Red Dead Online player is spending their time spreading Christmas spirit as Santa Claus

Players have a ton of freedom in Red Dead Online, and while many have chosen to attack anyone they encounter, one player has decided to roam the West spreading Christmas cheer as Santa Claus.

Encounters between players have been interesting, to say the least; immediately after Red Dead’s online mode released, one streamer even got lassoed and drug behind a horse the first time he met another player.


But, there have been examples of positive interactions as well, as shown by the recent clip of a player rescuing another just before they fall to their death over a waterfall.

Now, according to a post on Reddit,  it seems there’s a player roaming the wilderness dressed as Santa Claus handing out skins and big fish to any player nice enough not to kill them and their donkey.

According to the post, Santa has requested any players he encounter to “not hog tie him and kill his donkey because that is very mean and makes him sad.”

This Santa has obviously seen some things.


Red Dead Santa even let the poster, horticult, snap an image of them, and they look pretty much like you would expect a Wild West Santa Claus to look.


Only PS4 players have the chance to encounter Red Dead Santa, unless there’s a brave and dedicated player willing to bring some Christmas spirit to Xbox One.


Red Ded Redemption cosplayers become real-life Arthur & Sadie Adler

Two incredible gaming cosplayers came together to create their own versions of Red Dead Redemption’s Arthur and Sadie Adler — and the photos look like they’re straight out of the game.

The first Red Dead Redemption game came out in 2010 and immediately earned mass appeal, with the 2018 prequel keeping the franchise alive and fans flocking to the servers of the Western adventure game.


As with every popular game, film or TV show, though, fans have all different ways of honoring their favorites, and cosplayers are no exception.

Arthur and Sadie are a favorite of Red Dead fans.

We’ve seen some incredible cosplays in our time, but this one is really something special, with ‘maul_cosplay‘ creating his flawless take on protagonist Arthur Morgan.


That’s not all, though, as he also recruited female cosplayer ‘msskunk’ as Sadie, bringing the fan-favorite couple to life.

“RDR2 is my absolute favorite game and I think Arthur and Sadie should spend more time together,” maul said in his Instagram post. “That’s what the photos are about. Arthur and Sadie enjoying life and spending some quality time together.”

Arthur and Sadie’s relationship was an important one in Red Dead Redemption, and it would have been interesting to see their story developed further, and fans are definitely interested in seeing what occurs between the two — and the cosplay really showcases that. Not to mention, the outfits and setting are literally spot-on, and it’s almost impossible to find any difference between this and the characters themselves.

Both the photos and the cosplays themselves came out looking incredible, as if the characters were lifted right out of the game. Heck, you wouldn’t be laughed at for mistaking this for game art rather than just a photo of two cosplayers paying homage.

This isn’t the first of maul’s cosplays to make waves, with some brilliant looks taken from the likes of Assassin’s Creed and Borderlands 3’s Zane.

If you’re looking for great gaming cosplays, maul and msskunk might be one of the best places to look, since their attention to detail is sublime.
