The Weaponry in Red Dead Redemption 2

With just two weeks to the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar Games is thrilled to announce further details on the wide range of weaponry available to players.


Detail, depth and choice define every aspect of Red Dead Redemption 2 and weapons are no exception.

There are over 50 unique usable weapons, a massive range of options for customization, and a wide selection of different ammunition types to improve accuracy, range or damage.

Dead Eye

Dead Eye is a powerful weapon of its own, temporarily slowing down time during combat so you can pick off your enemies with more precision.

The new Dead Eye system gradually expands and becomes more sophisticated over the course of the game, from automatically selecting targets in your crosshairs, to allowing you to manually place shots on multiple targets, to being able to shoot at will in slow motion, and ultimately to pinpointing the weak spots on your enemies for even deadlier accuracy. The system grows with you and your experience and can often provide the critical edge in a life or death situation.
