'Red Dead Redemption 2' Player Finally Solves Decade-Old Bear Claw Camp Mystery


'Red Dead Redemption 2' Player Finally Solves Decade-Old Bear Claw Camp Mystery

After ten years, this Red Dead Redemption 2 player has cracked the case of the possible supernatural phenomena surrounding Bear Claw Camp, a location that appears in both the 2018 sequel and its 2010-released predecessor.


In West Elizabeth, the player might find a number of abandoned log cabins near the railway south of Manzanita Post. It's an unremarkable sight, however, other characters claim that the houses are haunted by a terrible tragedy. Indeed, the player's horse will become agitated if they visit at night and strange sounds like sighing will echo around the trees.

Weird. While you and I might just call it a ghost story that the developer has written in to creep players out, YouTuber Strangeman took it upon themselves to work out what's up with Bear Claw Camp.

Visiting Repentance Rock in Red Dead Redemption is the first piece of the puzzle. There's an animal hide held down by four rocks and it is decorated with four symbols. Three of them pertain to Mescalero, an abandoned Native American campsite in New Austin. The final symbol is a bear paw print which Strangeman is attributing to Bear Claw Camp. An arrow connects the Mescalero symbols and Bear Claw symbol with the arrow flying towards the fourth symbol.

As such, it is thought that the inhabitants of the Mescalero campsite attacked Bear Claw Camp - and this is supported by the corpses found in the cabins in Red Dead Redemption 2. There are a few more reveals in Strangeman's video on the subject, which I won't spoil here.


In related news, rumours are running riot that Rockstar Games' parent company is going to release remasters of Grand Theft Auto 3, San Andreas and Vice City. And there are also whispers on the wind that a remake of Red Dead Redemption is in the works.

But hold your horses, my friends. The reports assert that a remake is conditional on the commercial success of the Grand Theft Auto remasters. I mean, yeah, I'm sure Take-Two is in two minds over whether or not those games will flop. Yeah. Definitely.
