They would because they suck. Harriets great. I unironically like Gus though. Straight up, "loving KILL EVERYTHING THAT MOVES AND TURN IT INTO A HAT" mood. Hed love monster hunter.

Although Naturalist is annoying I like Harriet. I laughed at how dirty and frazzled she is, and she cusses me out when I visit because of all the animals I've killed, but I rush up and hit the interact button and she still buys my stuff.

Considering how much youtube's algorithm tried to push videos of people torturing the suffragette in the early days of this game, I have no interest in knowing what the players think about any other female NPCs

Speaking of which, have they tweaked Bounty Hunter payouts at all? I haven't run one because the money per hour is laughably bad.

the worst part about bounty hunter are those bounties where you have to eagle vision follow a million false leads before you find the actual bounty

just wandering around the woods following a line on the grind for 10 minutes, absolute dogshit gameplay

honestly the problem I have with Harriet is shooting the animals with tranqs feels way more cruel and sad than just killing them. I can kill a million deer or foxes or coyotes no problem, one clean shot to the head, but riding along behind some poor coyote blasting it like 500 times with .22 rounds while it whimpers and cries then listening to it cry while you take her stupid loving sample triggered me so bad. how is this more humane than just putting them down?

changing up how the sedative works would help a lot because the amount of times you have to shoot even a small animal for it to go down is absurd

I haven't played it yet but that sounds miserable, yikes. You should be able to just send them gently to sleep with a dart and then write a report about how nice it was to pet them

I would much prefer if you could headshot any animal and put it to sleep as long as it's not aware of you. Would make the tonics a lot more appealing as well.

I noticed last night that the proper track now spawns a footprint texture on the ground. Not sure if it was always there though but I sure didn't remember that.

Yeah the tranq system really should've been arrow based, and a one and done deal for most animals. Maybe two arrows for gators, bears, elk, and moose. There's even the new bow Rockstar could've used to really encourage it! Shiny new toy yay!

Harriet drugged me after I killed one (1) animal, so that was cool.

But I got to shoot a bunch of dipshit fox hunters and that is extremely satisfying.

I killed and skinned a bear right in front of her tent and she didn't do anything besides scream at me while it happened. I went over to talk to her immediately after, fully expecting to be drugged and shut out for a bit and figuring I'd just get it over with, and she just said her line about how she'd heard I'd been behaving myself or whatever.

I really enjoy the character progression in online.

I like getting into scraps with large posses while playing solo. Coming out on top, and then retreating to the woods to cook up more tonics and pick more herbs...I just find really enjoyable. That said, I play on Xbox still just to avoid the mess that are PC public lobbies and I play with all VOIP off. I am waiting for meaningful co-op content though, because it's extremely lacking at the moment. Having a system like Dark Souls' guardian covenant would be fantastic. Just being able to avail myself to help players under level 40 or 50 who are getting repeatedly murdered by posses would keep me engaged for an extremely long time.

That said, if you don't enjoy player interactions of any kind, yeah Story mode is probably where it's at.

When possible I climb on top of a nearby structure or large rock before freeing any animals.

The one I did was titled "Fox", but it was a cougar caged up at Black Belle's shack. Murdered the poo poo out of everyone first, looted, climbed on the outhouse and released kitteh, then trank'd him for harvesting. One-stop shopping. :V

Hung around at the destroyed cabin behind Wallace Station trying to bait a grizzly, but no luck. Found one when riding away, magdumped him with sleepyjuice, harvested, then left. (gently caress reviving *that*.) I, uh, kinda didn't leave very quickly, and when hairball woke up, he woke up *cranky* and chased me across half the valley.

Still need the Snowy Egret plumes (gently caress you Rockstar, birb was ID'd as "Snowy" before I shot, don't give me a "Little" plume) and the Dane item. Did the one saddlebag for gold, but as far as I know it's cosmetic only. Might do the clothes for completionist, but I'm seeing videos of animal-head hats, like wolf and ram, so...

Outlaw Pass is chunking along steadily. Might even have it done this weekend.

For what it's worth, I have a Black Arabian and still prefer the Breton or Turkoman. I value my horse not bolting a mile away during a gunfight and not throwing me when I get within 100 feet of a wolf more than a little bit more speed or maneuverability.

It's very good, but I value the hidden bravery stat far more than anything else.

The Turkoman and Missouri Fox Trotter are both top tier horses that don't require any role ranks, have better bravery, and aren't weirdly tiny.

Arabians are overrated imo

e: though my Turkoman just managed to glitch through the world and lose the legendary elk pelt I was transporting so your mileage may vary

I like all my horses equally. Which is to say I dislike all of them, but none stands out as better or worse than the others. At this point I think only the very cheap horses with very low stamina and health are bad and I really wish there was a better Shire I could spend gold on

Did the same thing at that location with a grey wolf. Photos of sedated animals don't count in the Big Book of Animals I've Killed so I moved off a bit and let it wake up on its own so I could take its picture... it began eating one of the poacher corpses when it woke up.
