Red Dead 2 PC Mod Lets You Fly Around As An Eagle

"I wanna fly like an eagle to the sea."


While there are several Red Dead Redemption 2 PC mods already in development, a new one lets you assume the form of an eagle, letting you soar around the game's fictionalized Midwest and Southern United States.

Nexus Mods has the files necessary to swap out Arthur Morgan's character model with a variety of different options, including a panther and an eagle. You just need to download the files and save it under "Rockstar Games" > "Red Dead Redemption 2" > "Profiles." This is where your save file is located and you can get to this location by selecting Red Dead Redemption 2 from the Rockstar Games Launcher and clicking "View Save Files."

It's worth noting that this process edits your save file, so be sure to create a backup just in case anything goes awry so you don't lose any progress. Eurogamer uploaded a video of the mod in action, which gives the third-person shooter an Assassin's Creed-like eagle-vision perspective.

From your save file folder, you'll locate and replace Arthur's model files (labeled SRDR30015) with whatever animal or human is available. Reboot the game and Arthur's model should be replaced. Mod uploader TanyaeNorth explicitly states that the mod is currently unfinished, with several models working and several others broken apart from Arthur.

Since its PC debut on November 5, Red Dead Redemption 2 has been causing issues for some players. Notably, the game crashed on startup, with the most common error message being "Red Dead Redemption 2 exited unexpectedly," according to Reddit users. Rockstar Games pushed an update that addressed the ongoing issues players have encountered. The studio then released yet another update to further address the persistent crashes some PC players continue to see.
