If you're looking for some strange and hilarious glitches, the open world of Red Dead Redemption 2 is the place to visit. Just take a look at this one, a cursed road glitch that'll set ablaze everything in its path, including your horse.

Rockstar's mammoth has been receiving nothing but a praise since its release and has scored in the opening weekend, which is the best opening weekend by a game ever. A game so good someone put a curse on it? On a road more precisely. It's just outside the town of Rhodes, and apparently, a specific part of it is riddled with fire. 

Whenever a certain object or creature comes into contact with the invisible inferno, they start burning. No AI characters are aware of this, which results in multiple burned bodies piling up in the middle of the road as shown in the video. Players have been sharing videos of their glitchy experience with some of them looking pretty nasty.

If you've been playing the game you'll know the importance of your steed with bonding, feeding and cleaning mechanics and horse permadeath. Also, horses are your main mode of transportation so you'll probably spend more time on the back of your galloping buddy than in camps or saloons. 

We suggest you ignore the route for the time being, whether you're riding your horsey or talking a walk otherwise you may end up in an unexpected roast.

Of course, glitches are a common thing in a huge open world games and Rockstar will probably look to fix this one as soon as possible, but for the time being, Rockstar has yet to address the glitch so we don't have any confirmation if the patch is down in the pipeline.

Numerous glitches have been floating around since Red Dead Redemption 2 hit the shelves two weeks ago. Some of them are quite bizarre while others are pretty hilarious, which inspired us to pick  encountered in the game since its release. Also, if you're undecided about horse names take a look at this for inspiration.
