Despite a large section of the community holding a funeral for Red Dead Redemption 2’s online element, it seems that the game’s single-player experience is still going strong thanks to modders.

With massive mods including things like a huge overhaul of the game’s economy and the addition of Yakuza-esque brawling styles still being pumped out, these valiant modders are clearly still fighting to make Rockstar’s wild west adventure relevant.

Now, they’ve brought a means of controlling time itself into Arthur Morgan’s arsenal, possibly allowing him to prolong his life for enough time to get some more good punches in on Micah.

You’re in slow motion, boah!

The mod in question is called ‘Slow Mo On Demand’ and is the work of modder westerngamer5, who’s dabbled with time before, in addition to having changed all of the game’s text to the letter A.

This time, they’ve given you the means of slowing down time in dead eye-esque fashion with the push of a single button, which is, along with the rate at which the slowing down occurs, is configurable.

Naturally, this could have a number of uses in combat, possibly aiding you in your quest to avoid catching a bullet or giving you a few more seconds to put a tree in between yourself and the angry alligator whose slumber you’ve just disturbed.

On the other hand, if you’re having a wholesome singalong around the gang’s campfire on a beautiful moonlit night, your new power might help you to extend those precious moments when you can forget about the threats facing you and your mates for just a little bit longer.

It could also help you reduce the regularity with which you find yourself crashing your horse into a tree and getting flung several feet into the air, only to land in the mud.

After all, baths can be expensive and if you’re going to keep your mount looking swanky via mods like WickedHorseMan’s ‘EQUUS’, you really should make an effort to keep your no claims bonus intact.

So, chill out, get ready to take things a little bit slower, and make sure to follow us for coverage of the wacky worlds of Skyrim and Elden Ring modding.
