Red Dead Prevention quarantine shirt is now available online

A quarantine-specific Red Dead Redemption t-shirt – titled Red Dead Prevention – has appeared online, showcasing a socially distant Arthur Morgan.

The t-shirt, which boasts the slogan “Red Dead Prevention” in the same typeface as the cover title, depicts the recognizable headshot of Arthur as it appears on the original box art. However, there are a few key differences unique to the Red Dead Prevention variant.

First of all, Arthur’s wearing a mask in this version. This is a bit less conspicuous than it may seem given that Red Dead Redemption 2’s ragtag band of outlaws often don balaclavas anyway. However, the other major difference is much more emphatically noticeable: Arthur’s trusty revolver has been swapped out for a spray bottle. He’s not here to shoot up a farmhouse, he’s here to thoroughly disinfect it.

You can see a photo of a fan wearing their Red Dead Prevention t-shirt in the Reddit post embedded below.

Although this post is recent, however, the Red Dead Prevention design has been around for a while longer, originally being shared almost a month ago. The caption here is “Our type of cheerleader.”

As the design has grown in popularity, so too have the forms in which it has been made available. It’s not just t-shirts anymore: you can get hoodies, iPad cases, and even tapestries with the design printed on them.

In other Red Dead Redemption 2 news, a mock trailer for the long-rumored photography role in Red Dead Online recently surfaced online. If you’ve yet to play Red Dead Redemption 2, you’re in luck, as it’s coming to Xbox Game Pass in May. Still unsure about whether or not it’s worth the time investment?
