Red Dead Redemption 2 is a stunningly immersive game – one rich with detail and full of historical accuracy – you know, minus the aliens and other weird stuff hidden in the world.
An unfortunate reality of America during the era of Red Dead Redemption 2 of course, is that you’re likely to bump into the white supremacy group known as the KKK at some point on your travels.
Frankly that’s also an unfortunate reality of modern day America, but a much less likely one, I grant you.
The good news is that this is a video game though, and players having plenty of fun with all the options available to them whenever they happen to stumble across the KKK during one of their meetings.
As it transpires, you have a couple of choices when you find the KKK. You can open fire straight away and kill the lot of them, which I’m sure would be a knee-jerk reaction for most of us.
However, if you can show a little more self control and allow the meeting to play out, you can watch the idiots end themselves by their own hand.
Certain players have reported seeing KKK members crush themselves underneath their giant cross, for example. Others still have seen the hapless racists actually set fire to themselves by mistake.
Take a look at some of the possible outcomes below:

I stumbled across a KKK meeting in the wild yesterday. Hog tied the leader and threw him on the burning cross. https://t.co/vhLIcLYoaT

If I wasn’t sure if I thought Red Dead Redemption 2 was Game Of The Year material before, I definitely do now.
