But really, all you’re doing is leaving yourself vulnerable to attack. Thanks, Rockstar. “Wow, that’s %u2014 thanks so much.” Unless you were fortunate enough to use some kind of gold bar exploit, money is extremely hard to come by early on in Red Dead Redemption 2. Your share of gang robberies is pretty paltry. It seems like anyone you hold up yourself is poor as hell. And if you want your character to wear some nicer clothes or shoot some nicer guns, you’re going to have to spend that dough like a big boy. Which is why it’s wholly frustrating to be robbed totally blind without being able to hunt down the jerks who stole from you like the animals they are.
