KEY POINTS

  • "Outriders" is a cooperative role-playing third-person video game
  • The game experienced a series of server outages following its launch
  • Players looking for ways to set the game's "Auto Loot" system could find this guide useful

Following a series of server outages that happened since the launch of "Outriders," the cooperative role-playing third-person video game developed by People Can Fly,  an automatic "loot" system that enables users not to miss out on an essential drop is thrust back into the spotlight.  Although this feature is turned on by default in "Outsiders," there are a few things players should keep in mind while using the same.

How To Activate "Auto Loot" 

To activate the "Auto Loot" in "Outriders," players need to go to the Gameplay section of the Options menu and look for Auto Loot Minimum Rarity. Using the < or > arrow, players can increase or decrease the rarity of the feature. Pushing left will let players see the credits of the game.

When the rarity of the "Auto Loot" system is set to Common, the players' in-game character automatically picks up every item they find from Common up to Epic and Rare. However, a lot of players are complaining that even if they use this method, and tested every setting available on the Auto Loot Minimum Rarity, they still get the same issue. Their in-game character stands on top of a pile of loot collecting absolutely nothing.

"Auto Loot" Not Working

There is another way to solve this issue, however. Down on the D-Pad, there is a button in the game, which is intended to lower the quality of auto-loot for the long haul. For instance, if players set the Auto Loot Minimum Rarity to Legendary, pressing down on the D-Pad would let them pick anything of Epic rarity.

For now, players can simply press down the D-Pad on loot to collect them. Although this does not technically mean it is "auto," this is one known manual method to get hold of any item within the player's range, regardless of the item's level of rarity. This is handy when grabbing loot during firefights. It allows players to grab keys. 

On Twitter, "Outriders" devs say, "Pressing the H key on PC or down on the D-Pad manually triggers the Auto Loot functionality," allowing you to snag everything [in] the vicinity and keep on blasting." 

"Outriders" is now out. The game is available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 4, PS and Stadia.
