Yea bro Lenny and Bill followed me on horse back. But not only that, they shot who I shot at (or whoever shot at me) and they would dismount their horses and mount them again whenever I did. So they would follow me on foot and by horseback

Wow I’m going to try this asap

I think I saw a pop up about this, about activities with other members or something. It was in Chapter 2..I don't really remember, I was caught doing so many other things that I forgot about that.

It's hard af for me to attract enemies. Either in slow ass wagons or run on foot. Although it is late at night here. I'll try tommorrow

Probably just companion activities. Not free roam at all.

Haven't read all the threads. Jumped ahead tbh...

How did it work I'm SA? (as someone said, I can't even remember!) 

 

Would it not mean whoever you took with you would be invincible? 

As if they got killed, the story line/cut scenes is gone obviously and that's not happening. 

 

And they couldn't have implemented the L2 command at every turn in a fight at this scale. 

 

So therefore you could technically wait til everyone is killed by your  gang member and exploit it all?? I dunno. Just brainstorming lol.

Wow bro, you won’t believe how angry this has made me. Wtf. I specifically remember before the game was released a selling point was that “gang members could loot dead bodies before you if they reached them first”. The moment I played and realized this was false, I should’ve known!

They do loot...just not that often.  I saw it happen twice in my game.  Still sucks you can't have a member follow you in free roam though.

They were able to do it in GTA V.  If your friend was hurt, they'd just wake up at a hospital and you'd have to pay the bill.  

 

In rdr2, they could have wrote you a letter or something lol

i hope this is just a feature waiting to be activated in a patch, because rockstar never really adds new features in single player after launch in any of their games

I just feel like the silliest aspect of this feature not being included is how much emphasis they have put on interacting with your fellow gang members, to rule point where pretty much the entire story is based around it, as well as a lot of the core mechanics. Almost everything you do relates to you interacting with them and the relationships you develop in doing so. 

 

So for them to omit such a basic feature, one that was included in almost all of their previous open world games...well it's just bizarre. It's not even something I wondered about before the game launched. It seemed a given that the game would allow it. 

 

I guess the jokes on me?

I’ve been trying and trying but it’s to difficult to bring enemies into the new gang camp location.

UPDATE: I was recently leaving the camp and got ambushed by some enemies. There were maybe 6 red dots on the map. I killed one and ran the opposite direction hoping they’d follow me to the gang camp. They did, and sure enough all my gangmemebers started turning to white dots on my map and started following me. I guess I wandered away from the camp before killing all of the enemies or something because right after the game was restarted and I respawned as if I just died. I also tried it again with Lawmen but the moment law gets near your camp it’s also automatically game over.

Every single gang member? I swear so much hassle over a simple feature that should have been in the game. Hope rockstar do something about this. The games a 9/9.5 out of 10 for me, this feature will bring it up to 10/10 as this is infinite replay fun. It wouldn't be so hard to do. Either make them invincible and only we the player can die or do it like GTA v where they send you a message or something lol

I doubt we’ll see this in the game. Online is where they focus now 99%

 

Would have been cool of you could have upgraded your allies and brought them along, but I think this was only intended for missions.

That would completely suck if that was the case

Also could you all also report this issue to rockstar?

Yes this is extremely important. If you feel strongly about this feature being excluded from the game then you should really contact rockstar support. Remember the game is still brand new, there hasn’t even been any patches. If we are loud enough our voices may cause this game to have infinite replay potential by the first patch or update.

 

you don’t even have to be well written. Just let rockstar know this feature of having gang members following you around during free roam is missing from the game. 

 

This game is truly beautiful and dynamic. Gunplay is fun and everything but this little missing feature makes it feel incomplete and rushed.. 8 years? It took to create this game, I wouldn’t be surprised if this key feature was literally just accidentally forgotten about

Yeah I'm really annoyed about this. I had so many plans on hanging out with various gang members. I just wish there was like an update or something that could add this in. The companion activities kind of makes up for it but not really at the same time.

Good luck wishing for that, the only updates will be to bring unicorns and gold saddles to Red Dead Online.

One can dream right? If not the inevitable PC version may have to do instead

Dang, really wish this feature was in game for release. Since the Gamespot feature (https://www.gamespot.com/gallery/red-dead-redemption-2s-new-features-gun-durability/2900-2267/) that talked about this literally came out a few days before release, I'm really hoping that they weren't able to polish the feature in time for release, and might patch it in along with Online.

 

Otherwise I hope that enough of the code remains that  modders can implement it themselves.

 

Right now the gang feels too much like a bunch of NPCs who do nothing once you finish their quests- I want to bring Lenny and John along with me to rob some trains!

modders will be able to do it on pc for sure but i think rockstar may add something, they are going to be updating this game for the next few or more years... when it comes to modding communtiy "bodyguard" mods are very popular, i know for a fact rockstar looks at popular mods and uses them for ideas. When GTA V came out, i saw tons of features implemented that were mods for IV. Rockstar pays attention.

 

For IV I wrote a mod that lets you join any gang you want and start wars with other gangs so you could be rolling around witha group of bodyguards that were part of player group plus i would make even more follow you that werent group members and have them in multiple cars so you could actually roll around with 10-15 gang members and i would spawn numerous enemies and cops would get involved, it was war, my favorite mod i ever wrote

Really hope that Rockstar continues to patch the game, though Rockstar of late has a record of not really touching the Single Player part of the game after release.

 

Just want to bring some friends along since riding alone all the time can be kind of lonely, and most of the gang members are pretty well-written and likeable. It would be really interesting if each gang member had a specific skill (i.e. Karen for distractions, Charles for muscle).

yeah, i know for a fact when this game comes to PC, people will create scripthooks... the RAGE engine is pretty well known to modders and how rockstar names it's functions. The guy who made ragepluginhook.net will probably want to make another hook and he is very talented and will make something great for modders

Definitely know it can and probably will be modded in, but I am hoping that Rockstar does it themselves so that we can get that extra bit of polish for immersion, since there'll be things that modders can't do, like voice acting.

1000%... always gonna be best if rockstar hears us and does it themselves, that is ideal

 

mods always create conflicts because you can add whatever you want to a game but no matter what native scripts are executing and somethings you cant stop from happening
