The Four Classes of Outriders

Players start the game with a custom character and they have the option to choose any of the four classes in the game. Each class has different skill sets and abilities that the players can use depending upon their play style. Every class has 8 skills which can be unlocked with experience and leveling up. Players can create six custom characters so that they can try each and every class. The four classes are Devastator, Technomancer, Trickster and Pyromancer.

The Devastator and Trickster are the close range classes in the game. While the Devastator has Tank skills, the Trickster is fast and can handle hit-and-run situations. Technomancer is the game’s long range class, which has support and healing skills. Players can upgrade and unlock certain skills by following certain upgrade paths on the skill tree. By following a certain path, players might miss out on various upgrades so they need to choose the correct path depending on their style of play.

The Pyromancer Fire Witch Build

The Pyromancer is the game’s medium range class that can use fire. Players can burn enemies, and they can also self-heal by giving damage to enemies. The class has 3 Explosive skills, 3 Ignite skills and 2 Immobilize skills. The 4 Explosive skills include Thermal Bomb, Overheat and Eruption. While the Ignite skills include Heatwave, Volcanic Rounds and F.A.S.E.R. Beam, the Immobilize skills include Feed The Flames and Ash Blast.

The Fire Witch is the Pyromancer’s most dangerous build. By following the Tempest Path branch of the Pyromancer skill tree, players can focus on skills like Overheat, F.A.S.E.R. Beam and Eruption. This Tempest branch heavily relies on increasing Anomaly power and decreasing the cooldown time. By trying out various combinations, this class can sometimes give high damage with the explosive skills and also from the close ranges with the Ignite skills, making it one of the more powerful builds in the game.

Players can try out the demo and check out some skills of the Pyromancer. The game releases on April 1, 2021 for PC, Xbox and PlayStation consoles.
