You’d be forgiven for forgetting that today, February 29, is Leap Day. You know, the day that comes about every four years because calendars and planetary rotations are weird. In any case, Red Dead Redemption 2 developer Rockstar Games definitely did not forget, and threw in a little treat for observant cowboys and cowgirls in the game’s online mode.
Challenges include jumping from a horse onto a moving train, jumping from a horse onto a moving wagon, jumping from a horse onto…another horse, and jumping onto a horse from a height of at least three meters.
Nice one, Rockstar.
Reddit user jason21521 also pointed out that a daily challenge to “successfully fend off an ambush” could also count as “getting jumped.” Bit of a leap itself, but we’ll go with it.

We’re pretty sure that Rockstar would prefer people to leap onto horses rather than leap into bed, given that a modder created a new version of the infamous Hot Coffee mod.
