Ol’ Reliable is a unique weapon in Outer Worlds. It’s a light machine gun you can get in the Emerald Vale, and one of the best early weapons you can get your space-hands on. It does a lot of damage, and has an insane amount of durability, but there’s nothing truly special about it. Still, if you’re a heavy weapons user, you can’t do better than that at the start. In this guide, we’re going to show you Outer Worlds Ol’ Reliable unique weapon location.
How to get Ol’ Reliable?
You can find the Ol’ Reliable in the northeast of the Emerald Vale, the starting area. The place is called Primal Nest – as the name suggests, it’s a nest. If you’re not familiar with primals, they’re a bunch of nasty gorilla-on-steroids types. So yeah, the gun is being guarded by a bunch of bloodthirsty mega-apes. Good luck with that.
You’ll find it next to the body of a Corporate Commander, right where the beasts gather. Killing them is probably one of the most difficult things you can do in the Emerald Vale, but thankfully, you don’t have to. Simply run into the cave, grab the gun off the floor and hightail it out of there. It’s not how the designers meant for the encounter to go, but it’s a way to get this powerful weapon as soon as you finish the starting mission. Don’t hate the player – hate the game.
I’m not really into heavy weapons, so I can’t say how good this one is – it does have higher DPS than the regular variant, and insanely high durability (condition). You’ll get a lot of mileage from it, that’s for sure, and you won’t have to worry about maintenance. Not one bit.
