    23 days ago - By VG 247

    Red Dead Redemption 2 Dead Eye tips - how to level up Dead Eye, auto target, critical shots, more

    23 days ago - By VG 247

    Red Dead Redemption 2's Dead Eye mode lets you slow down time and pick off enemies with headshots and precise targeting - but it takes some upgrading and getting used to.
    Dead Eye is best used in the heat of battle when you're facing off against multiple foes, or when you're on horseback and need to take down tenacious lawmen or random individual you don't like the look of.
    To use Dead Eye, just click down on the right analogue stick while you're aiming - this will slow down time and allow you to target enemies with a red X. Depending on what stage of Dead Eye you've unlocked, you can tag...

    Red Dead Redemption 2: how to upgrade the bow and arrows

    23 days ago - By VG 247

    There's only one bow in Red Dead Redemption 2 and it's one of the most effective weapons available.
    It might seem a bit odd that in a game that features multiple pistols, revolvers and a backpack full of hatchets and knives, that's there's only one bow to use. But the Longarm Back Bow is one of the most versatile weapons in the game, whether it's used for hunting animals or causing absolute chaos against multiple enemies.
    Unlike most weapons in Red Dead Redemption 2, you can't upgrade the bow, but you can upgrade your arrows , which really takes it to the next level.

    To get the Stone Hatchet in Red Dead Redemption 2 you'll have to be a regular GTA Online player.
    Much like the treasure hunt which unlocks the Double-Action Revolver for use in GTA Online and Red Dead Redemption 2 , the Stone Hatchet is only available by playing GTA Online .
    The bounty is live in GTA Online, and here's how you can earn the Stone Hatchet for yourself.

    If you're looking to start Red Dead Redemption 2 with a snazzy new pistol, you can unlock the Double-Action Revolver.
    The catch here is that you have to unlock the Double-Action Revolver by playing GTA Online. Once you unlock it in Los Santos, it becomes available to use in Red Dead Redemption 2.

    There are loads of strange and unique items to be found in Red Dead Redemption 2, including animal skulls you can wear as masks.
    In this guide, we're going to tell you how to get the feather-topped Morion Helmet and the Pagan Ram Skull Mask .
    For the Morion Helmet , you need to find the frozen settler. His rigid corpse can be found at the top of Mount Hagen, in the Northwest of the map.

    It wouldn't be the Wild West without some spectacular gunplay and shiny new weapons.
    There are 59 weapons to be found and used in Red Dead Redemption 2 - some more easily unlocked than others.
    They roughly fall into three categories, which include standard weapons you are given during the story or that can be bought from a Gunsmith in any major town. You can also find Rare versions of these standard weapons throughout the story campaign and world.

    It seems like there are more melee weapons hidden around the wild west than revolvers.
    One of the coolest weapons we've found in Red Dead Redemption 2 is the Broken Pirate Sword. It's handy in a fight and makes a change from all those clunky shotguns.
    It's almost as cool as the Viking axe that you can find elsewhere on the map, but not quite as cool as the ram skull mask you can wear.
    To find the Broken Pirate Sword you'll want to head to Saint Denis. Look out from the long train bridge to the southwest towards a small cluster of islands.

    While it's fun to gallop through the countryside or run around a town, sometimes you just want to get somewhere fast.
    Getting to the various towns and regions in Red Dead Redemption 2 often means travelling across the massive map on horseback. However, there are ways to cut down on all that horsemanship and equine bonding.
    There are two ways you can fast travel in Red Dead Redemption 2 , but you can't just open up the map, choose a location and whisk yourself away at the drop of a hat.

    You can unlock Mexico in Red Dead Redemption 2 with a map glitch, but only after you've completed the campaign. Minor spoilers ahead.
    Red Dead Redemption 2 players can take a jaunt to Mexico once they've finished the main storyline, glitching through the map to reach the other side of the San Luis river.
    There's not a lot to see over there, with just a single building to poke around in, and you'll need to seriously stock up on stamina and health tonics, and as much food as you can stuff into your satchel if you want to visit it.

    Herding stray cattle in a storm. Stepping off a train as a drunk man stumbles out of a saloon. Watching the sun set on Mexico as José González's Far Away marks the halfway point in an epic adventure - moments of quiet reflection dominate my memories of Red Dead Redemption.
    John Marston's story was bespattered with brutality, but beauty was always only a dusty verge away in a world where violence and nature collide. Rockstar knows exactly what made the first game special and - as crunchy and satisfying as they were - it wasn't the gunfights.
