  1. lumper said it: "The best advice I can give after playing the game 3 times. In Chapter 2, Get a scope on whatever rifle you have get the Buck Antler trinket early on Get your satchel upgraded as fast as you can, you can do this in chapter 2" --------------------- The absolutely most important key to play this game is to upgrade your satchel into "legend of the east" witch gives you a storagecapacity of max 99 of each item. An absolute must. You are nothing but a noob without this satchel. To get this done you will need to 1) go hunting with Hosea, he will give you the legendary animal map. Kill the legendary buck north of Owanija dam to get the pelt-thrinkle from the fence. 2) Do the first mission for Mr Strauss to get the camps legder activated. Buy leather-tools for Mr first, go all-inn for the satchel! (later; get fast-travel. A game-opener!) Go to Valentine early and look for a hanging. The sheriff (not his deputy) will wear a bolt-action rifle*. Headshoot him on his way back and snap the rifle, it`s worth it. You can get a free Lancaster repetear by "robbing" the gunshop in Rhodes and a semi-automatic shotgun from an old lady up north in Big Walley. You will need a varmit-rifle with a scop for hunting small animals. Good horses can be found, but if you allready have the money buy the Dutch Warmblood for $450,- A bit stiff price but this horse is solid, acting like a war-horse meaning it will not be scared easily, fast enough & good stamina. Money; small cabin behind Shady Belle, lockbox gives $70,- and fills up every "day" + cabin near Moonstone Pond gives $50,- (large jevel bag) * you can also pick up one of these in the mission were you go near Blackwater to free Sean. Google it! My fav gun in the game, and notice how it improves after a few hundred shots. A maxed bolt-action with a semi-shotgun for backup in close-range combat is a strong combimation. Allways save the game before any challenge. Allways. Your horse might be killed, pelts might dissapear..
  2. If you see a guy standing behind his horse, troubling with it`s rear foot`s shoe then get your lasso ready. The horse will kill him and be free to pick up. Fast but a bit nervous horse
  3. " Now the collector. Its the most profitable and xp wise role in the game.." It was, it is not as it usede to be. Now items spawns "random" meaning we`ll never know where to find what or when. Like I did the other day. Noticed I had 9 of 15 coins so I decided to find the missing ones by using jeanropke`s map. But instead of just pinpointing the missing items I had to search the whole map and hope. Two hours and 15 coins later I found myself now hawing 10 out of 14. Wow. That kind of kills the collector-role https://jeanropke.github.io/RDR2CollectorsMap/ what is wrong with this forgotten forum? post "hidden"?
  4. Too bad this, RDR1 had both a working railway and stagecoaches, this gives a lot moore realism than these supernatural travels RDR2 offers
  5. This. Manually save before(!) or after any important or dangerous "missions"
  6. I`ve used the Krag-Joergensen Bolt action from the very start and I`ve noticed the same. Even a cheap repeter has a better range in auto-aim than the bolt-action has now. But still, it bites. Was attacked by 3-4 newcommers in Armadillo this evening, the posse-leader was able to kill me first. Fighting from the horseback, allways moving I picked them quite easy 2-3 times before they paroled. Will check out my Springfields range and compare, not a bad gun that rifle
  7. Looks to me like you can rename for free, it is an option but I have not tryed
  8. There is a vintage bottle in this boat and it`s no problem to collect it. So far so good, but the game doesn`t notice that you have collected it so it keeps telling you it is still there. Same with the bottle at Ratskeller Fork btw, just collect and ignore
  9. Level 157, 166 gold & 23k in cash. Not much to do really. I only fill up my tradewagon to offer newcommers some easy money now and then, knowing how hard it is to come by some money on low levels
  10. Happened to MeToo yesterday but they were back today. Wonder if they have something going on 🤨
  11. Never happened to me yet. What platform are you on? Oh puter. Are you shure you`re using an updated map? https://jeanropke.github.io/RDR2CollectorsMap/
  12. Never uses dead-eye but you have to pick one so I have choosen point black as no1. Fool me once, Necessity Breeds and Winning Streak together makes me a hard man to kill since they all increases my firepower while enemys firepower gets reduced
  13. You can have one account for each email-adress you can come up with. I felt that the extra bonuses kind of ruined the last RDR for me so I decided like you to play RDR2 witout any bonuses or extras. you`ll just need a good rifle and a good horse. If you do the collector stuff first you`ll earn some money and rank up quicly so you can start using express-ammo and do the bounty-jobs
  14. Entered Strawberry two days ago when I became aware of this kyle-something guy shooting & throwing explosives at some other players. Poored myself a tonic level 3 and decided to give him what he asked for. Shot him but when he respawned he started sniping at me from the hillside abow. Shot him two times moore, now by using explosive bullets in my bolt action rifle. But some seconds later he came back, now right in front of me and well aware that not I or noone else could hurt him. It was swimply impossible to fire a bullet his way, must have been some cheat he used. Well he couldn`t kill me either since I drank level 3 shots and because of my ability-setup, and when I started throwing firebottles at him he decided to clear the scene. He was attacked and killed by ingame-police btw, they could fire at him. During this shootout I noticed a horse laying down on the road so I revived it. Or her. Then after the fight was over and I wistled for my brown turkoman, this golden missouri foxtrotter appeared and acted like she was mine. She was named Miss Ouri btw, a good name. Was expecting her do dissapear and to get my turk back at the next reload, but Miss Ouri has followed me since then. The turk can be found in the stable so it looks like I`ve earned me a good horse and first class saddle for cleaning up in Strawberry😎
  15. Again, the smart thing here is to focus on the collector first until you`ve reached at least 33 or higher level. Then you will have some money, upgraded ability cards and you will have accesss to express ammo. This will make bounty-hunting a bit easier..
  16. thanks, what`s your gt? - just changed mine btw, named after an old legendary norwegian bear-killer. Me I`m moore a beer-killer 😬
  17. Hello XvitariX, I`m old and grumpy like you, mybe we`ll run into eachother. Gmt+1 here
  18. Collector, no doubt. It`s the best & easiest way to make progress & earn money
  19. Has been like this for weeks now, it totally ruins the allready ruined trader-role. Btw, met a new version today; went back to the camp after a wery short hunt nearby, the camp was there but the was no mark on the map and no Cripps. Had to leave the carcasses on the ground and tryed a moonshine-mission but the game froze (again) and I lost my moonshine. Happens 50% of the time. So I`m doing some collecting, wondering if R* will ever fix this game
  20. Met you in Valentine tonight while you were terrorizing the city along with four of your friends
  21. As a result of this I will no longer run a posse
  22. Yup, much like this and then the upper part of Roanoke Valley, west of the river. The western corner of Little Creek River, right beneath the farm is an interesting place to be. Was enough animals to do hunting up here yesterday btw. Upper part of Tall Threes is a good place to hunt and close to my moonshine-cabin.
