Outriders New Horizon Update Patch Notes – November 16, 2021

Headline Changes:

  • Expedition Timers have been removed

  • Four New Expeditions Added

  • Transmog System Added

  • Tiago’s Store has been Reworked

  • Legendary Loot Drops and Farming Information and Changes

  • Changes to Legendary Sets

  • Changes to Mods + Bug Fixes

  • Changes to Class Trees + Bug Fixes

  • Changes to Skills + Bug Fixes

  • The Stadia version can now also crossplay with all other platforms.

General Changes:

  • The video that plays when launching Outriders can now be skipped on all platforms apart from PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

  • The Eye of the Storm now includes a pick-and-choose Legendary item reward.

  • Added a Quick Mark functionality to Vendors.

  • Improved the readability of Mod descriptions, especially when viewed on a large TV or Monitor. This change means that certain information is now viewed on the Details window rather than in the Quick View window.

  • Reduced the volume of background audio of certain menu and loading screens.

  • Added a minimum damage limit for the Brood Mother’s “Perforate” ability. This will ensure the ability does not have too large of a disparity in its min/max damage output.

  • Changed the Heir to the Desert configuration so that it now plays like an Assault Rifle (as intended and described) rather than a Submachine Gun.

Bug Fixes General:

  • Fixed a progress blocker in the “Mentor” main quest which would prevent a cutscene from triggering.

  • Fixed a bug that would cause Alpha Perforo’s to break out of CC (such as the Frozen or Ash status effects) if they were staggered.

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the “Heart of the Wild” Expedition from progressing if a Venomous Perforo was the last enemy to die during one of the battles.

  • Fixed a bug in the “Chem Plant” Expedition that could cause the the player’s primary weapon to use the mods of their secondary weapon if they changed weapons while activating the lever.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the end of Expeditions summary screen to not display true values for the “Damage Blocked” stat.

  • Fixed a bug that could cause the FOV to reset itself under certain conditions on PC.

  • Resolved issues related to ingame invites not being received under certain conditions.

  • Various other bug and crash fixes.

Bug Fixes to Mods:

  • Fixed a bug that caused the “Moaning Winds” mod to deal different damage between Host and Client. It was previously triggering twice for Client players. The damage on Client will now match the damage on Host.

  • Fixed a bug that would prevent mods inserted in armor from properly scaling with the armors level if the armor was upgraded through Zahedi. This bug would previously fix itself after an area transition.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the “Even Odds” mod to stack 5 times, instead of the stated 3 times.

  • Changed the “Armor Boost” mod so that it now scales to the armor item it is inserted into, rather than scaling with the player level and stopping at level 30.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the “Emergency Stance” mod to not trigger if the damage instance that proc’d the mod also inflicted “Knockback” on the player.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the “Anomaly Mutation” mod to not inflict the Burn or Slow status as intended.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the “Bullet Absorption” mod to replenish 80% instead of it’s intended 40% of ammo.

  • Fixed an issue that could cause frame (FPS) drops if the “Damage Link” mod was using in combination with the “Pain Transfer” mod.

  • Fixed a bug that could cause the Pyromancer’s armor mod “Phoenix Force” to not increase Anomaly Power after consuming a status condition.

  • Fixed a bug that allowed Borrowed Time to stack it’s bonus infinitely if the “Armor of Eons” and “Short Term Loan” mods were combined and spammed.

Bug Fixes to Skills:

  • Fixed a bug that could cause the Tricksters “Hunt the Prey” ability to lock up under certain circumstances.

  • The Devastator’s “Impale” skill now no longer blocks Obelisks from continuing to charge while an impaled enemy is present.

  • The description for “Endless Mass” now also mentions the Slow status effect that it inflicts.

  • Fixed a bug that would prevent the Technomancer “Cold Snap” skill from freezing enemies if it was triggered while the player rolled off an edge.

  • Fixed a bug that could cause Technomancer Turrets to fall through the ground if they were thrown too low or too high.

  • Added the icon for the “Cryo Turret” skill to the Technomancer’s “Engineer” and “Senior Engineer” class nodes. These nodes were already affecting the “Cryo Turret” skill anyway.

Bug Fixes to Class Nodes:

  • Fixed a bug that resulted in the Pyromancer “Gifted” class node not granting it’s bonuses properly.

Outriders Update 1.15 Patch Notes Is Now Available for Stadia Players

  • Adds support for crossplay with the Windows Store version.
  • Fixes a bug that caused the Scrap Grenade and Grand Opening Mods to trigger on every shot.
  • We are hoping to also update Stadia in the very near future. This update would bring Stadia in line with all other platforms. We are still improving the Stadia crossplay experience so crossplay between Stadia and other platforms will only go live with our November update.

Important Notes

  • Please note that, as part of this patch release, we are updating some backend multiplayer infrastructure.

  • Fixed the Technomancer’s Borealis Monarch Set so that it will now correctly grant the 90% damage increase to any frozen targets

Note: The set bonus should apply to all frozen targets, no matter how they’ve been frozen.

  • Resolved an issue with the Devastator’s Statue Set and changed its description to match its behaviour

    The New Description is:

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

  • The Old Description was:

    • Using either Tremor or Golem increases Firepower by 100% and Weapon Life 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.

  • Fixed an issue that could cause low damage threshold mods to trigger immediately after death or after respawning.

  • Fixed an issue whereby players who are level 50 could appear as level 1 while in a party. Note that this issue may still be visible when in lobby.

  • Time Rift

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

    • Increased the DOT damage of the “A Little Bit of Pain” mod by 71% (from base 0.35 AP to 0.6 AP)

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.
An 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.
