Rockstar Games developers like to slip weird and wonderful Easter eggs into their various titles, and Red Dead Redemption 2 is no exception to that rule.
If you fancy channeling your inner alien hunter, you can actually find a UFO, or alien spaceship, in the latest installment of the Red Dead franchise – here’s how to find it.
If you enjoyed the Grand Theft Auto 5 UFO mystery, you’ll like this one just as much, and getting started is as simple as opening your map and locating a small cabin (Hani’s Bethel) near a pond slightly north of Emerald Station.
Make your way to that location and head into the shack, where you will find a group of dead cult members and various other trinkets. Most important, though, is the mysterious note that is located on the table near the fireplace.
The note includes a message that hints at when you can return to the location and witness an out-of-this-world event:
“AT THE SECOND HOUR UNDER THE HALF MOON, BY THE GREAT LOVE AND GRACE OF OUR SAVIOR, KUHKOWABA, VOYAGER OF TIME AND GALAXIES. WE CAST OFF OUR MORTAL SHELLS SO HIS VESSEL CAN TAKE OUR SPIRITS TO THE PROMISED REALM, TO LIVE IN PEACE AND POWER UNTIL THE TWO THOUSANDTH YEAR, WHEN WE WILL RETURN FOR A NEW CHOSEN AND WORSHIP ONCE AGAIN AT THE PEAK OF MOUNT SHANN. IN HIS LOVE, WE REJOICE ALWAYS.”
The next stage is a point of contention – some people insist that there’s a requirement to head to Mount Shann and investigate a rock circle, while others seem to have found a way of avoiding it.
YouTuber ZacCoxTV shows that simply returning to the shack at 2 a.m seems to result in a UFO hovering above the map for an hour or two. It’ll fly above you for a while but won’t interact with you at all:
