Outriders – Amber Vault Review (Legendary Double Gun) and Trickster Build

Amber Vault is an awesome double gun in Outriders which is great for all classes. This one comes with Killing Spree, where you get a massive increase in damage allowing you to tear through enemies whether you’re in the campaign or the endgame expeditions. Today I am going to look at Amber Vault, the stats, the mods and also how I got it as well as put together a build to work with this legendary double gun.

Amber Vault is a Legendary Double Gun. Double Guns are a primary weapon in Outriders. Double Guns have three variants; Standard, Demolisher, and Burst Fire. Amber Vault is your standard variant of the double gun. Looking at the stats we have a clip size 60, RPM 750, Reload 2.7s, Crit Multiplier 125%, Accuracy 76%, Stability 79% and Range 50m. The Special Stats include Armor Pierce, Healing Received and Close Range Damage.


  • Killing Spree: Killing shots increase damage by 25% for this weapon for 20 seconds. Bonus deteriorates with time and stacks up to 3 kills.
  • Brain-Eater: Critical shots do not consume ammo.

The two mods that dropped on the gun make this a pretty special legendary weapon, with Killing spree’s increase in damage for 20 seconds, which is a long time in battle. Also, Brain-Eater is very good, where critical shots do not consume ammo. This is going to work out well for skills that focus on rounds like Twisted Rounds or Volcanic Rounds. Anything you can do to extend the magazine makes these much more powerful. It’s also good to have Brain-Eater in your mods collection, if you want to break down the weapon and put this on your favourite gun then you can.

How To Get Amber Vault

Getting Legendaries are randomised in Outriders, so what works for you may not work for everyone else. I got mine to drop from me from the final boss encounter in the mains story campaign. Once you have finished the main campaign you can buy legendaries from Tiago with Drop Pod Resources, he can be found in your main camp. To get drop pod resources you have to farm Expeditions, the endgame activity. Not that Tiago’s inventory is random for every player. Doing the Expeditions on higher difficulty will get you legendaries as well as Hunt and Wanted missions back in the main campaign. Every 10 you’ll get a Legendary weapon, plus the chance to reset the quest, meaning if you want to grind for Legendaries then you can through these quests.

Double Gun Reaver Trickster

Today I am going to be putting together a Reaver Trickster build to go with Amber Vault. A reaver is all about lifesteal and increasing skill damage and maximising the Anomaly powers. What we want to do is build up damage based skills as well as making sure we have sustain to keep us safe. Twisted Rounds and Temporal Blade are going to be good for exploding enemy health bars and recharging your own. Borrowed Time is great for all-around protection.

Lets check out the skills.


Twisted Rounds (Damage) – Fill your current weapon’s mag with anomaly-infused bullets that increase your Fire Power by 1,213. The skill lasts until you reload or switch weapons

Borrowed Time (Movement) – Receive a shield and mark your location for 28 seconds. Triggering the skill again will bend spacetime and teleport you back to the marked spot.

Temporal Blade (Damage, Interrupt) – Paralyze and slice enemies in front of you, dealing damage and inflicting Slow and Interrupt to all targets.

Next let’s check out the mods.


Time-space protection: (Borrowed Time) Receive X Armor and 30% Resistance bonus while the skill is active.

Armour of Eons: (Borrowed Time) Activating the skill increases your Armor by 100% for 10 seconds.

Additional Mag: (Twisted Rounds) The skill is effective for two magazines before triggering the cooldown.

Strong Twist: (Twisted Rounds) While the skill is active, this increases your weapon’s firepower by an extra 15 percent.

Amour of Eons and TimeSpace Protection is going to help us with run and gun shotgun style. Armour of Eons especially gives you that extra 100% shield for 10 seconds, which will give you the time to lay the damage into your enemies, which is going to revisitalise your sheilds as a Trickster. Strong Twist is good for that extra damage.

Brain-Eater: Critical shots do not consume ammo (part of Amber Vault)
