How does co-op work in Evil West?

In Evil West's co-op mode, both players will play as Jesse Rentier. Only the player hosting the multiplayer session will save progress, meaning that your co-op partner will have to play through the game solo or host the session themselves to progress on their end. But both players can receive Bucks, allowing them to purchase upgrades.

All skills and unlocks will be reset for both players and adjusted for the current mission. When one player is downed, the other can pick them up to get them back in the fight. Additionally, enemy health and damage have been modified to keep the challenge similar to the single-player experience.
