Jumping into the Outriders demo ahead of the game’s launch on April 1 is worth it–not only is it a free way to see whether you’ll enjoy the game, but your progress carries over into the full experience. To that end, farming for powerful legendaries can ensure you have a leg up on your foes. Your best course of action for finding rare items is to grind captain and boss fights.
Before getting on the grind for legendary items, you need to reach a certain World Tier. World Tiers determine how difficult Outriders is, increasing enemy health and damage but offering higher tier rewards more often. You’ll unlock higher tiers in the demo just by leveling up. In World Tier 1-3, you won’t see any legendary drops because the legendary drop rate bonus will only be +0%. Once you reach World Tier 4, that jumps up to +10% and at World Tier 5, it’s +25%. That’s still not an ideal bonus, but that’s the highest World Tier you can unlock in the demo. So keep playing and leveling up until you unlock it–you’ll likely reach it just by playing through the demo and completing all of the available campaign missions and each of the four optional side quests at least once. From here, there are two ideal methods.
Fight The Captain
The first way to grind for legendary loot is to replay one of the aforementioned side quests, Payback, over and over. It’s a very short quest so it’s easy to repeat multiple times. You’ll first encounter this quest after reaching Outriders’ first hub area, Rift Town, and setting out on the story mission to deal with Gauss, an Altered and Outriders’ first boss battle. Partway through this mission, you can find a wounded soldier named Audrey Storm off on the side of the main path, near the Crossroads warp flag. They will give you the Payback side mission, which you can repeat as many times as you want by returning to Audrey.
