How to Arm Wrestle in The Outlast Trials

To arm wrestle in the Outlast Trials, sit down at one of the chairs before entering a new trial. You’ll need an opponent to sit opposite of you; then, you’ll be able to arm wrestle. To win the arm wrestling match, left-click when the arrow hits the colored slices in the wheel. Each time you successfully click while the arrow is on a colored slice, you’ll build a combo. Darker colors are better and more powerful, but what’s most important is that you hit the slices successfully in a row.

The player that hits the darker slices more times in a row will win the arm wrestling match. If you’re both hitting the slice consistently, then it will come down to who hits the darker colors more often — however, going for the highest score becomes riskier as the arrow speeds up because there’s a higher chance of missing it altogether, resetting your combo.

Arm wrestling in The Outlast Trials is a fun little mini-game players can use to unwind from the stress and anxiety that builds up from actually playing a trial. It’s fun to do while waiting for your teammates, and we’d be lying if we said we didn’t waste a few minutes trying to beat other players.
