Even though we will still have to wait a few more months to be able to play Red Dead Redemption 2, some of its items have been made available through another game by Rockstar, Grand Theft Auto 5. One year ago, the game’s developer made an announcement regarding a crossover mission in GTA Online that allows players to unlock a weapon for the upcoming title and now something similar has been discovered in a code of GTA 5.
Gain a new weapon through a treasure hunt
A second Red Dead Redemption 2 weapon has been uncovered by Guru Team, which also unveiled the first tie-in mission in GTA Online. The item found through data mining is a stone hatchet, which can be earned by visiting five different places on the map and eliminating a target. Once you have been to all five locations, you will need to go to a sixth area, where your award will be waiting for you. The newly acquired weapon can be used to unlock the stone hatchet in RDR 2 for PS4 and Xbox One, as long as you can complete some special challenges.
The second crossover mission is yet to be announced
The new weapon is not available in GTA Online at the moment, even though it can be found in the code of the game. We still do not know when the stone hatchet will become available, as Rockstar has not announced this new crossover mission yet. However, since the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 is scheduled for October 26, we should soon get some info from the creators of the game.
The first crossover mission was announced in December of last year. Once it is completed, a double-action revolver will become available for use in Red Dead Redemption 2.
