Your hat is on your horse, if you lose it.

The realization that Tim hadn’t found the stash of hats yet (?) makes the comic 10 times funnier. Hmmm…. next comic just a horse with dozens of hats around it? 😀

It’s the only way to explain you spending a third of the game looking for your hat

The comic and the GIF suggested such.

I keep finding really cool hats and losing them and they are not on my horse. Only special hats go to your inventory but you have to go to a dressing room to change. It really is annoying losing your hat all the time.

The hunting and looting got me laughing the most.

Most of these I get, but, errrr….just what hypothesis is Arthur attempting to prove in the science section?

I can just see the science fair tri-fold display that he puts together.

The Effects of Train Wheels on People by Arthur Morgan

Complete with hypothesis, before and afters, multiple control tests, illustrations, graphs, and a conclusion: if people and trains should interact, people should ride in the train, not under it.

I think he’s (A) waiting to find out how long it takes for a train to arrive and (B) how many pieces of the body will be left when the train has passed through.

That is all.

If that’s the case, I truly hope this is a two-way line with one hub in Denver and the other in Salt Lake City

Likely science: can man survive under the train if no (vital) part of him is directly under the wheels 🙂

Hunting seems almost too easy to me. I don’t know what you’re filling full of arrows, but most stuff I’ve hunted drops with 1. Looting just takes forever, and I hate that you can’t easily look at what you’re trying to grab. Most of the time if I’m searching a shelf and I get the “you can’t carry any more of this” I go use one, even if I don’t need it, because that’s easier than trying to focus on the next thing on the shelf. The accidental murder…. man… see my comment from the previous comic 😀 I almost… Read more »

In most cases with multiple items close together, when you have one highlighted you can press RB/R1 and it will cycle to the next. Sometimes it doesn’t work with stuff on the ground if it’s *slightly* too far apart, but definitely works with shelves and chests and stuff.

Also, you don’t even have to reapply your full outfit for the hat – just open up the weapon wheel, tab over to your horse, and you can select any of your “saved” hats on the bottom right section of the wheel.

Keeps accidentally punching a horse instead of interacting with it.

I am so glad I am apparently not the only person who has had that kind of trouble in video games. Back in Fallout New Vegas during my very first time I ended up murdering the whole town because some guy attacked me after accidentally I punched one of the animals. At first I just tried to run and fled back to doc’s place, but then HE attacked me. And well it just went downhill from there. Can’t believe they forced me to kill the entire town. Haven’t they ever heard of deescalation?

They tried to deescalate the situation, but you punched the head of the deescalation committee somewhere around death 37…

I spent quite a lot of time trying to figure out why I kept getting a wanted level. Turns out that when you respawn after wearing a mask, you continue to wear the mask. In a store, the owner might warn you to take it off. In the streets, they just start shooting. Ahh the Old West…Guilty until proven dead…

If you run out of arrows on big game, use your lasso and hold down the button. They will be locked in place, allowing you to casually walk up and stab them in the neck. This also preserves the quality of pelts.

This game is so freaking awesome. The flaws I can live with.

DUDE! I have to try this, I need perfect pelts for upgrades and been having trouble getting them

It’s how I got them. Also, when you target an animal hit the button R1/RB and it’ll show you the quality of pelt in the bottom right of the screen. One star is poor, two stars is good, and three stars is perfect. In the left side of the screen it will tell you the condition of the animal carcass from poor to pristine.

Doing this with the larger game (it will not work on bears, though) will keep the quality of both.

Good caveat. So far, what I’ve found works really well for bears is feeding them a light bullet peppering to season my corpse when they catch up.

I have not found something that works really well against bears. 😀

Yes I’ve shot the butcher I don’t know how many times now let alone others, haven’t been kills fortunately yet. Kinda surprise he is still willing to do business with me a this point.

For the hat however just save sets on your horse and can change into it, even if your “changing” into the same set.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who more often than I’d care to admit commits accidental murder while attempting to greet.

Also, you don’t have to do an outfit set. There is an option in the HORSE wheel that allows you to change your hat from up to 5 stored on your horse.

You’re right! I can’t believe I missed that. I had spotted the option to mask up with whatever mask. XD Partly because I hadn’t realized I’d equipped one when I bought it ’till I thought about why everybody was complaining about hiding my face.

Erm… I think you may have misspelt “sociopathy” as “science”, don’t worry, it’s an easy mistake to make.

Just started this game and agree with it all!! – especially the accidental murder. Went from a game where the sprint button was R2 (PS4) and that is now the shoot button… accidentally killed a few people

Okay, so I have to run away quickly because these people can cream me in 5 minutes…Just gotta spri-dammit.

I’ve spent a lot of my game time stacking bodies in amusing arrangements and hiding nearby to see what people say when they find them. Or feeding bodies to pigs. Or feeding bodies to wild animals. Or seeing how bodies float down the river… wow I’ve killed a lot of folks…ah well!

There’s a “psychiatrist” in the game. I forget her name, but she’s by the grain where you can pick up the water bucket for the “Refill Wash Basins” chore. Arthur will talk to her about all the things he’s done, like Michael from GTA would do with his psyche.

I guess I killed a LOT of animals, because Arthur was talking about how he is “needlessly killing animals…just because it seems!” In my defense, I WAS selling the carcasses and pelts.
