Titanium is one of the rarest resources in Outriders and one of the most important. Titanium is used to raise an item’s rarity status, allowing you to turn those blues into purples, which keep items competitive and lets you bring some favorites along towards the end-game. The only problem is finding and farming Titanium so you have enough to play with your build.
Titanium is one of the end-game resources in Outriders. This valuable resource is used to raise an item’s rarity up to Epic (purple). You cannot use Titanium to raise something to Legendary status, that level is reserved for ultra-unique items. Unfortunately, Titanium is rather rare, only being available from very specific sources. In saying that, you can still find a decent amount if you know where to look.
Dismantle Epic and Legendary items
Firstly, you can get Titanium by dismantling Epic and Legendary items. If you get a purple item that you like, don’t get too attached to it as it can be dismantled for Titanium. The same holds true for Legendary gear (orange). As you level up and find new items, don’t be afraid to dismantle old gear, even if it is purple or orange. Besides, this is a great way to get new mods, too.
Increase the World Tier
Another way to get Titanium is to increase the World Tier. You will receive a reward for the first time you increase a World Tier to a new level. At a certain point, these reward packages will include Titanium. Furthermore, by playing with the World Tier at a higher level, you will increase your chances of having Titanium drop from loot chests and enemies. Speaking of which…
Farm tough enemies
Defeating tough enemies is another great way of farming Titanium. But what classifies as a tough enemy? Good question. Basically, anything with a unique icon above its health bar, like a skull, is a tough enemy. If you can manage, going on hunts and tracking down bounty targets is one way to encounter tough enemies. You can also replay these missions, and others, to help you farm Titanium. As your World Tier increases, so will the rate that these foes drop Titanium.
Mine ore veins
Finally, you can also find Titanium by mining ore veins. These ore veins will typically drop Iron, but with your World Tier increased, you may start noticing that they drop Titanium. This isn’t the best way to get the valuable resource, as veins can sometimes be difficult to spot. On top of that, levels aren’t exactly lousy with them.
Shout out to Chatty user MacemaninTW for pointing out that it's possible to sell excess Iron and Leather for Scrap, which can then be used to purchase Titanium. Furthermore, increasing a weapon's level resets its attributes. Level a gun to max before you start upgrading the attributes in order to avoid wasting Titanium.
All of this is to say that in order to get a good supply of Titanium in Outriders, you should focus on increasing the World Tier, farming every ore vein you see, and fighting the toughest enemies you can find. While you’re doing this, dismantle every single Epic or Legendary item you don’t need, as that is a guaranteed way to get Titanium – plus you’ll get some Shards and nice mods, too.

Sam Chandler posted a new article, How to get Titanium - Outriders
A vendor in the late game let's you trade your hundreds of thousands of iron and leather for scrap. You can use that to buy titanium if needed.
One more tip that I wish I had seen earlier:
Leveling up a gun or armor resets your attributes. Don't waste shards on something until you have it at max level or all those shards are wasted!
Great tips mate! I'll update the piece with this info when I get in in the morning!
I've been finding all sorts of little things I wish I had known before blowing all sorts of currency and time!
