Red Dead Redemption 2: Easter Eggs ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


Red Dead Redemption 2 is an excellent game that has some unique gameplay features. Even though it came out not a long time ago, it quickly became one of the fan favorites games. That's due to the fact that you can ride horses, do heists, and other kinds of things that can "transfer" you into the times of the wild west. 

However, similar to many other games out there, Red Dead Redemption 2 is absolutely packed with Easter eggs for you to find out. This is no surprise considering that the game is made from Rockstar Games, the creators of GTA, Teen Wolf, and other top titles.

Before you dive in and search for the things we will mention here, it is essential to remember that Red Dead Redemption 2 is a massive game in terms of the in-game size. This means that you will have to go all over the play, which could be pretty exhausting, so keep that in mind.

Let's dive in and see which are the easter eggs that we currently know of.

The easter eggs in Red Dead Redemption 2

  • As you can imagine, the easter eggs in this game can be found pretty much anywhere around the map. For example, we even have a reference to the GTA 5 secret mission found on Mount Chiliad with the UFOs. Definitely check it out because you might find some cool things there.
  • There is another easter egg found in the woods - a witches shack. When you go there, you will be able to drink from the cauldron, which will result in total blackout for a couple of seconds. Once you wake up, you will find yourself laying in the ground very close by. Whether or not there is more to it still remains a mystery.
  • If you head over to Mount Shann and follow the big patch there, you will soon come across an enormous skeleton. It doesn't really do much, but it still looks pretty cool. It kind of resembles the one you find during the Bigfoot quest in the first version of Red Dead Redemption.
  • There is another easter egg found on very close to the Donner Falls. You can go there by taking the road to Bacchus Station. Go on this path until you reach a small house - the so-called "Hobbit House." It's a pretty cool place, so definitely check it out.
  • If you go to the Northeast side of the map, you will soon encounter a house that has apparently gone through a meteor attack. There will be a massive crater on the ground, and it's a fascinating sight to behold.
  • Just when you think that you've seen it all, Red Dead Redemption 2 has more to show. Did you know that you can even see zombies here? If you head over to the Bluewater Marsh, you will come across zombie-like creatures called "The Nite Folk." In order to see them, you need to go there when it's dark and look for a big body that's standing on a tree. When you see it, prepare yourself because those mindless hordes will start running at you, and you will have to defend yourself.
    If you survive, bring down the body from the three, and you will find a small letter that explains the Nite Folk.

  • If you want to check out a very grim cabin, head over to the Braithwaite Manor, on the way there, you will come across this small old house that looks like a big cabin. There will be a small window there that you can look through, and you will be surprised what you can find. The easiest way of describing this is as a reference to the Undead Nightmare.
  • There is also a reference to one of the most popular titles out there - the Jungle Book. If you go to explore some parts of the forest, you might come across a big snake that looks very much like Kaa from the story.
  • There is also a big throwback to one of the original characters in Red Dead Redemption called Bonnie MacFarlane. If you decide to go south from the Flatnech Station, you will come across Bonnie's ex-boyfriend called John. You will be surprised that there will be a special letter inside his pocket where he says that he regrets what happened and wants to make things better.
  • If you decide to head north from the Big Valley, you will also find a big plane and a pilot that's hanging from it.
  • Remember when we explained about the big skeleton that you can find? While you are there, you might want to look closely because you can find a bigfoot that's actually speaking. What's more, you can even talk to him, and he will tell you some pretty exciting stuff. In order to do this, you need to go west from the Wapiti Indian REservation and then just follow the birds that will be flying over you until you reach a big cave. Go inside, and you will find the big fella there ready to have a conversation. However, keep it in mind that in order to talk, you need to study a minimum of 30 animals beforehand.
  • Apart from the Undead Nightmare reference that we mentioned above, there is another one which is a little bit harder to find. If you know anything about the Undead Nightmare is that the staff there started after discovering a big green mask. It seems like the devs of Red Dead Redemption know this, which is why they've added it in the game itself.
    In order to find it, you need to go to the general store that's located in St.Denis and look for it inside one of the big shelves there.
  • The Ghost Train - the trains play a significant role in the wild west, which is why we are not surprised that you can find a lot of things related to them in Red Dead Redemption 2. You can all kind of stuff with trains here - riding them, checking them out, or even robbing them, which is what most people will lean towards. However, there is one train that you definitely want to stay away from - the Ghost Train.
    This train goes by the name Lemoyne, and it's kind of hard to find, unlike some of the other easter eggs on this list. The best chance of finding it is if you stay near the Lemoyne sign until it passes through. Keep it in mind that it might take some time, so you need to prepare yourself to wait as much much as it's needed.
  • The following easter egg is probably one of the coolest ones, and it's also relatively easy to find. Head towards the Aberdeen Pig Farm, and you will find a beautiful house there and people inside. They will offer you to go inside and have dinner. Once that's over, and you go to sleep, you will wake up in a very big grave full of other people.
    The cool thing about this easter egg is that it's actually based on a real family that used to do this. They were called "the Bender" and lived in Kansas. 
  • The man-bear pig - trying to explain what this creature looks like is a little bit more complicated than it might first seem. In order to find the ManBearPig, you need to go to the Van horn Trading Post and look for a shack. This grotesque creature is an interesting sight to behold. Just be careful not to get in danger.

  • Apart from the ManBearPig, there is also another enthralling "creation" in Red Dead Redemption 2 called the Dokey Lady. This is basically a skeleton that has the head of a donkey, and it's a neat reference to the first Red Dead Redemption. The "creation" of this creature happened after a glitch was found in the game. Supposedly, the donkey and the lady had to be two different NPCs, but due to some issues, they've mixed into one. The name "Doney Lady" comes from the person that actually found the glitch. 
  • If you want to have more ghosts experience in Red Dead Redemption 2, go to the Roanoke Valley at night, and you can hear some whispers from a man, a woman, and a child. Similar to some of the other easter eggs on this list, this is also a reference towards a real story. Around 600 years ago,  a portion of the first Englishmen that came to the US suddenly disappeared. When an investigation was held, people found out that there was a word carved on a tree "Croatoan."
  • Nosferatu - some of the best easter eggs in Red Dead Redemption 2 can only be accessed if you do an individual quest. Needless to say, this is definitely more time consuming than just going out and finding the surprise, but it's absolutely worth it. If you go to St. Denis,  check out all trees there until you find a carved message saying Nosferatu. In case you haven't already guessed, this is another cool movie reference.
    To find Nosferatu (he is a vampire), you need to find five messages like this. When he shows up, he will want to fight you, but he's not that hard to take down. When you kill him, don't forget the loot - you will get a cold ornate dagger.
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 is not a game where you can find the technologically advanced things. Of course, this is expected because the game is held during the "wild west" times. However, there is a very fresh easter egg that involves a guy named "Marko Dragic," who is supposedly "created" to resemble  Nikola Tesla.
    To unlock this easter egg, you need to do a quest that's only available when there is a thunderstorm. If you get the chance to do it, wait for a couple of days and then head back to Marko's lab. When you go there, you will find him dead, and the robot that he has been working on has escaped.

  • The wolfman - this easter egg can be found in Roanoke Valley (the place with the ghosts). However, in order to find the wolfman, you need to be there when it's dark, and there is a full moon. When you get there, listen carefully, and you will hear a man that's "howling." He won't want to have anything to do with you, which is why he will start running immediately after he sees you. Needless to say, you need to chase him down.
    Unfortunately, there is a moment where you might have to kill his wolf family in order to get to him. This is the part where most players give up because that's not really something that they want to do. However, if you do it, he will show up and briefly ask you to leave him alone.

These are among the most popular easter eggs you can find in Red Dead Redemption 2 right now. Of course, this list will change because the game is still relatively new, and there are many new things being discovered daily. If you are interested in finding out more about them, be sure to track the easter eggs down and let us know what you've found.
