    The swap variant feature is a bit of a godsend. I'm a bit of a spray and prey merchant so get rather annoyed when I get a decent assault rifle that's single shot or burst fire.

    @paulboy81

    Burst fire variants do tend to have significantly higher damage though, try sticking with one for a bit you might like it.

    Yeah, Im not the greatest with numbers but I do think that, going back to DPS, youre better off firing slightly slower because the bigger numbers get, obviously, much bigger when damage multipliers are added to them.

    I think its why I never got on with the automatic shotgun, because a pump action with the right mods can one even one shot captains.

    But, yeah, its good that you can change it how you want. Its a really good system and means that nothing you pick up is actually useless. Even greens are decent because it costs virtually nothing to up them to a blue and add a mod to them if you pick up a particularly strong one.

    Oh I know the stats, don't ask me why I've just never been able to get on with burst fire rifles in games, ever. Not entirely sure why, it's not the damage or anything obviously, there's just something inherently unsatisfying about using them I find, can't quite put my finger on it. Like I said, bit of a spray and prey merchant me!

    Game is super stingy with the epics on world tier 4...

    Its great though. I'm feeling the progression that i lost with Destiny 2 eventually, every weapon or armour drop is a chance to try something new or bump up a "number". Its very diablo 3 in that respect.

    Level 16 now i think.

    It gets a lot more generous around level 19 or so I found. They start coming thick and fast eventually.

    First patch notes out. Bullet builds nerfed, there will be much crying on Reddit.

    Sucks about the nerfing, it makes the game fun as you get a good build and rip through enemies

    Had about 3 crashes on VCR xbox one. I really like how you can use different mods and powers as really is the best thing about the game, it really saves the game.

    I'm too lazy to read anywhere else, but can you play solo in this game?

    I'm okay with those nerfs, while I'll miss the insanity they bring I've not exactly specced for it and I'm already regularly hitting 25k a shot with my pump action shotgun.

    With not much effort I have a buff that means after a reload I don't use ammo for a while and it has a 9 shot magazine.....there's rather a lot of damage in a single magazine if I time it right.

    It's way above what I will ever hit with any of my other skills so I really can't see an argument against this nerf.

    @OtterofJustice You can, and for the most part I did until I hit the endgame but it will still require an online connection to play it.

    @OtterofJustice Just remember, don't play it as a cover shooter. Run and blast everything that moves and only go into cover when you want to reload. You'll have way more fun that way.

    Iím playing it as a cover shooter and enjoying it very much, take out the grenadiers then find cover and pick off the rest, it gets a bit hectic when an elite captain appears but I just retreat to cover, engage him then repeat. On world tier 7 now and itís not that hard 😊

    @Globalmeltdown I'm not saying you can't play it as a cover shooter, it just plays better when you don't play it as a cover shooter. Also once you get to the forest and beyond cover becomes increasingly scarce in places.

    Haven't read the patch notes but I really hoped they would buff other stuff to be competive instead of just nerfing all bullet skills. Ah well, at least it'll push me to try something new.

    Time to get some popcorn and read through Reddit!

    At my level, the only way I've been getting through various Elites, bosses etc on world 7 is running away, volcanic rounds and sniping. If I run in and try to big dick it, I get slaughtered.

    Holy fuck, the difficulty spikes are bullshit.
    Cruising along without any issues at all, late into WT7, smashing everything in my path. Cutscene ends, straight into a boss fight that just murders me over and over and over. Lost a WT in 5 minutes.
    Shit like this really ruins the fun I was having, because they canít scale the experience properly.

    I have noticed that, more specifically when it comes to the alien enemies and the bosses which have attacks with an insane aoe attacks that cover a remarkably large area. Add to that the flying enemies with unerring accuracy which really don't seem to work in this kind of game.

    Need to hit 30 quick!

    All who played Outriders between 31st March and 11th April are eligible for this appreciation package. Those who get an automatic inventory wipe restoration (there's a nasty bug doing the rounds that wipes player inventories) also get the package.

    Here's what your highest level character will get:

    A level appropriate legendary weapon.
    A level appropriate amount of Titanium.
    The emote "Frustration", which is otherwise unobtainable at this moment in time. "The irony here was not intentional but is fitting," People Can Fly said.

    Just hit 30 yay

    Difficulty spikes are usually, not always (shepherds boss can do one), to do with your build - particularly skills and mods, and making sure your gear is levelled

    This is quite a lot of fun. Not very far in, second region I think, just hit level 10. Trickster with a shotgun.

    Game Pass strikes again, as I wouldn't have played this otherwise.

    @cov

    I generally agree with this, but had to face a (story) boss who literally ignored all powers and effects, which was fun. Slow motion? Resisted. Interrupt? Ha ha no. Can't roll or run fast enough or far enough to evade either the AOE or melee.

    I'm probably missing something, but in the end I just put it on WT1 and face rolled him.
