Farming Outriders Scraps is easier than farming Legendary Gear, simply because in the video game developed by People Can Fly, Scrap is considered the local currency, and there are several ways to get this type of money. Nevertheless, having a valid Outriders Scrap Farming method is something that you’ll want in both the demo and final version of the game.
Thus, in the guide below, I’ll tell you how to farm Scrap in Outriders, where to find this currency, and how to use it. So, let’s start by understanding what Scraps are and how to use them.
How To Use Outriders Scraps
In Outriders, Scrap is defined as “Good quality screws and bolts. Local currency used to buy wares from vendors. Drops from human enemies, chest, and sold items.” This definition is pretty solid and should give you a good idea of how to use Scrap in Outriders.
Basically, this is the currency or the money you’ll need to buy various items from Vendors; however, you should not confuse Scrap with Crafting Materials such as Leather, Iron, and Titanium. Those can be farmed, too, but they have a different purpose.
Good, back to our Scraps now. Simply put, this currency is the one that allows you to buy better weapons, Gear, and everything else a vendor in Outriders has to offer. In the picture below, you can see one of the merchants in Outriders. Her name is Eva Lopez, and you’ll find her in your Rift Town Camp.
The Outriders vendors or merchants are marked on your minimap by a dollar icon. You can also notice that Lisa sells guns, and the Terrestrial Pioneer-2 Assault Rifle costs 1185 Scraps. It’s not cheap, but since we know how to farm Scrap, we can afford it.
These vendors will always ask for Scrap, and that’s why you need as much as possible. Obviously, as you progress through the game, the prices will skyrocket, and this brings us to the next section. How to get Outriders Scraps fast?
How To Get Scrap
Also, following the definition above, we can understand how to get Scraps in this video game. There are several methods, and we’ll detail them below because the game doesn’t tell you everything.
The first method is also the easiest one. You get Scraps by killing enemies. Human enemies, that is. Obviously, not all of them drop Scrap, but most of them do. Additionally, mobs drop fewer Scraps compared to mini-bosses and bosses. Or, simply put, a Breacher drops more Scrap than a Rifleman.
The second method to get Scrap in Outriders involves dismantling items; however, there is a catch here, and you have to be aware of it. First of all, we are talking about Common Armor or gray Gear, such as the Ragged Coat below.
The trick here is that if you dismantle a common piece of Gear in Outriders, you’ll get fewer Scraps compared to the amount you get by selling it. As such, the Ragged Coat above generated 15 Scraps from dismantling, while Gregor Ram offered 50 Scraps.
This means that you’ll dismantle your Gear only when forced to do so (a.k .a. free your inventory). Otherwise, you’ll sell them to get more Scraps.
By Selling Gear
This is the fastest method to get Scraps in Outriders and is self-explanatory. Whenever you have a piece of Gear you don’t need, bring it back to one of the vendors in your camp and sell it. Gregor Ram here is one of them, and you can mass sell your items by pressing R1 on your PlayStation controller.
Now, mark the items you want to sell by pressing R3 and then push and hold the triangle button.
By Looting Chests
Finally, we have the Outriders Chests, and here things become interesting because these can be farmed. So, again, whenever you find a Chest such as the one below, if you open it, you have a chance to get Scraps.
Most likely, you remember this from the Hounds’ Warehouse guide we covered earlier this week. There isn’t much to tell here, except for the fact that not all Outriders chests include Scraps. But they reset, which means that they can be farmed. That’s what you’ll learn to do next. How to fast farm three Outriders chests.
How To Farm Scrap
The following Outriders Fast Scrap Farming method is quite special and relies on the fact that chests reset. On top of that, it uses two main sources of getting Scraps, and it also gives you a chance to get Legendary Gear.
Basically, all you have to do is find three chests, run from one chest to another, and then reset them. Simple as that. Now, obviously, you won’t find Scraps in each chest, but you’ll find Gear, and Gear can be sold for…well, Scraps. So, as long as you can get unlimited Gear, you’ll get infinite Scraps in Outriders. Let’s see how this works.
- First, make sure you play on the highest available World Tier because you’ll get better Gear from the chests you’ll farm. Better Gear means more Scraps from Vendors
- In the Outriders Demo, finish the story, while in the final version, make sure you get to the point where you have to leave for the First City
- Now, click Options and Return to Lobby
- In the Lobby, go to Select Story Point
- Pick Rift Town, then Confront the Altered at the Tower
- Confirm the Story Point, then hit Continue Game
When you return to the game, in the first room, move forward and follow the stairs on the left until you see the pipe pictured below. Go right, and then turn right again to get the first chest or box if you want.
Loot it, then retrace your steps to the starting point and exit the building. In front of you, you’ll see another chest (pictured below).
Loot that one, too, then turn around and go right down the hill. Keep moving forward until you see a small entrance with some water, just like in my screenshot.
Head to the other side, and you’ll find the third chest. Now, return to the Lobby and repeat the same steps, but make sure you Confirm Your Story Point so the chests reset.
Advantages Of Using This Scrap Farming Method
Obviously, some will think that farming Scrap using this method is not worth it. Except it does, and there are several advantages I want you to be aware of:
- This method is really fast, especially if you play the game on PlayStation 5, where the loading time is reduced
- In less than a minute, you’ll get Scrap and 6 Gear Pieces you can sell for even more Scrap
- There is no combat involved, so your Gear is not important
- Although you’re farming Scrap, you also have a chance to farm Legendary Gear
- On top of that, you are not only farming Scrap; you are actually farming all types of Crafting Materials obtained by dismantling that Gear
- And finally, chances are this farming method will not get patched anytime soon
