Outriders allows players to sell or dismantle their gear that they no longer have a use for.

Ah, the age-old question: do I sell this item or break it down for parts? Most games that feature a crafting or upgrading system grapple with this. Components are needed to build, improve, and sometimes even repair armor and weapons while adventuring. On the other hand, purchasing better weapons outright is by far the simpler option and can save the player time and frustration.

Outriders Sell or Dismantle: What's the Difference?

Ultimately, it depends on what players need at that moment.

Selling items nets Scrap, which serves as a stand-in for the game's currency. Scrap is used to buy better gear, parts, and upgrades—which can be pretty expensive. Items can be sold at any given merchant with the touch of a button. All players need to do is find one, approach to trade, and flip the option to "Sell" instead of "Buy." It's that easy.

Dismantling is a bit more complicated but also has its perks. Old gear can be broken down for parts and components. Depending on the quality and rarity of the item, the amount and type of pieces vary. The most important of these, of course, is Titanium, which is the core ingredient for upgrades. Additionally, modded gear adds the associated mod to the player's roster when broken down.

While Titanium is harder to come by than Scrap, both are needed to improve gear. Players no doubt know by now that gear is one of the life bloods of survival in Outriders. Good gear can add a distinct edge to a build that players desperately need.

If anything, players should focus on maintaining a balance between how much Titanium they need for their next upgrade and how much Scrap it will cost them.
