They’re toxic wild animals, thats their instinct
Happy Cake Day! :)
And then you're fined for killing their horse.
I can't believe you even get fined in free roam events. Railroad Baron was already the most frustrating ten minutes of my life, now I have to pay for every horse I killed?
Honestly I wish I could just play alone half the time. I don't want to deal with people griefing me while I'm trying to turn in a bounty or something.
This one was a newbie, but lately even on Naturalist missions their are morons that lasso you all the f***ing time, like, what the hell do they feel by crapping out the experience of someone else?
I'd like to weigh in on this: Because they're fucking assholes.
Ngl when I’m bored sometimes I enjoy going into towns with def mode active just to see if I can get any bites. They’re nearly always new players under level 20 or so, likely fresh off the boat from GTAO.
It is pretty funny, just seeing who will attack. Not so funny when I ride into Strawberry for something and have some asshole headshot me from down the street cuz I forgot to turn on Defensive mode.
Small pee pee energy
Thats not fair to the rest of us that have small pee pees and arent douche bags :(
Your horse is uh, quite the beast.
Hes a strong boah
Because you're telegraphing you don't want to be bothered and they like a "challenge" to flex in a video game. They're like little kids that if you tell them not to do something they're going to do it.
I stopped using defensive mode a long while ago, because I'd just get screwed with by griefer posses.
Like little kids and probably *are* little kids. Not to say that adults can’t be equally cuntish
Idk man, judging by the horse he ride and weapons he's not even rank 10 and he doesn't seem to know what defensive mode is either. Some new players attack anyone on sight just to test their "skills".
Or lack of.
We won't be seeing him again
**seeing him again, we won't be.**
^(Commands: 'opt out', 'delete')
One thing that irks me...the law coming after us when we do defend ourselves. Yikes.
Cause the best offence is to attack those in defence. Or at least, that’s what they think, in their little backwards brains.
I had three guys try to attack me in the swamp. I was in defensive and they weren't in the same lose so after they pulled me off my horse, they found up lassoing each other because they couldn't lock in me. I laughed and carried on as they scurried away
Damn, your character is probably the best attempt at recreating Arthur I have seen.
Thanks dude :)
I had the total opposite interaction today, nice fella actually helped me with my trader delivery, fend off all the skinner bros that showed up to take what’s mine. What a kind soul. Thanks Charlito!
I always give them a hey cut it out over the mic...if they don't comply i let the lead fly
I had to plug in my recording microphone just to tell kids to “kindly fuck off, pardner”. At least it’s crystal clear for them.
(PC, no headset.)
They just love getting an explosive round in the head... It's addictively satisfying for them for some reason 🤷♂️
I play since beta and I still don't understand how defensive mode work. I cannot attack anyone who is in defensive, it simply doesn't allow me to pull the trigger (and it's ok cause I don't wanna) but when I'm in defensive anyone can shoot at me, wtf?
That isn't how it works. Defensive just means you can't be auto targeted or seen in dead eye
Hip fire a repeater or a shotgun if anyone attacks you, always works well with me when they attack first :)
There are players who cannot resist the urge to shoot anyone they come across. There are also players that cannot mentally handle being shot at in a video game. These two groups meet often
man, wish if you lasso'ed him down and started kicking him the face, shouting over the mic "you naughty defend-mode slut"
Wonderful idea then just make sure they can’t give up by never hogtying them and just lassoing them over and over.
That was a beautiful toss. You're out here doing God's work, son.
I dunno, why was "sk8terboi" (false name) teleporting everyone in my session inside some cave and gunning them down?
Some might be indulging curiosity, but I think most are fundamentally broken, and probably destined to be on the evening news someday when their victim complex and insecurities manifest.
That or they'll one day own a very large truck.
They'll finance a very large truck. They'll never own it.
Because the average RDO players brain function couldnt power a lightbulb half as well as a potato can
The million dollar question...
He’s new it looked like
You were in Valentine.
They probably just came from playing GTA 5
I’m a bit new to the game, what horse is that?
Perlino Turkoman :)
Happy Cake Day! :D
Maybe I'm just stupid, but couldn't they have given you 1-2 clean headshots in the time they were behind you? Its just weird how slow they shoot at you
Because he in in defensive mode it makes hard for the other player to aim on him (turns off auto lock)
Why is the blood on your screen like that?
Isn't it the same for yours? I play on PS4 Pro, not sure if that makes a difference
lmaooo nice choice of Weapon
They probably don't do much looking at the HUD
Trolls live in the old west? Only reason I can think of.
It's a mix of wanting to flex how good they are while also not doing anything close to impressive. Example, the other night I was getting sniped at by some high hostility player (DARK red) who was just camping in the valley between Valentine and Heartland oil. Presumably waiting for anyone to pass through. I just question how that's even entertaining for someone.
Proportion response? 😜
even worse when they kill you while THEY’RE in defensive and you can’t fight back
Cause they're braindead
Because they're idiots
Grifters need their fix sometimes...
Four dollars well spent!
How did you get your character to look like Arthur dude ?
Heritage 19 and playing around with the settings, didn't intend it to look that way but just rolled with it
Because some people just don't care if your minding your own business they attack if you in a fight randos attack
Foo ass with out his aim assist
Not been greifed much but rarely is it low levels, and they are generally new to game and dont know the mechanics too well so give up after a while.
Its the high level try hards that get to me. Got attacked doing one of those steal sakes from emerald farm missions and got killed by a high lvl posse going by. We parleyed and they then proceeded to blow us up every time we tried to pick the sacks up.
The same reason some asshat guys try flirt with lesbians
Idk I guess it's what some people consider a mechanic of the game. What I'd like to know is why someone decides to shoot me when I'm clearly shooting NPCs who pissed me off and shot at me first. Pretending to be the damn scales of justice. "Oh there's a high level in town shooting NPCs they must be a griefer better run over there and serve pretend justice." No. I'm just shooting NPCs because they fucking piss me off with their rude comments and bad driving skills.
Hey, that NPC is some other NPC’s child or father or sister... have a heart, think before you shoot. Unless they have a hat that you want.
Either has 0 idea what defensive is or just can’t stand the thought of someone enjoying the game in away that doesn’t involve killing everyone they see.
Imma need you to help me get that much money... dang!
Is there a hat that looks like Arthur hat
Yep, the last outlaw pass has this hat
They just do it for fun. The
They like a challenge?
Extremely Extremely random question:
Are you playing on PC or Console? If PC.. i am wondering what IN THE WORLD ARE YOUR SETTINGS? Your game looks extremely stunning and would love to get those setting from you!
Playing on PS4 Pro, captured using the share feature :)
Your gold balance bothers me for some reason
Not gonna lie, I've attacked people while in Defensive because I forgot that I put myself in Defensive.
Because they’re DICKS
Every multiplayer game has toxic players who do silly shit to annoy people
What beard is that? Looks good
The Box Hedge Beard
Because they can sadly that's their logic. Everything is a target to them.
Hah, I play almost every day and I didn't know R\* now penalizes you $4 RDO for harming another player's mount. :/
Thankfully, I don't encounter griefers very much. Glad most cowpokes are chill in this game.
same people who try and attack people in strombergs when they are on a bmx bike
Judging by the weapon and attire, it's a low level.
sometimes you just gotta shoot something
The Dedham outfit, unlocked on the Wheeler and Rawson pass 3
Their parents obviously don’t love them.
It’s funny as hell you killing him with that dynamite 😂😂😂😂😂
I remember a dude did this with me. Level 200+, sniping me with explosive rounds from his rolling block. Proceeds to ridicule me for not knowing how to fight in free aim.
how'd you get the hat
From the Wheeler & Rawson pass, you unlock it at level 100

What coat tho?
Edit: a few of you have asked about the jacket my character was wearing

The only thing that pretty much counter defensive is the elephant rifle or the double barrel, but from what I know the only reason is to get hostility. People get hostility to be seen on the map and get shot so they can get involved in pvp, so pretty much it’s just for attention. 👍
Boredom i guess
Happy Cake day love your Perlino turkoman i have one too by the name od aiko
He did it beacuse you shot Marston
All that has happened to me. While defensive, I've been shot, lassoed and even killed after rescuing someone, so I use the red menu online and I'm outta there !
A couple of times my coop partner and I delivered the goods and were attacked by evil Mary who had been just hanging around and hoping to foul up our mission.
Things like that happen and are very frustrating.
I remember when I was in Valentine and I was getting mission from The Boy he choked me right after and tried to kill my horse and chased him. But he didn’t find out that I use explosive bullets for idiots like him and shot him in the head and he stayed far away after that 💀
They have nothing better to do
Because they're idiots. Even when you're not and you're minding my own business.
Nice touch with the dynamite, btw lol
I was doing some colletor stuff yesterday and this bozo kills me cowardly. Of course, I make him pay and he decides to message me on Xbox. I report him, obviously, for harrassment.
I know that it is normal on online games, but it's just pathetic.
good use of horse cover btw.
Because they think they have to kill other players. I believe that it comes from years of games where you get xp for doing so. Don't think they've realized yet that player kills amount for very small xp.
They don't care about the xp, they just want to be dicks - also figure that those on defensive aren't going to be much of a challenge.
Nobody pays attention to them at home. They get off the school bus and hop on their dads profile and try to drown out the sounds of their mom binging heroin in the living room and they load up RDO determined to get someone to notice them.
This sounds personal lol. Making fun of someone’s heroin addiction because they shot at you.
Because they are just pathetic little creatures that themselves are in serious need of shooting, only for real, they're partly why both this and GTAO are as poor as they are.
Low levels are ballsy these days. 😂
Some people use defensive mode as a way to manipulate PvP so I keep my eye on them regardless, luckily you can still 2 tap someone in defensive mode with a carcano and the right cards.
Yup, happened on a local delivery. Full health and defensive, first shot had me red, and befour I could turn around to see where the shot was coming from the second shot killed me.
Cause you look like a ghost and new players are figuring out the game, they have no idea why you look that way.
I’ve never been new to a game and been like damn let me go shoot peaceful players
Boi, you fat as heck, you need to do some runnin
