How to Get Drunk in Red Dead Redemption 2
Here’s everything you need to know to get drunk in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Getting drunk in Rockstar games is always a blast. Grand Theft Auto IV mastered drunk physics, with drinking sessions rapidly turning into shootouts and a nap in the gutter. Red Dead Redemption 2 takes players to the wild west, with plenty of saloons to visit, general stores to pick up booze, and lots of locals to get into fistfights with once you get drunk. However, the ability to actually get drunk isn’t as simple as drinking away your sorrows over and over again whenever you want.
In comparison to games like the original Red Dead, you’ll need to drink a lot more if you want to get your character drunk. The easiest way to do this is to head to the nearest Saloon in any major town, and then interact with the bartender to get a shot of whiskey. Each shot costs you 50 cents, which is a pretty small price to pay.
As you continue to down shot after shot, you’ll notice your health core start to drain in the bottom left corner of the screen. And after about five or six shots, your screen will start to get blurry, and your character will start to feel a little woozy. If you continue to drink after this, your health core will be drained all the way, and the game will warn you that an empty health core will prevent you from getting health regen. At this point, you should eat something to bring your health core back up.
But if you insist on continuing to drink even after your health core is drained, you’ll be able to take a couple more shots before the bartender finally shoos you away. Your health core will still be drained, and you’ll need to eat some food to regain your strength.
In short, if you want to get drunk in Red Dead Redemption 2, you can. But make sure to drink responsibly and don’t neglect your stomach.
Outside of getting drunk in Saloons, Red Dead Redemption 2 also features an early game main story mission where Arthur will be able to drink his cares away in one night. If you don’t want to waste your money just to see the effects of getting drunk in the game, just wait till you get to that main mission, and you’ll get to see it anyway.
