The Best Way To Get Rid Of Bounties In Red Dead Redemption 2

The bounties in Red Dead Redemption 2 can be a nuisance. You commit a few crimes, shoot a bystander or two, and all of the sudden, the law is giving you a hard time. What gives? Fortunately, you can get rid of bounties in Red Dead 2 pretty easily.


You might be familiar with the real-life way you mail a letter or ship a package at the post office. You walk up to the teller at the desk, do your business, and roll on out of there. Believe it or not, removing a bounty in Red Dead 2 works in the exact same way. All you have to do is find a post office, inform the clerk you'd like to pay off a bounty, and then hand over some cash.

Seriously. Those seven murders you committed in Strawberry? They're wiped away by surrendering some dough. Those folks you held up in Saint Denis? Justice is apparently served if you use some of their money to pay off your bounty at the post office.

Of course, that might not be an option. You could be having money problems, in which case, you might feel the only thing you can do is murder and steal. But be sure to check your character's inventory to see if you've managed to pick anything expensive up off of some bad guys. Chances are, if you've been looting corpses — as well as searching any abandoned homes you might find — there are some valuables you can trade in at a fence.


Or you can choose not to live a life of crime. Who needs the story of Red Dead Redemption 2 when you can find a nice town to stay in, explore the world, and not have to worry about breaking the law?

On second thought, that sounds boring. Shoot some O'Driscolls, steal their stuff, and trade it for money. Then pay off your bounties.
