Does the cougar scare you?
« on: March 29, 2012, 10:53:08 PM »
I think the cougar in RDR is awesome on every level. i cant think of any other game animal or monster or man that has made me jump as many times as it has. i actually think twice before going into a territory i know they roam. every time i do im always like on edge wondering if one is behind me. then sometimes ill be in its territory doing a mission or hunting then "Rarrr" and i jump and im like crapppp and my heart starts beating fast. and this not being a horror game well i guess part of it is ive played alot of horror games and none compare to the scaryness of the cougar. they should of had like a see how many waves of cougars you can survive game mode ahhhh anyway anyone else fear the cougar.

I agree 100%. Many a time the cougar has made me jump out of my skin. I avoid Rio Bravo at all costs unless I have to go there for a misson or something lol. I remember reading, I think on the wiki, that theres a saying among the players of RDR that goes something like "You don't find Cougars...Cougars find you.." Which is so, so true.

One thing I find even more scary is after you kill a cougar you know in the back of your head that theres another one nearby because they spawn in 2's. Those are the ones that usually get me because your not sure if its gonna be at the front or back or the sides.

Worst time a cougar made me jump was up Rio Bravo near Pleasant View. I killed one and I saw the other one run over a hill. So I stopped and waiting for it to come back, with my gun ready, then out of nowhere the damn thing jumps out of the shrub next to me. I managed to kill it, but I nearly crapped my pants.

Speaking of animals in the game making you jump. Does anybody have the same problem with the bears in Tall Trees? I find they dont make hardly enough noise, and only growl when they are right behind you. I find I have to listen for a panting sound. So many times Ive been up Tall Trees and I turn around to see a bear like 10ft away charging at me, that makes me jump just about as much as a bloody cougar. I always keep my Buffalo Rifle equipped when I go up Rio Bravo or Tall Trees. I think thats why I like Nuevo Pariso so much. No cougars, no bears. The bobcats dont bother you. And wolves are just too much fun lol all I see are dollar signs running at me when I see a pack of them coming at me.

They were one of the reasons I wouldn't venture out at night when I first started playing SP :)

I've established they're ninjas. There's no other logical explanation.

Also, I love it when cougars spawn like mad up in Tanner's Reach and you get 15 of them running around.

Cougars I've never really had much of a problem with, they to me are more anoying than anything but bears on the other hand are a different story being my main source of income. The only time I ever came close to crapping myself was when I was doing the  hunter challenge to kill a bear with your knife, I was surprised by a grizzly that just appeared to jump ut of knowhere and kill my horse so I equipped my Buffalo rifle was about to take aim when I heard a growl from behind turning I see another bear charging so I scury away only to turn and instead of seeing two bears preparing for an atack I see a line of eight bears running in perfect unison straight at me so I turn and start up the path to Nekoti rock hoping to get a better vantage point to pick them off yet to my surprise 6 bears turned and went completely ignoring me so then I see the other two that were held up by a tree only this time they are running up the path to me, I have no time to fire off a lethal shot, my only option is to jump off the small cliff face and hope to God I make it. As I do this the black bear retreats but the Grizzly continues the charge over the cliff edge. I'm in the finishing process of recovering from the fall and look up to see a huge shape falling closer and closer I swear to God I could see the saliva dripping from it's jaws as it gets closer I can feel my iminent death but instead the bear drops dead at my feet with the fall breaking it's neck. After that I wait it out a few minutes on the ridge to make sure no other bears are within the area and then embark on a sprint back to Manzanita Post.

The cougar scares me. It also irretates me as much as bears, and other over-aggressive and ultra-spawning animals.

When I first started playing the game in SP mode...I hated to go anywhere the cougars were. Nearly every time they made me jump! Now they are just annoying to me. 

I noticed that the cougars/bears are more agressive in SP than in Free Roam...or am I wrong?  In Free Roam, one time I transported up to Cochinay and rode all the way down to Manzita Post...I did not see one cougar or bear! Weird!

Cougars don't scare me, the noises they make annoy me and they in general annoy me when they decide to ninja me and come out of a bush that I could have sworn I checked and there was nothing there. Bears scare me since they make no noise except for a growl when they are really close to you.. I wear a Turtle Beach headset and I can hear bears pant most of the time but sometimes when I'm not paying attention and I hear this enormous bear growl I freak out lol.

Most of the time you'll hear this faint roar not to far away. I've gotten used to that, and now the second I hear it I spin around with my Lemat, and usually beat the cougar.

:p

Cougars don't scare me much. I always feel safer if I'm on my horse though, because at least if they get the horse first, I have a chance to kill them.

I kind of like it when I get one after another attacking me, so I can skin them all and make lots of money

Nah, not cougars, bears, you see one, you run, and you hear it's heavy breath behind you while it's chasing you! Now that's scary!
