4 reasons why you should give Outriders a chance

By Dorrani Williams 9 April 2021 13:54 GMT If you don’t like Outriders I understand why, but there’s good there if you look for it.Outriders gives you so many reasons to dislike it, especially in the opening hours. Honestly, it seems like for every good thing it does, it gives you three bad in return. This is not a good ratio to have but I gave it a chance anyway, and ended up liking the game more than I expected to.Watch on YouTubeI approached Outriders with the lowest expectations I’ve ever had while playing a new looter shooter, (let’s just…

Outriders Chrysaloid | How to beat the forest boss

By this point in Outriders the Anomaly has thrown at lot your way, but now one of Enoch biggest beasts blocks your path: the Chrysaloid. While you’ve gone toe-to-toe with some giant bosses already – you’ve never faced anything quite as angry as the Chrysaloid so far. This is a multi-phased battle, just like the Molten Acari at the top of the volcano, and requires some careful tinkering with your loadout to defeat. At first, because its attacks are so different from the other enemies in Outriders, it can feel like the Chrysaloid is pretty unfair – but once you…

Outriders is full of great ideas and strange decisions

When Outriders gets it right, it gets it really right. Flashing forward into a gawking group of goons, one swish of an Altered arm sizzles bones out of bodies with a bolt of blue lightning. Falling back out of the hail of bullets, I take a second to recharge and drop a defensive ability while my others are on cooldown, popping off a few longer-range shots which explode into a volley of fireworks on impact. This is Outriders at its frenetic best. High-intensity action combining flashy and powerful abilities with gung ho, trigger-happy enemies in a non-stop slugfest – but…
