By unlocking abilities, players will also unlock the corresponding hexes, each of which provide different bonuses. The following is everything you need to know about Hexes and how to unlock them in Blacktail.

Hexes are bonus attributes that players can unlock by unlocking a certain number of abilities. Most abilities are categorized under a particular Hex which is indicated by the Hex logo at the top of each ability. There is a total of four hexes: Hare Hex, Goat Hex, Crow Hex and Serpent Hex. Each hex provides a different bonus, and players can select which hex they wish to activate by opening the cauldron in the cabin. Only one hex can be active at a time.
