There are four unique classes in Outriders, and if you’re looking to play a tanky character, the Devastator is an ideal choice. By utilizing the Seismic Shifter path in the skill tree, you can mitigate a ton of damage while constantly keeping yourself and others buffed. It’s an excellent class for teamplay but also viable for solo play. Here’s a look at the best Devastator tank build in Outriders.

Let’s take a look at our version of the best Devastator tank build in Outriders, including the skills, class tree, gear, and mods.

Best Skills for Devastator Tanks

Here are the three skills we’ll be utilizing for the Devastator tank build:

  • Golem: Damage reduced by 65% for eight seconds
  • Reflect Bullets: Reflect all projectiles at enemies.
  • Impale: Hit enemies with large spikes from the ground, inflicting Bleed. Lethal damage results in the enemy getting impaled, granting bonus armor and health regen to nearby allies for nine seconds.

The goal of a tank is to soak damage, and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing with the reflect bullets ability. We’ll also be focusing on having high damage mitigation and Armor, so we’re tough as nails and never die. Finally, we want to buff up that impale skill to kill enemies and permanently buff our group.

Best Weapons, Armor, and Mods for the Devastator Tank Build

As far as Armor goes, you’ll want to try and hunt for the Seismic Commander’s Helmet. It’s a Legendary Armor, so there’s not much you can do in the way of farming it. It comes down to chance. But, if you can get your hands on this one, it’s a game-changer.

You can go with something like Golem’s Limb pump shotgun or the Absolute Zero assault rifle for weapons. Finding these comes down to luck, so in the meantime, focus on using a Light machinegun, Assault Rifle, or Shotgun with high close-range damage and life leech. You’re going to be getting up close and personal, so optimize for close-range damage when you can.

Reflect Bullets is going to be one of the most critical skills in our Devastator build. For that reason, go with mods like The Strongest First, Blood PrimerAuto ReflectBullet Acceleration, and Extra Time. Pumping up this skill to optimize damage and healing from Bleed will help you melt bosses quickly.
