If you’re playing the Outriders and wondering what certain status effects do, this guide is for you. Fortunately, the developers at People Can Fly have included useful guides that explain exactly how each one works. However, if you’re still searching online like many of us, continue reading below.
Every Status Effect in Outriders
Before reading the table below, it’s useful to know that status effects are handled differently based on if they’re on you or an enemy. For example, standing still while you’re bleeding prevents you from taking damage. However, this likely doesn’t apply to enemies that have the status effect. Also, these details are taken directly from the Outriders.
|Bleed||Players take damage over time while moving, but they can avoid this by standing still. Enemies take damage equal to 2.5% of your ability power every .5 seconds, for 5 seconds.|
|Toxic||Players take damage over time, but they can remove the debuff by healing. Enemies take damage equal to 3.5% of your ability power every .5 seconds, for 6 seconds.|
|Burn||Players take damage while burning, but they can remove it by rolling. Enemies take damage equal to 3.7% of your ability power every .5 seconds, for 6 seconds.|
|Ash||A stun that players can break free from by using their melee attack. Stuns an enemy for 2.5 seconds.|
|Freeze||A stun that players can break free from by using their melee attack. Stuns an enemy for 3.5 seconds.|
|Vulnerable||Enemies take increased damage by 25% for 10 seconds.|
|Weakness||Enemies deal 30% less damage for 6 seconds.|
|Slow||Enemies have reduced movement and attack speed by anywhere from 30 to 75% depending on their resistance.|
Understanding Elite Resistances
The in-game guide explains that status effects may be stronger against enemies based on attributes, item mods, or class tree nodes. However, it’s still important to know status effects are weaker against elites due to passive resistances. This is especially true when using an ability or mod against an elite repeatedly. The duration of an effect becomes shorter and potentially non-existent if they become immune to it. Simultaneously, players can also use item mods to temporarily become immune to a status effect.
