I felt the same way at first.. but then I tried dual wielding with dead eye. 

I think my k/d must have doubled since then. 

But I spend alot of time picking indian tobaco now.

The accuracy of your weapons is increased when dead eye is in use, by accuracy I mean the reticle is as tight as it can be, reducing all possibility of your bullets straying off course from where you're aiming. Normally you have to wait for the reticle to tighten but Dead Eye makes it to where you do not have to do that. To get reliable accuracy dual wielding, Dead Eye must always be in use, otherwise you gotta wait much longer to land accurate shots dual wielding than you would using a single side arm. I prefer to not be using Dead Eye constantly just so I can hit the broadside of a barn, and go through Snake Oil faster than a drunk goes through alcohol.

I'm also a lancaster vs litchfield guy, yet despite having good aim and sometimes headshoting my target they never die. I've upgraded the guns too to improve them. What's the trick to actually getting them to work like they do in story mode?

You wanna deal high damage to anywhere but the head when your opponent got never without one and slow and steady. Against low ranks and npc I always use lancaster for easier headshots, with split point. But against proper pvp players, body shots with a  Litchfield with express ammo is my go to as its the best long range dps. 

Mid range, my favorite is double express schofield. They out dps all repeaters and rifles. Dunno if any pistols are better, don't use them... its a wild west game..

 

Close range, shotguns obviously. I think 2 x sawed off is at the top of cqc. But I used pump action, it do just fine for me

Is it worth buying a rolling Block for sniping considering that the bolt action and Springfield have scopes as well? 

I can't speak for the Rolling Block, but the Carcano is good for sniping--though it's a dedicated scope rifle, so 100% free aim.

The Rolling Block, both in-game and in reality, has better damage and range. The Carcano is just a standard infantry gun, and has a roughly .27 calibre [6.5mm] round. Meanwhile the Remington is a dedicated marksman gun packing the legendary .45-70 gov’t round. Far greater accuracy, good bit more stopping power, and much longer range. In-game these stats aren’t as noticeable, but the Remington does have better range and damage-per-shot. Carcano just has better ROF. It’s like comparing the Springfield to the Krag Jørgensen. You want better damage for each hit, or slightly better rate of fire?

Dunno if this is the right thread, but something is bothering me.

 

How does combining an arrow and a shotgun shell give a small game arrow? 

Is the arrow head simply covered with the shell, so it becomes a blunt arrow that doesn't damage the animals pelt, but simply just kills the small animals with blunt force?

   I am loving, LOVING explosive rounds & arrows. I currently pack a mauser, schofield, lancaster, pump action shotty (sometimes), & bolt action rifle, (& bow) with hi-ex rounds for all. I know that the explosive shotty round pamphlet is not quite as good as the express explosive, but I unlocked that 8 ranks earlier. As the game stands, manufacturing ammo is quite a pain. I find dynamite arrows the simplest to replenish, since I can buy dynamite at the start of any story mission or showdown series, & birds are (currently) easier to find in story missions.

Pretty much yeah!

 

The spent shotgun casing fits over the top of the arrow, and crimped with the feather holding it in place.

I'm currently using dual Schofields. One with express, one with high velocity. I use my Springfield to engage in the ground. Lancaster on horse back, and I almost always have my shotgun. I usually only carry the schofields in free roam unless necessary.

Been using a bolt action rifle most of the time and a pump action shotgun. Both of these are pretty dope. Nice amount of kills with both. The range on the Bolt is seriously awesome. Has anyone made videos of the max range?

 

Put a nice Wolf on my Bolt action too. Only weapon I have to have one of those. ;)

Anybody tried out the Rolling Block and/or Carcano with the new damage buff? I don't even own them on account of how crumby they were so I'm wondering if either is worth picking up now.

Tried the Carcano in a showdown series match, high up on a tower; 1 shot kill when I hit against the chest. Don't know if it was always like that though. I haven't used the Carcano too much. Lol

I bought the Rolling Block to test this.

 

Rolling Block Express vs Body Shot = Instant kill.

 

Rolling Block Express vs Slow and Steady III Body Shot = Instant kill to barely surviving a single bullet. (We tested twice. The guy was underweight with more damage taken, and had all his HP gone but leaving just health core).

 

So it's VERY powerful with Express. You don't even need Focus Fire III, Peak Condition III, Landon's Patience III or Winning Streak III.

 

But I'm not sure about Carcano Express to Body Shot and Slow and Steady III Body Shot.

 

The weight matters as well. Someone with maximum overweight could have -7.5% damage taken. Which is basically 107.5% HP.

Sorry, I'm about to extend guns to all weapons, as I don't want to dig up a dead thread.

 

For anyone who has purchased the Jawbone Knife, can it be customized at all?

BTW, what the heck is the Fire Arrow supposed to do? When I tried it (before 1.06), it didn't do diddley; just acted like a regular arrow...

Okay this may sound crazy but hear me out: dual wielding LeMats is actually the same as having 4 guns at once. 

 

The numbers do not lie!

 

Each one holds 9 revolver rounds, right? Every other revolver holds 6, and 9 is 6 + 3, correct? So, those 3 extra shots in each LeMat amount to half a gun each, combined they make one more revolver. That makes three guns total so far. And now, we account for the secondary shotgun barrel in each LeMat, which essentially equal a single Sawed off Shotgun with the barrels split between both hands. 

 

FOUR guns in TWO slots. Wow! What a deal! Don't be a fool, buy your LeMats today!

Saw someone yesterday with all black guns that had gold embellishments. Have to say it looked really badass, especially with his all black outfit

Yea, I see a lot of players with real style.

 

For me I have handguns in sets:

 

- Ornate set: Matching engraved silver Cattleman and Double-action with ebony grips. (IRL I’m less dexterous with my left hand, so the Double-action is in my off-hand holster) This is the only set I dual wield with.

 

- Gunslinger set: Black LeMat and Cattleman with ebony grips, the Lemat has an engraved chamber and the Cattleman has an iron frame and silver hammer/trigger. 

 

- Well-rounded set: Iron Schofield with black trigger/hammer and rosewood grip, then the high roller revolver (to be replaced with the Mauser once unlocked)

 

^ all of my handgun engravings (on Cattleman, double action, and LeMat) are subtle, with the inlay metals matching the finish

I haven't really bought any handguns because I don't use them very often. Thinking about trying out the LeMat though to start using handguns more. Is it worth it?

Very, the damage is high and having a shotgun on at all times (without having to equip from the horse) is invaluable 

 

a little slow, but worth it IMO

I almost bought a second one until I remembered how long it takes to reload one of them. It's obscene. Reloading two would take 30 minutes!

Since the Split Point crafting has been fixed I've been loading my Scholfield with Splits and LeMat with Express. Revolvers have finally become relevant!
