        there sould be a free roam with zombies. zombies is a big hit on the game you guys could charge money for the zombie free roam or, whatever but i think a undead free roam would be awesome

          Put a T-Rex on as a mount. Defineately want to enhance the multiplayer experience. Make it more relevant to be at a higher level. It seems as if it really doesn't matter to be Lvl 50 rank 1 or 5.

            Need to add some better weapons to multiplayer. How about Bow & arrow, crossbow, tommygun, musket/flntlock, or spears. Also add some new mounts to: Borris the Bear, Lobo the Wolf, or some mounts that can do some damage. Get creative.

                Exactly how do you know who is legit and not. I am a lvl 50x5 legit. I have been playing this game since the mid---ht release...well whenever I was finally able to get in a free roam after the endless loading screen, only to have myself or my weapons and mounts disappear( lol that seems like ages ago!!) On the stat screen I have put in 10 days and some hours and minutes. Hopefully you will see my rankings on gang hideouts that shows that I am legit.

                  k0k0them0nkey, agree. Try a full game all at blackwater. Was 3 posse's and was just annoying getting killed by invisable people. Patch has ruined the fun, hope another good game is released, put this one back on the shelf.

                    I have to agree with Super_Souvlaki about the issue with the players that use mods to instantly level-up to 5th legend. Normally, that wouldn't cause any trouble but most of the times, they boast about their prestige or hunt you down with their easily obtained golden guns and kill you till you manage to change session!!! I would like to ask all those who used that mod what are they going to do now. When there's nothing else to unlock & they keep wandering around as a frail old granny riding a zebra donkey staring at passer-by riders! It's more fun the normal way moders! Why don't you try it some day?

                      I must admit that you R* producers have made Red Dead Redemption one of the best games of the year! I am informed about your upcoming DLCs so I wanted to suggest some ideas for new content that may be included in the DLCs (it's up to you to decide whether it's possible to be put in). New weapons are ALWAYS welcome and make players very pleased & delighted (bows, flame arrows, poisoned throwing daggers, DOUBLE REVOLVERS, TNT launchers and whatever else you can humanly imagine)! New multiplayer events like if someone becomes a public enemy, the lawmen will catch him and then his gangmates will help him escape from prison (maybe it's a stupid idea). An awesome add-on content would be a variety of new mounts!! BEARS, JAGUARS, PANTHERS, HUGE LIZARDS, LIONS et cetera! Another idea of something like mounts & really awesome is to make CARS & FLYING DEVICES (like the one encounterd in a stranger's quest in singleplayer in Mexico) player-accesible!!! That would be gorgeous, fascinating, fabulous....

                        ROCKSTAR GAMES PLEASE READ THIS!

                        Before you release the "Attack and Defend" mode in the "Liars and Cheats" pack i wanna give you some good places where players could play this mode.I have 5 places that could be pretty awesome to play.I dont know what the mode looks like but i think its a kind of search and destroy like a team has to destroy or steal something and the other team has to protect without respawn.Here are to places:
                        1)El Presidio with some rifles,snipers and cannons could be nice.
                        2)Cochinay with the gatling gun up there in the village , some rifles , snipers and some TNT in the village so players could blow their ennemies.
                        3)Torquemada in the ruins with snipers , rifles and maybe add a gatling gun up in the tower of the town.
                        4)Escalera over the villa of Alleande and with a gatling gun in the front of the gates with some rifles ,pistols and firebottles well a little bit like the mission in singleplayer "An Appointed Time" and double the battle area cause it would be to little for 16 players and players could blow the doors .
                        5)Fort Mercer with some snipers , rifles , pistols and gatling guns on the wall of the fort where players could plant explosives to blow the big doors.
                        I hope i helped you Rockstar Game and i hope you will put some of the maps i said.
                        Please reply and tell me if you will put them.
                        Thanks for reading.

                          Thanks Rockstar for continuing to improve what is already a great game. A couple of issues for you:

                          After resetting all challenges after going to legend status the Co-op challenges for completing them as different classes i.e. gunslinger, marksmen etc. do not update for completed missions.

                          After your recent update you no longer see player titles (unless you aim at them) which is very confusing in gang hideouts as you generally shoot your fellow players.

                            Will the expert hunter and savvy merchant be released with any of the up coming dlc or will they be released by themselves?
                            • NaenaeBoyon August 8 2010, 8:14pmReplyFlag
                              Can some one tell me if all your free roam, pvp and weapon challenges etc... reset every time you go past level 50 or just the first time you go into legend mode?? I'm currently on 1st legend lever 26.

                                    great game i had a few problems with it like lack of charectors and not enuf gang hideouts but dlc is sortin them out so good job... but mounts... im sick of having the same boring bland mount, pls customisable mounts, i wanna make a mount that is personal, a mount i like, im talkin being able to unlock different colours for your horse's fur, main and saddle, and unlocking different saddles and styrups etc through challenges and levels, maybe you unlock a spiked saddle after killing 100 players on your horse or like a wool saddle after riding for 100 miles on your mount, i would love to have a white horse with a white main and white saddle =p hope you take it in to consideration and people pls post ways this could be improved your own idea's of how to unlock things and things that can be unlocked thanks all :)

                                        @ROCKSTAR, the online experience is 1 of the best games out there but is it just me but all the games i have ill win most the matches but then most of the players do1 and the server never seems to get filled back up and im usually left by myself waiting for more players 2 join which it never does????? then il try 2 find another match to jump in, then it just puts me back in the same server by myself again whats going on????? finding matches shouldnt be stressfull but im started to get bored and fed up.
                                        how about sorting it so theres always atleast 10 or more players in a match, i dont have this problem on other games like COD etc so come on ROCKSTAR sort it cos i love this game but would hate to have to get rid cos of lack of online players to kill cheers
