What is the Red Dead Online Blackwater Dock Glitch?

Players have worked out how to kill others without being able to be shot at themselves. They’re doing this at the pier in the town of Blackwater, and they’re using it to effectively be invincible.

The way that the glitch works is players find the ramp that leads into the water, jump off it, and swim back towards the pier area of the dock. Before they reach the pier, however, players are taking a left ahead of the last wooden panel – before the pier – and swimming through a small gap in the dock.

Entering first person mode seems to help complete this action. If you then continue swimming until you reach a tiny piece of land underneath the dock – effectively where land meets water – you can camp underneath the walkway. Your head pokes out from it, and you’re able to fire your weapons from a crouched position.
