In case you’re wondering, rigs in The Outlast Trials are basically upgrades that grant you major boosts in a handful of ways. These rigs are unlocked once you reach therapy level 2.
That said, there are only four rigs available in the game. These are Blind, Heal, Stun, and Xray. Needless to say, each of the rigs has its own unique feature that sets it apart from the rest.
In this guide, we’ll look at how you can use each of them and which is arguably the best rig of them all.
How to Use All Rigs in The Outlast Trials
You’ll be able to find all rigs inside the Bingo Fuel Garage. Here, you’ll also get the chance to see a tutorial for each rig by interacting with each of them.
Rigs are basically a type of consumable in The Outlast Trials. However, each time you use a rig, you won’t be able to use it again unless you pick up Rig rechargers.
These are boxes that you can obtain inside blue cabinets and metal lockers. But first, you need to unlock these compartments in order to loot the recharger inside.
If you want to switch your Rig, you can do so at the Murkoff facility by interacting with the main central terminal.
Rigs and Their Uses
Now that you know how to use a rig, let’s talk about the effects of each rig.
First, let’s talk about the Heal rig.
A pretty straightforward one, the Heal rig releases a healing gas that will heal you and your allies within its radius. However, you have to keep in mind that the radius isn’t that big.
Later on, you’ll be able to increase its radius with the Expanded Radius upgrade. You can also shorten its cooldown or make it so that it won’t make any noise while using it.
Next is the Blind rig, which is a landmine-looking rig that produces a smoke cloud when triggered by enemies, thus blinding them.
Like the Heal rig, it also has upgrades that will shorten its cooldown, increase its radius, or increase the blind duration, among others.
Third, we have the Xray rig which, as the name implies, allows you to see through walls and detect enemies for a certain duration.
You can upgrade it so that it can also detect documents and posters or share the location of tagged enemies with your allies.
Lastly, we have the Stun rig which you throw at your enemies to stun them for a brief period of time. This is useful for escaping enemy encounters as it will leave your enemies disabled for a while.
You can upgrade it to extend its duration, expand its radius, or give it the ability to disarm any traps within its radius.
