The detail between Arthur and John’s Aim

In the latest Red Dead Redemption 2 unearthing, a Reddit user and fan of the title has pointed out that both characters from the game aim completely different.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Showcasing two seperate images of Arthur and John holding a repeater, we can see that Arthur keeps his eyes open while aiming the gun while John squints with one eye closed which is something that most people would practice in the same situation.

A Mistake or Intentional?

You may think that Rockstar just forgot to add in a closed eye when Arthur uses the gun and who would really notice anyway?

Well, players certainly do notice. A few Reddit commenters replied under the post with one pointing out that aiming with your eyes open is actually good practice and means that “you aren’t cutting off half of your vision” and also helps reduce eye strain.

So it seems that Arthur’s eye-opening technique could prove that he is the most skilled out of the pair. What do you think?
