How to Hog Tie, Lasso and Tie NPCs to Horses in Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally here, and with it the chance to get up to all kinds of wild west shenanigans. Doing so requires the player to know how to use their arsenal of cowboy tools and equipment though, so today we’re here with some tips to help you figure out how to hog tie, lasso and tie NPCs to horses in Red Dead Redemption 2.
How to Lasso
To execute any actions with a rope, the player must first select it from the weapon wheel. To do this, press and hold the L1 button. Afterward, move the analogue stick toward the lasso to select it and equip it by releasing the L1 button while it’s highlighted.
This will equip the player with the lasso, and when the player aims by pressing the L2 button they will begin to spin the rope above their head or to their side.
The rope can be thrown at people or animals with the R2 button, and if they are successfully hit with it, they will than be snared by the Lasso.
How to Hog Tie
From here, the real fun begins. After a person or animal is snared by the lasso, players must hold down the L2 button to maintain their grip, moving toward their target with the left analogue stick.
After they get close enough to their snared target, they can then press and hold the Circle button (if on PS4) or B (if on Xbox One) to hog tie and incapacitate them.
If the player would like to drag an NPC behind them instead of hog tie them, they can forgo hog tying them in favor of dragging them behind their horse as it runs by holding down L2 after they mount their steed again. Fun!
Carrying NPCs or Animals on the Horse
From here, the player has a few options of what to do with their tied-up targets.
This is done by lifting them up, carrying them to the back of your horse and holding down the Square button (PS4) or X button (Xbox One).
Once the player reaches their destination, or if they just get bored and want to see their bound riding companion left to the elements, they can remove hog tied NPCs from the back of their horse by pressing and holding the Square or X buttons again while behind their horse.
Hopefully this tells you all that you need to know about how to hog tie, lasso and tie NPCs to horses.
