Bert Venter in a fistfight

Bert Venter is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption.


Judging by his surname, and the fact that he is frequently found there, he is likely the owner of Venter's Place, one of the many ranches in New Austin.


Bert plays a minor role in the mission "You Shall Not Give False Testimony, Except for Profit", in which he is among the crowd that gathers around Nigel West Dickens. Eventually, he is convinced and purchases some of West Dickens' miracle tonic.

Bert can commonly be found in and around Venter's Place.


So, this is it? It figures.

  • His clothes are very similiar to those of Ira Shelton.
  • May be a reference to Bern Venters, a character in "Riders of the Purple Sage" by Zane Grey.
