        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.

                  I'm getting so tired of seeing people complain about seeing lvl 50 5th legendaries and telling r* that we're hackers and that they should make a ban. I'm lvl 50 5th legendary because I spent up to 7 hours a day doing gang hideouts trying to rank up. Which took forever considering that R* made that update which cut gang hideout xp in half. And by the way, I bought RDR the first day it was released. So R* if you make a hack ban then make sure you don't rob the people who spent long hours each day to gain mediocre xp to get to lvl 50 5th legendary.

                      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?

                            There's a big rumor going on about a Werewolf in RDR just like the Bigfoot rumor (check youtube for more info). It's a big hype. Ofcourse, all the rumors are fake! But it would be a good idea to add a Werewolf in the upcoming DLC pack "Undead ---htmare"! Don't forget to make the Werewolf rare just like the legendary "Brumas the Bear" and let it only appear with full moon!

                            The pack will include:

                            New single player missions and challenges
                            8 new multiplayer zombie characters
                            Additional animals unleashed into the world (SO MAYBE :P )
                            New dynamic events

                              The number of M***** F****** using "lv50 mods" keeps increasing! It really pisses me off! Especially because it's so damn easy (all you need is an USB)... Please ban them now!

                                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.

                                        I'm liking the fact that you will be able to play as Red from Red Dead Revolver
