  1. Aye - chances are maxed out certain ability cards and some tonics are often enough to take a barrage of shots. Pretty sure there is no relation to level other than maxed out ability cards. It is possible to stand toe to toe with several enemies and be the only one left standing with the right cards. There is a question on ability card load outs close to this thread which goes into far more detail.
  2. Be real interesting now they are finally nerfing the varmint rifle. That alone will make such a difference πŸ‘
  3. Maybe get one of your current members to set up a 2nd posse and then you can mosey on out as a group of up to 14? πŸ˜‰
  4. I am naturally pessimistic but I truly think this is a step in the right direction. It should mean those that want to hunt will be able to do so in peace and I believe this will cut down on the griefing. It's small steps but steps nonetheless and seemingly in the right direction. My only concern is the extra XP and additional challenges for being in a Posse. I appreciate that it maybe what Rβ˜† would like but there are plenty that just want to roam and hunt alone and shouldn't be penalised for wanting to do so. In all, I look forward to the 26th but hope that future updates focus more on individual players also.
  5. I have found the best set up for showdowns to be Slow and Steady Winning Streak Strange Medicine Eye for an Eye It certainly upsets the varmint headshot brigade as you can take several point blank headshots before dying so gives you the time to retaliate. Admittedly I have all 4 at max level and it does feel overpowered but certainly helps with the grind. Everyone should pick to their own playstyle but until they nerf the varmint rifle, I take great satisfaction from upsetting the auto aim jockeys. Needless to say it works well in free aim too but only if you get the chance to activate dead eye before the headshots come πŸ˜‰
  6. Just the once a long time ago but I'm glad they are still dropping them. They are a random find but despite clearing dozens of bandit camps I have only ever looted 1 so the odds are low but do exist. Consider yourself blessed and spend it wisely πŸ˜‰
  7. I have a suspicion that if anything comes in the future with regards to actually buying property, it will be limited to GB as the current camp upgrades are. I hope not as that is one of the aspects I would really look forward to but I certainly wouldn't pay real money for it. I think the cost of the game justifies what we have but any more would require massive changes online to get the player approval.
  8. Best info available at the moment mate is Rβ˜†s own comments which said 'months' They have also suggested their next updates will include daily challenges, possible solutions to griefing and more online content but no concrete dates and no real details other than that. https://www.rockstargames.com/reddeadredemption2/online
  9. Agreed. I have dabbled since Hungry Horace and always kept my hand in between work and family. Recently upset my grandson when I got a S+ rank on the new Resident Evil remake and he can't do it! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ The best gamer is an older gamer πŸ˜‰
  10. To be fair, the only real advantages of reaching level 100+ is experience of taking on multiple foes (dozens and dozens of hours in Showdown PVP), levelling up ability cards which can make or break an issue with griefers and upgrading weaponry to max which certainly helps. The skills are something you can hone over time but it's not unusual to find the skill set and reaction times of an 8 year old griefer much better than your own! I'm no spring chicken myself mate. Turned 50 not that long ago so my reaction times ain't what they used to be but still in good enough order to disappoint anyone trying to rob me πŸ˜‚
  11. Hmm, Level 100+ and bored you say? Prepared to wear underwear externally? hmmm πŸ€”
  12. Don't get me wrong, I fully agree with almost all you have said. However, griefing is obviously an issue they are aware of as they have already announced measures to be implemented. So, knowing players are leaving because of it, and not seemingly in any great shakes to fix it and not having to provide PVE servers, would it not make sense to have an option when you log in (Just one button) to be unable to shoot or be shot by other players? A bit like a permanent spawn protection if you will until you log back out? Maybe I'm seeing things a bit more simple than it would be to implement but if they put as much time into resolving this as they do into creating revenue streams, it would be fixed already?
  13. It is a crying shame that players are leaving because of the actions of just a few and excuse my cynicism but has anyone else noticed that NOTHING has been done by Rβ˜† to try and fix the issue in a timely manner? It would seem they were far more busy introducing a gold bar system to further swell their coffers. Just a thought but did anyone else see 'Westworld'? πŸ˜‰
  14. Agreed. I played solidly until level 100 and now I am bored. Until some new updates are released and changes made (like nerfing the bloody varmint rifle) I won't be putting in anywhere near as much time.
  15. I tend to look at it as the saddle is bought for your use however tack is specific to the horse and therefore only the saddle is transferable. Just a shame it can be yet another expensive lesson. A little more official details from Rβ˜† wouldn't go amiss methinks?
  16. Can't say for sure but my guess is it was a pick up of some kind maybe from a loot chest but only within the round of gun rush and not in free roam.
  17. Maybe I should hold off buying the express explosive pamphlet - be great to find one and save 1000 bux 🀣
  18. Come to think of it, I can't say I've noticed but I will certainly keep an eye out now and keep you posted.
  19. Can I just ask what level you are? It might sound silly but you can purchase anything in the game with gold but everything still has a level requirement. Special Snake Oil can be bought for gold at the very beginning but you will not be able to use it until you reach level 20. I appreciate it can be misleading however look at it this way, it's gold you won't have to spend at level 20 so you can use it for something else. I learnt the same way but if was far more of an expensive lesson. Good luck πŸ‘
  20. It cost 1000 bux for the explosive express crafting pamphlet and then you need 1 portion of animal fat for each cartridge so yeah, they are pretty expensive and time consuming gathering all the fat. However, as mentioned earlier, if used sparingly and only in self defence, they can liven up an otherwise tedious grind or at least until something new becomes available in game.
  21. Love it - been resorting to incendiary buckshot for now - seems to invoke a strange sense of comfort watching the small ball of fire break-dancing πŸ˜‰
  22. I know I'd like to see some changes made to the avoiding/diving. Nothing more frustrating than players diving all over the place like an epileptic dolphin half a dozen times then popping off a headshot before doing it all over again! Maybe it should expend half the stamina bar each dive and then half the accuracy for a short time which would be a little more realistic?
  23. Should make level 90 later today so when I buy the relevant pamphlets I will post a list if nobody else does πŸ˜‰
