Yeah but I figured you know, videogame. It takes a violent, stupid, unnaturally resilient psychopath to try and kill someone with a 2 Bore and that's exactly what we're playing lol.

also not sure if anyone mentioned it but I bet/hope that the rifle the naturalist is carrying is something like the double-deuce

what an absolute motherfucker of a gun

e: looked at the preview again, the stock is all wrong to be the DD, but it could potentially be a much more common and still insane 4 bore

The ammo in the bandolier certainly looks stout

Double rifles were popular with big game hunters. One shot to kill the rhino, second shot if you miss and oh poo poo now you're being charged by a rhino. At least, that was the logic.

Well, maybe not for rhino hunting. You'd want a cannon for that probably.

All I know is that I'm ready for RDO to disappoint me again.

I'm just waiting for a half decent co-op mode I can sink time and money into. Anything remotely close to Payday and I'd probably do nothing else.

I play on Xbox only because I deal enough with suspicious nonsense in the other PC games I play. Had a good session earlier. Rode to Mount Hagen for the daily. Nothing happened along the way. Found a ring and logged out. Really hoping they add some meaningful content. I almost miss getting attacked by huge posses of idiots like I constantly did shortly after release.

I managed to wrap up all the collections that were close to completion, and now have over $30 in gold and $4k in RDO bucks. There's still a few things I'd like to buy, like the hunting wagon, outfits, etc. but with the new content coming I'll hold off a while.

Stuff like that goes on sale periodically, so holding off would be a good idea.

I fended off a posse of 7 exactly one time. Did pretty well for myself considering I was 1v7 - only died a handful of times. Since then I usually ran across posses of 2 or 3 causing trouble, who are never much of an issue unless they spam explosive ammo. I'm honestly hoping I find more turds that need wranglin' and wrastlin' once the update hits.

Most of the hacks are annoying, but the only one that I truly hate is the money-drain hack which drains you $1 a second by the hacker speeding up the counter for the camp fee. I don't like it because it makes me feel like I can't AFK.

Patch notes do, but feature drops usually come with a preview a few days in advance to outline the upcoming content.

I'd read it less as ominous and more as confirmation that they left three interns on RDO and put the rest on GTA6 or whatever. Half-expecting instanced hunting of cougar reskins or something equally frankensteined from existing code.

I haven't played in months, waiting for something new to drop, and since hunting / finding animals has always been very fun for me I guess the naturalist role will be my jam. Also, Outlaw Pass 3,

The basic "go here and do X" mission for naturalist is to shoot a bunch of poachers and free animals by shooting locks on a cage. First time I did it I didnt have the varmint rifle equipped so no sedative ammo, I shot the lock and ran inside a cabin figuring wolves probably cant come inside? Dunno how I never experienced that before but welp its not true they'll come right in.

Tranq ammo in the varmint rifle is strange, figured shooting a beaver in the head with it would be a pretty quick nap time, but I had to keep shooting a bunch. Freed a wolf at a poacher camp and half expected it to slink away but instead it attacked me, so welp honor go down I guess.

Naturalist update is kinda weird.

At least animals and camps work now, didn't have a single disconnect. My private lobby firewall trick doesn't work anymore though, disconnected inside of a minute.
