To display outliers in boxplot with different shape in base R, we can use outpch argument in boxplot.

For example, if we have a vector called X that contains some outliers then we can create a boxplot of X with different shape of outliers by using the below given command −

boxplot(X,outpch=17)

Example

To display outliers in boxplot with different shape in base R, use the code given below −

x<-c(-20,rpois(10,5),20)
boxplot(x)

Output

If you execute the above given code, it generates the following output −
