Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

Thank God for dynamite eh?

I was going to shoot the horse, but it wouldn't let me. Then I tried running him until his stamina core was completely drained, which just resulted in him bucking me off, so I had to resort to the dynamite.

Quoted from jester523:

Yeah, I've had a few things I considered weird. I walked by two people at a campsite, they asked to go away and then unprovoked shot at me. I killed them, and then I looted them, and it lowered my honor or whatever it is. So...I can kill "enemies" and loot them and it's fine, but if I kill people in self defense then no?
I also accidentally picked up a dead guy in town that someone else killed. When I put him down, I was wanted, lol. It's weird, but otherwise I'm having a lot of fun with the game.

I've run into that before as well. If you do the Left Trigger / X (Diffuse) and then ride away you're normally fine. But if you don't say anything and linger, they typically open up on you.

As for looting, I seem to be able to get away looting anyone that doesn't say "Stranger". When you go to loot, if you see "Stranger", it drops your Honor. You also have to be careful with stumbling on old crime scenes. I was just nosing around some dead bodies I ran across and all of a sudden boom, "Wanted - Murder" showed up. I hadn't killed anyone, but I guess since I was the one standing next to the dead bodies, the witness was going to say I did it.

Make sure to wear your bandana too when you rob people and kill them.

I think this is what I've learned about the wanted system..... It may or may not be 100% correct but this seems to work for me.

The wanted icon doesn't automatically mean they've figured out who you are. If there is a specific witness that saw you, you have the chance to chase them down as a red dot on the map. If there is no specific witness, lawmen will spawn in the area and start coming toward the crime scene. You have to get away from them without being spotted, and then the wanted meter will start to drain and go away.

I've escaped 90% of my wanted crimes by just finishing the job and getting out of there, while wearing my bandana.

Have you been successful in threatening them? I've tried chasing them down and firing my gun in the air or hitting the threaten button, but they just keep running away. Normally I end up having to shoot them in the back of the head.

Yeah, a couple of times. I think one time i had to keep beating them until they decided not to tell. You gotta jump off your horse and take them to the ground or fist fight with them.

I've lasso'd them as well.

Saw a YouTube video saying there's a bank job early on that solves all the money problems.

How does one reach this? I'd like to pay off my bounties so I don't get ambushed every 5 minutes.

There's also an unlimited gold glitch if you don't feel like sweating $ in the game (just don't pick up the pamphlet in the chest, that kills the glitch).

I’m on chapter 3 and so far the game is just ok. Kinda frickin dumb and not very enjoyable cause most of the game is just cinematic BS instead of actually playing. Gone are the days of good gaming, I’d rather be controlling the action instead of great graphics. O well, I prefer pinball anyways!

Games are definitely changing but therenare still alot of games that are non stop action out there. This just happens to be one of those games that is story driven. I am loving it so far and i enjoy watching the cut scenes.

I kind of felt this way through the first half, but the story picks up soon. It was hard to stop playing it at a point.

#363 3 months ago

I really want to dive into this game but I get bored after an hour or so each time I play it.

Seems these days if you make a movie or game "pretty" enough it will get unending praise.... kind of like pinball machines!

You should be able to shout at them to stop once you get close enough... then threaten them. Some will comply... some will not.

Just put all your money into goods or the camp... then go into town and surrender when the lawmen approach you. Spend the night in jail, and the bounty clears

Stop running yellow mission to yellow mission... if you've progressed that far without doing much you aren't doing enough of the side missions or hunting etc.

#367 3 months ago

Just spent half an hour talking and celebrating with the gang in the camp after a crucial mission. The effort they put in purely optional conversations is absolutely insane! People were referencing stuff that happend hours ago, every character is so detailed out in its unique characterisation, i find it breathtaking.
It perfectly fits my playstyle, just slowly meandering through and going with the flow

Tried that and was successful in one state. Tried in another and Dutch busts me out of jail and I'm even more wanted there!

But at least it cleared one state for me. Makes roaming more fun.

Mine too. I find my self just roaming around hunting, fishing and exploring the map.

#371 3 months ago

Well I finally beat the game and epilogue, forgot to check my hours but it's a bunch

Now to go back and meander around some more!

Wow. So, did you just take a week off of work? LOL. I'm enjoying the game, but on track for completion like 5 years from now. Damn kids!!!

#373 3 months ago

I feel you! Mine don‘t like me blocking the TV with the ‚Horse-game‘ so it‘s just my sleeptime that suffers

#374 3 months ago

I thought the Arabian was pretty easy to tame.

Also I dick around for hours between missions and always have plenty of cash. Fencing watches, rings, etc is lucrative

I did have 1 day off work Mostly nights and some weekends, I've been playing since it came out so almost 4 weeks now.

#376 3 months ago

I completed the game story and am still thoroughly enjoying it. There's a lot to explore, and I keep finding more hidden and weird stuff that's unexpected. The challenges are fun to chase and can be very difficult.

If you feel like you're just in a movie, try tracking down some treasure maps, getting all the legendary animals, crafting up perks at the Fence store, and running through the challenges. The challenge completions also build up your health, stamina, and dead eye max levels and unlock gear that boosts your player at the Trapper.

Hunting and crafting is cool, too. Explosive and incendiary shotgun shells are something to see!

Press left on the d-pad for all the extra side missions and challenges. There's a lot going on outside of the story, which does pick up in the later chapters.

Ive been playing it every day since it came out and Im still far from the end.

Now Im away for the week with no tv and wish more than ever that the game got released on the Switch !

#378 3 months ago

Did any of you guys do the gold bar multiplying cheat? I did this and it kind of soured this great game for me. If you havent tried the hack, dont do it. Rockstar as usual has put out a real gem.

Quoted from flynnibus:

The side missions are kind of boring and pointless though for the most part. I did some for little reward, not really worth it. I have a hard enough time just making it through all the main missions, I'm in chapter 4 now.

All the missions are kind of the same:
A character has a brilliant idea to make lots of money, rescue, or steal something
They embark on the mission, every is going smooth
Things suddenly go horribly wrong
They make some money but far less than the were hoping most of the time
Repeat over and over

It's like the Harry Potter movies, where everyone hates harry, a mysterious evil person shows up, harry gets in trouble but then the evil person is actually good and helps save the day and people like harry again, but everyone hates him by the next movie to repeat the cycle 7 times.

Are you telling me that Dutch has a plan???

#381 3 months ago

Finished the game but missed a few trophies... one of which I will need to restart the game from the beginning to complete....

There is a bug that screws up the side quests from members in your camp and you won't be able to complete their missions in Chapter 2 and 3. This happens when you fail the mission “Polite Society, Valentine Style” and restart from check point. You need to restart from the beginning (if you die) in order to not activate the bug.... UGH. The NPCs will show up later on in Chapter 4 but you won't be able to complete their side quests.

Just a heads up for people that aren't that far into the game.

I was having trouble, but I found a technique that worked for me. Tried to break him, got bucked off. He ran off, so I shot him. Revived him and then I was able to try a few more times without him running away, I guess because he was so weak from just being dead? Anyway it worked.

I've just been goofing with the game and not doing many missions. I'm finding that fun. Just kind of riding around experiencing the world.

I gave up on taming horses after realizing I suck at it and end up shooting them but I’m quite good at making money so I spent 1000 on one !

#384 3 months ago

I caught 2 wild horses last night! They're not worth much though.

Still in Chapter 2. When do I start making real money? Heard there's a bank robbery at some point?

uhh... except for getting the items that help you later. Or getting those legendary upgrades... or improving what you can carry, fight with, etc.

In games like these the 'expanse' part is not just about the story, but farming and improving your character.

horse business sucks... wagons aren't much better.

Fencing items looted off characters is good money for just floating around. Bounties are decent money to collect. I used to work just to get a few hundred, but lately have gotten quests in chapter 3 that just really opened up the cashflow and I've upgraded everything in camp and bought basically everything I can.

Don't buy guns.. most can be given to you, found, or paid for by a NPC you saved.

I'm on chapter 2, so no money yet either from missions, but there are a few treasure maps available which lead to 500 to 1500 in gold bars.

I have almost zero upgrades and haven't had any trouble completing missions. On normal it isn't that hard. It's not like the witcher 3 where the upgrades are almost required or the game gets really hard.

#389 3 months ago

I just finished the bank robbery. Pretty simple. I am working on getting a better satchel now and some side jobs. Not trying to run through the game. It’s good so far and exspansive. I did catch the Arabian took me awhile but deff worth it. She can really book! Named her Garfunkel

Yeah Maybe your right. I'll just keep playing it and I'll know in about 5 years probably lol

#393 3 months ago

I had a race horse prior to getting the legendary horse.. I don't know if it really feels all that different in most stuff.

#394 3 months ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

It’s definitely a bit faster, and more sturdy, at least compared to the race horse that was the preorder bonus.

#395 89 days ago

I pimp out my guns big time so even if I get one free I spend hundreds on gold plating.
And I agree with Flynn. Selling looted items is much more lucrative that wagons. I just blow away a camp of o'driscals at night and they've got plenty of good stuff on them

#396 89 days ago

I also like to wear around ridiculous hats made from legendary animals. Then when a npc's mocks me I kill and loot them

#397 89 days ago
Quoted from captainadam_21:

Some of that jewelry can be used to craft perks at the Fence.

I remember the gold earrings and silver earrings were hard to find, so don't sell those!

As a general rule, I don't sell things that have "can be used for crafting" in the description.

#398 89 days ago

I have been working a ton of hours and havent had any time to play Red Dead but i have a 4 day weekend coming and i am going to play alot of this and pinball too, cant wait! I need to try and find my stupid War Horse that disappeared because the one im riding now sucks.

#399 89 days ago

Was wondering if you drag along another horse for when you go on those big hunts. That way you can carry back the fur and the meat.

#400 89 days ago

Who needs the meat? Plenty of deer near camp if you really need some. Otherwise I leave room for pelts
