Saying that Red Dead Redemption 2 is detailed is an understatement akin to claiming that Kratos is a little bit grouchy. As Rockstar has revealed more and more footage, the question has shifted less from ‘what can you do in this game’ to ‘what can’t you do?’
The list is so gratuitously long, it includes the feature of horses pooping dynamically. Good gracious, what a time to be alive, ladies and gentlemen. Just imagine the wonderment in your grandparents’ eyes when you shriek at them about dynamic horse poop? Don’t even give them context, just say it and leave.
So we’ve taken it upon ourselves to throw some horse poop of our own at the walls and see what sticks, with a rundown of things that you can probably do in Red Dead Redemption 2. Is it farfetched? Or is it dynamic?
Things You Can Probably Do in Red Dead Redemption 2
Pick Flowers and Use Them to Garner Favor With the Locals
One of the most memorable side quests in the original Red Dead saw you gathering flowers for an old man to give to his wife (and gee, doesn’t an article on unforgettable side quests sound like fun?) It was a good start, but why stop there? In RDR2, let’s pick flowers for everyone. Flowers for the sheriff! Flowers for the barber! Flowers for Algernon!
We’ve seen that the NPCs of the old west have their own unique personalities and responses to stimuli, so it’s reasonable to believe that they would be much more receptive to a man who gave them flowers. Perhaps you could even calm a tense situation with a peace offering of wild feverfew? Each character could have their own unique ‘botany bar’ that tracks how many flowers they have received from you. And some of the animals, too! Not all of them, of course, because that would be silly.
