Question

Hi.  What's everyones thoughts on using Dead Eye in online mode?  I don't bother on the whole, although I try to use it against NPC's as I think you get exp for it.  But doe sit work against PvP?  As it can't slow time I'm not sure of what it does?  Hopefully, you all can enlighten me!

You definitely need to be using it, it does feel underwhelming compared to the single player's version of it, but there types of ability cards that augment your dead eye.

For example one ability allows your friends to deal more damage while your dead eye is active, some allow you to absorb a headshot  without dying - so, it is very useful but not in quite the same way as single player. I found that the 'paint it black' ability in online is good for long range fire fights where your lock doesnt reach your target, if you pop dead eye you can 'tag' your enemy and hit them from greater ranges - id say if you're not using dead eye, your missing out

Exactly as Holyskin said above. Youd be missing out by not using it. If found that for it to be at all effective for shooting you really do need to get the "Paint it Black" ability card. (free at the start of game during a mission). And as he said above. You can really ensure those long distance headshots. I normally will activate during a shootout against a guy in cover and as long as the dot is anywhere in the path of his head as he pops out it will mark him.... then just pull the trigger. I especially like marking 6 or more tagets in the head and letting go a barrage of death with my dual wielded cattlemen.

Thanks guys, two top answers.  I'll try it out later, I've got the "Paint it black" card, just never use it.

Honestly without "paint it black" set as active I cant even mark X's on targets so other than the buffs it can provide (later levels) I don't see much reason to use it. Tried a new loadout very recently to see how it would work and as far as offense goes and hated it. Untill I have the funds to upgrade some of these ability cards, ill be sticking with paint it black for sure.

update, ive just been playing with some card set ups.

slippery bastard - enemies cant lock on to you (you also cant lock onto them

of single purpose - take less damage with melee weapon equipped

slow and steady - when dead eye is active you take less damage and head shots cant kill

with this set up - just for fun, if i see an enemy i can charge at them, pop deadeye and melee them to death and they cant kill me, they mostly miss because they cant lock on and when they do im tanking damage with the slow and steady ability card, impossible to kill like that for a few seconds while dead eye is active. its not a sustainable way to play but its fun as hell, i was melee wiping a 4 man posse who tried to grief me fishing last night :D  they got bored and called me a hacker
