Unlock Companion Skills

There are six different Companions you can recruit at various stages of The Outer Worlds and up to two of them will be able to accompany you at a time on your travels. They will be able to help you considerably in both combat and other aspects of the game as they have access to unique Perks which you can select to upgrade and level up.

If you raise your Inspiration skill up to 20+ you will make the Companions you recruit even more useful as it will unlock their unique special combat ability which is powerful enough to turn the tide of most battles if used correctly.

Steal Things

Don't be afraid to steal things in The Outer World, there will only be negative consequences if you are seen which means the time to take something that is not yours is when nobody has a direct line of sight. Make sure whenever you are in a room by yourself you take the opportunity to ransack the place for any useful items.

How to Respec and Reset your Skills

If you feel you have made a mistake while upgrading or just want to change your character for whatever reason you can do so in The Outer Worlds by using the Vocational Competence Respecification Machine which is found on your ship by climbing up the ladder across the room and then following the upper platform around. Using this device will cost you 500 Bits for the first Respec with additional Respecs costing you more. As this is an expensive process you should only use it when you really need to.

Get Easy Plenty of XP Early

In The Outer Worlds there are two main planets, these are Monarch and Terra-2, and before you venture outside of the multiple towns each of them have it is recommended that you take the time to talk to the NPCs as mediator in each location and resolve conflicts. Completing all these quests will enable you to build up plenty of XP for when you explore outside of the boundaries of towns.

Spend Credits on Tinkering your Favourite Weapons

Make sure whenever you come across a workbench you spend any available credits you have on tinkering your weapons so you increase their base damage. Hang on to your favourite weapons by continuously tinkering them until you find a weapon of a much higher level and then switch to that one.

Pay Attention to Conversations

The conversations that take place in The Outer Worlds are important and it is essential that pay attention to them as they enable you to learn more about situations and the worlds around you. Engaging in conversations will allow you to raise your Persuade, Intimidate and Lie dialog-related skills which once increased to 20+ will give you access to unique combat benefits.
