I officialy hate RDR2 now


Recommended Posts

Yes, from now on I officialy hate RDR2.

My aim is to finish the game at 100% and collect every item, weapon en clothing.
I went to the trapper and listed all garments, hats, vests, coats, gloves, chaps, boots and saddlessaddles. Also the same for the fence: every talismas and trinket.
Then I looked at the camp upgrades.
Listed how many pelts of which animal I needed to craft everything. And it's a lot. I've put everything in an Excelsheet.
And I started to l look for all the animals I need to have their 3 start pelt. It's a long way to go and it's not easy.
And since I'm only at level 2 at this point I don't have access to the south of West Elizabeth and New Austin. So a few animals have to way until later.

But ok, only 2 black bear plets, 2 bear pelts and 1 panther pelt to go, except for 7 cougar pelts and 1 moose pelt and then I can concentrate on something else.
I finaly found 1 location where I'm every day a bear spawns, north-west of Wallace Station. It's only waiting for the 3 star bear.
A cougar spawn location is found a little bit north of Owanjila Lake, where the road turns away from the river.
A panther can be found at the south of Bolger Glade, all the way down and at the left side of the road.
A black bear location I'm still searching for a reliable spawn location.

But before I got at this point, my god what was it difficult. The game scares the hell outta me! The game can read my mind!!!!
When traveling across the country, trying to hunt for example boars (and not finding them) I saw for example a lot of rabbits. But since I was finding any boars I thought it would be better to hunt rabbits, since they were all over the place.
But suddenly, no rabbits where to be found!!! And then I saw squirrels. So let's go hunt some squirrels... And suddenly no squirrels anymore.... What????

Then. Don't talk me about a 3 star moose... Yeah yeah, spawn location at Cairn Lake and north of Brandywine Drop, where the legendary moose can be found... I know it all. I also can google for it, read all these posts from ather people looking for it, giving ideas and hints. And on youtube it seems so easy.... Drop some herbivore bait at Cairn Lake, go a bit further, turn around and there he is: a 3 star bull moose. Aim, shoot and bang you have a perfect pelt.
I've put so much bait that it is not called bait anymore... I was feeding the animals. All kind of animals came to the bait. Deers, bucks, horses, pronghorns, foxes. Just name it. But never the animal I needed.

One moment, in the Grizzlies East, all the way to the north: suddenly a 3 star bull moose. it sees me and runs away. So I follow from a little distance and it dissapears behind a small hill. I get of the horse to sneek on him and I can see his trace. I look behind the hill and no moose nor trace can be found. Gone... What????

Last time, got to Cairn Lake. I never ever saw one here and thought the spawn location was a mystery. I leave the horse a bit furtherbecause it making a lot of noise and I didn't wanted it to scare the moose (not that I was hoping to see one, but you could never know). I sneek over the snow bank and there it was!!! In the middle of the lake... A 3 start bull moose came out of the ice... So I aim carefully. Then suddenly, it runs away to the right and dissapears. I immediately start running and call my horse. But the moose was gone, without leaving a trace...
Rockstar, you are dissapointing me.... Really...

In the meanwhile it didn't go better. I lost the horse with a few 3 star pelts on it becaus it pelt from a railroad bridge, into the water. To deep to recover something or the horse...
Got ambushed a few times, died and lost 3 start pelts.
And very recently: I went to the trapper in New hanover to sell my 3 star Florida panther pelt. I went up north knowing in Roanoke Vally, close to Brandywine Drop there is a black bear (and a cougar). I found him, but only 1 star. So I let it live. And why not look again for a moose at the location where the legendary moose was.
And oh my god (!!!), there is was!!! A 3 star moose!!!! I carefully approach, aim and shoot it clean dead. Yeah!!!!! The last moose pelt I needed. I skin it and put it on my horse. I also shoot a 3 star bull elk but since I had only one horse I carried the elk pelt on my back and went on foot the the trapper, taking the shortest route.
I look at the map, put a marker and go for it. The I put the marker a bit further and went also for it. The I see a cross on the map, knowing this is a corpse. Since I had to pass there I see a body hanging from a tree and I shoot the rope. Suddenly a bunch of people popped up (7 or 8 ) and start to hunt me. I can shoot one, try to hide behind a tree so I wanted to shhot the rest. But a few followed me and stapped me.... Dead... lost my hard earned 3 star moose pelt. It took me literally 3 weeks in real time before getting the last moose pelt I needed. And I lost it in a few minutes....

I pulled out the cable of the PS4, I was really mad!!! The disc will go in the bow, the box in the closet for a long time. I have had it with RDR2!!!
Time for something else.... i'll try again in a few months.
I know officialy hate RDR2!

Please let me know if you had any of these problems of the same kind also, or share youre thought. What did you encounter? Let me know. Just to know I'm not the only one.

I manually save after getting hard to get pelts or completing other difficult things. Save yourself the aggravation.



This. Manually save before(!) or after any important or dangerous "missions"
