Red Dead Online has become an anarchic free-for-all since it’s release, with stories of over-aggressive players killing and ruining everything in sight; but one player decided to give another rampaging user a taste of their own medicine.

Towns in Red Dead Online are major hot spots for attacking other players, if players have items or goods they want to sell or upgrades they want to purchase, towns are usually the only place to find those things.

So, after this player was attacked while they were just trying to enjoy some stew, they decided revenge was a dish best served hot, right at that moment.

In the clip, posted to Reddit by user Retarded_Soup, the player was walking down the street in Valentine, eating some stew and pretty much minding their own business, until another player charges down the street, lasso in hand ready to cause some trouble.

They manage to lasso the stew-eater and attempt to finish them off, but the player isn’t going down that easily.

After escaping, they take out their own lasso and hogtie their attacker on the curb before tossing a stick of dynamite right on top of them.

Next thing you know, there’s nothing left of the griefer but a cloud of dust where they used to be tied up.

Red Dead Online has received some criticism for the way PvP operates in the game, but for now it seems like the best strategy is to just fight fire with fire, or in this case, dynamite.

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.
