Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Hosea Matthews introduces Seamus to Arthur as a new prospective business partner. Seamus states that he does not like working with amateurs. Hosea suggests a chance to prove to Seamus that the pair are skilled, and not amateurs. He tells Hosea that he will only do business with the gang if they carry out a job for him; stealing a stagecoach purchased by his cousin-in-law.

He also makes an appearance in a stagecoach robbery, which was a tip provided by Alden Carruthers. After stealing a stagecoach, the player must take it to Seamus for payment.

Later on, he can briefly be seen while entering Emerald Ranch at the beginning of "He's British, of Course IV".

Mission Appearances

  • He can be encountered near his fence before the mission "The Spines of America" and can be interacted with.

  • In Red Dead Online, Seamus will not accept any of the player's stolen coaches.
  • If the player brings Seamus a vehicle damaged by gunfire he will comment "There a war on I don't know about?"

  • Any damage caused to the vehicles will affect the final payout once the vehicle is delivered to Seamus.
