Outriders quests are normally pretty straightforward — talk to an NPC and follow the magic marker to some enemies and a treasure chest. But one of Outriders’ later areas offers a secret quest called “Forgotten Chapel.”

To unlock this secret quest in the Canyon of the Grand Obelisk area, you’ll need to activate three pillars, and then open a runic door. You’ll earn a guaranteed Legendary item as your reward for discovering the quest.

In this Outriders “Forgotten Chapel” secret quest walkthrough, we’ll show you how to find and complete the “Forgotten Chapel” quest in the Canyon of the Grand Obelisk area of Outriders.

You’ll need to activate three small pillars to even unlock the Forgotten Chapel quest. All three are easy to find if you’re doing your own exploring, but use the map above to make sure you don’t miss any. There are two pillars in the Canyon Entrance zone and one in The Monolith zone

Once you’ve found them all, you can track the quest and the objective marker will lead you toward the door. Or you can make your way to the yellow checkmark on our map above.

To find the first small pillar in the Canyon of the Grand Obelisk, walk out of your camp and into the Canyon Entrance zone. Take an immediate left. You’ll see a short path here. Follow the path until you reach the glowing pillar next to the brazier. Step up to the pillar and activate it by interacting. It will sink into the ground.

Stay in the Canyon Entrance zone for the next small pillar.


The second small pillar

From your camp, walk into the Canyon Entrance zone in the Canyon of the Grand Obelisk. Walk forward until you encounter a horde of monsters. Clear the area of enemies — you’ll need to kill a lot of these things to get them to stop coming.

Once all the monsters are dead, go up the slope and take a sharp right. Follow the stairs up to a small temple area where you may need to fight off more monsters. Inside the temple, you’ll see a small loot chest and the second small pillar. Interact with the pillar, and it will sink into the ground.

Now you need to complete the main story quest in this area.


The third small pillar

The third small pillar is in The Monolith zone of the Canyon of the Grand Obelisk area. You can’t access this one until you finish the main story for this area. Once the cutscene of the story missions play out and you’re told to go back to camp, run all the way to the back of the temple, behind some tents, and up the stairs. You’ll see the final small pillar at the top of the stairs.

Activate this one to make it sink into the ground. Once you’ve sunk all three small pillars, you’ll get the Forgotten Chapel quest.


Finding the door to the Forgotten Chapel

Once you have the Forgotten Chapel quest, you can use your quest marker to guide you to the door. Travel to the flag just west of the Cliffside Path zone and walk up the stairs into the Cliffside Path proper. Keep your eyes right and you’ll come across a big vault door, with runes glowing on the side. Walk up to the small pillar next to the vault door and activate it. The door will slide open.

Walk inside the Forgotten Chapel and loot the chest to pick up a Legendary weapon and finish this quest.
