Rockstar going after griefers in next Red Dead update

Recommended Videos

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!
