The Outriders “Appreciation Package” is seemingly bugged

While we appreciate free gifts from developers, in the case of People Can Fly, we’d really love it if Outriders didn’t break every time a new fix or feature was introduced.

The latest faux pas from the developer pertains to the Community Appreciation Package which was launched on Thursday alongside a few buffs to under utilised skills.

The package is meant to contain:

• A random god-rolled Legendary weapon which you have not previously obtained (on any character)
• Extra Titanium based on your character’s level
• A new emote, “Frustration” has been unlocked for all your characters.

People Can Fly states that if a player has found all Legendary weapons they will “be granted the rarest weapon for their class”.

First off – some Legendary weapons are rarer to find on some classes? This is news to us and many others in the community.

This developer really has done a terrible job of communicating how its game works and off-handed remarks such as this serve only to further frustrate an already frustrated community. It doesn’t help People Can Fly’s cause much that it continues to state that players simply don’t understand how the game’s mechanics work. Maybe you could, like, tell players?

Secondly – many players who have not found every Legendary weapon there is to find have reported receiving a duplicate of a weapon they have previously obtained.

This issue appears to be legitimate as People Can Fly is currently investigating this matter. We recommend waiting until People Can Fly makes a statement regarding a fix for this before claiming your package.

As for the buffs to skills you can read more about those as well as the buff to health from armour here. Yes, Reddit is People Can Fly’s official distribution point for news about the game.

As for other problems including the Legendary drop-rate and timed Expeditions, while the developer is looking to address these problems it doesn’t have a timeframe for this just yet.

Outriders continues to take two steps forward and one step back. It’s a pity because underneath it all, Outriders is a fun game.
