Outriders’ legendary drop rate is getting doubled in the next patch

The loot grind in Outriders is about to get a bit easier. Developer People Can Fly says the co-op game will be getting an update in the near future that doubles the rate of legendary item drops and reworks the way Outriders handles duplicate legendaries.

In the next Outriders patch, People Can Fly says the legendary drop rate will be “increased by 100%,” meaning you’ll be getting legendary items twice as often once the next update rolls out. There are additional changes, too – for instance, the developer says it’s dropping the level brackets on legendary items, which means that when the update arrives, all legendaries will be able to drop at any level. Certain items, People Can Fly explains in the Reddit post, currently will only drop once you’ve achieved a certain level threshold, and that’s getting removed.

Since legendary drops are currently pretty rare in Outriders, it’s heartbreaking to discover that one that does finally drop is something you’ve already picked up. People Can Fly says it’s going to be implementing a new anti-duplication system in the new patch. With this new anti-dupe system in place, any legendary items that you already have in your inventory or stash will be re-rolled once when it drops. If you’ve already got that second item, well, you’re getting a duplicate.
