Last week, Rockstar released it’s first “significant” update and plan on implementing more through the coming months. Today marks the additions of a weapon and a new Free Roam event.
The Evans Repeater has been added to the Wheeler, Rawson & Co catatlouge. It’s great at medium to long range distances, has a high bullet capacity and a high rate of fire. You also have customization options like Stocks, Sights and Wraps.
New Free Roam — Fool’s Gold
In Fool’s Gold, you’ll battle other players to wear the Golden Armor. Taking down opponents while wearing it earns your points, as well as taking down someone wearing Golden Armor.
In addition to Fool’s Gold, there’s five Free Roam events regularly taking place:
- Cold Dead Hands: Fight for control over a target for the longest amount of time.
- Competitive Challenges: Compete to get the highest score in a given, randomly-selected challenge within a set time limit (currently includes Bow, Headshot, Horseback, Longarm, and Sidearm Kill Challenges).
- Dispatch Rider: Posses compete to be the first to deliver a horse to the assigned destination.
- King of the Castle: Compete to gain and maintain control of the castle area by staying alive inside of it — whoever controls the active area for the highest percentage of the event time wins.
- Master Archer: Compete to score the most points by hitting the most targets as accurately as you can within the time limit.
You can access any Free Roam event by accepting the alert pop-up invite. If a Posse leader accepts an invite to a Free Roam, all members of the Posse will join that event. Rockstar has stated they will add new Free Roam Events.
