In Outriders, opponents are apt to overwhelm you unless you use your talents to their full potential. As a result, knowing what each status does is useful because you know just how much harm you’re doing to your opponents. One of the important status effects is the Weakness effect. So today let us look at the Weakness status effect in Outriders, to understand it better.
What is Weakness Status Effect in Outriders?
Weakness in Outriders is a status effect when dealt with on enemies, reduces the amount of damage you take by 30% for 6 seconds. Weakness can also be inflicted on you by enemies, then you deal 30% less damage to enemies than usual for the same 6 seconds. There is no known counter against this status effect.
Weakness is most effective when used against bosses that have high damages per attack. Since you can use it on groups of enemies before going in for an attack, it’s good for getting an upper hand on the battlefield. Weakness, like other status effects in Outriders, is added through mods to gears, and skills. You should also spend Class Points on skills that can help you increase the effectiveness of your Weakness effect. To make this status effect, your build’s focal point, go to Dr. Zahedi and using the crafting menu to craft mods that concentrate on it.
