A recent patch was released that got rid of farming exploits for Legendary gear, but these methods are still valid.

How to farm Monster Hunts and Wanted Bounties in Outriders

Before trying to farm anything in Outriders, it is important that you figure out the World Tier bonuses. Starting from World Tier 04, players can gain bonuses to the Legendary drop rate modifier. Make sure you try to play on the highest World Tier as much as possible to maximize your chances of a good drop during farming.

  • World Tier 04: +130%
  • World Tier 05: +215%
  • World Tier 06: +285%
  • World Tier 07: +300%
  • World Tier 08: +315%
  • World Tier 09: +330%
  • World Tier 10: +345%
  • World Tier 11: +360%
  • World Tier 12: +375%
  • World Tier 13: +390%
  • World Tier 14: +405%
  • World Tier 15: +425%

Monster Hunts

Take a look at the map once you have made some progress in Outriders, and you will find paw icons that signify a Monster Hunt is afoot. Head over to the location, and interact with a pile of bones in order to begin this side activity.

After your interaction, a marked area will appear. Enter this particular arena and you will find yourself facing your target. Certain Monster Hunts require the elimination of enemy mobs before the main foe appears, others will have you destroy a barricade of sorts before the final showdown begins.

Although it can be tempting to even the playing field by killing the other mobs before focusing on the main boss, the key to farming Monster Hunts in Outriders is to leave them be. Your target is the main boss only. Eliminate them, pray for Epic drops, and then let yourself succumb to the remaining mobs.

Respawn, and you can do the entire run once more, with the boss returning for another round. Rinse and repeat, and you will have a dependable source of loot.

Another important thing to note is that you want to play at the highest World Tier to maximize your gain. However, dying will make you lose World Tier XP as well.

What to do if you accidentally complete a Monster Hunt

Perhaps in a frenzy, you might have eliminated everything in the arena. This will allow you to turn in the quest and get rewards from Noah Dembele, who can be found in Trench Town.

For those looking to rerun completed Monster Hunts in Outriders, you will need to find another player who has not completed it, and tag along. Alternatively, you can finish ALL of the Monster Hunts, and have Dembele start “another hunting season” to refresh all hunts at once.

Wanted Bounties

On the other hand, there is not exactly a way for you to farm Wanted Bounties in Outriders. Rather, the key to it is the mobs. More specifically, the mobs with those skull icons. These are more dangerous enemies, and at higher World Tiers, they can start dropping both Epic and Legendary loot.

Just like the Monster Hunt, focus on these enemies, hopefully get some good loot, then perish. You can then repeat the cycle and profit from the farming.

Should you accidentally kill the Wanted Bounty target, be sure to get your rewards from Ujio in Trench Town.
