You can get to Mexico in RDR2 by exploiting a glitch. There’s a specific place on the map and a series of actions you have to perform to get to Mexico in Red Dead Redemption 2. Sure, there’s not much to do or see there, and it’s arguably more trouble than it’s worth. But, hey, it’s neat that you can do it. Our Red Dead Redemption 2 How to Get to Mexico Glitch guide will show you exactly how to pull it off. Fair warning: you can only do this after completing the main story campaign. So, very mild spoilers ahoy.
How to Get to Mexico in RDR2?
To get to Mexico in Red Dead Redemption 2, there is a glitch that you can exploit. Once again, you can only do this after you’ve completed the main story of the game. This is your last spoiler warning; I’m gonna keep any possible spoilers to a minimum, but still. Consider yourself warned.
Your first order of business is to go to the farthest west of New Austin. You’re looking for the place where the Sea of Coronado meets the San Luis River. Look across the water, and you’ll see a small path heading into the cliffs, like a tiny canyon. Set the waypoint across the water. You next task is to cross the river. If you try to swim, you’ll drown. So, you’ll have to make your way on horseback.
Ride to the end of the small path. It ends pretty abruptly, and this is where things get difficult. You’re gonna have to hold Forward and mash the Jump button, and even possibly steer to the left. You’re gonna have to bruteforce your way through the invisible wall, basically. Yes, a wall between the US and Mexico. Take a minute to make your own jokes. Once you manage to get the horse atop the cliff, dismount. If you’ve done everything right, you’ll slide across the flat land into Mexico.
Now, other than a weirdly detailed fort, there’s not a lot to do in Mexico. You’re gonna have to enter a cheat to spawn a horse in order to get anywhere fast, because your previous horse will stay glitched behind you. Of course, this has let loose some speculations, especially considering a weirdly detailed fort in the middle of nowhere. Could this be something that will feature more prominently in Red Dead Online? We’ll have to wait and see.
