Rockstar going after griefers in next Red Dead update

Within a few seconds of first entering Free Roam mode in Red Dead Redemption, I spotted another player. Thinking, "Hey, I'm going to go see what he's doing," I started calmly walking toward the gentlemen. I never made it; he shot my in the face without hesitation.

Who could have guessed a wild west setting plus online multiplayer would equal "kill everything that moves ... and also the stuff that doesn't"? Well, that's pretty much what Free Roam is like, for better or worse. In a title update coming next month, Rockstar hopes to make it less chaotic.

Cheaters/hackers will be banned, and those being trolled will have the option of teleporting to a new location on the map. Furthermore, whenever someone gets a six-kill streak, the game will alert NPCs and players of the killer's new "most wanted" status.

Sounds good to me!
