What happens when you follow a Red Dead Redemption 2 NPC for an entire day?

YouTube group DefendTheHouse took it upon themselves to follow around three of Red Dead Redemption’s vibrant, non-playable characters for a day – and discovered just how detailed the Wild West title really is.

Much like people in the real world, RDR’s NPCs have regular schedules, heading off to work or starting their daily routines at a set time each day.


The first NCP the team followed began his day at 8:00 am, leaving his room in the saloon to work in a livestock yard from 10:00 am – 9:15 pm. He would return to the saloon after his work for a few stiff drinks, turning in at 12:05 am.

The team concluded that this NPC must be from out of town, due to his aloof nature and quarters in the saloon.


The second NPC quite liked his liquor; the character took frequent drinking breaks and stumbled around his work on a construction site, falling asleep on a table at the saloon at 1:00 am. 

The team couldn’t determine his actual place of residence, and assumed that he was unmarried due to his drinking habits.



The third character worked as a stablehand, beginning his chores early in the morning before heading to the saloon for drinks at 8:30 pm. He also enjoyed playing the harmonica around the fire before turning in for the night.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has been praised for its incredible attention to detail; from characters gaining or losing weight depending on how much they eat to horses’ testicles shrinking due to the cold, Rockstar have spared no expense for their record-breaking title.

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.
