Man, chapter is 5 is really heavy.

The game has become incredibly sad (in a good way, since I actually care about the characters). Can already tell chapter 6 is gonna be rough.

Even the side missions have a melancholy feeling to them that’s different than in previous chapters. It’s handled really beautifully in spots.

So any tips on taming that white arabian horse?

I have literally spent a entire hour chasing that thing around, the calming system only works 30% of the time and the three times i have managed to mount it it has bucked me despite me following the instructions, should i use the lasso or what the fuck am i missing here?

Edit : Finally got the fucker, wow i will not be doing any horse taming ever again, if that thing dies i will reload my save.

I just want to go on record and say that I absolutely think the game looked better before that damn update that added the online beta. (PS4 Pro with a LG C8 OLED)

Has that been the general consensus?
I have not noticed anything at all, what in particular looks worse to you?

Stop manually saving. It should only ask you one time after you load a manual save.
No way. Who would ever stop manually saving?

What are you talking about? the game looks just the same. I can't imagine why you would think the look would change with the online added

Finally created legend of the East satchel. All that hunting was incredibly fun, just need 1 ox pelt now to fully upgrade the camp. Still on chapter 3, don't know where the camp goes next but really love this location near Rhodes.

So, if I've finished the epilogue and haven't gotten the 'finish all honor missions' trophy, does that mean I've somehow missed one at some point in the game?
Unfortunately I believe so. Pretty sure the last honour mission is in Chapter 6 so that was your last chance.

Forces myself to push through some gambling challenges last night, 1/3 for blackjack wins with 3 hits or more. Can you quit/load between wins during the 3 domino games in a row or does it have to be done one after the other, some of the hunting challenges- like 9(?) consecutive small animals kills reset if you saved then loaded at say 5/9.

Been waiting all day to post that I finally beat all the challenges. I'm so happy to finally have all them done.
How did you did you do Survivalist 7 - 8 consecutive Small Arrow kills? I'm finding these guides that say Frogs would be the easiest, but I just used Dead Eye on a Frog that was resting and it still missed... lol

On Xbox One, you could replay the mission
"Home Improvement for Beginners"
and it would unlock. I'm not sure if it was patched, but maybe give it a try.

If you go to Valentine near the horse auction there are chickens you can kill them. Then I went to Emerald Ranch and killed a few there. Make a save beforehand because the small game arrows don't alway get a clean kill. Be sure to do it fast while wearing your bandana because you will definitely become wanted.

I'll definitely try that. Thank you.
 
So

It's hit the fan, just got to Chapter IV. Had an epic shoot-out in Rhodes with the Grays, and went to the Braithwates afterwards for another shoot-out. Felt sorry for Catherine Braithwate in a way, but then she did have it coming after taking Jack (but that was our fault for dealing between the Grays and Braithwates, as it was explained being the fault of some camp members. Went back to the Braithwate house afterwards to find the charred remains of Catherine inside.

I'm starting to see rifts in the camp between people, mostly down to decisions being made which are apparantly for the "better". Because we moved to just South of Rhodes now, the boat i paid for when north of Rhodes remains, so if i want to fish i gotta go to the old camp site to get fishing.

And i swear one member of the KKK is immortal. 2 revolver shots in the head, and they kept getting up. Took literally throwing a fire bottle at them to finish them off.

My version of Arthur now rocks the longest hair you can get, but a beard with a 2 in length.

I managed to do it down in the muddy area around the abandoned shack where you find (side quest spoiler)
Black Belle.
If you go into the shack there's usually a few rats inside and beneath it, as well as muskrats down by the edges of the pools of water. Remember that you can also kill birds for that one as well, and make sure you're pulling back the arrow all the way and not just tapping R2/RT. But yeah, I had a few dead-eye misses from near point black, very irritating. Be sure to save before firing off any arrows so you can reload if you lose your streak.

I followed catvonpee 's advice and completed it. Thanks to both of you. Appreciate the help. :)

Ugh, I really did try to complete the gambling challenges but I just can't get through this 3 in a row domino challenge. I actually wound up getting 2 Blackjack wins with 3 or more hits in a row, so that was pretty painless but 40+ mins down and still 0/3 on domino game wins. I wouldn't mind so much if the animations for shuffling etc. all didn't take so long either but I just feel like I'm making the game more tedious than I want to it be right at the end of the story.

I seem to recall seeing that if you abort/quit dominoes it doesn't count as a loss, so if you're about to lose a game, just quit. Then you can play again and it shouldn't reset your consecutive win counter. Could be wrong about that though.

Hm, does the glitch work on the PS4?

The gambling challenge is the only one that I've completed so far. Protip: if you are about to lose a match of Domino, just quit it. You don't lose your streak.

My wife really likes the fishing in this (she's not big into videogames generally), so last night I helped set her up to fish for the Legendary Sockeye. She was having a hell of a time with the line snapping after a few minutes of effort. And then we found a way to totally cheese it; you cast as short as possible. The fish, regardless of where it is, will make a beeline for your lure, and you only need to crank the reel for about a second after hooking it to get it out of the water, even if it's struggling. Is it like that with all the Legendary fish? Because that seems silly.

Had another funny moment with that same fish, actually. My wife had guided it towards an ice floe, and it ends up jumping onto the ice and stopping. I tell her to cut line and go chase it, and it starts slowly sliding across the ice. We're watching Arthur's animation of slowly folding his pole up screaming "no, just drop it, you can get it in a minute!" We get control of Arthur again, I start sprinting over to this ice floe just to hit the water at the same time as the fish, which immediately gives me the slip. That's a hardy damn fish.

There's some real big fish up in Lake Isabella. After we landed the Sockeye, my wife went back and caught a 19 lb Muskie, but there was no room on the horse so we had to cook it immediately. What a shame it's so far from any sort of fast travel point. It's such a beautiful serene area (when you aren't getting chased by wolves or grizzlies anyway).

Please Please Please tell me this gambler 8 challenge is possible. I've been at if for 2 days now and can't get a single win. Hell, I can't even get 3 hits most of the time. I'm getting big cards all the damn time and can't hit on shit.

Is there a specific place to play? I've been playing in Van Horn and I'm going crazy.

Welp... I just had a Legendary Fish disappear on me, so that means that the "A Fisher of Fish" Mission is not completeable anymore and it also means that I can't get 100% anymore. Sucks, because I am at 96% with over 177 hours played. Kinda stupid that Legendary Animals appear at the Trapper, but Legendary Fish are just gone forever, unless I'm missing something here?

Hoping for a fix, but what are the chances for it? Submitting a ticket/feedback either way and I'm hoping for the best.

No old save you can load up? Might be worth it to re play a few hours if you want the 100%.

It is. Don't worry about winning and just keep hitting. You will get it eventually. Just keep hitting until you get 5 cards there... as long as you are around 18 or 19, odds are you'll beat the dealer.

I sure hope so man. I've been at it forever it seems and I've had the chance to hit 3 times about 5 times. Out of those 5 times I've had the chance to win twice but ended up pushing. Meanwhile I've gotten blackjack about 7 times and won more hands than I've lost. Yet can't seem to get a small hand to hit on, at all.

Where did it disappear? Off your horse? I think they'll respawn in the wild in that case after a few days.

So I just finished chapter 2 but spent so much time doing literally everything else in the world. A lot of friends and such finished the game first week and want to talk about it, and to be honest I want to get through the story now.

So am I okay to blast through the story and just do all the side-stuff like legendary animals/gunslingers/dino bones etc. etc. after the story? There's no downside to finishing the story right?

I think the white question mark Stranger and Honor missions are missable. Also, you might want to do bounties so you can make money. Or the treasure hunts you can make a good deal of money.

There's no downside, but the rewards that Legendary Animals get you are really useful during the main campaign and less so in the endgame (they basically increase your health, stamina and dead eye stats along with giving boosts to XP gains), and they're much easier to hunt than ordinary animals as you can shoot them a thousand times and never ruin the pelt. I would highly recommend doing them before mainlining the story. The gunslingers you don't need to do, but they unlock some neat weapons early on, so they aren't a bad idea. The dino bones you can't complete until the endgame anyway so don't waste your time. Treasure hunting is an excellent source of money early on, but not crucial. They are entertaining to solve without looking up the answer, and every one of them feels possible by just exploring the world, so I do recommend them.

At which point do you unlock the ability to craft explosive arrows? Charles has started making some fire arrows after I gave him some Moonshine but I already had that skill. Just need to craft the explosive ones to complete one of the survivalist Challenges.

I could be mistaken, but I think you can buy the recipe from a few a fence, and then should be able to craft them. On the crafting screen, there’s a button to switch between showing only the recipes that you currently have the ingredients for, or just every single recipe. If the Dynamite Arrows have a padlock icon, then you don’t own the recipe.

Note that you have to actually open the recipe after buying it too.

When you are exploring and mopping up challenges after completing the story
when John starts having flashbacks to things Arthur told him, it can be creepy as all hell if you are in the middle of nowhere or at night. I even had the camp-fire song start playing at one stage while hunting.
Totally unnerving.

I was walking along in a town and heard some people arguing, I didn't know exactly what was going on but by the time I arrived a guy shot a woman in front of her husband and I got the shooter while he was running away. The game then penalized me with negative rep because apparently I was supposed to be wild west Batman and instantly take the bad guy down.

Um. Did I just get drugged and presumably raped by some chuckling hillbilly just north west of Saint Denis? The guy is sat on the porch of his tatty green house and is suspiciously friendly when I rock up (everyone else tells me to go away), invites me in so, well aware it's probably a trap I go in, shotgun at the ready, but get clonked on the head and treated to a weird cut scene with this creepy guy stroking me and then lots of grunting and shuffling noises and I wake up, nothing stolen, about half a mile away with all my cores drained.

I went straight back and killed him "Not you again!" says the guy as I blow him away with the pump action. I couldn't dismember him though. Wonder why that was.

Also, finally realised I need small game arrows for perfect snake hide and now finally have a nifty hat with a snake head on it. It needed a perfect sheep hide too, I got that from the Valentine stock yards at night and just sucked up the night in jail on an animal cruelty charge.

I was wondering how those were triggered. I thought it was just a little treat for going back to their first camp outside of Valentine because I get nothing at the second, plus the Brood have moved back into the fourth meaning no exploration and John never went to the third. Interesting that it's a regular occurrence.

Yeah the game's not great with the window of time on stuff like this. I found a family in the woods being terrorised by some gang members when I was standing on a cliff, visuals almost completely obscured by trees. Realised I'd never get down in time so I had to deadeye them from afar, ended up killing the struggling wife and only one of the bandits because I couldn't tell who was who... whoops :|

Game broke on me today, which was a bummer. I've played through the game in its entirety and I'm on my second playthrough, focusing more on wrapping up challenges, hunting/fishing, crafting, and stranger missions I missed in my initial playthrough. I'm pretty early in Chapter 3 and I still hadn't wrapped up the initial weapons challenge of killing 3 people with a knife. Well, there's a particular faction near Rhodes I knew were shitty, so I knifed one of them, got wanted for murder, escaped and made it back to my camp just as the investigation ended, but apparently that triggered a glitch, because after that I wasn't allowed to use any coach anywhere, even after paying my bounty, because "you can't do this while you are wanted." I tried a bunch of things to fix it, including getting wanted again, and just wound up with a $300+ bounty. Ended up loading a prior save and losing out on a couple hours of progress. Kind of annoying that.

I just got to the mission where
Sean gets killed and stupid Micah keeps dying. They should have made NPCs invincible.

Edit: Nevermind I got it. He was just standing outside of the gun store like a dumbass and getting shot.
