Red Dead Redemption 2 players discover incredibly grim, realistic animal detail

Red Dead Redemption 2 players discover incredibly grim, realistic animal detail

Red Dead Redemption 2 players have found that the pigs in the game can devour people, just like in real life (unfortunately).

Video games can be a great source of real, actual knowledge, even outside of the likes of Dr Kawashima's Brain Training.

I can’t count the amount of times that I’ve picked up a random piece of information from playing a game, and Red Dead Redemption 2 players have also been busy educating themselves with a genuinely horrific real-life fact, thanks to a disgusting in-game detail related to one of the animals found in Rockstar Games' 2018 action-adventure title.

Take a look at some of the funniest wins and fails from Red Dead Redemption 2 below.

I hope you’re prepared, because you won’t be able to un-read this, and it’ll put Peppa Pig in a whole new light forever. Shared to Reddit by user Technical-Win2277 is this awful clip of a drift of pigs (that’s actually what a group of pigs is called, fun fact) descending upon a dead body in order to devour it. “I didn't know pigs actually ate people, pretty crazy stuff,” the user wrote.

Others were quick to chime in: “Hence the term ‘feed 'em to the pigs’. From what I understand, pigs tend to eat everything that makes up the human anatomy, bones and all. A great disposal service. I've never actually seen this in game though so neat find!” Moonbeam-Woman wrote. “I mean, pigs ARE omnivores. They will eat literally ANYTHING. Interesting that they even implemented it in the game, [though],” another said. “Remember, the chances of a pig eating you are low, but never zero,” added PrimeAutobotXx.

Well, that’s truly disturbing. Previously, players also discovered that shooting someone in the face in Red Dead Redemption 2 results in their jaw flying off - you can actually see it happen in photo mode. Yikes. Surely there becomes a point where a game can be a bit too detailed?
