How to Unlock Crafting in Outriders
In Outriders, you will first need to unlock crafting before being able to use the skill. You will first need to unlock the base and also complete the first main quest.

Both these quests are quite straightforward and linear, so you won’t have to worry about what to do in them. After rescuing Zahedi, talk to him before returning to Jakub to unlock crafting.
After unlocking Crafting, the crafting menu can be accessed by talking to Zahedi. Crafting items requires resources, and in Outriders, there are many different types of resources present.
