  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • #Notices Drac has a very camp looking character. More hello sailor than hello cowboy.

    Tried online for about 30 mins the other day and It’s so far worse than Chapter 1 of Story Mode.

    Despite what R* said, I think it’s going to be another GTA Online, I’m sure millions of people will love it, but I won’t be one of them. I’ll find it a frustrating, grind of a thing with an open world that’s not quite as detailed as the story mode full of psychopaths.

    I’ve read lots of people say it’s better to free roam out of town, away from others players, but aren’t other players sort of the point?

    I’m in Epilogue 2 in story mode and It’s wonderful, I’m planning to spend a long time roaming the map, doing all the things I couldn’t be bothered to do

    Spoiler:
    with Arthur,

    hunting the legendary  Animals, crafting stuff and looking for all the cool little side missions I’ve seen on YT, but never actually found myself.

    I was roaming away out of sight and taking stranger missions up in the mountains to try and build up some cash for better guns before getting into any battles. Though turns out I could do with buying a warmer coat….

    Hopefully the economy will be sorted, cause either people have been playing every second since its been on or they have dumped a load of cash into their character

    In Online, Fishing is a good money earner. A single steelhead trout brings in as much money as a story mission

    You currently can’t but cash. Leveling up gets you treasure maps, gang hideouts may have one too, killing skining then selling the skin and coprse of the animal gets you cash or play the game modes.

    Die, respawn, die, respawn, die. I don’t understand the online game, can’t go near a town without everyone killing me or at least trying to. Seems an utterly pointless addition to the main story tbh if you can’t just go about your business getting to a shop or a mission start point. Utter pish.

    I guess you’ll have to wait until they bring on safe mode so that you can shop and pick flowers in peace.

    Hey it wasn’t just flowers, there were herbs and carrots as well

    Today we are starting to implement the first set of adjustments to the game including changes specifically geared towards creating a more balanced, fun and rewarding overall experience, across all modes and missions. These include:

    • Increasing the cash and gold payments across a number of different activities including Free Roam Missions, Free Roam Events, replays of A Land of Opportunities Missions, Showdown Series modes and more.
    • Reducing the prices of most weapons in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue and Gunsmiths. For players that have already purchased weapons at the previous prices, we will automatically deposit the difference to player balances starting today – please look for an alert message the next time you log in to the Red Dead Online Beta to notify you of this change, refunds may take up until Monday, December 10th to reach all eligible players.
    • Balancing the values of select pelts, skins and fish as well as horse reviver and pamphlets.
    Of course our efforts to improve and balance the Red Dead Online Beta will continue. We are conscious of and still evaluating an assortment of further adjustments based on feedback from the community. We are currently working on fixes for some persistent bugs that are causing some players to be kicked from sessions, and we aim to have fixes for these live next week. We will also continue to review all the feedback and suggestions so please keep them coming to reddeadonline.com/feedback.

    As an added thank you for playing and helping us through the beta period, we’re also awarding everyone that joined in to play the Red Dead Online Beta at any point through midnight PST today with a gift of RDO$250 and 15 Gold Bars. Gifts should start arriving today and will hit all eligible players by Friday, December 14th.

    Once again, we want to thank everyone for playing the Red Dead Online Beta and sharing their experiences so far with us. There’s still lots more to come so please stay tuned!

    Decent response, I wasn’t looking forward to grinding for a week to buy a tin of beans. Still need to get to the shop without getting shot though.

    Has anyone else got stuck at 75% on the online story progress?
    Turns out it was because I was too honourable (I had done that on purpose), so had no option but to go on murderous rampages round the streets of Saint Dennis (there a brilliant camping spot you can sit and just keep picking of police in until you get bored or your ammo runs out)

    Honourable, it’s based on decisions you make during the missions (let people live or die) and the missions you do (e.g convoy escort + or assassinations -)

    Edit: thinking maybe you were joking

    I know this is hardly news, but the maps big isn’t it! I rode from Blackwater to Armadillo and back via Theives Landing for a mooch about. Took 45 mins!

    Drac has ruined flower picking for me, brute.

    You just have to find the right spots. I’ve been just on hunting for an hour, I was killed once and that was because I pinched his perfect dear carcass of their horse.

    Got my cash, got my gold, got me my pump action shotgun 😉 That makes the gang hideouts a bit easier. Certainly finding more hideouts and better missions, not sure if that is level up or upgrades to the game, bit quieter in there so apart from becoming target of assassination no randoms have killed me yet.

    I have had a few randoms kill me, not sure why but they seem to holdup in the towns and shoot anyone coming in.
    Having a pump action shotgun is a game changer close up.
    When me and a mate posse up we have taken to killing a couple of the women and taking their hats, i think it must surprise a few when we come riding into town with a flowery hat on 🙂

    I’m still only on chapter 3! I keep getting majorly distracted and spending hours not progressing the game. Yesterday I literally spent an hour just trying to bag a perfect squirrel and failing. Today in real life at work I saw a squirrel and my immediate thought was to go for my bow and arrow 🙄

    Yup fully refunded and getting kitted out.

    Went back to finish the main game his afternoon.

    What an absolute masterpiece of a game

    I wouldn’t rush it, enjoy it.

    If nothing else, I couldn’t be sure but the map seems a bit light on random encounters since I ended the story.

    Still, I shit a Cowboy in the head with an explosive round from about a mile away with my sniper rifle tonight, I’m not sure that could ever get old.

    Did you get a happy ending Drac? 😉
    I did enjoy the redemption end to the main game, somehow made the transition into what followed a satisfying end.

    Not there now but I should be roaming about later. In the multilayer stuff when there is a floating gun how the hell do you pick it up?

    I revisited online this week after my initial disappointment, it’s got a lot better with less people randomly killing me for no reason, money seems a bit easier to come by as well. I like sneaking up on people whilst they are fishing (they can’t see the radar then) and stowing a perfect pelt on their horse as a surprise gift then leaving before being spotted.

    I also like taking revenge on those that do randomly kill me by stalking them afterwards until they quit and load another map.

    You need to read the rest of the thread, it’s a running gag.

    Or a tradition, or an old charter, or something.

    The game is so good, I’m only indulging when I’ve got a chunk of time put aside, so not played much yet – got three nights in a hotel for work next week and hoping for lots of spare time, how well do PS4s travel…? 🙂

    Legendary Aligator is a monster!

    I’m enjoying fishing and camping a bit too much. Set up by the lake, good fire going, catch and eat some fish. I should really be smoking weed to enjoy it so much.

    I’ve completely changed my mind on this one. I’ve fought through the rage and awful control scheme and I’m really enjoying it now.

    Buy GTA5 tom.
    Every time I load up RDR2 5 minutes later I’m like “why am I not in a vehicle?” even the pushbikes in GTAV are less tedious than this **** horse.

    Anyone want to buy my copy PM me (PS4)
