Before you start playing the game, you'd do well to read our Outriders tips. This covers some of the important settings to toggle like auto-loot pickup and being able to see your characters beautiful face at all times, along with things like how to heal depending on your specific class and where to get some early legendaries from.

Outriders guide: Length

How long is the game? It's a good question if you're still unsure about picking it up, but we've got the answer over on the Outriders length page. There's plenty of content to be had, especially when you factor in all of the side quests and end-game content you can replay over and over. Plus, if you want to level up all four classes, you'll be playing Outriders for months on end.

Outriders guide: Crossplay

Even if you've picked up the game on PlayStation and your best pals are on Xbox or PC – or any combination of those platforms – you can enable Outriders crossplay and journey across Enoch altogether. Read our guide to see the details on exactly how it works, along with an explanation on if cross progression exists in Outriders.

Want to play the game but don't want to fork out full price for it? We've got the details on the Outriders Game Pass situation across all Xbox platforms, PC, and even Android. Read this guide to find out what the deal is and whether it's included in an Xbox Game Pass subscription.

Outriders guide: Level cap

Nowhere in the game does it tell you what the Outriders level cap is, so we've got a guide that explains everything. There's a character level cap, then if you increase your World Tier you can get gear at a higher level, then in expeditions you can increase your Challenge Tier to get even higher levelled gear... it's a complex system but our guide breaks it down.

Outriders guide: Best class

Not sure what class to choose at the start of the game? All four are viable options that can deal, quite frankly, a ridiculous amount of damage if you spec into the right skill tree. Check out our Outriders best class guide for advice on which one to pick, as we've used all of them.

Outriders guide: Best weapon mods

Mods are what makes the world go round in Outriders, but which ones are the best? Selecting the right mods for your guns isn't an easy task but our guide to the best Outriders weapon mods includes five of the top choices, along with a list of all the weapon mods in the game and what they do.

Outriders guide: Best armor mods

Alongside weapon mods, there's also mods for your armor. Now most of the best Outriders armor mods are class-specific thanks to being skill based, but there are a plethora of tier two and three mods that any class can use and we've got five of the very best ones narrowed down.

Outriders guide: Legendary weapons

Want a look at some of the best guns in the game? Then the Outriders legendary weapons guide is for you. It's got all sorts, from close-range shotguns and SMGs to rifles and snipers that can one-hit-kill enemies. My personal favourite is the Grim Marrow - it packs one hell of a punch for my Devastator build.

Outriders guide: Legendary armor

Did you know there are 16 Outriders legendary armor sets in total? That's right – four for each class – which means that with five pieces of armor in each, there are 90 bits of legendary armor to loot. Of course, you can only get your class-specific ones depending on which class you're playing, but our guide lists all of them along with the set bonuses each one offers.

Outriders guide: Expeditions

Once you reach the end of the story, you'll unlock the end-game content. These are called Outriders expeditions. Want to know what they're all about? Check out our guide, though be warned, there are very minor spoilers for the end of the game contained within, because expeditions are essentially a continuation of the story, albeit with less weight on the narrative.

Outriders guide: The Outriders' Legacy

The lengthiest side quest in the game is The Outriders Legacy, which starts in Trench Town but doesn't come to a close until much later in the game, and sees you return to the Quarry area multiple times. Some players are getting confused with reaching the Quarry while others simply want to know the outline of the quest itself – our guide covers it all.

Outriders guide: Big Iron

Another side quest throwing a curveball at some players is the Outriders Big Iron mission, which takes place in the desert but unfortunately not in the town of Agua Fria (yes, that reference is also made in the article, Marty Robbins fans). Finding the three weapon parts for Channa and getting the guaranteed legendary reward is confusing, especially thanks to the shoddy in-game navigation, so read our guide for some assistance.

Outriders guide: Secret side quest

Did you know there's an Outriders secret side quest? You won't if you haven't made it to the Canyon of the Grand Obelisk region of the game yet, but even if you have progressed past there, it's easy to miss the Forgotten Chapel quest which offers another guaranteed legendary as a reward. Read our guide to make sure you tick it off the list.

Outriders guide: Yagak

The Outriders Yagak boss fights are some of the hardest in the game so don't worry if you are struggling to get past him. You encounter the chap twice during your journey, though he returns with vastly different abilities the second time around and is even tougher. Our guide outlines what moves to expect and how to dodge the relentless foe during the fights.

One of the resident guide writers around these parts, give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1 2020, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager 2020, clicking on heads in Valorant, or mowing down hordes of enemies in Outriders.
