New Red Dead Redemption 2 Mod Lets You Spawn a Flyable Hot Air Balloon
I’m still waiting for the day when the modding society figures out how to get airplanes and helicopters into RDR 2, but until then this hot air balloon mod by Krank will have to do. Once installed you can get a balloon wherever you are and fly it around freely, getting some astonishing bird’s eye views of Red Dead’s divine slice of the Wild West.
The balloon moves way quicker than it realistically should. Don’t expect to find an authentic simulation of a hot air balloon here. But it’s fun being able to float around that huge world without being stuck on the back of a horse. The new version of the mod added inertia and smoother controls, and it even has controller support if you play Red Dead 2 with a gamepad.
Installing the mod is quite simple as dropping a file into your game directory. Just make sure you have Script Hook RDR2 otherwise it won’t work. To get a balloon, hit F8 and you’re ready to fly. Just don’t go online with mods installed or you might get banned.
