Best Perks to Use Golden Ace of Spades in Weird West
Here are all the perks you can use your Golden Ace of Spades on:
Healthy: increase your maximum Hit Points.
Trail Medic: recover more Hit Points when using bandages.
Quick Reload: increase reload speed with firearms.
Posse Leader: boost posse members’ damage output and maximum Hit Points.
Demolitionist: deal more explosive damage with dynamite and cluster dynamite.
Ambusher: Inflict more damage on unaware targets.
Quick Stealth: increase speed while crouched.
Hunter: move faster when aiming with rifles, shotguns, or bows.
Haggler: reduce shop prices and service fees.
Scrounger: find more money in containers.
Bullet Dodger: increase fire rate during dodge leap.
High Jumper: jump higher, and take less fall damage.
Locksmith: gain a chance to save one of your lockpicks from breaking when picking a lock.
It’s always a good idea to invest in perks that prioritize survivability first. This puts Healthy and Trail Medic at the top of the list since they keep you alive the most.
Next what you’re going to want to focus investing on are perks that enhance combat. Quick Reload is a decent perk as every second you’re using to reload your gun is a second you’re not hitting the enemy. Posse Leader helps enhance your posse by making them tougher and hit harder. Demolitionist can help you quickly take out groups of enemies. These three perks help put pressure on the enemy and always keep you on the offense.
Perks like Ambusher and Quick Stealth depend if you prefer taking the quiet approach. Ambusher is a very good perk, combined with the Sentry Silencer ability, you can reliably take out anyone unaware in one-shot, even bosses. Quick Stealth helps you get around faster, reducing the risk of getting caught.
The following perks are rather situational and your mileage may vary. If you like saving up money, then Haggler and Scrounger are good perks. Bullet Dodger doesn’t really come up useful in most scenarios and you can go through most of the game without High Jumper. Locksmith seems to be the least useful perk unless you’re planning on dedicating to an unlawful route.
