Red Dead Redemption 2 just got released, it’s a excellent game with some complicated system in it, in order to help you start you journey to the west fast, here are 10 tips that could help you live your outlaw life
1. Always Carry a horse revival kit
In Red Dead Redemption 2 your horse will gone if it dies, keep your favorate horse away from shots is the best strategy to avoid this situation, still you need to be prepared, make sure you’ve always got a horse revival kit in your pocket. These massive injections will bring your valiant steed back from the brink of death and can be purchased from any stable for $9.50.
2. Keep your horse in whistling range
Your horse won’t just teleport to you like other games, try not to wander away from your horse between missions if you can help it. It also pays to bond with your mount. The higher your horse bonding level, the further away you can whistle for it.
3. Use Dead Eye for hunting
Dead Eye will also highlight animals vitals, and nailing a shot to the heart or neck will usually ned in an instant, clean kill if you’re using the right caliber of ammo. The hunting will just be much easier.
4. Turn on ‘Toggle to Run’
Truth me, you don’t wanna just pressing on that button, select this option from the main controls menu to save yourself some effort by switching to a system where you only have to tap A/X once, rather than constantly hold it down.
5. Bonding with your steed to unlock secret moves
The more you bond with your mount the more abilities you can unlock for it. At level two bonding, your horse will rear in classic Wild West style by holding down RB/R1 and tapping X/Square. At level three, the hairy companion can perform what’s essentially a horsey handbrake turn when you press RB/R1 and A/X while moving. Once you reach the maximum level four bond, your horse will strafe from side to side if you hold down B/Square mid-gallop – an handy manoeuvre for when you’re riding through dense forest and want to quickly steer round clumps of trees.
6. Use cinematic mode to travel
Set a waypoint and enter into cinematic mode to make your horse ride to your destination, you won’t need to press anything, but we’d advise you don’t step away from your console since bounty hunters or rival gangs attack Arthur mid-journey.
7. play poker at camp first
Learn to play cards back at Dutch’s camp so you don’t risk losing your hard-earned while you’re still learning the poker ropes. The maximum bet while playing your gang pals is a measly dollar; all you can lose in these games is a few cents, but playing here is useful for teaching the poker basics before you hit the high roller tables out in the world. Handily, there’s also a complete explanation of poker rules tucked away in the help section of the pause menu.
8. You can pay off bounties at post office
It’s hard to travel across the Frontier in peace with a bounty on your head, if you wanna ensure bounty hunters and other lawmen don’t keep chasing Arthur every time he has a bounty hanging over him, visit the post office to pay off these criminal charges
9. Use the ledger to upgrade your camp
The ledger isn’t just to a place to spy on how much gang members have been contributing to camp life. You can also use this book to upgrade your camp’s medical, ammo, and food stalls. Upgrade these, and not only will Arthur be able to fill his pockets with more bullets and snacks before heading out on missions, but camp morale will also improve.
10. Read Arthur’s journal
Hold left on the D-pad for an abridged version of the story so far, told from Arthur’s perspective. It even fills in story gaps on Morgan’s life shortly before the game begins. There is alot of back stoies, so I’m not going to spoil them to you, check it out yourself.
I hope those tips can help you playing the game, have fun with Red Dead Redemption 2!
