Benedict Point is a train station in Red Dead Redemption and Red Dead Redemption 2 in the Gaptooth Ridge region of the New Austin territory.

It is a small, minor settlement and is primarily a train station for the Southwestern Railroad Company.

Background

Red Dead Redemption

At this location, the Irish mission "Man is Born Unto Trouble" begins, a large portion of the Seth Briars mission "Exhuming and Other Fine Hobbies" takes place, and the Nigel West Dickens mission "Liars, Cheats and Other Proud Americans" ends.

The Stranger side-mission "Funny Man" begins here. Also, the player can find Silas Spatchcock, one of the subjects of the Stranger side-mission "Lights, Camera, Action", in this location.

Most of the time, Benedict Point is quiet and the residents go about their business. The settlement has a sheriff and a horse stable with small homes around the main station. From here, the trains arrive from Armadillo to the northwest and continues south crossing the San Luis River into Mexico. In a small area surrounded by a wooden fence behind the train station are three wooden crosses. Sometimes, Treasure Hunters gang members will ride on the main road beside the train station, dragging a civilian behind them, and firing their guns.

Outlaws to the End

It is a featured location in the Outlaws to the End Co-op mission "The Escape".

Undead Nightmare

During the Undead Nightmare, a train guarded by the U.S. Military is stationed here and Marston must find a way to board it and ride it into Mexico as part of the mission "American Imperialism".

In the mission "A Cure for Most of What Ails You", Marston meets Nigel West Dickens here and receives the Blunderbuss.

This is also the location of Willis Lassiter, the sixth missing person to be rescued in the Fort Mercer segment of the Missing Persons Side-missions.
