Outriders legendary weapons explained

All of Outriders legendary weapons consist of a base weapon type - assault rifle, shotgun and so on - with two mods that add additional effects, one of which will be Tier 3. These effects can deal more damage, boost player healing, make enemies more vulnerable, slower, explode and plenty more. The combination of base weapon type and mod effects usually indicate a pretty clear way to use the weapon to best effect, so always check the mods and what they do to ensure you're getting the best from it. 

Assault Rifles

Outriders legendary weapons: Absolute Zero

Absolute Zero is, unsurprisingly, one of the cold themed Outriders legendary weapons. It's an assault rifle that inflicts a freezing effect on enemies and makes them more vulnerable. 

Variant: Sharpshooter

Mods:

  • Ultimate Freezing Bullets - Shots inflict Freeze on enemies.
  • Improved Vulnerability Bullets - Shots inflict Vulnerable on enemies, which has a cooldown of four seconds. 

Outriders legendary weapons: Heir to the Desert

This burst-fire legendary assault rifle is another gun that makes shots deal extra damage over time, thanks to the Sandstorm mod. Vortex Chamber helps keep enemies trapped in said sandstorm.

Variant: Burst

Mods:

  • Sandstorm - Shots conjure a sandstorm, dealing damage over time.
  • Vortex Chamber - Reloading weapon inflicts slow on enemies previously damaged by this weapon without reloading.

Outriders legendary weapons: Inferno Seed

Combine this burst-fire legendary assault rifle with any mods that affect critical hits and you suddenly become a critical hit monster. If you can be accurate enough to get them consistently...

Variant: Burst

Mods:

  • Wrath of Moloch - Critical hits cause an explosion, dealing damage and inflicting Burn on enemies within a radius.
  • Brain-Eater - Critical shots do not consume ammo.

Outriders legendary weapons: Master Tool

Dome of Protection means that the Master Tool legendary assault rifle is especially good against any enemies that can fire back at you, rather than versus Perforos or Maulers.

Variant: Sharpshooter

Mods:

  • Dome of Protection - Killing shots summon a bullet-stopping dome for 5 seconds. Cooldown of 5 seconds.
  • Perpetuum Mobile- You instantly replenish your magazine if you kill an enemy with 30% or less ammo remaining in your magazine.

Outriders legendary weapons: Thunderbird

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Ultimate Storm Whip - Shots cause lightning to hit enemies and deal damage. 
  • Striga - 30% of critical damage is returned to the player as health. 

Outriders legendary weapons: Time Ripper

The Time Ripper legendary assault rifle is all about slowing enemies down so you can target critical hits easier, thus dealing increased damage. Similar to Inferno Seed, except enemies are slower, not burned.

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Ultimate Stiffening - Shots inflict slow on enemies.
  • Gravedigger's Frenzy - Critical shots increase your Critical Damage by 50% for 5 seconds.

Outriders legendary weapons: Voodoo Matchmaker

This legendary assault rifle is focused on damage and best used against groups as it links enemies so that they share damage. It also makes whoever you hit more vulnerable so you can hurt them more even when they aren't linked.  

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Ultimate Damage Link - Shots link up to three enemies and share 30% of the weapons damage and 10% of their Anomaly Damage dealt. 
  • Vulnerability Bullets - Enemies hit become more vulnerable. 

Light Machineguns

Outriders legendary weapons: Damascus Offering

It might feel counter-intuitive, but Damascus Offering is the best gun for those using skill builds. It focuses on dealing damage based on your Anomaly Power, so you'll only be firing it whenever your skills are on cooldown.]

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Claymore Torrent - Shots damage 4 enemies within a 3 meter radius with Anomaly blades, dealing damage.
  • Anomaly Enhancement - Receive a passive Firepower boost equal to 30% of your Anomaly power.

Outriders legendary weapons: Grim Marrow

Probably one of the most recognizable Outriders legendary weapons, this is a light machinegun that can slow enemies down and deal extra damage via explosive singularities generated by kill shots. Good for dealing with crowds of enemies. 

Variant: Stablizing

Mods:

  • Singularity - Kills generate a singularity that when destroyed deals 913 damage to enemies within a six and a half meter radius.  
  • Improved Stiffening - Enemies you hit are inflicted with a Slow effect, with a cooldown of four seconds. 

Outriders legendary weapons: Roaring Umbra

The Roaring Umbra legendary LMG in Outriders is all about dealing serious damage to any enemies that get too close to you. Devastators especially can make serious use of this gun.

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Kinetic Stomp - Shots create a seismic shock around you, dealing damage in a 5 meter radius. Cooldown of 3 seconds.
  • Bleeding Bullets - Shots inflict Bleed on enemies. Cooldown of 8 seconds.

Outriders legendary weapons: The Reaper

Another legendary LMG that is generally just quite good, The Reaper makes sure practically every other bullet you fire will inflict weakness on enemies. Death Chains is also one of the top weapon mods in the game for general damage, especially on fast-firing guns.

Variant: Suppressing

Mods:

  • Ultimate Weakening Bullets - Shots inflict Weakness on enemies. Cooldown of 1 second.
  • Death Chains - Shots entangle an enemy with chains, dealing damage over 3 seconds.

Pump-Action Shotguns

Outriders legendary weapons: Aerie Master

The Aerie Master shotgun immobilizes enemies by lifting them into the air using Time Rift and also increases the chances of inflicting critical damage. As Outriders legendary weapons go it's all about getting in close and hammering enemies. 

Variant: Breach

Mods:

  • Weightlessness - Aerie Master fires bullets that inflict Time Rift on enemies which lifts them into the air for five seconds. 
  • Critical Point - This increases the your chances of a critical damage by 15%.

Outriders legendary weapons: Anomaly Effigy

One of the less interesting legendary shotguns, Anomaly Effigy makes enemies explode whenever you kill them, which deals damage to enemies within a radius. Great when there's loads of small buggers, not so much for taking down an elite.

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Concentration Blast - Killing shots cause enemies to explode, dealing damage multiplied by the maximum number of enemies within a radius around the original target.
  • Weakening Bullets - Shots inflict weakness on enemies.

Outriders legendary weapons: Body Snatcher

The Body Snatcher mod that comes with the legendary pump-action shotgun is a wonderful mod, but isn't great on a shotgun, although it is a lot of fun to use. So if you get Body Snatcher, we'd recommend scrapping it then applying the mod to something long-range.

Variant: Breach

Mods:

  • Body Snatcher - Killing shots teleport another enemy to the place where the previous one died. Works within a specific radius of the target.
  • Soul Devourer - Killing shots regenerate points of your health.

Outriders legendary weapons: Darkness Charmer

Darkness Charmer is one of those weapons that allows you to keep firing no matter what, consistently dealing serious damage. Since you're highly unlikely to miss with a shotgun, this is one of the better legendaries on the table.

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Grand Opening - Landing a hit with the first bullet in a magazine creates a powerful explosion, dealing damage in a radius.
  • Perpetuum Mobile - Instantly replenish your magazine if you kill an enemy with less than 30% ammo remaining in the magazine.

Outriders legendary weapons: Enoch's Blessing

Another legendary weapon that doesn't have a specific focus and is instead more generalised, Enoch's Blessing is best used when playing co-op because killing shots restore health to all players, rather than just the wielder.

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Life and Death - Killing shots create a blast that restores a percentage of health to players.
  • Gravedigger's Frenzy - Critical shots increase your Critical Damage by a percentage for a duration.

Outriders legendary weapons: Golem's Limb

Golem's Limb is an Outriders Legendary pump action shot gun that both protects the user with a Golem effect and boosts your ability to leech health. It's definitely a weapon to pull out when you're expecting to take a lot of punishment. As far as Outriders legendary weapons go this is almost a support option.  

Variant: Standard 

Mods:

  • Golem Rising - A killing shot gives you three seconds of protective Golem effect. 
  • Vampire - Killing shots boost your Leech skill by 15% for 20 seconds. 

Outriders legendary weapons: Paxian Blessing

This pump action shotgun is an Outriders legendary weapon that's all about healing you. It restores part of your health that stacks for each enemy killed between reloads and boosts your Leech ability to extract more health from killed enemies.

Variant: Standard

Mods

  • Life Stock - Reloading restores Health for each enemy killed since your last reload without changing your weapon.
  • Vampire - Killing shots grant a temporary boost to ability leech.

Outriders legendary weapons: The Guillotine

If you're fighting a bunch of smaller enemies, The Guillotine is another great option with two mods that deal some serious radius damage thanks to explosives.

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Radiation Splash - Reloading causes a small explosion that inflicts Vulnerable and deals damage to enemies within a 5 meter radius.
  • Minefield - Killing shots spawn explosives around your target, each deals damage in a radius.

Outriders legendary weapons: The High Roller

The High Roller is aptly named thanks to the Clip Roller mod which allows you to reload with less than half of the magazine remaining. It also means you don't need to rely on accuracy because after a kill, all ensuing shots will be critical hits.

Variant: Breach

Mods:

  • Embalmer's Rage - For a time after a killing shot, all shots will be critical shots,
  • Clip Roller - When your magazine has less than 50% ammo left, you can roll to quickly reload all your equipped weapons.

Automatic Shotguns

Outriders legendary weapons: Deathshield

Deathshield is all about keeping you alive so if you're rocking around with a lot of armor and health, you'll get the most out of this epic looking automatic shotgun.

Variant: Narrow

Mods:

  • Fortress - Receive a percentage damage bonus based on your armor.
  • Striga - A percentage of Critical Damage is returned to you as health.

Outriders legendary weapons: Funeral Pyre

Want to command the skies? Funeral Pyre sort of lets you do that, because every single shot (with a three-second cooldown) calls down a comet which deals damage to enemies in a radius. Combine that with enemy resistances being reduced and bam, you've got yourself a heavy hitting wombo combo.

Variant: Slug

Mods:

  • Shadow Comet - Shots call down a comet, dealing damage to enemies within a radius.
  • Resistance Breaker - Shots decrease your target's resistance.

Outriders legendary weapons: The Anemoi

Another gun that lives for the radius damage, The Anemoi has a relatively small clip of just 10 shots. That works well with the Moaning Winds ability, which deals damage around you whenever you reload.

Variant: Narrow

Mods:

  • Moaning Winds - Reloading creates a strong blast around you, dealing damage to enemies in a certain range.
  • Anomaly Surge - Critical shots spawn an Anomaly energy blast that deals damage in a certain radius.

Outriders legendary weapons: The Bulwark

This is almost a buffed version of The Anemoi above, because it uses the next tier of Anomaly Surge, called Ultimate Anomaly Surge. However, reloading isn't as powerful here – instead, critical shots may not consume ammo. Personally, if I had both, I'd scrap The Bulwark and replace Anomaly Surge with Ultimate Anomaly Surge on The Anemoi.

Variant: Slug

Mods:

  • Ultimate Anomaly Surge - Critical shots spawn an Anomaly energy blast that deals damage in a certain radius.
  • Clip of Amalthea - There is a percentage chance that critical shots do not consume ammo.

Submachine Guns

Outriders legendary weapons: Fatal Symbiont

A very interesting legendary weapon indeed, Fatal Symbiont only works with a highly specified build thanks to the Dark Sacrifice mod. If you angle your loadout towards this gun though, then you can become seriously powerful indeed. Also, it looks horrifying.

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Dark Sacrifice - During combat, your weapon drains up to a percentage of your maximum health, in exchange for a percentage weapon damage bonus.
  • Bleeding Bullets - Shots inflict Bleed on enemies.

Outriders legendary weapons: The Daimyo

The Daimyo is all about your shots dealing massive damage and inflicting status effects. Every shot will strike enemies with lightning and slow them.

Variant: Tactical

  • Ultimate Storm Whip - Shots bring down lightning on an enemy dealing damage.
  • Improved Stiffening - Shots inflict Slow on enemies.

Outriders legendary weapons: The Migraine

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Ultimate Bleeding Bullets - Shots make enemies bleed. 
  • Bomb's Ahead - Kills make enemies into anomaly bombs that explode and inflict damage. 

Outriders legendary weapons: The Wicker

Got a build that relies on the Ash effect? The Wicker is the gun for you. Every shot will inflict mutliple enemies with Ash simultaneously, so you can chain together the effect.

Variant: Standard

Mods: 

  • Ultimate Ashen Bullets - Shots inflict Ash on enemies.
  • Ricochet - Shots ricochet to another enemy within a radius of the initial target.

Double Guns

Outriders legendary weapons: Amber Vault

The Amber Vault is one of the few Outriders Legendary weapons we've seen so far that's a double gun, which means it's literally two guns stuck together. It's got a high fire rate and damage output. It also uses Killing Spree to increase it's damage output further and Brain-Eater to help save ammo, as critical shots don't use ammo.

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Killing Spree - Killing shots increase damage by 30% for this weapon for 30 seconds. Bonus deteriorates with time and stacks up to 5 kills.
  • Brain-Eater - Critical shots do not consume ammo.

Mods:

  • Ultimate Toxic Bullets - Shots inflict Toxic on enemies.
  • Perpetuum Mobile - Instantly replenish your magazine if you kill an enemy with less than a certain percentage of ammo left in your magazine.

Outriders legendary weapons: Shelrog's Excrescence

Other than excrescence being an incredible word, this legendary double gun is all about the Burn effect – excellent for any Pyromancer players. You can ricochet shots that inflict burn to more enemies too, as long as the enemy you shoot at first is substantially weak enough.

Variant: Burst Fire

Mods:

  • Ultimate Burning Bullets - Shots inflict Burn on enemies.
  • Hot Blood - Shots pass through enemies whose Health is below a percentage, ricocheting to a number of enemies within a certain radius and inflicting Burn.

Sniper Rifles

Outriders legendary weapons: Icarus

Mods:

  • Ultimate Bone Shrapnel - Critical shots detonate the enemy's bones and turn them into shrapnel that deals damage and inflicts Bleed on enemies within a certain radius.

  • Damage Link - Shots link enemies sharing a percentage of their Weapon Damage and Anomaly Damage dealt.

Variant: Standard

Mods:

  • Strings of Gauss - Shots link enemies in a radius of the target and deal electric damage to them.
  • Soul Devourer - Killing shots regenerate Health.

Outriders legendary weapons: Lucky

This is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most badass weapon in the game. It should be the reward for completing the Big Iron quest, because you would quite literally have a Big Iron on your hip. Anyway, the Lucky legendary revolver ups the chance of a critical shot and makes it so every critical shot ricochets to more enemies and deals double the base damage of the weapon. Crazy.

Variant: Standard
