Red Dead Redemption 2’s revamped Dead Eye system offers precision nut targeting

Dead Eye returns to Red Dead Redemption 2 with some new features

October 1, 2018 Red Dead Redemption 2’s Dead Eye system has at least one major new feature.

Rockstar has an impeccable attention to dong detail in Red Dead Redemption 2, and cowboy penises aren’t just for show – they’ve got a gameplay purpose, too. The revamped Dead Eye system offers a number of new features, including the ability to highlight enemy weak points. That includes both traditional head and heart shots, and yes, it also highlights genitals.

Sadly, we haven’t yet heard about what the consequences for nut shot over-indulgence might be. Maybe you’ll develop a reputation for penis destruction, or maybe the newly sterilized population of the Wild West will start a support group or something.

Thanks (or “thanks”) to Nibel on Twitter for pointing out the giant, red dick highlight in today’s gameplay trailer. Somehow phallic news keeps showing up whenever Rockstar promotes Red Dead Redemption 2, and even horse testicles will show the benefits of that frankly upsetting attention to detail.

The Dead Eye system was one of the core hooks of cowboy gunplay, and penis-targeting aside, it offers pretty similar options here. Primarily, you’ll be able to enter slow-motion and mark targets for some quickly-executed sharpshooting.

The Red Dead Redemption 2 release date is set for October 26 on consoles. Follow that link for much more info, and join us in impatiently awaiting official confirmation of a PC version.
