#GamingBytes: Five best 'Red Dead Redemption' Easter Eggs
Red Dead Redemption 2, by Rockstar, is one of the finest open world games currently available. Imbuing a Western theme, the game is ripe for exploration. Developer Rockstar, encourages the fans to roam the world, that took much effort to create, by adding several interesting Easter Eggs all across. We are going to save you some trouble by presenting the five best easter eggs.
Over the misty mountain high
When gamers visit east of the Donner Falls in Red Dead Redemption 2, they will find a nice homage to the masterful work of J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings. A house resembles the one where Bilbo Baggins resided. Although, it does not have the same round green door as Bag-End, the resemblance to our favorite house in the Shire is uncanny.
One for the 'Jungle Book' fans
Jungle Book fans must remember the chilling coy snake, Kaa. I remember being scared witless by her as she drew Mowgli in, only to try and strangle him. While playing Red Dead Redemption 2, if you want, you can check out the homage paid to Kaa. Near Lemoyne, on the map, the snake can be found near the 'O', hanging from a tree.
The legend of Bigfoot
Bigfoot features heavily in Rockstar's game. The skeleton can be found north of Strawberry town, on Mount Shann. More interestingly, you can talk to Bigfoot, by studying 30 animals. Then head to the river west of Wapiti Indian Reservation before a flock of birds lead you to an inaccessible cave. There, you can converse with someone out of sight, 'too big' to make friends.
One for the franchise fans
Players who are familiar with the Red Dead Redemption franchise might remember Bonnie MacFarlane. She was one of the most prominent side characters. The second game introduces her ex-husband, who can be located south of Flatneck Station. He carries a letter which has details of all his regrets and what he had hoped from their marriage, making this one of the saddest easter eggs.
The stranger reappears in the game
Red Dead Redemption players will remember the apparently immortal Strange Man who gave protagonist John Marston numerous quests. The second game has an eerie reference where you can enter his cabin in Bayall Edge and see an incomplete painting, which becomes clearer with the game's progress. Suddenly the Strange Man appears behind the protagonist, Arthur, in the mirror but disappears when you turn around.
