This article dives into everything that players need to know about legendary shotguns in Outriders.

Legendary Shotguns in Outriders

To collect legendary shotguns in Outriders, players will have to depend on the random weapon drops they receive after completing quests and expeditions.

Additionally, having a high World Tier or Challenge Tier level will boost the chances of receiving legendary gear from quests or expeditions.

Outriders allow players to re-run all the quests and expeditions that they have already completed. On top of that, replaying a quest or expedition has the same chances of acquiring legendary gear as the first time playing that quest or expedition.

All of this confirms that the best method of collecting legendary shotguns in Outriders is by repeatedly playing the quests and expeditions.

With all the said, the following is a list of all the available legendary shotguns along with their weapon mods in Outriders. Players have the chance to acquire these whenever they complete a high-tier quest or expedition:
