Remember T-800 from Terminator 2: Judgement Day? With this Outer Worlds Build, you’ll be able to cosplay him in the game. Our T-800 build is all about utilizing Heavy Weapons and Heavy Armor, allowing you to drop bodies wherever you go without as much a scratch on your shiny armor. Let’s get to it:
- Attributes: x3 Intelligence, x3 Temperament, Perception/Dexterity (Optional)
- Skills: Heavy Weapons, Science, Any Personal Preference
- Tier 1 Perks: Toughness, Strider, High Maintenance, Lone Wolf
- Tier 2 Perks: Run and Gun, Harvester
- Tier 3 Perks: Steady Hand, Penetrating Shots, Revenge, Armor Master, Thick Skin
- Weapons: Any Heavy Weapon
For Attributes, you should always try to maximize your damage potential, be it Headshot/Weakspot Damage or Critical Hit Damage. With Temperament, you’ll get all the sustain in the world without the need for backing off to heal. This build is all about killing things and that’s exactly what you’ll achieve with it. You can also consider investing an Attribute Point in Dexterity/Perception but that’s completely a personal preference.
Coming to Skills, you’ll primarily need Heavy Weapons and Science for increased Critical Hit Chance, Critical Hit Damage, and Elemental Damage. Since it can be a little hard to control the recoil patterns of Heavy Weapons, investing in the Heavy Weapons skill will also circumvent that.
For the remaining Skill Points, you can invest in Medical or Engineering to increase damage against Humans/Automechanicals but that’s completely optional. However, you won’t be able to get this damage boost until you maximize them so be sure to keep this in mind!
The recommended Perks for this build are all about keeping you alive and ensuring that you don’t miss your shots. While you should always play around with Perks to see which ones work best for you but I’d highly suggest survivability, increased Armor rating, and accuracy over other things.
When it comes to weapons, you can go with Heavy Machine Gun, Shock Cannon, or the Flamethrower depending on your playstyle. Also, don’t forget to apply some mods on your weapons to increase their overall effectiveness.
If you like to play with companions, make sure to swap out Medical or Engineering for Leadership to help your companions. That’s pretty much all there is to this build.
