Rifles are a weapon category in Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2). They can be separated into two sub-categories: repeaters, and rifles; both of which are covered in this page. 

Rifle magazines can vary drastically, depending on the type of rifle, for example: the Rolling Block Rifle is much better for dealing with targets at a long range, therefore their magazines hold less ammunition, whereas a Henry Repeater holds more ammo and is better suited to fending off multiple enemies at a medium-long range. These are the most efficent weapons as they deal high damage at any range, and carry sufficient ammo to deal with multiple hostiles. While larger and less mobile, what they lack in mobility, they make up for in accuracy and lethality. 


Rifles vs Repeaters

There aren't many differences between the two, however the few that stand out are highlighted below:

  • Repeaters normally carry more ammo in magazines, and having slightly higher fire rates.
  • Rifles deal slightly higher damage, and are more suitable for jobs, from a far distance.
