Rockstar games have announced several balance changes to Red Dead Online after the first full week of the beta, including increased payments for missions, reduced weapon prices and more.

Read Dead Online went live last week and players wasted no time in descending into complete and total anarchy, one Twitch streamer even got lassoed and drug behind a horse by the first player they met.

Since then, players have been coming up with ways to deal with griefers, like hogtying them with some explosives and while the updates don’t address PvP issues, it does make it easier to get some dynamite.

The changes are aimed at “creating a more balanced, fun and rewarding overall experience, across all modes and missions,” according to Rockstar.

They include an increase in payments for free roam missions and events, Showdown Series and more. Prices for weapons purchased from the catalog or from a gunsmith have been reduced, players who already purchased some of these weapons will have the difference credited to their accounts.

While players still might have to encounter outlaws who just want to watch the world burn, at least weapons to deal with them will be a little more affordable.

Two incredible gaming cosplayers came together to create their own versions of Red Dead Redemption’s Arthur and Sadie Adler — and the photos look like they’re straight out of the game.

The first Red Dead Redemption game came out in 2010 and immediately earned mass appeal, with the 2018 prequel keeping the franchise alive and fans flocking to the servers of the Western adventure game.

As with every popular game, film or TV show, though, fans have all different ways of honoring their favorites, and cosplayers are no exception.

Arthur and Sadie are a favorite of Red Dead fans.

We’ve seen some incredible cosplays in our time, but this one is really something special, with ‘maul_cosplay‘ creating his flawless take on protagonist Arthur Morgan.

That’s not all, though, as he also recruited female cosplayer ‘msskunk’ as Sadie, bringing the fan-favorite couple to life.

“RDR2 is my absolute favorite game and I think Arthur and Sadie should spend more time together,” maul said in his Instagram post. “That’s what the photos are about. Arthur and Sadie enjoying life and spending some quality time together.”

Arthur and Sadie’s relationship was an important one in Red Dead Redemption, and it would have been interesting to see their story developed further, and fans are definitely interested in seeing what occurs between the two — and the cosplay really showcases that. Not to mention, the outfits and setting are literally spot-on, and it’s almost impossible to find any difference between this and the characters themselves.

Both the photos and the cosplays themselves came out looking incredible, as if the characters were lifted right out of the game. Heck, you wouldn’t be laughed at for mistaking this for game art rather than just a photo of two cosplayers paying homage.

This isn’t the first of maul’s cosplays to make waves, with some brilliant looks taken from the likes of Assassin’s Creed and Borderlands 3’s Zane.

If you’re looking for great gaming cosplays, maul and msskunk might be one of the best places to look, since their attention to detail is sublime.
