As you progress by the sport, you’ll begin discovering rarer and higher high quality gear that may include added advantages and mods to enhance your probability at survival. These will seem sparsely at first, however by the point you attain the First Metropolis, you’ll in all probability have collected a couple of.
So, it may be a bit of shocking on the finish of Salvation questline that you could now entry the Outriders crafting menu by Dr Zahedi. And it may be much more shocking to be taught that it is really a fairly difficult affair. However don’t fear should you’re confused, as this information will break down all the pieces you are able to do within the Outriders crafting menu.
How Crafting Works In Outriders
Whenever you first begin to Zahedi and open up the crafting menu, you’ll see a number of choices alongside the display’s proper. Enhance Rarity, Elevate Attributes, Mod Gear, Swap Variant, and Stage Up. Outriders doesn’t clarify what every of those means till you begin experimenting with them, and even then, you possibly can nonetheless really feel a bit of at midnight.
Every impacts your tools in another way, so we’ve damaged down precisely what every one means beneath. To do something to your tools, although, you’ll want assets first, essentially the most fundamental of that are iron and leather-based. Iron might be collected from metallic deposits discovered glowing within the sport world. Leather-based might be picked up from the defeated wildlife of Enoch. It’s also possible to get iron by dismantling weapons and leather-based from disassembling armour.
Titanium, a better tier useful resource used to degree up and enhance the rarity of your gear, is principally harvested from dismantling epic or legendary gear, however you possibly can generally discover it by defeating elites.
Shards, the final useful resource to gather, is solely discovered by taking aside your outdated weapons, so be sure you’re doing that repeatedly and never simply promoting it off to the retailers.
To place it as merely as attainable, bettering the rarity will increase the merchandise’s color rarity in query. Essentially the most fundamental objects (white) can’t be improved on this method, however you wouldn’t wish to waste the assets on them anyway. Inexperienced will turn into blue (uncommon), and blue will turn into purple (epic). Epic and Legendary weapons can’t have their rarity improved.
Bettering the rarity does greater than merely change the background color, although. It is going to additionally enhance the first stat for the merchandise too. This will probably be its firepower for a weapon, and for armour, it’s armour, oddly sufficient.
On high of that, bettering the rarity may also add extra mod slots to the merchandise. You’ll even be provided three random mods to fill the slot, however you possibly can at all times exchange them within the Mod Gear menu. Bettering the rarity of an merchandise prices leather-based for armour and iron for weapons, in addition to some titanium as you get to the upper tiers.

Blue rarity objects and above could have at the very least one mod slot, which affords a further bonus or impact when you’ve got the merchandise in query geared up. These can differ wildly, and the armour units even have class distinctive mods that can be utilized.
However should you don’t like the choice you’ve at present obtained, you possibly can exchange them within the Mod Gear menu. It prices leather-based for armour and iron for weapons to switch a mod.
You accumulate mods by dismantling objects which have mods connected. Whenever you dismantle a mod for the primary time, you’ll be capable of add it to as many objects as you want to sooner or later. That makes it very value your whereas to dismantle objects you’re not utilizing with good mods so you should use them sooner or later. Simply do not forget that mod results don’t stack, so there is no such thing as a level in having the identical one on two totally different objects geared up in your character.
Presumably essentially the most complicated title within the Outriders crafting choices is swapping the variant. Nevertheless, it is really actually easy.
As you might have seen already, some weapons have totally different firing kinds than others. Some assaults and submachine weapons fireplace in burst rounds, whereas others are totally computerized. Some shotguns solely have three shells earlier than reload, and others have six and so forth. What you won’t have seen is that these are dictated by the variant and might be modified on this menu.
So, if you end up utilizing a burst fireplace weapon if you actually wish to unload your whole clip without delay, use the swap variant choice to do the trick. It’ll price a little bit of iron, however it will possibly actually provide help to discover essentially the most optimum weapon to your playstyle.
The final possibility on the Outriders crafting menus is to degree up your merchandise. Equally to bettering the merchandise’s rarity, doing it will improve the merchandise’s firepower or armour every time you do it. Clearly, although, it doesn’t change the rarity itself.
As a substitute, it will increase the merchandise’s degree. You gained’t be capable of enhance the merchandise’s degree past your personal degree, and every improve will price leather-based or iron and titanium after a sure degree. Levelling up the weapon may also reroll the power of the attributes connected to the merchandise. This isn’t at all times going to be for the higher, so it does turn into of venture if the numbers are already good in that regard.
An merchandise’s degree dictates what number of attribute bonuses it does get, although, so generally upgrading an merchandise will add a brand new attribute to it in addition to rerolling the property already there.
