The Trickster is a close-range class that's fast, so fast that it can easily hit and run from targets before they know what happened. Choosing the Trickster class will allow you to deal damage and inflict Slow to all nearby enemies with every melee and recover health and shield whenever an enemy is killed in close range. The Trickster also receives these class traits:

  • Receive additional 5% maximum Health.
  • Active Shield grants 5% damage mitigation.
  • Every close-range kill heals you by 20% of your maximum Health and grants you 12% Shield.

Have some class, will ya

That's every skill and class tree found in Outriders. Outriders is a huge game, and you'll need to master your class skills, as well as utilize your weapon mods, armor mods, and every legendary weapon you come across if you want to come out on top. Outriders is one of the best cooperative shooters on the Xbox and is another excellent addition to Xbox Game Pass's growing library.
