After year and a half I still love the game but there are a few things I would like to get off my chest. So without making too much of a fuss I wanted to share some of the stuff that baffles me about this game and doesn’t make much sense. Here’s a couple of interesting points:
- Too many winter clothes when there isn’t much to do up in Grizzlies West.
- Grizzlies West itself, it would probably be ridiculous to put a living settlement in there, but an unique horse, a gun, a Legendary Animal, a Legendary Fish and the Tucker random event simply isn’t enough content for such a big region.
- Again not having much to do in Grizzlies East either. After changing the beta map it just feels more like a linear path with a couple of great views of New Ha…

[CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR RED DEAD REDEMPTION AND RDR2]
Firstly, let me begin by saying this is my first blog, so if it seems more like a ramble than a well put together essay forgive me. Secondly, I don't hate Red Dead Redemption 2. The game, visually and in terms of gameplay, is great.To many people who's first Red Dead game was the 2nd, which appears to be more people on this website everyday, the game is a masterpiece and this is completely understandable. As a standalone experience the game is almost flawless, despite my relative disconnection from it for reasons to be discussed soon. As a fan of Red Dead Redemption since the age of 11, almost a decade ago, the game has been a passion of mine for almost half my life. For years Red Dead Re…Read more >
It's been almost two and a half years since I first joined this wiki, time really flies and with it comes life. I didn't start editing here because I felt forced to do it, no, I always contrivbuted when and if I felt like it. Contributing can at times feel very unappreciated and pointless at times. But looking back at it I do not regret contributing, it has allowed me to get to know people, people I see as friends. Something I am very glad about.
However, life has to come first and under a rather long period my editing has been in an on/off state. This has inevitably resulted in other staff members having to step into my shoes at times and work harder to not let my absence affect the wiki. That being said, the work we do is in essence still…Read more >
I want to preface this by saying. I love Red Dead Redemption 2. I love the story, I love the gameplay and I think it is generally an improvement on the first Red Dead Redemption. Easily one of the best games ever made.
However, I thought it would be an interesting post to change my attitude and discuss somethings the game got wrong. So first off, i'm going to split my criticisms of the game into two sections, Story and gameplay. Each point will be what I believe to be a negative aspect of said story or gameplay. Mind you, these points are more minor gripes I have with the game as I do love the game and have no serious problems with it.
- The total absence of John Marston's daughter. Yes it's slightly bizarre hearing about the daughter of John Ma…

"The many miles we walked
The many things we learned
The building of a shrine

That's the way it is"
While it may not come as a huge surprise to anyone, it is with a heavy heart that I hereby announce my resignation. It has been one hell of a ride since I joined this wonderful community late last year which involved plenty of exciting tasks, caring people and interesting opportunities, in short, an experience I'll never forget nor regret. However, like so many before me, my journey has come to an end and it is time to ride into the sunset, at least for the time being.
Last but not least, I want to expr…

I dont think a Red Dead movie will ever be made to be honest, VG adaptions have a rep for sucking, but if it was to happen, who would you like to see play who? For me ....
Arthur Morgan = Chris Pratt ( he would have to drop his cutesy shtick though )
Hosea Matthews = Daniel Day Lewis
Micah Bell = at first I was thinking Josh Holloway, but he is too handsome to be that rat, so I dont know.
Pearson = John Goodman
Dutch = I wanted DDL for this, but figured he may be a bit old to play Dutch as there would no doubt be gun fitghts and action in a Red Dead movie and Dutch would no doubt be at the forfront of it, thats why I changed him to Hosea
Lenny Summers = Justice Smith / John Boyega
Sadie Adler = Charliz Theron
I have not thought of any more yet, s…

I started editing this wiki on November 5th 2018, and at the time of this post I have accumulated 844 edits. Not a massive amount, but more than many others. A few weeks later on November 22nd I Made a request for patroller, which was accepted, and on January 8th I requesteed and received the game of Content Moderator.
Unfortunately, since receiving the rank of Content Moderator I have stopped playing Red Dead Redemption 2, and have begun to forget many of the games mechanics and plot. To make up for this, I began removing categories in mass and reporting trolls, but I have slowly tired of this tedious work. My activity has collapsed, and as I have been known to advise inactive staff members to resign, I feel that I should do what I have enc…Read more >
After one year and 275 days of dedicating myself to this wiki, I must resign. I've enjoyed my time here and it's certainly taught me some lessons in how to be mature and how to be a better person.
I am not just resigning from this wiki, but from all of Wikia. I want to devote my energy to pursuits in real life. I'd rather have a life and a job than keep this wiki running. The time I've spent on Wikia has certainly taught me a lot, and I won't be forgetting this anytime soon.
Good luck to whoever takes my place here. As the sole administrator, I had to do a lot of work, especially at the start of my tenure as staff due to being the only regularly active staff member. Now that my time here is over, I will be reflecting on my career on this wik…Read more >
The same as RDR2, but no-one dies. You have a gang full of members that you talk to at base camp, and can add members too it. (Similiar to the optional Heist members in GTA5, like Packie.) You can ride out in a group of 5 members that are our pick, and can appoint new people to new positions, like the positions in the GTA Online bikers update. There can also be a romancing system siliar to fallout between the members of your camp. I would've loved that in RDR2, getting with Sadie, Karen, Molly, Mary-Beth, or Tilly. You can still upgrade your camp until it becomes a fortress. I'll add more to this over time.Read more >
The corpse of Edgar Ross was found by his brother who heard the shots. Realizing that he saw the man who killed his brother, Phillip looked around, yet not a soul was within sight, aside from his brother's corpse.
Soon, word reached Blackwater that Ross was murdered, and Phillip gave a description of the man he saw. Posters are distributed across West Elizabeth with a sketch drawing of the man, leading to a tip on a man who looks similar to the one in the sketch. Members of the Bureau Of Investigation arrive at Beecher's Hope, where they are soon confronted by a man. One of the soldiers points out the similarity of this man and the one in the poster, and confronts the man, who coldly confesses to the crime, and threatens the men. They deman…Read more >
With ideas forming and drafts taking their final shape, I believe I am ready to start posting blogs, involving a story idea for Jack in a Red Dead Redemption III game. While I doubt this game would actually take place, and even if it did then the story would be far from my own vision of it, I think intend to do this. It's purely for my personal entertainment and enjoyment, though it is nice if others take joy in these stories. This is also one of the ways I use my creativity, so that overtime I can improve it and increase the quality of my ideas.
The story will probably last until whenever I decide to simply end it, so it could be anywhere from a month to a year. It depends on the length of the story and how large the posts are. I'll start …Read more >

With Red Dead Redemption II released, the game has so far been a huge success, though I can't say the same for Red Dead Online, and has garnered the wiki much attention. That attention has continued and looks to continue for some time. Though a third RDR game hasn't been confirmed, and would likely take years from now to be released, that gives us plenty of time to speculate on the possibility of a third game.
The idea that I like the most is the idea of a Jack Marston outlaw story. Following the murder of Edgar Ross in 1911, Jack's like becomes a mystery. While some fans like to think he became involved in World War I, I think he either became an outlaw, or lived on the failed ranch in Beecher's Hope and became an author. I wouldn't mind i…

There should be bounties for certain members of the O'Driscoll Boys, the Murfree Brood (including their leader), the Laramie Gang, and the Night Folk.

The wild west was a harsh and unforgiving place where gunslingers and outlaws alike went from being actual individuals to become myths and legends – the number of people whom got the opportunity to outlive their legend along with telling their own tale was scarce, and the history of the Red Dead Wiki itself is no different. There has been an unthinkable amount of users on the Wikia throughout the ages, not to mention moderators, owners and staff members in general. However, most of them have ventured to greener pastures for one reason or another.
Someone who gained prominence for, what seems like a lifetime ago, is our beloved administrator Ilan or Raziel Reaper (Raz) as he is more commonly known these days. After having joined the Red Dead…Read more >
Last year, Red Dead Wiki inducted it's first users into it's Hall of Gunslingers, and awarded the first Spawny Award. This year, another three users are being honored, with two inducted into the Hall of Gunslingers and one being the recipient of the Spawny Award. It is my privilege to announce the Hall of Gunslingers Class of 2018 to be none other than JackFrost23 and Hawbz. As for the winner of this year's Spawny Award, the 2018 Recipient of the Spawny Award is User:Blaff 60. We had a strenuous time of looking through the eligible candidates and we decided these three were the best options to receive the wiki's highest honors.

As my last blog post was me adopting this wiki, my final one is me leaving the wiki.
As has been the obvious case, my activity on the wiki is far too low to warrant being a staff member, let alone one of just two Bureaucrats.
Because of this, I am stepping down as B'crat of Red Dead Wiki.
After starting work over a year ago my activity on Wikia in general fell like a bombshell. First I left my beloved GTA Wiki and now here. I had hoped the release of RDR2 would get me back but I love the game so much I spend more time playing it than writing about it.
Staying active here is an unrealistic goal now.
To all the staff, it's been great working alongside you all. I adopted the wiki with the aim of getting it back up and ship-shape in time for RDR2 a…Read more >
I couldn't help but notice that there is a big plot hole/continuity error between the original RDR & RDR 2. In RDR 1, John mentions that he parted from Dutch's gang after they left him to die after a robbery went south in 1905, however the epilogue of RDR 2 insinuates that he's been away from the gang since it all fell apart in 1899? I can hardly imagine him going back to the gang for another 6 years after they all turned on him and Arthur like that... Anyone have an explanation? Or is this just a massive oversight by Rockstar?Read more >

I've finished some stranger missions as Arthur. I'm now playing as John and now the missions have restarted. Is this normal or do i have a glitch?Read more >
The conclusion to Arthur Morgan's character arc can end in primarily two different ways. Arthur can die attempting to steal from Dutch or he can die ensuring John Marston escapes to see his family again. Now I want to preface this by saying, I LOVE John Marston. But in the end, I went for the money. Greedy? Selfish you might think? I think not. And I'll explain why I honestly prefer the "money" ending over the other option.
Near the end of the game, Arthur talks about needing a "vacation" to some place dry out West, like California. Because it's his best chance at surviving his terminal illness. Of course, to do this, he'll need all the money he can get. But honestly I think the money symbolizes much more. You have to think about all of thi…

You know that little railway bridge to the south of Valentine, the one where you find those mangled bodies? I was just there since my Stranger encounter alert went off, I investigated and I heard someone say "Hey!", I was the only one there, there wasn't anybody else around.

I'm not sure how I feel about Uncle being a member of Dutch's gang. Firstly it wouldn't make any sense as to why Edgar Ross and the agency wouldn't hunt Uncle down during the events of the first game or why John never treats him like a former gang member and secondly I don't believe that Uncle is a memeber of the gang. It's hinted in Red Dead Redemption that John and Uncle have know each other since John's childhood. Uncle is probably a small time crook or theif that just tags along with John, Dutch and the rest of the gang. I highly doubt we'll see Uncle patricipating in train robberies or bank heists. He'll probably just act as a friend to the gang and not an active part of it.Read more >
I'm a big fan of Dutch, and I'm excited to see his character arc in RDR II. I imagine it will be much like Jesse James in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert FordRead more >
Rockstar has released the third trailer for the game, and it includes many more new details on the game and characters. We've got an idea for what it'll be like, so let's take a look at it.
We've got more shots of Dutch's gang and other characters in the game. In the opening scene, we see the gang holding up a train. We see Dutch, Bill, Arthur, and other members. However, we can't see the blonde woman or Marston, so maybe they simply don't take part in the robbery. In other scene's, we see the blonde woman stabbing something, and Marston being held at knifepoint. We see federal agents, including a character who seem to be Edgar Ross. We can view another federal agent who could be Ross' mentor. One of the members of Dutch's gang seems to be …

For the past eight years that I've been playing Red Dead Redemption, I've been stuck at 99.5% and I fear my 100% completion may be glitched. I've looked up tons of resources and nothing could point me in the proper direction of what the final 0.5% could be. But according to the 100% checklist on this wikia seen here I SHOULD have 100% in game. As my in game stats appear to line up with what is required for obtaining 100% in the game.
For 100% the following in game stats should read
- All 57 Story Missions completed
- All 5 Rare Weapons obtained
- All outfits with the exception of the Bureau Outfit (As the Bureau Outfit is unlocked after 100 %)
- All 5 Job Locations completed
- All Safehouses and Rental Properties Purchased

With Red Dead Redemption II's delay, we have more time until the game is released after the long wait. Originally announced in October 2016, it was scheduled for Fall 2017, then rescheduled to Spring 2018. Now, we have a release date of October 26, 2018, more than eight months away. In the meantime, let's look at what we already know.
We know that we're playing as Arthur Morgan, and that Dutch's gang will play a large part in the game. In trailers and screenshots, we've seen Arthur, Bill, and Dutch. However, we haven't closely seen John, Jack, Javier, or Abigail. We've also seen an unknown woman, who seems to be based off of Bonnie McFarlane. It's likely we'll see more screenshots and learn more information as we approach the release date.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has been delayed yet again. As the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 got closer and closer Rockstar dropped a bomb on the community today February 1st 2018. That being yet another delay for the release date, it was scheduled to release this Spring but is now scheduled to release on October 26, 2018. That is almost 1 year later than the first date they had in plan for the game, that being Autumn of 2017.
While it came as a shock to many people, this is in-fact not the first time Rockstar has done this. GTA 5 was originally planned to release 2011, but was later delayed to release in Spring of 2013, however when the date got closer and closer they eventually delayed it to release in September of 2013. So why does this occ…Read more >
It's December twenty fifth, and that means it's Christmas. Merry Christmas to all the users of Red Dead Wiki, including staff, Discussions users, and also people to don't edit. We look forward to 2018, as the release of Red Dead Redemption II will have us working overtime to get this wiki filled to the brim with information on the game. We hope those who don't edit make an account and help inform fans of RDR about the new game upon it's release.
With 2018 closing in, we're looking forward to the release of Red Dead Redemption II. Upon it's release, I'll be hosting a weekly news feature on the wiki, which will include information about the game, the user who's contributed the most for the week, and will also host a poll involving things from…

Wikis all across Wikia have some sort of award or honor bestowed upon the best users of their wikis. With my recent undertaking of getting The Red Dead Wiki ready for the surge of activity upon the release of Red Dead Redemption II, I've prepared news articles, advice blogs, and an official Discord server. Now, I am here to discuss two new features of this modernization that I've come up with. These two features are a Hall Of Fame for the wiki, and an award known as The Spawny Award.
To honor distinguished members of the wiki, a Hall Of Fame, known as The Hall Of Gunslingers is to be implemented. Inductions would occur once every year, on December 31, and I intend to start it this year. Due to low activity, I've come up with a two users who…

Administrators are a group of people who possess power in some shape or size. They may rule over a chat, or perhaps they may rule over a wiki, but they have power in some kind of way. However, if one takes a look at any of the many wikis that have died or became troll infested pits of bubbling, disgusting, revolting trolls, then you'll see not everyone is fit for the role of an Administrator. Using my experience as an Administrator, and my experience of dealing with other Administrators, I am going to discuss a few things that, in my opinion, every Administrator should possess.
Administrators are humans just like everyone else. We make mistakes and we fix those mistakes. Sometimes, our mistakes and faults are pointed out by users. Some Admi…

With the new Red Dead game set to be released anywhere from four to six months from now, Red Dead Wiki is preparing for the boost of activity by modernizing. The first step in this process is to open a Discord server for the channel. It will be a good addition to the wiki, and will help to draw users to the wiki. There are a few pros and cons to opening a Discord server.
- Discord has a number of features that Wikia chats don't have.
- Bots on Discord can do a number of things.
- Each user is in a category.
- Messages can be edited to correct a mistake.
- There are no time limits to bans.
- Messages can be deleted but can be viewed by staff after deletion.
- If a user is kicked, they'll need the invite to get back in.
With that, I encourage the users here to jo…

Basically, after my Jack Marston kills Edgar Ross at the end of "Remember My Family" he sort of "retires" down south in Nuevo Paraíso, spending much of his time in and around Escalera, where he does normal stuff like drink at cantinas, play some Blackjack, other than that he hunts bounties and helps the locals in general. He does sometimes travel around, mostly between Chuparosa and Casa Madrugada, but sometimes north of the border as well.Read more >
