Outriders: How to Unlock Locked Gear

Here's how you can get rid of that locked gear in your inventory

by Victor Vellas


Tons of loot awaits for you in the world of Outriders, with some pieces being locked from the character,  putting you in a spot where you will be tempted to look for ways on how to unlock that locked gear. Thankfully, this doesn’t happen often in the game, in fact quite the opposite. If you do have equipment like that in your inventory, then look no further as we will explain what you can do with these.

How to Unlock Locked Gear in Outriders

Quite a number of awesome-looking gear in Outriders, will have the ‘lock’ symbol at the top left, if you inspect them. This means that these weapons or armor pieces, can’t be dismantled or sold at all, resulting to occupying a fixed spot in your inventory. This means that the mods on these items are not possible to be broken down, for the character to claim them and use them for other gear pieces.

Thankfully, this type of gear is not easily obtained in Outriders. By the time of this article, the only items that can be locked in such way, are content from the Hell’s Rangers package and other DLC goodies. Which pretty much explains why these items can’t be used for anything at all, besides actual fighting. If you were able to dismantle or sell them, there wouldn’t be any option at all to get them back, making them disappear forever. To avoid this, the lock symbol was placed accordingly.

If your concern however is to get rid of them from your inventory, to save some space, then you are in good luck. These items can be stored in your stash, making room for other loot you will come across in your adventure. If you reach a point where they won’t be efficient anymore, then feel free to store them and admire them as collectors’ items.

This is how you can, or better, can’t unlock locked gear in Outriders. The whole instance may be unfortunate, as in reality you can’t actually unlock any of these, but at least there is an alternative, as we saw.
