1. What’s an Outlander and what can they do?

“Wake up, loot! Find stuff, loot!…”

Outlander is one of the 4 main classes in Save the World, with 18 sub classes, including 3 mythical Outlanders. They specialize in utilizing sharp-shooting bears, deadly shock towers, flying punches, and the ability to warp around the field. Outlanders can harvest resources faster and have chances to get double loot. Using Charge Fragments and Llama Fragments, we can either deal more damage or help resupply the team with resources.

TEDDY One of the Outlander’s abilities, a giant metal bear is deployed on the battlefield who shoots enemies within range for 15 seconds. He will NOT ignite propane tanks, if they explode your bear is not at fault. He will NOT shoot husks guarded by Shielder husks until they get close enough for TEDDY to be within the dome of the shield. Various Outlanders can buff TEDDY by either increases his range or damage. Collecting Charge Fragments will reduce the cool-down time and energy cost.

Shock Tower Another powerful ability that is used by some Outlanders that deploys a small tower for 3 seconds that shocks enemies and stuns them. They are great for swarms of husks and can instantly kill Shielder husks. Like the TEDDY, it can be buffed by certain Outlanders by increasing its duration and damage. Just like TEDDY’s, collecting Charge Fragments will reduce the energy cost and cool-down time.

Seismic Impact An ability limited to 2 of the mythic Outlanders. Punch the ground causing a shockwave to travel directly in front of you.

Llamas A treat for everyone! When an Outlander picks up a Llama Fragment, they can deploy a loot llama. With each hit, a random resource is dropped out, if it can be completely destroyed, an ore from that region can be obtained (Copper, Silver, Malachite, etc). They can also be buffed to increase resources, drop ammo, and double the ore.

Anti-Material Charge A flying charge used by some Outlanders than can be used to either instantly destroy cars/walls/trees and instantly gather resources from them. As with other abilities, certain Outlanders can buff this ability with either increased damage or increased distance. NOTE Many people have this misconception that it’s onlyused for farming materials. Think of it as a “poor man’s Dragon Slash”, it’s perfect for knocking down Riot Husks, leaving them vulnerable for attacking. It will also kill small groups of husks and can stagger larger husks. Don’t hesitate to use this ability to get yourself out of trouble when you’re surrounded by husks

Phase Shift allows you to instantly warp a few feet away. Can be used to jump a gap, get out of danger, or even used to save yourself from taking fall damage (use it just before you land and you can fall from the highest point and you won’t take any damage!). As with other abilities, some Outlanders can buff their phase shift with number of uses or even the ability to clear debuffs!

Focused Acquisition A passive ability that every Outlander has that increases chance to find double loot by 6%.

In the Zone A passive ability that every Outlander has, after 5 consecutive hits of our pickaxe, we get a buff to the damage it does by 24%. Meaning you can farm that much faster!

Keen Eyes A passive ability. While you’re “In the Zone”, you gain the ability to “see through walls” to see treasure chests. You’ll be able to see a shimmering glow where chests and ammo crates are, despite being behind walls.

2. What’s our role?

“I’m flyer than Marty, the life of the party…”

With our ability to phase shift around and insatiable desire for Charge Fragments, our initial job is to scour the map! Earning the Exploration Badge will earn your team extra experience points. Collecting BluGlo as we go and activating pylons as we find them; who doesn’t want those 20% buffs to shield/health/movement speed/building?! Don’t forget to save some BluGlo for the main mission and/or to boost the difficulty (boosting difficulty will grant bonus gold upon mission completion).

Since collecting resources is so easy for Outlanders, it would be nice to offer to donate to anyone building the base. Most people will thank you or politely decline. If/when I obtain a Llama Fragment while scouring the map, I personally bring it to the builder and drop it there and begin whacking away. When people hear a llama being chopped, they’ll come out of the woodworks (and come back from being AFK) to come get some materials.

PLEASE NOTE: DON’T BE A JERK WHILE DESTROYING THE LLAMA! There’s usually a scumbag who will circle around the llama and scoop up the mats even if they’re not contributing to building the base, DON’T BE THAT GUY!Upon completion of destroying the llama, I’ll usually phase warp away, leaving the mats for the builder. Regarding that precious ore…DON’T BE THE JERK THAT STEALS IT. When I play with my friends, unless the llama owner doesn’t need the ore, it’s theirs! RESPECT THE LLAMA, LOVE THE LLAMA!

Now that that’s been established, after you’ve powered up those pylons and have enough BluGlo to get through the mission and hopefully alerted everyone to the storm chest and completed that, head to the base. You can help finish up the base or craft some traps or build a trap tunnel (if necessary). When it’s go time, throw down your bears, shock towers, or turrets. Your abilities are going to be more powerful than the turrets, so I usually wait until my bear disappears before throwing out a turret while he cools down.

4. Support and Tactical

This section will showcase a list of heroes that will help boost your Outlander or which one that you can use to boost your hero!

Tactical perks that affect Outlander’s specific abilities.

Shuriken Master (Ninja)
Pressure Points – Anti-Material Chargenow slows enemy down by 30%

Sergeant (Soldier)
Phase Blast – Phase Shift now causes an explosion that knocks enemies away.

Commando (Soldier)
Grizzled Veteran – TEDDY lasts 5 seconds longer.

-While 5 seconds may not sound like a long time, in this game it is. One of my personal favorites, when paired with an Outlander that gains TEDDY duration boosts, will further extend his time and wrecking power!

-This is also gained from using the mythical Cobalt Commando Carbide Soldier (It’s been pointed out to me that Commando gives better HAD (Hero Ability Damage) than Carbide, so use Commando if you have him instead)

Electro-Pulse (Constructor)
Kinetic Punch- Increases knock back and impact of Anti-Material Punch.

Shock Gunner (Blockbuster exclusive Outlander)
Shocking Embrace- Increases the duration of Shock Towers by 2 seconds when placed with a Charge Fragment.

-2 seconds sounds like nothing at all, but when you consider that Shock Tower’s basic duration is only 3 seconds, that’s a 66% boost in duration.

Gunblazer (Horde Bash exclusive Outlander)
Locked and Loaded- Adds ammo to a normal Outlander’s llama.

Reclaimer (Winter and Spring it on exclusive Outlanders)
Bear Stare- TEDDY now shoots lasers from its eyes.

-Easily one of the best Support heroes in the game, not only boosts TEDDY, Shock Towers, and Anti-Material Charge damage, but also Turrets damage, and Adrenaline Rush now heals 20% more too!

-This Support ability is also gained from mythical Ninja Bladestorm Enforcer

Ranger (Outlander)

6.Working with Outlanders

“You are not a bear!”

So being an Outlander isn’t for you, what can you do to help?

-If you come across a Charge/Llama Fragment machine, go ahead and activate it. It’ll give you a temporary boost in movement speed and mark it on the mini map for the Outlander so they can collect it.

-If an Outlander comes up to you and drops a llama near you, go ahead and help them destroy it, chances are that they can’t destroy it by themselves. Depending on the situation, they may leave all the materials on the ground for you. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON’T BE A JERK AND STEAL ALL THE MATS WITHOUT HELPING, ESPECIALLY THE ORE! “But I helped them destroy the llama, if it wasn’t for me, they wouldn’t even have it!” If they choose to give it to you, that’s awesome, but personally I’ll take the first one, but any sequential llamas that I collect, I’ll offer up the ore to the team. The Soldier ability “Going Commando” can be used to instantly destroy the llama!
