Unlock This Red Dead Redemption 2 Weapon By Playing GTA 5
GTA and RDR continue to cross-promote each other.
The excitement for Red Dead Redemption 2 is growing greater, as a ton of new information has been unveiled ahead of its release next month. Meanwhile, Rockstar recently released a second cross-promotion weapon--the Stone Hatchet--that's unlockable in both Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2. The weapon was originally uncovered by the Guru Team, who discovered the weapon while datamining in GTA 5. If you want the Stone Hatchet in RDR2, you'll have to earn it by playing GTA Online.
The Stone Hatchet is unlocked in GTA Online after completing a series of bounties for Maude Eccles. The next time you jump into GTA Online, be on the lookout for a text message from Maude. Retrieve all the bounties--dead or alive, it doesn't matter--and you'll earn the Stone Hatchet, along with a new Kills Challenge. Completing the challenge nets you a $250,000 in-game bonus and unlocks the Stone Hatchet in RDR2.
If you missed out on unlocking the Double-Action Revolver in GTA Online last year, you have another chance coming up. According to Rockstar, an in-game email that describes how to unlock the weapon "will soon reappear" in GTA Online. Once you do earn the Double-Action Revolver, completing its Headshot Challenge nabs you a $250,000 in-game bonus and unlocks the firearm in RDR2.
GTA Online is the online multiplayer component of Grand Theft Auto 5, which is available for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3, and PC. Red Dead Redemption 2 is launching for Xbox One and PS4 on October 26, but its online component--Red Dead Online--won't debut until November, when it releases in the form of a beta.
