Red Dead Redemption 2 has a satisfying hidden 'boss' a lot of you never saw

Red Dead Redemption 2 has a satisfying hidden 'boss' a lot of you never saw

Who missed this on their first playthrough?

Turns out a large chunk of players will have missed a hidden “boss fight” during the game’s final missions.

Chapter 6 of Red Dead Redemption 2 is the gold standard to ending a game, with a crushing amount of emotional weight that’s broken even the strongest of resolutions.

During the final stretch, players are given a choice, head back and grab the money, or escort John Marston to safety. I’m sure everybody knows what happens when you escort John, but many players probably haven’t seen what happens when you go back for the money.

That’s what happened with one player on Reddit, who wanted to know if they should “go for the money just for the experience and to differentiate from the norm?”

They were met with a resounding yes from those who’ve played the other ending, teasing a “mini boss fight with Micah,” which apparently feels really satisfying after all the atrocious things he says and does in the main game.

However it’s not for everyone, as I said before many players won’t have seen this ending as they just couldn’t bear to leave John by himself, plus you wouldn’t get the beautiful shot of Arthur looking out at the sunset.

One player said they’d “always done the honourable thing in each of my playthroughs, no matter how bad I wanna try out the bad ending, I just can’t muster up the courage.”

Another highlighted what a bad idea it was on Rockstar’s part to name the option “Return For The Money,” rather than “Get Revenge On Dutch And Micah,” which more players will have probably gone for.

Luckily Red Dead Redemption 2 is a highly replayable game, so the next time you head through it maybe give that alternate ending a go, and finally give Micah what he deserves.
