New World PVP Guide
PVP means player versus player, and it's one of the two ways of combat you'll have the option to engage in within New World.
There's many benefits to choosing PVP over PVE, aspects such as new quests, increased XP and perhaps more importantly is that the more PVP missions you and your Faction complete in a certain region. The more influence you'll have over it, and eventually, if you complete enough, it may trigger a War or an Invasion.
There's also some other aspects that you should know regarding PVP, as only opposing players (not in your faction) will be able to attack you and you're only safe within Cities and Towns.
PVP is a great way to get used to battling, but since this is a guide, we'd recommend you don't turn it on unless you're with a group of other players who suit your skillset.
As there's always going to be some players within New World, that will sit in sneaky spots and wait to gank other PVP players; who are solo.
Besides all of these tips, New World's PVP is a fantastic way to have some additional fun within the game, and through some simple tips and tricks we've provided above, you're well on your way to becoming a master of duels.
