Red Dead Redemption 2 Valentine Doctor - Locked Back Room Door

How to open security door at Valentine doctor’s office?

When you try opening the door the usual way, nothing will happen. What you need to do is knock on the door first. Someone will open the peep hole and tell you off. It’s obviously a private party and they don’t want you there.

You then have to go to the doctor (standing behind the register) and point your gun at him. Select the option to rob the back room (up on the Dpad), and he’ll lead you into the back room and deceive whoever’s behind the heavy metal door into opening them. Now all you have to do is go in, kill the bandits and take everything that isn’t nailed down.

We managed to snag a Schofield Revolver and about $100. Don’t forget to raid the safe as well as the tables and other surfaces in the room. Be sure to make it quick, too, as you’ll want to leave before the law shows up.

How to rob Valentine doctor without getting wanted bounty?

When you start murdering the bandits in the back room, you’ll get a bounty on your head. Avoiding the wanted status here would be very nice, but there seems to be no way around it. We’ve tried killing the doctor so he can’t call for help, killing them all silently and nearly simultaneously (deadeye plus throwing knives), throwing a stick of dynamite into the room, etc. Everytime, we’d end up with a bounty. You can keep it low by wearing a mask and killing only the three bandits.

If you end up getting stuck at another point, you might want to check out some of the other guides we have. We've written about mysteries like the missing person Gavin, the Rhodes Gunsmith prisoner, the locked door at Valentine doctor. We also have instructional guides that show how to rob stores without getting bounty or where to sell jewelry and gold bars. If it's collectibles or key items you're after, we've found all the Penny Dreadful comic books, Chick's treasure map location, or that famous pipe for Dutch. Finally, if you don't care to explore the map yourself, you could take a look at our Watson's Cabin and Catfish Jackson's Homestead locations guides. In the latest Red Dead Online Moonshiners Update you'll have a chance to find Navy Revolver and Best Shack Locations.

    I once saw a man on backdoor of backroom and he said he will be back tomorrow. I just didn’t check what time it was… late afternoon maybe. I wonder if that is the key to do this heist succesfully wihtout bounty.

      I just saw what you’re talking about, that was the deputy at the door. He was given a bribe and said it better all be there, then walked off and said he’d be back tomorrow. I don’t think this is a way in because they didn’t open the door, just the slot.

        If you head to.the back of the store where you peer through the window, to the side there is a big metal door. Knock on it and wait fir the dude inside to tell you to get lost. You will now be able to peer through the window again and get the storeman to open the door for access.

    Just kill them all and the wait for the auto save when you loot money, make sure you get the gun first then the money and then just load the auto save. You come back out side of the office with no bounty

    I went in mask on..use the bow and arrow so there’s no gun shots…use dead eye and quickly take everyone out before they begin shooting. I did this and looted everyone. Blew out the back wall then took the gun on the table in the box. Only one lawman came in and I took him out in the same manner (dead eye and bow/arrow). $1.50 bounty.

      That sounds like the best option!! Thanks for that

    2. H

      I tried this and there a small step to note, when the lawman comes in, take him out with dead eye before he sees you (best is before he turn his head) to get that $1.50 bounty, if not u get the max bounty.

    I am playing on a PC. The advice that is posted seems to be for an X Box type controller not a mouse. I did learn a few things that I can use. Thanks.
