Red Dead Redemption 2 is now up on the Microsoft store. Rockstar also notes that there will be different kinds of ammo, and that horse saddles serve as your storage option. While Red Dead 2 launches on October 26, it'll be followed shortly by Red Dead Redemption Online in November, letting you ride out onto the prairie with a posse of pals, and is expected to be every bit as big and feature-rich as Grand Theft Auto Online. Insane working schedules, with Houser admitting that the dreaded "crunch" time of Red Dead Redemption 2's development lead some of the team working several 100-hour weeks. But, guns needs to be properly cleaned and maintained or it could degrade if neglected.
Rockstar goes into even more depth about the customisation elements, which include visual and performance upgrades.
The studio even has a few tips for new players, telling fans that the Double-Action Revolver is ideal when on horseback. The system now "gradually expands and becomes more sophisticated over the course of the game, from automatically selecting targets in your crosshairs, to allowing you to manually place shots on multiple targets, to being able to shoot at will in slow motion, and ultimately to pinpointing the weak spots on your enemies for even deadlier accuracy".More news: Trump calls United States stock sell-off 'a correction'

"The high fire rate of a Double-Action Revolver lends itself well to shooting on the move from horseback", the post continues. According to Rockstar head Dan Houser, "one of them didn't work", and it seems that the developer isn't shy about removing parts of its game that don't quite hit the mark.
For situations where accuracy is key, sniper rifles may be a better fit.
