7/7 today, shooting a flying bird with a sniper rifle was irritating. Managed to kill an eagle slowly flying up after snatching a fish from a lake. As for the ambushes, I just chose a spot where several can happen (West Elizabeth is okayish) and rode between those spawnpoints and then respawned. Didn't take too long.

^lies. ambush encounters are de-activated until later today. and once activated, only a 4th of all locations will actually spawn, so 5 in total, with a refresh timer of 45 minutes....yeah 6/7 sounds good today

Can't seem to make an ambush spawn; no matter where I go or what I do.

 

The stranded strangers who do happen to spawn don't want to kill me; they actually need help and want a lift. What is wrong with you people? You're supposed to try and kill me! 😔

 

 

You can go deliver them and when you go back, most of the times they respawn and then it's an ambush

I see everyone talking about the 'stranger on the road' ambushes. Do these even work for the daily, actually? I've been searching for the '~20 guys attack from the rocks and the trees' sort of ambushes. 

 

They are marked with red lines on this map:

Spoiler

The only one this map seems to be missing is the one near Horseshoe overlook, directly between the burnt forest (not Limpany) and the river. That place in New Hanover is very good to try and spawn them.

Yes. Totally unreliable though. Besides actually finding someone spawn, it's 50/50 chance of being an escort or ambush.

Don’t know how true it is but seems to work for me. If they have a gun it’s going to be an ambush and if not its an escort.  You gotta look close though because they all seem to have holsters. Someone mentioned it here a while back and it’s been right so far.

So far 5/7, missing one bullrush, but that's because I joined Fool's Gold as soon as it popped up, that being my favorite of the only two freeroam PVP modes i actually enjoy, the other being King of the Castle. Most freeroam PvP events are just a s**tshow of random people shooting each other & basically ignoring the objective entirely. At least I seem to be on the ball with those two. Took third place & got my daily, with ease thanks to the armor. Now, to hope for an ambush . . . how often do you say THAT in this game?

This is another myth, I've had 2 without a gun showing turn into ambushes. Including the one near rathskeller being an ambush for the first time after more than 10 escorts.

That’s good to know. Haven’t done a whole lot so I wasn’t sure if it was actually true. Just seem to get lucky I guess.

4/7 today.

The game decided to freeze on me during an Ambush... Well, sh*t.

Ah well, 4 is more than enough for me anyway, I am above 100 gold, which should be enough for when the summer update hits.

 I only bother with them when the daily requires it, & even then I'm really picky. I try to reload until target races comes up. Which I can tolerate, because most folks are too busy trying to hit the targets instead of each other.

7/7 today. 

 

I switched sessions in Tumbleweed until the lady in need appeared south of Rathskeller fork. It turned out to be an ambush. I was lucky. 

 

Kill a bird with a sniper rifle was tricky. I waited in the marches north of Sant Denis until a flock of big pelicans or herons flew over. One flew east, one flew west, one didn't make it to the nest. 

 

The freeroam event was master Archer. Everybody was just running around shooting each other. Guilty as charged, I mowed everyone down. I stopped at three kills. 

 

 

Bulrush and thyme grow in abundance around Heartland overflow.

Easy 6/7 for me, ambush near citadel rock spawned first time.

 

been on majority of the day and haven’t been invited to a single free roam event...

 

edit: as I posted this a master archer event popped up. Feel like a douche running around with pistol in an archery competition but oh well 7/7

Sniping a bird was easy peasy work for me! Did it in no time!*

 

 

 

*Might be a total lie. Might have taken me 10 shots to do it until an Owl flew right into my sights...

Just angle right, you could hit the bird even with a stone!

5/7

Fishing challenge popped up while trying for an ambush for basically I'd be forced to play an extra 45 minutes and hope one you can use a gun in spawns

 

Seriously, FR events should be more occurrent than they are

10 shots? It took me way more than that.

I only got mine cause I found a flock of big birds. Fired, missed, but shot another bird lol

 

Trying to get the small things, especially from a far distance is hard as heck

1 shot, Carcano.

 

Pro-Gamer tip.

 

Position yourself behind the bird and fire at it, as it flies away from you. Don't aim at it as it flies from L to R or R to L. Behind is better.

I never found an ambush yesterday, but I only had about 30 min to look for one before it changed over. Oh well. Today will likely be another 6/7 at best; unless I decide to pass on the free roam event. Definitely not touching the Showdown though!

Probably took me about that many. I haven't got a Carcano, so I used the Rolling Block. It's as slow af moving it around, trying to aim at flying birds. I managed to hit something, but I can't remember what, within a small flock.

Creeping Thyme again? Well I remember where it was from yesterday lol

 

Posse Race tho, ugh

 

FINALLY got it

FR was the reason it took three hours.

Animal kill, fishing challenge.... in a ROW! That shouldn't happen if you want challenges like this! -_-
