Rockstar has revealed that Red Dead Redemption 2 will feature an extensive lineup of over 50 unique weapons.
The game's arsenal will also benefit from a wide range of customisation options, and players can improve their chosen weapon's accuracy, range, and damage by equipping a variety of different ammunition types.
In terms of weapons themselves, you'll get your hands on a diverse range of destructive firepower, including revolves, rifles, and shotguns. Furthermore, metals, wood, and varnishes can be used to give your weapon(s) a visual makeover, while grips, scopes, and sights will improve the various attributes for each gun.
Keep in mind that you'll have to make sure your gear is in tip-top condition by cleaning and oiling them. Weapons that are used often will function better than those that are neglected, causing them to downgrade. You can read up on more info at Rockstar's official website.
Sounds to me like you will form an emotional bond with your weapon overtime, much like your horse. I like the idea of calling my revolver 'Daisy.'
Red Dead Redemption 2 is due out on October 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
