Red Dead Redemption 2 appears to be a shocking precise cowboy simulator, right down to some surviving mechanics like hunting and dressing properly. All the true front men's needs are a horse and a credible rifle, and Rockstar has turned off the weapon selection in the upcoming game.
According to the official website, RDR2 has more than 50 weapons, each with customization options and ammo types to determine statistics such as accuracy, range and damage. The weapons will level up the more you use them, and they must be kept oiled and cleaned to prevent degradation. You can customize with barrels, grips, sights and performance goals, along with visual blossoms like choosing your metals, woods, varnishes and engravings.
The visual elements such as metals and engravings can be customized per component of your gun and you can choose a different engraving on the trigger protection, the barrel and the frame for a truly unique look. Ammotypes like split point, high speed and explosive can be used in a clamp for tougher enemies. A good holster will help prevent the breakdown of the weapon, while undeveloped holsters allow you to double your weapons. Finally, the horse's salm will save your weapons so you have to choose which weapons to wear when you tie your horse.
Rockstar cites a handful of examples of how different weapons can handle different situations. Bolt-Action Rifle is best for long range combat against multiple goals, while Pump-Action Shotgun is best suited for close combat against cordial wildlife. A double-acting turret works well if you take pictures from the horseback, while a Sawed-Off shotgun is better if you are limited to one hand while the other wears a lantern. The heat intake is best for little spill since it will minimize skin and meat damage. And Springfield Rifle is ideal for one-to-one confrontations in the middle class. And there are just a few examples.
The new Dead-Eye system helps you make the most of each shot and evolves to become more powerful during the game. It will let you automatically select goals, place multiple images of the same enemy manually, slow down slow motion or find weak spots on enemies.
Red Dead Redemption 2 hits October 26th. Check out some of the most surprising details we know about so far while we wait to explore the old west.
