Outriders Update 1.12 – Patch Notes (Today, August 12)

Patch Notes

  • Crash Fixes
  • Improved multiplayer so that rubberbanding & packet loss should now be reduced for players under 350ms
  • The Anti-duplication system will no longer take your equipped items into account when checking whether to re-roll a dropped duplicate.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Pyromancer’s Thermal Bomb to lose all charges and enter full cooldown if a player was interruped while casing the skill
  • Improved the targeting of the Trickster’s Venator’s Knife so that it should now more consistently target a player’s intended enemy.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Trickster’s Hunt the Prey to not turn the player towards an enemy’s back if aiming down sights immediately after activation
  • Fixed the Technomancer’s Borealis Monarch Set so that it will now correctly grant the 90% damage increase to any frozen targets
    • Note: The set bonus should apply to all frozen targets, no matter how they’ve been frozen.
  • Resolved an issue with the Devastator’s Statue Set and changed its description to match its behaviour
    • The New Description is:
      • While either Tremor or Golem is active, increase Firepower by 100% and Weapon Life Leech by 100% for you and your teammates
    • The Old Description was:
      • Using either Tremor or Golem increases Firepower by 100% and Weapon Life Leech by 100% for you and your teammates
      • The old functionality meant that the Statue set bonus could end after 8 seconds. Reworking this set means that the bonus can now be maintained for longer.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause low damage threshold mods to trigger immediately after death or after respawning.
  • Fixed an issue whereby players who are level 50 could appear as level 1 while in a party. Note that this issue may still be visible when in lobby.
  • Fixed some out of sync subtitles

    • The cooldown of Time Rift has been reduced by 3.4 seconds, from 15.4 seconds to 12 seconds

Ongoing list of currently tracked issues:

Note 1: This is not an exhaustive list of things being worked upon. This is also not a list of patch notes for the next patch. Upcoming patches will address issues that may not be listed here.

Note 2: “Investigated” means that we have been able to successfully reproduce an issue on our dev environment and are currently looking at the root causes of said issue. If we have not yet been able to reproduce a specific issue, it may not be listed here, but that doesn’t mean we’re unaware of it.

  • State of Stadia
    • Stadia still needs to be brought in line with other platforms with regards to fixes, bug resolutions and crossplay support.
    • We are continuing to do this work on aligning all platforms, but do not yet have a definite date for when this will be possible.
    • We appreciate that this work is taking longer than expected and do apologize for this.
  • Matchmaking privacy settings may set themselves to Open without input from the player
    • Issue being investigated and will be resolved in a future patch
  • Xbox problems related to signing in
    • Our latest patch significantly increased Xbox sign in times for the vast majority of players. However, a small number of players appear to be affected by a secondary issue, which can cause them to do “alternative account sign in” workarounds.
    • We are investigating this matter and are in touch with a few affected users to investigate their accounts in order to identify the issue
  • Mods and Resources may be lost
    • This issue appears to be quite rare, making it very hard for us to reproduce it and identify it’s cause.
    • For anyone affected by this, we recommend getting in touch with our Square Enix Support Team (, who now have appropriate tools to be able to grant you specific mods and resources that you may have lost. Our support team will also be able to gather the appropriate information to aid us in our investigation.
