A Hogtie is a type of rudimentary ligature that involves tying together the limbs of an individual or animal. It can be used to restrain people in Red Dead Redemption.

DescriptionEdit

To perform a hogtie, the player must first obtain the lasso. This requires completion of the mission Wild Horses, Tamed Passions.

In-game, the player can make use of a hogtie in order to restrain and transport an outlaw during a bounty mission. To hogtie, Marston makes use of the same length of rope as a lasso.

A hogtie will not reduce the player's Honor or give him a bounty in most cases, even when applied to a civilian.

If the player turns their back on a hogtied hostage and goes back to them they may notice them missing, as it is possible for them to escape, and in some circumstances can attack the player.

A Random Encounter may involve a kidnapper carrying a hogtied woman away on his back, and the player is given the choice of stopping the criminal and untying her or let them pass without doing anything.

TriviaEdit

  • Despite how many times Marston loops the rope around the victim's limbs (twice for arms, once for legs), there are always at least 4 at the end of the animation.
  • Despite how many victims Marston hogties - and without cutting them free - he will always have an infinite amount of rope.
  • When the player equips the knife and kneels down over a hogtied victim and presses the attack button, an animation will play in which Marston cuts the hogtied victim's throat. This dishonorable method of killing will give the player an additional -50 Honor loss, ontop of the -50 (for killing a civilian) or -100 (for killing a nun or law enforcement officer), unless the Bandana is equipped.
  • In Undead Nightmare, Marston is unable to cut a victim free because he has a torch in place of a knife but there is still the Tomahawk which is sharp like a knife.

GlitchesEdit

  • When carrying a hogtied person, then sitting down at a campfire, the hogtied person appears to be going though John Marston's head.
  • Starting a mission while carrying a hogtied person will make them disappear.
  • XboxLogo Sometimes when picking up a person the hogtied person will stay on the ground and the game will act as if the player is still holding the hogtied person. The player will not be able to put him/her down.
  • At Aurora Basin, if the player tries dropping a hogtied victim at the end of the pier, they will glitch and then become stuck next to the pier. The only things the player can do are: run on the spot, jump and aim with a weapon.
