Red Dead Redemption 2 fans are only just noticing the game's biggest plot hole

Red Dead Redemption 2 fans are only just noticing the game's biggest plot hole

Red Dead Redemption 2 fans can't work out how the gang travelled to Guarma from Saint Denis.

We’re in the midst of a Red Dead Redemption drought. When it comes to Rockstar Games, Grand Theft Auto VI may be the priority right now but please, don’t forget about your rootin’ tootin’ franchise, Rockstar. Red Dead 3? A spin-off? There must be something in the works - the appetite is certainly there from fans.

In fact, fans already have big ideas about who they’d like to star as the protagonist in a possible Red Dead Redemption 3. Can you imagine how incredible Red Dead 3 might look? Five years on and Red Dead Redemption 2 is still one of the best-looking games out there. While we’re in the midst of this drought, fans are revisiting Red Dead 2. One player managed to successfully bring an NPC back to camp, while another worked out exactly how much money the gang left in Blackwater. Today though, fans are just now noticing one of the game’s biggest plot holes.

Take a look at some of our favourite Red Dead Redemption 2 wins and fails below.

Reddit user imnotangelo_ took to the site to write, “How did the gang make it to Guarma from Saint Denis? It shouldn’t be geographically possible.” The accompanying map explains why. The San Luis River draws to a close on the left-hand side of the map. As you travel right, it becomes the Lannahechee River where, you guessed it, it rounds to a close on the right-hand side of the map, so it’s a solid point. How did the group make it to Guarma?

Yeehowdypartner replied, “It was in the script,” while MyNamesRMG added, “Arrived in Guarma for the first time yesterday and I was like, ‘Yeah sure, couple of folks in a boat and one mf swimming all magically end up on the exact same island on the exact same spot’. That doesn’t remove any of the magic of the story, but this specific part was a little bit too much for me.”

Plasticbluepalm joked, “They used the out of bounds glitch”. In all seriousness though, the map has clearly been cut so we’re simply just not seeing the route. It’s thought that the Flat Iron Lake extends further south, eventually draining via a river into the Gulf of Mexico which could explain things.
