Do you wonder where the cowboys go when they wander off the map? Well our devoted community ‘Shop Experts are here to show you.

Last week I asked everyone to help me out with some speculation. If the map for Red Dead Redemption 2 is so big, then there must be some weird places to go, and there must be even weirder places right off the edge of the map. I asked everyone to help me imagine what those places might be like. Y’all delivered some truly great cowboy roamings.

Our winner this week is Ihsus, who imagines the cowboy (plus horse) sort of warping into the middle of a massive Smash Bros. brawl of epic proportions. What’s this cowboy doing here? Why is he so calm? I don’t know, but it shows the power of the cowboy ethic. Also that fox is about to plow right into him.

It was especially hard to pick a winner this week due to a high number of excellent entries, so here are a lot of honorable mentions that I genuinely loved. Be sure to check the comments of the original post for even more great cowboy exploration images.
