How to Change Camera Angles & Turn Off Killcam Slow Motion in Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 is full of stunning views, animals to hunt, rival gangs to kill, and money to be made. There’s also a bunch of other side activities to keep you busy for hours on end. While the standard camera angle tends to be suitable for spending most of your time in the game, you might also be wondering how to change camera angles in Red Dead Redemption 2. Fear not, we’ve got that covered, as well as how to turn off the killcam slow motion setting in case it’s just not doing anything for you.
How to Change and Cycle Camera Angles
Similar to Rockstar’s last game, Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption 2 can be played in both third-person and first-person camera views. There are three options you can choose from: first-person view, the standard third-person view where your character is in the middle of the screen, and another third-person angle where the camera zooms in closer to your character.
The three angles can be cycled through at any time by simply pushing in the Touchpad on PlayStation 4 or tapping the View button on Xbox One multiple times.
Holding down the same input will enter the Cinematic Camera mode, which pulls the camera farther away from your character and pans around for a more cinematic view showing off the vast countryside. If you’re looking to try and get some stunning screenshots during your time in Red Dead Redemption 2, you’re going to want to make the most of the Cinematic Camera mode. You’ll also want to make use of Red Dead Redemption 2’s photo mode, too.
While Red Dead Redemption 2 is certainly a visually stunning and cinematic title, sometimes the killcam slow motion can get a little too annoying. So here’s what you need to do to turn it off so the action never has to slow down in the middle of a gunfight again.
How to Turn Off Killcam Slow Motion
Whenever a firefight is about to end, the last kill is often shown as a close-up view as the bullets whiz through the victim in slow motion. The effect was used heavily in another Rockstar title, Max Payne 3. It’s here once again in Red Dead Redemption 2, and while it certainly adds some pizazz to your gunfights, it can also be a little annoying if you’re just wanting to blast through your enemies quickly and move onto the next mission.
While the effect is a cool little addition, it might not be so welcomed after the hundredth kill. Simply pause the game, select Settings, then Display, and the “Kill Effects” option can be toggled on or off.
That is how to change camera angles and turn off killcam slow motion in Red Dead Redemption 2. For more tips, tricks, and general information on everything you need to know in Rockstar’s wild west adventure, be sure to check out our Red Dead Redemption 2 guide wiki.
