Weird West Best Skills Guide

More isn’t always the merrier. Sometimes we must make a smart choice and only pick what is best for us. To help you formulate the best combination of skills, we bring you this guide where we will discuss everything there is to know about the best skills in Weird West.

What are Nimp Relics Used For in Weird West

In Weird West, every weapon and character has a unique ability that can be unlocked using a Nimp Relic. Nimp Relic is a purple necklace-like collectible spread all over the map and can be obtained by completing quests.

Every ability requires at least 1 and at most 2 Nimp Relics. Unlocked abilities do not carry onto the next character. They are lost at the end of every journey, although the unused Nimp Relics can be accessed if we recruit a character from a previous journey.

Best Skills For Each Character in Weird West

Every character in Weird West has unlockable skills that are specific to them. They can be unlocked with Nimp Relics. Following, we will discuss the special abilities of every character so you can make the smart choice when it comes to it.
