Hi all,

Last weekend we began again with playing RDR2 and we kinda forgot how much fun we had. 
And now with the new role we really had a lot of fun.

The main and side missions for the moonshiner role are so amazingly fun. We already have a favourite one also¬†ūüėĄ¬†( The bar fights ).¬†

Now to come to the point what do you guys propose to upgrade first for the moonshiner role and how do you think this role can be improved for the future?

I love the moonshiner role, too (although sadly it is wildly glitchy on Xbox for me - have hope that they're working on it behind the scenes).  One thing I thought is that they could have regular customers, we could deliver to some of the established saloons in the existing towns.  We already sometimes help take a drunk patron home.  There could be scope for us to have wider interaction with the saloon owners.

Also maybe the revenue agents who man the checkpoints could perhaps form separate posses, hunt down known bootleggers.  I have made a fortune evading their taxes - it would be kind of fun if occasionally I could be minding my own business elsewhere, doing something unrelated, and suddenly the revenue agents turn up with a warrant for my arrest.


Third angle - how about mixing player bounties in with my idea, above.  If some of us make a lot of coin from moonshining, let the revenue agents place a bounty on us and that could trigger not only revenue agent bounty hunters but also player bounties?  

So there you go, there are my three.  Glad you're back to the game.

That sound like 3 interesting features :).

Hopefully they fix the glitch fast indeed.
I really like the side quest of the moonshiner and the moonshiner in general you really have the feeling that you're doing something to grow a business which is not the case with the hunter for example.

Yes completely agree.  Perhaps Cripps should be able to craft stuff from pelts we gather.  Or even could we raid one another's camps and steal supplies?  Both of those might make it more immersive.

In terms of the moonshining, perhaps we could steal materials from one another, or sabotage one another's stills or supply runs.  With lots of us in a crowded market it makes sense that some of us take the odd pop at one another.  Agree with you though, love the moonshiner role.

I concentrated on updating the stills as soon as I was able, as they allow you to make stronger moonshine and earn more money. Only downside is the stronger the moonshine, the longer it takes to make, but one of the higher levels rewards you with an item that slightly decreases the time (a pamphlet, I believe).

I play solo, so upgrading the bar and band areas wasn't a priority, but they are necessary if you're after the gold from daily challenges, and I imagine a lot of fun if you play with friends.

Lastly, the Norfolk Roadster is one of the better horses available, in my opinion.

Thanks for the tip :)

Yes, the top Norfolk Roadster ($950 IIRC, although I bought mine with one of the endless discount coupons they're offering) is my current favourite horse.  Fully bonded it's amazing.  Looks nice, too.

Completely agree with you on daily challenges - the bar is just gold waiting to be collected when it comes to daily challenges. It's all I use mine for, but I'm often to be found in there, earning gold by dancing alone or playing piano or whatever.  It's a funny old life.
