Red Dead Redemption 2’s Arthur is very methodical with his reloads.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is full of tiny details that many won’t ever notice. Rockstar spent years adding little flourishes that elevate its characters and scenes, and one such detail was only just discovered.

Reddit user Bornstellar67 recently realised that when you reload a revolver in the game, Arthur silently counts the bullets as he chambers them. His mouth movement isn’t very descriptive on its own, but in context, you can clearly see it is what he’s doing.

As Bornstellar67 points out, in the clip, Arthur isn’t seen taking damage or engaging in dialogue with any of the game’s characters. Watch it below:
