Bloody stupid this game is you get one shotted with slow and steady and i cant kill a one shot, both using explosives LOL 

 

Just shows how f*cked up the game is 

 

explosive ammo and all ablitie cards should never have been in the game they aint real for the era and to me it shows the way R* is thinking and what may come in the distant future unfortunately.

High Explosive ammunition absolutely existed in 1899. It is just an evolution of mortar/cannon technology that dates back the 15th century at least, after all. The 1868 St Petersburg Declaration was created to specifically prohibit the military use of explosive and incendiary musket/rifle ammunition because it was considered excessively cruel to use on personnel. 

 

The real question is if you could make it by rubbing any bullet with lard. Which the answer is no. But that’s just a matter of gameplay simplification. In reality the bullet needs to be hollow and filled with explosive filler. In-period, this would be silver/mercury fulminate which is a weak friction-sensitive explosive. 

 

All this means is that when you use explosive or incendiary rounds in-game, you’re committing a war crime. Kek

Thanks @alex1055. I'll pick up some tied pants, I've been waiting for those. I'm disappointed that the Benbow Jacket is still locked.

 

If you get a second could you check out the Pelt Half Chaps for me, please?

 

The chaps are still locked I'm afraid

I'm so excited that R* are making me wait multiple weeks to put a single outfit together. Dripfeeding really does extend the fun. /s

It's essentially capture the flag, but with bags of loot instead of a flag.

If this limited stock clothing works something like what I envisage it working like, it's another sh*tty cash grab.

 

If the limited items from this week disappear when next week's items become available it means players will need to buy multiple variations of each item, before it is no longer available, just to have the privilege of being able to test which combinations they like best later down the line.

It didn't exist at all as we see it in this game. The effect it has in this game is on par with nitro, which is absurd and impossible. The kind of explosive effect seen in the game isn't the least bit accurate as a representation of what these explosive bullets you're referring to did. 

 

Put simply, these bullets created "enormous ravages in the body, its entrance being very small, but its exit very large" -- i.e., they didn't cause a huge extraneous explosion as seen in the game, but merely enlarged the exit wound in the body, similar to a shotgun exit wound. Much greater than your average round, but packing a punch inside the body which caused greater damage.

 

The explosive effect in the game is ridiculous. Again, similar to what nitroglycerin did, except nitro could never be used that way (in a bullet round) because it was far too volatile and therefore dangerous to even be carried much less fired from a gun.

 

But it is a game not a realistic portrayal of life back then, so this exaggeration may be overlooked IMO. Not worth getting too serious about.

 

Here is some additional info on the subject:

Sweet Dee? Your character is a Dead wringer for Dee from Always Sunny.

 

Ugh, how boring and lame, time limited clothes and capture the flag. This game will be dead before it gets am update with actual substantial content in it. When half the content is reskined guns and clothes, you done f*cked up R*..

So, here we go again. Adversary Modes and clothes, the pinnacle of Online gaming in 2019.

 

So the fishing challenges aren’t out yet? Anything else worthy of mentioning?

Why on Earth are they making items 'limited availability' in a game desperate for new content? Its like they're intentionally trying to kill this game off...

They did state at the one of the very rare announcements that some stuff would be limited and to keep an eye for it 

 

What BS though its not as if we even need it

There are upwards of 100 unique weapons variations from SP, and they played it so conservatively that it looks like those will be dripped 1-2 per update alongside one new weapon. 

 

They really just don't get it, or don't care and are purposely killing the game. This is R*, they HAVE the resources, and if they don't for whatever reason, they have plenty of money to hire more people. It's just sad and pathetic really..

They obviously do, but for the life of me I can't think why.

 

Everything in the "update" should have been released on day 1, the game is nowhere near mature enough to be dripfeeding and time limiting clothing items. 

 

It's a lazy way to attempt to string out a bare bones update and the limited time clothing is a blatant cash grab.

 

I wouldn't mind time limits on "special" items (for want of a better word), the rare shotgun for example, it's basically a double barrel reskin that costs more, make that available for a limited time, then it will actually be rare.

 

But trousers that have string tied around the knees have limited stock? Because buckskin, leather, cotton and f*cking string are such rare commodities? GTFO R*.

I don't understand this whole 'limited stock' thing. Does it mean they won't be available again once the event week concludes, or just for a certain period of time? I can't see why R* would go through the effort of creating new clothing items if they're just going to remove them a week later. Hopefully the newswire post today clears it up for us.

My guess would be yes, that once a certain period of time has lapsed, another guess being a week, we'll no longer be able to buy the items.

 

It's a classic cash grab. You might only want 2 pairs of tied pants for outfits. But you like them and might want to use the blue pair, or brown pair, as part of an outfit in future, paired with a vest from a future update. So instead of just buying the 2 pairs you want now, you buy 4 pairs because you won't be able to buy them after this week ends.

 

It's even worse with gold only items, such as the Pelt Half Chaps. What might some players do if gold only items they want, but can't afford, are only available for a limited time? Some of them will make Mr. Zelnick happy.

Truthfully, we don't really know, but as @ALifeOfMisery 's responded, it could just mean this week:

Honestly, I/we won't know how long limited stock actually lasts for until the Newswire later (if R* deem us worthy of knowing) or until the items simply disappear from the catalogue.

 

But however long it lasts, and my guess would be a week, with new time limited stock coming next Tuesday, we will only have a set amount of time to buy what we want from whatever is time limited.

 

I'm lucky this week, as from what has been released today there's only Tied Pants that I want. But I'll be buying 5 or 6 pairs just in case there are future clothing items I want to wear pairs that I don't necessarily want now with.
