. You’ll want to be World Tier 5 for all of these (easily achieved by just playing the game, leveling up your character, and slowly building your best team, even if it’s not Legendary) because this will give you the best Leggo Drops shot. . This approach should be the same no matter what class you choose, although Pyromancer might be the hardest / slowest to pull off, as current builds have less to do with single, focused damage. That will make more sense in a minute. (Personally, I’m running Trickster as my main, as the combination of Slow Trap, Twisted Rounds, and Temporal Blade makes melting Capitanes and even Altered Gauss easy.)
Here’s how you can farm legendaries:
Run the mission “Payback” (talk to Audrey storm in Frontlines) and grab the chest behind the Captain *
Reset your Story Point to “Confront the Altered”, travel an enemy-free route to get 5 loot chests, then melt Gauss for another loot shot; rinse and repeat
* “Payback” seems to be the least popular of the bunch because hooking the chest behind the Captain only gives you one chance at loot. Then, you will have to run everything again, including fighting through the first wave, as chests are a “once per mission” opportunity.
If you’re looking to kill captains, you’ll want to run “Terra Infirma”, currently the most popular loot farm. After fighting the first wave of soldiers, you will clear the way to the second wave. What makes this farm super fast and consistent is that you can run past the second group of enemies and meet the Captain where he emerges from a dark cave. Defeat him using the weapons and abilities you like the most, wait for him to drop the Golden Leggo and then let yourself be destroyed by a large number of mobs in the area. (You can shoot some Breachers and the like if you want a few more Greenies and Blues to fill your gear.) You will respawn just before running to the captain, allowing you to do it all over again in about 30 seconds for 1 minute each.
Of course, dying during a mission will make the game ask you if you want to change your equipment and it will also slightly lower your world level status; make sure you don’t dive into world Tier 4 or your loot% will drop a lot.
YouTuber/Twitch serpentine ImPwnstar he got over 15 legendaries at the start, with a total of 17 at this time; most of them were earned in this loot race. However, there is another farm option if you get bored with the Captain or just want a change of pace. I think EdEMonster scored a legendary drop from the chest race culminating in a replay of the boss fight against Gauss. Technically, you can catch 5 loot chests plus a sixth drop chance with a final fight against Gauss or you can run the fastest 3 chest route without any conflict.
So what exactly are we running these routes for anyway? Well, in addition to the style points to get Legendaries, you can use them in the main game since the progress is carried over. You can also break them down for mods, which can be used on higher tier weapons, once we get into the main game. It’s a great way to enjoy Outriders content, alone or with friends, and hone your skills and gear over the next month as we await its release. This is what you are looking for in those golden drops:
