Native Americans Of RDR2 Online

Recommended Posts

Coxbox
Posted (edited)

Northern Cheyenne Tribe of the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, MontanaIroquois ConfederacyNavajo Nation, Arizona, New Mexico & UtahChickasaw Nation, OklahomaShawnee Tribe, Oklahoma

Image result for native american


 

Welcome to the Native American Thread a place to discuss playing as a Native in the land of RDR2 Online Post your idea and thoughts and anything you find interesting on here and i will try and update this OP regularly.  

 

 

Clothing and Appearance 

Spoiler

Clothing and Appearance can be a difficult thing to get right I tried to base my character off of images found online. This all depends on how traditional you would like to go, in later periods more European based clothing was used such as vests and shirts. 

 

Each tribe has different styles and culture:

"In warmer months, most Native American men wore little clothing, perhaps just some simple short-like coverings called a breechclout and leather shoes called moccasins. Women wore a little more, often covered by a full-length dress, but also frequently wearing nothing more than a skirt." 

"many men went shirtless throughout much of the year, only wearing cloaks when it got very cold. "

"When the Europeans arrived many of the American Indian tribes were forced into contact with each other. They began to see how others dressed and took the ideas that they liked. Soon many tribes began to dress more alike. Woven blankets, fringed buckskin tunics and leggings, and feather headdresses became popular among many tribes."


Here are some clothing examples: 
 

 

 

 

Weapons 

Spoiler


Each tribe used different weapons within combat, however by the late 19th century, many native tribes now had the use of rifles, shotguns and repeaters. I prefer to use a traditional style of weapon in the bow and tomahawk for fighting. Once the different arrow pamphlets are owned, you have an additional arsenal for fighting and hunting.      

Early Weapons:

Bow.
Tomahawk. 
Hatchet. 

 

Later Weapons:Repeaters.
Rifles. 
Revolvers.

Arrow Pamphlets 

Spoiler

If you are using the Bow as your main weapon in RDR2 online here are the different pamphlets you can purchase at the fence. You can now purchase some of the items need at Madam Nazar such as feathers and certain herbs. 

 

Small Game - Flight Feathers and Shotgun Shells, good for hunting birds and small game. 
Fire - Flight Feathers and Animal Fat. Great for destroying wagons and supplies. 

Dynamite - Flight Feathers and Dynamite. Easy to craft = instant death.

Poison -  Flight Feathers and Oleander Plant good damage against players, can be used to hunt large 3 star animals  

Tracking - Flight Feathers and Scent Glands. Does similar damaged to Small Game Arrows, used for tracking bounties, hardest arrow to craft requires hunting Skunks and Muskrats  

Ability Cards

Spoiler

Ability Cards 
This will eventually be a list of ability cards that complement being a native american character, feel free to post your ideas.  

 

Bow Warrior -  Generate Dead Eye so that you can use that PIB accuracy to destroy your enemies with arrows.  
fOOLA4o.pngNvKWifV.pngvCmK8BZ.pngqPhzXbq.png

 

Horse Warrior -  Take less damage on horseback while also doing more damage, only used by the most skillful native riders.
EWGCUkk.pngHhOrl70.pngf2D6TPk.pngqz2Ci8j.png

 

Hand To Hand Combat -  You are harder to hit and take less damage unarmed or sprinting, perfect for hand to hand combat .
mCt1RN7.pngsjrv9pl.pngyCyGOXZ.pngAFk5dyx.png

 

The Medicine Man - You regenerate health quicker and take less damage , using your powers to heal yourself or your tribe effectively. 

Cptf2ge.pngAFk5dyx.pngs2kX4Wc.png9Jgo0WR.png

 

The Scout - Provide support from distance with scoped weapons, while also allowing your tribe to deal more damage. 
hBykZfS.pngTcOnxZR.pngvCmK8BZ.pngEUnRLNT.png

Horses 

Spoiler

 

Horses 

Playing as a native character you may want to make sure you also have a horse that is fitting. When the Spanish left the North American Continent, they also left many breeds of horses, these where then bred and traded by many different tribes. According to Wikipedia:

"The American Indian Horse is defined by its breed registry as a horse that may carry the ancestry of the Spanish Barb, Arabian, Mustang, or "Foundation" Appaloosa. It is the descendant of horses originally brought to the Americas by the Spanish and obtained by Native American people."

 

Therefore if you have a native american character I have provided links to the catalogue

Mustang
Arabian
Appaloosa

Don't forget there are also horse masks in the outlaw pass.
 

 

Trading

Spoiler

Here are some of my tips on the trading role as a native:

  • The Hunting Wagon is not a must but does make things easier.
  • Only go for medium game like Pronghorn, Bucks, Big Horn Ram. This is because they yield the most materials and you only require a standard arrow for a 3 star kill. 
  • Only go hunting in areas that are less populated by players. I have noticed that many players travel to certain spots like Big Valley or The Heartlands, this equal less animal spawns.
  • Remember guns will scare off animals in the are, another reason to go somewhere quiet.
  • When you have filled materials and supplies, take your wagon and go fish for pike or other large fish you can store 5 in the wagon and one on your horse (dismiss the wagon first).
  • Always do a local sale, it is less aggro for only $100 less.  
  • Camp dogs are cool but i have not yet needed it.

What boots do you wear? I use to wear moccasins or go bare foot. But thought the bare foot thing was kinda demeaning. Got some brown boots now.

Traditionally moccasins are what Native Americans wore  either these STRAYHORN BOOTS or HIGHTOP MOCCASINS

Would be nice to have this instead of just boots but lets hope for more content in the future.

I typically wear the moccasins with most of my outfits but I sometimes wear the light brown gaiters to get a tucked in, similar look to moccasins without the bulkiness of the actual moccasins

I'm using the Pelt Half Chaps as boots, Lightfoot or black leather bandito pants, bare chested and the gauntlets primarily. Sadly have 2 handguns equipped, so can't do much to keep that as barren as possible.

I'm not making use of any tomahawks, except for pictures sometimes. Nor do I actively use any ability cards, besides 'The Unblinking Eye' for eagle eye purpose only.

 

When I use my bow, I do for hunting, or shooting a dynamite arrow up some idiot's ass.

They are cool too but annoyingly one of those limited time items.  

This is my attire at the moment

I bought 1 pair (the one on the photo) first and regretted to never have bought the black ones, after they were taken from the catalogue again. Last week people found a way to get them through looking them up via the URL the online catalogue uses and I was able to obtain the black ones too, before it got patched.

Of "all" the options we have for native (or somewhat towards the direction of) footwear, I find this option the best. The moccasin boots we get are hideous, imo and can't be covered with chaps either. 

I've been hoping on some good native american clothing for as long as the game is running. Some bone armor, feathered headdresses and so would be really welcome, as well as a teepee camp theme.

The pomaded shaved ponytail is the look I've been rocking since the update dropped. It's a pretty sweet warrior look and suits my character well

Interesting to see the 5 nations flag in the OP (the purple flag with the 4 squares). Considering the 5 nations (the settlers referred to them as the Iroquois) lived mainly in Eastern Canada, I assume it would be uncommon to see many of them in what the game refers to as the 'southern states'. BTW to anyone wondering the 5 nations are: Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca.

 

Personally I don't play a native character, but if I did they'd be Mohawk, as I live in Montreal, which is right in the middle of the Mohawk territory.

They were not placed there for accuracy just a selection of native flags, i might do some research tomorrow and find some correct flags.

My character is a Mohawk. I've always liked the Mohawk's ever since Assassins Creed 3 with Connor/Ratonhnhaké:ton

 

 

 

For my attire, I've gone with Bandito pants, a poncho and some moccasins. (Although this outfit is deemed too hot to wear in New Austin, not sure why..)

I also had this version a few weeks ago, but I switched it up for the newest additions

I may even make an alt-attire where he's bare chested too. For the camp or future property, I'm hoping they'll add a longhouse to reside in. But I don't think there was many longhouses in this area. More towards New York.

This has been my go-to outfit for quite a while, I just wish we had better moccasins. My character is Lakota and is based (loosely) off of the character Wind in His Hair from the movie Dances with Wolves, though his actor is Omaha not Lakota. I figured the Lakota tribe was a good model given the area the game encompasses, though I'm toying with the idea of modeling my character after the Shawnee instead, as the Shawnee were very prominent in the area where I live.

 



The area where I live is very rich in Native American history, which is why I chose to create a Native character. I live in Ohio, where Shawnee chief Tecumseh was from, so we learned a lot about him and the Shawnee in school. Every summer there is an outdoor drama that plays in the town amphitheater that portrays the life of Tecumseh, and it is nationally known. The drama is narrated (a recording) by Graham Greene, the Native American actor who played Kicking Bird in Dances with Wolves and coincidentally, also voices Rains Falls in single player. We also have a Native American festival in the spring called the Feast of the Flowering Moon where Natives from all over the country come to dance, sing, and sell their crafts.

I once met a native role playing dude. He probably was invested 100 % in this. Like it took over so much on his personality you came to wonder, is this guy nuts or really just into it ? Not a bad fella but a tad crazy. I mean if you have native blood running tru ya veins supposedly would you play damn fkn video games nowadays ? smh be real

I've chosen my character to be Comanche, since we have the Great Plains in the game already, which was their territory for long, before the settlers from abroad came in and decimated their numbers with foreign deceases, warfare and encroachment of Americans.

After accepting life in reservations, some returned during the 1890-1900's. 
Living of hunting and trading, trying to establish a life in the current world. 


My choice to play a native character is because every Joe and his uncle plays either a Disney cowboy or a hot redheaded chick character.

Agreed. No vested interest in playing as a Native American but appreciate the thoughtfulness of posts like this.

If you want to ride your horse bare back, do a supply run mission at your camp and fail it. There's a good chance the saddle will vanish from your horse. You will have access to your weapons, horse cargo too, but not to your outfits. Also, any mane and tale upgrades are gone for the time your horse is saddleless. Worth looking into for a more native look. Upgraded stats due to saddle and stirrups are untouched, as well as the name of your horse.

I don't know if you can select an active horse without a saddle. I had one without saddle once and wasn't able to select it from the user menu, after my other horses were killed.

I'll try tomorrow

I wish riding bareback was an option. I wouldn't even mind if riding bareback didn't have stats since I buy saddles for looks and not their stats. I have the Lumley McCelland saddle on all my horses because it's a stripped down look and is sort of similar to the kind of saddles I've seen Plains Indians use

If you started the trader role, do a supply mission and fail it. that's how I glitch off the saddle of my horse. Doesn't always work, though.

I dont have a native char really, but I play as a viking, since im from norway and this char looks like me irl. I dont rock the exact same beard tho.

 

But my char is similar to natives in most other aspects, in terms of clothes and weapons. I use bow and hatches/cleaver. And lightfoot pants and moccasins. Ive change both the vest and the pants to a bit darker shade after this pic was taken.
