Red Dead Redemption 2 Glitch Lets You See Otherwise Inaccessible Mexico

Red Dead Redemption 2 Glitch Lets You See Otherwise Inaccessible Mexico

Border crossing.

Red Dead Redemption 2 players might have just found a secret, unofficial passageway to Mexico. While you're not really supposed to go there, what's Rockstar going to do, break your legs?

A leak before Red Dead Redemption 2 released showed the complete map of the game which includes the New Austin region from the first Red Dead Redemption. But what about Mexico, the other region from the first Red Dead? Well if you get far enough in the sequel, you'll discover that while Mexico is visible, it isn't traversable. At least not without the help of a glitch.

Normally there's an invisible wall keeping you out of Mexico in Red Dead Redemtpion 2, but YouTuber ZacCoxTV discovered a small opening that will let you venture into a barren Mexico. Other than that, it appears to be the whole Mexico region complete with some buildings and scenery. You can check out how to get to Mexico in the video below.

There is a little snag in that when you reach the edge of the Mexico map, you'll just fall through a bottomless pit. Even Rockstar's expansive western has limits.

The fact that you can technically get into Mexico isn't confirmation the area will ever officially be available to players in the future. Maybe Rockstar is keeping the region saved for the upcoming Red Dead Online, maybe it's just there for developmental needs. Either way, we'll have to wait and see if anything comes of the Mexico region in Red Dead Redemption 2.
