Who wants to play a game where you can't do anything without bounty hunters ruining it?

Seriously every time you try to hunt or fish it is ruined every single time. Awesome game mechanics, these developers don't realize they ruin really good games with horrible programming. You can't hunt or fish while you are wanted and literally turning your horse and bumping someone over will get you bounty hunters after you. Please fix this sh*t, I could see around towns but this sh*t happens in the middle of ****ing nowhere

Yes, the criminal detective system is very sensitive. I would love to see a fix from Rockstar in the upcoming updates.

It has literally cost me over 10 legendary animal and fish, some after fighting fish for a good 5 minutes and it is killing the game for me. I don't even want to play it anymore

You can get rid of bounties by paying them off so they don't come and try to kill you when your in areas you shouldn't be. Just pay off the bounty and try to stay away from main cities and killing people. This should allow you to peacefully hunt.

Well im in chapter seven, money is scarce, every mission puts a bounty on you, sh*t every time you fart you get two more so please don't try to defend these retarded game mechanics. They need to be addressed 

There is 6 chapters and 2 epilogues, and I already finished the game. How am I defending the mechanics when I literally just said the criminal system is sensitive? 🤷‍♀️

OP is just not very good at the game it seems. And impatient. I've never had any of these issues. When bounty hunters come after me i can see them on the map. And money is not exact;y hard to come by-there are gold bars all over the map.

Best advice:

Start with the following mind-set: go slow; be good; act like reality.  You are an outlaw on the run, not super-rambo.

Pay off bounties ASAP.  Always keep a reserve cash and items fund for this.

Don't shoot the law - surrender or hide.

Don't go anywhere you're wanted.  Flee, hide, pay bounty off.

In towns, hitch horse and walk slow.  Don't antagonise, walk away from fights.

Increase honor.

I would probably not change play styles until after completing the story and hitting max honor, but at least don't mess about until chapter 3.  Much easier that way.

Agree with this 100%.

This is not GTA or COD. Its Red Dead Redemption 2, and these are the mechanics of the game. They won't change so you'll have to. If you can push forward a bit further money won't be so much of an issue anyway.

I feel your pain and I started over, cause my son wasn't getting that kind of treatment and it worked.  Now I have to actually commit crimes to get bounties.

Sure, if you want to be permanently broke. Seems like they had cell phones and the internet back then as I can't understand how quick they are onto you as soon as you commit a crime. God! Even the police in RL take 24hours minimum to arrive after a burgulary.

The way the criminal system works is when you murder someone, anybody in the area is considered a witness. Once that/those people become a witness, they will flee the crime scene. If you don't kill them in time before they flee the crime scene, the law will be called, and they will come to investigate and take action. However, if you kill the witnesses before they flee the scene, you won't get a bounty or the law to come and investigate. 

So, that being said, if you are smart with how the law system works, you can pretty much get away with anything really. I usually rob and kill people when they are on empty lonely roads, and I make sure any witnesses are executed immediately. Once they are dead, I loot all the bodies and continue on.

What do you mean?

You will only be permanently broke if you continually rack up large bounties, and you'll only be doing that if you keep committing obvious crimes in towns and shooting the law when they come to arrest you.

Exactly. The town is a big no-no for guns. There are just too many witnesses, and you will be dead before you know it. However, if you're in a rural area, and you commit and murder, make sure you kill all the witnesses around you, or the law will be coming.

You're anthropomorphising the game's mechanics.  Plenty of people seem to be able to do it just fine.  Perhaps a new or different approach to hunting is needed?    More finesse, less traipsing around on horseback?  I've never had this problem personally, but I always hitch my horse to a tree when hunting, and the only time I encounter bounty Hunter is when I start a fight intentionally.

 

I can successfully Rob 

Spoiler

The O'Driscoll side business in Valentine

and only get $1.50 bounty.  You know what the easy part is?

Spoiler

Literally Sprint to the sheriff's office next door and surrender.  You make 48.50 every time, if not more.  It's also a great way to earn dual Scholfield Revolvers early on.

You can also hide bodies in Valentine in the pig pen.  The pigs will eat it.  Yes, I've watched it happens.

I want to thank you for reminding me, once again,

How much I HATE Micah.  I can't wait for the chance to turn his head into a canoe.

It's not that I'm not good at the game, I just feel that if I had measly  $20 bounty on my head and I'm out fishing in the middle of nowhere there is no way I should be getting ranked by 15 bounty hunters. That's absurd and as for money the last chapter it gets tight from missions. This is the exact reason I don't post on forums cuz losers come crawling out of the woodwork claiming you're incompetent and inferior all the while missing the whole ****ing point congratulations retards

Your eloquence and grace are an inspiration.  I hope my sons grow up to be as beautifully articulate and intelligent.

I'm 70% done, taking my time. I've even done all the bandit challenges, I've had my bounty up to $550. I not once have had an issue with bounty hunters unless it was intentional. Pay your bounties, sell some wagons or something. Unless you're playing as a total irresponsible bandito mass murderer, I don't see how this is possible. I've heard this and similar complaints only from people who don't fully understand the game mechanics or who don't want to actually put the work in and play the game. This isn't GTA. I think a lot of people expected this to be gta but with horses, and that isn't how these games are. I most certainly hope Rockstar doesn't start changing things just for mass appeal.

I get what you're suggesting but I think it's safe to say that RDR2 already has mass appeal.  I don't see them changing the challenging or immersive components due to those who don't agree with the gameplay.  .....I'm not talking about bugs, glitches, UI enhancements, etc. btw.

I agree with you though.  I've seen a handful of arguments in this forum regarding gameplay "issues" that seem to suggest that they are taking a hamfisted approach to their play. 

I've said it before and I'll say it again....    This game rewards finesse and penalizes heavy-handedness.  ....and it's all the better for it IMO.

OP-it snot people trying to look like a genius, its people providing solutions to your entry level problems very much with tongue in cheek. Also; see the proverb about what happens when you ask stupid questions.....

Why are you so angry? If you are so good at this game why come on a forum and talk about how difficult it is?

Your repeated use of the word "retard" is very much indicative of your own intellectual level, and illicits sympathy rather than annoyance from me. I hope you get the help you require, both in gaming and in your clearly difficult, anger making life.

You don't want changes and yet you haven't experienced where you can do absolutely nothing and get a bounty for it.  I have and it's weird that I started over and there seems to be a completely different game.  My son was playing at the same time he never seemed to get a bounty unless he did something to deserve it.  I have read about how others have ridden into towns and immediately have a bounty.   I to enjoy the game and would hate for major changes that would affect the whole idea of the game, I too have seen some strange things which makes me wonder if there isn't a problem somewhere.  Players shouldn't go in shooting up towns without consequences, but they shouldn't get bounties just for riding into towns either.

I kind of like bounties. I like the challenge of wave after wave trying to kill you because, without the bounties, the game wouldn't be so action-packed, it would literally be do anything you want without having trouble, and to me, that would get boring. I need good gunfights.
