How To Upgrade Leech Skills in Outriders

The Leech skill can be upgraded in two ways. The first way is to equip weapons and armor that increase the Skill Leach or Weapon Leech. The weapons and armor of higher rarity will naturally offer better attributes and percentage of the Leech skill.

Needless to say that the player will only be able to benefit from these attribute boosts if they have the weapon or armor equipped. The attributes of the weapon can also be improved through crafting and upgrading.

The second way to upgrade the Leech skill is to spend your class points on perks that specifically increase the Weapon Leech skill or the Armor Leech Skill. 

Different classes have different attributes to upgrade. The Trickster Class has the “Life Transfer” node in the Reaver Tree. Each of these nodes will increase the Leech skill by 6%, while the Pyromancer Class can improve their Weapon Leech by 5% for each “Moth of the flame” perk they unlock.
