Normally, you can’t pause Outriders whenever you’re enjoying solo, because hey, it’s a web-based recreation, proper? But in the event you’re on PC and have an Nvidia GPU, you can put the motion on maintain each time that you must.

All Nvidia users need to do is hit Alt-F2 whereas enjoying to activate Ansel, as Reddit user Aced-Bread has found (by way of PC Gamer).

In different phrases, it pauses the sport.

You can’t simply use this to harass teammates whenever you’re enjoying on-line, both. You can nonetheless activate Ansel when you’re in a co-op session, however the motion will proceed as regular whereas it’s energetic. You know, because it’s a multiplayer session, the place you shouldn’t be capable of pause, versus a single-player mission, the place it’s best to.
