Choosing your Outriders class is one of the first decisions you’ll need to make after you complete the prologue. In People Can Fly’s new sci-fi shooter they’re called Outriders paths, and present you with an ability set that you’ll be using for the rest of the game. Best pick wisely, then.
Each of the Outriders paths fulfil a different archetype. The Trickster is well-versed in teleportation and assassination, while the Pyromancer is a fire loving mage that, well, sets things ablaze. As we explain in our Outriders gameplay impressions, each of them come with a set of abilities that synergise with each other quite nicely. Each class also works well together, during our gameplay session we found inflicting stasis as a Trickster sets up a Pyromancer to use their fire strike. So each path should suit you if you want to play alone, or with a group of friends.
In this Outriders classes guide we’ll go over their abilities, unique healing traits, and advise you which is the best Outriders class. We should note that this guide is based on a preview event we attended, so things may change when the Outriders release date rolls around. If that happens, though, we’ll be sure to update this guide. There is also one more class that we have yet to play, and more skills unlock as you progress - so consider this a work in progress guide. Now that’s out of the way, read on to find out more about Outriders paths and the what we think the best Outriders path is.
