In my opinion: Lancaster or Evans. I prefer the Lancaster.

Best Overall is Lancaster (IMO). Some will argue the Litchfield, so it might be a personal preference thing, but most have said Lancaster, and I agree.

 

Evan's is a favourite of mine, but I can't lie and say it's better than the Lancaster. Fun to use though? Yes.

All down to what you need it for, Pure accuracy then Lancaster, Dealing with npc enemy IE hideout/ambushe/bushwacks and camp defence defo the Evans for its load but it works best for me with high velocity ammo

Lancaster is my favorite as well. Tried the evans and Litchfield, but it didn't work out.

The Litchfield might be the favorite for players using PIB to negate the poor accuracy

Lancaster for me too. 

 

Never bought the Litchfield as I don't PvP and although I bought the Evans, I went back to my Lancaster.

I only have the Litchfield; so far it's served me well, but I'm also open to other options. I do use it with PIB, but I'm also not one for PvP in this game either; it would be for missions, hideouts, etc. Would the Lancaster be a significant step up from the Litchfield or would I barely notice the difference? I primarily use express rounds with the Litchfield and I'm more concerned with how many non-head shots it takes to kill an enemy as opposed to its loading time. Thanks! ☺

You'll see a great improvement in accuracy. If not instantly, then when you've reached max weapon affinity.

 I'd chose the Lancaster over Litchfield for PVE any day

I think the Litchfield ist more prefered in PVP because of its raw power. I think you need 3 body-shots with the Lictchfield against high lvl players an 5 with the Lancaster. But if you are taking about accuracy and Headshots, then Lancaster ist the way to go.

Who stands around to allow 3-5 body shots on them? A big factor in PvP isn't necessarily the weapon, it's Ability Card load-out. I really think it comes down to personal choice. If there was one weapon in each category that just dominated, everyone would be using the same weapons.

Sorry i meant 2x body shots (with the right cards). Since getting headhots ist not that easy like before the update, trying to get body-shot-kills is an option. I personally use the lancaster and still go for headshots. But if your (new) tactic is to go for those body shots, u propably want to use the litchfield over the lancaster.

Lancaster, no contest, while I find the Evans to be really good in PvE thanks to his insane ammo capacity.

Isn't there a difference in lockon-range between the Lancaster and the Lirchfield?

Lancaster for me. Accurate, looks nice and does decent damage. It's good for every situation.

Think it's mostly down to personal taste overall. 

Repeater Carbine has decent damage and a fast reload, looks old school too (Fitting given it is basically a Spencer Model 1860 Carbine) makes it a good choice for a Civil-War/Indian War era loadout, all around one of the better starting weapons I've seen in games, does it's job well enough, but isn't so good at it, that it makes upgrading to something newer pointless (Battlefield 3 made that mistake with the M16/M4).

Lancaster is your iconic Winchester Repeater, not much else to say about it really, good fit for just about everything, just be sure to put aside some funds to make it truly your own gun.

Litchfield is a 1860s Henry Repeater, so it's good for a loadout style like the Repeater Carbine, but does more damage per shot and has more ammo (16 shots per reload vs just 7 shots). Main drawback being dat reload time, compared to the Repeater Carbine, other than that it's a pretty nice upgrade, more so given that both guns are from around the same time period.

Evans Repeater is basically what you go for if you need a weapon that is basically the AR-15 of 1899, if you're going to get into a shootout that requires you to have a weapon that can throw lead for extended lengths of time without needing to reload, this is your gun, be warned tho, make your shots count, reloading 26 rounds takes a good while.

Do weapons not auto reload every time you use dead-eye online.

In story mode I never had to reload because every time you activate dead-eye your weapon auto reloads instantly.

But if you do need to fire off a couple of shot with the Evans whilst its loading it can just aim and shoot, You dont have to wait for a full reload.

When I just started RDO my favorite gun was the bolt-action rifle. Did everything ingame with that rifle when possible and didn't even owned a shotgun. Later on I purchased a pump-action shotgun and a Litchfield. From then on I left my rifle on my horse and used the Litchfield for everything, allways with express ammo.

 

Last week, level 74 now, I bought the Evans and I'm really suprised how great that repeater is. If I compare it with the Litchfield, I think it's easier to get headshots (on npc's in missions that is, because for pvp I only did the Ancient Tomahawk deathmatch this week).

 

It holds 26 bullets, which really helps in missions because now you can reload when the gunfight in the mission has a break, at your own pace. The 16 shots with the Litchfield for me always ran down to zero in the midst of a gunfight, leading to two shots reloading, firing two shots, reloading two shots, etc.

 

But best of all is the sound of the Evans repeater,  it's  just so much better than the sound of the Litchfield.

I picked up the Lancaster a few days ago and have been using it quite often; it is indeed very accurate and I like its sound a bit more than the Litchfield. The Lancaster is excellent for clearing hideouts and missions where the NPCs are a bit further away in distance, but I feel as though the Litchfield works much better when defending the random campsites and when you're up against ambushes and NPCs who are a bit closer in proximity. With missions and most stranger missions, I alternate depending on my mood and the objective at hand, but I generally always use the express rounds for both; I've been trying the regular rounds here and there as well, and I feel as though they work a bit better for me overall with the Litchfield.

 

I'm very satisfied with my purchase, but now I'm tempted to pick up the Evans and see how it compares to the other two. The fact that it can fire 26 bullets without a reload makes it seem like an excellent investment and a worthwhile choice for most situations. Yea, it can definitely be a pain at times having to scroll through all of the weapons on the wheel, but I use a repeater or rifle most of the time, so I'm thinking that I should at least give it a try.

 

Lots of great feedback here; thank you all for sharing your experiences! ☺

I love the Evans, everything from the sound and feel of it to the round capacity, it's one of my favorites. Not so great for hunting but good for everything else. Love the Lancaster too, obviously great effective repeater.

My favorite repeater is now.........the bolt action rifle. Express and high velocity ammo.
The Lancaster was until i found the power and accuracy of the bolt action was taking out enemies better.

The bolt action, not scoped, was my big game rifle while the rapid fire 14 round Lancaster for combat.
Hitting the target and damage per hit is what counts.

Not getting hit is also important and the longer range of the bolt action allows a greater seperation from enemies.
Along with getting hit less when i hang back i can also manage flanking attacks better.

Been using the bolt action mainly, but recently got an evans repeater too. Bolt action is for hunting, evans makes gang hideouts and camp defending a lot lot easier. 26 round before reloading and while reloading you can still shoot. Should have gotten it earlier.

I also love the sound of it a lot. Got both the rifles scoped for hunting and sniping gangs. I hardly use handguns.

I overall prefer Evans... But Lancaster is good for hunting aswell, Evans degrades carcasses by 1 star. It's down to personal preference overall

As an avid Freeaimer I don't find repeaters very useful. The hipfire is incredibly inaccurate even up close and if you use a scope I'd rather be using a sniper rifle.

 

Damage wise I tend to go for body shots and repeaters are somewhat lacking compared to a Carcano. 

 

Defensive mode might be the thing to put repeaters back in the spotlight. Since players can't autoaim you or use paint it black you can use different cards. I'd recommend all soloists to use Focus Fire and posses to include Quite The Inspiration. A posse will easily overpower and outlast any posse not using these two cards in a true Freeaim battle.

What do you hunt with repeater?

Evans doesn't degrade anything more than the lancaster.

If you hunt with regular rounds with Lancaster, you get 3 star carcasses from deer and other medium animals. It's even described as a hunting weapon or some such in the catalogue.

Really? I've tried so many times, but never been able to get a 3 star deer with the Lancaster 😯

I get 3 star coyotes and foxes with bolt acyion rifle though..

Do you just headshot with the Lancaster on deer?
