Hidden Secrets Many Still Haven’t Found In Red Dead 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 has been popular for a long time, yet there are many hidden secrets players still haven’t caught.
Red Dead Redemption II has been out for over a year now, and its legacy has firmly settled in. And we have to say, it’s…divisive. Some call it a masterpiece, others call it an overrated bore. But regardless, there’s one thing we can all agree on – the map is positively wonderful.It’s beautiful, it’s massive, and most importantly, it’s filled to the brim with secrets. Like all Rockstar games, the open world is rife for exploration, and it absolutely WILL reward the most persistent and exploratory among you.Or you can just read this article.
10 Aberdeen Pig Farm
The Aberdeen Pig Farm is arguably the most well known Easter egg in the game thanks to countless YouTube videos. That said, it is incredibly difficult to find, and we’re positive that more people have seen the interaction on YouTube than found it and experienced it for themselves. The ranch itself can be found in Scarlett Meadows, just north of Pleasance and close to the border of Roanoke Ridge. Not only do you have to FIND the location, but you need to interact with its inhabitants in order to kickstart the whole fiasco.
9 The Mountain Monk
The Mountain Monk is a great little Easter egg that is quite out of the way. If you’re not one for exploring on your own, then chances are that you never came across the meditating monk. The monk can be found just south of the “r” in Grizzlies East, although making your way up the mountain is a lot more difficult than it sounds. Once you actually make your way up, you will be treated to an absolutely gorgeous view. And a monk meditating on the rocks. You can do with him as you please.
8 The Witch Cauldron
The world of Red Dead Redemption II is very funky. Not only is there UFOs that swoop down from the skies above, but it seems like alchemy and witches are very, very real. An abandoned and mysterious witches cauldron can be found in the Grizzlies East region, so you can hit it up either before or after meeting Mr. Monk on top of the mountain!
And yes, you absolutely can interact with the liquid inside of the cauldron. Drinking it will transport you away and completely refill your cores. What a nice witch!
7 The Robot
Finding the robot isn’t really the problem. It’s finding it on top of the mountain that people likely missed! The robot is first introduced in the stranger mission A Bright Bouncing Boy, which can be started in west Saint Denis. Following part II, you can revisit Dragic’s workshop. After doing so and collecting the notes within, you should travel to the northwest Grizzlies near Colter. On top of the mountain you will find the lonely robot, overlooking the landscape below and pondering its role in the death of its inventor. Sad, sad stuff.
6 The Ghost Train
So, yes, the supernatural absolutely is a part of this world. Don’t believe us? Check out the fabled Ghost Train! Unlike a lot of Rockstar myths of this type, the Ghost Train is 100% real, and it is absolutely horrifying. Well, cool AND horrifying, depending on how you look at it. To find the train, you need to go to the northwest section of Lemoyne and ride next to the tracks at about 3:00 AM. Sooner or later, the spooky ghost train will appear. And then you can marvel at its brilliance.
5 The Church For Ants
OK, it’s not really a church for ants. That would be real. But it is a tiny little model church, and it is absolutely adorable. The church can be found in the swamps north of Saint Denis, east of Lakay. It’s not the most welcoming area of the map, but hey, maybe that’s why they needed a church! You can’t really do anything with the church, aside from crawl inside and ponder its mysteries. That said, if you find the vampire and take him to the church’s altar, he will die instantly. Speaking of…
4 The Vampire
Did you know there was a vampire hidden within Saint Denis? Well now you do! Unfortunately, you can’t just stumble onto him – you need to find five pieces of writing scattered around Saint Denis. These writings can be found on random walls throughout the city, and after finding all five, the location of the vampire will be revealed to you.
3 The Swamp Ghost
Then again, maybe that little church was built to ward off the swamp ghost. Because man is that thing scary. The ghost is apparently that of Agnes Dowd. According to her story, Agnes was a young woman who fell in love with a man that his parents did not approve of. It’s implied that her father murdered her suitor, and driven mad by grief, Agnes went on a killing spree before taking her own life. Fun stuff. Anyway, her ghost can be seen wandering Bluewater Marsh between 9 PM and 3 AM.
2 The Bear House
You’ve probably seen images of the Bear House online or in various YouTube videos. But if you haven’t, we don’t recommend that you do. It’ll spoil the wonderful, wonderful surprise. For those who want to be surprised, we suggest you travel to Big Valley in West Elizabeth. A little cabin can be found south of the Little Creek river. Go in that cabin and report back to us.
1 The Crashed Flying Contraption
The crashed airplane is hidden in some dense forest, so we don’t blame you for missing it. This crashed flying contraption can also be found in the Big Valley region, so win win! The point of interest consists of a crashed airplane, the debris scattered across the forest floor, and a skeleton still stuck inside the contraption. Hopefully they died on impact and didn’t suffer. This could be an Easter egg to the first Red Dead Redemption, as that contained a mission that ended in someone’s flight-related death.
The world of Red Dead Redemption II is very shitty.
