Recap & Screens: Red Dead Redemption Official Social Club Multiplayer Event on PSN (June 3rd)
(Had a blast of a time with everyone in last week's Red Dead Redemption PSN Social Club event...)
Thanks to everyone that joined in on the action in-game, in the chat and watching the live broadcast stream in last week's Red Dead Redemption event on PlayStation Network in the Social Club Multiplayer Events Series.
Below you can find a recap offering up stories of some of the evening's memorable moments, followed by a choice selection of captured screens.
One of the first rounds played during the event was Gang Shootout in Tumbleweed. When the opening Showdown began, discms claimed the first kill when he shot LordSputnick. Rebeldes and members of Walton's Gang scattered about the abandoned town for cover. For instance, our own RedDeadDev3 ran into the abandoned saloon and used the second floor balcony for his Carcano rifle hunting, shooting the head off Rik-E-Ragga. Players on the winning team included An-dz, RedDeadDev4, adibob6, JLP_M, TSP_mouDAmou, Alleyboy-Night and the top player: RedDeadDev3.
Next, Free For All in MacFarlane's Ranch was absolutely dominated by RedDeadDev3. His streak fell one short of reaching 14 when CEEKO aimed down from the barn and pulled the trigger. RedDeadDev3 respawned, ran back and got sweet revenge on the barn dweller, easily coming away with the full round win.
Chuparosa was the site of the first round of Grab The Bag as two sides squared off under the stars and glowing moon. The first capture went to RedDeadDead5 with the aid of Crazy_nemo, and here's how it happened. On the way to the capture point and running along the outer wall, they both fought off coffey2000, lemon12 and samet. In the end coolhan70, RedDeadDev5, Crazy_nemo, event121 and kapor-al defeated the opposition by a score of 4-3.
Ercobra091 took cover behind the stone wall in front of the Tumbleweed mansion to start things in Shootout. RedDeadDev5 took aim from an old building in the center of the abandoned town, but it was franchiseplayer who came from behind and stole his kill. RedDeadDev5 went into Dead Eye but wasn't quick enough as franchiseplayer also gunned him down with his Winchester rifle.
In the last Competitive Multiplayer round of the night, Miners and Lawmen went head-to-head in Chuparosa for a round of Hold Your Own. The Miners showed strength early with the win in the Showdown and IWIHooligan's bag capture, but the Lawmen's CakeBandit also proved himself worthy, tying the match 1-1. IWIHooligan once again gained the Miners another capture, but Impollinator and SHOUTcast earned the win for the Lawmen with a final score of 3-2.
We ended things in Free Roam, hunting each other and conquering Gang Hideouts in Twin Rocks and Tesoro Azul. Special thanks to BuFFaLoSoLDieRxx for letting his mount loose to ram into all of us. It was a fun way to end an action-packed day of Red Dead Redemption.
Check below for screens of just a few of the exciting moments of the event.
