Top 5 easter eggs in Red Dead Redemption II
Rockstar’s Read Dead Redemption II is one of the best games of 2018. It is filled with an amazing story and incredible amounts of detail. This includes dozens of bizarre or mind-blowing secrets just waiting to be discovered. Here are the top five easter eggs in Red Dead Redemption II.
1. The Hobbit
Should you come near Donner Falls on your travels, be sure to take a look at the Hobbit house built-in the side of a hill. It is clearly a reference to J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series and a lot of fun to come across.
During the mission “The Noblest of Me and a Woman”, your Arthur Morgan is rewarded with some unique weapons. The last one you receive comes with an interesting description: “Canis Canem Edit”. This is a reference to Rockstar’s Bully, seen as though it used the same title as on the gun for the game release in Europe.
3. Jungle Book
Players looking for a Jungle Book reference should travel towards the ‘o’ in Lemoyne when looking on the map. In the forest there is a specific tree with Kaa the snake hanging from it. Does anyone want to try shooting it?
4. Come fly with me
This is a reference to anyone who has played the first game in the Red Dead Redemption franchise. In the first installment, John Marston helps build a flying machine with a “less fortunate” outcome for both the pilot and the machine. In this game players can find a similar device with a similarly dead pilot inside just north of the Big Valley.
Another reference to the first game can be found near Mount Shann. There you should follow the mountain path until you come across a huge bigfoot skeleton. This a nod to the Bigfoots you accidentally hunted in the previous game. We’re not crying, you are.
