Another new addition that the Worldslayer expansion adds to Outriders is the new Apocalypse loot rarity. This new rarity tier is a rank above legendary and can apply to both weapons and pieces of armor.
Apocalypse rarity is not be confused with Apocalypse Tiers, although your chances of finding the former is influenced by the latter system.
What is Apocalypse Gear?
In Outriders Worldslayer Apocalypse gear is a brand new improved rarity tier of gear. The main draw of using it over Epic or Legendary tier weapons and armor is not so much better stats as you might expect.
What sets Apocalypse gear apart is the presence of a third mod slot. This new slot gives the items an extra modifying ability, a huge advantage over Epic and Legendary gear which only get two each.
Technically, Apocalypse items are variants on Epic and Legendary tier loot that you can find elsewhere in Worldslayer. It is worth noting that what also makes Apocalypse Gear special is that this extra mod slot cannot be swapped out for something else.
In Outriders, you can spend resources to mod your weapons. One of the ways to customize gear is to swap out mods on a weapon or piece of armor you like to better fit your overall build. You can apply this mix and match approach to the other two mod slots on Apocalypse gear, but that third slot is immutable. Good thing whatever ability winds up there tends to be pretty powerful.
You can modify and upgrade Apocalypse weapons and gear like any other piece of loot in the game. By going to a crafting bench or talking to the right NPC you can spend resources to power up Apocalypse gear by increasing its level. In addition to Titanium and Drop Pod Resources, these upgrades will also cost you a resource brand new to Worldslayer, called Anomaly Extract. This rare substance can be dropped from Elite enemies or by breaking down Apocalypse tier gear.
How to Get Apocalypse Gear
So now that you know what it is, Outrider, the only question is how to get it. Well, you have to wait till about halfway through the Worldslayer campaign for your first piece of Apocalypse loot. From there, Apocalypse variants of items will start dropping.
As you level up your Apocalypse Tier the chances of enemies dropping Apocalypse gear will increase. They will also sometimes appear in the reward boxes for getting to the next Apocalypse tier.
Once you complete the campaign, we find the best way to grind of Apocalypse Gear is to run Expeditions, either solo or co-op. These missions are best for farming.
