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.
