To start crafting in Outriders you first need to advance the main story until you meet a character named Scientist Zahedi. You meet this character in the First City story mission. Once this mission is complete you unlock the ability to craft through Zahedi at the various camps throughout the game. Simply approach Zahedi and speak to him then select the “I need to upgrade my gear.” conversation option. This will open up the crafting screen. On the crafting screen you can do the following:

  • Improve Rarity: Improve the rarity of a gear piece.
  • Raise Attributes: Raise the attributes of a selected piece of gear.
  • Mod Gear: Change a mode for another one. Only one slot can be modded.
  • Swap Variant: Change a weapon’s variant for another one.
  • Level Up: Raise the level of an item to increase its primary parameter.

Each piece you place into the center of the screen will show you what Crafting Options are currently available for it. The different options require different gear inputs and also resources.. You can get both gear and resources by simply playing the game. The more of both you have the more crafting you can do in-game. Be sure to check out more of our Outriders guides.
