Red Dead Redemption 2 easter eggs and where to find them

Fancy a rendezvous with a vampire or spotting a UFO? Here are some of RDR2's best Easter eggs.

There are more easter eggs hidden around Red Dead Redemption 2 than in a giant bunny's basket. Rockstar undoubtedly loves its Easter eggs, from letting you play as Bigfoot, and Teen Wolf in GTA 5, to teasing players with something more elaborate like GTA Online's Chiliad mystery mission.

In this guide, we've detailed some of the best Red Dead Redemption 2 Easter eggs for you to discover. If there are any that we've missed that you think should be included on this page, do let us know!


Red Dead Redemption 2 easter eggs

Easter eggs come in all shapes and sizes and can reference just about anything in Red Dead Redemption 2. Here are some favourites that we've found.

UFO Mystery

So far, we've uncovered that GTA 5's Mount Chiliad mystery is back with theRed Dead Redemption 2 UFO hunt. Make sure you've got your X-Files music lined up for this mission.

For this Easter egg, you'll get to explore a run-down shack and catch a glimpse of an alien spacecraft, if you're lucky.

Witches Shack

Speaking of bizarre finds, there's also a witches shack in the woods complete with a bubbling cauldron. Should you choose to drink from the cauldron, you'll blackout for a while and wake up close by.

Bigfoot Skeleton

This is a bittersweet Easter egg to be found near Mount Shann. Our pals at Arekkz have made a video detailing where to find this easter egg and a few others, which is linked below, but if you follow the mountain path around you'll come across a ginormous skeleton which is a throwback to the Bigfoot quest in Red Dead Redemption.

Hobbit House

If you head back towards Bacchus Station near Donner Falls, you'll find yourself a Hobbit House. It's lacking a circular door and there's a strange sun icon above it, but it does seem like a respectful nod towards Tolkien's classic.

Meteor Crash Site

In the Northeast of the Red Dead Redemption 2 map, you'll find a meteor-struck house. We assume it was a meteor as there's mangled bodies all over the floor and a crater in the ground, so who knows what this mystery is about.

The Night Folk

The Night Folk, who are a lot like zombies, can be found near Bluewater Marsh. You'll need to visit the location at night, obviously. There will be a body hanging from a tree and after staring at it for a few moments, the Night Folk will start running at you from the trees, so it's best to have a weapon on hand. Once you've dealt with these creepy folk, shoot down the hanging body to find a letter telling you about the Night Folk.

Creepy Cabin - Undead Nightmare reference

Keeping things macabre for a second, there's also a creepy cabin down near Braithwaite Manor. It's a tiny little cabin, almost like an outhouse, with a crescent moon cut out and chains all around it. Put the camera into first-person and you can have a wee peek through the hole, but a creepy lady that resides in the cabin might grab you.

It's a clear reference to Undead Nightmare as you can see her face is a bit of a mess and she's spouting gibberish.

Kaa the Snake

For all you Jungle Book fans out there, you can find Kaa the snake hanging from a tree near the "O" in Lemoyne on the map.

Bonnie's Ex-Partner

There's a throwback to RDR1's Bonnie MacFarlane in Red Dead Redemption 2 for keen fans of the series to find. In the original game, Bonnie is one of the last of her family and feels she must look after the homestead and take care of business.

We didn't know that she was married before she ran into John, and you can actually meet Bonnie's ex just South of Flatneck Station. In his pocket, there is a letter to Bonnie, full of regrets and promises that will never be fulfilled. I'm not crying, you are!

Flight Gone Wrong

There's also the remains of a pilot still strapped into their flying machine like the one Marston helps a man build, which you can find North of Big Valley.

Vampire

During night, a vampire lurks the streets of Saint Denis looking for victims. To encounter this Easter egg and meet witht he vampire for yourself in Red Dead Redemption 2, you'll need to find and interact with five pieces of graffiti across Saint Denis.

We detail exactly where to find all five pieces of writing in our guide on how to meet RDR2's vampire.


Some players also claim to have found an Easter egg that's a hidden message about long overtime hours and crunch at Rockstar, but we'll leave the interpretation up to you.
