The Winchester Repeater is a weapon featured in Red Dead Redemption.

DescriptionEdit

The Winchester Repeater is the most iconic and reliable of all the repeating rifles appearing in Red Dead Redemption. It uses a lever action system and holds 10 rounds stored in the tubular magazine. One of the most balanced weapons in the game, its medium firepower and high fire rate make it an ideal choice for most situations. Most players will recognize this weapon as the one John is shot with in "Exodus in America".

AcquisitionEdit

Single PlayerEdit

Undead NightmareEdit

MultiplayerEdit

  • The Winchester Repeater is unlocked into the player's inventory upon reaching rank 8.
    • The "Winchester Wielder" weapon challenges are unlocked at the same level. Completion of these challenges turns the weapon golden for the player.

TipsEdit

  • This weapon is fairly useful when it comes to hunting smaller game such as Rabbits, Armadillos, Skunks, Raccoons, etc, as more powerful rifles (Springfield RifleBolt-action rifleBuffalo rifle) will obliterate the target and leave nothing to skin.  If the player is an adequate shot, it can also be put to use hunting birds at long range with either normal shooting or through the use of Dead Eye. It is also especially useful for dispatching cougars.
  • This weapon will function as the repeater of choice during the first third of the game as the player won't get access to another repeater (besides the Repeater Carbine) until Marston reaches Mexico.
  • This is one of the most easily unlockable Golden Guns. It is found at MacFarlane's Ranch in Shootouts and Gang Matches, and will always respawn in your inventory, even after you die. (Only in MacFarlane's ranch)

TriviaEdit

  • While the in-game weapon is based on the Winchester Model 1886, the menu screen illustration differs slightly, depicting a Winchester Model 1873. This follows the "Hollywood West" tone of the game, since hundreds of movies and television programs used later Winchester models such as the Winchester Model 1892, of which over a million were produced through the 1930s, to stand in for their valuable antique predecessors.
  • The Winchester is widely recognized as a symbol of the American West, earning it the nickname "The Gun that Won the West".
  • The Winchester is the weapon of choice for a number of characters and groups in Red Dead Redemption, including:
  • Even if the player purchases the rifle from the Gunsmith in Armadillo the barrel will still be rusty as if it has been used before.
  • When John is shot by this weapon during Exodus in America, it sounds more like the Henry Repeater rather then the Winchester's distinctive sound.
