    Who is the best outlander?

    Hello guys I’m wondering which outlander I should use for dps and if there is one that has decent dps and decent mat farming skills at the same time. My characters are legendary trail blaster buzz, legendary vanguard southie, epic enforcer grizzly, epic shock specialist A.C., rare ranger deadeye, and rare Tedd shot jess. I’m wonder what the order of these guys are from best to least. Also which one has the highest dps, dps and may finding skills, and which one is completely useless and should retire or add to collection book. I’ve heard that Ranger is really good dps and pistols are good which him if that’s the case which pistol do you guys recommend.

    There's not an outlander that has great DPS and decent farming skills it's usually one or the other. But in terms of the best DPS outlander that's going to be Deadeye/Beetlejess, followed by TEDD SHOT Jess, then Fragmentfurry, but she'/he very situational as she/he needs a lot of mobs clumped up together. So if you're doing something like encampments then Fragmentfury can out DPS Deadeye, and TEDD SHOT. However,the best overall farmer is Pathfinder Jess and the best resource farmer as in gathering Wood, Stone, and Metal is A.C. Striker. But their DPS is ****, really.

    Hope that helps.

      Ranger is probably the best combination of both dps and farming, however he is only as good as the pistols he wields and is not worth using only as a farmer.

        Here are my two Outlander Setups:

        Setup 1:

        Main Hero: T.E.D.D. Shot Jess
        Support Slot: Ranger Deadeye (increases pistol DMG by 24%)
        Tactical Slot: Sub Commando Jonesy (increases TEDDY duration by 5 seconds)

        This setup is good if you want to have a long lasting Teddy who is decent at killing. You can snipe enemies and if you want to get more personal with the husks you can use a pistol.

        Setup 2:

        Main Hero: Ranger Deadeye
        Support Slot: T.E.D.D. Shot Jess (70% Critial Chance to Sniper Rifles)
        Tactical Slot: Sub Commando Jonesy (increaes TEDDY duration by 5 seconds) OR Sergant Jonesy (The End of Phase Shift causes a blast knocking enemies backwards)

        Ranger Deadeye has good pistol and phase shift perks so you can either use Sub Commando/Commando to make his Teddy less bad or Sergant to have a little blast after your phase shift. If you want to kill enemies from a higher position you can use sniper rifles thats why T.E.D.D Shot is in here.

        The weapons i'm currently using in both setups are:

        1. Neon Sniper Rifle (A really good Sniper in my opinion as it can detect enemies trough it's scope, pierces through multiple targets and deals decent damage)
        2. Bald Deagle (I think this gun has the highest single shot damage of all pistols)
        3. A melee weapon of your choice or a fast shooting pistol of your choice (i'm not 100% what i'll use in this slot so it's up to you to decide)

        Gadgets:

        Hover Turrer (After 4.0 this Gadget is awesome it's like a mini TEDDY and you can have two)
        Supply Cache (It's always nice to have some extra resources for you or your team)

        I hope i can help you with this!
        A lone Hunter.

          Hmm I don't know why you don't go Dbl Tedd Shot in you main setup. Meaning TED Shot as primary hero and for support and if you don' thave 2 ted shotts then I'd add in the Urban Assault Hunter or maybe Shrunken Master Sarah. Same goes for your second setup I think Trailblaster outlander will be better for support rather than TEDD SHOT.

          Thanks for the advice! It's all work in progress but i like to mix it up. In my first setup i play sniper 70% and pistol 30%, vice versa in my seconds setup. If i put Urban Assault in my Support than it's 100% sniper rifle. Same for my second setup if i put trailblaster in the support slot.
          But like i said it's not complete yet.

          If you're running an Outlander why would you need supply drops?

          Hover turrets are practically essential for everyone. I usually stick with Health boost, and i main Soldier. I leave that on because other classes don't have the healing ability that some Soldiers do. That and I'm also the kind of person who moves in to help people when they get in trouble and are low on HP.

        Ranger Main (Deadeyes or Beetlejess ... or another Ranger), then first support Trailblaster (70% crit dmg pistol), and you have an outlander with hard Pistol dmg, the others one is not that much effective, I use Sergeant but there is maybe something better. The hardest part now is to find pistol to fill all type of ammo and situation (or just get Judge and gg).

          I'm currently using ranger dead eye with a viper and a trasher both legendary with uber rolls, UAH and commando spitfire as bonus squad, I'm playing in canny valley on lvl 70 map and I'm 90% of the time first in dps score.

            I have a ranger and a fragment flurry; they plus tedd shot are currently the favorites for combat. I like ranger+ranger for maximum pistol damage, using an autopistol and a Judge, with commando spitfire in tactical. If you don't have any good pistols, go with tedd shot or fragment.

            Harvester outlanders (pathfinder, recon scout) have no gun or teddy/tower bonuses but are the best for chests and resources. They're there for farming easy missions where nobody will care about your **** DPS. Just don't bring them into encampment missions :/

              This exactly.. he does get an upgraded pick.. so you will be better at farming than soldiers/constructors/ninjas.. but you don't play deadeye for the farm.. if your not investing perkup on a good pistol you will still be lacking in damage compared to soldier..
              That being said.. ranger deadeye with the right pistols(invest that perk up) will consistently get top damage.. I can't remember the last time I wasn't on top..

                If you want 'well rounded' then it is TEDD Shot Jess.

                While the Ranger is better at direct combat, Trailblazer better at defense, and Pathfinder better at resource gathering - Tedd Shot has a good mixture of each which allows her to better fill a more generalized role of 'do it all'.

                  better at defence how? You stand in front of spawn and shoot everything down.. how you gonna do that with trailblaster?

                    Active defense using shock tower and teddy with added movement speed on player built floors.
                    running around inside a more traditional fort layout and tossing the turret out of windows for point defense... collect enough fragments and have the right kind of fortifications, and she can quickly respond and apply point defenses to directly counter amassing husks.

                    While obviously not nearly as good as the constructor for defensive structures - for the outlander class she is one of the better ones keyed for defending imo.

                      The key to defending is either A.. stalling or B.. dps.. if referring to her damage output is good for defending.. ranger deadeye is superior.. if your reffering to stalling.. it's just best left to a constructor.

                        There is a lot more to defending then just 'Stall' or 'DPS'...
                        just like there is a lot more to the individual facets of 'Stall' and 'DPS'.

                        For instance: The Trailblazer's Burst DPS is far higher then Ranger can physically achieve. When husks start to cluster around targeted objectives, the Shock Tower can start achieving it's highest potential damage output. Sure - the Ranger can achieve a far better Sustained DPS given his perks allow him better individual target damage output with Pistols.... but that cannot match the raw Burst DPS produced by the shock tower's chain lightning effect in it's optimal conditions.

                        While other Outlanders (Shock Specialist) can achieve an even higher damage output then the Trailblazer using the Shock Tower - The additional cool down reduction provided by Impossibility Matrix combined with the fact that they can use Both the Shock Tower AND TEDDY allows a far more flexible and responsive reaction to a shifting situation then any other outlander. Making them a better choice when it comes to quick moving reactionary defenses.


                        Also - Not every objective which requires you to defend for a portion of time can have a fort built around it in a timely manner... Such as Attacked/Besieged Survivors - typically the husks spawn in too close which instantly destroys most built structures, preventing the deployment of walls/Floor or BASE.


                        Lastly - the ultimate point was that Trailblazer is the best Defense Focused Outlander. Yeah, the Constructor is a better defender... but the constructor is also not an outlander.

                          i use Striker AC Outlander - I have Commando Jonesy in Support for extra headshot damage. and the St. Pattys day outlander in Tactical so teddy bear has lazer beams eyes.

                          I have pretty beast guns, and it is very rare if im not 1st or 2nd in DPS.

                          Mobility is very important to me. U cant deal damage if you are dead. Well i guess u can if u have traps and turrets out. but u get what im saying...

                          2 phase shifts and antimaterial charge is amazing. you will always have the most resources out of all of your friends, and still put up good numbers.

                            I am going to check out your setup. Sounds promising.

                          totally agree man!
                          im curious on how you would compare trailblazer and trailblaster?
