10 More Red Dead Redemption Secrets
Now that you’ve all played this game to death, many of the secrets and unlockables are common knowledge, but here is some choice cuts that you probably don’t know about this wild western.
1. US Marshall Uniform
If you are wearing the US Marshal Uniform (unlocked by completing all US Gang Hideouts within a single 24-hour game-time period) then the US Marshals won’t come looking for you when your bounty reaches $2,000.
If you get killed by the US Marshals then a secret scene will be triggered that shows your character languishing forlornly in a prison cell. Before too long you will be released back into the wild, though.
You can cut the throats of hogtied people by equipping your knife, kneeling down next to them and then locking on and pressing the ‘fire’ button.
The game seems obsessed with people urinating. Various peds you encounter in the wild will answer the call of nature and, if you follow one of the dogs around town then they too will take a crafty leak.
5. Bear Anchoring
Some beasts just cannot be tamed. If you try to lasso a grizzly bear while on horseback the best is too large to be dragged and instead it’ll act as a burly anchor rock and cause you to ride around in circles.
6. Who Even Thought Of This?
During the ‘Flowers For A Lady’ Stranger mission you will encounter Billy and his, er, radiant wife. After completing the mission, go back into his shack at Stillwater Creek, approach Annabel and greet her. Then deliberately run into the shelf behind her for hilarious results.
7. Drink While You Think
Red Dead Redemption features the best ‘being drunk’ we’ve ever seen in a game. Order enough drinks at a saloon and Marston will stagger backwards before bumbling around like a tanked-up Jack Sparrow. Brilliant.
Life on the open road can be lonely, so why not drag a companion along? Simply lasso an innocent passer by – a nun perhaps? And then charge off full pelt with them dangling behind moaning.
If you visit the deserted mansion at Tumbleweed at 18:00pm then you’ll see a large flock of bats fly over the house. Unfortunately, you can’t shoot them – seems them bats are too quick even for Dead Eye.
10. That's Mine!
What’s the matter? Horse thieves swiped your horse from under your nose? No problem, as they ride off, simply whistle for your trusty steed and it will rear up and buck the filthy robber off its back.
