Whether you’re planning on using it, selling it for Scrap, or dismantling it for valuable crafting materials, gettings lots and lots of gear is core to the Outriders experience. You’ll get gear naturally as you play through the game, but if you’re trying to get a ton of equipment in a short amount of time, there are some strategies you can use to collect plenty of gear fast. Here’s a look at what those strategies are.
Raise your World Tier for increased drop rates

While raising your World Tier is beneficial to your gear drop rates, you should avoid doing it if you’re not comfortable with your class, weapons, or overall build yet. This is because the difficulty of the game increases when you raise the World Tiers as well, and dying is a lot easier when you’re playing on tougher World Tiers. Dying reverses a chunk of your World Tier progress, so don’t be overzealous. Move to higher World Tiers only when you feel you’re ready.
Grind repeatable side missions

The thing that makes side missions so lucrative is that once you’ve got a solid build going and once you know what to expect from each mission, you can blow through them surprisingly quickly. This makes them very efficient time-wise, which is what we’re after.
Farm Expeditions in the endgame

Right now, most Outriders players agree that in general, the most lucrative Expedition Challenge Tier range to grind is 12-14. This is because good players can blitz their way through these Challenge Tiers if they know what they’re doing to get guaranteed Legendary gear drops as well as other rewards as well. If you’re struggling to beat Expeditions at this level quickly, try turning down your Challenge Tier to something more manageable for you.
