While it was possible to farm legendary weapons and armor in the demo, adding these precious items to your inventory heavily relies on luck. Thankfully, if you've already bagged yourself some shiny items, these will also carry over to the full game.

I'm here to steer you in the right direction as you collect more gear. Here are all the legendary weapons and armor sets spotted in Outriders so far, including details on the mods equipped on each item, and how they buff your character.

Farming legendary items How to farm legendary weapons and gear in Outriders

While it's possible to farm for legendary weapons and armor in Outriders, the process also relies on you getting lucky. You can maximise your chances of finding the best items by choosing a higher World Tier, but it's important to remember that this also adjusts the game's difficulty. Here are the Outriders World Tiers and how they alter the legendary drop rate modifier bonus:

World Tier 01 (Story): +0 percent. World Tier 02 (Easy): +30 percent. World Tier 03 (Normal): +70 percent. World Tier 04 (Hard): +130 percent. World Tier 05 (Expert): +215 percent. World Tier 06 (Master): +285 percent. 

As you'd expect, the stronger the enemies you take on, the higher the chances of grabbing valuable weapons and armor. Early on in the game you'll encounter Captains, who are noticeably stronger than regular foes. While any enemy can drop ammo and gear, you stand a better chance of snatching a Legendary from a Captain.

Previously, you could find Legendary items in standard chests and pick up Epic gear from vendors while playing the demo, but this was disabled at the beginning of March. The best farming method pre-releases was to repeat early side missions, like Payback and Terra Infirma, and repeat boss fights to access the rewards chest afterwards.

As outlined in the recent Outriders dev update on Reddit, in the launch day build of the game there's no pressure to select World Tier 05 to grind for the best gear. "Legendaries will drop naturally over time as you push your world tier higher and get into Expeditions content".

Legendary weapons

Legendary weapons have unique mods that make them far more powerful than their standard counterpoints. They have additional benefits that'll give you an edge in battle such as increased critical and close range damage, Skill Leech, and sometimes even healing. Here are all the Outriders legendary weapons we've seen so far, with images (shared by @OutridersPlus on Twitter):
