Outriders: The best build for Trickster

Trickster is arguably the most popular Outriders class and it features a deadly build.
Outriders: The best build for Trickster

Out of the four classes in Outriders, Trickster is the most popular choice among players. It features terrific skills that make playing solo and the endgame much easier than other classes, namely Devastator. 

However, just because Trickster possesses some great skills doesn’t mean that you still don’t need to know what build is considered in the upper echelon. There’s a set of skills and class points that you need to familiarize yourself with in order to be the best Trickster you can be.

Today, we’ll be going over the full guide for the Trickster class in Outriders, including the best skills and class trees to run.

The best skills for Trickster in Outriders

When determining what your skills should be for your Trickster class, we first recommend leveling up to level 22. This is when the last skill becomes unlocked and gives you complete freedom on the character. We also recommend trying out each skill in different combinations to see what works best for you. Your play style is going to differ from others and if you find a combination you like, run with that in Outriders. 

However, if you’re still searching for the best three skills to run, we have you covered.

For sheer damage, we recommend going with Temporal Blade, Venator’s Knife and Twisted Rounds. These three skills offer the most base damage possible and work in concert with one another. Although, as you level up and increase your World Tier, Temporal Blade becomes a bit underpowered and the enemies become harder to beat. When this happens, we suggest switching to Hunt the Prey. 

Hunt the Prey allows you to get the jump one enemy and also get yourself out of harm’s way when needed. As for the other two skills, Venator’s Knife is terrific for stopping enemy’s bullets for a couple seconds. When this happens, you can pop your Twisted Rounds for some free headshots and easy kills. 

Twisted Rounds is also great for dealing with Elite enemies. Depending on your mods, you can use two Twisted Round magazines to deal with Elites and as long as you aim for the head, you should be able to take them down in one go of Twisted Rounds. 

The combination of Venator’s Knife and Twisted Rounds is what makes this Trickster build great. The third skill can be a bit more loose but the other two skills should be set. 

The best class build for Trickster 

As for what you should spend your class points on for the Trickster build, we recommend going for the Reaver build. The last class node in this tree is Altered Executioner, which buffs your anomaly damage in close range by 10%.

This, paired with Twisted Rounds and Venator’s Knife, is a lethal combination. The class nodes along the way in the Reaver build are also terrific for buffing your overall anomaly power. This build will help players who are running solo as well as in the endgame. Although, the Assassin route is also great for solo players, as you can get behind enemies and not be in the line of fire as much without teammates to help.
