The release of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC was not without a number of technical problems, but a few months after the release, we can summarize that as a result, PC gamers received the best version of the Western from Rockstar. And we are talking not only about more perfect graphics, but also mods that allow you to remove minor mistakes of developers at your own discretion and add new features to the gameplay. Read more about the best mods for Red Dead Redemption 2, in our opinion, read the article below.
Ped Damage Overhaul
Let's start right away with the trump cards. Ped Damage Overhaul can be a real joy for those cowboys who get frustrated by the overly simplicity of gunfights, which is especially striking when completing story missions. The mod offers more than a dozen settings that will allow you to change the health stock of NPCs and slightly adjust their behavior when injured. For example, opponents bleed out longer, get a chance to survive in a fire, and react more realistically to leg wounds. Overall, the creator of the RDR 2 modification is convinced that Ped Damage Overhaul should add more tactical depth to gunfights.
Alpha and Omega among the mods for RDR 2, which solves several gameplay functions at once. After installing Scripthook, access to a menu opens that allows you to turn on the free camera mode to teleport to the desired location in a couple of clicks, call an NPC, transport, change the time of day, weather or model of the main character at your discretion. However, all this is really nonsense compared to the main ability of Scripthook - to play as a cat, brown bear or any other animal, turning RDR 2 into a typical program with National Geographic.
Custom Time Scale
Rockstar programmers and artists deserve the warmest compliments for phenomenal work on weather effects and lighting at any time of the day. But besides them, there are still a couple of not the most pleasant words that I would like to address to someone who has thought of making the in-game time course too fleeting. Perhaps you will understand me if you remember thunderstorms, which can sometimes last for several seconds. To solve this problem, we present another mod for Red Dead Redemption 2 - Custom Time Scale, which allows you to adjust the speed of in-game time. However, please note that it does not work inside missions.
RDR2 Photorealistic Reshade
When you intend to install any Reshade or ENB mod, you should always think three times before making a decision, and then think again. Often, such modifications, in an attempt to give the image realism or to make the picture more "juicy", twist the contrast to the maximum, creating a filter with just ripped-out colors. But RDR2 Photorealistic Reshade does not suffer from such excesses, and due to the slightly more contrasting black and white colors, the image really becomes a little more realistic.
The open world of Red Dead Redemption 2 offers enough opportunities to feel like a real Rogue of the Wild West. Except for one "but": impossibility to rob banks. Of course, the story campaign offers a few staged heists, but if you want to rob banks at any time you have, then we highly recommend this RDR 2 mod. Once installed, you can rob banks in Valentine, Rhodes and St. Denis.
A rather unusual mod that will be able to fully test your fighting skills in RDR 2. When activated, the mod, the main character moves to the cemetery in Saint Denis and becomes a participant in the survival game. You take up a combat position, if you wish, you can place fences, useful objects and explosives on the level, and then turn on the trigger and let endlessly replenishing crowds of opponents into the cemetery. You will not be able to survive, do not even try, but at the end of the battle, the modification will calculate the number of enemies killed and allow you to compare statistics with other players.
Survive the Island
Another variation on the theme of survival, but with an emphasis on stealth instead of active combat. After activating Survive the Island, the player moves to the island with a tomahawk and lasso, pursuing only two goals: to get to the nearest island and collect useful items hidden in the level to try to defeat the bear. It will not be superfluous to try not to die yourself, but here is how it will turn out.
Red Dead Redemption 2 does not tolerate haste, which is expressed not only in a number of gameplay mechanics, but also in the device of an open world, in which you can lose the lion's share of content when moving from one chapter to another. If you also encountered this and want to jump into the chapter you need or just want to skip the prologue, we suggest paying attention to one of the best mods for RDR 2, which allows you to create and edit game saves. Detailed customization of the starting save conditions is the main feature of the modification.
A user with the nickname Gopro_2027 created perhaps the strangest mod for the game, turning Red Dead Redemption 2 into a field for his own crazy experiments. In order not to be unfounded, we will give several modification options: levitate on a UFO, create a gravitational funnel around us that attracts characters, shooting by animals and NPCs, bomb attacks from heaven, calling a zombie apocalypse, a teleportation weapon and dozens of other options of varying degrees of adequacy. p>
Let's finish our selection of the best mods for Red Dead Redemption 2 with a really useful innovation that fits perfectly into the game's mechanics. It's about adding a small hunting cart for storing hides. Now there is no need to fear the loss of items after death - if you rammed them into the cart, they will remain intact and safe in it. As a nice bonus - the ability to customize the look of the cart. Not Need for Speed, but not bad either.
