    Already paid a shit ton of bounties. Killing tons of people. Trying to figure out the most convenient way to make money. Robbing trains has been painful for me

    See!? I'm all giving rides home for people whose horses have died and greeting folks I ride past and doing a bit of hunting, and this crazy redneck is all like "Oh shit, I just killed someone else. Oh that guy saw me, lemme shoot him. Her too. Oh man, THAT woman saw me too! Gotta kill her. Oh, that wagon full of people saw me, lemme blow it up with TNT. Wait, now I have a huge bounty on my head?! WTF?!"

    yea someone called me a woman killer cause I gunned down someone driving a carriage and it turns out it was a broad. Historically speaking, I think my character just committed the first #metoo incident on American soil. I'm a trailblazer.

    Really? That sucks to hear. How is it different than the prior Fallout games?

    Almost non existant vats systems, non NPC's at all. The graphics look horrible, very cheap. I would watch a few for and against videos if I were you and make your own call. But its not for me.

    Yeah fallout 76 looks like trash. I don't see the point in it. Like what I am supposed to do, just build settlements. No thanks.

    Good thing Black Ops 4 lived up to my expectations.

    Love to hear that. Apparently I’m going to take your approach of looting and pillaging. No one is safe when I’m in the game!

    There is some fabulous hunting in the Grizzlies West. Go to Barrow Lagoon and work your way Northwest. Really deep snow and the animals are plentiful and large.
    [​IMG]
    I killed this Grizzly on the Lagoon and I no sooner got this fella loaded up and I encountered a MONSTER Grizzly chowing down on one of my previous kills. I decided to kill the Sombitch but by God he took me out instead. I'm talkin about Red Dead 2 btw. Really awesome game but I do not like having to bother with feeding myself and the horse. They could have left those details out and instead given the player the the option to sneak, crawl, shoot from a prone position.

    Oh, and btw, there is a glitch where I picked up 32 bars of Gold. Sold them for $500 each. I instantly upgraded all my horse tack because all that greatly affects the core drainage. That drainage is irritating to say the least so I am hoping it will help.

    That’s a big beast! One thing... you really should dress more warmly... you are likely losing core really quick there, no?

    Have you found the gold bars? I found four right off the bat. I’ve basically been robbing, murdering eand beating up everyone I can. It’s been awesome. Looking forward to the online game.

    How are you going on a crime spree like that and not just ending up killed by bounty hunters? Every time I murder someone out on the road cause I like their hat I end up getting killed by bounty hunters or have to pay a big bounty to get rid of it.

    I just watch out for them. I've only been caught off guard once. The remainder of the time, I've been able to hold them off.

    I just wonder how long you can sustain this and actually do the main story. Report your findings please.

    Also what platform are you guys/gals on?

    So each gold bar is worth $500, so I got $2000 like an hour into the game. I've put in probably 10-15 hours and I've got $1000 left after I've bought a ton of stuff and paid some bounties.

    I rob a ton of people, too. I robbed the gun shop the other day and got $75 dollars.

    Xbox One for me.

    Oh, it can be hard. @JimboBBN was doing that, just murdering everyone, and really started to get behind the eight ball in terms of bounties. I think the idea is A) you have to start being careful and B) you have to do crimes where you won't get caught, like robbing a train while it is on a bridge.

    BTW, anyone start doing bounty hunting themselves? I want to do more of it, but can't find a lot of bounty posters...

    I'm gonna give bounty hunting a try tonight. I just robbed the doctors office in Valentine yesterday. I got the Schofield Revolver (one of the best). You can go to a trapper once you've skinned three deer and get an extra pistol holster. I now ride around with two revolvers, a rifle, double barreled shotgun, throwing knives and a regular knife. Armed to the TEETH!

    What is this game you're playing? All this talk of robbing people/stores and bounty hunting has me intrigued. You play against other people or is this just a normal game you put in and play what's on the disc (forgive me if that sounds stupid. Definitely not a gamer).

    There are 2 treasure map quests you will find later, and you get 6 gold bars from that. And you pull a few jobs that net some really nice profits as well.

    Best way to make money is missions. One big payout makes anything else you do almost irrelevant.

    Has anyone else found the circus freaks? Thought that storyline was random as shit.

    Huge twist in this game after chapter 4. Did not see that coming.

    I don't think I've found any gold bars... but if they are worth 500 I definitely want to find them

    Do you just finish chapters by doing missions? Think I'm still only on chapter two.. but that would make sense considering I've spent most of my time on the game robbing people are trying to take care of bounties

    I’m obsessed with this game so have played shit out of it. Have roamed and done missions. I actually prefer to take time and explore than just knock out missions.

    I started doing night raids near Valentine where I sneak into houses all creepy style, kill the owners and take everything I can. Started doing that and stumbled on a guy screwing a pig in middle of night.
