You can kill KKK members in Red Dead Redemption 2

It looks like this act doesn't negatively impact your honor, either.

5

Rockstar likes to stuff their open-world games with a lot of content. Red Dead Redemption 2 hasn't been out more than two weeks yet and players are discovering curious things every day. One player, though, happened upon a harrowing meeting of some hooded men. In the gameplay video below, watch the player stumble upon a new member initiation for the Ku Klux Klan and then introduce them to a bit of dynamite and gunpowder.

Mafia 3 comes to mind as another prominent release featuring the KKK, but that game featured them in a mission. It doesn't look like this particular instance involved a mission of any kind, but it must be noted that the unprovoked slaughter of these men didn't result in a negative strike on Red Dead Redemption 2's honor meter.

Rockstar Games has supplied one of the biggest launches of the year, but it isn't without its issues. Read our full review of Red Dead Redemption 2 and, also, catch up on some significant labor changes at Rockstar Games that are a result of some poor practices including required overtime.

      Why not just start an open dialog with them and listen to their ideas?

        Quite right! Violence is never the answer.

        Hmm, yes, they can explain how much they don't want to be on fire, and I can explain how important it is to me that they be on fire. Maybe we can reach a compromise where the forest is set on fire, and maybe the KKK members catch on fire, and maybe they don't.

        god i wish they'd have put this option in, then late-game there's a terrible consequence for not stopping them when you might have.

      This is so divisive! I'm just kidding, fuck those racist hillbillies.

      Is this a repeatable quest?

        I've had multiple run-ins with them. The best part is that they always clown on themselves before you can -- once it was an induction ceremony and the dipshit caught himself on fire from the burning cross, the other time two of them were trying to raise a cross in the middle of a field and dropped it on themselves and were crushed to death. GOTY.

      You can do that in Wolfenstein The New Colossus and Mafia III as well.

      Someone show make an RPG maker game where the bad guys are all Nazi and KKK.

      So besides this initial KKK meeting, it seems their leader pops up a few more times. I ran across him a bit later after a large cross somehow fell over and killed two of his members, he makes some comment about "how does this keep happening?". Quite humorous. I let him live because I want to see what other hijinks he gets himself into.

        Heh yeah, that was great. You scare them by greeting them and shit happens.
