Lagras, Red Dead Redemption 2

This is bayou country in the wild of Old America - where you're going to need a shotgun to ward off the pesky 'gators.

  • The river: Lagras river is a great fishing spot with a bait and tackle shop just across the way.

Things to see:

  • The Department of Death, El Marrow: The Department of Death (DOD) is responsible for harvesting souls in the Land of the Living. Vacancies are always open and commission for new sales agents is excellent.
  • The Blue Casket, Rubacava: Open mic nights at the Blue Casket are great fun. Just don’t get talking to the beatnik revolutionaries.
  • Feline Meadows, Rubacava: The cat track is surely one of the first things you need to check out when you get to Rubacava. Take a bet and watch the giant cats streak down the track to the cheers of the crowd in attendance. 
  • Day of the Dead celebrations: If you’re around on the Day of the Dead (beginning October 31 – November 2), catch the celebrations in El Marrow. A carnival atmosphere and festivities await.

  • Death Mountain: This volatile volcano spits ash and flows with lava, so admire the view from afar as opposed to getting too close.
  • Lost Woods: Located inside the Great Hyrule Forest, this wooded area is a magical stretch of closely-knit trees and lush grassland, and one that’s home to many secrets.
