Pipe for Dutch in Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the items you’ll need to improve the relationships with your gang mates. At some point between chapters 2 and 4, Dutch will ask you to get him a smoking pipe. Most of the gang members’ requests are for common items which can be found virtually everywhere. This one’s different, though – there is only one pipe you can pick up in the game. In this guide, we’re going to show you where to find pipe for Dutch in Red Dead Redemption 2.
How to get pipe for Dutch in RDR 2?
Since there’s only one pipe in the entire world, you’ll have to go to a specific place to get it. It’s in the western part of the map. The closest town is Strawberry. Travel there and follow the road north until you reach the river. Turn west and follow it some more. At some point, when you’re near the edge of the map, there will be a cottage on the south side of the road (near the letter W on the map). Consult the images below if you need visuals.
The cottage is called Vetter’s Echo. When you approach it, you’ll hear a bear growling somewhere nearby. If you’re anything like us, you’ll try to run inside to hide from the beast. Natural instinct to seek shelter and all that. Well, does the game have a surprise for you. The bear is actually in the cottage. There’s another entrance which might help you get the drop on the animal, if you’re feeling sneaky. On the other end of the spectrum, you can chuck several sticks of dynamite into the cottage. That said, you could also let it maul you – after you respawn, the bear will be gone.
There’s a desk with a typewriter in the shack – that’s where you’ll find the pipe. Simply grab it and bring it to Dutch next time you’re in your camp, and you’ll get a pair of new spurs as a reward. I hope you feel like that’s enough of a reward for getting torn to shreds by an angry bear, because that’s all that you’re gonna get. Thanks a bunch, Dutch.
