    What are the New World skill trees?

    In New World every weapon has a skill tree which helps determine how and when to use them while playing. Using them wisely will allow you to rise through the ranks. When it comes to muskets, there are two skill trees this weapon has, and these are:


    The Sharpshooter or sniper, in New World, is the one who allows you to master the musket and deal heavy damage to each target individually.


    The second tree is called Trapper or trapper, in its Spanish translation. As the name suggests, focuses on the application of traps, like bombs.

    What are the active and passive abilities of the Trapper tree?

    Each tree has a number of skills that guide us to use it in the most convenient way in combat. They are divided into the following groups:

    Passive skills

    In the case of the Trapper tree, passive skills are more numerous than active ones. These are what we show you below:

    • Backup: speed up of any movement of the 10%, as long as the target is less than eight meters away.
