Favourite area of the map?


Recommended Posts

for me, rockstar created the most beautiful and real game world when they made rdr2, the map feels like such a huge area, encompassing deserts, forests, mountains, rivers, waterfalls, prairies and plains and whatnot. I've genuinely just stopped dead in my tracks while playing a mission to just take it all in - but i've never really settled on one favourite area. it seems to me you need a bit of variation or you'll get bored.


anyone else feel the same? some places i find myself coming back to just to enjoy the atmosphere. i'd say tumbleweed has a particularly creepy vibe about it that i really like - saint denis is probably the greatest little town in sandbox game history for sheer beauty and depth. i'd probably take cumberland forest as my favourite rural area if i had to pick.

I’m not sure it’s my favourite but I know the area between Horseshoe Overlook and Valentine like the back of my hand.  I know the way to Clemens Point from there pretty well too as well as to Rhodes.  Once I got to Saint Denis though I stopped being able to travel just by the sights, probably due to how big it is.  Could’ve done with spending more time getting to know it probably.

There is an area in Scarlett Meadows by Robard Farm, there is a tree between two scarecrows, and under that tree is a campfire. That is one of my favorite areas. 


Also all of Rio Bravo/Gaptooth Ridge, hard to pick one spot there, maybe Del Lobo rock

I like spending time in Roanoke Ridge during the day. Near the rivers mostly or around Van Horn Trading post.


The Grizzlies is another fave spot.

Scarlett Meadows.


i 100% agree. i just love the red soil and southern charm. in fact i would say lemoyne might be my favorite state. because i also love the bayou too. although im not a huge fan of saint denis. i mean its cool that they added it. but im with arthur and john that the countryside and wide open areas are better. especially for a western. for gta its fine to have a big city. but its different for a western.


i will also add another one of my favorite areas is the heartlands. i love the cool twin stack pass and wide open plains. its very nice. and valentine is probably my favorite town.  maxresdefault.jpg

I love the area around the Wapiti Reservation and Calumet Ravine. It's one of my favorite fishing spots. Just beautiful and peaceful up there.

The Heartlands of New Hanover, Tall Trees, New Austin and the swamps of Lemoyne.

Wholeheartedly agree the playable map is beautiful. In terms of meeting all my needs , Saint Denis is always the winner if I want to cover all the bases(Sell to fence, ammo stockup, new clothes etc.)With that being said, Tall Tree's forest and the Bayou NWA/Black water marsh at night provide some of the best atmosphere I've ever experienced in a game....Pretty much the only time in a video game that I've found myself drawing my gun and spinning on the spot in fear xD
