Something odd has been going on in Red Dead Online, and it might have given people pause. There are two reasons why things are getting so weird. First, Red Dead Online skeletons have been showing up and attacking players. Second, these skeletons happen to have two heads.
This isn’t a precursor to some sort of official Rockstar Games event for Red Dead Online. Though in the past, Red Dead Redemption as a series hasn’t shied away from the supernatural. (We have seen UFOs and zombies before.) The two-headed skeletons in Red Dead Online are due to other players. On PCs, certain hackers have been using their skills to bring these otherworldly beings into the game.
So, what happens if you come across a Red Dead Online two-headed skeleton? Well, they’re very hostile. They aren’t armed with any weapons, but they will physically attack you on-sight when they get within range of you. The skeletons can be killed or hogtied, so while it can be troublesome dealing with these unwelcome foes, they aren’t impossible to handle when they appear.
People might wonder why a two-headed skeleton would be the weapon of choice for hackers. Well, this is actually a model that is in the game. People who visited the Manzanita Post settlement could come across a circus wagon from a sideshow act that had the two-headed skeleton inside. The people behind this griefing are using that to get their jollies.
