Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare mythical creatures guide

4 Horses of the Apocalypse



Location: Tall Trees Area, West Elizabeth region

This smog emitting horse that can be “nearly impossible to kill”, can be found at the far north area of Tall Trees and to the northeast of Cochinay. Once you break the foul beast and make it yours, you will have it at your disposal until you either kill it- like I did 30 seconds after getting it, because it fell off a cliff- or until you grab your self another horse.



Location: Gaptooth Ridge, New Austin region

The fiery horse known as War can be found in and around Gap Tooth Ridge. Easier to tame than Pestilence, War can set enemies on fire and amazingly enough not you- since you know, he’s between your legs. Again, when you hit Gap Tooth Ridge, wander about until the blue circle pops up letting you know that there is a Mythological Creature around.



Location: Just south of Chuparosa, East of Tesoro Azul, Nuevo Paraiso Region
Time: Midnight

Famine can be found a few places in Mexico, but all are within the triangle of Chuparosa /Ojoda Diablo/Barranca. Head there around midnight and the black and white horse with locusts flying around it will be roaming around the area.  Famine, like the other horses has unlimited stamina and while the locusts that surround its body are an interesting effect, constantly hearing the buzzing while riding can get aggravating.



NOTE: Only appears after rank 3 of the Four Horses of the Apocalypse Challenge has been completed

Location: Random, awarded to the player after completing the game

Death pops up every once in a while you are traversing around the map. Death is a white horse that has a cloud of smoky mist around it and trailing it when it runs. When you do grab it, it will instantly kill an enemy that it tramples and makes life much easier. If you don’t find Death during your travels, you will also grab it at the end of the campaign.

    Also, War, can be found around the McFarlanes Ranch. I have found it there about 5 or 6 times.

    Can you get the deed 2 the unicorn?

    I got death when i beat the DLC. He is just sitting there when dead morston comes out of the ground. You diont even have to break him. Make sure to have the other three before you finish the story though. To get level 5 on "four horsemen of the apocolyps" you need to get all four horses and then run down one of every type of zombie with death. Fucking hilarious when you do that cause their head pops.

    I think it's hilarious that people keep accidentally killing Pestilence, I never killed Pestilence. xD I can't even remember where I GOT Pestilence. O.o
  • chase-hogan - May 30, 2012 9:07 p.m.

    How do you keep War and Pestilance?
  • grace-iredale - November 24, 2012 12:18 p.m.

    You finish the game and get the blood pacts (deeds) for all four horses.

    Don't know if this was asked or not, might have, but I can't really find the last Sasquatch. I read that it was in the far north and that it's not along the path. That I has to stay in the north to see any more Sasquatches. There is this question mark marker far north but it's off the map and I can't get to it. How can I find him DX!?
  • kole-bornhoft - February 8, 2013 1:35 p.m.

    Look near the top of the map for the green question mark
  • josh-campbell - April 3, 2012 3:53 p.m.

  • briangodfather - December 29, 2010 9:38 p.m.

  • REDDEADREDEMPTION - December 29, 2010 7:29 p.m.

    I accidentally shot Pestilence while cleaning out a town of zombies. But it did say that Pestilence was nearly impossible to kill. Then again I was using a gatling gun.
