Random NPCs standing in the middle of nowhere?

Recommended Posts

djb204

Ever since this Naturalist role DLC I’ve been coming across NPCs out in the middle of nowhere just standing there doing nothing. Sometimes they greet, sometimes they don’t. Has anyone else run into random NPCs in the middle of nowhere?

I haven't so far--might just be a bug or oversight?

 

Some NPC behavior has definitely changed though: I noticed that NPCs (lawmen) will now shoot at you through a window at a substantial distance, whereas before they had to be within 3-4 feet outside before they'd see you and start shooting.

 

Other people here on the forums have had NPCs using moonshine and dynamite against them for the first time, so treat NPCs like griefers--don't take any chances.

I didn't see any standing npcs but I saw quite a few wagons stuck in place.

I've seen NPC riders wandering randomly off the road across fields for a few months now.

Quite often I'd see a small wagon (like the small trader wagon) being left by it's NPC driver while he walks off across a field.

 

I have seen lone NPCs standing or sitting on a horse in odd spots the last couple of days, like at the side of a road as if frozen in place, but they're not actually frozen.

I see way more npcs doing something.

 

Like when I first got in, with this update, 4 or 5 npcs were fishing along a river. Maybe stuff like that was always there, but was toned down

because of broken animal spawns? No idea.

 

I also saw the obvious "Rival Collector' for the first time, after this update. 

 

As far as NPCS shooting/being smarter, I'm finding my ability cards for being more defensive "in cover" finally are meaningful ;) 

That seems to be the way to go, with poachers and such.

^^ Also (needs more testing to be sure) but it seems like the law has been toned down a bit in terms of ability to find you after committing a crime; at least for 'first-time-in-a-while' offenses.

 

I say that, as I actually managed to hide and lose a wanted level in St. Denis with about eight lawmen roaming around. Considering the location I was in they would previously have found me.

 

But getting a wanted level in St. Denis can still be off-the-charts absurd--commit a crime and hop on a train heading north, and the game spawns lawmen alongside the tracks halfway to Van Horn. 😠

Ran into a hunter yesterday who shushed me as he made his kill.

 

Today I ran into a guy hanging by his ankle from a tree.  Also, twin light brown grizzly bears tried to attack me at once.  Definitely more stuff going on out there.

^^ I had two grizzlies attack me at the same time maybe 6-8 months ago when I was riding west-ish of Wallace Station... but am I right in assuming the hunter and the guy hanging by his ankle didn't show up as white dots on your mini-map?

The hanging guy definitely was a fading in and out white dot. The hunter, I don't remember.

He had a pulsing white point-of-interest blip. Just a guy hanging by his ankle. I shot the rope and he gave me $10 and a piece of jewelry (the fence kind, not the collectible kind). There's also now a beggar in Saint Denis and Blackwater, whom you can give 25 cents for a little honor or rob for dishonor. I dunno if he has a chance to give info like in single player.

 

They definitely added some new little random world events.

 

NPCs just standing around doing nothing sounds like another player's mission, though.

Yesterday i came across a escaped prisoner from Siskia. I don't know if this is a bug or what but he was just standing in a field doing nothing. It was actually opposite Beecher's Hope.

^^ Actually, this brings up an interesting point--all of us are escaped prisoners from Sisika, yet (so far) Sisika has done nothing to try and hunt us down...

Yeah it is suprising that nobody has tried to look for us. The lawmen can't be bothered to go after us lol. Ironically the escaped prisoner was just down the road from Blackwater (The town where we got framed for murder).

There is quite of lot of new NPC dialog.

 

Been doing some Hideouts and the Trader delivery missions where you have to defend the buyers, I was kind of use to the insults they used to say but there a lot of new dialogue being said now. I swear one of them told they were going to hang me up in a tree but could have been my imagination, but there is definitely a lot more being said when they’re popping shots at you!
