The story of the Van der Linde gang is what makes up the bulk of Red Dead Redemption 2the main campaign. As a prequel story to the first Red Dead Redemptionmany returning players were already aware of what was to come, but the details of the gang’s slow decline and the events that would set up the first game were still unknown.
Red Dead Redemption 2The story of is divided into chapters, and each chapter sees the Van der Linde gang set up a new camp to hide out. These camps are the main hubs of the game’s story, not only for the main missions, but also for interacting with the other gang members and seeing them interact with each other. Red Dead Redemption 2 has hundreds of interactions to see between gang members in these camps, and each one is meant to reinforce and build on the characterization of individual gang members.
Rockstar has gone to great lengths to make each member of the gang feel unique and distinct, and that extends to minor details that many players may never have noticed. One of these minor details is that many members of the Van der Linde gang have unique hunting knives that are different from the knives the player can acquire in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now, a Reddit user named ult1matum has compiled all of these unique knives into one image.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is full of these little details, and most players will probably never notice these knives, or maybe even see them equipped because most NPCs will never draw their knives except in specific circumstances. The gang’s unique knives, however, reflect certain attributes of their owners. Since the hunting knife is used to both kill enemies and skin animals for the camp to eat, it’s interesting to note which gang members have knives more suited to which activity.
Charles and Pearson are depicted in the game’s end credits as being the gang’s expert hunter and cook, respectively, so it would make sense that they both had very sturdy wide knives meant for skinning animals. The player character, Arthur Morgan, also starts with a very standard hunting knife, but the player can find more exotic knives while exploring the world of Red Dead Redemption 2.
The most interesting and unique knife design, however, is Micah’s, as all the other gang members have bowie-style hunting knives and Micah seems to only have a double-edged dagger that wouldn’t fit. hunting and butchering animals. This reveals just how much Micah plans to contribute to the camp’s food supply, but also, as many commenters pointed out under ult1matum’s post, Micah’s knife seems far more appropriate for stabbing people in the back. .
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
