Red Dead Redemption 2 Players Are Losing It Over Spooky Easter Egg

The Red Dead Redemption universe is full of surprises. It feels like there’s always going to be something new to learn, and we are living for it.

Reddit users have discovered one particularly spooky Easter egg and it’s probably one of the coolest things we’ve ever seen.

Take a look for yourself…

This is one of the coolest Easter Eggs I’ve ever seen in a game. from r/reddeadredemption

Yes, that is a full-on ghost train.

If you want to trigger it yourself, head to the train tracks going out of Rhodes (towards the edge of the Lemoyne border just below Old Greenbank Mill) and make sure it’s 3am.

One gamer commented: “Like to create my own storylines for this. Like a man that robbed and killed an entire train of people (Arthur). But no one ever caught him and a little boy was the only survivor who lived to tell the story. And now there’s a ghost train that rides the tracks but never makes it to its destination ..”

While another added: “Maan o man. My jaw keeps dropping on this game. Again and again and again.”

If, like the rest of the world, you’re currently loving Rockstar’s latest offering of Red Dead Redemption 2, then you’ll probably want to know about the secret map.

In one of the missions, you are required to go the alleyway next to the Saint Denis church and find five mysterious writings scattered across Saint Denis. If you haven’t found them all yet, then we’ve got them here for you. Lovely, aren’t we? Special thanks to GameRant for this one too.

The first clue

If you go to the building just above the second “N” in “Saint Denis” on the Red Dead Redemption 2 map, you’ll see the writing written on the wall of a red building with white doors.

The second clue

Then, pop over to the Saint Denis market place where the local Fence and Trapper are. The writing is located in an alleyway behind a gate. Just look for the stacked barrels.

The third clue

After this, you’ll want to head over to the Butcher and General Store on the southwestern side of town. Go to the other side of the shops, and it’ll be there underneath an overhang.

The fourth clue

Head directly north of the post office, and you’ll find this clue tucked away in a corridor.

The final clue 

The fifth and final clue is pretty close to the fourth. It’s on another wall of the same building. You need to go north to get to it. GameRant says that you’ll probably have to run around the building to reach it.

Once you’ve got all of the clues, you get a special map that points you in a vague direction. Basically, you need to head to a secluded alleyway to the west of the General Store and Butcher.

IMPORTANT NOTE: the event doesn’t come into effect until it’s the night. So advance time at the local saloon. Then, head to the alleyway for it all to be revealed.

If you want more, then cool – here you go. You can also go to Mexico.

Red Dead Redemption 2 prides itself on its expansive world and the almost-limitless exploration available thanks to its giant map, but you can go even further than the developers intended thanks to a glitch that’s been discovered.

A YouTube channel by the name of ZacCoxTV discovered a way you can actually get yourself to Mexico thanks to an outside-of-the-map glitch.

Posting a video of the successful attempt to get to Mexico, ZacCoxTV fans have gotten to speculating that there might be a reason why the glitch is possible…

One user commented: “This is definitely going to be DLC there is no reason to have it here besides this.”
Another speculated the same, writing: “Maybe Mexico is supposed to be a part of a future update/DLC. Rockstar just did a bad job on blocking it off until then 😂”

Although it doesn’t seem like Rockstar would leave a giant half-finished clue like this in a game that really excels when it comes to its level of detail, it definitely is a head-scratching discovery.

Mexico isn’t the only ‘secret map’ that’s been discovered in the game, as you can also find yourself in Guarma if you play your cards right. Again, you can watch ZacCoxTV’s video to find out how.

What do you think about these ‘secret maps’? Is Mexico going to be DLC for the future of Red Dead Redemption 2, or is this something else entirely?
