Fences are vendors in RDR2 that you can find in several locations. Finding Red Dead Redemption 2 locations of a fence is pretty lucrative. This is because the RDR 2 fence merchant sells and buys a lot of stuff, including poison arrows, jewelry and gold bars, and trinkets for passive buffs. Finding all of his locations will really pay off. With that in mind, here’s our Red Dead Redemption 2 Fence Vendor Locations to show you exactly where to find them.
Where to Find Fence Vendor RDR2 Location in Rhodes?
One of the first locations you can find the fence vendor in Red Dead Redemption 2 is in Rhodes. Well, a little bit outside of the town of Rhodes and to the north, to be exact. The outpost is south of Mattock Pond, and southeast of Southfield Flats. The game will basically take you by the hand to Rhodes some time during Chapter 2, so that’s when you’ll basically have the first chance to meet the fence, story-wise.
Saint Denis Fence Location in Red Dead Redemption 2
The second location that the story will take you to and that has a fence is Saint Denis. You’ll be visiting the city of Saint Denis during Chapter 4. The city is in Lemoyne, at the bank of the river. The fence’s store is in the east of Saint Denis; at the top tip of the S in the word Denis on the map.
Van Horn Trading Post – Where to Find New Hanover RDR2 Fence?
The third location where you can find a fence in Red Dead Redemption 2 is Van Horn Trading Post. Said post is south of the mining city of Annesburg, which you’ll come across later in the game, around Chapter 5 or 6. The Van Horn Trading Post is on the bank of the river, a bit to the north from the Van Horn Mansion. The fence is basically at the edge of the river, in the east corner of the trading outpost.
Red Dead Redemption 2 Emerald Ranch Fence Merchant Location
Lastly, the fourth location where you can find a fence in RDR2 is Emerald Ranch; a small location near Emerald Station in The Hearlands area of New Hanover. This location is not as much a store as it is a shack in the south of the ranch. It’s a little outside of Emerald Ranch, but not too far; you can follow the road to him; the store will be on your right-hand side if you’re coming from the ranch proper.
What do Fences do in Red Dead Redemption 2?
Fences in Red Dead Redemption 2, just like in real life, are purveyors of ill-gotten goods. They’re willing to sell you stuff that other, more reputable stores do not carry, such as dynamite and the lock breaker. And, as we’ve mentioned above, they are also willing to take stolen items, such as gold bars and jewelry, off of your hands. So, yeah; learn the locations of the fences, since, depending on your actions, you’ll be visiting them very often.
