Weird West is a top-down shooter which has some pretty interesting concept that changes the spaghetti western formula. Developed by WolfEye Studios, the game was released on March 31, 2022, and is a single-player experience using Unreal Engine 4.
Weird West is a dark fantasy reimagining of the typical Wild West formula where gunslingers, outlaws, and lawmen all live with fantastical creatures. There are Pigmen who abduct innocents to mutilate and butcher, cult fanatics who practice the dark arts, and sirens who cannibalize folk.
Standing still leaves you open to being hit more often. On higher difficulties in Weird West, you need to keep moving around. Hiding behind cover for too long isn’t as effective as enemies tend to charge and flank you often.
Bows Can Be Charged For Maximum Damage
Bows are a unique weapon in that they are both silent and can be charged. This makes bows incredibly useful for taking out enemies silently, especially with the bonus damage you deal to enemies unaware.
Purchase a Horse
Prioritize purchasing a horse every time you’re playing as a new character. Horses will get you around faster and will remain loyal to you throughout your journey. They also carry extra storage with them.
Number Beside Health Bar Means Defense
If you notice that there’s a number beside your and everyone’s health bar, that’s actually your defense stacked up together. This is usually applied to your vest which is your main source of protection. If you see an enemy with a high number beside their health bar, it means that they have really good armor protection.
