Side quests – the small orders are the icing on the cake for many open world games. But while some tasks tell particularly interesting or exciting stories, there are also some side quests that are just plain crazy.
When the main story is done, or just dragging on, many like to switch to side quests . Fortunately, there are many games that literally dump their players with this kind of activity. In this flood of quests there are sometimes also some missions that leave us completely confused.
In this series of pictures we have compiled the 9 most bizarre side missions that the video game world has to offer. Most of the missions are not relevant to the main plot of the game, but we still want to clearly issue a spoiler warning at this point. Have fun!
Have you ever wondered what Geralt's faithful horse Roach goes through all day long? Then you should definitely play the mission "horse phantoms" in The Witcher 3 DLC Blood and Wine ! The sorcerer's mission is easy to miss, after all, you won't be advised of it anywhere.

It is up to you whether you make a loss in the mission series or leave the cult with a fat plus in the account. A number of crazy encounters and tasks await you on your way that have to be mastered.

In this side quest from Fable 2 you get the job from the gravedigger Victor to collect some body parts for him. That alone sounds bizarre enough.

In Fallout 4 you can discover a ship steeped in history: the USS Constitution. Based on the real model, this specimen is stuck in a house after the nuclear disaster. Your task is to help the robo-captain and his mechanical crew to get the ship ready again and send it on its final voyage. However, this is of shorter duration than you initially suspected …
The South Park: The Stick of Truth is absolutely insane shouldn't be a secret. However, in the course of the game, in addition to flaming farts, anal probes and panty gimps, you stumble across a secondary task that at first glance doesn't seem to fit into the picture: “Find Jesus”.
Pastor Maxi gives you this task in front of the town church, which you have to enter afterwards. Of course you don't find Jesus through praying and repenting – but in a wonderfully stupid game of hide-and-seek. Your reward: If you have found Jesus several times in a row, he will stand by you in your struggles as an incantation. There he mows down your opponents with his assault rifle. South Park remains South Park …
This side mission from Borderlands 2 is neither difficult nor time consuming. Nevertheless, it remains in the memory of many fans to this day – simply because it is so bizarre.

A computer program in lacquer and leather? A raptor king? And a chase through the innards of a soft drink mascot? The DLC "Enter the Dominatrix" is a whole collection of bizarre missions that are totally crazy even by the standards of Saints Row 4.
Because of this expansion alone, it's worth digging out Saints Row from the moth box again. And while you're at it, you can also save Christmas from the demonic Santa Claws in “How the Saints saved Christmas”.
