Stuff worth doing post-patch?

Recommended Posts

What are people doing in online after the latest patch? What's your routine?

I've jumped in yesterday to try out the changes, did a few of the simple daily challenges off the bat, spent an hour or so trying to finish the other ones that I would do anyway (sell 5 carcasses, skin 3 turkeys, etc.) didn't bother with the super long and boring ones or that required me to buy stuff I don't own. I've hit a few gang hideouts that were on my way and found my first ever treasure map :o (it's been like 30-40 of these now)

I've earned next to nothing during those few hours but at least gathered nearly a gold bar between the challenges and the map, so didn't feel like a waste of time.

The panther carcass glitch looks like one worth doing, who knows maybe if I'm desperate I'll break my code of honour of never doing exploits just to spite R*? :P

Now that death train is financial suicide, I guess all we're left with for now are stranger missions for crew sessions?

Sorry for the negative tone, I'm really trying to have an open mind here. I kinda enjoy that you can't be an invincible tank in PvP anymore and my preferred style of play is equally (badly) lucrative as anything else in free roam (i.e. not griding a single activity or location, riding around the whole map hitting hideouts and hunting in-between).

I’ve not played in maybe over a month, this patch has nothing that will bring me in.  

Until this game has a creator/friends or crew lobbies/anything fun I’ll be playing Overwatch.

Do the story mission if the hat fits to get 0.16 - 0.24 gold nuggets 13 minutes or longer, hopefully they didn't change that as well.

I'm trying to do the daily challenges, but most days there is no way I will do them all. Even at the weekend I only just had time to get all 7 done. They do vary in difficulty and time needed massively. Changing what I'm wearing, selling X amount of different meat etc are dead easy, getting X amount of players kills with a specific weapon no so easy and not necessarily something I even want to do. Then there some posse based ones that I am probably not even going to attempt, like winning a feud. The hunting / fishing ones are good, not so simple you can do them immediately but not too time consuming nor dependent on other players.

The main thing for me that this update did is I can do stranger missions and gang hideouts again, which had almost stopped working for me.

You would figure that if the daily challenges required you to kill other players, those kills would be exempt from the bounty BS........but nooooooo!

The bounty system as it sits today is just plain stupid. If you get attacked and defend yourself, you get a bounty! I knew this would be the case when R* leaked it. Just another money grab that solves nothing. There is sorta a positive side to the bounty system. Ultra got the bounty hunters after him. As a posse member, the game tells me to defend him and help him escape. It then tells me to finish killing all the bounty hunters. While fun and different, it got me a bounty level also. Again, nothing but a money grab.

To answer the topic, I've just been basically hunting and fishing to try and amass a nice nest egg in hope of something better to buy is coming down the line. I've also bought some recipes for horse and myself.

R* needs to get rid or mod the Bounty system as it sits now.

The silly bounty system should be for killing the police to stop the police farming head shots method in the mineshafts, stables & in the cities, that's completely understandable. It's clear they didn't really think of it much before implementing it, or did they? I guess they want you to buy gold bars for everything now by keeping poor. It was shocking enough that you cant sell your horse for money, now they've brought a systems that takes money from you when it comes to some of the fun aspects of the game. I think games died in 2017 that it was a mobile game monetization model that killed it.
