Red Dead Redemption 2 Vampire guide: How to find the vampire in Saint Denis

There's an elusive vampire feasting on folk in Saint Denis, and here's how to find them in RDR2.

Halloween might have long passed (or be on it's way, depending on how you look at it), but the spirit of Bela Lugosi and Nosferatu lives on in the gloomy backstreets of Saint Denis. Red Dead Redemption 2 is no stranger to bizarre mysteries and Easter eggs, such as the werewolf and UFO, but did you know that there's a vampire for you to encounter, too?

If a rendezvous with a vampure sounds good to you, here's where to make like Van Helsing and find the vampire in Red Dead Redemption 2.


How to find the vampire in Red Dead Redemption 2

To track down the vampire in Red Dead Redemption 2, you first have to find graffiti in five locations around Saint Denis and interact with each individual piece of graffiti so that Arthur makes a note of it in his journal.

It seems like the bloodsucking beast has a taste for delinquency, as well as hemoglobin, because the scrawlings are scattered all around the city for the most eagle-eyed of players to discover.

Graffiti 1 - near the Saloon

The first vampire graffiti location is across the road from the large saloon in the northeast of the city. Across from the saloon will be another building; this piece of graffiti is on the northwest corner of the building.

Graffiti 2 - near the Trapper

After that, you'll find the next piece of the graffiti just to the southwest of the Trapper in Saint Denis, where there's an archway that says 'Saint Denis Market Open Daily'. To the right of that archway, there's a metal gate - just to your left as you walk through it, you'll see the graffiti carved into the wall.

Graffiti 3 - near the Gunsmith

Next, there's another piece of graffiti around the back of the Gunsmith in the city centre (see screenshot). To get here, you'll have to go all the way around the back and through the iron gates into the alleyways.

Graffiti 4 - in a back alley also near the Gunsmith

To the south of the Gunsmith, there's another hard to find piece of graffiti in a back alley (see screenshot).

Travel south of the road that houses the gunsmith and you'll see an archway on your right that says 'Liu Hsiang Electric Work'. Through the arch, turn left underneath the stairs, down towards the more open courtyard and the graffiti is carved into the brick wall on your right.

Graffiti 5 - behind the General Store

Finally, the last graffiti location is around the back of the general store on the eastern side of town. Head over to the building and go around to the eastern wall which faces the river - what you're looking for is towards the southern end of the wall.

By reading all of the mysterious writing on these walls, you will trigger a black 'X' on your map labelled 'corpse', just to the northwest of the general store, in a dark alleyway. So, what now?

How to fight the vampire in Red Dead Redemption 2

As you'd expect, this encounter only works in the dead of night, so head to the 'X' around midnight and you'll run into the vampire you've been trailing this whole time.

The result of your brush with the undead will net you a unique weapon - their dagger - if you manage to kill them before they kill you.

If the vampire kills you - which he can do in one hit - you will not be able to reload your game. Instead, you'll wake up with a new journal entry about your encounter, and your wallet feeling a little lighter...
