It’s always nice to think that while hackers are destroying your game experience and generally making an unfounded nuisance out of themselves for no reason other than being ornery and contrarian, at least some of them have a sense of the absurd. You don’t want hackers in Red Dead Online, no, but at least it appears that now said hackers are running about killing people with bizarre two-headed skeletons instead of more prosaic means.
So it still sucks, but at least you have one of the strangest conceivable stories about how and why you died. “Yeah, a skeleton with two heads ran up to me and headbutted me until I died. Yes, two heads. No, I don’t know why it was a skeleton.”
Of course, all of this is from player accounts rather than anything like news posts (you wouldn’t expect Rockstar to announce the cool new hack that’s hitting people with skeleton headbutts), so there’s an air of rumor to it. Still… two-headed hacker skeletons. That’s so bizarre you almost want it to be true.
