Can you shoot the rope to cut it when they are hanging someone?

I attempted to stop a hanging last night. Are you able to cut the rope with a bullet. or what is the best way to save the person. Thanks, for any help.

You can shoot the rope

Use Dead Eye.
If you own a Mosin Nagant, you can dig your ammo out of a farmer's field in Ukraine and it'll work just fine.

Good luck if you don't have Dead Eye

I play on Expert aiming and its almost impossible to rescue him in time.

It was awsome on the first hanging I saw though. I couldn't rescue the guy but I killed the guys who hung him, looted them, shot down the dead guy and looted him, shot their horses in the head and skinned them and rode off

Dead Eye is really the best way on Expert aiming, but if you notice when you aim, your aiming dot turns from gray to white when you are able to hit your target, so that gives you a bit of an idea of how to aim, seeing as you get a short amount of time to shoot him down.

Without using dead-eye, a shotgun may be your best chance... provided you don't hit the victim.

The behavior of several mods in that topic is completely unacceptable in my opinion and this situation will be addressed. Sorry for the inconvenience. -Lead Mod
