So. I downloaded the Co-op DLC just now. I've only played it once. I got put into a team of 4 in the pre-game lobby. I chose to be a marksman, and the level was The River. This mission almost felt exactly like the story mission with Irish when you try to cross the Mexican border . Apart from the fact you had three other human players. You have a killchain like any other game type, but your $$$ combined with everyone elses $$$ at the end determines what rank you get (Bronze, Silver, Gold). If you fall, you will stay down until someone revives you. But you can also die whilst laying idle if you get shot or blown up.
The end of The River mission was cool, you have to blow a load of ammo crates using dynamite while the bandits defend them.

I got three trophies after playing for my first time - One for playing co-op - One for getting a gold - And one for not dying.

I thought i should start this little thread, so people can post their personal experiences, and maybe even set up co-op missions with each other in the near future.
Anyway, GO GET YOUR CO-OP DLC NOW!

And later when i get the chance to play again, i will play the rest of them.

How much XP do you get?
DuPz0r
Actually that was one thing i completely forgot to keep an eye out for, i was having to much fun. You still get 10xp per kill, you get 5xp for assists i think but i'm not sure what the bonus was at the end.

I'll have to check it out later.
TreeFitty
Was looking around twitter for confirmation it's out. didn't cross my mind to look here since no one was on before... tongue.gif
DuPz0r
I just checked it at 10am when i woke up and it was on PSN.
TreeFitty
that early? guess everyone is working or sleeping. or on RDR. mellow.gif

Right, i had a few more goes at it now, so i sort of know how everything works. XP is based on the performance of the over-all team. The higher the rank you get, the more XP you get. I know this is pretty obvious, but i thought I'd clarify that. So far I've got Gold ranks in most of my co-op antics and i have got between 300 and 350xp per mission. I have had one silver and i got 210xp. Haven't got a bronze yet, but I'm expecting 100-150xp.
The more balanced your team is the better score you'll get. By balanced I mean, two Soldiers, a Gunslinger and a Marksman. And the better shots you get(headshots) the more overall money you'll collect and add to the total xp.


I've not played all of the co-op mission just yet, i think I've played 5 of them though. My personal favourite so far has to be The Escape, it's pretty long, and has a nice change in playing style throughout.
bOnEs
300XP?? is it adding up your score and dishing it out at the end, or are you earning XP during the mission, and getting 300XP at the end for completing the mission?? that sounds extremely low, IMO... R* seems to not want anyone to level up...
Hardcore Ottoman
WHy is this not showing up for me?
DuPz0r
I'm not sure about xp when paying. All i saw was $10 here, $5 there, but no xp pop-ups...
bOnEs
well, i'll check it out for myself later tonight but, it sounds like i still have no incentive to continue on past the first level 50...

I didn't anyway, i'm not using that shitty bull you get at rank 50 either, i'll stick with my American standardbred. Bloody gimmicks, people think they're being unique by using a bull, but they're just fags.

Yah, I'm not going to bother. I'm like lvl 45 and I lost interest getting to 50 yet alone getting to 50 multiple times go get retarded mounts.
ViceMan
I'll get to 50 just to unlock the Mauser and buffalo bison rifle. I want to try using the Mauser and see if I prefer it over the HPP.
DuPz0r
I really want the retarded bison/buffalo! So i have gone legendary once. But i don't really plan on going any further. Too much effort and time.

I'm level 32 atm, still have a long way to get to 50.
bOnEs
it did take me two years to reach level 10 in GTA IV but, i just don't see myself playing RDR for two years... unless one of these co-op missions turns out to be the shit and me and my friends love it, then i don't see myself playing RDR online much once we near the end of summer... which is why i need to get the 8-man posse trophy soon...
ViceMan
OOOOOK, since installing the DLC: Started the game, chose multiplayer, sat at the loading screen for free roam for 3 minutes, got bored, quit game, restarted, got into free roam, whistled for my horse - didn't come, whistled 2 dozen times - didn't come, entered outfitter, sat at the outfitter loading screen for 4 minutes, got bored, quit.
TreeFitty
a number of people on twitter say the game is freezing up.
DuPz0r
It was fine this morning. I've just started experiencing the same problem now too. Must be a problem with the amount of people trying to co-op. Looks like we're going to be needing another patch for the loading screen hang-ups...
ViceMan
More weirdness, horse still doesn't appear when you whistle, or it appears then suddenly vanishes while running towards you, if you shoot NPCs off of horses the horse disappears before they hit the ground, then the person disappears as they hit the floor. Tesoro Azul was only spawning 5 enemies maximum (actually most times only had three) and after those enemies were killed it finished and gave me a reward of 300XP (not bad for 10 seconds work.) A guy was constantly shooting at me with something and every time it hit, I went to near-death level, then rehealed a bit before he shot me again and I went back to near-death... but I never actually died even though he shot me several times.

So uh yeah...
bOnEs


"are you sure i should be doing this man??"
DuPz0r
Lmao, i reckon the servers are overloaded, which is causing latency problems with everyone. they might have to increase the amount of servers ftw!
ViceMan
I fucking hope so.
Chicago51
I tried it last night after getting the DLC. About 1am GMT and Multiplayer public wouldn't load. I could get into the outfitter or a public room. Just got the red lading screens for about 10 mins b4 i turned it off.
DuPz0r
I'm finding that i have to go to Single Player when i load up. Then go from the pause menu to Private Multiplayer. And then from the select menu to public freeroam for it to work... What a load of shit.

I think we should all just do a private freeroam and do the co-op missions together...
ViceMan
The loading screen problem is pissing me off, I managed to join a shootout that was seconds from being over, then returned to the lobby for the next match, then sat at the loading screen for 3 minutes before quitting the game via the XMB.

I had the invisible players glitch earlier too, I was repeatedly sniping some level 2 guy when he just disappeared, but I was still getting shot myself so he must've been able to see me, when I got killed it came up as if i'd died. I managed to get close to his blip and threw a stick of dynamite which killed him somehow, then when he respawned he was visible again.

The horse still doesn't come a lot of times when you call it and the all the gang hideouts seem fucked, Nosalida was spawning 6 enemies on average.

So I don't think i'll bother playing for a few days.
DuffMan
Okay, I played a bit yesterday evening. I'm not really sure why, but I was getting scores of $2000 and upwards when the rest of the team were barely making $700, but anyways... for the gold medals I got I was getting 1100-1300XP, and for the one bronze I got 300XP. On the whole, not the best option for grinding, but they're quite good fun - maybe just a little bit on the short side if anything. The commentator will get boring very quickly.

I wonder how much more difficult the advanced missions are and whether you get any more XP for them...

Hang on, did you get 1100-1300XP at the end of the mission when the stats screen comes up? Or were the checking to see if you were getting xp while playing? Because I've been getting around the same amount of cash as you ($1600-$2000), but i was only getting around 300-350XP.... I'm going to have another look, see if anything has changed, if i can even get on a co-op game atm!

Holy shit yeh, I've been playing for about half an hour and none of the hideouts have any enemies! you just walk in and get 300xp automaticly! And my horse doesn't appear.

For me the hideouts spawn 3-4 enemies. I'd like to get the free XP by just standing there. mellow.gif

It keeps happening to me at Solomon's Folly...

In The Herd mission when you start sometimes the cows automatically die
ROFL!
ViceMan
It seems if you carry on doing the hideouts with 3-4 enemies they'll eventually decrease to 2 then 1 then nothing, meaning you get the free XP by just pressing the left arrow. I'm currently sitting here doing it, i've got halfway through level 49 just using this trick, although sometimes you'll have one enemy spawn meaning you have to actually be at the game to finish the mission.
DuPz0r
LoL, i just levelled up to 49 using the current glitch.I wonder how long it will take before they fix it...?!
ViceMan
I'm at level 50 and that's where i'm staying, fuck legend rankings. Now i'm going to try and do some more ranked matches and get a golden gun, even though it makes bugger all difference.

I'd have liked an ammo increase as a bonus for reaching rank 50, maybe increase it to half the maximum capacity, and also up the ammo for dynamite and fire bottles to maybe 4-6. But oh well.
DuPz0r
Yeah i'm going to stay at 50 *1. I'm going to do some of the challenges for now tbh.

Hey guys,

Thanks for your patience. We've isolated the issue with the free DLC mission pack that was causing broader problems with Red Dead Redemption's multiplayer, and we've implemented a fix that is now live on both platforms. This update is now in place (you will not be prompted to download anything, but you may need to restart your game in order for it to take effect).

The update also closes an XP exploit whereby players could trigger empty Gang Hideouts and have them register as complete.

Hehe, same here!

Hey Vicey, you wanna co-op in a little while?
bOnEs
...?? what are these glitches your all talking about?? i didn't witness anything strange at all...

these are kind of fun but, they take WAY TOO LONG to beat for the little amount of XP you get... i noticed that gold medals get you a lot more XP but, some of these missions take more than 30 minutes... me and a friend took almost 45 minutes on the river mission mad.gif... and we got a bronze trophy and a shitty amount of XP... i think the most we made was from the pike's basin one, "the herd"... i see some fun with these but thank god the XP is small... that just further cements my reasoning to stay away from the prestige level shit...

i've earned 5 trophies so far biggrin.gif... only two left before i possibly consider the advanced versions of the co-op stuff...

Motherfucker, I almost went home at lunch to get some of this action.
DuffMan
FUCK, guess I missed the opportunity to abuse the glitch...
DuPz0r
I've been waiting in advanced co-op for a teammate for about 20 minutes! There is a new class called No hold barred. biggrin.gif

Ok i got a team of 4. We all got around $1400 each on Advanced Ammunition, and we still only got a bronze. Worth 600xp.
ViceMan
I usually finish with the majority of kills, everyone else is too cautious and constantly running between cover. I finish with $2500-4500 while everyone else ends up with $700-1200. laugh.gif The Ammunition one was fucking hard as the cannons kept blowing the three of us up.
DuPz0r
Gold Medal on Advanced co-op is worth around 1200xp! So this is where the serious XP is at. biggrin.gif
DiO
These are pretty hard when you have retarded teammates that rush in to get kills then die under fire from machine guns. I need to play with you guys.

You're on xbox right...? That's a bit unfair!
ViceMan
I think I was getting 900-1100XP, but being at level 50 you don't really notice it as it doesn't add on to your total.

Back before they reduced the solom's folly hideout ex I was getting that much usually. Got 1800 before from it when I really raped.
