Arturo Bullard is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption 2.



Arturo Bullard is a pilot, who sometime before the year 1899 came in possession of and began operating a European hot air balloon.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Sadie Adler hires Bullard for flying lessons for Arthur Morgan, in order to help them find John Marston, who has been sent to Sisika Penitentiary, which is on an island near Saint Denis. Once Arthur and Sadie arrive, Bullard says that flying messes with women's "vapors" and that Sadie will have to stay behind as a result. Bullard teaches Arthur how to use the hot air balloon and chats with him.

As Arthur guides the balloon to the island, Bullard asks why is he going so close to a restricted area, to which Arthur tells him that he is looking for his friend. Bullard takes over the controls and Arthur uses some binoculars to look for John. He soon finds someone who must be John, but some of the guards spot the balloon and attempt to shoot it down but are unsuccessful, and the pair fly away unscathed.

They fly the balloon to Annesburg, where Bullard and Arthur notice that Sadie is being chased by some O'Driscolls. Arthur tells Bullard to fly them in closer and takes out a rifle. Bullard is excited by the action, although he is shot during the chase, before being shot again immediately afterwards, killing him and causing him to fall out of the balloon. Arthur takes over the controls and manages to pick up Sadie, but crashes shortly afterwards. The two of them then kill the last of the O'Driscolls, and Arthur berates Sadie for her recklessness and for getting Bullard killed.
