In Red Dead Redemption 2, Arthur Will Cry When His Horse Dies If the Bond Is Strong Enough

A Reddit user noticed an insane detail in Red Dead Redemption 2, a game that is already known for its ridiculous attention to detail.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has some of the best attention to detail I have ever seen in any entertainment product I have seen. Of course, Red Dead features the mainstream stuff that you can find in other big titles such as characters shouting their lines when at further distances or running out of breath when speaking if you are doing some physical activities. However, there is some stuff that goes way further in its attention to detail such as horse testicles shrinking in cold weather. No, seriously. Well, players are still finding out more and more hidden details the more they play it.

The Reddit user “SycSemperTyrannis08” pointed out an insane and sad detail that I wished I had experienced. SycSemperTyrannis08 had a level four bond with his/her horse. The horse died during a mission and he/she noticed that when Arthur went back to grab his Saddle off the horse, He was crying while picking it up. Now that is certainly some attention to detail that I haven’t seen in many games.

Had a level 4 bond with my horse Hidalgo and he died during a mission. I went back for my saddle and Arthur sobbed for a while after picking it up. That’s some detail, right there. from reddeadredemption

Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently available on Xbox One and PS4. The game’s multiplayer mode, Red Dead Online, just launched earlier this week, so if you have yet to pick up the game and want to jump into one of the best games of the year, you can purchase the game through Amazon right here.
