Where to Find Dynamite in Red Dead Redemption 2?

To find Dynamite in Red Dead Redemption 2, the easiest way is to simply purchase it. You will be able to get it in the overworld if you go looking, and even some missions might grant you some. However, just buying yourself some dynamite is always the least of headaches. Now, the only problem there is that general stores and other reputable establishments don’t really make a habit of keeping high-end explosives in their inventory. So you’re going to need somebody who is more than willing to sell and buy items that aren’t strictly kosher.

Enter fences. If you don’t know, fences are the best friends of bandits in RDR2. They will buy or sell nearly anything you have to offer, no matter how ill-gotten. This includes jewelry and gold bars, masks, lock breakers, and so on. And, they will absolutely sell you dynamite. It’ll cost you a single dollar per stick of dynamite. You can carry up to eight sticks of dynamite in your inventory at any given time. We’ve covered where to find fences in our Red Dead Redemption 2 Fence Vendor Locations, so head over there for more detailed instructions. Long story short: one is in Saint Denis, one in Emerald Ranch, one in Van Horn Trading Post, and one just north of Rhodes.

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 have the same problem and it’s so annoying because one of the challenges requires dynamite and I can’t get any because the fence says it’s out of stock and I have none. Let me know if you find a solution.
