Alternatives in Freeroam

Recommended Posts

Assblaster

Aside from stranger/story missions, what activities do you like to pursue in freeroam that others might not be likely to do? The world of Red Dead Online is vast, with so much to appreciate and many things to do if you use your imagination. For me, it all depends on which character I happen to be playing. I'll get the ball rolling by discussing some of the ways I pass the time in freeroam.

 

The activities I engage in revolve around the motivations of my character. I love all my characters, so each one gets its fair share of playing time. I do favor a few of them a bit more than others, but I have fun with all equally. I won't detail them fully, or go into all of the characters I have, but I will delve a little into some of them to illustrate the unique approach each one has to the old world of Red Dead.

 

One of my characters is a Lemoyne native who doesn't travel quite as much as some of the others. He's a troublemaker and mild psychopath. He generally goes about shirtless and shoeless, looking to start fights; but he prefers fighting bare-knuckled or with a knife. He avoids towns except to sell to the butcher from time to time, as he's a prolific hunter. He's been known to hijack wagons, climb into the back and fire shots in the air to keep the horses going, all the while ducking down and taking shots at passers-by! He enjoys various kinds of mischief & mayhem.

 

Another character is an honor-bound former lawman. He travels a lot; hunts and fishes from time to time; and looks for bandit hideouts. His main passion, though, is travelling, sight-seeing, and meeting new people and old friends.

 

Yet another is an old man who lives in a cabin in snowy Ambarino. I begin and end every session with him in the same cabin up north. He hunts small game and fishes a lot. He ventures out sometimes, however, to deal out "retribution" (from his warped perspective) against so-called "wrongdoers" -- from whom he exacts "just" compensation for his trouble.

 

A favorite character of mine is a mature former farmer whose land and family were taken from him by outlaws. He now spends his time in melancholy travels, seeking vengeance against the likes of those that wronged him, making his living collecting & selling herbs, crafting tonics, and occasionally fishing.

 

I have a Native-American (Blackfoot) character, wronged by the white man, seeking to avenge his people and satisfy his ordeal-born bloodlust. Hunts & fishes when not wreaking havoc on white settlements.

 

My wife has a character in the game too. Her character was born in poverty, and to play this out my wife forced her to go without too many clothes, weapons & even the horse! She only fights in self-defense, and is leery of strangers -- especially men. This character fares well, but is limited in the stuff she has available to her. She still doesn't own a horse: she only uses horses or mules she can steal. Hunts & fishes for a living, never steals or kills unless necessary.

 

One of my characters is a complete psycho. I play him when I want to vent steam lol. He doesn't hunt or fish much but he steals & kills constantly -- especially lawmen. One of his activities is to go into the Heartland Oil Fields building to stir up trouble, then hides in there to kill lawmen. Not on the roof though: too easy and boring to kill from up there.

 

Finally, I'm pretty attached to a character who loves fine living and revelry. He dresses in fine clothes, eats luxuriant foods, gets drunk, and generally raises hell. For a living, he steals jewelry and also beats up and robs travellers.

 

I have a few other characters, but enough about me and what I do. I want to know what you guys & gals do out there on the dusty trail! How do you pass the time in freeroam, apart from missions? In what ways do you like to have fun? Share your freeroam stories and ideas!

11...too many, maybe, considering the limited time I have to play. But I have fun and that's what counts. Not too many role-players playing the game, I suppose, but that's okay. Competitive play is fun too, for those that like it. At least I'll never get bored! Always something to do, something to aspire to. Always fun to be had. I'll never burn out on the game.

No extra character slots, I do it by creating extra accounts on ps4. I made the psn ID of each one the character name: e.g., "Hoss-Cartwright", etc.

Dunno the maximum, between the wife and I we have 13 linked accounts so far. I definitely don't plan to make more lol. It's good for R* though. If I or the wife don't have enough time/cash to outfit a character the way we want, we buy gold bars, which means more cash for R*.

Yeah I've been playing role-playing games since the '70s: original D&D, 1st edition AD&D, Boot Hill (one of my favorites), Top Secret, Middle Earth Role Playing, Gamma World...all great memories.

I do not bother with free roam cause I'm lucky if I last 10 minutes in a session before I get disconnected.
