Outriders is the latest co-op looter shooter from Square Enix and People Can Fly. In Outriders, players find themselves sent years into the future against their will and are thrust into a war for the alien world of Enoch. You have to adapt quickly to survive the dangerous climate and unstable enemies that make up this new world, so that means getting comfortable with each of Outrider's four unique classes.

Choosing the right skills that match your playstyle is always a difficult decision, so let us help you make it that much easier. Here's every class skill and every skill tree found in Outriders.

Devastator

Devastator is a class that's perfect for those who are interested in close-range combat. The Devastator class gives you two passive skills. Your melee attack inflicts Bleed on all enemies within a short radius and you recover health from killing enemies in close range. Devastators also received three class traits:

  • Receive additional 15% maximum Health.
  • Increase Armor by 30%.
  • Every close-range kill heals you by 24% of your maximum Health.
