Red Dead Redemption 2 Stranger Statue Puzzle
The Stranger Statue Puzzle has a very tricky solution to it and it’s most likely that you’ll get stuck at it in your first try.
Don’t worry, as this RDR2 Puzzle Guide will help you complete it step by step from finding the puzzle, statues, and solving them as quickly as possible. This puzzle also rewards you with x3 Golden Bars which can be sold at a fence for $500 each.
Let’s start by finding locations of these hidden statues. You’ll find this cave to the right of Donner Falls on the map and near to the Grizzlies East region. Look out for a small opening in the white rocks which is also not far from the road.
When inside you will see 7 different statues around a statue of a woman with wings waiting to be solved.
Now you can just interact with the statue and that’s when Arthur will start drawing these statues in his journal calling it “Stranger Statues”. Each of these statues come with certain fingers which you will need to pay attention to.
Now for the solution, you’ll have to find a painting at a rock structure in Window Rock. Just look at your map and it’s going to be located right in between the D and O alphabets of Window Rock.
This painting consists of all these stranger statues with an eagle next to them. Every eagle in this painting consists of a different number of feathers. These numbers are 2, 4, 5, 8, 3, 7, 6 and write them down as you’ll need them again.
Now once you are done with the painting, head back towards the cave and now all you have to do is push the correct buttons located in front of each statue to solve the puzzle.
In case, if you push one wrong button then you can reset it by pushing the button at the back of that statue.
Each statue comes with a different number so to solve it you just have to press 2, 5, 3, and 7 in the correct order as mentioned.
Once you press these, an audio will play and that’s it. Now just interact with a base of the statue to get $1500 worth of gold bars.
That’s all you need to know to complete RDR2 Stranger Puzzle and get yourself some quick money to spend in the West World.
