    SIDE TIP: Upgrade your living quarters in your camp ASAP. It will cause other gang members to contribute more money to the camp.

    Don't loot dead bodies in towns!
    Shot at a bunch of rival gang members, because they shot first. So I then went to loot and people were like "nah man, I know he tried killing you, but looting through his dead body is too much." Damn marshalls were on me quick.

    ALWAYS bring a horse revive with you (atleast 1). I guarantee you'll need it.

    Listen Dave, I respect your choices, but that camp will be tricked out immediately because I try to play every game I come in contact with like it's a city builder.

    I feel like every single tip here could be shortened to "take it slow". Oh, and "eat chewing tobacco".
    Seriously though, I liked the video. Now to move onto the "review" (read: video thesis).

    In the first big fight you get in to (mission start's with the guy who is tied to the tree, in horse-shoe overlook - think it's Kiren?)
    I win the battle against the O'Driscoll's - the others leve and i was in the house emptying the chimney and wondering if i should take the dubble barreled shotgun, hanging there.
    While doing this the WANTED sign comes on. I rode away from the place, but slowly so i might find out who told the police !!
    I just said unknown !!
    So be sure to take the loot, then you can ride back.
    Anyone else who had the same experience ??
    Sorry about my English 👋
