How to Get Anomaly Shards in Outriders

Along with Leather, Titanium, and Iron, Anomaly Shards are a crafting resource in Outriders. You will receive them whenever you dismantle an item in the game.

In Outriders, higher-tier weapons can be upgraded with bonus attributes to be made even more useful in combat. These Attributes have 6 upgrade stages available, and Anomaly Shards are the resource used in Outriders to raise these bonus attributes through Crafting.

Each attribute in Outriders has its own crystal pool. A crystal icon next to an attribute in the item’s description shows which types of Anomaly Shards you’ll receive upon dismantling.

Don’t worry if you happen to be dismantling an item that you have previously raised the attributes of, since you will be refunded a portion of the shards invested in it.

Here’s a list of all Attributes you can raise via Anomaly Shards in Outriders:

  • Armor Pierce
