- Horses – There are 19 breeds of horse in Red Dead Redemption 2 from Appaloosas and Arabians to Shires to Mustangs, each of which handles differently with its own defined characteristics.

Use the apt weaponry ever created
Detail, depth and choice define every aspect of the Red Dead Redemption 2 game, and weapons are no exception.
There are over 50 unique usable weapons, a massive range of options for customization. Wide selection of different ammunition types to improve accuracy, range or damage. The more a gun is used, the better it will perform. But it will also start to degrade over time if not looked after, so a trusty sidearm needs to be kept oiled and clean.
Customization of your weapon choice
Moreover, you can design an entirely unique weapon that looks and handles exactly the way you want it to. Every weapon’s performance varies in terms of damage, range, fire rate, accuracy and reload speed so it’s important to pick wisely depending on the situation.
When faced with just one or two enemies. You might want to go for a Springfield Rifle which has a slower fire rate but delivers much higher damage. For range, a sniper rifle of some kind is obviously a good choice, but scopes can also be fitted to all other types of rifle enabling you to switch between regular view and scope view at any time.
Dead Eye is a powerful weapon of its own. Temporarily slowing downtime during combat so you can pick off your enemies with more precision.
The new Dead Eye system gradually expands and becomes more sophisticated over the course of the game, from automatically selecting targets in your crosshairs, to allowing you to manually place shots on multiple targets, to be able to shoot at will in slow motion, and ultimately to pinpointing the weak spots on your enemies for even deadlier accuracy.
The system grows with you and your experience and can often provide the critical edge in a life or death situation.
