  1. It’s a fun way to mix hunting and story missions in one and earn heaps of xp, cash & gold as well. Also, dunno who you sent the friend request to, but I ain’t got no friend requests
  2. I didn’t mean my comment in an annoyed way. Tone can sometimes be misconstrued when in text mode. Just wanted to let you know.
  3. I'd be happy to join your posse and help with hunting if you're on the xbox. Although I'm mainly grinding Stranger and Online story mission when I'm playing solo or with mates, i still enjoying hunting just as much. Not a high level player (Lvl 70 as of now) but higher numbers of posse members means a better chance of survival.
  4. You could just run down the Story missions to around 25 minutes after activating the mission but before going to the last checkpoint, doing this will generally net you an average of 40-60 dollars, around .35 to .50 gold and 800-1000 xp. While you're waiting for 25 minutes you should hunt small to medium game (not predators) and sell them to the closest butcher to get the most money's worth (usually with a few good hunting trips in that 25 minute time frame you can earn an extra 50-80 dollars in cash). I'm pretty sure this wouldn't be an exploit as you're not glitching the game in anyway and you're not earning thousands of xp and money in a short amount of time, you are still working hard to earn the money and spending time to do it, everything is done in the mission parameters (meaning no out of map glitch or duplication). To me this method of the story missions reminds me of the Pacific Standard Heist in GTA Online which you can do over and over. It wasn't patched for a year due to it not being an exploit technically but was probably patched due to everyone catching on and maybe affecting shark card sales.
  5. As I've said in another post, the following are suggestions i have for any future expansions or when online leaves beta; Selling/buying ranches/homes or cottages. (Farming and managing/trading livestock) Trading of horses. Buying/selling/trading of wagons and coaches. A bounty system to deter griefing (the more you kill players who haven't shot at you or shown any aggression towards you the higher your bounty and it stays with you regardless of lobby refresh, just an idea). Private lobbies which we can invite friends and other players to hunt and just mess around free of worries. Free-aim lobbies. Flesh out the online story mission more maybe with appearances from more side characters from the Van Der Linde gang (e.g. Lenny handing out bank robbery missions, Pearson sending you for herb (other food items) gathering missions or Javier giving you train robbing missions, etc). More ways to interact with the train. An OFFICIAL FIGHT CLUB (this is my dream for online) where clubs can be formed with daily/weekly/monthly leaderboards and events to compete with other clubs, bets can be made, griefers can't ruin it and different locations/setting each time. Ability to sell or trades guns that you don't want anymore (the ability to remove any gun from weapon wheel and store in some sort of gun locker in your camp). PLEASE PLEASE more saved outfit slots (upgrading horse satchels giving ability to store more saved outfits). The ability to be a Hired gun. When activated, players in lobbies are able to see a list of available Hired guns and based on your stats/experience/honour can hire you for protection by an hourly/minute rate if they require only temporary protection without wanting to invite to posse. More horse breeds with more choices of coats to buy and more mane/tail styles. To be able to trade and actually sell horses, not just discard them) PASSIVE MODE and maybe a Passive Hunter mode to be able to only use the bow and other hunting weapons but not able to lock onto players and npc's, only animals.
  6. OP already mentioned he is aware of the mission drop off location ghosting to protect players delivering mission objectives.
  7. I hate the fact that this feature is always prominent in the latest rockstar games (GTA Online you could barrel-roll then aim and shoot with no accuracy loss). Although I would love to see more features come to Online, sooner. Right now it's just a constant grind of either missions, events or some form of hunting to go towards unlocking cosmetics, guns and horses only. If you think about it, there could be so much more that online offers that already exist in the game; Selling/buying ranches/homes or cottages. (Farming and managing/trading livestock) Trading of horses. Buying/selling/trading of wagons and coaches. A bounty system to deter griefing (the more you kill players who haven't shot at you or shown any aggression towards you the higher your bounty and it stays with you regardless of lobby refresh, just an idea). Private lobbies which we can invite friends and other players to hunt and just mess around free of worries. Free-aim lobbies.

To be able to trade and actually sell horses, not just discard them) PASSIVE MODE and maybe a Passive Hunter mode to be able to only use the bow and other hunting weapons but not able to lock onto players and npc's, only animals. It should be noted that some of these features could already be planned for release soon, who knows. Let me know if I've missed any more ideas (which i'm sure there's plenty more).
  8. I'd have to agree with your comment the most. There is a limit to how 'righteous' you are with the 'shoot first' mentality and the potential to ruin an innocent players experience or to (like you said) turn a new player into a griefer is very high. It's the biggest reason I have the "Never without one" perk as i don't shoot any player that rides towards me in free roam just in case they are only looking to make friends but if they try killing me with a head-shot (which most players by now know to always go for head-shots) I have that chance to not die and retaliate.
  9. Try with wordplay to get the same sounding word but with different spelling. Example? my Gamertag is 'ItsTreesAndDen' on Xbox because i was going for 'Its Treason Then' but that was taken so this was the closest sounding to the phrase.
  10. I hate this one so much because of how many times per gaming session this happens to me. At times the online experience gets so bad that i just quit the game and hop on another game for the day.
  11. Luck you, I long for the rare occasions where completing a stranger mission glitches you into a private lobby. Just me and my peaceful Hunting/Grinding missions.
  12. You might be asking about the process of getting to the 'Maintain Gun' feature from the weapon wheel after losing the chance in the cabin mission. You hold the LB to open the weapon wheel, move and hold your right stick towards the weapon of choice (cycle with RT if need be to find your weapon) then press down on the right stick. Your Arthur should then hold the gun to inspect it and options for looking at different angles of the gun, aiming the gun, cleaning the gun and gun stats will show up on the bottom left corner of your screen. just remember that it's best to have gun oil in your inventory at all times, because you can't clean your weapon without it.
  13. I was gonna agree with your post by saying online lacks a lot in terms of game-play offered that differs from story mode right now, but to sell the game instead of waiting till the mode leaves beta and then make your decision is pretty rash and unthought-out (if that's a word) of you. Then if Rockstar didn't keep up with your hopes after beta you could sell or dispose of your copy.
  14. Maybe even the ability to buy Farmsteads, cottages, wagons, trade livestock and better prices for selling owned/looted jewellery etc in the future. Fingers crossed.
  15. Go to your side menu (left on the D-pad on either console) and go to stable then owned horse then pay the $4.00 healing fee).
  16. I have been having alot of issues too, but I've MOSTLY kept my head down due to online still being in beta mode. My daily issues are; Gang hideouts showing near me then disappearing just as quick. Not even exaggerating when i say every second stranger mission is a coin toss between a. mission not starting and the stranger refusing to give other jobs b. mission is stuck in an infinite 'every vendor is disabled and your mission hasn't begun, so twiddle your thumbs' c. reaching the end of a mission only to be disconnect 'due to a rockstar game service error. Being disconnected (dreaded Error: 0x20010006 *shudders*) at random intervals but consistent enough that you are always worried whether starting another mission will be a waste of 5-15 minutes or not. Scrawny nag spawning in story mission online when i have three horses fully healed already (posted this issue here a couple days ago). Animals (mainly the Grizzly bear) from the mission 'on the hunt' given by Trewlany or Hamish cannot be skinned after killing them meaning you have to scrap the mission completely and refresh lobby. When doing the 'Caravan escort' missions, 2/10 times when there is a cut-scene to spawning me in the wagon, me and the wagon are stuck under the map again forcing me to restart entire lobby. Too many clothing items clip through when paired with other clothing item (most prevalent with accessories and coats). NPC wagons and horses disappearing or appearing out of nowhere. This is all just from the top of my head, I'm pretty sure there are many more than this that i have missed, other player's issues and OP's issues. Hopefully these glitches/bugs are all ironed out by the time online leaves beta.
  17. 54 right now, have been grinding stranger missions non-stop (as monotonous as it is) with the Missouri Fox-Trotter (at rank 58) as my goal since i was rank 32. Super excited that I've only got 4 Ranks to go, then it's another grind for the Arabian (at rank 66 & 70) and the last stretch to get the Leather Duster (at rank 96). I really don't know if I'd play the game after I get those things because Online just seems empty in terms of things to do, most events and mission just seem like a constant grind toward rank unlocks. I mean i enjoy hunting a lot but then you can do that in Story mode too. Here's hoping that they release more content for online this year (and maybe, just maybe, single player DLC?).
  18. I am using one Gerden saddle and two knellers. Also i did upgrade the saddlebags to imporved but the glitch was around before that. The time i started to notice this was a day (IRL day) after i played the previous night i hopped on and bought a third horse (originally had two when the glitch didn't exist), then a day or two after that the glitch became apparent.
  19. I have healed my horses (all three) and bought insurance AND checked if they need healing ($4.00) from the stable tab in the side menu. All the above has been taken care of but no fix. Although there is this other bug which constantly shows (at random) either two or one of my stabled horse that i don’t use have completely red depleted health in their stables so when i take them out for the first time or whistle for them in free roam after a while, they need to be fed, this is even though i 100% make sure to stable them well fed with 100% health and stamina cores.
  20. I am looking for an Aussie Posse (or any other region around the same) timezone to help grind stranger missions with as it's a little frustrating grinding alone with the constant lobby posses ganging up to sabotage the missions i do. At least with a few partners you complete mission with higher success rates and efficiency. I'm usually playing around 5pm-10pm weekdays and 4pm-2am weekends.
  21. I Think you have actually mistaken the one Stranger mission that targets a random player in the lobby for Assassination as a bounty. It may seem like it at first but it isn't. If you're a passive player, then the best thing to do is ride fast and hard the opposite direction of the posse or player that has targeted you. Each of those missions has a time limit of roughly 5 minutes, so just keep riding away from them and keep your distance until the time runs out, then you get some bonus xp and cash (IIRC) for surviving the targeting as well. If you really don't prefer that then your only other options are to stand your ground and fight or leave the lobby.
  22. My White/Black American Paint is called Paint.exe, My Black American StandardBred is called Khartoum after the Movie Producer's prize horse in The Godfather movie and my Bloodbay ThoroughBred is called Phar Lap after the Legendary champion Thouroughbred racehorse of Australia in the 1920's to 1930's.
