While Red Dead Redemption 2 strives to be a believable Wild West experience, one scene would realistically spell doom for Arthur Morgan’s hands.
An unusual scene in Red Dead Redemption 2 seems to confirm that protagonist Arthur Morgan has practically invincible hands. In Rockstar Games’ beloved Wild West game, players take on the role of Arthur Morgan as they explore a vast American frontier and experience an emotional 1800’s storyline. Despite Red Dead Redemption 2’s lifelike details, the game’s realistic open world occasionally features some bizarre and unbelievable moments.
Serving as a worthy successor to 2010’s Red Dead Redemption, the game’s 2018 prequel takes gamers to a truly immersive recreation of the American Wild West. An in-depth Core system means players must regularly eat and drink in order to keep Arthur Morgan healthy, with his weight fluctuating realistically based on his diet. Red Dead Redemption 2’s wildlife all behaves believably, too, and each animal’s different fur quality makes for a very fleshed-out hunting mechanic. RDR2’s non-player characters react realistically to players’ actions, and firearms also function just like their real-life counterparts. However, the game’s systemic open world can occasionally result in some strange events, with one player hilariously finding a vulture trapped under a corpse in RDR2.
In another unusual Red Dead Redemption 2 moment, Reddit user SketchyEntertainment witnessed Arthur Morgan grab a hot metal cup from the bottom to no ill effect. In a cutscene early in the game, Arthur’s gangmate and father figure Hosea hands him a cup of hot coffee. However, the delectable drink is poured into a metal cup, which Arthur then casually grabs from the bottom. Realistically the bottom of the cup should be very hot, if not positively scalding, and yet Arthur displays no discomfort. However, other Redditors suggest that Hosea may have passed the cup fast enough for it to not yet be too hot, and the duo’s cold environment may also negate any negative effects on Arthur’s manly hands.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is already an incredibly realistic experience, owing to Rockstar Games’ intense attention to detail. However, fans have continued to improve the title’s immersive qualities through the creation of unique mods. For example, an RDR2 jobs mod lets Arthur work in a variety of different professions, such as a miner or dockworker, in order to make some in-game cash. The jobs function similarly to the camp chores already present in the game, but the gainful employment actually pays money and can be accepted in a number of different locations.
Considering Red Dead Redemption 2’s commitment to realism, it is quite bizarre to see Arthur Morgan grab a hot metal cup with his bare hands. However, there are a few ways to justify this brief scene given the mission’s cold setting and the speed at which Arthur takes the cup. However, even without any explanation, it is important to note that Arthur Morgan is simply tougher and more durable than the average cowpoke.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia.
