Our Red Dead Redemption 2 Online Name Your Weapon guide explains how the mode works and will be updated with tips and strategy advice soon.

A number of details about Red Dead Redemption 2's Online component have been datamined ahead of the official launch later on today, and one such mode goes by the name of Name Your Weapon.

This free-for-all mode has individual players or teams competing to earn points, with bonus points awarded for using a trickier weapon to land the killing blow.

More detail will emerge when the online beta officially goes live a littler later on today (for players with the Ultimate edition, that is), but in this guide we're outlining everything we currently know about the game mode.

Once we've been able to get stuck into the beta for ourselves, we'll be updating this article with plenty of tips and strategy advice for coming out on top.
