Outriders players have discovered a way to get a near-legendary tier assault rifle by using the Earthborn Renegade DLC set.

The exploit was originally brought to light around Thursday, April 15. From there, players began to repeat, refine, and explore the possibilities using that same process. The components needed to perform it are simple-likely adding to its prevalence and quick rise to popularity. In fact, it has even been debuted on Twitch, with a handful of streamers showcasing exactly how it works.

The exploit relies on the Hell’s Rangers DLC, the in-game RNG system, and the patience level of the player. Essentially, the idea is to spawn as many rifles as needed until the ideal stats appear. We won’t go into further detail, but this exploit allegedly can result in a massively overpowered DLC weapon with high burst damage and equally impressive firepower.

Once properly upgraded and tricked out, the Earthborn Renegade assault rifle can easily carry players through difficult content and beyond.

Supposedly, the key trait that makes this weapon so special is its guaranteed “Bone Shrapnel” mod. This can potentially turn all defeated enemies into explosive shrapnel grenades—maximizing the damage and making it easier to clear heavily infested areas.

Outriders is currently available on the Xbox One, Series S/X, PlayStation 4/5, Google Stadia, and PC via Steam.
