As it turns out, the Pinkerton Agency still exists, and they’re not too happy with how they’re portrayed in Red Dead Redemption 2.

This probably comes as no surprise to anyone (and especially not to the people still playing the game), but Red Dead Redemption 2 is yet another hit for Rockstar Games. In the first two weeks of sales, RDR2 sold 17 million copies, which is more than the original Red Dead Redemption sold over the entire course of history.

So yeah, the game is making a lot of money. And some people portrayed in the game as perhaps a little villainous are looking to get in on the action by using the courts.

Last December, roughly 2 months after the game’s release, Pinkerton Consulting & Investigations sent a cease and desist letter to Take-Two Interactive, Rockstar’s parent company. In the letter, Pinkerton accused Take-Two of profiting off of their name and demanded undisclosed royalties for the company’s inclusion in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Pinkerton plays quite the pivotal role in RDR2. Andrew Milton and Edgar Ross play Pinkerton agents sent to track down Dutch’s gang. Along the way, they do a bunch of villainous things, like killing several gang members in a brutal firefight.

According to The Verge, Take-Two responded to Pinkerton’s letter by counter-suing, arguing fair use and protection under the first amendment. As a huge part of America’s history (at one point, Pinkerton agents were even hired to protect President-elect Abraham Lincoln), the use of Pinkerton in RDR2 is simply part of the game’s historical setting.

Take-Two further alleged that Pinkerton was simply attempting to steal their profits, arguing that Pinkerton agents have appeared in popular media throughout history. Not only did Pinkerton agents appear in the original Red Dead Redemption, but also in various Western films such as The Long Riders, American Outlaws, The Legend of Zorro, and 3:10 to Yuma. A former Pinkerton agent is the main character in BioShock: Infinite too.

“[Pinkerton] cannot use trademark law to own the past,” states Take-Two in their legal response.

Pinkerton president Jack Zahran fired back at Take-Two with a letter that expanded his complaint to include an inaccurate or unfair portrayal of Pinkerton in RDR2. “Pinkertons are seen shooting horses, shooting guns and firebombs into buildings where women and children are present, and as violent villains in the community. History tells a different story,” Zahran wrote in his letter.

While Pinkerton has proved pivotal throughout American history, it hasn’t always been on the side of right. As government police agencies were adopted, Pinkerton was forced to take security contracts that were used in union-busting strategies in New York and Chicago. One such incident known as the Homestead Strike saw Pinkerton agents cause the deaths of 7 striking workers.

Discussions between Pinkerton and Take-Two are ongoing. No court date has been set.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is an incredibly detailed game. Small elements in the game-world make it feel truly alive. For instance, I will never forget the moment when I picked up an old shotgun expecting to use it. The problem was, it was rusty. I couldn’t use the gun until I’d cleaned it with gun oil. It’s small things like this that make this game something truly special. However, if you want to conquer all the challenges in this massive open-world game, you will need the proper tools to do it and a rusty shotgun is not the answer.

The guns in RDR2 are numerous. At the time of writing, there are close to 60 different weapons on offer. These range from throwing knives to high powered rifles. Acquiring some of these weapons will be difficult but they are essential to making sure you can tackle some of the tougher enemies in the game. If you are going to brave the Wild West, follow this list of the 10 Best Guns in Red Dead Redemption 2 to make sure you have the best gear at hand.

10 Schofield Revolver

The Schofield Revolver is no joke as far as revolvers go, and though it doesn’t have the greatest aim, it more than makes up for it with power and accessibility. This gun can be unlocked relatively early in the game and is cheap at only $84, making it a necessity for any aspiring outlaw. You can also upgrade it for even more power. Upgrades can make this revolver a great option, even when moving into late game territory.

9 Carcano Rifle

Snipers are hit and miss in Red Dead Redemption 2 (pun absolutely intended). Good ones are hard to come by and even then, their usability requires very specific circumstances. You certainly don’t want to get caught in a close quarters standoff with one. That said, as far as sheer power goes, the Carcano Rifle can’t be beaten. It is incredibly accurate and has enough force to take down anything in the game. Hit rank 50 in online play to unlock this bad boy.

8 Springfield Rifle

The Springfield Rifle is great for its longevity. It’s relatively cheap and therefore can be accessed early in the game but it has good enough stats to carry you through to end game. It has high damage when compared to similar guns, though it is slightly less accurate than, say, the Bolt Action Rifle. Players can acquire this gun by completing the Gaptooth Breach Hideout, or it can be purchased for as low as $150 with the proper honor rating.

7 Algernon’s Revolver

If rate-of-fire is something you value when it comes to choosing your weapon, look no further than Algernon’s Revolver. This rare and unique gun has one of the best firing rates of any revolver in the game. It’s a great gun and a beauty as well (although that’s less important than firepower, of course). This gun can only be unlocked in chapter 4 after completing the Duchess and Other Animals challenge.

6 Midnight’s Pistol

Another great option for beginners is Midnight’s Pistol. This gun is relatively easy to earn and packs a wallop compared to other starting weapons (but not too much for a beginner to handle, of course). All you need to do to acquire this gorgeous gold-plated pistol is to complete the Gunslingers side quest. Kill Bill Midnight and the gun is all yours.

5 Volcanic Pistol

The Volcanic Pistol does more damage than any other pistol in the game, making it very desirable – for obvious reasons. It also has a high rate-of-fire and solid reload times. For just $150, this is also a very affordable option and therefore a great option for newer players. It’s also a great throw-back to the first game with better stats so we can’t recommend it enough – even if it’s not quite good enough to earn that number one spot.

4 Sawed-Off Shotgun

Alone, this gun is just ok. It only holds two shells and it’s very inaccurate, but still packs a punch at close range. What makes it even more deadly (and worthy of this spot in the ranking) is that it is possible for a player to dual weild with it. With one of these bad boys in each hand, you are sure to do some major damage. You can also pair it with some of the other guns on this list for maximum lethality.

3 Repeating Shotgun

Though dual-wielding sawed-off shotguns is fun, the best shotgun you can get is actually the Repeating Shotgun. As far as sheer damage goes, this is gun is a beast. You will also find decent accuracy here and the ability to carry up to 6 slugs at one time. It has a hefty price tag but if you can afford it, the Repeating Shotgun is sure to strike fear in the hearts of your enemies.

2 Semi-Automatic Pistol

With a hefty 16 bullet clip and a great firing rate, the Semi-Auto Pistol is one of the best guns Red Dead Redemption 2 has to offer. Its power is evenly balanced with its functionality and it can be dual-wielded for some serious devastation. You will love the speed of this pistol and though it may seem pricey, it is certainly worth the purchase price.

1 Litchfield Rifle

While not the fastest or most accurate gun in the game, the Litchfield Rifle has a devastating amount of power and speedy firing rate. Many consider this gun to be the best repeater in the game and it is definitely a must-purchase. It features a great balance of stats that will be helpful in almost all situations in the game. If you are looking for an all-around great gun, look no further than the Litchfield Rifle.

These are some of the best guns that Red Dead Redemption 2 has to offer. In the end, however, every cowboy is different. Luckily there is so much weapon variety featured in the game, you are sure to find something that will match your specific playstyle. Happy hunting!
