Red Dead Redemption: How To Turn Off Golden Guns

Red Dead Redemption: How To Turn Off Golden Guns

Here’s how players can toggle golden guns on and off in Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption.

Red Dead Redemption has been re-released on PS4, with PS5 backward compatibility, and on the Nintendo Switch. Fans who primarily play on Xbox consoles can still buy the Xbox 360 backward compatible version. While there has been some backlash over the lack of a PC release, players looking to replay John Marston’s journey through New Austin can finally do so on the console of their choice.

Returning and first-time players may be surprised by John Marston brandishing shiny golden weaponry at the start of the game. Some fans dislike this as it doesn’t fit with the immersive story mode. However, players have the option to toggle these weapons off and on depending on which version of Red Dead Redemption they are playing.

Players that own the Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition or the re-release should have the golden guns as part of the DLC. The original version of the game included them in a separate Golden Guns Weapon Pack. This DLC will re-skin all weapons in Gold excluding thrown weapons and John Marston’s hunting knife.

If the player has the newer versions of Red Dead Redemption or the Golden Guns Weapon Pack installed all they need to do is open the start menu. Click on options then the config menu. Find the golden guns option and toggle it on or off.

The original pre-order bonus makes John Marston’s Cattleman Revolver and Repeater Carbine golden. These weapons don’t have any differences in damage but do increase the amount of fame gained while using them.

Rockstar eventually unlocked these weapons to all players so anyone playing an older version of the game will start out with these guns. Players need to input a code to turn them off. Take note that these codes do not disable achievements like other cheats and need to be applied every time the game is re-loaded as they are not saved.
