outriders mods

A huge Outriders patch just came out today, and it came with tons of new changes to the game, including mods, class trees as as well as skill changes. Head down below for a complete rundown of  the new stuff that came out Outriders update 1.16.

Outriders Update 1.16 – Mods, Class Trees, and Skill Changes in New Horizon:

Changes to Mods

  • [NH] The mechanics of Fortress have been reworked. The new description and effect is now:
    • Shots increase your current Armor and Resistance by 5%, stacking up to 3 times. At maximum stacks, the buff is doubled and additionally grants 30% damage increase for 10 seconds.
    • The cooldown between stacks is 0.2 seconds.
    • For more information as to why this was done, please see our discussion thread about it here.
    • Please note that following community feedback, the amount of stacks (from 5 to 3) and the cooldown between stacks (from 1s to 0.2 seconds) have both been reduced since we previously announced the changes coming to Fortress. These changes mean that players will be able to proc. Fortress faster and that that all weapon types will be able to proc it as well.
    • We have also buffed each class’s skill tree nodes that increase Anomaly Power. Should you invest fully into these, AP builds running Fortress will have a similar damage output to Fortress pre-change.
  • [NH] The Cooldown Mechanics of all mods are now “universal cooldowns”. Cooldowns for mods are now set to “per character” rather than per “mod instance”.
    • The main effect of this change is that it is no longer possible to cycle through and trigger the same mod effect within a very short space of time. In order to compensate for potential damage reductions as a result of this change, the below mods have all been buffed.

  • [NH] Fixed a bug that caused the “Even Odds” mod to stack 5 times, instead of the stated 3 times.
  • [NH] Changed the “Armor Boost” mod so that it now scales to the armor item it is inserted into, rather than scaling with the player level and stopping at level 30.
  • [NH] Fixed a bug that caused the “Emergency Stance” mod to not trigger if the damage instance that proc’d the mod also inflicted “Knockback” on the player.
  • [NH] Fixed a bug that caused the “Anomaly Mutation” mod to not inflict the Burn or Slow status as intended.
  • [NH] Fixed a bug that caused the “Bullet Absorption” mod to replenish 80% instead of it’s intended 40% of ammo.
  • [NH] Fixed an issue that could cause frame (FPS) drops if the “Damage Link” mod was using in combination with the “Pain Transfer” mod.
  • [NH] Fixed a bug that could cause the Pyromancer’s armor mod “Phoenix Force” to not increase Anomaly Power after consuming a status condition.
  • [NH] Fixed a bug that allowed Borrowed Time to stack it’s bonus infinitely if the “Armor of Eons” and “Short Term Loan” mods were combined and spammed.
