Buford Ackley, while in combat

Buford Ackley is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption.


Buford is a lawman who operates in the New Austin region, notably in MacFarlane's Ranch, Armadillo and Rathskeller Fork.


Buford can most often be found wandering around MacFarlane's Ranch. When Marston successfully completes a Nightwatch job there, Buford is the one who pays him. Burord can also be seen in Armadillo, where he often pins up the wanted posters on the train station and then continues to patrol. Same thing he does in Rathskeller Fork. However if Marston has a bounty, Buford will track the player to multiple locations in and around New Austin.
