Headless army shoot-out in Red Dead Redemption


– Tom Heath

Video games contain glitches. Sometimes these glitches make for entertaining romps as a goat who blows up a petrol station. Others turn sensual sex scenes into pure, weapons grade nightmare fuel.

Then there are the ones that are just plain creepy.

YouTube user Drewoid was playing Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, a game that was already full of creepy ghouls, when he came across a town that’s inhabitants had no heads. Where heads should be there was instead a void of transparent pixels.

The headless townsfolk were just hanging around, airing their neck-stumps, minding their own business, when suddenly they decided to shoot the ever-living shit out of each other. Here’s Drewoid’s visual account of the event, accompanied by some toe-tapping ragtime:

We’ve written before about the tragedies in Red Dead Redemption, but this certainly wasn’t one of them.
