Changing Classes in Outriders
There is no direct way to change a character’s class in Outriders, but you can create a new character of another class. In Outriders, you can skip all the cinematics and prologue after you have completed it once, which means you don’t need to watch the pre-story cinematic every time you create a new character and start the game.
You can skip right to the class picking screen and hop into the game with your friends as quickly as it gets available. Outriders do not have a skill-based matchmaking system to play in co-op, which means you can play with your friends after creating a new class, who are high level than you.
