Game Red Dead Redemption
Location Armadillo
Price $50

The Armadillo Safehouse is a purchasable apartment on the second floor of the Armadillo Saloon. In addition to saving the game, the player may change outfits at this Safehouse.


This is the first property available to the player after leaving MacFarlane's Ranch, and is a great jumping off point for the rest of New Austin. Found above the saloon in Armadillo, it is central to most of the locations in the main storyline mission leading up to the Fort Mercer battle and therefore extremely useful. At only fifty dollars it is hard to pass up. It is a necessary component to achieve 100% Completion. It is the cheapest vacant house that can be bought in game.


It is a small apartment but larger than your previous one at MacFarlane's Ranch. It features a chest with ammo inside as well as an armoire with a small amount of money or other random objects. There is a door that leads into the casino/bar area and another leading out onto a balcony outside.


  • If the player looks on the back of the banister at the safehouse property, it reads "DONT YOU LOOK FINE AND DANDY", which is a cheat code to unlock the Elegant Suit Outfit.
  • There is a second bed in the safehouse although it is not usable by the player.
  • A quicker way to get into the safehouse is to go to the balcony with the railing missing outside the saloon. the player can jump up and grab the ledge from the walkway, but make sure to stand on the very edge of the walkway directly beneath the ledge to make sure this works. This can also be used as a quick way down from the safehouse, and the player will lose no health unless they press the jump action button.
  • It is possible to ride the player's hitched horse outside the Saloon by using the backdoor to the balcony and jumping right onto their horse.
