It serves as the location of the camp during the second chapter of the game and as a possible camp location in Red Dead Online.
Horseshoe Overlook is located in The Heartlands, within New Hanover. It is situated south of Valentine, east of the border with West Elizabeth.
Horseshoe Overlook is a plateau in the Heartlands. To one side is a steep cliff, and to the other lies thick forest, making it the perfect location for the gang to camp. It is most likely named after its resemblance to the shape of a horseshoe.
If the player returns to Horseshoe Overlook in the epilogue, the player will hear an auditory flashback of a conversation that took place during camp's corresponding chapter.
Horseshoe is traditionally thought to bring good luck. The Van der Linde gang camping at Horseshoe Overlook in Chapter 2 echos this thought as many gang members believe the gang's luck is turning for the better after the Blackwater Massacre.
This is particularly supported by Dutch, Hosea, Susan and Uncle, who assure their fellow members that they will survive and often ask fellow members to cheer up.
