I go fishing with my gun because I don't have a fishing rod 

And I sometimes hogtie npc's and think we are going on an adventure, 

You know the usual stuff.

lol You're not the only one. 8-D I'm continually coming up with new ways to kill, harass, evade, and wreak vengeance on lawmen, the St. Denis trumpet player, and NPCs in general across the map.

 

BTW, I have a fishing rod, but rarely fish with it... makes a nice spawn tool though. "Fishing" guns FTW.

Go to one specific place, the abandoned slaughter house near Saint Denis, to test weapons. In my mind, the old yard with all the corpses is out of the way enough to test weapons without worrying people.

Seven months for an update that takes a week to complete at leisurely pace and adds little to the game. It's not a case of "Well don't rush it", that was me playing leisurely.

Even the Pass only took me 6 days while actively trying to go slow, yet trying to rank up the Naturalist to get away from stupid Harriet.

Just normal collecting ranks up the pass quickly.

It's not even like the Naturalist Role was fun, it's a soulless grind until level 5 and then just spamming Legendary Animal sightings until its done. There is no reason not to play it like that because it gives you so much XP vs the other ways.

 

Legendary Animals being locked behind Harriet just shows that R* knew people would get tired of her so they force a reason to go back and get sprayed.

 

For the wait they should have put two roles, Big Game Hunter and Naturalist with two distinct Roles and unlock trees

This.

 

It was either laziness or the update was rushed out. Gus - Big Game Hunter and Harriet - Naturalist is how the update should have been.

Hunting should have definitely been an alternate option for players, but R* knew well enough that's the choice most everyone would make.

I haven't seen Harriet for almost 2 weeks.

 

I pick prairie poppies and then buy some from Madam to craft sedative rounds, which I only use when required by dailies.

 

I liked Harriet's character, and her model is very well done, but the role is too limited and getting sprayed and waiting out another cooldown is not something I choose to do. Ever.

 

I've found 2 legendary animals, both randomly. The benefits of the poacher missions were far too little for the amount of work needed.

I had hoped that they'd be a good source of diversion and looting opportunities like moonshine missions, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

It could be both, they had the perfect chance to really surprise people and make up for the wait by giving us a bumper two Roles instead of the usual one. Gus even has lines like Harriet for Legendary Animals, so I do think hunting (vs sedating) missions could have been taken from him at one point.

That is how I should have been.

Naturalist could have had stuff like the ability to calm aggressive animals, the Mercy Kill, the ability to buy vials of Harriet's happy gas that act like the Toxic Moonshine but instead cause NPC's to cough and flee the cloud rather than kill and choke them and collect more plants when harvesting.

 

BGH could have had the ability to make and drop caltrops that disable but dont kill horses following you, make new forms of poisoned arrows like Frenzy that cause animals and NPC's to attack anything around them.

 

Stuff to add to the Camp, one for each Role. Planter boxes that let you plant and grow your own plants. You can own upto three of them and anything you can harvest you can plant, this would be for Naturalist while BGH gets Snares/Bear Traps/cages etc that let you catch animals. When you return you have a chance of it being full with Cripps making a comment.

Thats what makes me think that Legendary Animal missions were originally supposed to be Gus' and Poacher missions were Harriet's.

No, it was a white Kladruber I saw. It's a nice name though and it's cool that your horse is named after your cat.

 

 

That's still pretty creative. I named my horses after 2 of my favorite defunct car companies. My black rabicano Tennessee Walker is named Hudson after Hudson Motors and my leopard blanket Appaloosa is named Graham after Graham-Paige.

If it was on PS4 it might've been me & my Kladruber Luna

It’s cool to see that people actually put thought into their horse’s names.

 

 

On the other hand, it's a pain in the ass if you've committed to having era-appropriate names for all your horses - I named my starting Morgan "Caramel" (because palomino = light brown with white, which reminded me of salt caramel), only to then panic because I wasn't entirely sure that caramel was a thing back in 1890s America (as it happens, caramels would have been trendy at the time, so I got lucky with that one!).

 

Most other things work well enough with Victorian-y names - so anything vaguely evocative of class and status ("Duchess" for my Thoroughbred), or powerful-sounding names from history/mythology for workhorses (hence my Shire "Samson" - and for my new Breton, something more French: "Charlemagne").

 

The real kicker was for my Turkoman - the only historical, named example I could find was called "Merv", named after the ancient city what is now Turkmenistan. So I figured I'd have to find another ancient Parthian city in present-day Turkmenistan - and it'd have to be one that was discovered (or at least recorded) before 1890 (because folks in RDO wouldn't exactly know about something excavated in the 1970s, would they? ;)). Fortunately, I found one that fit the bill, as well as sounding like a realistic name for something: "Nisa".

 

 

...yes, I may have put in waaay too much thought and effort into all this! :p

Everytime I buy a new videogame, I will buy my food roleplay themed...

 

 

I bought FIFA --> Bratwurst, Mustard and Beer (typical stadium food in germany)

I bought Battlefield 1 --> Canned Beef, dry bread, rations and other typical WW1 front food

 

With RDR2 (and even part 1 back in the days) we  made a whole western themd day like no shower, dry beef, beans in pans and other typical western food.

I really hope we get a cutscene later of us arriving back to camp to see Cripps playing with the dog and making kissy faces at it only to see us and try to hide it and act all gruff and tough.

That’s not a bad thing lol. It just means you’re meticulous.

 

My latest horse, McQueen, is a blue roan Nokota. I named him after the actor, Steve McQueen, who was an avid racer and automotive enthusiast. Seeing how Nokotas are classed as race horses, I thought it sounded fitting.

And yet it would require much explaining, most people would just reference either:

or perhaps: (even though it's spelled differently)

220px-LGM-118A_Peacekeeper_MIRV.jpg

 

 

I named one of mine Jaguar XKE ('cause it's a Norfolk Roadster),

ca0815-219851_1@2x.jpg?1438810520000

 

...saw another horse named Pontius and wanted to name a horse Pontiac, and another Buick.

This goes back to an El Mundo del Lundo episode where they parodied an old western movie using car sounds for all the horses...I have a messed up sense of humor.

I only visit camp to cook stew and pet the dog. Golden cores are nice! As for trader, it's only worth leveling to get the wagon, if you hunt a lot. Too much work for not enough reward; moonshining is much more lucrative & less demanding. I make a bunch more from the butcher, in fact, than at the trader table.

^^ Best reason for R* to avoid a "northward" map expansion if it meant snow like Colter; only a handful of players would ever spend much time there.

I spend more time these days loading into the game and dressing my character up than I do playing. The moment I realise I have a huge ride across the map to pick up the Bounty only to be paid a pittance after waiting for ten minutes I turn the game off.

I just change sessions when I get those ones.
