Alternatively, you can acquire it at the Six Point Cabin before clearing the “Paying a Social Call” mission.
16 – Double-Barreled Shotgun
As the name suggests, this weapon is a double burst shotgun that has the capability of firing two quick shells in succession. It’s extremely deadly in close range but loses its strength in long-range.
Having said that, you need to complete the “Paying a Social Call” mission before being able to purchase this menace of a weapon. Once completed, the weapon will be available from every gunsmith in the vicinity.
17 – Throwing Knife
As the name suggests, this knife is generally used as a one-hit kill. While it’s generally used for silent assassination, its uses can range between a plethora of lethal and non-lethal attacks.
With that said, the Throwing Knife can be obtained during “Paying a Social Call” and can be bought from a Trapper or a Fence once you’re done with the mission. Consequently, you could also head to the Six Point Cabin or at Ewing Basin to get your hands on it before the mission.
18 – Pump-Action Shotgun
Similar in nature to the Double Barrel Shotgun, the Pump-Action Shotgun excels at dealing with a limited number of enemies in a constricted area.

19 – Rolling Block Rifle
The Rolling Block Rifle is an item specifically designed for taking down large beasts. The rifle’s impact and accuracy are not to be underestimated no matter the situation. Since it is a single-shot weapon, it’s generally not recommended against a large number of enemies.

20 – Double-Action Revolver
This is often considered the most iconic weapon of the game due to its frequent mention in a plethora of movies. Its quick-firing action makes it extremely good for mounted combat.
Moreover, it can be purchased from the gunsmiths once Chapter 3 starts and you complete the “A Strange Kindness” mission.
21 – Lancaster Repeater
Being one of the most balanced guns in the game, the Lancaster repeater is notoriously known for its fast lever-action system. Unfortunately, the weapon suffers from the low damage issue.
This rifle is almost always available from the gunsmiths in the game. However, it can also be acquired for free during An American Pastoral Scene and in Rhodes inside the weapon case of a gunsmith.
22 – Rare Shotgun
As the name suggests, the Rare Shotgun is an uncommon version of the Double-Barreled Shotgun. While its usage is generally the same, you can still consider it as a premium version of the mentioned weapon.

You can get this weapon by looting a sniper in the “Magicians For Sport” mission in chapter 3.
2 – The Fire Bottle
Being a non-customizable throwable, the Fire Bottle possesses extreme power and while the accuracy is extremely low, it’s generally the best way of fighting against multiple enemies.
This bottle can be obtained from any of the Fences once you’re done with “The Fine Joys of Tobacco”. Consequently, you can get it for free by looting enemies.
3 – Bolt Action Rifle
Being the go-to for long-range combat, the Bolt Rifle is often picked for its ability to be usable in any and every situation. While it doesn’t have the fastest firing rate, you’d be still left shell-shocked due to its bullet velocity.

Chapter 4: Weapons
This list contains all the weapons related and released in the fourth chapter of Red Dead Redemption 2:

At the backside of the house, you will find a ladder leading to the basement. Loot the box on the table in order to get the shotgun.
2 – Semi-Automatic Pistol
Pistols are generally hard to use due to their limited fire rate. Thankfully, the Semi-Automatic Pistol serves as the perfect counter to that conundrum due to its fast firing rate and reload capacity.
It is readily available on the outskirts of Valentine and Saint Denis. Once you complete The Joys of Civilization, head to the gunsmiths in the mentioned areas to purchase this weapon.
3 – Algernon’s Revolver
The Algernon’s Revolver is a Double-Action weapon featuring a shortened barrel that can output a very high rate of fire. However, it’s considered more of a collector’s item than an actual weapon due to the antique engravings and the iconic pearl grip.
This revolver is given out as a reward for completing Duchesses and other Animals. Unfortunately, there’s no other way of obtaining it. Therefore, you best keep it safe unless you’re roaring for a rerun.
4 – Calloway’s Revolver
Similar to Algernon’s Revolver, this weapon is another collector’s item that possesses engravings on the barrel side. While everything about the weapon is moderate, it is still good enough to act as your main pistol for most of the game.
There are two basic ways of obtaining this weapon. You can either loot it from Jim Calloway’s corpse in The Noblest of Men, and a Woman, or you can simply make him flee until he draws his gun. In this case, simply tackle him to get the weapon.
Chapter 5: Weapons
This list contains the weapons that were released in the fifth chapter of Red Dead Redemption 2:
1 – Hatchet

2 – Machete
The Machete is a sharp broad blade that can be used for incapacitating enemies as cleanly as possible. While its original purpose was to harvest sugarcanes, nothing beats swinging it to your heart’s content at the incoming enemies in RDR2.
The machete is unlocked once the Fleeing Joy has been completed, and is available for purchase from all fences.
3 – Cleaver
Cleaver is yet another weapon that was introduced in Chapter 5 for the sake of diversity. It’s essentially just a shorter yet wider axe that’s generally used to chop through thick meat.
Having said that, it can also be obtained from fences after the “Fleeting Joy” mission has been cleared.
4 – Mauser Pistol
The Mauser Pistol pays homage to the German weapon Mühlberg Mauser. Its rapid fire rate paired with its spacious ammo capacity makes it great for drawn-out battles.
It can be purchased from the Gunsmith in Saint Denis and Valentine after you’ve completed the “That’s Murfee Country” mission. Alternatively, you can also pick it up in the “Revenge is a Dish Best Eaten” mission when Angelo Bronte throws the gun at John Marston.
Chapter 6: Weapons
This list pertains to the weapons available in the final chapter of Red Dead Redemption 2:
1 – Carcano Rifle

2 – Litchfield Repeater
The Litchfield Repeater is a weapon that excels at medium to close-range combat. Since its accuracy often renders it unusable, you won’t find many cowboys carrying this around.
It can be obtained from the gunsmiths after clearing the “Goodbye, Dear Friend” mission. However, you can also get it for free during the “Mrs. Sadia Adler, Widow 11” mission.
3 – Repeating Shotgun
The repeating Shotgun is essentially an upgraded version of the Barrelled Shotgun that allows you to fire shells one after another. While it’s generally meant to be used for close quarters, you can also flex it for the lower-mid range.
You can purchase this Shotgun from any Gunsmith, given that you’ve already completed the “Visiting Hours” mission.
4 – Ornate Dagger
While there’s no shortage of melee weapons in RDR2, the Ornate Dagger still proves to be a healthy welcome because of its small yet lethal attack range.
This is more of a collector’s item that can be obtained from the alleyways of Saint Denis. A strange-looking pale man will hand this weapon to you after the 5 Mysterious Writings have been completed.
Epilogue 1 & Epilogue 2: Weapons
