Tips and Strategies

Inflict Burn Damage to Sciathans

Outriders - Hunter - Sandshifter Inflict Burn Damage to Sciathans
Sciathans are immune to certain skills like the Devastator's Gravity Leap while flying.

To force them to the ground, use a weapon that inflicts Burn damage. This leaves them vulnerable to attacks and skills in this state.

Hide Behind a Structure to Avoid Frontal Sweep

Outriders - Hunter - Sandshifter Hide Behind a Structure
Whenever Sandshifter is about to use Frontal Sweep or Obliterating Beam, you can hide behind the rock pillar to block its attack.

Wait for the meter to fully deplete as the beam can still hit you even when moving away from the structure.
