There is some fuckery in this game right now. Mob damage is way to high.
Yeah, and armor stacking doesn't seem to help that much. I was doing carries for two others on 15s pre patch with ease. Now I often die quite a bit when trying to carry one in a 14. It isn't just the elites either.

I replaced emergency protocol with that armor+resistance mod. Armor is like 107k, but only gives around 67% damage mitigation.

I still kill stuff fast with my decay build and getting ammo refunds on toxic kills is definitely nice when dealing with the low HP npcs. Stuff hits about the same as it did without using the emergency stance glitch - at least thus far I haven't noticed any massive spikes beyond normal. But normal damage at CT15 is still fucking big damage. I ran coliseum and on the final part got CC'd by something and gibbed by a berzerker before I could free myself.

I'm probably still done with the game for now until there is new content or they buff other skills. Time trials are dumb because they only favor high damage/high burst builds. Most of the legendary items are garbage (mods included) and kind of question what is the point of grinding them out since this isn't a live service game.

they definitely broke something. I never had emergency stance mod so never used that glitch and i'm dying on trash now in CTs 2 levels lower now. Done with this for now unless they unfuck their shit

Me and my gf finally got into this recently. The damage at times on bosses seems kind of absurd even at the start of the game. My gf constantly gets kicked out of groups and sadly shes easily irritable so her sailor mouth kicks into gear. Otherwise the game is mostly enjoyable - but im not interested in adding randos since network stability still seems like shit,.

There is something fucked with mitigation. It’s not just you guys.

Unfortunately I am not confident in PCF to save this game. It has potential but they don’t seem to care. They still have yet to replace the equipment lost to people with naked characters.

I still play with my kids and we have fun. But getting one shot frustrates everyone. My sons devastator is tanky but he still gets one shot at times. Which of course he gets all rage about.

Talk about going from having promise via the demo to completely shitting the bed at launch and beyond. Stopped playing after doing everything with a friend, there are too many issues with a lot of the game systems. Fucking with legendary drops was the last straw - we went from having 2-3 drop at a time to not seeing any for a dozen CT15 expeditions. No point if you don't get anything.

I'm currently at WT12. The game is okay, but the amount of shit they throw at you is sort of ridiculous. I don't mind a game being difficult, but when you're being shot from clear across the board, and the NPC's don't even miss, it's just retarded. It's like they have heat seeking bullets. I'm grinding out gear doing the expeditions, and have mostly level 46 loot, but haven't seen a legendary weapon drop in like 20 successful runs. I know it's random, but come on, gotta throw me a bone every once in awhile. I'll play for the rest of this week, but this game is definitely getting replaced when Resident Evil comes out. Not sure I'll pick it up again either unless they do something to make the end game more enjoyable.

Honestly, what I think happened

1) Game was clearly designed to be a live service game - it has all the elements of one
2) SE's 'Avengers' game, a live service game, tanked hard and lost SE money
3) SE got spooked and got soured on live service. Outriders would now not be a live service game

They did. From the very first announcement at E3 2019 they said it was drop in / drop out co-op (a la Borderlands) and then further clarified early last year that it would absolutely not be a GaaS. Avengers didn't get shit out until September.

Rather than getting spooked, I think it's pretty likely SE was responsible for the decision to make the game online only for no reason whatsoever, because that's the kind of retarded shit SE comes up with.

I would argue the one thing this game doesn't have going for it is difficulty. It took friends and I a couple of days to hit end game/beat end game and that was without finding some OP builds off of the internet. Legendaries were pretty useless compared to just getting nicely rolled epics with mods you want to use. No carrot to repeat content we blew through so quickly.

Don't see the game having any sort of future without massive content updates or some new game play loop that jacks up difficulty that isn't just bullet sponge npcs.

So much for any hope of them fixing their fuck up anytime soon:


If they're resorting to a player survey on reddit because they can't manage to fix the problem themselves, it's probably going to take as long to fix as the restoration of people's items. Or the mythical fix to their trash-tier gamepad controls that was supposed to be in the first major patch.

It’s looks like they restored the lost gear finally. With god rolls and some epics with a tier 3 mod already in them. It’s great.
