The Weird West Nimp Relics give you the opportunity to upgrade your character with skills, so you have more methods of causing chaos during combat. Weird West sees you play as five unique characters through a series of episodes, with each one offering different abilities and roleplaying opportunities. So, if you need a breakdown of how the Weird West Nimp Relics work, and how to get them, we've got you covered. 

Weird West Nimp Relic: What Are They?

The Weird West Nimp Relics are an item you can use to gain abilities for your characters and weapons. Each weapon type in the game has a series of skills, while each character has four abilities unique to them, with all of them costing either one or two Nimp Relics to acquire. They resemble little bone necklaces as they are carved from the flesh of ancient creatures and give off a purple glow that is unmistakable. They'll be key to making your characters more powerful and giving them utility potential in a number of situations. 

  • We also have a list of Weird West tips to help you make the most of the game's mechanics.

Nimp Relics can be found across the world, with them usually being a reward for exploring the various environments in the game. You'll often find them in hidden chests, behind locked doors, in secret areas, at the end of dungeons, and much more. Sometimes they can also be gained as a reward for completing a quest or side objective, so there are a wealth of ways you can earn them and gain power. It's also worth noting that when you switch episodes, the previous character will keep any unused Nimp Relics in their inventory, so you can go and grab them too by getting them to join your party, or by killing them and looting their body.


That's our breakdown of the Weird West Nimp Relics, and now you know what purpose they serve, along with where you can obtain them in-game.
