Welcome to the wild, wild west of Rockstar’s universe – the Red Dead Redemption. A classic, this game has been re-released on PS4, made compatible with PS5, and even found its way onto the Nintendo Switch. Xbox die-hards? Fear not! There’s the Xbox 360 backward compatible version to dive into. A minor hiccup might be the missing PC release, but every cloud has a silver lining. Or should we say golden? Picture this: You start your game, and there’s John Marston, gunslinging with golden weapons. Intriguing, right? But what if you’re in the mood for a more authentic feel without the glint of gold? Hang tight, and let’s dive right in!
Golden Guns Origins:
Ever wondered about the origins of these shiny objects? If you’re a proud owner of the Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition or its re-release, the golden guns are tucked into the DLC package. Originally, these were a part of a separate Golden Guns Weapon Pack. Now, these aren’t just fancy; they re-skin everything, making it gold, with a few exceptions like thrown weapons and, of course, John Marston’s hunting knife. Cool, isn’t it?
Turning Off the Golden Guns:
So, let’s say golden is just not your color today. No worries! If you’re armed with the latest versions or the Golden Guns Weapon Pack, it’s pretty straightforward. Just hit the start, move to options, hop over to the config menu, and there you have it – your golden ticket to turn these weapons on or off. But wait, what about the original golden guns? You know, the Cattleman Revolver and the Repeater Carbine? Well, fun fact, they’re not just for show. They bump up your fame each time you use them. But if you’re playing an older game version and want a more rustic feel, there are special codes. And guess what? Unlike other cheats, these won’t mess with your achievements. Just remember to input them every time you reload, okay?
- For Xbox users, to turn them off, just hold: RB + LB + D-pad Left + B + Y for 5 seconds.
- Switching them back on? RB + LB + D-pad Left + A + X.
- PS3 gamers, to power down, it’s R1 + L1 + left button (D-pad) + Circle button + Triangle button.
- And, to light them up again: R1 + L1 + left button (D-pad) + X button + Square button.
Phew! That was a roller-coaster, wasn’t it? Golden guns in Red Dead Redemption are more than just eye candy; they’re a testament to the game’s evolution and player preferences. Whether you’re dazzled by their shine or yearning for the rugged, raw weaponry of the old days, the choice is yours. Happy gaming and remember – in the world of Red Dead Redemption, gold isn’t just a color; it’s an experience!
