Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game that attracted a majority of its fanbase through its strength of storytelling. Praised by both players and critics alike Red Dead Redemption 2 was labeled by many as being a strong narrative experience. It took players back before the events of Red Dead Redemption, to the story of the gang John Marston often mentions in his original game. Instead of John Martson as Red Dead Redemption 2’s protagonist, players were treated to Arthur Morgan.
Besides Arthur and John making appearances in the game, there’s a whole other cast of interesting characters that can be interacted with in Red Dead Redemption 2. From gang leader Dutch Van der Linde, to the franchise’s most hated villain in Micah Bell, and even a young version of the playable character in Red Dead Redemption’s epilogue, Jack Marston. In Red Dead Redemption 2, Jack is very young, however he’s an important character to the plot, leading to many fans finding interesting details about the character.
With the addition of the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 in 2019, gamers were quick to add mods to their favorite western action game, with quite the focus being put on Jack again. Mostly, these mods veer on the side of silliness, even letting the player control Jack and have the child able to shoot just as well as Arthur Morgan in the game. One modder even decided to change the nature of the story’s end in Red Dead Redemption 2, giving Jack the final blow against Micah.
Red Dead Redemption 2‘s epilogue revolves around John Marston surviving after the downfall of the van der Linde gang, eventually seeking revenge for Arthur. However, a modder who posted their creation to TikTok decided that storyline wasn’t quite up to scratch, and instead let Jack be the bringer of Micah’s demise. After all, it is believed by many fans that Micah killed Jack’s dog Cain, and so the young outlaw deserves revenge as much as anyone.
In the video, Jack and Micah engage in a short battle of words before Jack shoots Micah, wreaking havoc on the land around him by also summoning lightning bolts. After three shots of lightning, Micah is brought down, much to the joy of viewers of the video. One commenter wrote Jack has “got the power of GOD and that gun he found,” while others said they wanted to download the mod just to cause havoc in Red Dead Redemption 2 as the little Jack Marston.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now on PC, PS4, Stadia, and Xbox One.
