Two weeks of Red Dead Online beta was enough to form their own opinion about the game and make only real cowboys stay online. If you are one of them and are still downloading with friends on the faithful "Roach" on the prairie, or are just planning to join the multiplayer adventures in the near future, then we have prepared for you a Red Dead Online guide, which will tell you about 10 unexpected secrets and life hacks.
1. How to complete a storyline campaign 100%
Without a doubt, Story Missions are the best there is in Red Dead Online. The developers always come up with creativity, delight with the set cutscenes and unusual conditions for completing the task. Therefore, it is easy to get upset when you have completed all the story quests, they did not seem to be enough, and besides that, the statistics also have an annoying inscription that the story was completed by only 75 percent.
Stop putting up with it! If you notice that the progress mark in the statistics has not reached the maximum value, but there are no more icons for story missions on the map, then feel free to lower or raise your honor level. As it turned out, the company has prepared 4 unique missions that open only to players with a good or negative reputation.
2. New animations for emotions
Another secret in our guide to Red Dead Redemption 2 Online will give you more animations to interact with other players. You probably know very well that if you aim at an oncoming traveler and press the "R1" key, then four variants of emotions will appear. The secret is that if you press the emotion key not once, but twice, the animation will change.
3. Free recovery of stamina and lives
In Red Dead Online, elements of survival have migrated from single player, which can sometimes be quite annoying. At least as long as you have a low level, provisions are minimal, and the main character gets tired at the speed of a smoker with thirty years of experience. Here is a little life hack for you - you can restore your stamina and health reserves without any expenses just by resting for one minute near the campfire.
4. How to quickly skin an animal
We must admit that we are both frightened and impressed by the meticulousness with which the developers approached the visual demonstration of animal refreshment. But at the same time, looking for the hundredth time at a five-second skinning animation becomes tiresome even in story mode. And in Red Dead Online, it's so deadly in general, because at any second a generous portion of lead from other players can fly into you. Therefore, to speed up the process several times, just place your horse close to the animal's carcass and enjoy almost instant animation.
5. Search horse saddlebags
As with the previous secret, this life hack can be used both in single player mode and in Red Dead Online. The easiest way to get hold of valuable tonics, which cost a fortune, is to search the saddlebags of other people's horses. At the same time, no one bothers to steal loot from another player's horse. Just be careful: approach the animal slowly, without sudden movements, do not scare the horse away and try to pet it first, otherwise, when you try to touch the bag, you will get an aimed hoof hit between the eyes.
6. Safe fishing
Sometimes you really want to escape from the hustle and bustle, robberies and endless horseback riding. Stop near a picturesque reservoir, get a fishing rod and just go fishing. Only you, serene nature and fishing ... But not destiny, because a lonely fisherman is always an excellent target and "bait" for other players who are still impossible to notice, because when the bait is thrown, the minimap disappears. To solve the problem and always be aware of the closest enemies, we recommend downloading the Red Dead Redemption 2 mobile application to your smartphone. After authorization in the application, you can see the nearest gamers on the global map on your smartphone screen.
7. Truce as a panacea for aggressive players
Another secret in our Red Dead Online guide will show you how to calm down violent players who decide that wasting time hunting your character is the most fun activity on Earth. If the same player kills you three times, then you can turn on the truce mode for 10 minutes. At this moment, the adversary will at least throw dynamite at your feet - you will not feel the damage, and ten minutes is usually enough for the bully to lose interest. But if there are particularly persistent players who terrorize you for ten minutes even after the announcement of the truce, you can always re-enter the server from the main menu.
8. Free Fast Travel
By the way, the ability to re-enter the server at any time can be used not only to get rid of the pursuers, but also to move around the game world for free. Through the menu you can go to five different regions on the map, which will be extremely useful when the route is not close to the nearest fast travel point, and there is no extra money in your pocket to use the services of carriers.
9. How to open access to new hairstyles
You may have noticed that when you go to the hairdresser in Red Dead Online it is impossible to select some hairstyles? No matter what you do, no matter how many gold bars and dollars are not farmed, they are still inaccessible. As it turned out, the secret is quite simple - use lipstick before going to the hairdresser and the range of available hairstyles will noticeably expand.
10. Instant release from the lasso grip
The final secret in the Red Dead Online guide will show you how to free your character from the lasso in a second. To crank the operation, do the following: immediately after the lasso has been thrown at you, open the weapon menu and select a knife - the rope is untied instantly, checked repeatedly. And what can we say about the angry screams of another player when he repeatedly unsuccessfully tries to catch you with the lasso - this moment is priceless.
