Red Dead Redemption 2 Players have immense freedom with their character’s appearance, as they can change protagonist Arthur Morgan’s hair and facial hair as they see fit, but the same cannot be said for other characters in the game. Characters like Uncle are never seen without their facial hair, at least under normal circumstances.
However, when a game fails, all is fair game. In this particular Red Dead Redemption 2 glitch, a player was surprised to discover that the uncle had suddenly lost his beard.
As shared by Realistic-Layer2893 on Reddit, an image of the player screen shows Uncle, completely beardless. Interestingly, it looks like the area of his face where his beard would normally be is a bit darker than the rest of his skin, as if the man still had a beard shadow even when the rest of it was missing. It’s probably a texture that’s part of his face, although it wouldn’t normally be visible when hidden under the beard net. Uncle clearly shows his age even without the beard, with the skin around his jawline appearing a bit jowly.
It’s not entirely clear what happened to cause this particular problem, and just about anything is possible. The wavy lines on screen near Uncle may be part of his beard with the mesh stretched out beyond recognition, but it’s hard to tell. Sometimes graphics limitations and overheating can cause game graphics to malfunction, especially if consoles like PS4 have not been cleaned of dust and have trouble dissipating heat. Setting Red Dead Redemption 2Graphics as low as possible can also lead to weird visual issues, but that doesn’t seem to be the case here.
Sure, Red Dead Redemption 2 he himself is no stranger to trouble, so it’s possible that something went wrong in the programming to cause this particular visual bug. Players have encountered bugs that make NPCs look like zombies for no apparent reason, and at least one player has had a psychedelic-like experience in Red Dead Redemption 2 when the visuals became very saturated and awash in neon colors. There are a lot of things that can go wrong in an open-world game of this size and scope. Whereas Red Dead Redemption 2 Generally attracting more attention for its physics-based glitches that send players flying through the air, it’s not uncommon for weird visual glitches to crop up.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
