RED DEAD ONLINE BETA UPDATE (5/3/19)

Recommended Posts

NEW EVANS REPEATER RIFLE, FOOL’S GOLD FREE ROAM EVENT AND MORE


Last week we implemented our first round of significant updates to the Red Dead Online Beta including new gameplay systems, experience balancing and over 300 bug fixes, another step on the road to building out what this world will become. This beta period allows us to shape and improve the fundamentals of that world before the journey of Red Dead Online truly begins. As Red Dead Online evolves, we will keep adding and improving features to give you a deeper connection to the world, your character, your horse and your weapons, as well as adding new gameplay that will help players carve out their own fate across the lawless frontier.

 

Here’s a look at two new additions launching today, including the return of a powerful weapon from the original Red Dead Redemption, and a frantic new addition to the list of Free Roam Events to experience as you move across the world. In addition, everyone will also get a package of useful items for playing this week.

New Weapon: Evans Repeater


The Evans Repeater is a powerful long-range rifle that’s known for being in John Marston’s arsenal during the events of Red Dead Redemption. The Evans Repeater has a high bullet capacity and is deadly at medium and long distances, with an especially high rate of fire. It also has customization options like Stocks, Sights and Wraps – to make this an essential part of your character’s weapon inventory. You can pick one up now directly from the Rawson, Wheeler & Co catalogue or at any Gunsmith.

You always need to be prepared to go out in a blaze of glory, but a little armor can delay the inevitable. This is the idea behind the Fool’s Gold Free Roam event. Fool’s Gold is the latest addition to the rotating roster of Free Roam Events, a selection of special competitive game types that periodically invite you to participate as you roam across the world of the Red Dead Online Beta. When you opt-into a Free Roam Event you’ll automatically join the event location before it begins. Like all Free Roam events, Fool’s Gold is a quick and easy way to jump into some fun competition and rack up a little extra XP and cash. It’s also a great way to quickly complete weapon, kill or combat-related Daily Challenges without attacking players in an open session.

In Fool’s Gold, you will battle other players to wear the Golden Armor, taking down opponents while wearing it to earn points. You can also score points by taking out a rival player that’s wearing the Golden Armor, which then puts the armor up for grabs to whoever reaches it first.

 

In addition to Fool’s Gold, there are a range of other Free Roam Events regularly taking place across the five states in the Red Dead Online Beta:

 

Cold Dead Hands: Fight for control over a target for the longest amount of time.


Competitive Challenges: Compete to get the highest score in a given, randomly-selected challenge within a set time limit (currently includes Bow, Headshot, Horseback, Longarm, and Sidearm Kill Challenges).


Dispatch Rider: Posses compete to be the first to deliver a horse to the assigned destination.


King of the Castle: Compete to gain and maintain control of the castle area by staying alive inside of it - whoever controls the active area for the highest percentage of the event time wins.


Master Archer: Compete to score the most points by hitting the most targets as accurately as you can within the time limit.


Like all Free Roam Events in the Red Dead Online Beta, Fool’s Gold can be played as individual free-for-alls or as skirmishes between Posses. To join Fool’s Gold, look for an alert to pop-up on screen while in Free Roam and then accept the invite. If a Posse leader accepts an invite to Fool’s Gold (or any other Red Dead Online Beta Free Roam Event) then their Posse members will automatically join the event with the posse leader. As the Red Dead Online Beta continues and we gain more data and feedback from players, we will continue to add new Free Roam events and a lot more.

 

New Care Package


We appreciate all the support you’ve shown thus far during the beta period, and this week all Red Dead Online Beta participants will receive a special care package (redeemed either at your camp’s lockbox or at any post office across the five states) as a show of our appreciation. This includes a host of items to help you survive life on the frontier and tackle any new Daily Challenges in Free Roam or Free Roam Events, on mission or in a Showdown Series:

 

60x High Velocity Pistol Ammo
60x High Velocity Repeater Ammo
2x Fire Bottles
8x Fire Arrows
2x Jolly Jack’s
2x Potent Horse Medicine
1x Lake Lure

As an added bonus, anyone who completes five Daily Challenges at any point between now and March 11 will be gifted one Special Spinner next week. The Special Spinner is a handy lure to catch fish of all sizes that cannot be lost if you ever cut the line.

 

Please do continue sending us your feedback about all the latest updates to the Red Dead Online Beta by submitting it by category via the official Feedback website – let us know what you think about Free Roam Events including the newly added Fool’s Gold, about the Evans Repeater and weaponry in general, and any or all other aspects of the Red Dead Online Beta.

 

Stay tuned for a raft of updates big and small including gameplay like the Fishing Challenge, new Showdown Modes, and Target Races – along with new weekly bonuses and a lot more.

I was hoping for some of the clothing to be made available, and so far I don't think I'll buy the Evans. I won't be playing Fools Gold either. 

 

Add to that R*s idea of how to fix glitches seems to be making items unsellable and a new under the map glitch on top of everything else that is still broken.

 

My overall feeling is meh right now.

 

But at least the dripfeed ball is rolling.

Cougar carcasses are completely unsellable for the next few days at least. But what about the pelts? And of course, outfits that were locked last week still are.

I do like this section of text.

 

Do I think many players will take notice or change play style? No. But I like the direction R* is at least attempting to push in.

Rockstar only added that because of the gaming sites and reddit posts that were calling them out for encouraging griefing. Is that statement even true though? Can you finish ones like "kill players from a moving train" in a pvp mode?

I think it's technically true. @Ektope, who has far more PvP experience than myself, posted how in another thread a few days ago (can't find the post to link, sorry dude).

 

Even though it might be technically possible, I find it unlikely most players would manage, or attempt, to complete such challenges in structured PvP game modes and I'm not a fan of such challenges.

 

I agree completely that it is more than likely a response to negative posts, social media etc. but, R* very rarely, if ever, respond to such things, so I do appreciate them pointing players in the direction of structured PvP. Even if I don't believe it will make much difference.

-Oh great, Crips was ACTUALLY doing well for a few weeks. Picking perfect spots, pitching in the right areas... 

NOW the fecker won't respond or move at all but he'll gladly take my money! But I was able to get him killed by lawmen chasing me to my camp. Who's laughing now Crips?!

[You took my money and now you have more than enough to revive yourself. R* has the NERVE to charge $4 to revive Crips. ]

 

-Vendors are still bugged to high hell and back. 

 

-Gun wraps are still bugged too

How are gun wraps bugged exactly? I have them on every weapon that they're an option for. Perhaps I could just ditch them because they don't work anyway?

The person you quoted most likely had a session bug. Most players forget you are allowed the switch sessions.

is the Evans Repeater still good though.....can it compete with the other weapons we got. I'm just asking because I just back on to continue the grind because I just got this weird craving to play it. As far as the clothing I'm just waiting for the jacket with the fringes to become available(don't know the name), but I'll have to get in in another color instead of the one I really wanted.

 

I can't blame you though because I get the same feeling, but over here still waiting for survival mode and if anybody is waiting for Bank Robberies or Train Robberies.......I have a feeling you'll be waiting longer than those waiting for other PvE modes. Not saying I'm right, just got a feeling. Guess we will have to see what R* does in the mean time.

Definitely give the game another chance, because of the complaining they have added new free mode events which are really fun. The Evans repeater is also probably a good rival for the varmint, I've been popping targets all day guys. Just try out the new update

They don't slow down the degradation of the guns. You can switch as many sessions as you'd like but your guns are always going to get very worn out within ten minutes or so.

You can switch as many sessions as you'd like that doesn't fix a bug that's been in the game since launch. 

 

What drugs are you on when you play online? Or do you just keep the rose coloured glasses on?

Huh, well I haven't experienced that bug. Are you playing on a PS4 PRO or Xbox X? If you are expecting top notch optimization along with less bugs I'd play on those. Judging by your post history you have neither.

 

I also do not take any drugs nor ever will, I enjoy red dead online because I know what the game has, unlike those who erm.. forget that you can switch sessions or restart the game when you encounter a minor bug. Sounds familiar?

Yea you can cut it out with the baity posts taking digs at people who have opinions that don't align with yours.

 

Also, playing on a Pro and X won't make a buggy game less buggy.

First of all I do not have an issue with those who disagree with myself, I only look to correct those who misinterpret or overthink the game. I could say "Hey Jason that's offensive to correct me" but I understand you see a issue and hope I can fix it. I am not a difficult person to conversate with. 

 

Sorry for the slight off topic shenanigans, but pro & X does improve the game. My friends who play on the X, have fluid gameplay whereas my standard ps4 friend experiences issues.
