Red Dead Redemption 2: The Smell of Grease Paint – Find Magnifico ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


Red Dead Redemption 2 is an action-adventure game that is made from the same devs that introduced Grand Theft Auto to the world.  The story was set in 1899, or a.k.a the wild, wild est. The game mainly focuses on following John Marston, who is a very well-known gang member during these times.

There are many cool quests in this Red Dead Redemption 2 that will make you hooked. One of them is called "The Smell of Grease Paint," and you can start doing as soon as you reach Chapter 2. In order to begin, head over to Valentine and look for a place called Horseshoe Ridge. Although this quest has a couple of parts, it's still pretty fast to finish it. 

Let's take a look at what you need to do.

The Mission

After you go to the place and you pick up this stranger quest, you will have to go to a place called Van Horn Trading Estate. It is located on the northern part of the map, so head to that direction. Once you get there, look for a place that looks like a saloon and enter inside. Upon doing this, you will hear a conversation between two people. Listen to it until the end and wait for the cutscene to begin.

When that's over, you will have to fight with one of the people that spoke there. Luckily, he is pretty east to be taken down, so don't worry too much. It shouldn't take more than 2 minutes to take him down. After you win, there will be another cutscene where a woman will ask you to find Magnifico.

Finding Magnifico

To find this pesky guy, you have to travel south a little bit until you reach the Kamasa River. Once you go there, you will basically "trigger" part 2 of The Spell of Grease Paint quest.

When you arrive there, look for a camp near the coast of the river. Upon approaching it, there will be a cutscene, after which you have to follow Magnifico through the river as he tries to cover himself with the smoke. However, there will be a moment where he will drop more smoke, and your "hunt" will become more difficult. In order to continue, you have to do a new objective - check every single smoke cloud.

Once you're ready, you will continue to chase him until you eventually reach a tree. He will be up there, but you won't be able to bring him down. There is a brief moment of talking there, but when it's over, he will continue to run until you eventually catch up to him.

This is when you will see the last cutscene of this mission, and you can finally get your rewards. In order to do so, you need to go to a city called Saint-Denis.

This mission might be a bit more annoying for some of you, but it's pretty cool, so we advise you to try it out.
