Yeah. It had barely anything in it besides repeatable timed missions per day, and some bare online PVP modes.

The thought of going back to the online on this game makes me feel sick to my stomach. I don't find it enjoyable at all and don't think I can stomach the grind to level 50. Will have a look once the update hits but I'm probably going to just grab the last few easy trophies, finish the story missions and call it a day. We'll see though.
Hope for the best but expect the worst.

If the gold armor makes you stronger instead of your normal "die instantly to a headshot from someone 30 yards away" than that might be a pretty fun game mode. As it stands, just sounds like another of the "everyone fights over ____" that all the other game modes are.

I literally didn't have fun until I was a few hundred XP from hitting level 50. Had to help my wife with something for a minute, somebody (named slcmobbin) hogtied me and was carrying me to their horse. I broke free, fired my shotgun in the air to warn them off, and all of a sudden, a 5-year-old is screaming at me that that was unacceptable, and killed me. I got the last few kills I needed to hit 50 hunting him across St. Denis, and after the second one, he was screaming "WHAT DID I DO? I NEVER DID ANYTHING TO YOU!", never trying that parley button, until he finally quit.

I almost want to fire the game back up just to grief him again. He joined my list of nemeses, along with the kid from AC: Black Flag who had the 30 minute rendition of just the chorus of "Moves like Jagger".

Before that, it was just a tiresome grind. Someone showed me a place in southwest St. Denis, where the train tracks split north of the docks. There's a boat next to a building with a long dock. Kill a worker, hide behind the boxes down the docks, and just funnel cops down the dock to their death. Even had it set up so I'd get 5 silver medals at the same time, and used that glitch for faster XP. I had horseback kills, headshots, repeater kills, deadeye kills, and one other I forgot, up to 499 kills, saved and reloaded, then I'd just get one kill, see the 1000xp message, hold the PS button, close the app, restart, and I was back at 499 kills. Got 1000xp every 2-ish minutes. Still took forever.
