Red Dead Redemption: Mo Van Barr Bounty Guide

By Jamie Pert - May 27, 2010

For those of you having a hard time in getting Mo Van Barr to appear, then a possible solution has been found on the GameFAQs forums which will help you in your mission to finally get the bounty once and for all.

According to the post, you will HAVE to start a new game (GULP!). You will then have to play the game as normal by completing all available missions from Bonnie BEFORE doing any other missions.

Once you are done with Bonnie, you can then head over to Armadillo and do the mission with the Marshal. After this is completed, you will have to KILL Walton. Do not disable him, kill him then Run back and complete your mission.

Apparently, this is the only way to fix the bug regarding the Mo Van Barr Bounty, at least until a patch comes out.

Did this work for you? Do you have any other solutions? More information on this can be found on GameFAQS where a host of RDR gamers are getting stuck in to the mystery.

    I had the same problem, getting him was the last step for the outfit, and when the bounty came up and even after completing it I did not register…so now I am worried that even after patching the patch it might not work.

    I'm glad I went for the warhorse pre-order, zooming from one end of the map the other rocks! I'm sorry for all y'all deadly assassins, but surely Rockstar will patch this soon… right? oh, wait, they did and it still doesn't work:

    So now the patch needs patching. Come on Rockstar, you make such awesome games, one little patch shouldn't be too hard. Meanwhile, giddy up horsey. 😉

    Fuck you rockstar. I've restarted my game 3 times now and still no Mo Van Barr, WTF man!!! The game is great but I can't believe you would screw this up so bad

  • isaac

    Damn I thought that I just hadnt gotten to the bounty yet, and I finally had to look it up because Im in Blackwater on single player. That sucks, but whats the assassin outfit really do you for anyway, I kill just fine without taking cover or using dead eye

  • mark

    yay, got him to come out, and the kill didn't register… great fix…

    Nice quality control Rockstar…

  • Fugazy

    Worked for me, but these bugs really zuck big time

  • Wisdom Like Silence

    prolly didnt anticipate people not doing all the farmhand missions straight away.

  • Teddy

    Man, I'm not trying to be hateful…but that is not a "solution". A solution would be if they issue a patch that makes him appear, or if there is something we can do WITHOUT RESTARTING OUR GAME that will make him appear. 99% of us are fully entrenched in the game and we are hoping for a patch or a way to get to Van Baar from where we are at. We keep going back to the Armadillo Wanted Poster over and over and over again and Van Barr never shows up. It's a glitch. There's no way they meant for Van Baar to permanently disappear if you didn't look at a tiny "wanted" poster at the perfect time in the game.

    It's pretty ridiculous that a single-player game mode needs a patch to fix a bug like this. I can't believe they didn't test this out.
