Red Dead Redemption 2 players discover new trick we kinda wish we hadn't seen

Red Dead Redemption 2 players discover new trick we kinda wish we hadn't seen

Our poor eyes!

Avert your eyes if you’re of a nervous or squeamish disposition; although this “trick” might be useful to some, it’s not easy on the eyes.

There are lots of ways to spend your time on the wide-open plains of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Some choose to adventure for hidden bunkers of loot; others explore previously blocked off areas of the map.

And some do this.

The trick here is not really a trick, but rather like burning man with an equestrian twist.

Are you ready to explore the good, the bad, and the downright weird in Red Dead Online?

In a video that Redditor Chemical_Stomach_347 shared, we can see a dead horse get lassoed, strung up, and set on fire.

It sounds awful, yet, as one player pointed out, it’s one of the “least horrific day[s] in Valentine”.

Another user posted, “This is what happens when Rockstar refuses to give us new content, people make horse piñatas in Valentine.”

Despite many fans taking this as just another quirky feature of the game, others are concerned about the behaviour exhibited by the players who decided to turn this horse into an exploding candle.

“Yeah excuse me, what the f**k,” asked Mr_McShane. Let’s be real here, that's a legitimate question to ask when presented with whatever this activity is.

Not only are they confused about what they’ve witnessed, they’re also uncertain why anyone would take the time to even attempt to do this.

You could argue that whatever happens on the streets of Valentine stays in Valentine, but normally people are headed to the saloon or starting a fight.

“I didn't realise RDR2 Online was worse than GTA V Online,” commented meyogy. Neither did we.

This is in stark contrast to players who are discovering a horse secret they wished they'd known sooner to avoid taking a hoof to the face.

Clearly, there are two kinds of players: those who watch the world (and horses) burn, and those who befriend the horses.
