I think gun rush is completely unrelated to any bug / current content fixes.  It's not as simple as saying " they did this instead of that", it was clearly already on the way independent of other things.

I wish they would have released it not in beta form, but whatcha gonna do?  Multiplayer games in general and free roam games in particular have soooo many variables, that when you miss the mark you can really really miss the mark.  Compounding the problem is Rockstars well-established pattern of being tight-lipped.  I don't think that serves them as well as it used to.  So much good will could be gained by some transparency.

Spot on floof. If the plan is to, say, add private sessions in 1 month, 6 months, 2 years, never... tell us. If they are working on fixes for spawn points gives us a general time frame for implementation. Or if the game is what it is and all they are going to do is just add content then come clean and gives us all a heads up. This isn't Fallout 76 (from what I hear), but this is quickly heading in a similar direction. Honesty and transparency would go a long long way.

I haven't turned on RDO in over a month. Single player still holds my interest, but RDO is dead for me.

And it might be time for some real talk. Take a look at this forum. Are there any new forum members? Has activity picked up like many of us had expected (hoped)? A few of us came back, but still so many former regulars just aren't motivated to post anymore. RDO has been, to this point, a monumental failure. I thought GTAV PvP was poor. I couldn't believe how bad it was. RDR was soo good I just assumed devs would use that as their starting point. But when they went in a completely different direction it blew my mind. GTAV's saving grace is that online had a ton of other things to do by yourself or with your crew. Max Payne PvP felt better than GTAV, but for me it was still poor. New players had NO SHOT against people who had ample time to level up and acquire high powered load outs. And now RDO. The entire experience, at best, is "blah." But often very frustrating and very unrewarding. Using the term "Beta" is a massive cop-out. At this point very little can be done to change the feel of the game. What we have is essentially what we will be getting. Adding content won't save this thing. It needs an overhaul. A complete overhaul.

Rockstar need to fire ANYONE/EVERYONE connected to the decision making portion of RDO. IMO, it's that bad.

Soooo, RDR3 coming to an XboxTWO in 2026? Can't wait......

I’m sorry to hear a fan of the series has become this disenchanted with RDO, you are far from the only player to ‘hang up their spurs’  but at the risk of sounding like a foolish optimist all is not lost, we have be gathering a fairly large group of people in our party chats, Facebook messenger, WhatsApp , and even Instagram, yes the forum is very quiet but there is a fairly thriving community that seem to be using other methods of communication , we have been trying to funnel them to this forum with very limited success.
Not to sound contrary Jester I have become more accustomed to RDR2, I agree that the foundation for a great experience was in R*’s lap , they had an excellent gameplay system to export to their new engine, but opted for a total overhaul and in fact seemed to base the gameplay on GTAV (which I was never a big fan of).
My point being, it’s not perfect, yet I am still personally finding enjoyment, mainly it has to be said because of the group of regular players I see, if I was a lone wolf I would forget about this game so fast

I use slow and steady , the head shot protection is handy , but I’ve been rolling with “quite an inspiration” for team games (when DE is active your team mates heal - TBH In the land of the headshot this is pretty ineffective)


I am still experimenting with cards , I leveled the short game, winning streak and I’m working on necessity breeds (closer to death you deal more damage)

I had eye for an eye but struggled to see the benefit (Kills restore DE) also  strange medication ( you heal when you deal damage) is dubious because if I get killed it is by HS rather than body shots so healing cards are pretty underwhelming IMO.

I have friend in work who knows a R* employee, I sent him through some feedback , recently they asked for my address and hooked me up with some sweet merchandise.

American Government shut down.

if some of you need to borrow a few quid...… until your paycheck arrives.

they are mere amatuers compared to the my country:

"Northern Ireland has now been without a government for two years.

The devolved executive and assembly which have powers over the region collapsed in January 2017 owing to ongoing disagreements between the DUP and Sinn Féin, and all attempts to restore power-sharing have since failed.

The region currently holds the world record for the longest period without a sitting government, which it passed after 589 days.

Here, we explain how the political impasse came to be and what a future deal could look like.

How and why did the Northern Ireland Executive collapse?

The Northern Ireland Executive collapsed on 9 January 2017 with the resignation of Martin McGuinness as Deputy First Minister.

Due to the unique nature of history and circumstances in Northern Ireland, both unionists and nationalists must join together in a power sharing executive in order to lead the assembly. Since 2007, the DUP have been the largest unionist party and Sinn Féin have been the largest nationalist party.

With the larger mandate, the DUP have always been given the post of First Minister, while Sinn Féin have been given Deputy First Minister, but the two roles are effectively a joint office, with equal power, and can only exist with the full support of the other."

I had some great games last night and the usual laughs and mayhem with  PapaB, Papa J, Floof, Inhuman Trifixia, HvT, Fisherman, Billyboi, Lemon, UTB, (sorry if I left anyone out) I am not a fan of gun rush, but I’ll give it a go, I’m actually looking forward to some horse racing this weekend just to change things up. I’m also on a mission to get quite an inspiration to level three, I want to see how worthwhile it is in PvP , also I need to restock my supply of ‘splody ammo as I want to blow some folks up, I spent the gold now to make some people explode.

I don't see slow and steady as a problem.
I run out of dead eye pretty quick, even when using eye for an eye and unblinking eye.

Yeah, SnS hasn't caused much frustration for me, it adds another tactical element that players need to be aware of, example, you encounter a player, they have slow and steady, you have to figure out how to counter, try and get the drop on them? slug it out if you have slow and steady yourself? close the distance and get into shotgun range? dynamite them? dive and or take cover waiting for their dead eye to drain?

The springfield is no joke. Fuck yall's varmint. Im trying to figure out how i can fire a shot against u varmint noobs (craigy, floof, fish, utb, lemon, casteyn, violentgent, and anyone else; miss my shot and do my sexy spinning,  dancing, dodging, diving, ballerina moves, reload, and still kill yall 😂🤗

But for real, this springfield is no joke, highly recommended. But i only recommend it to those who have sexy swag skills because u only get one shot then reload. Not sure if u varmint noobs can handle that 😂🤣


I might try the bow and arrow.

I have given the springfield a go too.  I like it, sounds better than the bolt action, but I really need a DLC for a western type of rocket launcher! That would mess you and the varmint users up!

Then again I will probably just blow myself up with it.

What setting do you guys have your aim sensitivities on? All the way or 3/4?  I have started to experiment with those settings.

And can someone tell me if the camera high, low, or off setting does anything in PVP?

Cheers and thanks for you input always appreciated  :)

Also can someone tell me how to disable the RB button, is it possible? 
I keep hitting it by mistake and going for the nearest or longest cover getting me killed in that stupid animation thingy.  (whip)  :-[

I reccomend the aim sensitivity is set low, the reason being it's all about the head shot, it may seem counter intuitive but you don't want to set the aim sensitivity high as it will over shoot the head when you do the flick upward motion.

As for disabling RB , perhaps a Scuff or Elite type controller would help, if yoiu can map RB to something else?

Hello))
 
I know that your forum is not about that,

At once I will tell - I want to get acquainted with the worthy man;)

some louts and anxious.
 
I love... intimate conversations, but not with every counter ;)
I will write my skype, unsubscribed in a personal, in response to your photos!

Grab the bag tall trees and make it count tall trees coming soon

wish this was real.  Love grabbing bags.




....Also there's new game modes?

Actually a mode were you are able to turn the Tomahawk for a bit of wood chopping action would be welcome.

Does anybody have some tips on the following:

1. Best way to play Name your Weapon. I run around like an idiot with the Tomahawk and get hammered.
2. How to "find/run into/locate" more players in game. I spend a vast majority of games just running around the map, but I have trouble finding players. As an example in a Name Your Weapon game this past weekend Kazzy went something like 18-9 (so 27 player interactions) and I went 4-7 (11 player interactions). I had the Tomohawk, but still I was always on the move. And some dude went 32-5. How the hell is he/she finding that many players in such a short game?
3. Does anybody have concrete knowledge of how the mini map works in PvP games? I find myself instinctively looking at it throughout and generally (short of the most wanted game) by the time I see anything on the map it's behind me and too late. Most times I get shot by somebody and they never appear on the mini map so I have no idea where it even came from.

(I too am amazed at the scores some folks can achieve in name your weapon), For what it's worth here's my take:


1.) Save the tomahawk for players that are either unaware of your approach, engaged in heir own duel, or pennies from heaven AFK. The double barrel should be your default, close the distance and don't forget hip fire can save your bacon in a tight spot.
2.) I have this issue as well, I tend to gravitate toward weapon pick up spawn areas, keep an eye for the "X" icon for recent kills, there should hopefully be an enemy near by, as Brah said in another thread set your mini map / radar to the expanded version as a default so you don't have to constantly expand it. If you are feeling particular sneaky you can fire your weapon, in the air or wherever to draw attention to yourself and bring the enemy to you.
3.) I have a feeling the mini map works of off a line of sight set up, and vicinity to gun shots  again I'm not entirely sure and I'm happy to be corrected, ideas peeps?

There’s a new Northern Ireland hero coming. He can cut off his own hand and throw it on the point to contest.

Post your tips and tricks to help each other out, or any wandering googlers or potential new members to use.

I put together this quick video of the top 4 tips I think are the most useful:

Special props to TWO floof for teaching me some of this stuff.  Quick learner that fella

Nice video, kudos, it isn't the most intutitive game to play online but if we keep updating our knowledge base we will be beastly in no time.

Thanks again.
