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 In Outriders
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.
By Killing Enemies
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.
By Dismantling Armor
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 (aka free your inventory). Otherwise, you’ll sell them to get more Scraps.
By Selling The Gear You Don’t Need
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 Fast Farm Scrap In Outriders
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 to find three chests and run from one chest to another, 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 For Using This Outriders Scrap Farming Method
Obviously, some will think that farming Scrap using this method is not worth it. Except that 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
Outriders Main Quarry: All Loot Chests Locations Guide
Outriders Main Quarry is a main-quest Quarry area you will have to explore while playing the Expedition main mission and it includes three Loot Chests that you should find and claim.
The Outriders Main Quarry is one of the largest areas in the Quarry region and also the last one you’ll have to cover while following the game’s story.
Once you deal with the boss in the Main Quarry, you’ll be able to move to the next region; however, do not leave the Quarry without fully exploring all areas, especially Mining Town.
How To Get To Main Quarry In Outriders
To enter the Main Quarry, all you have to do is to track the Expedition quest.
The quest’s objective marker will lead you across the river near your main camp.
Make sure you activate the Riverbed Explorer Flag and also find Jabari Achebe nearby.
This NPC allows you to start the Dying Wish side-quest thus granting you access to the Mine & Refinery area where two Loot Chests can be found.
After you cross the river, head up the hill and you’ll see a gate.
The section behind the gate is known as the Main Quarry and your first objective is to collect more lithium for the filtration system.
Outriders Main Quarry Chests Locations
Without going into details on how to defeat all enemies here, make sure you grab the following chests as you advance through this area’s sections.
Keep in mind that there are three of them.
Loot Chest #1 – Near The Excavator
The first Outriders Main Quarry Loot Chest; is close to the excavator where the first lithium is found.
Kill all enemies, then grab the lithium, and then move right around the vehicle to spot the chest on the hill in front of you.
You can see it in my screenshot behind some rocks.
Loot Chest #2 – Inside The Cave
The second Outriders Loot Chest in Main Quarry is also the most accessible because is found in the same cave as the lithium; but in the second section.
It is basically impossible to miss.
Loot Chest #3 – Behind The Last Gate
Finally, we have the third one which is extremely easy to miss.
To get it first you’ll need to defeat all enemies in the next section, including the Behemoth and the Screecher.
Then get the final lithium for Zahedi.
Once you do that, go through the final gate, then turn left to spot it next to a pile of boxes or crates if you want.
And that’s it, friends. Now you know where to find the Outriders Main Quarry Loot Chests, in the video game developed by People Can Fly.
Outriders Mining Town: All Loot Chests Locations Guide
Outriders Mining Town is a side-quest Quarry area you will have to explore while playing the Wanted – Scalp King bounty mission and it includes two Loot Chests I will show you where to find in the guide below.
Similar to the Mine & Refinery area where we found the previous two chests, the Outriders Mining Town is a medium-sized area but the difference here is that once you deal with the Scalp King, you won’t be able to access it anymore.
As such, make sure you follow the guide below and claim both chests before exiting the region.
How To Get To Quarry Mining Town In Outriders
To enter the Mining Town, first, you have to start the Outriders Wanted Scalp King quest.
So, fast-travel to the Riverbed Explorer Flag or walk southeast from your Quarry Camp.
Now, locate the poster near Jabari Achebe, pictured below.
You’ll find it under a broken bridge.
Upon checking the poster, track the Wanted – Scalp King Hunter mission and follow the objective marker which takes you to the Mining Town on the hill nearby.
Outriders Mining Town Chests Locations
The area you’re about to enter is pretty straightforward with a lot of enemies to kill.
There are also several mini-bosses and obviously the bounty you’ll need to execute.
Without going into details on how to dispatch the enemies here, once you deal with them look for the following chests.
Loot Chest #1 – Inside A House
The first Outriders Mining Town Loot Chest; is in the first area, and it’s quite hard to find.
The moment you enter the region on your right side (as you look up the hill); you’ll see some stairs that go between two buildings.
Move that way but before going up the said stairs, take a right turn and check the house.
You’ll find the chest in my screenshot below.
Loot Chest #2 – On Top Of The Hill
The second Outriders Loot Chest is a bit easier but you’ll have to kill the Scalp King first.
Once you do that, you’ll find yourself in the final section of Mining Town.
Go up the hill, then turn right and you’ll see the chest in my image on a platform overseeing the town. It’s behind a house.
After you loot this one, don’t forget to return to Trench Town and claim your rewards from Ujio.
