The 9 New Multiplayer Map Locations in the Red Dead Redemption Legends and Killers Pack

Posted on August 9 2010, 7:34pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

The Red Dead Redemption Legends and Killers Pack of DLC coming to Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network tomorrow features 9 unique new Multiplayer Map Locations spread across the vast open world of Red Dead Redemption's Multiplayer

Each new map location has been updated and tailored specifically to enhance multiplayer combat.  These new locations, along with added game modes for certain existing maps, provide over 30 new and unique multiplayer gameplay variations.  Read on for an in-depth look at each of the new locations - including some of the strategic gameplay each provides.


Tall Trees
Modes Available: Hold Your Own
The snowy highlands of Tall Trees create an awesome backdrop for epic Hold Your Own matches.  Because of the vast expanse of this map, you’ll probably have most success on horseback.  This map is all about coordinated tactics, go in single-handed and expect to be taken down very quickly.


Thieves' Landing
Modes Available: Gang Shootout, Gold Rush, Grab The Bag, Hold Your Own, Shootout
Under a constant river fog, the dark and ominous town of Thieves Landing provides lots of crossfire opportunities with its unique combination of cover and open space.  Look for the buildings you can climb up on, but be careful of the surrounding water.  With only a couple of bridges connecting the various areas of this map, players need to be extra vigilant in Thieves Landing because someone will always be ready to take you down.


Fort Mercer
Modes Available: Gang Shootout, Gold Rush, Grab The Bag, Shootout
Bill Williamson’s last known whereabouts in New Austin, Fort Mercer offers a close quarters paradise, with the occasional guard tower sniping from above.  Players can use the various corridors to their advantage and use their weapons strategically.  If you are in a narrow space, your shotgun can be a useful tool or if you’re perched on a high building with distance to play with, then your rifle may be your best bet.


Manzanita Post
Modes Available: Grab the Bag, Hold Your Own
The road through Manzanita Post is the quickest way to the other team’s base but also the most exposed.  The forest in the eastern half of the map provides a less exposed alternate route and also features some conveniently placed gatling guns for added firepower along the way.  Utilize the watchtowers and the ridge located in the west segment of the map for an elevation advantage to provide cover for your teammates and prevent the opposition from stealing your team’s bag.


Blackwater
Modes Available: Gang Shootout, Gold Rush, Grab The Bag, Hold Your Own, Shootout
While modern settlements like Blackwater accelerated the demise of the old west, their purpose-built block-like design serves up an awesome location for all the multiplayer modes, with tons of cover, sniping perches and choke points throughout.  With rooftops, narrow alleys, and long streets lined with storefronts, Blackwater adds intense urban combat to the world of Red Dead multiplayer.


Punto Orgullo
Modes Available: Hold Your Own
Bases are located at each end of Sidewinder Gulch and knowledge of the mazelike gorges that run through the center of this map is key to forming a cohesive assault on the opposing team's base.  You can get to the other side of the map by the main road, but are left vulnerable to incoming fire due to its open nature and lack of cover.  Whistle for a horse to gain a speed advantage and use a mounted effort of road and ravines to quickly get into the other base to grab the bag and escape back to your base.  The elevated hilltops located at the north of the map give players an added sight advantage.


Escalera
Modes Available: Gang Shootout, Shootout
The town of Escalera is defined by various elevation changes.  Controlling the villa watchtowers in the northern section of the map will give players the best vantage points to pick off opposing players.  A sniper rifle is located at the Market on the lowest level to aid in getting players off of the watchtowers.  Utilize interiors and cover while minimizing time spent in open areas vulnerable to fire from upper levels of the map.


Hennigan’s Stead
Modes Available: Grab the Bag, Hold Your Own
Teamwork is of utmost importance due to the open nature of this map.  The trees provide some helpful cover as your team makes their way across the vast plains to the other base.  Horses will prove useful so whistle for one and work together to time your assault while leaving a couple players behind to protect your bag.  Use the deadly new Tomahawk weapon in close quarters battles to help complete new Challenges.


Rio Bravo
Modes Available: Gang Shootout, Gold Rush, Grab The Bag, Shootout
The mountainous Rio Bravo area lies between Tumbleweed and Fort Mercer.  The numerous winding narrow pathways between the foothills, and the intentionally restricted choice of weapons make matches fought here extremely tense, nerve-wracking experiences.  Because opponent blips only appear on your mini-map when people fire their weapons or sprint, you’ll find people can jump out at you at any point, so look out for Tomahawk stealth kills.

Additionally, three of the original Multiplayer Map Locations in Red Dead Redemption will be getting additional game modes as part of the Legends and Killers Pack.

Diez Coronas: Grab The Bag
Pacific Union Railroad Camp: Gang Shootout, Shootout
Tumbleweed: Gold Rush, Hold Your Own

Look for the Legends and Killers Pack download to pop up on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network starting tonight at midnight Eastern time.

            I'm agree with Tom543, I bought the pack because I wanna play the new maps in gang shootout only, the other modes dont care either

              yes, i also found this pack quite disappointing :(

              Would of like a pack to play Red Dead Revolver, but just set in Redemption... I have the first one (Revolver) and the compat. is awful, sticks at Bad Bessie :( a patch would of been nice.. or even better simulate the whole game in Redemption as a DLC pack, i would pay for that... i liked that characters in this pack but thats it, the rest is wasted on me, but i didn't think it value for money and the waste is why.

              none of my friends bought the pack and I'm not a crack shot myself without a sniper rifle..sooo...

              not interested in the creepy pack or whatever, you might like horror, but when i saw that woman shoot herself in bleachers hope and i didn't know who owned it.. i was done with that, and i dont like horror anyway.

              thats my how ever many points i payed for this stupid pack, 'cept the orig. characters liked them a lot.

              if your a R* reading this I'm not blasting your hard work, i like that your toned down the evil from GTA and concentrated on the story :) I'm saying this project (pack) was of no use to me and you perhaps could of told me/us first, or let me buy the Characters themselves.

              God Bless

                I know a lot of people that are dissapointed that the new maps are only for gang matches, we thought we would at least get a new map for free map.

                    @R*
                    im seriously considering boycotting the legend and killers competitive playlists! every single match, im in there with people from all over the world (france mainly, its annoying) and the connections NEVER match up. i shouldnt have to shoot a guy 3 times in the head and have him not die, then he gets 1 headshot and im dead. even the kills i do get, they take ~.5 sec to register. and people are often jumping around the map sparatically and glitchy. i've noticed this happen from day one since legends and killers. maybe part of it is on my end of the connection but i doubt it, its never happened like this before (im not ruling that out, though) please, if this is a common complaint, please look into it. i know the servers are not supposed to function poorly like this. thank you.

                      @ DamionJeremiah
                      make sure the headshots are while you're in competitive game modes (i.e. shootout, gang shootout, grab the bag, hold your own, etc.). they will not count in free roam!

                            i think that rockstar games should make a new game... this can be a farming game based in the wild west. first i think you should be able to create your chacter and have a variety of clothes and boots that you can buy throughout the game.. then you should appear in the same time period of red dead remdempiton but maybe in a different area such as the vast farmlands in montana or wyoming.. i also believe you should start off with enough money to buy a small property then you can work on other ranches to make money to get your farm started. and then with money you earn you should be able to buy fenceing, houses, a variety of horses in different colors and breeds mare and stallions that in time on your farm can breed to create colts or fillys that can be sold to make money or you can just keep it for yourself to raise and sometime break. also different styles of stables and barn designs.. also you can buy cattle from stores or other ranches you can also buy horses from other ranches.. the cattle can be sold to other farms or breed to make calves to sell or they can be sold for beef but its all to make a income to make your farm work smoothly.. you can also raise chickens goats and choose from some different dog breeds such as a hound or lab or shepard. also plows and a variety of seeds should be able to be bought to have crops.. you can hook horses up to the plows to plow the land for farming and then you plant seeds to grow crops for you to eat or sell.. i also think that your guy should get so much sleep and food during the day but that can be debateable the sleeping should be able to skip ahead and also save your game like you have it set up now.. i dont believe there should be missions but talking or listening to certain people could set up senarios to help them out on there ranch or join a group to get back stolein cows or horses or even go hunting with them or some kind of activity... i also think wild horses should still be avalible but very hard to find and catch.. and just to make things alittle more interesting you have to fight off cattle rustlers and horse theives from makin off with your livestock with guns that you can buy from stores like a cattlemens revolver and repeater carbine and a pump shotgun..also these guns can be used for hunting and killing birds trying to get to your crops. and also into the game when your making a big income you should be able to upgrade your land to have more acres or you can buy farmland in different places to where you can herd your cattle and horses from property to property.. water and food must be bought for your horses and cattle to keep them healthy.. i really hope you will try to make a game like this alot of people would appreciate it i personally would pay over a hundred dollars for a game like this

                              I see you have included the cattleman to the golden guns list, please explain to me why i paid extra to obtain the gold cattleman (which can only be used in single player even though it never stated such in sales lit) and now everyone can obtain it with 100 headshots? doesn't make the special things people pre-pay for special anymore.

                              Does this mean i still have to hit 100 H/shots to obtain it in mutiplayer? and will i ever be able to use my warhorse in mutiplayer ever?

                                  R* i saw that you answered about getting a golden cattleman yes said get a 100 head shot's. Are we able to get gold throwing knife's by doing the same or the big cutting knife?
