POPULAR 😥Time to Say Goodbye👋 RDO with Santa Claus #4
Well, hello there, mootizens of Earth! Christmas is over, and we gotta welcome the new year now! Ah... Time really does fly, doesn't it? Did y'all get what you wanted for this Christmas? Don't be sad if you didn't😉 It doesn't necessarily mean you've been naughty this year! It's just that words don't really travel fast up where I live, and I might not have heard what you wished for this Christmas😔 Anyway, Santa's been busy preparing and giving out gifts and didn't even realize that it's almost time for us to part ways😥
Damn, just when I was about to have some fun! I swear I could have rekt all of you if only I had enough time to do so😂 Rudolph agrees too, ya know. Right, buddy?
What's that? You're asking me if I'm crying right now? HELL NO! I'm not crying... It's because the damn ninjas are hiding in the back, cutting onions😥
We had a good run, buddy..., but it pains me to say..., with every beginning, there always has to be an end.
Come on bud, let's walk to the North Pole. How about a Karaoke-off until we get there? Just you and me.
🎵Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man under cover but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special🎵
Here we are, Rudolph. We are back at the North Pole's gate. Well, you know what they say, there's no place like home. It's been a hell of a ride this Christmas😉 I can't imagine what would happen next year😲
I really can't express how thankful I am for those who have supported me through comments, likes, and follows! Just remember, mootboys and mootgirls. Santa's not leaving for good. Stay happy and live your life to the fullest! Until next Christmas!🎅
Santa Claus is evolving......!
Congratulations! Santa Claus evolved into Gandalf the Grey!
And so begins the new adventure...
POPULAR Dead Eye Abilities - Red Dead Online Guide - 3 -
There are three important things you should consider when it comes to competing against other players. The number one is of course the understanding of what mode and map you're playing in. Each mode requires different strategies, and visualizing the map will help you occupy the high ground, similar to how other online shooting games work. Another thing you should always remind yourself to do is dodging. By pressing the square(X for Xbox) while holding down the aim button, you can dodge enemies attack which could potentially save your life from getting headshots. Last but not least is using Dead Eye and passive abilities. These abilities are the gems of your Red Dead Online experience, and I'm here to guide you through a number of abilities available in the game for your better Red Dead Experience.
As many of you already know, there are a total of 4 card slots for you to assign ability cards. The first slot is for a Dead Eye ability and the others are for passive abilities. If you wish to check on my guide on passive abilities, please click the link down below:
Dead Eye Abilities
1. A Moment To Recuperate
★While Dead Eye is active, you slowly regenerate health. Taking any damage will cancel Dead Eye.
First things first, when you finish the tutorial in Red Dead Online, you're given an opportunity to assign one of three available Dead Eye ability cards which are 'A Moment to Recuperate,' 'Focus Fire,' and 'Paint It Black.' While it's undeniably true that these cards will help you tremendously as you progress, but as you rank up, the first three abilities will feel somewhat mediocre compared to unlockables. At least that's what I think.
'A Moment to Recuperate' is an ability with health regeneration. Since there's a better version of this ability card, 'Quite an Inspiration' which unlocks at rank 44, if you're looking to use a character with high recuperation until then, this is the one for you. Because you're not allowed to use all passive abilities and their slots as they're locked for low-rank players, there are limitations to what you can use during the battle, and there isn't much to consider until you reach rank 50. I recommend using 'Come Back Stronger' and 'The Unblinking Eye.' Soon after, you'll be able to unlock the last slot and all the other abilities needed, and you'll no longer feel the need to use this ability.
2. Focus Fire
★While Dead Eye is active, you and your team members deal a little more damage. If more than one member of your team has this ability active, the effects do not stack.
Unlike 'A Moment to Recuperate,' 'Focus Fire' concentrates on dealing more damage to your enemies. As a sole offensive Dead Eye ability, there are no other substitutions for more DPS. This is the one to go if you want to maximize the damage you deal. My recommendation for passive abilities is 'Peak Condition,' 'Eye for an Eye,' and 'Cold Blooded.' This setup is to deal more damage with the ability to heal yourself in battles. If you choose to play shotguns, 'Landon's Patience' may be a good option to consider as it's the best option for short range combats. The closer your target is, It raises the damage you deal.
Personally, I don't use 'Focus Fire' as it doesn't feel efficient when it comes to dealing players in the Showdown Series. A shot to the head always kills enemies in one go under the premise that they're not using Dead Eye or 'Never Without One.' As enemies will fall under one or two shots to the head, for the moment, survivability seems to be main thing to consider rather than dealing more damage.
3. Paint It Black
★While Dead Eye is active, you can paint targets onto enemies. Fire your weapon to shoot all marked targets. Each shot drains Dead Eye.
'Paint it Black' is a classic Dead Eye ability that lets you target and mark enemies for precise shooting. While it is true that it is easy to use since this is the ability you've been using all along in the singleplayer mode, it may not be appropriate when you're competing in the Showdown Series where fast shooting and dodging are crucial to winning matches. This ability may come in handy when you're using a tomahawk in 'Name Your Weapon' or a bow and arrow or throwing knives in 'Make it Count.' As this ability is by no means tied to any characteristics of passive abilities, feel free to make your own set of cards that fits your taste.
4. Slow and Steady
Unlockable at rank 24
★While Dead Eye is active, you take a little less damage and headshots do not kill you outright. You cannot run or sprint.
As I've told you in the last post about passive abilities, Slow and Steady combined with appropriate abilities will make your character very tanky. Using 'Eye for an Eye' to recover some of the Dead Eye meter and 'The Unblinking Eye' to make it last longer will be helpful to keep the ability going. For the last slot, I recommend choosing either 'Come Back Stronger' or 'Cold Blooded' which would help you get your health back. You can also consider 'Strange Medicine,' but note that its demerit may slow your health recovery. You might think it's a good idea to equip this with 'Never Without One' as your hat gives you a second chance from headshots, but in the Showdown Series, hats never regen once you're killed for the first time. Because you receive more damage afterwards without a hat, I wouldn't consider it a feasible option. I haven't tried it myself, but if you can change your set of abilities during a match, it might be worth a try to switch abilities after you lose your hat. Let me know in the comments if anyone has ever tried so.
5. Quite an Inspiration
Unlockable at rank 44
★While Dead Eye is active you and our allies slowly regenerate health. If more than one member of your team has this ability active, the effects do not stack.
Compared to 'A Moment To Recuperate,' this ability is a much better version which allows both you and your teammates to heal as well as the ability to heal while getting shot at. As much as this sounds suitable for PVPs, I don't recommend using this ability in the Showdown Series, for the fact that it doesn't allow you to avoid getting killed by headshots. Because most players are likely to aim for your head in most situations, it's better to utilize 'Slow and Steady' to mitigate the damage or 'Slippery Bastard' to hinder other players from aiming for your head. It may be an option to use this card with 'Never Without One' to prevent you from getting killed from a headshot, but I'd like to think it's better for you to use other cards than to waste a slot for passive ability and endure its drawback. 'Quite an Inspiration' is therefore more suitable when you're playing against computer A.I. in missions with friends. With this card, I recommend you choose passives with defensive or healing abilities, 'Come Back Stronger,' 'Cold Blooded,' 'The Unblinking Eye,' and 'Take the Pain Away.'
6. Slippery Bastard
Unlockable at rank 50
★While Dead Eye is active enemy players cannot lock onto you, and you cannot lock onto them. Other enemies are a little less accurate when shooting at you. The rate at which your Dead Eye drains is dramatically increased.
Slippery Bastard works better when you're facing inexperienced players. Since most players depend their shooting skills on aim-assist, their reflex forces them to aim and shoot the moment they spot an enemy. Exploiting such a psychological behavior combined with 'Slippery bastard' and dodging, it's easy to trick players to miss shots. Just remember to use it intermittently between dodging and shooting so that you can save some of Dead Eye meter for later. The recommended passive abilities are 'Come Back Stronger' 'To Fight Another Day,' 'The Unblinking Eye.' The reason I put 'Come Back Stronger' is that even though your opponents won't be able to benefit from aim-assist, they will be able to hit you through free-aiming, and it's safe to have at least one recovery ability in case you get severely damaged which is also the reason I put 'To Fight Another Day.' It's to mitigate the damage you're taking while avoiding attacks from enemies. As for other recovery and combat abilities, you'll be less likely to use them as you are going to be deprived of aim-assist as well as enemy players while the ability is in active. Lastly, 'The Unblinking Eye' is for prolonging the duration of the ability.
Please do remember that Red Dead Online is still undergoing its beta. There's no definite meta in RDO as of now other than a few suggestions. To top it off, more content is in development, and surely, this guide will eventually go past its time and will get outdated. Nonetheless, I hope this guide helps you on your journey to find the optimal setup for your character. What matters the most is how you decide to play it rather than following the trails of others. As always, Happy Gaming!
POPULAR 🎅Santa Too OP Pls Nerf😡 RDO with Santa Claus #3
Hohoho, mootie moot mootboys and mootgirls😎 Having a fantastic holiday season so far? Santa's coming to town, and this time I'm back again with another episode in Red Dead Online😉 As promised, Rudolph and I are hopping on a train to take down some of y'all in the Showdown Series.
Mmm Baby... Look how handsome and charming I look😘 I must say, when Mrs. Claus and I married, she didn't do it for the money OR my job. She knew exactly what she wanted, my irresistible handsome face.
Speak of the devil, I see a lady over there coming to get my head. Hey there, young lady, want to go have a drink when this is all over? I know a great place near North Pole, and it's not an everyday offer😉
Hey! That's not very nice. Have you no respect for the elderly? I may look young and handsome, but I'm sure as hell not young as you think😆 If you want my number, you can just ask. You don't need to be so embarrassed.😘
Don't tell Mrs. Claus I said that, mooties🤫
Argh... Almost got that little son of a 🤬 How could he have hit me so accurately with a throwing knife? I GET IT NOW. He must have been a hacker. There's no way a guy can take me down, Santa Claus, the greatest Red Dead player in all of North Pole. Yep, it's the only explanation😤
What the 🤬 This load of ball-sack head just stabbed me to death and threw me to the ground. Is this how you treat Santa Claus who's been giving you gifts ever since you were a kid? You ungrateful 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
Now you guys are in for a treat😡

POPULAR Anti-Griefing Measures
Ever since the launch of Red Dead Online, players have voiced together that there needs to be a way to punish gamers that abuse griefing. According to Rockstar Newswire a few days ago, they're currently working to come up with a patch for new anti-griefing measures as well as additional content. We don't know yet when the patches would arrive for the moment.
POPULAR Passive Abilities - Red Dead Online Guide - 2 -
Howdy, Mootin' Tootin' Cowboys. Red Dead Online's been out for 3 weeks now, and I thought it's about time we go back to the basic and learn about what passive abilities are and their effects to make your cowboy life a whole lot easier. In Red Dead Online, there are a total of 24 abilities to begin with. Out of 24, only 6 of them are Dead Eye abilities which leaves 18 passive abilities. Today, I will be going through passive abilities only. If you want to know about the rest, please look forward to future posts😉
1. When can I start using passive abilties?
As players reach level 10, they're given a slot to assign the first passive ability along with two available abilities which are 'Horseman' and 'Come Back Stronger.' The second slot becomes available at level 20, and the last one opens at 40. As assigning cards is by no means permanent, feel free to swap abilities whenever you want. Also, each passive ability can provide you with improved effects when higher tiers are purchased.
2. How do I know if my passive abilities are active?
By opening up the weapon wheel, you can quickly check what passive abilities you're currently equipped with.
Also, when your passive abilities are active, you'll be able to see which one's doing the work from checking the top-right corner of the screen. It's right above your current ammo.
3. What passive abilities are there?
18 passive ability cards are divided into three categories which are 'Combat,' 'Recovery,' and 'Defense.' I've made up the list in an image for your better understanding. The numbers on the left indicate on what level you have to reach to unlock a certain ability.
Let's go over them one by one and see which one fits you the best.
★You deal more damage while riding on a horse
★You deal more damage when you're close to death
★if you choose to delay 15 seconds between each shooting, you'll deal more damage
The Short Game
★The closer your target is, the more damage you deal and vice versa
★Lassoing enemies make them take damage for every second
★Every consecutive shot you nail on the same target inflicts more damage
Come Back Stronger
★You regenerate sooner when you take damage.
★When your stamina's 75% or higher, you deal more damage
Eye for an Eye
★Each headshot restores a certain amount of Dead Eye meter.
The Gift of Focus
★The Dead Eye meter restoration from items and abilities is increased. You deal less damage as a drawback.
★Every time you deal damage to your opponent, you recover health. Health recovery speed gets halved as a drawback.
★Health regenerates for 5 seconds after you kill an enemy.
★You take less damage while in cover
To Fight Another Day
★You take less damage while sprinting
The Unblinking Eye
★Dead Eye and Eagle Eye drain slower; therefore, they last longer
Take the Pain Away
★Reviving a teammate makes you and the revived take less damage for 8 seconds
Of Single Purpose
★You take less damage from bullets when you're unarmed or using a melee weapon
Never Without One
★Your hat prevents you from getting a one-shot kill from a headshot. If you don't wear a hat, you receive more damage as a drawback.
4. What options are there to win the Showdown series?
As a die hard PVP user, I recommend utilizing passive abilities that help improve the usage of Dead Eye abilities. As mentioned above, I will go over Dead Eye abilities in the future, but for the moment, I highly recommend 'Slow and Steady' which makes you receive less damage from enemy players and prevents you dying from a headshot. Combined with 'The Unblinking Eye' and 'Eye For An Eye,' it makes your character incredibly tanky. I recommend purchasing upgrades for all the abilities I mentioned; however, thanks to the video RestInPeaceHalfLife3 brought a few days ago, we could see that there isn't much difference between level 2 and 3 for The Unblinking Eye. Therefore, you might want to hold your decision to purchase level 3 for said ability.
What are the benefits of having high honor?
I've just finished playing the story mode and entered online, and I noticed that there's also an honor system in rdo as well. But I just can't find the meaning of it. I know NPCs give out different quests depending on what honor level you're in right now, but once I've gotten that cleared out, why would I need to stay good if there isn't any reward for it? Can anyone let me know?
How to Gain Weight in Red Dead 2 Online - Get in My Belly
Do you have issues with keeping on weight while always being on the move to avoid the law? Well, you're not the only one who has to keep one's self in good spirits. Keeping up a healthy weight means having a higher health bar. This is going to be somewhat radical in a game that's about moving around a lot and shooting people, but not moving around as much & eating will slow your weight loss just like in real life. Additionally, you're going to have to spend some time fishing and hunting and a whole lot of camping to keep yourself in good spirits (i.e. a higher health bar).
POPULAR Quick and easy money by fishing in Blackwater!
Just bring a lure and cast it on the lake! I guarantee you'll get a sturgeon every single time which you can sell for $7.25 each. There's a butcher close by, and it doesn't take more than half a minute go back and forth. Catch 2 at a time and stash it on the horse, and you'll get $14.50 for less than every 5 minute or so.
POPULAR Rudolph You're out! RDO with Santa #2
Hohoho, citizens of Moot! How is Christmas season treating y'all? As many of you can already tell, my name's Santa Claus, and I'm a magical old fella who brings jollyful gifts at this time of year! And I'm back for more adventures here in Red Dead Online! Do I not look fancy today? Well, you see, I received some cash and gold bars as a gift from Rockstar the other day, and I thought to myself, why don't I spend this for myself instead of buying gifts for others for once? After all, Santa wants gifts as much as others do, you know😄 So I got myself a fancy hat and a jacket! Why am I not at work, you say? Christmas is less than two weeks away, and Santa's gotta rest easy before the real job begins. As I've told you before, we're going out for some hunting with Rudolph today! Sounds exciting, doesn't it? Without further ado, let the hunt begin!
Hohoho! Hey there, Rudolph! You seem awfully energetic today.
Argh... Would you mind slowing down a little bit, old friend? You see, I'm getting on in years these days, and the pain from Lumbago is literally killing me if you know what I mean😉
WTF, Rudolph? That does it! I've had it with you and your goddamn attitude. The hunting's over, and I'm gonna look for a new partner for this Christmas! You're fired, Rudolph. Don't ever let me see you in North Pole again.
....But you gotta stay here until I find a new partner because that's what the contract says. If you don't want a million dollar lawsuit, you better freaking listen to what I say fella.
Hey, I see an elk up ahead. Maybe I can tame it and teach it to be the new Rudolph. A Rocky Mountain Cow Elk, huh? I'll call him Rocky Balboa😂
Come to Papa! Rocky!
Huh? I can't break and tame an elk? Welp, I guess I've got no choice but to end this poor fella's life🙁 What's that? You're asking me why I didn't just release it? Well, Santa's gotta eat too, you know. Food just doesn't make itself out of thin air, you dummies🤣
Umm... Roasted elk meat...Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. Wanna have a bite, Rudolph? Huh? You don't like eating meat? You're a herbivore? What the hell's a herbivore? You clearly don't know what you're missing.😕
Now that I've taken care of that, let's look for more potential candidates!
And now's the CHANCE!!!
What the!? I can't tame a deer either? Then what exactly the hell can I do in this game?🤣 I guess this is going to be my snack for this winter. You can't go wrong with some perfectly cooked venison jerky after all😉
Oh hey! A bunch of wolves up ahead. Maybe I can ask them to be my partner. I can form a team of wolves with an awesome looking sled. How cool would that be?
Hey fellas! Care to join me to the North Pole? We've got elves, gifts, polar bears and everything! I'm sure you guys will like it! It'll be like Tahiti island, except that it's going to be hella COLD!
HEY! That's not very nice. If you don't like the cold weather, just say so. Let's just talk.
Do you really have to do this?
This is not going to end well for y'all🤠
Ballocks! I've killed them all! Now what do I do...
Well, I'm out of ideas. Wanna partner up and ride with me again, boah? You know what they say, "Better the devil you know than the devil you don't." Kinda ironic that it's coming out of Santa's mouth, isn't it?😈
That's it for today, folks! Just remember, do not try to have a word with wolves. They can be bitchy sometimes, and they taste nowhere as good as beef. Umm... Beef... I'd kill for some grilled t-bone steak. Next time, we're setting off to have some fun at the Showdown Series😉

POPULAR Red Dead Online Beta Week 1 Update
Red Dead Online Beta is having an update, and I'd say, it's pretty impressive. There isn't any additional content yet, but I like their idea of increasing the reward for missions. Also, $250 and 15 gold bars for all players? It's not much but will definitely help players who are looking to start a posse of their own. It's kind of a letdown that there still isn't a passive mode though. They need to do something about troll players fast.
POPULAR 🎉good news, rockstar IS NOT going to reset player's progress after the online beta ends🎉
So good news, Rockstar has been quoted by express.co.uk stating that:
“For players concerned about the potential for progress and stat resets, we currently do not have any plans to reset them as part of the beta rollout.
“We are currently still working on game stability and economy rebalancing for an update that we hope to release later this week.
POPULAR Naughty or Nice? RDO with Santa Claus #1
Hohoho Moot gangs. Santa Claus here, and it's Christmas time again! I'm back with a bunch of presents for you, and this time, I'm in Red Dead Online! That's right, a video game.
Onto the world of RDO, shall we?
Have you seen my friend, Rudolph? He's been a faithful companion over the years, and he came along with me to Red Dead Online for exhilarating adventures! What's that? You're asking where Mrs. Claus, the elves and other deer are? You don't believe that I'm the real Santa Claus, you say? HAVE SOME GODDAMN FAITH, PEOPLE!😤
Since I'm just as clueless as you are of what we are to do in the Wild West, let's see what Rudolph and I are capable of when we team up together😉
Flying? I guess not.😲
Rudolph seems to be having a bit of trouble. Poor thing. He's depressed as ever that he's no longer able to fly like he could up in the North Pole. What did you say? You are worried about his well being after the fall? No worries, folks! Rudolf is doing mighty fine, and I've made sure that he got a nice pat on the back afterwards.
Oh wait, fellas! looks like we have some visitors! Let's go say hi and see if they've been nice enough to get gifts for this Christmas.
Well, hello to you too, CAPTAINEPICXD. Merry Christmas! I'm putting you on the nice list for being so polite to the elderly. Have you finished writing down your Christmas wish list? You want another video game, you say? Fallout 76 it is then!
You too, ZOMBIEBABYTV. It's always nice to see a well mannered person in the middle of nowhere. What do you want for Christmas, bud? A Darth Vader action figure? I'm sorry to say that it's out of order now. How about I get you a wax figure of Mother Teresa? Have a few drinks, and you'll barely notice the difference.
Hey there, KRUNCHYTHECLOWN. Merry Christmas to you too, buddy. Don't worry, Krunchy. You know I got your back. I'll make sure to get you the sex doll you've always wanted since 8th grade.😉
Hello there, fellas! Merry Chr...
Well, there you go, Mooties. You now know what'll happen to ya if you behave nasty to Santa with a rifle. Or better yet, never behave nasty to strangers you meet in Red Dead Online. You'll be surprised to know that dead men speak no more😎
Just remember, if you've been naughty this year, Santa IS coming to town to get you. Stay safe, fellas! Don't forget to say hi whenever you see me.😉 Next time, we're going hunting.
POPULAR How to rank up fast on rdo
Ranking up in rdo takes a long time so much so I need to tell you guys about the best way to get xp.
Fastest way to get xp is playing showdown or race series playlist. This is the best and easiest way if you are really good at pvp. Getting more kills makes a difference too and how good your team score is at the end gives you more xp. You can expect to get on average 500xp or more from showdown and around 200xp or more from racing.
Another thing to add is while doing showdown is to always go for headshots if you can reliably get the kill. Headshots give more xp! For the xp hunter go for bow and arrow headshot kills cause arrow kills give more xp too.
Not good at pvp and want to get consistent xp? Story missions is the way to go. Every mission takes about 5 to 10 minutes with a full party. Completing gets you around 100 to 300xp so it's not good compared to showdown. Don't have to deal with the randomness of fighting other players and bad teammates so that's one good thing.
When you get into the zone and best if playing with friends vs pubs then all you need to worry about is how fast you can finish and not die too much.
Doing honorable side missions can be good too giving you 100 to 200xp extra. It can pay to be good even if you want to murder the dude on screen. Adding this with the regular mission, 400 to 500xp is what you can expect to get. Not bad!
Bonus side option is to kill animals if you see them. If you see lots of birds flying around I say shoot them out of the sky for 10xp each kill. Other animals give different xp count like squirrels and deer 5xp. Bigger animals give more exp like alligators with 15xp each.
Higher rank means more stuff to unlock and buy. This is how I have been doing it and if anyone knows better ways then comment.

POPULAR 3 Things I hate about Red Dead Redemption 2
So after about more than 70 hours of Rootin´ Tootin´ Cowboy Shootin´ 2 that little pop-up window on the top left side of my TV told me I completed the game a hundret percent and thought to myself "Well finally!" because there are so many things that went on my nerves for all that time.
But seriously RDR2 isn´t a bad game. At least that´s what those guys on the internet keep telling me....
But for real it is an awesome game! The map´s awesome, the story is awesome (at least if you forget that Chapter 1-3 has ever existed) and all the stuff you can do in the open world is awesome too!
That said may the Rockstar fanboys please take a seat and cease shouting "Boooo!", cause here are 3 things I simply, and there´s no way around it, HATE about RDR2!
So your sitting in a pile of shit behind a tree stump and about 50 enemies shooting at you.
Your health core´s aproaching the end, your completely covered with your own blood and bullets are stuck in all parts of your body....
Time to enjoy some of that canned food you bought with you, right?
And suddenly I had Skyrim flashbacks....thanks Rockstar!
But seriously... didn´t the devs think of dressing material or were they just to lazy to add it?
Next thing I hate about eating is that I have to do it all the time!
It was literally the No.1 thing I did during my gameplay (No.2 is stumbling over rocks with my horses).
So I eat and eat and eat ... but then I check my player stats in the menu to find out that I´m underweight? The next few ingame days I ran around skinny like that Seth-guy from the first game and had to spend about 300$ on food in the salloon because that´s the only way to gain weight. THANKS FOR THAT!
It took me very long to decide wether I love or hate the realism in RDR2. Basically realism is a good thing. It adds that extra layer of tension to your gameplay, but you can also "over-egg the pudding".
Basically your gonna love RDR2´s realism.... until the point ingame where you fall off Mount Hagen with your horse because your horse got scared by a bear and then you have to spend the next few ingame days to find your way back to civilisation.
RDR2´s realism does so much harm that one might wonder if it´s there to help the players hate the game. Basically after the 4th time my elite arabian horse died becuase I rode it against a stone I decided I would hate RDR2`s realism.
BEING AN "OUTLAW" OUTSIDE OF STORY MISSIONS
During story missions you do all kinds of cool stuff. You blow up trains and bridges and forts and kill every inhabitant of a town BUT don`t you dare bumping into an NPC in Saint Denis during free roam. Like literally! I dismounted my horse and a NPC that happened to pass me stumbled backwards and the next thing I know is that uncountable police officers start shooting at me.
So that´s basically all the stuff I hate, yo.
Have fun stumbling with your horses over rocks and eating food midfight.
POPULAR Battle Royale in Red Dead Online? No Worries RDO Guide - 1 -
The long waited Red Dead Online is now here, and it comes with five different competitive modes to enjoy along with its own original storyline and stranger missions. I've put a link below to help you understand the general concept of each mode.
One thing to note out of said five modes is that there is a Battle Royale mode called, "Make It Count." Many of us here on moot have expressed their worries in the lounge, saying how adding a br mode in the game would feel redundant and no longer creative while others have welcomed it happily. Fret not, however, for it isn't a typical br game you've been playing all along. Make it Count mode offers features that are quite distinctive, and you need a new strategy to claim the win accordingly. I've taken the liberty of playing a few matches ahead of you, and here's what I've found out.
*Please note that the online is still in the early stage of beta, and changes will be made once it officially releases.
1. The duration of a match
Currently, Make it Count mode has a time limit of ten minutes which we don't usually see from other br games. In addition, the total number of players allowed in a single match can only go up to 32 which makes each match very short compared to other games where you have to survive against a hundred players with longer time limits. You can either join a match with a maximum of 16 players or 32 players, and there's also a four man squad match with 16 people.
2. One Hit, One Kill
The most distinguishable feature the mode has to offer is that it's designed to kill an opponent with a single shot which explains a lot about the name of the mode. Missing a shot can be fatal as your opponent can kill you just as easily. Although, it doesn't slow time anymore, using the Dead Eye ability certainly helps when you want to nail a precise kill. Just be sure to remember that in one on one situation, don't use the ability as it's faster to just aim and shoot. I recommend using it only when your opponents are facing the opposite direction from you or when you have the high ground.
One other thing you should be aware of is that as opposed to how a multiplayer shooter goes, players will aim to survive in a given map but with a forced weapon. Not only are you allowed to use a bow and knives, you'll start with only one of them according to what suits you the best. To put it simply, if you're good at handling bows, go for a bow and arrows and vice versa.
3. No Shooting, No Looting?
For the moment, the mode only allows you to use either throwing knives or a bow and arrows. While it is true that the mode does not require you to loot serious weapons and attachments to obliterate your opponents like you do in Fortnite, PUBG, and et cetera, you still do have to loot your opponent's body for more arrows and knives as your enemies will be quick to evade your attacks. At the beginning of each match, you'll be given only six ammos, and additional supplies will be lootable from killing. We are unsure whether there will be options that would let players use firearms in the future. However, additional content seems evident as we've experienced such updates from Grand Theft Auto Online multiple times.
4. Stealth is the key
As mentioned above, players allowed in a match are fewer than other games in the genre, and the map itself isn't really big. Plus, considering that a single blow from your opponent is lethal enough to kill you, the more enemies you face, the less your chance to survive becomes. With all that in mind, it's only reasonable to stay behind the bushes until the chance is right. Of course, you can always choose to go all out in the beginning, but the chance of winning will get a lot slimmer as enemy players will concentrate their fire solely on you. As previously stated, using the Dead Eye ability will come in handy when you want a clean stealth kill.
POPULAR Red Dead Online Really is the Wild West
The beta for Red Dead Online is finally underway and fans are wasting no time exploring the online world and completing its new story mode. Red Dead Online looks promising but it’s only in the beginning stages of beta and the lack of refinement shows. There were problems with the rollout, the game is far from optimized, and the features are desperately lacking. For example, your character isn’t voice acted and they didn’t include the ability to play poker with your friends. Of course, the beta stages have just begun so I’m willing to cut Rockstar some slack, but it’s important that they start addressing the community’s concerns as quickly as possible.
As an online game, interacting with other players is a huge part of the gameplay and your experience with other players can dictate how much you love or hate Red Dead Online. You’ll meet people that want to team up with you and help you out, which is awesome. But you’ll also run into people who are out to murder you at first sight and take everything you’ve got. And trust me, there’s a lot more of the 2nd type. There’s currently no “passive mode” or friendly servers which prohibit player killing, meaning that you’re going to be dying a lot. It’s not very much fun and Rockstar is going to have to do something about it ASAP because people are already getting fed up.
Microtransactions were a major feature of GTAV Online and they’re back with a vengeance in RDR2 Online. Players will be able to buy in-game gold with real-life money. Players can then use this gold buy items or gain early access to content. One concern is that Rockstar may be forcing players to purchase gold with real money if they want to be competitive. Players will need gold to access the best content, and money will be much harder to come by in the Online version. Rockstar has already begun changing the value of items between the online and single-player versions. For example, a gold watch sells for only $2 in Online versus $10 in single-player. We don’t know Rockstar’s final vision for microtransactions in Red Dead Online, but the fact that they’re featuring them from the very start of the beta is a worrying sign. Hopefully they won’t lock all the best content behind a paywall.
Red Dead Online has the foundations of something great, but its implementation of pay-to-win microtransactions and lack of crucial features have made its initial launch anything but smooth. If Rockstar is able to iron out the creases and address the community’s complaints before it’s too late, then Red Dead Online could go down as an all-time legendary game. If they fail, it will forever be remembered as the great that could have been. It’s up to Rockstar now. What will be their legacy?
POPULAR RED DEAD ONLINE BETA STARTS TOMORROW (NOV 27)
NOTE: The following text is extracted from the linked article and entirely credited to BRIAN CRECENTE of Variety:
"The beta for the online portion of “Red Dead Redemption 2” goes live in waves this week with those who purchased the Ultimate version of the game gaining access Tuesday, anyone who played on Nov. 26 gains access on Wednesday, anyone who played between Oct. 26 and Oct. 29 gets in on Thursday and everyone else by Friday.
The beta, which is free for those who own the game, first goes live at 8:30 a.m. ET and is designed to be the beginning of “Red Dead Online,” meaning that it won’t run for a limited time and that developers hope to allow players to keep their progress in the game as they continue to improve and iterate on it. No word on when it will shift from an open beta to the final version."
