The Butcher's Western Pack
The Gold Fever deals a high amount of charged and uncharged damage, with a decent range, at the cost of a below average concealment stat.
Other than that, the Gold Fever attacks slowly and charging a hit takes even longer.
It is recommended that players prepare a charge before attacking enemies.
If a player wishes for more damage, it is recommended that they get Berserker, Pumping Iron and Bloodthirst Aced from the Brawler skill tree.
If a player wishes for more knockdown, use Martial Arts Aced.
The weapon's appearance and name are references to the California Gold Rush, also known as the California Gold Fever or simply the Gold Fever, a historical hunt for gold in the California basin in 19th century United States.
