Forums - Gaming Discussion - I want to play Red Dead Redemption 2 in third person, but...

I've been playing RDR2 for a few hours now and I have some trouble getting used to the walking animations. Without pressing the run-button, Arthur walks/move dreadfully slow. This is especially frustrating when you're inside small houses and have to turn around constantly to collect items since you have to face them to take or when looting corpses. It's like Arthur has a 2 second delay before responding to your analogue stick. When pressing the run-button he suddenly starts walking to fast and people fall to the ground when touched slightly. Overall it makes interacting with NPCs and items a pain in the ass.

For some reason this isn't the case when playing in FPS mode. Normal walking speed is appropiate and the run-button is normal running speed. Why didn't R* apply this also in 3rd person view? I would play it in FPS mode if the game wasn't 30fps. I have a lot of trouble playing FPS games in 30fps, especially during action sequences. 

Did anyone else notice this and how do you deal with it?

Can we have a RDR2 main thread so there isn't a topic for every single detail in the game?

Why would anyone running a site do that? It only hurts clicks and site revenue. 

Because it hurts user experience? My latest topic tab is filled with RDR2 entries.

As was the case with BoTW the "NX" and every other exclusive or majour game topic. Don't be the party pooper, dude. 

I'm with him/ her. It's actually quite annoying. But it is what it is.

 

As frf the walking speed... That does sound annoyiga but I'd have to see it or experience to offer any concrete info

Yeah. He is waaay to sluggish. Hope they patch a solution, its the only draw on this game I can find.

Besides the clunky controls the game itself is amazing indeed. I didn't know this level of detail were possible on current gen consoles.

Geez, spoiler alert. I didn't know the character movement was sluggish. God damn all these RDR2 spoiler threads.

OT: Just use the bikes and cars to get around.

Yeah, I noticed this as well, walk animation definitely seems faster in 1st person. I really hope they do some patching soon, I want the sluggish 3rd person controls fixed, and an option to turn off the pointless survival mechanics.



Really? I hope they fix it before I buy it, will definitely play it in 3rd person.

Okay, I figured out why this is. It's the same as the horse riding, you tap in rythym with the horses gallop to speed up and same with Arthur, you hold X until he is at a stride and then rythym tap X slowly with his footsteps and you'll build momentumn. It's actually quite genius as when playing GTA people are alwayd tapping to run faster when there is no gain in reality, now there is :D.
Upping your sensitivities with aim and look is a must to for this game. In towns abd interiors might as well switch to first person though,makes things a lot smoother. Regardless, this is way, way better than The witcher 3 was before patches. They really should give a "classic controls" option though, if it's there I can't find it.

My main problem with the controls is that reload is on B/Circle on every single control scheme. Makes no sense at all, reload is on X/Square in basically every other game I've ever played that had guns.

I just set run to toggle in the settings, no need for tapping. The problem is walking speed is dreadfully slow in 3rd person, run speed is fine. I explore in first person, much easier. What I don't get is sometimes it says press R2 to aim, and indeed L2 doesn't work to aim in those cases, yet when I press R2 he automatically shoots and alerts everyone. Stealth is better left to far cry anyway. Run in guns blazing until the R* spawn engine runs out of targets.
