Dataminers uncovered this one a little while ago, and now its confirmed: Rockstar is continuing its Red Dead Redemption 2 integration with GTA Online with a just-released stone hatchet. It’s a brutal-looking weapon more at home in the Wild West setting of the upcoming game than in the modern stylings of GTA Online, but GTA Online is known for its ridiculousness, after all. You can look at the new item above, along with how to unlock it below.

Maude Eccles is your point person for getting the new weapon. She should be texting you 5 bounty targets, which you can complete in order to finish the initial challenge and learn the location of the hatchet. That unlocks it in GTA Online, but in order to unlock it in Red Dead Redemption 2 you’ll need to kill 25 enemies, which will also net you a handy GTA$250,000.

The hatchet comes with a rampage ability that reduces incoming damage and increases health regeneration. Chaining kills keeps the rampage up for longer.

The stone hatchet joins the double action revolver as the second cross-title weapon being introduced into GTA Online in preparation for Red Dead Redemption 2. GTA Online has built a massive following over the years, and you can bet that Rockstar is going to be doing its best to thread a very particular needle: it wants as many GTA Online players to try out Red Dead Online as possible, but it doesn’t want them to necessarily stop playing GTA Online. Cross-title events that pull people in one direction or another.

That Red Dead Redemption 2 will be a massive hit is more or less assured, at this point. But the real question is whether or not it will be able to move past big sales at launch and achieve the unprecedented long tail that GTA 5 has been able to manage thanks to GTA Online. It might seem like a tall order to match one of the most successful games of all time, but nobody expected GTA Online to get here, either.

We’ll see what happens in the fall. Red Dead Redemption 2 is due out on October 26.
