getting killed 11 times...why?


Recommended Posts

I participated in one of the Rockstar activities, this one where two teams compete in trying to carry a torch against the other side, everyone armed with the pistol/shotgun.

In the event I couldn't make a single kill and got killed 11 times, ugh. Before going back for a repeat, I'm trying to analyze what happened.

First of all, I don't use dead-eye and I noticed in this event there was no red dot showing on targets...so it was free aim.

Free aim without dead-eye is probably what cooked my goose. Tell me, if another player is using dead-eye, doesn't his icon indicate it on the mini-map? I never saw any change in the mini-map icons, just different colors for the two teams.

But shots at me were fatal every time, which would tell me dead-eye headshots did me in as it is very difficult to target anything when riding at full speed with free aim.

It been awhile since I played that mode. So I don't know if the mode turned into free-aim. It use to be normal mode.

If the mode is free -aim than it's like a Race. Players will use Paint it Black. Even though it's free aim, once you activate Paint it Black you just have to move the cross hairs over the player & you get the red marks that lock onto the player. This is a quick way to kill players in free-aim mode. Some players are good at using Paint it Black in free-aim mode & can get headshots easy. Especially while on horseback.

If the mode is normal. A lot of players use the ability card Slippery Bastard in that mode. So players will activate Slippery Bastard so other player cannot locked on to them. Then turn it off & start shooting once they get behind them or right after they shoot.

So I think the players you are up against are using Paint it Black & using it to paint your head with a red x, killing you easily.

Shouldn't I get an indication from their icon that dead-eye is activated?  I've seen a red eye with an x in it from time to time and assumed that it shows the player is using dead-eye.

Nope, I just realized the red-eye with the x in it is the icon for an eyewitness...
