Red Dead Redemption 2 Bounty Hunting Locations and Walkthrough

Our RDR 2 Bounty Hunting Guide will definitely help you in your journey to become the best bounty hunter in town and in the whole world of RDR! Just sit back and watch the magic happen.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Bounty Hunting Locations

Red Dead Redemption 2 allows you to hunt for outlaws set to you by the Sheriff of the town.

You can head to the Sheriff’s office to occasionally find posters of outlaws depicting ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ or ‘Wanted Alive’ displayed on the noticeboard at the office. Some targets can also be found at the depot.

The stronger the outlaw you face, the better the rewards. Apparently, Rockstar doesn’t want you to get bored with Bounty Hunting.

But fear not because this RDR2 Guide will definitely help you find and hunt the various Bounty Hunters, their locations, and how to find them. To bring a target back alive, you need to knock them out or lasso them, back to the Sheriff.

How to Unlock – To unlock Bounty Hunting, you need to complete the mission ‘Good, Honest, Snake Oil’ that is available from the start of Chapter 2 to the end of Chapter 5. Some of the tips you might need before hunting an outlaw are:

  • Inspect a poster at the sheriff station/post office.
  • The general location of the target will be marked on your map. Head there and the outlaw should be in that location somewhere. Use your skills to figure out the exact location of the target, usually inside a well-fortified location or a camp, and defeat them
  • Always try to capture the enemy ‘alive’, as some hunts will fail if you kill the outlaw.
  • After you turn in the outlaw in the good hands of the law, be sure to collect your bounty at the desk of the Sheriff or the person in charge.

1. Lindsay Woffard

Conditions: Complete Chapter 2’s ‘Good, Honest, Snake Oil’.
Location: Fort east of Emerald Station, Saint Denis

Lindsay Woffard is one of the targets as an outlaw. You can turn him in DEAD or ALIVE. Your choice.

The poster for this outlaw can be found into the Saint Denis police station. Once you view the poster of this outlaw, you can find the target to the east of Emerald Station, in a well-guarded fort.

There are a lot of enemies here so be sure to be well equipped for this task. You will be outnumbered.

2. Ellie Anne Swan

Conditions: Complete Chapter 2’s ‘Good, Honest, Snake Oil’.
Location: East of Wallace Station

Ellie is an outlaw who is in love with her boyfriend but has angered some people. She’s the Yandere type. You need to turn her in ALIVE. Killing her will fail the hunt.

You can find the poster for this lover-outlaw in the area of Valentine, in its sheriff station. Take the mission and you can find Ellie slightly to the east of Wallace Station with her boyfriend.

Deal with her first because apparently, she likes her boyfriend a lot. If you try to hurt her boyfriend, she will attack you with a knife.

3. Joshua Brown

Conditions: Complete Chapter 2’s ‘Blessed are the Meek?’ and wait until Strawberry is free from the lockdown.

Mark Johnson needs to be brought back ALIVE. Killing him will fail the mission.

Head to the Rhodes’ train station and you will find the poster for Mark there. Accept the bounty and look for a camp just northeast of the train station.

Mark will surrender himself on sight. Take him back to the sheriff’s as soon as you can, because you might get ambushed pretty soon. During the journey, Mark may break himself free. Use a lasso to tie him when that happens.

Anthony Foreman needs to be brought back ALIVE. Killing him will fail the mission.

You will find the poster inside the Saint Denis police station. Head towards the Doyle’s Tavern and question the bartender up front. Foreman will make a break for it during your conversation.

Chase him down and catch him. You must spare him once again though, and hogtie him back to the sheriff station.
