Outriders: September 28 Update Changes Devastator Impale, Fixes Borrowed Time Revive Bug

Outriders Steam

A new update is now available for Outriders. Some of its highlights include a change to the Devastator’s Impale skill and a fix to prevent players from reviving others after using the Trickster’s Borrowed Time.

The Devastator’s Impale skill has been changed. Whenever an enemy is completely impaled, the system will now deem the target as dead even though the body hasn’t fully disappeared yet. This can help you to immediately take advantage of the zone an impaled enemy creates, granting you armor and health regeneration for several seconds.

Whenever you use Borrowed Time to teleport into an area to revive your allies, there is a bug preventing you from doing so. If you are a Trickster main, you know how this can be bothersome to you and your party. Thankfully, the developers at Square Enix have fixed this.

Another notable bug that was resolved in this update is the issue where the matchmaking privacy would default to “open” even if you set it to “closed.” This fix will hopefully reduce AFK matchmaking, where people you are teamed up with will just stand still and do nothing.

Patch Highlights

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the game to stutter when engaging Crawlers in battle during Expeditions
  • Added an AFK status for players on friends lists
  • Fixed a bug that could cause client shots to sometimes deal no actual damage to enemies
  • Further improved the visibility of the Brood Mothers Surge AOE skill limits
  • Changed the behavior of the Devastator's Impale, so that the game will detect impaled enemies as dead even before they disappear
  • The Devastator's "Reflect Bullets" skill will now protect from Sciathan projectile attacks
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the Pyromancer's Phoenix Nesling passive to restore 100% rather than 50% of Health while in Multiplayer
  • Fixed a bug that could cause players to be teleported back into cover if they used Thermal Bomb shortly before exiting cover
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent Devastator's from being able to consistently dodge if they had the Auto Reflect mod active
  • Fixed a bug that could cause shards invested in sidearms/second primary weapons to cause inconsistent behavior on the primary weapon
  • Resolved an issue that prevented secondary characters from picking up Journal Entries if they had already been collected on a different character
