Outriders update is now rolling out on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC. The game developer Square Enix also released the official Outriders patch notes for players. According to the official changelog, the latest Outriders update added various quality of life changes, tweaks, changes, and more.

Recently, the game was released with positive reviews. Unfortunately, since the release, players are experiencing several issues with the game.

Outriders Patch Notes (Upcoming)

Fixes and Changes
  • Will improve the multiplayer experience so that rubberbanding & packet loss should now be reduced for players under 350ms pings

  • Will fix the Technomancer’s Borealis Monarch Set and correctly grant the 90% damage increase to any frozen targets

  • Will resolve an issue with the Devastator’s Statue Set and change its description to match its behaviour

    • The New Description is:

      • While either Tremor or Golem is active, increase Firepower by 100% and Weapon Skill Leech by 100% for you and your teammates

    • The Old Description was:

      • Using either Tremor or Golem increases Firepower by 100% and Weapon Skill Leech by 100% for you and your teammates

    • The old functionality meant that the Statue set bonus could end after 8 seconds. Reworking this set means that the bonus can now be maintained for longer.

  • Will fix an issue that can cause the Trickster’s Hunt the Prey to not turn the player towards an enemy’s back if aiming down sights immediately after activation

  • Will improve the targeting of the Tricksters Venator’s Knife so that it should now more consistently target a player’s intended enemy

  • Will implement a change to the Anti-Duplication system so that your equipped items will not be taken into account when checking whether to re-roll a dropped duplicate

  • Will fix an issue whereby Players who are level 50 may appear as level 1 while in a party

  • Feed the Flames

    • The Ammo replenished by the Bullet Absorption mod has been increased to 40% (Previously: 33%)

  • Ash Blast

    • Ash blast has had it’s base skill cooldown reduced by 5 seconds, from 27.5 to 23.5 seconds

    • The buff duration of the Death Sentence mod has been increased by 3 seconds, from 5 to 8 seconds

  • Borrowed Time

    • Reduced the cooldown of Borrowed Time by 3.5 seconds, from 13.5 seconds to 10 seconds

  • Slow Trap

    • The cooldown of Slow Trap has been reduced by 10.7 seconds, from 30.7 seconds to 20 seconds

  • Time Rift

    • The cooldown of Time Rift has been reduced by 3.4 seconds, from 15.4 seconds to 12 seconds

  • Freeze Turret

    • The Hail Shot mod has had its SPF set to 1.5 (Previously: 1)

    • SPF controls how much this mod benefits from the Status Power attribute. This change effectively means that the damage increase provided by Hail Shot will increase by 50%, though the effectiveness of this improvement still depends on the character’s Status Power attribute.

Demo Update:
  • The Outriders Demo has been updated so that its fix list and improvements are now in line with our 22nd of June patch.
  • Important: The Demo no longer requires Square Enix Membership registration in order to play, so if you know anyone who was holding off the demo due to this reason, please do let them know.
Ongoing list of currently tracked issues:

Note 1: This is not an exhaustive list of things being worked upon. This is also not a list of patch notes for the next patch. Upcoming patches will address issues that may not be listed here.

Note 2: “Investigated” means that we have been able to successfully reproduce an issue on our dev environment and are currently looking at the root causes of said issue. If we have not yet been able to reproduce a specific issue, it may not be listed here, but that doesn’t mean we’re unaware of it.

  • State of Stadia
    • Stadia still needs to be brought in line with other platforms with regards to fixes, bug resolutions and crossplay support.
    • We are continuing to do this work on aligning all platforms, but do not yet have a definite date for when this will be possible.
    • We appreciate that this work is taking longer than expected and do apologize for this.
  • Stuck at 99% Accolade Progress
    • Issue being investigated
      • UPDATE: While our investigation is ongoing, we will attempt to manually trigger the missing accolades for all users who previously helped us investigate this matter.
  • Technomancers Borealis Set 90% bonus can stop working in combat

As mentioned in the patch notes, there is an additional underlying issue with this set that was only recently discovered. We are already re-investigating this matter in order to ensure that the set will be made fully operational again asap.

  • Matchmaking privacy settings may set themselves to Open without input from the player
    • Issue being investigated
  • Xbox problems related to signing in
    • This is one of our top priorities and something we are continuing to investigate. This patch may well help with the issue, but we are continuing to monitor it.
  • Certain enemies, especially Alphas, may break out of Frozen CC as soon as they are damaged
    • Issue being investigated
  • Game stutters when multiple Crawlers are on screen, in particular during certain Expeditions
    • Issue currently being investigated and will be resolved in a future patch
  • Certain Mods not working, in particular when you’re the client during multiplayer sessions
    • Issue under review following multiplayer improvements
  • Players dying while a shield is active

Issue currently being investigated. Rather than shields not properly mitigating damage, this issue may be caused by (either) the UI not catching up properly or it may be a case of certain shield mods continuing to proc their shield after death has occurred under certain edge cases.

Example: A player continually generates shields and their death prevention mechanics are already on cooldown. They are then hit by enemy damage waves that deplete both shields and health at a greater/faster rate than the shield can regenerate in that window, leading to cases of player HP reaching 0 for a split-second before another chunk of shield is added.

  • Trickster’s Hunt the Prey does not turn player towards an enemy’s back if aiming down sights immediately after activation
    • Issue currently being investigated and will be resolved in a future patch
  • Trickster’s Venathors Knife may target a wrong enemy
    • Issue currently being investigated. This appears to be due to a delay when the skill changes targets.
  • Devastator skills may have inconsistent damage output, particularly when using Bleed & Moaning Winds combo.
    • Issue currently being investigated and may be resolved with the next patch.
  • Devastator Armour mod “Despair” doesn’t increase Anomaly Damage consistenyl.
    • Issue currently being investigated and may be resolved with the next patch.
  • Devastators Statue Set bonus ends after 8 seconds (which is not stated in the description)
    • Issue currently being investigated and will be resolved in a future patch
  • Journal entries/pick ups not appearing on secondary characters
    • Issue being reinvestigated
  • “Damage Blocked” Stat on Expeditions results screen occasionally appears inconsistently or abnormally low
    • Issue currently being investigated
  • A cutscene during the “The Mentor” Questline may not trigger, meaning players cannot progress past this point
    • Issue currently being investigated
    • Temporary Workaround: In your lobby, change your story checkpoint to an earlier one, then re-attempt this quest.

Outriders Patch Notes (June 10, 2021)

  • Community Appreciation Package
    • The Community Appreciation Package is here and everyone who has played Outriders to-date will receive it!

Your most experienced character has been granted:

  • A random god-rolled Legendary weapon which you have not previously obtained (on any character)
    • If your inventory if full, please check your stash for the Legendary weapon.
    • If both your inventory and stash are full, the Legendary weapon will appear when you next free up an inventory space and restart the game.
    • If you have already previously found all weapons, your character will be granted the rarest weapon for their class.
  • Extra Titanium based on your character’s level
  • A new emote, “Frustration” has been unlocked for all your characters.
    • A game restart may be required for it to appear.
  • Balancing:
    • Applied a number of buffs to Armour and Player Skills.

Today’s changes focus primarily on buffing underused skills and improving player survivability via Armour rebalancing. This is only an initial first pass, based on the mass player data that we’re seeing in our analytics. If something has not been mentioned here, do not fret. Work is already underway for upcoming balance passes, which will look at other topics of focus, including legendary drop distribution.

We are also aware that Timed Expeditions remain a point of contention regarding balancing and that they are fundamental problem for many players as their timed nature can drive a too heavily DPS focused meta.

Addressing the root cause of this issue is something that will take a longer time. This is not something we will be able to address as part of the immediately upcoming patches, but we are working on this issue and are continuing to look into what is feasible in the long term.

Fixed the bug that was causing the inventories of certain players to be wiped. While today’s patch is intended to prevent the issue from continuing to occur. The restoration process is run via our server database and does not require a patch to be implemented. We will have news of this very soon.


  • With this new patch, some players may occasionally encounter multiplayer connectivity issues followed by inventory items being momentarily invisible. This is a known and only temporary behaviour that is part of our three-step inventory safeguarding measures.
    • Restarting your game or waiting a few minutes and then restarting your game should make your items appear again.
  • We aim to address the occurrence of these edge cases in a future patch.
  • If you do encounter a wipe that occurs after installing the patch and is not resolved following a game restart,

Outriders 1.05 Patch Notes (March 8th, 2021)

PC & Console Platforms:

  • Once platforms have been updated to the same patch version, cross-play across platforms will become viable again
    • EDIT: 09.04.21 – 19:05 UTC
      • With the release of this patch, Crossplay between PlayStation and PC is now possible.
      • Crossplay between Xbox and PC/PlayStation has been temporarily disabled until the Xbox patch has released.
      • Crossplay between consoles and PC will be fully restored once the Xbox patch has gone live.
  • Overall stability improvements for the matchmaking service
  • Crash Fixes
    • Will Fix a multiplayer crash that could result in client players having their inventory wiped
    • Will fix the crash when completing the “A Bad Day” side quest.
    • Will fix the crash that occurs in No Man’s Land when your language is set to Spanish (Yes, we know. Video game code is a magical thing).
    • Will fix crash on launch issues
    • Will include many more “random” crash fixes
      • We are confident that these fixes will address the majority of crashes reported, as there are only a handful of root causes but the crashes they generate appear in a number of places.
  • Will fix the HUD disappearing in certain cases
  • Will fix bugs that interfere with players re-spawning in multiplayer Expeditions
  • Will fix bugs with players getting stuck on geometry (including when using Gravity Leap) or falling out of the world.
  • Will change the default matchmaking setting from “Open” to “Closed”.
    • You will still be able to manually change this setting to “Open” through your game settings
    • This change will prevent players from joining games where the host didn’t intend to play in multiplayer. It will also cut down on AFK lobbies
    • This will also help improve matchmaking times, as the queues will be less likely to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of constant matchmaking requests generated by “open” games.
  • Many other minor fixes and improvements

PC Specific:

  • Will Fix a performance issue where GPU is not being fully utilized. This should help with stuttering and DX11/12 issues
