Almost every time I play free roam RDR I get accused of 'Modding' in one form or another. I've played this game since day one and I'm not the easiest person to kill. I NEVER play in a posse because I get my kicks from hunting large posse's on my own, and have done since the first day I put the game into my Xbox. As a result I have a inbox full of abuse and accusations of cheating. RDR has a reputation for this that I don't really think it deserves. Obviously you get people In various glitches all the time, but that's different and very easy to spot. I can honestly say that I've only ever come across one gamer I suspected of modding to gain a subtle advantage. . . 'Nitrogirl' on Xbox Live. . .I pretty much consider myself up there with the best because there are few who have bettered me (I know I sound like a dick but bare with me while I make my point). RDR is not riddled with modders. You may find the odd one but its quite rare . It's riddled with 5th prestige LvL 50 ten man posse's, that have no lengthy experience of fighting on there own. They think just because they have that badge above their head, they automaticly have a much higher skill set than somebody of a lesser prestige, and therefore cannot be beaten by that person. I've never prestiged on RDR for this very reason. The havoc you cause when you roll in with your basic LvL 50 star above your head and clear an entire posse out to the hills on the outskirts of armadillo is hilarious, their ego's take a hit and they resort to accusations of cheating. It only takes one person to say the word over Xbox Live and the rest of that posse will jump on the 'cheater' band wagon to keep their feeling of invincibility intact. That's just Psychology. So if your that guy that's always in a large group shouting ''MODDER!'' ''CHEATER!'' at the guy hid behind a rock with 10 rolling blocks aimed at him by your team mates, Just have a think. . .That guys been going 'him against the world' for fun the last three years. . .you've rode around on your fucking zebra with 10 men behind you stealing kills where you can. . .You just don't have the skillllzzz ;)
