Dauntless Repeaters - How to Unlock and Upgrade Ostian Repeaters in Dauntless

To unlock Ostian Repeaters as a weapon in Dauntless, you first need to undertake a few specific quests.

At the beginning of Dauntless you'll have chain blades, axes, swords, hammers, and war pikes available to you from the jump. But what about the Ostian Repeater weapons? In our Dauntless repeaters guide, we'll be walking you through how to unlock repeaters in Dauntless as a weapon option, because they aren't immediately presented to you at the start of the game.

Dauntless Repeaters Unlock

From the very beginning of Dauntless, after undertaking your introductory hunt, you'll find yourself in the city of Ramsgate. This is the hub area of Dauntless, and it's where you'll earn and undertake new quests.

First, visit Katerin Sorrel. She's stood directly in front of you when you load into Ramsgate after any mission, and just to the left of the Hunt Board. Katerin will assign you one quest, which basically involves going and meeting all the other NPCs in Ramsgate.

Each NPC in the hub area has one focus. There's a blacksmith that creates weapons, an armor vendor, and many more. These NPCs will all assign you one specific, introductory quest, which you need to undertake. You can keep tabs on your Quests by pressing the pause button on your controller, and scrolling along to the 'Quests' tab.

Once you've undertaken one very simple quest for each NPC in Ramsgate, return to Katerin. She'll now assign you one new quest, but what you really want to do after visiting Katerin is go and visit Janek Zai. This NPC is located back and to the left from Katerin's position.

After speaking to Zai, he'll automatically give you your first Ostian Repeater in Dauntless. The repeater functions differently to other weapons in Dauntless, because there's only one version of it in the game. Instead of upgrading the weapon, you can mix and match parts of the repeater for new abilities and stats. Just below, we've listed all the upgradeable parts of the Ostian Repeater.

  • Barrels - The barrel of a repeater determines the element of your attacks.
  • Chambers - The chambers of a repeater change your single Skillshot ability.
  • Grips - The grips on a repeater sets your throw ability.
  • Prisms - The Prisms that you assign to a repeater generate a passive bonus for you.
  • Mods - As with every weapon in Dauntless, you can assign mods to your repeater to enhance your accuracy, firepower, movespeed, and more.
