How to Unlock the Slide Dash in The Outlast Trials
This heading contains the word “unlock”, which means I’ve just spoiled the guide for you, dear reader. The slide dash is not available by default in The Outlast Trials. Luckily, it’s not hidden behind a microtransaction or anything, you just need to play for a little while more and you’ll be offered to buy it. What’s this about?
The Outlast Trials has introduced Rigs that you can use in your Trials, and it has introduced perks that are called Prescriptions. The Prescriptions are the key to your question.
Sliding in The Outlast Trials is unlocked by buying a perk (Prescription) which is Tier 1 and available when you hit Level 3. Worry not about the Level, because you will be prompted to hit the “pharmacy” after the Trial is finished if you are eligible. You can’t miss it, it’s right there when you leave the shuttle (See the feature image above for reference).
The cost for the Slide skill is just 1 ticket, so if you’ve spent your tickets, just level up again and visit the Pharmacy after the next Trial.
After you purchase the Slide skill, you can dash into safety by pressing your Crouch key while sprinting.
