Red Dead Redemption 2 Bayou Nwa Stranger Cabin - Go in or Not

Bayou Nwa Stranger Cabin in RDR2 is a location you can visit in the game. This person, called Sonny, is one of a number of strangers in Red Dead Redemption 2. He invites you into his shack, with a promise of food. So, the question is; what to do? Should you go inside, or just leave and forget about it. Well, our Red Dead Redemption 2 Bayou Nwa Stranger Cabin guide will show you what’s best to do in this situation, and what will happen to you.

Bayou Nwa RDR2 Stranger Cabin – What to Do?

If you go exploring through Bayou Nwa, you might come across a stranger hanging out on the porch of his cabin, just south of the letter N in Nwa on the map (exact location provided below). The guy seems friendly enough; he invites you inside with the offer of food. However, he does seem sketchy, and, by this point, you know not to trust people. So, what are you supposed to do? Go inside, or stay away? Well, the short answer is: go inside, but expect bad things to happen. It’ll be worth it, though.

I say this, because the stranger, called Sonny, by the way, has some good consumables in his shack. This includes Valerian Root, which helps boost your Dead Eye. So, walk on into the stranger’s cabin, and he’ll clock you over the head with a big plank of wood. A short but disturbing cutscene later, you’ll wake up some ways away to the northeast. You’ll lose some money, and all of your core meters will be in the red. So, take a minute to rest and replenish your meters. Then, go back to Sonny’s cottage for your revenge.

Take your weapon out and break down the door. Sonny will try to run away, so gun him down. Loot him and everything he’s got in his house, then be on your way. Maybe you want to visit the Hermit Stranger to find the first part of the Torn Treasure Map. Or, maybe you want to go to the Valentine saloon and take the Raccoon Mountain Hat from Jon. Up to you.
