Red Dead Redemption 2 Mod Allows Players to Be Any Animal or NPC

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now on PC and, as expected, the modding community surrounding Rockstar's games is already hard at work. Hours before the open-world western game was released, modders had already published skins for protagonist Arthur Morgan, including a Joker skin inspired by the new movie. Now several days past Red Dead Redemption 2's launch on PC, modders have already stepped up their game.

The latest mod is actually a basic trainer. Trainers are mods or programs that allow players to modify the game, often on the fly, by altering memory values being stored by the game in a computer's memory. This new Red Dead Redemption 2 trainer, dubbed Lenny's Simple Trainer, allows the player to do some surprisingly cool things. For example, the player can change their in-game model into any of the game's NPCs and animals, replete with their standard animations and abilities -- like being able to fly as  an eagle.

Players simply need to download the trainer, named Lenny's Simple Trainer, and then transfer the files included in it over to their Red Dead Redemption 2 installation folder. Then there's a .ini file in the folder that can be edited with a text editor. Players will need to find a list of model IDs, which can be found by searching for "Red Dead Redemption 2 PED models list" in Google. Then, just copy the model ID for the character you want to play as into the .ini file into either the "Model1=" or "Model2=" part of the file. Go in-game and pressing F7 or F8 will turn your character into the model of choice.

Lenny's Simple Trainer does several other things, too, in case transforming into an animal or another Red Dead Redemption 2 NPC isn't particularly exciting. Pressing F5 teleports the player 3 meters forward and can be held down to travel very vast. And F9-F11 can be used to transport to specific locations like the town of Valentine. These locations can, of course, be edited in the same .ini file where the models were found. These are just a few useful tricks players can use in Red Dead Redemption 2 single player.

It should go without saying, but Red Dead Redemption 2 players won't want to use this mod or others when playing Red Dead Online. It's unlikely that the trainer will work with Red Dead Online, but having these files in the wrong folder could be flagged by Rockstar and could get your account banned. The game hasn't been out for even a week, so no one should be getting their Red Dead Online account banned already.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
