Also unlocked bounty hunting, went off to do my first bounty and once I get there I have a prompt to find a "scouting position" but there's no sign, area or indication on the map. I get closer and see some enemies, I crouch but they still spot me, shooting starts, the bounty arrives and immediately flees, I try to give chase but I get sidetracked by 10 guys shooting at me, lose the bounty and fail the mission.

Is this how it's supposed to be? Do you have to use stealth? Because I am more of a guns-blazing type and really don't like stealth in this game especially

I usually just wait outside the camp until you see the bounty coming in, fire off a few shots at his buddies and they usually run away so you can just chase them down and ignore the camp completely.

OK got it, hopefully next ones will be more shooty-shooty from the start, I was a bit confused

Is it still true that you have to turn in bounties as late as possible to maximize the reward, as I've read on many websites? It sounds like a really bad mechanic... like punishing you for working quickly and efficiently

Yep! It's a mechanic solely meant to dissuade cheaters even though it doesn't make any sense at all otherwise..

My buddy and I managed to catch a 6-alive bounty quite efficiently and turned them in for a whopping maybe $70 which basically paid for a few lost bolas to catch all 6 without fleeing. It was a $$$ bounty.

Itís such a stupid system considering we pulled off arguably the hardest feat of the non legendary bounties and could have made more money by sitting around having a beer with them in the wagon.

I still need to build some 3rd Street Saints outfits. I was looking at doing so in single-player, but IIRC I ran out of properly obnoxious-purple options.

Didn't even try to play last night - luckily, I'd done just enough late Sunday to keep my streak going.

yeah same on RDR2 PC, 600mb patch yesterday

only patchnote I can find is "fixes and improvements to stability"

I logged in, went to my camp, and it wasn't there. Icon there, no cripps, no tables, no tents. Wonderful patch

(jokes aside, it would at least seem like it's faster to join sessions, and I don't get as many crashes / infinite loading / err_gfx_state as I was getting before the patch)

The answer is, mate, because I want to do you slowly. There has to be a bit of sport in this for all of us. In the psychological battle stakes, we are stripped down and ready to go.

Is the bug your dual wields just arent available? I did my first free roam event last night and this happened to me, so yes.

Buying an outlaw pass after you already hit club rank 100 is pretty great. Its just...a bunch of stuff for free.

You'd think at least they'd be nice enough to cut out the camp fees and relocation fees until they sorted everything out but nope, I just paid to relocate a camp that wouldn't spwan three times before giving up and then got hit with the camp fee and audibly laughed.

My friend asked me earlier "How are the races in the online mode?" "Constant." I replied "I'm always racing to get somewhere or do something before I get disconnected."

if the camp doesn't spawn you don't lose any money. I don't know why people keep saying this in this thread and on reddit. you only lose the money once your camp is down and then he picks it up.

If you try to spawn a camp and the set up camp option just switches from white to greyed out you didn't lose anything.

but yeah the camp and animal bug is annoying. the bugs didn't start for me till the moonshine update. I never had a problem finding animals to bring to crips but I can't even find birds in the sky now.


I'm sitting at 20 on all the professions so I just put the game down when it decides it doesn't want to work but I hate waiting for 45 min for my moonshine to be rdy for a delivery and I have to idle cuz there's no animals to kill.

Yay, new patch downloading!

...why isn't there an indicator for download progress? I seem to recall seeing that on previous patches. Only way I could check was just watching the icon on my taskbar slowly turn green.

Yay, new patch finished!

...why aren't there any animals other than birds? From my camp near the dreamcatcher tree in Heartlands, north to the farmhouse by the outflow? Nothing ground-based until I found two poor bison at that northern point. No rabbits/skunks/badgers/coyotes/foxes/hooved rats, only NPC-controlled horses. Even well-overstuffed servers would have *something*.

Yay, Moonshining didn't disconnect/eternal-load/otherwise fail! 1x ea revenooer-eradication/'shine-run/story mission. Plus an unrelated random whack-your-rivals encounter when heading to a bounty.

Did manage to scrape up two iguanas down south for the daily, but missed the trader-wagon distance one by like 150 feet or so. Still no wolves spotted or even heard.

Stupid RDO question: I have fish in my satchel, and sometimes packed on the horse. Is cooking them some level- or recipe-locked thing, or are they only good for sale?

Weird poo poo: (PC) has anyone had the game decide that wanting to dig up a box really meant you wanted to walk off in another direction with no way to stop or break out of the animation? Second time this has happened, and the only thing I could do was reconnect. Well, I could summon my hunting wagon and dismiss it, and call my horse, but no interactions with anything.

Almost forgot: got me a camp dawg the other day - Thori the Husky. Now if I can only get him to act like his namesake, with the murder and all...

Well I just found a treasure chest doing one of the rank reward maps, and it glitched while it opened up and I was unable to retrieve the contents of said chest, as they appeared to be in a state of quantum flux. Disappearing and reappearing at random and never giving me the option to claim my reward.

I love the deja vu animals. Had a white blip show up on the map, when I got closer it was a wolf on the ground dying. Mercy kill, get an arrowhead. Clone wolf pops up on map, walks right next to first wolf, lays down. Mercy kill, get an arrowhead.

This happened before with a white blipped dog. Led me to some treasure. Went back where I first saw him and it let me do the event again.

Sometimes clearing your cache helps with animals but you have to redo whatever changes you made in your settings. I miss the good ol days of finding animal trails in eagle eye and then tracking them down. That was so much easier than riding around in eagle eye, seeing flashing only to find out it's horses.

Itís so frustrating, because if animals spawned at the rate they do in SP (or during solo instances in MP) trading would be great because hunting is chill as hell. But it sucks roaming around for 2 minutes only to realize you live in a beastless world. I wish fish were viable for trader materials, thatíd be chill too.

Yeah. I've been doing single player again and it's wild just how much alive the world feels. Which is a both nice and a shame, as I really like how my character turned out and Online has cool quality of life poo poo that wouldn't be out of place at all in single player.

When you realize there's more cops than people in town, unpleasant.
