Adam Rosenberg of MultiplayerBlog.MTV gives you a guide on how to hunt animals on Red Dead Redemption.
Well that was a complete waste of time to read. Most of it is common sense.
Agreed, what a lame "guide"
Where's the guide?
Is there a faster way to carve? Carving takes too much time and has become too repetitive.
What would be more useful would be a list of animals, locations and how much they can earn.
Well at least I know where to find wolves now. I only ever run into coyotes.
Smaller creatures aren't probably because they can be found throughout the map (raccoons, skunks, rabbits, snakes...maybe not beavers...think they are mostly in saloons!!!*LOL*) Would be useful for prices and parts! One thing he forgot to mention is that when you stay in certain areas for too long with lots of dead animals...the cougar awaits (sneaky bastards!!!) Also...bait helps for multiple deer...if you don't scare them away! Hunting is a great way to make some cash...think I've amassed about $3000 and most is from hunting...oh and looting!!!*LOL*
The map only shows the general area, even then the animals dont appear where the picture is located like the deers for example. They're either on the high cliffs of Rio del Lobo or the best place Riley's Charge were all the buck atlers are.
I hate cougars! It killed my horse with one swipe then while i was stunned killed me with a swipe. Normally it took two hits but i guess it was a different attack or a more powerful type of cougar? I mean, there's bucks that are deers with antlers and there are bigger and more aggressive wolves that you can carve out their "wolf heart". Now im paranoid every time i hear one. -- Weird i replied to post below and it appeared here????
Worst. Guide. Ever.
Guide: "Shoot anything that moves"
exept prostitutes, get em done, then shoot em.
Except you can't fuck the whores in this one.
Prepare yourself for "hunting time" so that you don't get distracted by side missions. It's very easy to get distracted in Red Dead. Try to get your hunting skills to level 3 so you can simply move over a target with the crosshairs in "dead-eye" mode to hit multiple targets. That's what has helped me the most. I hunt constantly. If you guys have questions, post them. If you have other advice, post that too. This article didn't give us a whole lot of good advice.
is "hunting" some kind of "hunting mode" seperate of the main game? i dont have this game yet, i got alan wake, but plan on getting rdr soon...
Hunting is part of the world. The animals exist in the world and react to what's going on in it. Some animals will run away from you, others will attack you. There were several times I died when 3 Grizzlies came out of nowhere and fucked me up. The hunting part of it is just killing the animals that exist in the world.
The internet is about to go crazy again, LoT just finished there H2H with RDR
Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to hunt virtual animals and you can officially go fook yourself!
I've been hunting a fair bit, fun as hell, have yet to see a Bear though.
Bears are located in Tall Trees area, Grizzly Bears are located north of that. Hope that helps.
correct... pretty much any dangerous animal is in this area. wolves, bears, and cougars can be found here.
I'm assuming certain animals can only be found in certain areas. From the gameplay vids I think I remember seeing a bear in a woodlans area so you might want to go to where there are a lot of trees.
Want to find a certain animal?!? LOOK ON THE FREAKING MAP! How smart are you people?
Obviously your not very smart seeing how not every animal is listed on the map. So before you act like other people are stupid, think about what your going to post before you post it.
the map doesnt show beavers. Plus the map lies i had to find some deer and went to like 4 places on the map that had deer drawings and they werent there. They ended up popping up in places not on the map for me.
It's kind of time related too. Although you can catch deer in broad daylight...I usually catch multiples in the early morning hours or just after dark. Seems that way for smaller creatures too...although the occasional skunk or rabbit will cross your path at anytime!
guide told me nothing. What I need to know is where to go to get what. I need Beavers and I cant find them anywhere. If there was a map that shows where the best places to find them and what time it would be great.
Go near water, I suppose. I haven't played the game... I was going to make a brothel joke but it was to obvious.
I was playing online free roam a few minutes ago and saw some beavers in Tall Trees, near a lake, but it was a bit far from the water (when I say a bit far, is really not that far, I just wouldn't think beavers would be like 50 feet away from water, so that could be close for other people's opinion). It was in the snowy area.
The animations SUCK (the EXACT same walk animation as in GTA IV). The horse mechanics are pathetic (Ass Creed still has the best horse animation and control). Perhaps I need to play more, but within the first 15 minutes the game glitched and I had to restart. I am thinking all those behind the scenes issues that were mentioned weren't to far from the mark.
The biggest thing that annoys me is that I have yet to find an accurate list that has all the animals on it. Going for the Unnatural Selection trophy is a bitch when you have no idea how many more animals you have to find.
what a stupid article. anyways i found a glitch so you dont have to watch the skinning videos. stand your horse over the body of what you skinning and dismount it will prompt you to skinn and will skip the video, much faster and less anoying.
beavers are at the lake in tall trees and anyone know where cougars are im trying to get rank 5 in hunting got to knife 2 of them but i cant find any i went o where i usally get attacked but i dont get attacked
