How is RDR Online these days?

62 posts in this topic

Red Dead Online reminds me of South Park's parody of George R.R. Martin promising the dragons are on their way but only continues telling stories about penises glistening in the sun. This is what my wife and I gave up to play Final Fantasy XIV instead.

RDR 2’s single player ain’t no joke but the online counterpart is atrocious. The game was by far one of the best single player experiences that I’ve ever had and I had high hopes the online portion was going to be at least half decent given how much Rockstar devoted so much to GTA Online’s lifespan. Sure the online part of GTA V wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea but it was fun and the updates were rolled up frequently and kept the game fun over the years. 

 

RDR 2 seems the complete opposite. It’s like they spent all their money and time focusing purely on the single player which was phenomenal for sure, but then hyped up online and it turned out to be a complete flop. Slapped on the beta title for damage control because the entire fan base was shitting on it and how lackluster it was, and that was that. Beautiful open world which was complemented by a deep single player story only to load up online and have it be the most content dry experience. 

 

I personally haven’t played the online section of it since it first released so I can’t give my full opinion on it now because I don’t know what it’s like but from reading stuff from others seems like it really hasn’t gotten better. 

 

Also sucks to know GTA Online is STILL making them more money than what RDR 2 is. They had 1 job with the multiplayer portion of their already masterpiece of a single player sequel, and they done goofed on it. MTX filled content dry bit of doo doo is all it is.

It also doesn't help that Rockstar sets daily challenges which involve killing other players. I swear there's a new one every day.

Is this true? Can you curse on these forums? lol. Damn Mother-Fathers!

It's true. And yep, almost daily one of the challenges implied to "kill 5 enemies with 'insert weapon name here'". Maybe that will change now. There were 7 daily challenges before, now they reduced it to 4 and added weekly challenges which means to basically fullfil at least 1 challenge per day to accomplish the weekly ones.

Looks a hell of a lot different from when I last played in Feb, definitely be jumping back in. Especially now there's 25% bonus xp this week and gold bonuses.

Hell yeah. Still need 25 or so more levels to reach 50. This will help the boring grind a little.

Lol I'm in the same boat. Yeah definitely helps ease the slog. Should try out the new modes, apparently they're pretty good.

This has been fixed in today's update. There are no longer challenges that require you to kill other players.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this but you can play without a ps plus subscription until May 27th, starting today.

Last night, after the update, there were still challenges for killing other players. I had one for killing multiple players within 5 seconds, and another for getting 5 player kills with a pistol. However, all of the kill challenges were for Free Roam Events, which you have to choose to join, so they're not in the regular free roam.

The guys I quoted were talking about Daily Challenges.

 

I suppose since you have to opt in for those events Rockstar decided to leave them because you have a choice whether to do them or not.

Actually RDR 2 Online is broken, Bugs, Lags, Glitches, hundreds of dead horses without Skins at one place, invisible Player, Teleporting Player. It started when the Beta Ends.

Nobody seems to be making boosting sessions for this game anymore, is there like an easier way to get to lvl 50 on your own or what...

Right, there are still "kill other player" daily challenges, but they are not in the free roam itself, only in free roam events that you can choose to join. I should have been more clear about what I meant. 

 

Overall, I think the changes have sligthly improved the experience in free roam, but now it seems since this latest patch my game crashes an awful lot. I've even deleted and reinstalled the game, and it's still happening.

It's gotten better. But I wouldn't consider it anything else other than Beta. Just recently, new missions for Sadie Adler and Black Belle became available. However, when you go to the location of the missions, you can't enter their houses. Meaning, you can't do the missions period. Other stranger missions are also bugged, where you can approach them, but no mission can be accepted. And then there's the showdown series...everytime you try to get into one, you get stuck with an infinite loading screen. 

 

However, the random pedestrians in need of help missions are a very welcome addition to the game.

The stranger missions not starting has been a constant problem.

Yeah. And the daily challenges sometimes are "kill other players in showdowns" and you can't complete it because you can't get into one.

I played for like, 20 minutes last night. The framerate seems alot worse than it was before, the new cutscenes specially, looks like they're running at <10 fps ( PS4 slim).
