What if your hat gets shot off?

This is a bit of a random question, but say you opt to wear a hat on your character online and it gets shot off or you lose it in water or something...

Will it just be lost? Will you have to actually pick it back up and put it on? Maybe it is gone until you respawn? 

I've been having random thoughts like this all day and I realize it is a bit LQ but it can be something fun to discuss for some people lol

Depends if this particular feature that has been confirmed for Singleplayer will crossover into Red Dead Online, I'm personally hoping it does as it would definitely make you count your lucky stars anytime another player shoots your hat off during a gunfight.

It would also just be a fun way to mess with people.

I want this to be a thing online for sure. It is just something you see in old western shows, movies, and cartoons. It adds a bit of "thank my lucky stars that weren't my head!" and "Where did my hate go!? LOL" to it. Like you get a mix of a cool feature with a hint of comedy, depending on how you play.

I honestly believe that the mention of losing the hat was simply a reference to a scripted event in the campaign and likely not a new mechanic beyond that such as losing your horse as those guys suggested in the video.   You are then given the option to go retrieve it (likely putting yourself at risk) or moving on having to source another hat.

I read some where if it happens you have go get your hat or you can lose it.   To replace it you have to go buy a new one.  If true, I am sure I see lots of characters running around without hats.

It the main story this is fine but online, you are about spot on here. No one is going to want to deal with it. Who is going to want to buy a new hat every time someone shoots it off if they can't get it before being gunned down or it "blows" away or something?

Yes, but did you get the reference??

(HINT: Google "Safety Dance")  ????

Of course I did.  ......but I didn't want to give it away.  ;)

Men WIthout Hats  ...."You can dance if you want to...."

I graduated highschool in the mid eighties so yeah, I know the references well.  :)

Oh good! I graduated in the mid-nineties, so I was afraid I might be the only Gen-X'er here. High five, brother! ????

If this is the case, I REALLY hope it takes a lot to knock that friggin' hat off. Like, it better not fly off just by running fast on a horse. Otherwise, all my in-game budget is going to go toward buying #&@%ing hats.

Good god, if this is something that happens and we have to buy a new hat everytime it gets lost... I will just skin a fox and wear the pelt stapled to my ears. No way I would keep buying new hats. 

If they have it where you can easily earn loads of money then it won't be much of an issue. I think it is best that if you die, you respawn with it. If you don't die and you can't find it, then you have the option of buying a new one or running in front of a train lol

If my hat gets shot off, I would go running after it like a moron the first 100 times and likely get killed by a gang of 13 year olds. lol I don't think they will make it a very tedious thing in the game like some mentioned above. It will likely be something that respawns.
