Red Dead Redemption 2 Whistle Tips | Horse Reaction To Short And Long Whistle
Whistling is one of the ways to call your horse from a far distance in Red Dead Redemption 2. You need to be aware of the fact that there are a different type of whistle that you can do in Red Dead Redemption 2 and your horse reach to each one of them differently. In this Horse Whistle guide, we are going to show you a different type of whistle and how your horse reaches to it in Red Dead Redemption 2. So let's get started without wasting any time.
Whistle Types And How Your Horse React To It In RDR2
The basic thing you need to know about the whistle in Red Dead Redemption 2 is that a Short Whistle calls your horse to you, and the Long Whistle tells your horse to follow you.
Here's the situation where this Long and Short Whistle type will be helpful to you:
Hunting - this long and short will allow you to use multiple horses during hunting. You would be able to ride the second horse while the first horse will follow you. This will let you have more space for animals.
Red Dead Redemption 2 features an entire system with whistling and horse response time to it which get betters as you increase your bonding levels with your horse. Check out what the official Red Dead Redemption 2 Strategy guide has to say about the whistling and response time:
"The whistle range determines the distance in meters at which your horse will respond to your calls. By default, your whistle range starts at 185 meters. For every 10 bonding XP that you obtain, the range is extended by one meter, up to a maximum of 205 meters at level 1. When you reach level 2 you receive a bonus of 20 meters, taking the starting range for level 2 up to 225 meters. The same increments apply until you reach the optimal whistle range of 350 meters at level 4.
There is an additional (albeit hidden) system that determines your horse's reactivity to your whistle: the response bar. The higher your bonding level, the more the response bar is extended (four segments at level 1, six segments at level 2, and eight segments at level 3 and 4). Every time you tap or hold the key/button to whistle, the bar fills incrementally. Broadly, each tap fills half of a segment at level 1, one segment at levels 2 and 3, and two segments at level 4. The more you fill the response bar, the faster your horse's gait will be when it moves toward you.
In short: You can press the key/button repeatedly to make your horse come to you more rapidly, and this works even better at higher bonding levels."
