This Outriders guide page has information on the notes that are scattered throughout the game world. In this section, you will learn what the notes do and what you can learn from them.
If you like to immerse yourself in the game world and learn stories, it is recommended to look around for notes scattered around different locations. The picture above shows all the information and records you have collected so far - you can enter the Journal by using the default J key.
Most records and notes are easy to access and obtain, some will require you to search the nooks and crannies on the map. When looking for a note, look for floating cards with blue edges, marked in the picture below.
