An Outriders' Guide to scrapping your Gear

Like any looter-shooter, Outriders is part looting and part shooting. That means you might need to know how to scrap some of the gear you've looted in Outriders if you're getting a bit full.

More often than not, you'll pick up items that are equal to or worse than your currently-equipped gear. That's just how looters work, annoyingly.

Thankfully though, they can still provide some value to you if you scrap them! Here's everything you need to know about that.

How To Scrap Gear

Firstly, it's important to know that you can actually "dismantle" and scrap gear from anywhere in Outriders. You don't need to head back to a hub to do it.

However, any Uncommon and Rare items are more likely to become things like "Iron", "Leather", or "Shards". Titanium is even rarer, but it might drop if you scrap some gear in Outriders.

You can always sell your items to a vendor, of course, but scrapping it can be more useful as you start finding Uncommon and Rare items more often. Ultimately, upgrading items is always better than buying them.
