Weird West , the top-down role-playing game, was recently released on all major consoles. The developer also released the very first update for the game. Update 1.01 brings QoL changes, stability improvements, and a plethora of bug fixes. The patch made changes to the Auto Save Slots and Manual Save Slots as well.

We have mentioned the highlights of the update below:

  • Your Horse now stops if it was moving while if you attempt to search their Saddlebags (and Saddlebags won't auto-close if they restart moving for whatever reasons, but will still auto-close if you move away from your Horse)
  • You can now access your Companions and Horse inventory directly from the Shop UI to resell items directly from their inventory
  • Wanderers now also buy Junk Items to give more opportunities to resell such items while on the road
  • The game now cycles through 5 x Auto Save Slots instead of 3, so you can more easily backtrack through save files if needed
  • Game Pass PC Build now uses 10 Manual Save Slots like on Xbox (up from 5) so it matches for Save Roaming between both platforms
  • The Protector Journey Hero recruited as a Companion will no longer wrongly quit your Posse when receiving friendly fire
  • Bolt-Action Forester Rifles now have their correct icon in the Weapon Wheel
  • Improved throwable weapons (eg dynamites etc) throw arc and speed so they are easier to use in combat and can easily be sent through door frames etc
  • Decreased HOLD time on Scrap Weapon interaction to be standard HOLD interact time to make it less annoying to scrap multiple weapons in a row
  • Added an option so that player can transfer at once all junk items from their inventory to a companion, horse, or container inventory
  • Made all Bounty Targets Intro Line non-blocking so that player doesn't get derailed by a blocking conversation while fighting or sneaking on their target
  • Made it so that if you return a handcuffed Bounty Target, they only have a low chance of later jailbreaking and starting a vendetta against you (was previously 100% when it should have been 15%)
  • Companions now auto use bandages they have in their inventory when their health drops below 40% (instead of the threshold being at 25%)
  • Tuned distraction noise made by throwing props around so AIs will react to it from further away, allowing player more control over this system
  • Added Loading Hint about Companions not requiring Ammo to use ranged weapons
  • You can drop items from your inventory when browsing containers/NPCs inventory and opening your inventory side panel
  • Made it clearer on the Crafting UI which is the item you produce and which are the items needed
