hi everyone i have been playing plenty of red dead redemption 2 and 1. but i am mostly talking about 2 here. lately i have been using the modern weapons. im talking about the mauser and semi auto pistols. the bolt action rifle and the semi auto shotgun. and i have to admit i really like them. they are some of my favorite guns in the game. dont get me wrong i love the revolvers and lever actions. but i also like using the newer guns too. and i was wondering how the community feels about them. i have seen some people saying that they didint like them and they just like the older guns. and thats fine. but i was wondering if anyone else likes them. i think they are very cool and unique. when i played the first redemption and when it sparked my interest in history. i was fascinated by these unique guns. and i learned about them. and i was excited to see most of them return in the second game. so what do you think of them?

 

 

and my second question. would you like to see more of them? and if so which ones? we are missing the high power pistol from the first one. i hope they add that. but are there any other modern guns that existed in that era that you would like to see? if so which ones? i would love to see more. especially since i dont know a lot about them. thanks.

The mauser was invented in 1896

semi auto pistol in 1892

semi auto shotgun was patented in 1900

bolt action rifle was early 1800's

They are correct with RDR2's timeline.

The only one they are missing are the Colts. It is a bit of a let down to not see it in this game.

I do like the current ones in the game, however, they are not good enough to use over the Schofield. No other handguns are IMHO. Especially with Dead Eye. The only reason I use that is because you are given it and all you have to do is acquire a second for your off hand. However, you could use the Cattleman if you wanted. Either way, their function is the same as their purpose in this game. The "stats" matter VERY little and basically, there is no need to purchase or modify weapons at all because of things like dead eye. Do I do it? ...of course. But if you wanted to spend money elsewhere you would not be hurt by not increasing the stats of your weapons or their looks in this game. Same can be said for ammo.

In terms of looks, I like the semi auto pistol, but not so much the Mauser.

I wouldn’t really classify the bolt action rifle in the game as a particularly cutting edge firearm by 1899. 

 

I expect we will end up seeing a Browning 1900 (which was actually made in 1896) and looks pretty similar to modern semi automatic pistols. Lugers too.

The Mauser Pistol is one of my favourite guns in the game. Semi-Auto pistol is also good, but looks ugly in comparison imo.

The awkward aesthetic is actually why I like it.  If it also looked good on top of having such a high rate of fire, ammo capacity and decent accuracy, it would just be too good.

Yes they need to add more Colts like the 1861 navy and some Remington revolvers too. No more modern guns please. There's enough already.

The Mauser is fine. There was a western that used the Mauser as the main gun. (The Great Silence).

Do watch it, it's one of the very best spaghetti westerns ever.  The snowbound setting and atmosphere influenced The Hateful Eight.  Spoiler-free warning: not a happy movie.  If you like the fact that sometimes the Red Dead games are a bummer, you are the right audience for this movie.

RDO, yeah, fine. RDR2, not really, unless they're historically accurate or very close to it.

I want a LeMat revolver with shotgun barrel. Can't be that hard to do.

I would like if they included foreign weapons like they did with the Mauser pistol. I would love to have a Mosin Nagant

 

Mosin-Nagant_M1891_Dragoon_-_Ryssland_-_

 

Or the Spanish guns (Bonifacio Star) from 1890-1905 that where used by hitmans, union workers, Factory owners and so on...

The pistols look ugly as f*ck and not what you would associate with a western overall. We 100% need more revolvers.

 

Especially considering there's a massive shortage of western games and we need all the old west guns we can get right now

Instead of the Mauser pistol I would rather have the Remington revolver from 1875:
