    • I’ve found that I’m not very good in gunfights, and it feels like it takes 20 shots to kill an enemy. I die often when I try to do anything too crazy. Does that get easier as the game does on?

      The revolver and ammo you start the game with are pretty weak. Definitely head to a gunsmith and get yourself a pair of volcanic pistols or Schofield revolvers (I think the latter might not unlock until later in the game though), and be sure to use express ammo instead of regular ammo for better damage.

      Also, headshots will be more effective than body shots. What I usually do is press the aim trigger and then as soon as it locks on, I give the left stick a slight flick up to bring my sights up to head level instead of body level before I fire. And of course, use deadeye as much as you can, and stock up on chewing tobacco and whatnot so you can fill up your deadeye meter when it runs out.

      And for non-close-quarters combat, a pump or repeating shotgun with slugs will one-shot pretty much anyone no matter where you hit them, at the expense of a slower firing rate.

    • So I go into this small house, this old lady is sitting in a chair and yup you guessed it, instead of hitting interact, I shoot her with my sawn off shot gun! It sent her across the room. So wrong but also so funny in the GTA sense of things.

      Only up side was their was a semi auto shotgun down in the basement.

      I need to work on my controller skills.

    • I visited that lady as part of a mission. She's mean and crotchety.

      The mission requires you to go into the basement, and I saw the shotgun but didn't take it because I was playing an honorable character, and that would be stealing. When I went back upstairs she started yelling at me for stealing her shotgun. Sure enough, the shotgun was suddenly hanging from my back. 😳

      I was pretty mad about that. The game basically forced me to be a jerk.

    • and other places. The big fish you have to carry as a storable load on the horse, so now I am thinking of a pack horse to bring on trips so I can get large pelts and fish.

    • oh and I wish I got to capture the scene of me getting robbed, I shoot the guy, he falls and starts to get up and a huge bear runs and grabs him and eats him within 30 feet of me!

      This game is shocking and wonderful.

    • It’s been a while but I’m back in the saddle, so to speak. I took a break from this game because it’s so big and I just didn’t have the time to put in the work, but finding it very rewarding again as I’ve been revisiting it recently. Still only 70% through the game. Here’s a moody black and white from one of the side missions.
