Fast Travel - Need to
get to another town fast? In single player, approach a Stagecoach Taxi
and ride shotgun or as a passenger. And when not in a town, settlement
or gang hideout, set up camp whether you're on your horse or walking
around on the ground by pressing Select and choosing Campsite (Basic or
Improved) in your kit. Setting up camp will give you the option to
travel to a waypoint or town within any previously visited area, as
well as offering the option to save or change outfits. In multiplayer,
make your way to the nearest town and look for the Transport post.
Whether with the Stagecoach Taxi or the Transport, select your
destination and you're on your way. Both the Stagecoach Taxi and
Transport are shown with a wagon wheel icon on your radar and map.
Newspapers - Want to find out more about the goings-on
with characters and the world around you in Red Dead Redemption? Buy a
Blackwater Ledger newspaper. They're available at various places
around the game world - for instance, from the gentleman on the steps
right outside of the train depot at MacFarlane’s Ranch. And be sure to
keep reading newspapers even after you’ve completed the storyline.
Gesturing - Want to tip your hat or say hello to
someone as they pass by John in single player? Only when near another
person, tap the circle button on PlayStation 3 or the B button on Xbox
Running - Getting
Marston into a sprint is a snap. Hold A on Xbox 360 or X on
PlayStation 3 to run. Tapping the same button will gain you a bit more
speed and have your character sprint.
Moneymaking and Ammunition - Loot bodies and find
chests for free ammunition and money. One example of where you can
find chests is in Pike's Basin. Also check for ammunition in the
chests and armoires in your Houses. These properties are on your map
in the shape of a green house. You must complete a few missions before
getting your first House in MacFarlane's Ranch.
Capturing Bounties Alive - Once you get the lasso
(unlocked by completing missions for Bonnie MacFarlane), you can
capture bounties alive and earn more money. Some people will put up a
lot of resistance when you are trying to lasso them. Just give them a
single non-fatal shot in the arm or leg to immobilize them.
Rattlesnakes - While one of the smallest animals in
the game, rattlesnakes aren't too difficult to find as long as you
listen closely when running around or riding on your horse.
Multiplayer Aiming - Not
the type of person that favors aim-assistance? Once you reach level 15
in multiplayer, you will have the option of playing in the Hardcore
version of the various multiplayer game types, where aim-assistance is
stripped away. (Please note - for the extremely hardcore, we will have
some particularly hard levels coming your way soon. Details to follow
in a few days or so.)
Health Regeneration - Your health regenerates if you
get injured, both in single player and multiplayer. If you find
yourself in the heat of a battle and in danger of dying, use cover with
R1 (PS3) or RB (Xbox 360). You can also use medicine to replenish
health if you're in the midst of danger and can't get away to hide.
Storyline Completion - Keep in mind that the storyline
is not completely over with until you see the end credits. Even after
the credits, you can continue playing any challenges or stranger
encounters you wish to finish. (Note: Posting storyline spoilers in
the comments will not be tolerated. Please don't ruin other people's
game experience. We may well do an Asked & Answered purely on the
storyline in a few weeks, but we will ask for the questions nearer that
time. Please don't post them here now.)
