Gamer Notices Gruesome Detail While Using Red Dead Redemption 2’s Photo Mode

A gamer has noticed a gruesome detail about Red Dead Redemption 2‘s combat, which is most noticeable when going into Photo Mode. Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of those games that players keep coming back to, as there’s always something fresh about the experience.

Half a decade after its release, Red Dead Redemption 2 remains perhaps the most detailed open-world game ever created. Gamers are still discovering hidden secrets in Rockstar’s Western, and it’s likely there’s much more still hidden from players. The title was acclaimed upon release, with remarkable sales figures proving the fans enjoyed it just as much as critics. Red Dead Redemption 2 recently moved beyond the 50 million sales milestone, allowing it to become one of the best-selling video games ever made. When compared to GTA 5‘s numbers, it might seem less successful, but it’s unlikely Rockstar will be too upset with those kinds of numbers.


The gruesome detail was noticed by Redditor deutschesgesetzbuch_, who discovered that when an enemy is shot in the head in Red Dead Redemption 2, players can see their jaw flying away. This is only possible with the most powerful weapons in Red Dead Redemption 2, such as the sawed-off shotgun at close range. Players wanting to catch this in action should use Photo Mode, as the combat in the game is too fast-paced to catch many of the intricate details. The dismemberment system in Red Dead Redemption 2 is extremely powerful. With a well-placed shot and the right weapon, players can even decapitate NPCs.

Users in the thread appreciated the incredible detail, with many wanting to see the gore feature in Rockstar’s upcoming GTA 6. Recent GTA titles haven’t really seen this level of gore featured, so it would be a surprising move if it were to be included. In the thread, many pointed out the irony that GTA is often considered the most violent and controversial game series ever in the mainstream media, despite the violence being tame by the standard of many other video games, including Rockstar’s own efforts.

Despite the age of the game, Rockstar continues to release new updates for Red Dead Redemption 2, although at this point it’s mostly small bug fixes to add to the title’s incredible level of polish. The studio’s main focus remains GTA 6, which could still be years away from release. Because of this, fans hoping to hear of a potential Red Dead Redemption 3 could be waiting a very long time, as game development times get much longer in general. While nothing is confirmed and this is all speculation, there’s a very real scenario where gamers don’t get their hands on Red Dead Redemption 3 until the 2030s, although most gamers will be hoping it doesn’t come to that.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
