There are more ways to sell your loot than heading to the general store in Red Dead Redemption 2, if you’re willing to duck behind the nearest wall in case anyone’s looking that is.
As some of your loot can be obtained through questionable means, such as a robbery, you’ll need a fence to sell your hot items to. There are four fences to be found across the country that will take stolen loot or gold bars off your hands.
Here’s how to unlock every fence in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Red Dead Redemption 2 where to find a fence
The fences will sometimes be found hidden in a shack or in a storefront, depending on their locations. As well as buying looted items, they also sell special items such as crafting recipes, masks, explosives, and melee weapons.
Emerald Ranch Fence
The first fence can be found near the Emerald Ranch and you’ll be introduced to him during the Pouring Fourth Oil mission in Chapter 2. He’s the only fence that will buy stolen wagons from you.
New Hanover Fence
The next can be found in Van Horn Trading Post in the East of New Hanover.
Another fence is located in the Lemoyne region, just Northeast of Rhodes.
Saint Denis Fence
The last fence can be found in in the East of Saint Denis. This is the fence who you can sell the majority of your gold bars to for $500 each.
Where to get the lockbreaker
The lockbreaker is a tool you’ll use to open lock boxes and other sealed items. Using the lockbreaker means you won’t make a loud noise when looting. The only other way to open a lock box is to shoot the lock off, which obviously attracts attention.
You will earn the lockbreaker during Chapter 3’s mission Friends in Very Low Places. If you need to buy one before that, you can get one from the fence in Saint Denis for $25.
The fence is just one of the special merchants in Red Dead Redemption 2, we’ve listed all of the Trapper locations too.
