How to get the Red Dead Redemption 2 stone hatchet by playing GTA Online

Get ahead of the game before Red Dead Redemption 2's October release.


Red Dead Redemption 2 may still be a few months off, but that shouldn't stop you from amassing what items you can in preparation for having the best time in the game that you possibly can. There's currently a Stone Hatchet up for grabs that you can pick up in GTA Online, which you'll be able to unlock in Red Dead Redemption 2 when it launches on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Want to pick up the powerful melee weapon for use later on when you finally boot up that hotly-anticipated game? Here's exactly how you can go about getting geared up for Red Dead Redemption 2 with this awesome-looking melee weapon.

  • Maude Eccles will be sending along text messages with bounty locations. When you get a text message, seek out your latest target to acquire them dead or alive, one by one.
  • The Stone Hatchet's location will be unlocked when you've collected all of Maude's bounties.
  • When you acquire the location of the Stone Hatchet, you can complete a special Kills Challenge for a bonus of GTA$250,000 and to cement your unlock for Red Dead Redemption 2.

Of course, this isn't the only weapon you could have acquired in GTA Online for the upcoming western-themed game. You can also pick up the Double-Action Revolver. Stay tuned to your iFruit device for an email from for instructions about how you can pick up that particular weapon for use in Red Dead Redemption 2 as well.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 26, 2018.
