Different from firepower, you’ll need to utilize Anomaly Power precisely to make the most out of it.

A Bonus Attribute

Put plainly, Anomaly Power is a bonus attribute. Alongside others such as Amor Pierce and Max Health, it serves to increase the damage that’s dealt by your melee attacks and special abilities.

So, the higher you spec into Anomaly Power, the higher your damage bonus will be. Pyromancers also receive a 10% bonus over the other classes.

How do you get Anomaly Power?

Increasing your Outriders Anomaly Power is, thankfully, relatively easy to achieve. You can do this in a few ways:

  1. Armor mods such as Move Groove, Aura of Force, and Power Assimilation can increase your power depending on circumstances. These range from the number of Elites on a Battlefield, to boosts being applied after critical shots.
  2. All armor looted in-game has the chance to drop with an Anomaly Power attribute. These bonuses stack, too, so utilize them carefully to maximize your output.
  3. Utilizing your class’ skill tree nodes. As an example, some of the skills to boost AP for each class are:
    • Trickster – Reaver: Concentration – Increase your Anomaly Power by 6%.
    • Technomancer – Pestilence: Grand Amplification – Increase your Anomaly Power by 4% for each unlocked Br/8 Impact Amplifier class node.
    • Pyromancer – Tempest: Archmage – Each node increases your Anomaly Power by 6%.
    • Devastator – Seismic Shifter: Anomaly Reservoir – Increase your Anomaly Power by 6%.
