Was there a reward on the PS4 to give part of the recipe for the new trinket to increase pelt quality?

I booted up yesterday for the first time in ages and checked out Gus and noticed I already had the turquoise earrings, so all I needed was a set of buck antlers (and a pile of cash) to get it within like 15 minutes

If you already had any of the collector items needed for crafting in your inventory you don’t need to hunt them down. There’s also a collectors package you receive as part of the outlaw pass progression that has jewelry, arrowheads, coins, etc... in it, if you purchased the outlaw pass and leveled high enough you may have gotten it there.

Multiple collector bundles in the Outlaw Pass, actually. One level gives two of 'em.

There are so many animals now that I often get kill notifications riding at night, and from the sounds I'm pretty sure they're not birds.

You can get sets of every non-unique handgun - the boutique double-action and all the gunfighters' custom ones, one each.

Online, I think the only one you can't double is Lowrey's Serial-Killer Navy, that you have to grind via GTAO quest.

Sadly, you can't donate legendary animals and the sampled ones probably won't be worth a drat, seeing as they're all shot to pieces.

Paint it Black is an interesting ability. It's extremely helpful when you're learning the game and also in super high end, sweaty, open world PvP - but not quite as good in most other cases. Whereas Slow and Steady is harder to get the hang of initially, especially now that both you and your horse slow to a crawl when it's active, but is still amazing to have in almost any situation.

I almost always run Slow and Steady unless I'm trading explosive rounds with another posse, and certain edge cases where someone is abusing Slippery Bastard. Especially because it's so strong against most strategies low ranked players employ.

Are you playing Free Aim or Assisted? If you're on Free Aim, PiB is the only choice, unfortunately.

I play free aim. In your opinion, should I still use your suggestions only with PiB instead of SaS, or does this throw things out of whack?

I say you get a controller and play assisted aim. Seriously. It opens up the game SO MUCH MORE.

Free aim is ALL Paint it Black or a Sniper build. Nothing else is viable.

You can run whenever your dead eye is not active. You used to be able to ride horses unimpeded but they changed it a while ago so your horse comes to a complete standstill as well. You can usually mitigate it by accelerating your horse before engaging S&S, but it severely limits your mobility either way.

I haven't been hit with an explosive arrow with S&S active in a long time, but I've definitely tanked explosive rifle rounds before. That was many months ago before S&S was reworked, so it could be different now. Though if you're running Iron Lung and full on stamina I'd bet you'd be on the verge of death but still kicking. I've found it to be particularly helpful in openworld PvP simply because they either use another explosive rifle round on you or you drop to the ground and they're not able to hit you again before you get up and slam a tonic to recover.

One of yesterday's dailies wa "tackle non-player enemies", so I figured I'd wait for a hideout/moonshine mission, or just go start poo poo at Thieve's Landing, whatever. But first, I was sucking down collectibles... and hit the oil farm in Heartlands. Where there were a bunch of guards wandering around, but not showing as aggro'd enemies.

Well, until I played tackle-knockout-loot a few times.

And just as I finish and am ready to roll, blue dot approaches from the west. And some screaming woman goes running by. Who I can't target.

Sooo, just run around getting in her way until the bounty hunter player can catch up and take her down, howl a couple times, and watch them ride off while I hang around murdering the reinforcements.

Later, I discovered the guest list in moonshine shack. Invite most of the server, but finish out the drunken band set and fill out the role dailies before I can interact. Served up a bunch of booze to one play, who decided to ride along as I made a shine run, and they got into a big fight when I rolled the roadblock. Sorry, whoever you were, shoulda stayed with the wagon!

Fell into like four black bears, all tranked and harvested, and chasing eggs up at Aurora Basin I found a grizzly. Poison arrows seem to be instant, now, at least on griz and gators. (Dunno about Legendaries.)

So now I have an enormous sweltering pimp coat.

It's absolutely wild that they haven't done a bandit career in online yet. Right now there's straight up no reason to interact with NPCs or the law. Honestly its crazy to me that they dipped back into hunting with extra steps first.

I think it was probably a team wide effort of fixing animal spawns and rounding out interactions with animals before they moved forward. I just want to rob banks and kill a fuckload of pursuers doing it.

I'm in a part on Ch 3 where every time I go near my tent, Dutch is there, lollygagging in his own tent, and calls me twice, the 2nd one darker and lower than the first.

"Arthur--Arthur."

It's been months and I haven't taken the bait, yet.

All my daily and role challenges were comparatively easy yesterday (at least on paper), so I tried to do them all. Took longer than I imagined, mostly due to bounty challenges not registering. Finally, I had one challenge left, deliver a batch of moonshine with at least whole 18 bottles.

Two of the dailies are 3 wetland samples taken, and 3 donated predator skins turned in.

Lemoyne has ZERO wildlife today because of it. Because the game has always lowered spawn rates on daily targets and something hosed up super badly so it's absolutely zero.

My dailies were two desert samples and two river/forest samples. Do different people see different dailies?

VVVV EDIT: One of the scenarios I hate the most in games is hordes of bullet-sponge enemies that swarm from all sides. The first moonshiner story mission was nothing but that. I can't get headshots because I'm bad at videogames so I find it to be frustrating, as well as incredibly lazy game design.

I think we to some extent can have different dailies, yes. I recommend getting the ability card Paint it black and practice headshotting unsuspecting travelers first. That'll make you more comfortable using it against waves of NPCs.

If they could just fix the cheater problem, I could deal with the rest. As it is, most freeroam events are unplayable. Especially if they're PVP, but the cheaters like disrupting the cooperative ones as well.

and then there's loving up free roam in general. Random explosions, animal spawns, time of day changes. Little things that break the session and cause some NPCs (like Harriet) to not spawn.

It's too much.
