It feels like almost a weekly occurrence at this point that a new secret is uncovered in Red Dead Redemption 2. You'd think that almost three years after its release, most things would have been dug up by now, but there's still so much going on in this game under the surface, buried and waiting to be found. ...Get it? I'm making grave jokes. They've found a spooky grave this time. Hence the...oh, forget it.
But yes, over on the r/reddeadredemption subreddit, user Electronic_Top1532 has made a slightly creepy discovery in the form of an unnamed grave, hidden in North of Beecher's Hope. The only thing the grave is marked with, in fact, is a human skull mounted on top of a wooden stake. So, y'know, not terrifying at all. The real question remains though - who or what is the grave for? Other users on Reddit have been putting their best guesses forward to solve the mystery.
It's not all doom and gloom in RDR2, though. In fact, some players have been having a whale of a time, some of which you can see right here.
"Probably a Skinner grave. If you've already done all the Blackwater bounties, it may be the final bounty's grave. The 'head stone' kinda looks like it has a huge beard, which the last bounty had," commented ThatsMisterIceMan2u. User DrNefardio couldn't resist making a (rather clever) pun: "Rip Van Winkle." Meanwhile, Crested-Auklet added a third, and significantly more terrifying option: "It's for you, lock your doors. He is coming for you."
Although the general conclusion of the debate was that it was most likely to be a Skinner grave, there were still a few remaining mysteries. A few users raised the point that it's unlikely that the Skinners would bury their victims in the first place, and as the original poster Electronic_Top1532 added, the grave wasn't found in the Tall Trees area where the Skinners are based. All in all though, there's one definite conclusion we can take from it all, thanks to user MHAccA: "Someone died." I mean, they're not wrong.
