On Enoch, chaos rules supreme, so it’s important to be ready to taken on the world’s challenges. We already know everything there is to know about the best Legendary weapons, but what’s the point in having a good gun if you don’t have the abilities to use it?

So you’re a Technomancer now, but what does that mean?

The Technomancer skill tree can be a bit of a difficult one to get to grips with if you’ve never played a game like this before, especially considering most of their damage comes from devices instead of raw firepower.

Below we’ve got a list of the best abilities to have under your belt:

Best Outriders abilities for Technomancer

Skill Description
Scrapnel Throws a shrapnel bomb, dealing damage and interrupting enemies in the blast radius.
Cryo Turret Place an automated turret that deals 3 damage and inflicts Freeze on enemies. The turret’s health depletes slowly over time and when it takes damage.
Pain Launcher Place a missile launcher and bomb the area in front of you. Each missile deals 18 damage per hit and Interrupts enemy skills.

Chaining all of these together creates a perfect but deadly combination. Drop your Scrapnel where you suspect enemies will be trying to flank from to keep your squad safe, then use your Cryo Turret and Pain Launcher to blow those running straight at you back to Earth.

Best Pestilence Technomancer build

Pestilence Skills

Sure, the Technomancer might not be a damage oriented class, but the Pestilence build will give DPS the opportunity to still cause some havoc.

The most important element of this build is the “Blighted Rounds,” because these inflict insane amounts of damage due to Toxin. The same is true of the “Blighted Turret.” If you want to become one of the horsemen of the apocalypse, you’ll need these two.

The best Pestilence skillset it:

Skill Description
Blighted Rounds Fill your current weapon’s magazine with decay-infused bullets that inflict Toxic onto enemies. Enemies within a small radius of the main target also receive Toxic and 50% damage. The skills lasts until you reload or switch weapons.
Cold Snap Drop a gadget to inflict Freeze onto all enemies within a large radius around you.
Blighted Turret Place an automated turret that deals damage and inflicts Toxic onto enemies. The turret’s health depletes slowly over time and when it takes damage.

Best Demolisher Technomancer Build

Demolisher skills

Stuck between Pestilence and Tech Shaman? Then Demolisher is the build for you. Dealing equal parts DPS and support, the Demolisher is the best of both worlds.

Your skillset should reflect this by being a mix of attacking and defensive choices. Scrapnel is perfect for defending your allies from flanks, and then your Blighted Rounds and Blighted Turret can layer up those DPS stats from afar.

The best skills are:

Skill Description
Scrapnel Throws a shrapnel bomb, dealing damage and interrupting enemies in the blast radius.
