Red Dead Redemption 2 Mod Covers the Game in Snow

A mod for Red Dead Redemption 2 brings the Old West into the winter season, covering the game’s streets and fields with a layer of snow.

In the three years since Red Dead Redemption 2 released, the western has seen no shortage of amazing mods that completely change its look and feel. The creative modding community has brought players in the Old West to locations like Red Dead 1‘s Mexico, enhanced its graphics and audio capabilities, and even added zombies into the popular open-world shooter. Now, a recent mod aims to give the game’s wide prairies and thick forests a markedly more wintry appeal.


Red Dead Redemption 2 features plenty of locations and regions within the game that already appeal to the snowy, wintery aesthetic. The main story of Red Dead 2 begins on the snowy Mount Hagen and players can travel to the frosty Lake Isabella and several other frosty areas in the game’s snow-capped Grizzlies West region. With the game’s setting located in a fictionalized version of the US Southwest, snow-covered regions are difficult to find amidst the prairies and forests. However, a mod for the game seeks to re-create that wintry environment across the world of Red Dead Redemption 2.

The mod showcased by YouTuber Supreme Dear Leader shows off a far snowier version of Red Dead Redemption 2 with a stunning flurry of snow blanketing the game’s largest city of Saint-Denis in white. The snow effects can be seen affecting Arthur’s clothes with snow clinging to his jacket and hat and the roads and sidewalks of the city are shown to be covered in a fresh layer of snow. The sudden flurry gives a different appeal to the usually tropical climate of the bayou capital of Lemoyne.

The YouTuber showed off several missions in Saint-Denis complete with the snowy environment and expressed interest in the video’s description in creating more content with the mod, showing off other regions of the game. While the snow effects on the city of Saint-Denis are certainly impressive, the video notably lacked a source link to the mod being used in the video. Players looking to re-create the wintry environments in their own version of Red Dead Redemption 2 can find a similar creation called ‘Simple Snow’ on NexusMods.

Mods for Red Dead Redemption 2 have added a wide variety of new experiences to the three-year-old cowboy shooter for players to enjoy. With mods, the game’s creative community can add completely new experiences to the already massive game, allowing Red Dead 2 players to own dogs and even making the game completely playable in VR. While Red Dead Redemption 2‘s new content has slowed over the last year, mostly limited to the game’s online version, the modding community continues to bring new ways for the fanbase to enjoy their time in the Old West.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Stadia.
