Red Dead Redemption 2 features over 50 unique weapons and even more customization options

Red Dead Redemption 2 is almost here, and more information keeps on coming out. Today, Rockstar detailed the firearms in the game.

Red Dead Redemption 2 features a lot of unique weapons, and they can be tailored to suit your style. There are dozens of weapons available and you can customize them to your heart's content.

With over fifty unique usable weapons available to Arthur, each with a massive range of options for customization and a wide selection of different ammunition types for improved accuracy, range or damage, detail, depth and choice define every aspect of Red Dead Redemption 2.

While the sheer number of firearms is impressive, the customization is where the game truly shines. It will be interesting to tinker with the sights and scopes on certain weapons. Hopefully it'll be as in-depth as what's offered in the Far Cry series.

With a myriad of customization options ranging from visual upgrades like new metals, woods, varnishes, and engravings to performance upgrades like new barrels, grips, sights and scopes, you can design an entirely unique weapon that looks and handles exactly the way you want it to. Every weapon's performance varies in terms of damage, range, fire rate, accuracy and reload speed.

After a robbery goes wrong in the town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal, and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals or loyalty to the gang who raised him.

Red Dead Redemption 2 should launch on October 26, 2018 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 systems. The game runs at "4K Ultra HD" on Xbox One X.
