For those who like the root and point and shoot, the Posse Leader, Hunter and Quick Reload is going to be must-have perks. The Posse Leader increases the damage and health of your posse, with the percentages increasing depending on the tier you have in that perk. Meanwhile, Hunter increases your movements speed while using rifles, bows and shotguns, allowing you to gap close or potential kite monsters and other nasty NPCs while in combat. Lastly, you have the Quick reload, which increases reload speed depending on the tier of the passive. The Healthy and Trail Medic perks are also good shouts for this playstyle, as they increase healing with bandages and increase your character’s total HP. Most of these traits are in fact the best perks in Weird West in general.

For those looking to play a  thief playstyle, then you might find more use for the High Jumper, Locksmith, and Scorunger perks. These are easily the best Weird West Perks for those who plan on breaking crimes for a variety of reasons. Take High Jumper, for example, it makes it easier to sneak around on rooftops if you’re evading the law in a town, or perhaps even to get onto a roof to then break in via a rope in a chimney. Then, getting extra dollars through stealing containers is a nice idea, plus the chance to save a lockpick can come in clutch.

Other generally good to use perks include the Locksmith and the Haggler. The Haggler is generally good as getting a big discount on the $1500 legendary quality weapons is an added bonus, and we have already discussed the Locksmith above.
