Rockstar Games has proven time and time again that they are one of the leading video game developers. Red Dead Redemption 2 scored a 97 on Metacritic, earning a perfect 10/10 score from The Washington Post, IGN, Telegraph, and Twinfinite. Reviews aren't everything, but in this case, it's hard to disagree.
Many players might wonder what to do after beating Red Dead Redemption 2. Sure the campaign is long, but achievement hunters and completionists alike want more. In case you were wondering, Red Dead Redemption 2 has an abundance of content for its endgame. This is Red Dead Redemption 2: 10 things to do after you beat the game.
10 Play Red Dead Redemption 2's Online Mode
Continue the adventure of Red Dead Redemption 2 by heading into its expansive online mode. One is a lonely number, and Red Dead Online is a new western experience that will appeal to most players.
With a variety of co-op missions, the ability to start your own trading company, and more than enough liquor to wet your whistle, you can progress through Red Dead Online as a yokel or a full-blown cowboy. Now, what are you waiting for? Skedaddle and head into Red Dead Online.
9 Search For The Other Van der Linde Gang Members
Dead or alive, Van der Linde gang members can be found throughout the world of Red Dead Redemption 2. Mary-Beeth is a character who can be found at the train platform in Valentine. Even dead people from the gang like Micah can be found in the endgame of Red Dead Redemption 2.
Micah is at the cabin where you left him—frozen and lifeless. You can't see all the Van der Linde members because it wouldn't fit with the plot of the first Red Dead Redemption, but you can find most of them.
8 Complete The Game's Stranger Missions
Rockstar Games didn't hold back on the sequel to Red Dead Redemption. The game contains an abundance of content for players to enjoy its endgame. One noteworthy thing to do once you beat the game is to complete RDR2's stranger missions.
You can encounter NPCs in the game who will offer missions with rewards. Including a stranger mission involving testing an invention, learning what it's like to be an artist, and finding dinosaur bones, there are plenty of side missions to keep you busy.
7 Hunt For Legendary Animals
The meat of the endgame is hunting for legendary animals...no pun intended. If you want to collect new outfits and new satchels, for example, you'll need to partake in hunting to obtain the required materials.
Don't worry, no animals were harmed in the making of Red Dead Redemption 2. This video game provides realistic hunting as part of its sizeable package. A legendary cougar, elk, buck, beaver, bear, and alligator can be found in RDR2. Legendary hunting isn't required for the game's campaign, but it will certainly keep you busy in the endgame.
6 Find The White Arabian Horse
A majestic white Arabian horse appears in the mountains of Red Dead Redemption 2. The Arabian horse is the fastest horse you can ride in the game. It's handling, and overall enjoyment makes it worth finding.
You can see, tame, and ride this horse if you head to the correct location and learn how to tame it. The challenge to tame the Arabian horse is more substantial than other horses but is not that difficult overall.
5 Work On The Marston Ranch
John Marston has shown that he is not cut out to be a city-slicker. Instead of getting a job like a normal person, he falls back into the dregs of society by being a gun for hire.
With that being said, John Marston earned enough money to buy the tools and materials needed to build a house. The Marston Ranch is quite excellent considering he made it with his bare hands. In the endgame, players can further work to improve the Marston ranch.
4 Search For Easter Eggs
The remains of a Wooly Mammoth can be found in a mountainous region of Red Dead Redemption 2. Similar to Grand Theft Auto V, there are numerous easter eggs to keep players busy when they are done RDR2's campaign. Rockstar Games seems to be obsessed with supernatural creatures and phenomena.
Ghosts, witches, and aliens can be found, and it's doubtful every easter egg has been discovered so far. In addition to a ghost train located near Lemoyne and New Hanover, there are a variety of other apparitions present throughout the game.
3 Go Fishing
Many players gained exposure to fishing by playing Red Dead Redemption 2's storyline, but there is actually a lot more depth than most people believe. In total, there are thirteen Legendary fish that can be caught throughout the world of Red Dead Redemption 2.
Fish including a Legendary Trout, Legendary Rock Bass, a Legendary Lake Sturgeon, and a Legendary Catfish will have you showing off your fishing prowess. Grab some lures, get in a boat, and spend some quality time fishing. It's not a stretch to say fishing is one of Red Dead Redemption 2's most thrilling activities.
2 Search The Game For Glitches
Red Dead Redemption 2, like any game of its size, has glitches that need to be fixed. This cowboy's assless chaps may not be the best representation of glitches in Red Dead Redemption 2, but there's no telling what you might find.
Another glitch that may or may not be patched allows Red Dead Online players to travel to the island of Guarma. Guarma is one of RDR2's most scenic locations and to be able to return is too awesome. Perhaps they should allow players to go to Guarma via a boat or helicopter ride. Wait, helicopters were invented at this time...right?
1 Try To Reach 100% Game Completion
Red Dead Redemption 2 has a prolonged story that is made up of the main story and a two-part epilogue. The sheer amount of content gives the game great value. According to howlongtobeat.com, the game should take on average 46 hours to beat the main story and 156 hours for completionists.
