The latest trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2 has left us all with a desire to fall asleep and wake up the morning of October 26th. This game play trailer has given us a glimpse of what the world of Red Dead Redemption 2 will be like. And as we all get lost in this beautiful open world, we will needed to be well armed. So it is important to take a look at all the amazing weapons confirmed so far for Red Dead Redemption 2!
The lasso is a returning weapon that has been confirmed for Red Dead Redemption 2. This versatile ‘weapon’ has many applications depending on the circumstance. Need to tame a new steed to traverse the wild? Good ol’ lasso for the win. Or you could just use it to hogtie a bounty or some unfortunate soul who you plan to place on the railroad tracks. The choice is yours!
Of course this one is obvious, but from the trailers it seems hand to hand combat has been vastly improved! You can now tackle, counter, and even disarm enemies. Hopefully the next trailer will dive deeper into this combat system.
Stick of Dynamite
Bow and Arrow
Pistols and Revolvers
Colt 1873 Single Action Army Revolver
The M1892 Colt Army & Navy was the first general issue double-action revolver with a swing-out cylinder used by the U.S Military(Wikipedia). It is a smaller revolver and will probably act as a start revolver for us when we begin our journey.
Smith & Wesson Schofield Model 3
Colt New Army & Navy
Rifles and Repeaters
Spencer Repeating Rifle
This was the world’s first military repeating rifle and was actually produced over 200,000 times between 1860 and 1869. This gun is returning from the first game, but if you recall from RDR1 it wasn’t to powerful to begin with. Even if it is not great in combat it will do the job for hunting for sure!
I highly iconic weapon also known as the ‘Golden Boy” due to its easily recognizable golden plating.
This is a bolt action rifle, and if RDR1 taught us anything its that bolt actions are very powerful. These things would one shot kill anyone no matter where they were shot.
Double Barrel Shotgun
Probably one of the most recognizable shotguns there is, it is returning to Red Dead Redemption 2. Of course, the double barrel is a shotgun with two barrels allowing two quick and consecutive shots to be fired before reloading. But those two shots will devastate anything within a close range!
Pump Action Shotgun
Another returning weapon, the pump action shotgun. We got to see a glimpse of this beast in the game play trailer. Excited to see the power of this thing in game!
Hopefully the next trailer will show even more weapons and give us some more insight as into the physics system of Red Dead Redemption 2. If you guys enjoyed please feel free to leave a comment!
