Meteorite is a location in Red Dead Redemption 2.
It appears that a meteorite has crashed in Roanoke Valley. The land around it is deformed by its impact, with trees flattened in a circular pattern around the meteorite itself. This creates a vaguely unsettling atmosphere, as does the thought that such a large hunk of stone once lingered among the stars. Despite the potential wealth of minerals that are sometimes found in meteorites, no one seems to have yet staked a claim to this particular one.
- This location is one of the many points of interest that can be found across the map.
- The appearance of the area, most notably the flattened trees, may be a visual reference to the infamous 1908 Tunguska Event, when a meteorite slammed into the Siberian wilderness and caused an explosion that leveled hundreds of kilometers of forest-- later counted at eighty million trees. The impact had the force of fifteen megatons-- over a thousand times more powerful than the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
