• The Techmonger set greatly increases the damage dealt by Technomancer turrets
  • This build scales well with high Anomaly Power and Status Power
  • The Desolator tree is perfect for any build that uses status conditions like Freeze and Toxic

The Technomancer’s Cryo and Blighted Turrets in “Outriders” were never meant for damage builds in the base game. They were normally used to buff weapon or ability damage through synergies with class nodes. However, in “Worldslayer,” these robotic guns can shred late-game bosses on their own if players have the right setup.

Here’s a turret-focused build for players who want to do some hands-off grinding in “Outriders.”

Gear and Mods

The Techmonger legendary armor set boosts turret damage by 10% for 10 seconds every time a Cryo or Blighted Turret is deployed. This bonus stacks up to five times for a max of 50%. The damage increase might not seem like much at first, but it does stack with other mods and effects.

Equip at least three pieces of the Techmonger set (preferably the helmet, chest and legs) and try to fit the following mods into the loadout:

Techmonger Set

  • Double Trouble
  • Anomaly Echo
  • Hazardous Modifications
  • Increase Damage
  • Improved Coolant
  • Enriched Anthrax
  • Radical Therapy
  • Shatter
  • Focused Discharge
  • Hail Shot

This mod list will maximize the damage of both turrets while converting Blighted Turret’s acid sprayer into a conventional firearm.

Class Trees

Players will want to invest points down the Tech Shaman tree. Make sure to get the following nodes for more damage, debuffs and cooldown reduction:

  • Gadgeteer
  • Exposing Toxins/Frost
  • Marked for Execution
  • Fracture
  • Overclocked

Since this will primarily be an Anomaly Power build, players can consider branching toward the Pestilence tree instead of going for Overclocked for a bit of hybrid damage.

As for Pax skills, the Dissection and Permanence nodes from the Desolator tree’s top branch synergy go well with this build since Blighted Turret will constantly be applying Toxic to targets.


The Fortress and Mage’s Rage combo will work well with this build since it relies on Anomaly Power. However, consider using a weapon that has a high Status Power roll so it synergizes with the armor set. The Omen mod can be an excellent third mod option if players manage to get an Apocalypse weapon with all three of these combined.

Alternatively, consider using other mods like Sanctuary, Shadow Comet, Firestorm, Stigmatized and Dimensional Rockets.
