Differences Of Dead Eye In Online Mode

Does Not Slow Down Time Online

Red Dead Online Dead Eye

Unlike the Dead Eye mode in single-player RDR2, Dead Eye in Red Dead Online does not let you slow down time. It does, however, trigger abilities & buffs from an Ability Card loadout.

Activates Buffs From Ability Cards

Dead Eye in Red Dead Online activates a series of abilities & buffs that affect your damage, health recovery, defense, etc. These are skills useful during precise moments in the gameplay - shootouts, horseback chases, etc.

Ability Cards, save for the free ones you initially get, are purchaseable or unlockable in your loadout menu. This is the only way you can activate & equip them.

Activated The Same Way As RDR2

Though the effects are quite different, you can activate your Dead Eye the same way that you can normally use it in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Dead Eye Tips For Online Mode

Equip Specific Ability Cards For Certain Missions

It's best to always check what kind of mission you're going into and changing your Ability Card loadout to match it. This will help you quickly accomplish your mission in an easy manner.

Use Dead Eye During Important Moments

It's best to use Dead Eye when you need it - during shootouts or battling enemy players. This saves your gauge for more important moments in your mission.

Level Up Dead Eye Gauge & Ability Cards

Your abilities will get stronger the more you rank them up and your Dead Eye mode will last longer if you keep leveling it up. It's best to rank both your Dead Eye gauge and your Ability Cards to make the most of them.
