Recap and Screens: Red Dead Redemption Official Social Club Multiplayer Events Weekend (July 23-24)
(Participants from around the world gathered together online for a weekend of multiplayer for two events in late July...)
A big thanks goes out to everyone that participated in our weekend of Red Dead Redemption on Friday, July 23rd on PlayStation Network and on Saturday, July 24th on Xbox LIVE. Complete with a live stream and chat, the latest event in the Social Club Multiplayer Events Series was packed with spectators and players from around the world.
Below we've put together a proper recap followed by screens of the events on both days.
After gathering a posse of Rockstars in Free Roam on PSN, we started up Shootout in MacFarlane's Ranch. During the opening Standoff, RedDeadDev3 recorded the first kill, shooting the head off LAMEMO. In an interesting moment later in the match, coropaulo and RedDeadDev3 fired on each other in the stables, but Mandalore357 casually entered and took both players down. NamelessMercury ended with top honors, getting $1000, 20 kills, 12 deaths and 2 robbed kills.
Entering the Outlaws to the End Cooperative Mission 'The Escape' were Sylar02, Thethirdeyeball, JuNh17 and RedDeadDev3. After clearing the first waves of enemies, the posse took to Tumbleweed to get rid of all of the gang members. Thethirdeyeball manned a cannon, but it was RedDeadDev3 and his cannon that got 32 consecutive kills, the green timer constantly restarting in the top right corner of the screen. A real spectacle to watch from the top of the hill...
GHOST_DOG_69, RedDeadDev3 and supercrazy95 began 'Ammunition' next, continuing the Outlaws to the End series of Cooperative Missions. Taking directly to the east gate, the three battled through the thunderstorm in and out of Tesoro Azul. As supercrazy95 and GHOST_DOG_69 made their way up the south hill, RedDeadDev3 sniped from far away. The three finished with a time of 9:39.11, a score of $5000 and a Gold award.
The next day on Xbox LIVE, Rockstars started up a round of Gang Shootout in Las Hermanas. RedDeadDev3 took to the roof of the east building, taking out SolaceBuster, Zackthar and Caustic1984. FightingERITHAN joined him and shot down RedDeadDev5. Nice cover up there on the roof for sure. Congrats to Zackthar for being the top player, though it was the other gang that won: D1rtySanch3z18, FightingERITHAN, RedDeadDev6, RedDeadDev3, xGOMLx Hellboy, MY JBMOOZoCOM, Jackbox15 and kn0ckOut98.
Going into Gold Rush in Pacific Union Railroad Camp, 16 players fought each other for bag captures. At one point, RedDeadDev4 picked up two bags, got a Mauser Pistol out of a crate and then got a gunshot to the face from jamkilla4877. Not really a good series of events, but it did start well, eh? GAlaXY92 came away with the win: 15 kills, 12 deaths, 2 headshots, and most important... 7 captures.
To cap things off, 16 players headed to Tesoro Azul to take on the Gang Hideout again and again. It was a killer way to end an action-packed evening, and a lot of fun shared with GAlaXY92, judd2114, Gi Joe of Doom, m16a1mike, DwK x ReFleX x, Scoonie, heronny, BlackNightmareX, snta cruz, D 1 S G R A C 3, IDrunken Elitel and day from asia...
