So after the most recent update and the fix of the in-game economy, I decided to revisit Red Dead Online with a friend that just got the game. Also, thanks for the free money and gold Rockstar. I used it to create a posse. I have to say some of my biggest complaints are still there but we will get to that. The economy feels much better, for example after a couple of story missions and some hunting I had enough money to buy a new gun which before the first update was not at all true. This was huge for me because finally, I could feed me and Thor (my horse) and not be bankrupt.
Tho sadly many of my complaints are still there. Really there isn’t much to do and the stuff there is to do many times is quickly ruined by other players. Hunting is kind of a chore since people will randomly shoot you and your animals despawn and people tend to hand out near the butchers.
Some of the weapons that are locked at higher levels also seem a bit odd, for example, the bow being locked at around level 9 or 10 seems weird considering its the best way to hunt and the fishing rod is locked at an even higher level. So if you just want to hang out with your friends in the world and hunt or go fishing it is not going to be a good time.
All that being said Rockstar has an excellent history of supporting their games and we all know there will be plenty of adjustments and things added as time goes on, and the game is still fun regardless. The potential of robbing banks and trains with friends is still exciting, so we just need to be patient. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
