Red Dead Redemption 2: 16 Essential Gameplay Secrets You Need To Know

16. You Can Draw Your Gun INTO Dead Eye

All those times you get accosted on the way to another mission? The times you just want to riddle an angry platoon of bandits with buckets of led?

You can do it even easier than aiming your weapon and being fired upon first. Instead, lightly start to squeeze R2, and like the duelling minigame, you can draw into Dead Eye from any position.

You'll know you're doing it right because the colouration of the world will turn sepia. Enter the mode fully with a full trigger depress, then get to painting targets or getting your gun off in glorious slow motion.

There's nothing better.
