Deadeye always fails me when I really need it

Recommended Posts

ravynwolvf

Like when a pack of wolves attacks me. I pull out my gun, which I can barely do anyway since he keeps spazzing out over the wolves, pull L2, push in the right stick...and nothing. It just won't trigger. It seems like it should just have a single button to hit to go into deadeye mode, paint your targets, and upon hitting the same button, open fire. It's clunky as hell. But that's beside the point; i wish I knew why I have so much trouble getting it to work. To the point where I did my first playthrough entirely without it, other than the times the mission triggers it for you. Just so unreliable for me.

Twice in a row now, same pack of wolves. Managed to enter deadeye, and it just popped right back out without firing.

Once you reach a certain level Deadeye targeting becomes manual, you have to paint targets with R1/RB.

 

If it ends moments after entering it maybe the bar is empty?

You need to constantly dip that tobacco so that you keep the meter full.

Yep, keep that tobacco flowing.

Maybe there's a mechanical issue with the controller itself?

I have a love/hate relationship with Dead Eye.

 

Vision issues make it hard to see the aim point in Regular vision and even harder in Dead-eye.  For hunting it works great to let me line up the headshots but in a frenzied situation not so well.

 

I prefer the level that lets you place the markers without the extra button-simply because I can sweep the point and know, if there is someone or something there needing to be shot I am going to shoot it.

I wager user error. Dead Eye is one of the most consistent mechanics in the game in my experience..

I don't have a problem with it, works well. Got to get the wolves before they get you, can't use it while you're being bit

The problem is that a lot of the animations in the game are scripted.  So for instance, when a wolf gets close enough to you, it's impossible to get Arthur to go into dead eye or even to shoot the thing until that animation has played out.  This is the same with a lot of things in the game including someone trying to jack your horse and going into cover.

Make sure the core isn't low and the bar outside the core isn't low.

 

Deadeye uses the bar outside the core and then the core itself. The core depletes at a rapid rate and Dead eye can end very quickly then. I also have noticed that Deadeye is very slow at regeneration so maybe you need to drink an opened snake oil tonic possibly every now and then.

I restore deadeye more than anything else in this game. I'm surprised Arthur doesn't die of mouth cancer
