Hackers are out in force today. Dude was blowing people up in Blackwater and later I was blowing up repeatedly until like 5 respawns. Of course, when I was able to spawn my horse was dead and I was promptly eaten by a bear. I decided to log off at that point.

The blowing up instantly after respawn I havenít seen before.

Someone did that infinite blow up thing to me in Van Horn today (PC).

Script kiddies getting their jollies out on their last weekend before going back to school. It will hopefully settle down afterwards as there weren't a lot of them prior to the holidays.

Reposting for the top of a new page: we added new roles and channels for console players on the Discord now since you all seem kind of lonely. Please feel free to come join us. I post the general dailies and Nazar's location every day, and I recently wrote up a starter guide for new players to the online scene. https://discord.gg/gvtTTnw

As a bonus, when I log on again I'm sure I'll have to bay $5 to get my large camp back, because of course.

Also, this is totally anecdotal but earlier today I had the no animal spawn thing going on. When this was happening there were 24 people in the lobby. As soon as animal spawns returned to semi-normal I looked again and there were only 21. Not much later they disappeared again and the lobby was back to 24. Totally anecdotal but others have also noticed animal spawns tied to player count.

Me and a buddy completed a 6 person bounty with all alive and captured.

It still wasnít worth a ton of money and we probably came out even with the cost of lost bolas but it was worth it twice over in feeling like a bad rear end riding a full bounty wagon into town.

I really should get to organizing a poker night or some goofy goon events. The most fun I have with my few buddies is just goofy stuff like dynamite arrow sniper wars or fisticuffs too close to a cliff edge and stuff. Random murder with your buddies is a lot more fun than perfect-accuracy jerk with a rolling block killing you from 200 yards until you parley.

It does get expensive in lost throwing weapons, though, but nailing someone with a hammer never gets old.

Yeah, this happened to me a few days ago. Started the session and immediately had flaming logs fall on my head in the middle of the desert. Got killed a few times before I managed to get into defensive mode and jump into a story mission.

Surprisingly I haven't had too many issues seeing these guys in Free Roam events, but one dude had god mode on in Fool's Gold and had a hilarious 150~ points with 0 deaths.

I screenshotted it but Rockstar has the most obtuse method of reporting this poo poo so I didn't even bother.

GTAV: installed

GTAO: connected

San Andreas Slasher: buttstroked with a PDW and executed while unconcious

Navy Revolver: Oh won't you take me, to Murdertown

RDO: connected

Lowry's Revolver: executed a running pronghorn from horseback

Gotta get offhand unlocked, as I need a second one for Josey Wales reasons.

Also bought a coat, at ridiculous price, just in time to not really need it for a while I expect.

Also snagged a Kladruber who I now realize I need to rename Hansgruber.

(If you were the player dragging a carcass behind your horse last night: sorry, it was on cinematic mode autopilot, please contact the Dragic Horse Company regarding reimbursement for this tragic yet unforseeable accident.)

Youíre definitely limited by your progress bars yeah. Make sure you do resupply missions instead of purchasing, if you arenít already; they give a good chunk of xp.

Join delivery runs by other players and invite them with you on your resupply runs. If you get resupply runs where you have to steal bags of supplies, you get 500xp for every one that is turned in, up to 2000xp.

Get up, chief. We're just gettin' started.



I thought you get the same amount of trader XP per delivery run regardless of how many goods you're actually selling so running delivery missions as soon as it allows you to will rank up that role fast. Like if you're in it for the XP, getting a bigger wagon and waiting for it to fill all the way up is counterproductive.

This is true but it actually really makes the leveling feel like a grind. Like I said, make judicial use of posses. You can get a bunch of XP going on deliveries with other people too.

Sometimes you may see random open posses. You can try joining and seeing if they're doing a run. I think there's reddit threads where people can get social names so they can connect. Otherwise, yeah, hop on Discord. PC folks tend to run several a day.

As far as I know, the only 'unique' thing is that serial killer revolver. Which to be honest is ugly as gently caress. Everything else is stuff you can just get normally, such as the Double Action Revolver and the Collector Role.

Large wagons give considerably more XP, but it's probably quicker to do more small deliveries.

Looks like there used to be some cross promotion stuff for weapon skins but I don't know if they're still going on. If hackers are that bad today I might just get my serial killer revolver out of GTAO (though I imagine it'd be worse there). https://www.gtaboom.com/new-gta-5-rdr2-cross-promotion/

Bounty Hunter levels unlock the gun spinning tricks.

Full collection turn-ins is the fastest way to level up.

I have to contend with constant disconnects if I'm using my normal wireless router so I play on a mobile hotspot. I haven't tried it but some people have said directly connecting to the router via Ethernet cable has solved those problems for them.
