The Devastator is a close-range class that is the quintessential tank class in Outriders.
Devastators are reliable assets in both solo and co-op modes, but which is the most powerful build for the class?
Our guide has you covered.
Devastator — Skill Trees
Seismic Shifter is much the more interesting class tree for the Devastator. This branch allows you to maximize skills such as Tremor, Impale and Earthquake.
The last node in this branch increases your seismic damage by 50%, which is perfect for these skills.
Moreover, this branch also allows you to improve two other skills: Golem and Reflect Bullets. These are slightly more defensive skills, and allows for a more balance build with a range of abilities to call upon.
Devastator — Skill Choices
With the Seinsmic Shifter skill tree you'll have a wide range of skills, both offensive and defensive.
Given the buffs provided by the Marshal armor set and by the skill tree, the following skill choices are most optimal for offensive gameplay, while providing a moment's respite should you need it.
Offensive — 14s cooldown
Release a shockwave to deal damage and Interrupt all enemies in front of you.
Defensive — 26s cooldown
Fortify yourself against 65% of incoming damage for 8 seconds.
Offensive — 23s cooldown
Encase a target in stone, inflicting Bleed and pulling enemies within a small radius towards the initial target. The stone will then explode, dealing damage to all enemies within a small radius around the target.
Armor Set Bonus: Endless Mass pulls enemies and causes up to 4 of them to share 10% of anomaly and 30% of weapon incoming damage for 5 seconds.
Devastator — Legendary Armor
The Marshal set is one of the best armor choices for this build.
The set bonus, Endless Mass, pulls enemies close and causes up to four to share 10% anomaly damage and 30% weapon damage for five seconds.
Modding this armor will also bestow a nice improvement to your Earthquake skill.
Devastator — Weapons
