Well pardners if you, like myself, are still moseying through the mountains, valleys and swamps of Red Dead Redemption 2, then you know that there is plenty to discover out in them thar hills. Those discoveries range from the hysterical to the dang-right chilling.
One of these finds was fairly early on just outside of Valentine. I noticed an abundance of vultures hanging out, and decided to investigate. I found a lone torso hanging from a bridge’s structure with his appendages and intestines strewn about. A decapitated head was nailed to a pole with a rolled-up note stuck his mouth. After unrolling, I discovered that it was a piece of a map and headed out with a mission to get to the bottom of this.
For those familiar already familiar with the game, you know the open world is freakin’ massive. Searching for three corpses is both addictive and a total needle in a haystack situation. It didn’t help that, I was so against looking the locations up online. Certain gaming situations are more rewarding when finding em organically, at least it is for me.
So, after some exhaustive searching I was lead to two other ghastly murder scenes that mirrored the first. Each with dismembered bodies and a decapitated head loaded with a piece of the map.
When pieced together the map lead to a storm cellar filled with pieces of several unfortunate victims. While searching the cellar poor Arthur Morgan is snuck up on and knocked out.
When Arthur wakes, the slim, snide, Edmund Lowery Jr is standing above Arthur explaining away his manifesto, and what he has planned for the unfortunate cowboy.
With a few quick moves, Arthur is able to turn the tables and either kill or hogtie Edmund.
It’s a cool side quest that was the first of the more horror related Easter eggs spread throughout RDR2.
