Rockstar cracks down on outlaws

We love Red Dead Redemption; from the ashes of a game that could have been a complete mess Rockstar have salvaged a complete diamond of a game and made it something with months and months of replay value. The multiplayer has been a particular hit, but as usual some unscrupulous persons have been cheating and ruining it for everyone.

A particular bone of contention has been experienced players picking on the new ones by pitching up a respawn points in free roam and repeatedly killing the same player. That’s not very nice at all, is it? However, Rockstar are working on a patch that will hopefully iron out all these problems.

‘We'd just like to let all fans and players of Red Dead Redemption Multiplayer know that we're aware a few rotten apples persist in the online world, trying to make the experience unpleasant for everyone else,’ said Rockstar. ‘We are actively working on new features to counter against the isolated incidents of abuse that go on.

‘Those who are being bullied repeatedly in Free Roam will be given the option to flee by Transporting and respawning in a region of the map of their choosing. And those who are bullying repeatedly will face a new challenge: when a player gets a 6 kill streak in Free Roam, they will become ‘Most Wanted.’ This alerts other players of their status as a player-killer, and also sends NPC law response after them.

‘Those who have been detected to be cheating beyond a shadow of doubt will be promptly banned from the Red Dead online world for a period of our discretion.
