In Red Dead Redemption 2, you can rob every coach and stagecoach you encounter while exploring the world; however, only 6 of them are unique; meaning that will allow you to earn more money than you usually receive while stealing from a random carriage.
During the said chapter, you’ll complete a story mission named Friends in Very Low Places. While playing the said mission, Trelawny introduces you to the Rhodes Station clerk, named Alden.
As you’ll find out, Alden is not satisfied with how the world progresses and more importantly, he’s not satisfied with his wage. Therefore, one of his weak points is greed, which is an opportunity for you to use your bribing skill.
Red Dead Redemption II features two such characters. First, we have Alden in Rhodes, and the second clerk you can bribe is Hector in Strawberry.
Each of them agrees to give you 3 tip-offs on the richest stagecoaches in Red Dead Redemption 2. This means that the video game features a total of 6 side-activities involving specific coaches. These are very similar to the Shop Robberies and Home Robberies we already presented as part of our RDR2 Wiki.
Below, we discuss their locations and how you should properly rob them in order to make the most from each of them.
1 – North Scarlett Meadows Coach Robbery Tip
The first tip-off you receive from Alden is for a wagon full of antiques. Once you talk to Alden at Rhodes Station, check the North Scarlett Meadows Coach Tip in your inventory.
Tip Description: “Head North up the road past face rock. Wagon full of antiques coming from the North East headed for a buyer in Rhodes should only be a couple of guards. Deliver to Seamus at Emerald Ranch. Careful not to damage the wagon or the cargo.”
After you read the document, head to the location marked on our map and wait for the stagecoach to arrive at the marked location.
When the stagecoach finally appears, you have two options. You can mislead the coach driver, or you can opt to rob the coach on sight, by opening fire on all 4 guards.
If you opt for the first strategy, wait for one of the guards to get down and inspect the wheel; then step away from the coach, draw your weapon and kill all 4 guards in a single Dead Eye use.
Next, get in the stagecoach and drive to Seamus at the Emerald Ranch Fence. Drive slowly and pay attention especially when you take turns because the statues you carry can fall from the wagon; greatly reducing the payout. When the stagecoach is inside Seamus’ barn you’ll receive your payment.
2 – South Scarlett Meadows Coach Robbery Tip
The second time you visit Alden, you’ll receive a new tip-off which unlocks the South Scarlett Meadows Stagecoach Robbery.
Talk to Alden in Rhodes, then inspect the document you receive.
Tip Description: “Road southwest at Bolger Glade. Look for carriage coming from the South. The passenger is a wealthy merchant, probably keep his cash hidden so might need some persuasion.”
After you arrive at the second location marked on our map, wait for the stage-coach to arrive and shoot the driver immediately.
The passenger inside will try to escape, so run after him and when close enough press O/B to tackle him. In order to find where the money is, hit him at least once.
The passenger will tell you that the lockbox is located under the stagecoach. Release the poor fellow, then return to the stagecoach and inspect it to retrieve the hidden lock-box.
Take the money inside to complete the side activity and if you wish to make an additional $25, drive the carriage to Seamus at the Fence in Emerald Ranch.
3 – Coach Convoy Robbery Tip
Alden’s final tip-off is about a coach convoy which will travel just north of Rhodes as you can see on our map.
Tip Description: “Railway bridge northeast of Hill Haven Ranch. A convoy of coaches coming from the North. Expect good money but loads of guards. Be real careful.”
The coach convoy is heavily guarded, so it’s wise to maintain a safe distance from it. You can try standing on the bridge nearby and snipe both stagecoach drivers, followed by the mounted guards.
Obviously, you can also try other ways to approach the convoy, depending on your playstyle; but the one we have used works quite well as long as you activate Arthur’s Dead Eye skill.
To complete the side activity, once you clear the area; rob both coaches. You should see that at the back of each coach is a locked box. Break the locks and take the money.
If you wish to earn some extra funds, take one of the stagecoaches to Seamus.
Once you complete all three Red Dead Redemption 2 Stagecoach Robberies from Alden, travel to the Post Office in Strawberry to meet Hector. Just like Alden, he’ll give you 3 tip-offs.
4 – Fort Riggs Stagecoach Robbery Tip
The first tip-off you receive from Hector sends you to the border with Blackwater, close to Fort Riggs.
Tip Description: “River road near Fort Riggs. Coach coming from Blackwater heading for Riggs Station. Should be carrying cash in the strongbox at the back. Expect a couple of guards.”
The location marked on our map offers the perfect sniping position. Wait for the stagecoach while standing on the top of the mountain, overseeing the river.
When the coach arrives, using a scoped rifle take both drivers out. Now, pick the guards one by one, and only descend the mountain after you clear the area.
Break the lock on the box at the back of the coach to retrieve $110 and if you feel ready for a long drive, take the coach to Seamus.
5 – Appleseed Timber Stagecoach Robbery Tip
The second Red Dead Redemption 2 Coach Robbery tip you receive from Hector leads to Appleseed Timber, north-east of Strawberry.
Tip Description: “Railway bridge north of Appleseed Timber Co. Coach coming west headed for Appleseed carrying wages, cash should be in the back. Expect a couple of guards.”
This coach robbery is quite accessible, leaving room for improvisation. You can opt to call out the driver, then take him and the guards by surprise and kill them on sight.
Alternatively, if you’re not interested in delivering the coach to Seamus, you can place some dynamite on the road and shoot it when the coach is nearby. The fire will destroy the coach but not the money.
Simply opening fire on all guards is also a viable option. After you secure the coach, open the box at the back and take the money inside.
6 – Owanjila Stagecoach Robbery Tip
The third and last time you talk to Hector at Strawberry Post Office, you’ll receive a tip-off about an armored banking coach heading to Owanjila.
Tip Description: ” Head out west past Wanjila. Banking coach coming from the North. Armored with heavy security. Cash locked inside. Act carefully.”
Before approaching this Stagecoach Robbery in RDR2, you will need a dynamite stick. The armored coach will not stop even if you call out the driver; therefore, the only approach is to find a good cover from which you can take out all 4 guards.
When close enough, kill the drivers first, then the guards using Arthur’s Dead Eye skill.
After you stop the coach and clear the area, throw a stick of dynamite at it to blow it up, then take the money inside.
