The files and assets referencing a Red Dead Redemption 2 revolver in GTA Online do indeed reference a reward which can be unlocked.
Everyone’s looking forward to Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2, but we’ve got quite a while to wait still until it’s ready to hit store shelves. That’s why Rockstar is keeping fans interested with goodies like the Double-Action Revolver, which can be unlocked in GTA Online and Red Dead Redemption 2 when it’s finally out.
As it turns out, fans uncovered files for the revolver itself in the latest GTA Online update, The Doomsday Heist. The update delivered new co-op missions, weapons, vehicles, and plenty of other additional content. It also hid a special treasure hunt that would yield the Double-Action Revolver, which bears the Boles Overland Stagecoach Co. inscription, previously noted in Red Dead Redemption 2 screenshots.
Rockstar had the following to say about the weapon on its official blog:
“Rumors of a lost relic from the frontier have begun to surface, and treasure awaits those bold enough to seek it. Keep an eye on your iFruit for a special in-game email containing the first clue, then follow the trail to unlock the Double-Action Revolver in GTA Online.”
Red Dead Redemption 2 is slated for release in 2018 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
