I'v finished the game and have been in many duels. I usually win all of the duels but i still don't understand how it works. There is this one guy who wears a green shirt, has a hat on and wears gloves who is usually in Armadillo and i can NEVER beat him.

I draw and completely paint him with markers and he fires once and i die. If i place 1 marker on him he still wins. What am i supposed to do? How do i force my weapon to fire?

Can you shoot his gun? mellow.gif Or when you paint targets, do you put them in the best spots (his head for example)?

you have to probably let him win the "draw first" thing, then paint your targets... but, make sure you pull the trigger button as soon as your done painting targets... if you can shoot before him, you win...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

I always leave it right till the last second until I draw, and by then they haven't even half filled their meter.

I must have been pretty baked when I went through the duel tutorial, I really have no idea how to do it. I won my first duel by disarming the guy, but when I was called out for cheating in a card game, I was slaughtered. I had no idea what to do. Anyone want to walk me through the process in 360 terms, I'd appreciate it...

I normally just press lt to draw, move the right stick and hit rt (I think) a ton to paint them, then i think it auto fires.

sometimes it's done fuck all for me though and not fired, so I'm unsure. The tutorial wasn't much help and you cant play it again. There's times where i painted a target completely and Marston just didn't fire.

When it says draw you press L2 to draw then move your target and press R2 to place shots, once the meter's filled (assuming yours is filled before theirs) you fire and annihilate them with several headshots, at least I always do. happy.gif

don't hesitate to fire early... after you paint the targets, press the fire button immediately... i've fired my gun after painting the targets and won the the duel because i beat him to the punch, and my shots landed in deadly spots... if you fail to press the fire button, you might fail the duel... the only ones you probably won't fail are duels against weak opponents...

don't just assume the system will automatically shoot for you... you have to be quicker than your opponent so, use all the tools to your advantage...

The key to winning duels is timing. Soon as you start the duel push the left stick down to move your hand a little closer to your gun. When your opponent yells draw either hit the left trigger or push up on the left stick(which ever you prefer) to draw your gun. When painting targets, mark them when the crosshairs turn white. If you can fill up your bar (the blue one) before your opponent, you win.

Also if you can manage to disarm your opponent without killing him by targeting his gun, you'll get an honor bonus.

Once you mark enough targets and your bar fills, you fire automatically. I'm not too sure how to fire earlier though.

Well yes, I for one would like to fire with only one shot, it doesn't take 6 shots to the face to kill someone, so why waste those 5 extra bullets? Plus it'd make us look less of a noob, still shooting at him as he crumples and hits the deck with half of his head missing.

I think every duel i've done i've had to place at least 6 shots, and I always aim straight for the face, except for the side mission where you have to disarm him.

I've gotten great at duels, but yes, mine usually involve 6 shots to the face. I really don't mind though. Think of it as a lesson in brutality.

I also shot someone in the nuts 6+ times.
