Or just dual wield the crap out of the bastards!

Dual Wielding is a f*cking massacre after the update. Handguns seem to be far more accurate in rapid fire at short distances and the reload times have been drastically reduced.

 

My guys preferred fighting style was Dual Revolvers so I am good.

It happens when a mission starts weird, like a black screen teleporting you to another place, or a message "come back later" appears before mission start.

I noticed it happening to me, restarted PS4 and held L1 when booting up the game to clear cache fixed it

PSA: If your bounty mission doesn't start immediately after you click accept DON'T DO IT. You won't get the XP for it. Join a new lobby. If it fades to black and teleports you and then starts the mission, it's bugged and you wont get the role xp.

Do the usual double tap to spin your gun, then hold R1 to bring up the different spins you can do

I didnt even know I could do this to begin with 😮

 

Also, change knife to lantern and get a pistol and you can carry the lantern on belt and a gun in a cave

Maps can be looted during bounty hunter missions. I snagged one while grabbing a bounty. Not sure if that was known or not.

Wanted to deliver two wanted together yesterday. When I had delivered the unconscious one it was said that the other one had escaped. (He lay dead on my horse)

So I guess you can only deliver one per mission without a wagon. Or have I forgotten something?

Well if you were doing it solo, that is where you went wrong. Otherwise it is a proximity issue. Idk if this is what Rockstar had planned.

 

Apparently the way it works, is that if the 2nd bounty is not within a certain proximity to the first one being turned in, it will count as lost/escaped.

 

It happened to me and my buddy earlier when we returned to Rhoades, he was walking into the office with his bounty and I was closer to the doctor's office. It played the cutscene as normal, but told us we only turned in one. We did another right after and stood as close as we could whilst carrying the targets towards the Tumbleweed sheriff's office, got full credit and both marked alive.

I have gotten XP from missions that begin both of those ways. I didn't get XP from hunts that began the traditional way. Not entirely sure what is causing the negation of role XP, but this is most likely a subjective bug.

The spin you gain through progression will become your default flourish. (Arthur's traditional spin and holster is your normal default, but the progression overrides it... not sure how to switch back). But as stated, double tap LB/L1 to holster with a flourish, while the animation plays tap RB/R1 to open up your spin tricks (THPS FOR LIFE) and hold down the corresponding button to perform the desired trick.

No worries :)

 

 

Maybe throwing them in may work. I dont ever recall seeing that option prior to the update... just the drop one. So, assuming this function should be used for tossing something further... walk as close as you can to the drop off area, throw them, and then walk in with the other over your shoulder?

 

It would take someone willing to not get full payout to figure it out, but if it works, maybe soloing a 2 target bounty just got easier

I didn't attempt to walk in further. The opulent one doesn't let you get too far in.

 

I'll try later and update this post.

Lasso one and drag it behind your horse, with the other thrown over the back?

Anyone do the free roam event on the train yet ?  You defend cargo on the train from enemies and score based on amount of NPC's killed.

Like @Pocket Fox said, these bounty hunter missions make you feel in a spaghetti western movie. Yesterday I did the most intense mission in RDO so far, fought an entire army (32 enemies!), almost died, got award, golden teeth, golden buckle, golden pocket watch, tarot card, had to pursuit the target again... I had to record it:

Anybody bought the bolas? I guess they're only usable on people...  I would have loved it if we could tangle horse's legs with them!

So is the reinforced lasso even worth getting? Hitting the bounty a couple times during the ride back seems to keep them under control just fine and once I start doing multi-target missions I assume they'll be locked into the bounty wagon?

The exp for single bounties seems rough? Barely makes a dent in the level bar.

Me! Got lvl 10 and bought bolas and bounty wagon, both USELESS! Bolas is the same thing of lasso (just a bit faster) but you lost them very easy and need to buy other for $30! You can take it from the ground but sometimes just disappears.

The wagon you can buy it on stables, but can't call your horse at the same time, you can't whistle for the horse on wagon, making any kind of pursuit impossible.

 

Bolas & Wagon are very very frustrating.

 

edit: Oh, bolas don't work with horses, and if you throw it on a deer, the animal just fall, get up and run.

The video was dope. The new music, is downright mesmerizing at times. It's been playing on repeat in my head.

 

Sidenote:

The fugitive Ida Black, has the filthiest dialogue in the whole series. I love her criminal ass.

Yea the music that plays whilst bounty hunting makes it twice as epic. I think that music was originally in the trailers for RDR2 if I’m not mistaken.
