Recap & Screens: Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare Social Club Multiplayer Event on Xbox LIVE (November 11th)
(Four deep and ready to retire wave after wave in Undead Overrun in last Thursday's event on Xbox LIVE...)
Thanks to all of the players, chatters and live stream spectators that attended the Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare Xbox LIVE event last Thursday afternoon November 11th, the latest in the official Social Club Multiplayer Events Series - playing Undead Nightmare's "Undead Overrun" and "Land Grab" as well as plenty of other Red Dead multiplayer modes that will be re-released on disc as part of the Undead Nightmare collection in stores next week.
We began teaming up in the new Undead Nightmare co-op multiplayer mode Undead Overrun, fighting off waves of zombies four deep in Tumbleweed's 'Undeadwood'. When up to wave 12, the Rockstars and Ace Stroup knew that Sudden Death was imminent as insurmountable zombies closed in. It was time to gather on the front awning on the mansion on the hill. The crew continued to fend them off using every last bullet and stick of Dynamite. Once all Undead Bait and Holy Water were all used up, and nothing was left but their torches, they jumped down to face the end. A noble effort by Ace Stroup to be the last survivor.
We then switched over to a round of Stronghold Competitive Multiplayer in Escalera, part of the Liars and Cheats Pack. RedDeadDev3 and posse weren't able to hold off the Rebeldes, falling in the second half while on defense. A shining moment that sealed the victory for the Rebeldes came near the end of the game when frankieboombats shot down RedDeadDev3 and MINI BIN 01, clearing the way to capture the villa. Congrats to reyban44, SkinyChiaPet666, frankieboombats, Cancuino and XcinnaminitskyX.
We doubled back into another round of Undead Overrun, this time in Blackwater's 'Dead Man Walking'. Butcher Paul, Bionic Mexicanx and mcjtls fought alongside RedDeadDev3 for 14 waves, eventually ending up in Sudden Death. Using the house southeast of the church and the ladder on the brick building with the words 'Welcome To Blackwater' written prominently on the side, all four players did their best to survive as long as possible. Butcher Paul fell first, then mcjtls and finally Bionic Mexicanx and RedDeadDev3. The hordes just never stopped coming...
Next up was Shootout in Escalera, part of the Legends and Killers Pack's Free For All Matches playlist. RedDeadDev3 ran to the top of the hill to gain the high ground, shooting and killing ExcelSpreadsht and Patdabest09, right before XCol ArchangelX took him down for good. When the round ended, I bAnNi I sNipE won with $1,400, 28 kills and 12 deaths. In second place was XCol ArchangelX with $1,350, 27 kills and 3 deaths - a 9:1 kill/death ratio. And in third was Brodlo with $1,050, 21 kills and 17 deaths.
With a gambler's itch, it was decreed to be Liar's Dice time (part of the Liars and Cheats Pack) with six players in Escalera. After o KiDxCuDi o, RedDeadDev3, GVRafioso1 and Skatepro123IV were eliminated, it was down to just two players left with dice. L U F F Y, using the new multiplayer zombie character Paco Romero as seen in the screens below, was down to only one die left. He was able to single-handedly get TheAmbadassad0r down from four dice to one. One more round of bets remained. TheAmbadassad0r, holding one 4, bet one 5. Liar liar. L U F F Y, holding one 3, thought about it for a few seconds and called the bid spot on. Congrats to TheAmbadassad0r on the sly win.
After RedDeadDev3 headed back into another round of Undead Overrun and made it up to wave 18 with EgyptianPsych0, slimross87 and kollin2, we gathered with a full lobby of players for the traditional fan favorite grand finale in Free Roam, this time getting our Land Grab (from Undead Nightmare) on. Others headed into Gang Hideouts, collected Explosive Rifles, and just generally tore sh*t up. A grand event with a grand ending, as evidenced in the screen captures below...

(Zombies go boom - with some perfectly thrown dynamite from above.)
(RedDeadDev3 aims through his scope at sparta117xx. See ya.)
(Die Face, for realah. L U F F Y, outfitted as zombie Paco Romero, loses a die during multiplayer Liar's Dice.)
(RedDeadDev3 sets Dead Eye aim as Retchers combust, Bolters are incinerated by phosphorus bullets and a Bruiser approaches from behind...)
Here's a listing of all participants in the event according to our records, and apologies as always to anyone that may be omitted:
