Outriders features an Auto Loot option but it doesn’t quite work as intended. This guide on How To Auto Loot In Outriders explains the current problems with the games auto loot option, providing a simple but effective trick to make picking up your loot much faster.

If you’ve already taken a look, you know there’s an existing Auto Loot function in the game. However, if you haven’t, be sure to have a quick look at it. In the Gameplay section of the Options menu there is a setting for Auto Loot Minimum Rarity. To change the setting, simply click on the < or > arrow to increase or decrease the rarity. If you push left, as I did every time, you will get to see the games credits, neat eh? Now, you want to make sure the Auto Loot Minimum Rarity is set to Common, although it’s not really that important at the moment.

UPDATE:
The auto-loot feature works exactly as intended. It picks up all the loot left on the floor when you teleport (using the flags) or the truck to change areas. The whole point is that it doesn’t clutter up the UI while you’re fighting hordes of monsters or murderous insurgents.

Thanks to RagePlatypus for pointing out my failure to understand the entire system.

On that setting, your character is meant to automatically pick up every single item he or she finds, from Common upwards. However, you will quickly find that this is not the case as your character stands atop a pile of loot collecting absolutely nothing. I have tested this on every setting available for the Auto Loot Minimum Rarity and it’s the same, it does not function correctly as it is now.

There is, however, an alternative. There is another button in the game, down on the D-Pad that is meant to lower the quality of auto loot for that single gather. So for example, if you Legendary setting on Auto Loot Minimum Rarity, pressing down on the D-Pad would pick up anything Epic. However, that too does not function.

So while it’s not fully auto-loot, the best option is to simple press Down on loot. This will automatically grab any item within range, regardless of rarity.
