Players claim to be hitting rank 1000 in Red Dead Online

That's new!

Big numbers are impressive, and thus it’s something of a milestone that a player in Red Dead Online has hit rank 1000 for what he claims is a first for the game, though apparently there have been others with less impressive provenance. While it’s hard for anyone but Rockstar itself to verify that this rank milestone was reached completely legitimately, since exploits and such are not exactly uncommon in the game; for example, there’s video of a player who had reached 900 farming headshots on another character who appears to just be an alt account made for farming. At least one other person who hit the milestone was similarly confirmed to be cheating, adding an extra layer of contention.

Still, the claim is that it’s legit and it’s still a darn big number. It’ll take anyone in the 300s a while to catch up, although we imagine that’s when you can start claiming that a town ain’t big enough for the two of you.

What will this particular player, @GTAV_Informer, be doing next? “Take a little break from the game until Rockstar release the next update,” he told fans.

How does this person know they are the first? I’ve noticed in a lot of games that don’t display records for stuff like this, people often claim they are the “first” of something when many other people have already got there. The other people just did it silently instead of announcing it from the rooftops.

Also if most people playing the game all day long every day are in the 300s, how are we to believe this person did it legitimately? Because they say so?

so i read yesterday about a new patch with bug fixes – i got excited! reinstalled the game, logged on at my camp. i got on my wagon and actually found some wildlife to hunt! i started getting excited. i filled my wagon and went to return to my camp …… which was now gone.

uninstalled

this was the single most disappointing game release in my 25 year history of video gaming. this piece of software is a garbage dump. this company should be paying us to play this junk.

what a waste of time and money.

I want the game but have been delaying getting it due to the bugs and stuff on the PC version. It is possible it’s fixed up good enough now for a new starting player, but now I’m playing something else and so either will wait until I’m finished the other game or wait until this one goes on sale (or both).

Sorry that you were caught early with the bugs, but a lot of people do seem to be enjoying the game still.

I really don’t want to play stuff on console. I haven’t played consoles for years, I’m no longer used to gaming controllers.
