Red Dead Redemption 2 Rockstar

While I have not beaten Red Dead Redemption 2 yet, my Xbox keeps telling me through storytelling Achievements that I pass on as about 98.5% of other players. That will happen if you play 1

0-12 hours a day as if it were your job (it's my job), and so I think I'm in able to write one of my traditional "ten things" articles before everyone else is too deeply engrossed in them.

Some of the "must know" entries were so urgent, I have already written articles about some of them, but if you missed them, I had to make sure they were included here, so I apologize for any repetitions, and I reserve the right to add more as I discover them (this game is so big that this list is likely to be 50 things could be). but for now, I think that's a good starting point.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a great game, but some el elements of it are completely unfathomable with some weird Rockstar design / gameplay / UI choices. But if you want to get the most out of the game, here are ten things I wish I knew when I started Red Dead Redemption 2.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Rockstar

1. Your Missing Hat is on Your Horse

First, the answer to the most important urgent question of Red Dead 2 : "What the hell happened to my hat?" Your hat will fall in the meantime almost all fistfights and many intense shootouts, and this has meant that many players wander for hours for hours, if they can not understand their exact steps.

Well, good news. Buried in the labyrinth of wheel inventory options, your hat can always be found on your horse if you lose it. I thought it was just your basic hat you started with, but the more hats I bought, I found that I could find all of them on my horse, so no hat is really lost.

As a side note, you can save outfits and keep them on your horse. I think upgrading saddlebags will give you more equipment niches, so it's good to change your clothes depending on the city or weather.

2. Fast Travels Are There, But It Is Well Hidden

My colleague Dave Thier, who reviewed Red Dead 2 for us before the start, managed it all To go through 80 hours without figuring out that there is a fast travel system in the game, but since the game never directs you to that, I have to.

There is a camp upgrade that you can buy, which makes the Dutch more comfortable Beds are there. I mean, who wants to spend $ 200 on it, but it's necessary to unlock the next level of upgrades, which is a $ 300 Fast Travel card that will be near Arthur's bed. Fast Travel comes with some reservations in Red Dead . You can only travel from Camp not from it, and your horse must be in the camp for it to work. To make sure your horse is always in stock, buy the Horse Station upgrade in the ledger. So yes, that will save you some time, but because of its limited use (you can not just travel from point to point on the map as it is Fallout ), you will still be rides a lot through the area.

3. You can travel on autopilot, but it is risky

Continuing in this direction, there is a possibility to own yourself at home "piloting", which is poorly explained in the game. I thought "cinematic mode" is simply making the game look cool in boring segments. What I did not notice when your horse is in the race, you can switch to Cinema mode and they will follow the road that leads to your current waypoint without you having to press any buttons.

There are a number of downsides to do this though. First of all, this will be slower than driving manually because your horse is only driving at "medium" speed and does not sprint. This will not allow you to stick any horse on the way. But more importantly, because Red Dead is a dynamic world, you'll often run into trouble in cinema mode, be it on other horses or wagons, if the autopilot fails by a hair, or on certain occasions. Last night I put myself on autopilot to return to camp just to stumble into a roadblock that was trying to take revenge on me. I saw myself being cinematically shredded by a Gatling pistol that they had previously on the car I could manage to regain control. You often have to be aware when traveling.

4. Changing Attitudes Will Help Improve Movement

The last thing I'll say about movement and travel in the game is something I've already written about but it has to be repeated. If you access accessibility settings in the game, you can change the process from "holding" the A / X button to "toggling" the A / X button. While this does not work on horseback or sprinting (you still have to mash A / X for that), it's a way to automatically run without keeping A constant for 90% of the game. This also works when you're crouching, which is helpful.

5. A headshot is a headshot

One thing I learned when learning from Red Dead 2 is that, like most Rockstar games, it's very, very, not RPG. What that means is that the more you play, you do not really get into stronger opponents who need more shots to get them done. Everyone is just … human, and as such I would not stress your arsenal too much.

What I mean by "headshot is a headshot" is that you can use your base Cattleman revolver and so long when you shoot headshots at enemies, it kills them just like a high powered sniper. This is not Destiny or The Division where you can throw a million shots into a hostile face and they will survive because of their level. Bullets are bullets here and will kill anyone as they should "unless", of course, you. Sure, cooler guns for faster reloads and harder-shooting body shots, I suppose, but if you can hit these headshots consistently, you can pretty much use whatever you want, and no gun is too shitty to go through a mission.

6. Skip Zero "Minor" Gang Side Missions

Red Dead is full of small and large missions, but those I can not recommend to you are the that you find in the camp where a person wants to do something simple, like fishing or hunting or robbing a random stagecoach. While in other games these types of missions would simply bring quests, in Red Dead 2 they are not only extremely interesting, but also some of the best character development moments the game has with various members of your gang

Red Dead which assigns you different gang members for the main missions, you can often go for hours without interacting with a particular gang member if they are not on the list. But these side missions will mate you with at least one in every person in your camp at least once and they will really make you love these characters. My favorite missions so far have been with Lenny, Charles and Kieran, although they keep coming back and I'm not sure when they'll end. Do not ignore it or you will miss some of the best conversations in the game. If you do not, they will not be there later as you move through the story.

7. A Few Useful UI Shortcuts

Back to gameplay, here are a few useful UI things that make playing a little less Make Startup (Options, Whatever) to Invoke the Card Immediately Press a key in the menu

  • Hold down B / O when you are deep in the menus to instantly jump to the game to return instead of beating it millions of times
  • There is a manual save / load option Red Dead in the Story section of the menu
  • Hold down the left mouse button on the D-pad to bring up your journal (read it, it's good). Just press the D-Pad on the left to see your tasks and challenges
  • Red Dead can also be played completely in first-person mode (which makes it feel a bit faster). Tap on the touchpad on the PS4 or on the Xbox button to switch back and forth
  • There are probably more that I have not discovered, but that's enough to get started.

    8. Do not miss the Dual Wielding

    I did not plan to record this one, but it seems that some people have somehow missed the fact that they are quite early in the game's ability get to the dual swinging pistols. After completing a particularly bloody mission with Micah (you know the one), you get a new holster that lets you use two different pistols / revolves / sawed shotguns at the same time. To do that, you go to the weapon wheel, where there is a two-headed symbol that allows you to use two weapons. Double the damage, but double the reload time. Nevertheless, it rules.

    9. These flashing red icons

    These confused me for a while and I thought I would add them here. It will sometimes be a strange red blinking symbol over your horse health, which is actually a "brush" symbol, meaning that you need to brush your horse a few times to remove the dust and make it disappear. I think that will cause him to do worse in some way, move more slowly or regenerate slower, so you'll want to delete it as fast as possible. You can also run it through water to clean it as well.

    In the camp, you often see three red icons in the corner of the screen. This indicates how much stock is currently in stock. If the symbols for Sphere, Medical Cross, and Food are red, it means you're running empty. White is something stuff is still there, yellow means fully stocked. I still can not figure out if this stuff will automatically re-gens, but if it does, it will take long time, so you might want to shell out just a few bucks for a manual restart to prevent this Event. It costs much less than it would buy all the stuff in the city individually.

    10. Improving Health and the Dead Eye

    While it's pretty straightforward to run your perseverance, you'll probably find that your health and your dead eyes are not are good. Dead Eye will slowly increase in head-shots, but strangely enough, if you perform these tedious tasks around the camp, which are marked by black dots, you will get an increase of +5 dead-eye per task. Hunting is probably the best way to get up fast.

    The health I found goes up quickly if you often get punches (although these usually come with bounties) or landing stealth / throwing knife kills. But health will also be a little bit stronger from the fishery. In particular, sea fishing on a boat where you land larger fish will give you a solid amount of health and will take you to a higher level if you fish frequently.

    Again, this is a massive game and there's a lot more to say, but I hope that was helpful and you learned a thing or two. Sorry for everything you already knew, but it's easy for some people to miss basic things in this game. Merry Hunt
