Red Dead Redemption 2 Step by Step Guide to the 2 Witch Locations: Hermit Witch Has an Important Reward

Rockstar Games has made such an expansive and content-filled world in Red Dead Redemption 2, that there’s no shortage of hidden quests and items in open-world action game. While most of the side quests are grounded in reality, there are some missions that touch on the supernatural as well.

Listed below are the step by step guide on the Red Dead 2 witch locations. By our count, there are two known locations for the witches in Red Dead Redemption 2, and one of them has a unique reward that you won’t want to miss.

Red Dead 2 Witch Location #1

Possibly the most known witch location in the game so far, the witch’s cauldron can be found in Ambarino. Easiest way to mark it is go to the “N” in Ambarino in your map, and it’s right above that.

Zoomed in shot of the map:

Once you see the area, you’ll know you’ve found the right place as you’ll see a witch’s cauldron brewing something. Loot the area for items (salted offal, and other stuff), and once you’re done, go check out the cauldron. You can take a drink from it, and once you do, you’ll pass out and wake up a short distance away from the witch’s cauldron location. Aside from passing out, it’s not known what the effects of this drink are, or if there’s even an effect associated with it (aside from making you black out).

Going to the place at night will have the place lighted up with a lot of candles, which means it’s not an abandoned area. There’s also a raven sitting there that you can choose to shoot.

Now that this “easy part is out of the way, let’s dive in to the Red Dead 2 witch location #2!

Red Dead 2 Witch Location #2

It’s just left of Grizzlies West near the edge of the map.

Here’s a zoomed in look, with a waypoint marking the exact location:

Once you’re there, you’ll come across a hag that will shout at you to leave her place. She’ll have signs saying “beware of dogs” and if you don’t leave ASAP, she’ll sic her dogs at you. Easy way to get rids of the dogs is to kill ’em (sorry!), and once you do, the witch herself will hunt you down with a shotgun! Yep, no broom or magic wands for this hag! Take care of her in whatever way you wish.

Once you’ve knocked her out or killed her, you can then examine the area, which will prompt Arthur to write in his journal about meeting a witch!

You should go inside her shack and loot the area. Don’t forget to pick up the “torn map” inside her bedside table!

As an added bonus, your map will also show the witch and her dogs as part of the official map!

Got all that? Good. Once we know what the mysterious drink from the cauldron does, we’ll be sure to let you know.
