Treasure chests and no safe zones


Major Dammidge
 Share

Question

I think treasure chest and I assume I can get enough to upgrade my horse AND a weapin. Pfft. Can you make the treasure worthy of its name? And safe zones means two things to me. I hunted and hunted and hunted and as I pull up the reins to stop in front of the butcher and collect, I took a headshot and lost everything making all my previous gameplay a complete waste of time. The 2nd  attack came from some gang who thought it would be funny or cute to shoot anybody entering the first treasure chest area. I still haven't gotten the first treasure because I keep getting blown away. Another complete waste of considerable time. Are there any improvements forthcoming?

Welcome to red dead online. I suggest you learn to read your map. If you see a player or group of players in an area you want to access. Stop and study their movements, wait till they leave. As for the treasure chests the rewards matches the economy of the game. Something tells me you wont be playing RDO for long.

Dredd1961 regards to reading the map I do watch the movements but figured I'm not the only one stopping at butcher. and you are right I may not be playing it for long unless I hook up with a posse or my two gamer buddies by the game. I confess that could be culture shock as I am 65 years old... Merry Christmas

What platform are you in (can't see all profile details on phone)?  I'm over the half century mark myself and play with another friend my name age and typically others who are in their 30s-40s. 

If you're on PS4 and need some companionship, let me know. I am on the West coast of the US though (not sure where you are at) and I typically play evenings. 

btw, when playing solo, you really need to keep a close eye on other players. I try not to even get close enough to others where they will appear on my minimap. I will typically go to other butchers if I see randoms in a town. I will work on something else if I see players near an objective (e.g. treasure map, etc.).

Of course, when you're with someone, it's easier and safer to take some risk.

Thank you for the offer I am on the Mississippi Coast and Xbox. I will defend myself no problem there. Just this afternoon I was fishing along the River Bank. When you're fishing your little proximity circle disappears. Some clown shot my horse and I had to walk all the way to town to a stable, LOL

Switch servers, ya daft bastard... :P

If you can't, or won't, defend yourself, just avoid combat altogether. Swit hing servers makes that particular bunch of arseholes disappear, and then they won't be a problem.. :)

I'm not daft I can hear  just fine 🙄

at the butcher I was shot in the back of the head defenseless. When I was fishing this afternoon my proximity circle disappeared and some clown shot my horse align me to privilege to walk all the way into town to the stable lol. At least I have made it far enough to earn a pump shotgun & bolt action rifle. Thank you for chiming in...

Oh your Xbox any who you should be able to call up another horse from your stable. Instead of walking. Just hit the menu where is shows you how many players in your lobby scroll down to stable and there you can rustle up another horse.

WILL DO. Both of you please friend me. I'm on the Mississippi Coast which is Central Time so let me know when you play! I'm retired and can be online anytime! I currently have a support ticket with Rockstar because I bought ten bucks worth of fishing worms and cannot buy anymore yet they do not show up in my wheel so all I can catch is perch and bluegill, etc 😡. I'm looking forward to riding with and becoming a Regulator. I don't have a headset and if you guys do I'm fine with that because I think it helps with tactics 🐎🐎🐎 Merry Christmas🎄-- Dwight

I just bought (got it today from Amazon) a pair of Turtle Beach Elite 700's. I had the 600's and those are great but the 700's have Bluetooth for listening to stuff on my phone like music or YT videos. If you don't need that the 600's are great and sound good too.

I am on xbox. Pacific time and am usually on during the days. My gamertag is WSAcanuck. Anyone can feel free to add me. Am a pretty experienced player who started with rdr1. I have a persistent posse called The Widowmakers that I use to do missions, etc as a posse.

I'll  friend you (and ChopSaw55) and look for the widowmakers. My Major Dammidge character is glitch-restricted when fishing--the only bait showing avail is cheese or bread or corn which means $0.60 bluegill Etc definitely not worth it. Despite that i spent the $200 posse fee for "Aces 'n 8s"  My alt.  character is WehTuFat.... And I I'm a work in progress LOL
