The Hermit is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption 2


Hermit can be found living at Manito Glade, a homestead north of Annesburg. If the player comes close to his cottage, the Hermit will shout obscenities at them, warning the protagonist to leave, while threatening them with the Rare Shotgun. The Hermit will fire at the player if they come any closer.

The player can choose to kill the Hermit if they wish. Doing so will allow them to loot items from him and his house, but most notably, the protagonist can take his unique shotgun for themselves.



  • The first half of a treasure map can be obtained by searching the Hermit's cabin.
  • A drawing of him in Arthur's journal depicts him with a Carbine Repeater instead of the Rare Shotgun.
