Outriders Update 1.12 Patch Notes Notes

Patch Notes Notes

  • Crash Solutions
  • Improved multiplayer so that rubberbanding and packet loss are now reduced for players under 350ms
  • The Anti-duplication system will no longer consider your equipped items when checking if a dropped duplicate needs to be re-thrown.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Pyromancer thermische thermal bomb to lose all charges and cool down completely if a player was interrupted while sheathing the skill
  • Improved targeting of the Trickster’s Venator’s Knife so it now has to target a player’s intended enemy more consistently.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the Trickster’s Hunt the Prey to not turn the player to an enemy’s back if he aims at crosshairs immediately after activation
  • the repaired Borealis Monarch Set from Technomancer so it now correctly assigns the 90% damage increase to frozen targets
    • Note: The bonus set must apply to all frozen targets, regardless of how they were frozen.
  • Fixed an issue with the Devastator’s Statue Set and changed the description to match the behavior
    • The new description is:
      • While Tremor or Golem is active, increase the firepower by 100% and the Weapon Life Leech by 100% for you and your teammates
    • The old description was:
      • Using 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 kept longer.
  • Fixed an issue that caused mods with a low damage threshold to activate immediately after death or after respawning.
  • Fixed an issue where level 50 players could appear as level 1 during a party. Please note that this issue may still be visible in the lobby.
  • Fixed some out of sync subtitles

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

Note 2: “Investigated” means that we have successfully reproduced an issue in our development environment and are currently investigating the root causes of the issue. If we haven’t been able to reproduce a specific issue yet, it may not be listed here, but that doesn’t mean we don’t know about it.

  • State Stadia
    • Stadia has yet to be aligned with other platforms regarding fixes, bug resolutions, and crossplay support.
    • We continue to do this work to align all platforms, but don’t have a firm date yet when this will be possible.
    • We appreciate that this work is taking longer than expected and we apologize for this.
  • Matchmaking privacy settings can set themselves to Open without player input
    • Issue is being investigated and will be fixed in a future patch
  • Xbox login issues
    • Our latest patch has significantly increased sign-up times for the vast majority of players. However, a small number of players seem to be affected by a secondary issue, allowing them to use “alternate account login” workarounds.
    • We are investigating this matter and are in contact with some affected users to investigate their accounts to identify the issue
  • Mods and resources may be lost
    • This problem seems to be quite rare, making it very difficult for us to reproduce and identify the cause.
    • For anyone affected by this, we recommend contacting our Square Enix Support Team (, who now have the right tools to give you specific mods and resources that you may have lost. Our support team may also collect appropriate information to assist us in our investigation.

    • Issue is being re-examined
  • ‘Damage Blocked’ stat on expedition results screen sometimes appears inconsistently or abnormally low
    • Issue is currently under investigation
