Red Dead Redemption 2 – All about Random Encounters.

Random Encounters in Red Dead Redemption 2 these are side missions that run parallel to the main story and often pave the way for even more activity in the vast open world of the game.

Random Encounters are optional and will not appear on the map automatically, being marked with a question mark and a white mark as you approach.

From here, you will need to further specify the location, before being subjected to the initial mission. Some of them are related to collectibles and other activities and others are more complex missions – and the decision to proceed and complete them is entirely on your side.
