Of the night.

It's shocking the amount of stuff you can find in Red Dead Redemption 2. Heck, the Stranger missions, Legendary animals, and camp side-activities were already enough as it is. But it seems another major discovery has been made, and it's not what you'd expect. UFOs were one thing, but this is another entirely.

To keep you from getting spoiled, we're going to be vague with the details of this discovery. It's really worth seeing it through the end so you can experience it yourself. The objective of this mission is quite simple: find five mysterious writings scattered across Saint Denis. Once you've found all those, you'll get a map that points you to an alleyway near the church in town. However, in order to trigger the event properly, you need to visit at night. If you really want to know what it is, hover your mouse over the text below:

You find five mysterious writings that inevitably lead you to finding an actual vampire. Seriously. A vampire!

Below we detail the locations of all five mysterious writings, as well as provide directions on how to get to the alleyway by the Saint Denis church. You can find the writings in any order, but for the sake of clarity, we've numbered them to make it easier to follow. Massive props to Luke Lawrie of Stevivor, who deserves all the credit for being able to discern these clues and find them all across town. With bizarre stuff like this, it seems there's no shortage of secrets tucked away in Red Dead Redemption 2, so if you've discovered something crazy, be sure to let us know about it in the comments below.

Clue 1

"I drink from the maiden and I live again in the dead. The heart of the king of blood."

The first clue is located on the building just above the second "N" in "Saint Denis" on the map. You'll see it written on the wall of a red building with white doors.

Clue 2

"I feed again. The blood of life. The circle has begun."

The second clue is near the Saint Denis market place where the local Fence and Trapper are. It's tucked away in an alleyway behind a gate where there are some neatly stacked barrels.

Clue 3

"Five bones under the perfect star. Nosferatu with Dominica will become mortal again."

The third clue is located by the Butcher and General Store on the southwestern side of town. It's on the other side of the shops, tucked away under an overhang.

Clue 4

Oh sweetest of napes, may your blood remain forever on my lips. Six there will be before the lust is sated."

The fourth clue is found directly north of the post office, tucked away in a corridor. Look to the shot above to chart a path to its locations.

Clue 5

With one long kiss, I draw the life from her and await the outpost of advancing day."

The final clue is found on another wall of the building the previous clue was written on. Simply head up north to get to it, but you'll likely have to run around the building to reach it. This building complex is a bit of a labyrinth but stick with it and you'll find it eventually.

The Big Reveal

As stated above, you'll get a map once you've gathered all the clues. It's a tad vague in the direction it's trying to point you, but it's ultimately trying to get you to go to a secluded alleyway to the west of the General Store and Butcher. However, the special event won't trigger until nighttime, so be sure to advance time at the local saloon. Once it's night, head to the alleyway and prepare yourself for a bizarre event that defies expectations.
