Best Way To Obtain The Messenger Legendary Assault Rifle in Outriders Worldslayer
Worldslayer brought a new gameplay system which is called Ascension Tiers. This is similar to World Tiers in that it increases the difficulty of enemies, but in return you’ll have an increased chance of seeing Apocalyptic Legendaries drop. Once you’ve gained access to the Ascension Tiers, put it on the highest tier available to you and continue slaying enemies until it eventually drops.
Alternatively, you can speak with Tiago at the base camp and he may have it available as one of his Elite Offers. However, these weapons aren’t cheap to purchase, so make sure you balance out dismantling weapons and selling them to get a good amount of resources and scrap. If you have any Drop Pod Resources, then you can use that to Reroll to get a bunch of new offers. For those running low on Drop Pod Resources, then take a look at our How to get Drop Pod Resources page.
