The Outlands is a rugged Zone which is home to the minor Faction Black Dog. It is the location of a Tech Hunters controlled Major Town: Black Scratch. Black Scratch is notable for having The Great Library and the Anti-Slaver Unique Recruit Bo.

Players should be mindful of the Encumbrance percentage of their characters in this area. Being weighed down only makes it harder to run from the very common Reavers patrols. If characters are KO'd by the Reavers, there is a high chance that they will be enslaved and their items will be stolen from them.


There are no Ancient Locations in The Outlands. This zone does not spawn Nests or Camps.
