2. Ashe from Overwatch

Ashe from Overwatch character creator in Red Dead Online

User “jansuaco” on Reddit came up with this amazing version of Overwatch’s newest hero “Ashe”. Want to steal this look? The creator was kind enough to provide some tips:

“I like to start everything by turning the face into neutral”, u/janusco says. “Then I’ll select a preset that corresponds to the structure of the nose and jaw. I also recommend making the chin a bit pointy so that your character won’t look like a round grape.”

u/jansuaco notes in their Reddit post that you’re going to need a good amount of gold bars to purchase the pieces of Ashe’s outfit. But, if you’re an Overwatch fan then you’ll know it’s definitely worth it. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Grizzlies Outlaw hat
  • Western Shirtwaist
  • Rifleman Gloves
  • Double Breasted Lapelled Vest
  • Bandito Pants (Black)
  • Dress tie (red)
  • Eufaula Buckled boots

After that, all that’s missing is a horse named “Bob”.

3. Hans

Hans in Red Dead Online character creator

This burly character was created by u/bus10, who also named him “Hans”. Hans looks like he doesn’t take crap from anybody and, as u/bus10 informs us, Hans is from Austria and “he only drinks beer.” Want your Red Dead Online character to look as tough as Hans? Here’s what u/bus10 says you need to do.

From what I can recall its head 12, body build brawny, eyes furrowed, nose neutral, mouth high, jaw squared, ears small, and cheeks neutral;” u/bus10 tells us in the comments of their Reddit post.

You’re also going to need to use the “leftmost skin tone” to achieve that beautiful “Austrian” complexion. For the powerful mustache, try selecting one from a barber in-game if you can’t find one you like in the character creator.

4. Dante

Dante from Devil May Cry character creator in Red Dead Online

If you can’t tell, this look was inspired by the demon-slaying character “Dante” from the Devil May Cry series. But, this character is still amazing looking even without their accurate resemblance to that gaming icon. We didn’t even think it was possible for characters to look like this in Red Dead Online. Here’s another look at this masterpiece.

Reddit user C0NT0RTI0NIST provides a few tips on how to recreate this eye-catching look. You’re going to need to choose “Head #3” in the character creation menu, crank the age down to 18, and then turn off all lifestyles and facial hair options. That should provide you with a good starting point. But, what really makes this look is the long red coat and bare chest underneath– don’t forget that!

5. Danny Lockhart

Danny Lockhart in Red Dead Online Character Creator

Meet Danny Lockhart. She’s the leader of the Lockhart gang according to her creator u/Suterusu-shin on Reddit. She’s also one of the most amazing Red Dead Online created characters we’ve seen.

Unfortunately, u/Suterusu-shin didn’t provide every detail to completely recreate this look for yourself. But, they did tell readers in their Reddit post that it only took about an hour to design Ms. Lockhart. We also know that you’ll need to use head #11, and keep most of the presets neutral when working in the character creator.

In their Reddit post, Suterusu-shin also gives us a list of what goes into the outfit (which to be honest, would look good on any character):

  • Stalker Hat
  • Bandana
  • Richfield Vest
  • Work Shirtwaist
  • Riding Gloves
  • Fitted Pants
  • Preachers Pride Boots
  • Western Rider Spurs.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available for PS4 and Xbox One in our webstore.
