The Meteor Crater...

Recommended Posts

Deadman2112

So I was up in the area of the impact crater, having a better look at it.

Mostly trying to get a better idea of it's trajectory.

 

When I was there, I noticed there is what looks like a path, cleared of pebbles and rocks, starting at the center, spiraling outward.

 

Took a few snaps of it...

Looked up impact craters and this is not a natural pattern they create.

 

Yet after looking at a few videos, it looks as if they got all the other features of an impact crater correct. Considering that the rest of it is modeled properly, I can't help but wonder...

Who made the spiral pattern?

 

Also, considering that the crater can be seen right at the start of the game, and that pattern would have taken time to make...

Wouldn't this suggest that this meteor impact had nothing to do with the meteor shower?

 

..::EDIT::..

Updated info below. See post from March 1st...

It's near Annesberg. The game says there are 3 meteors but you can only find two. Apparently they decrease heat damage or something.

3rd one has got to be somewhere,  right?

 

Even in the LotE satchel it says 1/3 meteorites

 

If you sell them do you lose the bonus?

I wish there was a simple stat screen that listed all modifiers under related topics so you can see what you're missing in bonus items.

You mean you don't like having 3 seperate stat screens which all just show the same info? Whoda thunk it

The location of the 3rd fragment, is unanswered...

 

Not sure about the bonus.

...although I've never seen a difference between having it and how long before your core drops in hot temperatures...

So I'm thinking you only get the bonus if you get all 3?

If there was a noticeable difference from having 2 of them, then the difference was so small that it appeared to have no effect at all.

Still on the hunt for the last meteor rock, as I'm sure many are, and thought I'd update anyone interested...

 

So, this is what is known so far...

 

1. We all know it says 2 of 3 so there should be a 3rd one. (Stress the words "should be" at this point)

 

2. There is a grayed out "USE" feature associated with them when you view them in the satchel menue. It's purpose is still unknown.

 

3. Apparently there is a glitch that allows the player to get a 3rd meteorite. I saw this in a video that looked legit, but I personally haven't done it to see if it's real, so I can't confirm this at this point.

..::Start EDIT 3/7/19::..

(The glitch looks as if it doesn't work. Or if it does, I couldn't get it to work.)

..::End EDIT 3/7/19::..

 

That said, I think I may have found something that could possibly be a lead on finding it the correct way and a possible place to use them once all 3 have been located.

 

Lots of people are on the hunt for this thing. Most of them are probably looking for it on the ground.

 

As I understand it, a few think it could possibly be found by fishing. (Similar to how you can fish out the arm of the mayor's assistant, if you made the choice to kill him.) However I have fished the hell out of the areas they suggested and still nothing.

 

Considering the amount of people looking on the ground and fishing for it I'm starting to think that maybe the reason no one has found it is because someone (an NPC) could have it already.

 

Based on that idea I've been trying to find something that might point in that direction...

 

So, I looked into the hill folk, but have found nothing that appears to connect them. Then I looked into the the night folk, but once again, I hit a dead end.

 

The last group I looked into was the Native Indians and I found something interesting.

 

It looks as if the Native Indians are the only ones that repeatedly use spirals in their artwork and rituals...

 

0_0.jpg

 

(I looked into the use of this symbol in their culture and it is tied to their beliefs regarding the life cycle.)

 

So I went to the Wapiti reservation to have a look around when I noticed that, inside many of the jars and baskets at the reservation were an assortment of fine stones.

 

I was able to tip over one of the baskets and get a snap of it, but the jars would not tip over...

 

0_0.jpg

 

So considering the use of spirals in their rituals/artwork, the spiral at the impact site, and the fact that they collect fine stones/gems...

Could this be a connection?

Possibly.

 

It's where I suspect it might be used once all 3 are found, but it's just a hunch, but it's based on this...

 

The real life serpent was built by Native Indians, and get this...

The hill/mound that the real life one is built on, is the epicenter of a huge meteor impact crater.

 

Google has this on it...

 

Serpent Mound crater, also known as the Serpent Mound Disturbance, is an eroded meteorite impact crater in Ohio, United States. ... It is classified as a complex crater because it features a central uplift, a transition zone, and a ring graben (a ring-shaped trough in the outer part of the crater).

 

 

...the "central uplift" they talk about is the hill/mound it is built on.

The meteor is a tiny ass rock in a game filled with tiny ass rocks

 

Needle in a haystack would be an apt description 

 

It's weird, since the first two are super obvious,  you'd think the last one would be as well

Went here last night after seeing this topic and its one of my favourite places on the map now.

I had fond the Abandoned Trading Post in my first game but totally missed the crater and the Meteor House.

I'd share this for anyone interested in looking for it on the ground...

0_0.jpg

This way everyone knows just what to look for.

Yes it is a small rock and no doubt a needle in a haystack, but it's not as small as something like the Accent Arrowhead.

 

They are about the same size as a can of food, are black in color, and when viewed up close, look like two palm sized oblate spheroids that have been stuck together.

(That's palm as in "a hand", not the "tree/plant").

They also glow when in viewed in Eagle Eye.

 

..::Edit::..

Here is a shot of it with a can of food for scale...

0_0.jpg

The meteorite fragment is slightly to the right of the empty can.

So, seeing how Rockstar confirms there’s a third meteorite. I believe a group effort would yield best results. I like the theory of it being at Wapiti. Maybe hanging around there more could be worth it. I’m also think that it could possibly be in GTA. Considering there already items obtainable this way. One thought I had was overlaying both The physical maps of GTA & RDR2 ( maps that came with games ). I never bought a physical copy of GTA 🤷🏽‍♂️   Another avenue I thought was MAYBE linked to the ufo’s. I know about the convo of someone fishing a “ strange rock “ but haven’t heard it for my self. Lastly, have a strong feeling it’s not obtainable until the epilogue. LETS CRACK THIS TOGETHER!!

^Rockstar didn't confirm anything, that's just from a support email. They don't know what they're talking about.

I was under the impression that the files were searched and only two meteors exist

This is what I thought, with the speculation the third would be part of a dlc.  If it was in the game wouldn’t the guide book have the location/requirements?  With all the things either removed or unfinished in this game the reality of a story dlc seemed likely a long time ago but now it’s more likely this is a unfinished game that’s been abandoned until you buy it again for next gen.

Ok wow I had read a few articles claiming rockstar confirmed a 3rd. Why I wanted on a forum to see what has and hasn’t been done. I was thinking more about the wapiti theory, and thought possibly your honor matters. Maybe a full honor John and possibly with the trinket the chief gives u

Well if it was abandoned, like other aspects of the game. It could just as very well be a wild goose chase to keep players on!! 🤷🏽‍♂️ Still would like to know for sure tho

I would imagine that the book would reference it.

 

I appreciate the vote of confidence above on my idea and approach to this but it's kind of like a nice car without an engine.

Sure it looks good from the outside, but it's not going anywhere.

 

I've seen a few ideas where people claimed it might be tied to that place down in New Austin.

 

But I have to disagree with that.

 

There's a reason why they put the first two right next to each other.
That's how debris from falling objects work.

It would all pretty much be clustered near itself.

 

I know this isn't real life but they seem to have followed real life logic in their approach to these creations, and because of that it would have been in the same area.

 

Last but not least 
I'm pretty sure the game file guys said they found no code that indicated its existence.

 

As Cutter And others pointed out above.

After that discovery was made, the assumption was that either it was supposed to be in future DLC 
or it was cut because of some sort of bug related to it.

 

I'm not going to sit here and say that I definitively know it's not in the game because I know nothing about the game file.

But I will say the odds are not looking good.

 

I wish that there was some sort of resolution to this but sadly all I can say at this point is...

Sigh.

Well with everything that has been found in the game files that was either removed or just not used, trinkets/talismans to the missing princess there’s a sh*t ton of mystery surrounding these.  Small hope for something with this update tonight/tomorrow but I still believe it’s mostly abandoned content, I hope I’m wrong but going by R* past decisions my hope faded long ago.  But we’ll learn things in 10-11 hours from now when this “update” goes live and if story gets any love.
