The Most Tragic Deaths in Red Dead Redemption Series

21 September 2023

Red Dead Redemption is not a cheerful franchise, and there are far more tragic deaths in it than in all parts of GTA. The series about hardened criminals trying to atone for their sins abounds with dramatic moments that have touched many players. In this regard, Game Rant has compiled a list of the most emotional deaths.

The list includes 13 names from Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Redemption 2. The first two places were predictably taken by the main characters – John Marston and Arthur Morgan. Most of the rating is occupied by the Van der Linde gang, although there is also a place for Pinkerton agency employees.

13. Thomas Downes:

One of the key characters in Red Dead Redemption 2. A regular farmer who took out a loan from the Van der Linde gang and failed to repay it on time. Later died of tuberculosis.

12. Javier Escuella:

Escuella was a member of the Van der Linde gang and one of the antagonists of the first part. Javier was close with Arthur, but ultimately chose Dutch's side.

11. Andrew Milton:

A secondary antagonist in Red Dead Redemption 2. Milton was hunting the Van der Linde gang and almost caught the criminals, but was killed by Abigail.

10. Sean MacGuire:

Sean is one of the most amusing members of the Van der Linde gang. He has a strong Irish accent. He joined the gang after trying to rob Dutch.

9. Edgar Ross:

Edgar Ross is the main antagonist of both games. He participated in the hunt for the main characters and killed John Marston at the end of the first part. He was later killed by Jack Marston, John's son.

8. Hosea Matthews:

One of the founders of the Van der Linde gang. He dreamed of becoming a comedian in his youth, but ended up becoming a robber. He was killed by Andrew Milton during a bank robbery.

7. Lenny Summers:

Another hero of a tragic fate. Lenny's father was a former slave, but managed to teach the hero to read and write. Lenny committed his first murder at the age of 15, after which he had to hide and join Dutch.

6. Kieran Duffy:

An orphan with Irish roots and a former member of the O'Driscoll gang. Although Kieran was loyal to Dutch, many gang members considered him a traitor.

5. Molly O'Shea:

Molly is the person who suffered the most from Dutch's actions. At the beginning of the game, Dutch and Molly were lovers, but over time their relationship got worse and worse. She was killed in the camp by Susan Grimshaw.

4. Uncle:

One of the kindest characters in the entire series. After the gang disbanded, Uncle left with John Marston and helped him rebuild the farm. Alas, many years later he is killed by Bureau agents.

3. Dutch van der Linde:

Dutch van der Linde appeared in both Red Dead Redemption games. In the original game, he didn't play a significant role, but in the second part, Dutch became one of the most tragic figures.

2. Arthur Morgan:

Arthur Morgan is the central character in the second part. At the beginning of the game, Arthur begins to doubt Dutch's actions and decides to embark on a path of redemption. Later, he is diagnosed with tuberculosis, which slowly kills the main character.

1. John Marston:

The character with the most tragic fate. Although John said goodbye to his life of crime, the past still catches up with him in the form of Edgar Ross. Many players did not expect such an outcome – hence the well-deserved first place.
