New free roam events

Recommended Posts

AmyStone

Does anyone like any of the new free roam events? I've played them all and think they're awful. The one I played where you have to round up bounties and drop them off is obviously not popular with many. It must have had at least 20 people in at the start and by the end only 6 were left. That's unless they all got errors - which is possible.

the salvage one is cool but god damn awful if you're the last one left alive (I know from experience)

You only have 1 life in them so it's possible they died.

 

But the bounty ones are poo so maybe people just quit, Salvage is a great source of collectables and Trade Route is ez exp.

That that one. You couldn't kill other players.

All of the new free roam events are like that. They're all one life and you can't kill other players in them.

 

Trade Route is entirely PvE where as Scavenge and the BH ones have a competitive element to them. Trade Route is the most fun IMO as it's just a fun shooting gallery but Scavenge is the best exp and cash if you know how to do it

Can only echo what's already been said.

 

Day of Reckoning isn't my cup of tea, the role XP payout is barely worth the time even if I was going to play it out of pragmatism.

 

Salvage is good, get to keep the loot, lots of role and regular XP up for grabs. Can be very profitable.

 

Trade Route is by far my favourite. Loads of regular XP on offer, my M.O. is getting at the front, Springfield loaded with express rounds and one shot NPC's. The 18 Trader units are good, the role XP is decent too. It edges out Salvage for me by being entirely PvE.

It's the same for all of the free roam events that don't involve killing and one reason that I don't think many are worth bothering with unless you find them a lot of fun. The xp for all of them could be increased a bit. Railroad Baron can be good for xp and can easily get you between 2000 and 3000 xp just from the killing alone.

When does Salvage even spawn? I've never got it but I see Day of Reckoning and Manhunt all the f*cking time

Salvage is my favorite, even if I never get more than 4-5 collectibles.

The bounty hunter ones are meh.

I like trade route, I'm just horrible at it no matter where I position myself.  The extra 18 goods are nice though

 

I really hope they add more.

Day of Reckoning is fun, and I use it to work on the Bounties Delivered Dead award. It'll be more fun when & if R* fixes the outlaws spawning improperly, outlaws that can shoot but not be shot, and having a five cent bounty upon returning to free roam after the event.

Salvage isn’t the most exciting, but the loot and payouts are good. 

 

Trade Route is a lot of fun.

 

Manhunt could’ve been OK but the payouts are terrible, so don’t bother. 

 

I haven’t tried Day of Reckoning yet.

Hell I can't even get any of the original ones to run on a frequent basis. No matter if I opt for free roam or one of the specific map areas like New Hanover etc. Or if I'm offensive v. defensive play style.  Yesterday was the first time I got TWO invites. And they were for the same damned thing Hunting non existent animals around the map in a confined area. Player to animal spawn ration was something like 15 : 1.  Completely worthless waste of time

 

I've yet to see any invites to the other free mode events. Never mind the fact I've had that collector's letter sitting in my character's inventory for over a week now.  But STILL no invite to the special Collector's free roam mission event

Haven't done the BH ones yet as I'm only just now a high enough rank to receive them, but I really enjoy Salvage and Trade Route. You can pick up a lot of collectables in a short amount of time in Salvage which makes for great money and xp. Trade Route is my favorite since it's cooperative PvE and you get a decent reward for it. 

 

Had Trade Route glitch out the other day at the first stop where we were stuck in a cut-scene like screen but the game wouldn't progress. Instead  of leaving, almost all of us stayed in the lobby and we all just ran around and took turns driving the train around the map until the timer ran out. It was actually quite fun lol

I think I like Trade Route, but I've only played it half a time. Dumbass stepped over the railing and fell off the train. Then when I called for my horse to get back on it got run over by said train.

 

Is there a way to quit missions, outside of quitting to the menu? Any mission for that matter?

I found out Railroad Baron was very much not for me, but by that time I was already ass-deep in getting murdered.

For me it's:

 

Trade Route > Salvage >> Manhunt >>>>> Day of Reckoning

 

Unfortunately griefers have been ruining my enjoyment of these new Free Mode Events.

Yes it is. I tried it for the first time over the weekend, and I enjoyed it a lot more than Manhunt. 

 

Unfortunately I was in the lead when it glitched out and wouldn’t let me capture any more bounties. The game seemed to think I still had a captured bounty that I needed to turn in, but I didn’t, so I just had to sit and wait for the timer to run down as my lead evaporated.

sometimes you can’t even get the bounties, it doesn’t let you lasso them or kill them

Trade Route is the best free roam event in RDonline.  Good experience, the 18 goods are a great help, and it’s fun actually cooperating with other players for once.  I accept the invite every time.

My only complaint is that the difficulty doesn't ramp up in the later stages so there's really no risk involved in staying the whole way through. It's an EZ mode turkeyshoot but amusing and profitable...

Actually, the one time I managed to get in on the event I just got to stand around on the train. Every time I thought I could get a kill in fourteen other people took a shot. 

Finished it with a whole one kills, so basically I didn't even have to spring for bullets with this event.

Can anyone part a picture of what the spot a condor egg spawns looks like before they loot it?  I just played for thre first time and all I found eas a bunch if different vulture eggs.  It'd be helpful to know what we're actually looking for besides a plume...

This was me playing it for the first time last night, and winning $1,000 in less than 5 minutes. I’ll take it!

Salvage is a blast. The trick is to go well beyond the featured landmark and explore the surrounding ruins for more chests. And once you've exhausted those prospects you can just ride around rescuing other players from bandits.

If by 'rescue' you mean 'try and loot as many of the guys they just killed as possible before they do' then I'm right there with ya!

Just a heads up on the Condor Egg event. You can only have one in your inventory, so if you have one, sell it. I found it  in the last event an hour ago and wasn't able to pick it up. So much for hoarding.

I like the trader route, playing with other players vs npc is fun.

 

Unfortantly it have glitched twice for me, one time we all spawned far away from the train and everyone died. Second time it just finished before starting... So i have done it two times and got 4 invites total.
