Red Dead Redemption Title Update 1.02, Now With Less Grief

Here is the list of fixes included in itle Update 1.02 from Rockstar’s official RDR blog:

This update contains the following new anti-griefing measures for Multiplayer Free Roam:

• While in Multiplayer Free Roam, if a player achieves a kill streak of 6 or more without dying, they will become a Public Enemy and receive a $1000 bounty.
• While in Multiplayer Free Roam, if killed three times by any human player and each death is within 80 seconds of respawn, the victim is given the option to respawn away from the area.

This new title update also addresses the following issues:

• Players now have the ability to swap shoulder buttons L1/L2, R1/R2.
• Players now have the ability to save game with cheats turned on.
• When playing the game with Region set to Asia, incorrect button prompts were displayed.
