A Red Dead Redemption 2 player discovered a glitch that caused a wild boar to hover in midair while they were fishing. The glitch caught the attention of the game’s community, with users making jokes and coming up with creative names for the phenomenon, like “Aurora Boarealis.” While glitches are not uncommon in Red Dead Redemption 2, they often provide amusing experiences for players and are shared online.
One Red Dead Redemption 2 player found a pig flying in the air while fishing in the game, and the strange glitch caught the attention of the game’s community. While the spotlight might be focused on the recently released PS4 and Switch ports of the original Red Dead Redemption, clips like the one about a levitating boar show players still enjoy returning to the 2018 game.
When it comes to animals, the world of Red Dead Redemption 2 is teeming with diverse wildlife for players to come in contact with as they go through the game. From birds and deer to bears and alligators, there are many species of animals to see in the game’s wilderness. Despite many of these wildlife encounters being realized in impressive quality by Rockstar Games, one player stumbled upon an animal sighting that likely did not unfold the way the developer had intended.
Recently, a Red Dead Redemption 2 player known as Stunning_Vegetable18 made a weird discovery while fishing. According to the Reddit post by the user, they spotted a wild boar hovering in midair. Fortunately, the gamer included a screenshot of the bizarre encounter to substantiate their claim. The image showed the player looking out over a body of water where they were fishing. Everything seemed normal except for a boar floating over the water in the distance.
Unsurprisingly, this strange phenomenon caught the attention of numerous Red Dead Redemption 2 players on Reddit. Since Stunning_Vegetable18 shared their image of the flying pig, the game’s community has left comments about the glitched swine. The post already has several hundred upvotes, with numerous users making jokes about the funny image. “So pigs do fly?!” one user quipped. In addition, others claimed that the phenomenon should be considered an “Aurora Boarealis” in reference to the levitating swine.
While discovering a flying pig is not a usual sight, Red Dead Redemption 2 has no shortage of glitches. Since the game was released in 2018, many players have encountered strange things often due to bugs, with some shared on social media. Beyond this flying pig, one fan recently discovered a glitch that turned rain into blood in Red Dead Redemption 2, while another player found a bug that caused a person to float.
Even though developers look to squash as many bugs as possible before releasing a game, some will inevitably slip through the cracks. However, a few of them are more amusing than anything else, such as Stunning Vegetable18’s flying pig glitch. As players continue to play the classic Rockstar game, it will be interesting to see what bizarre and potentially unintended occurrences are shared online in the coming days.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
