Red Dead Redemption
Seth Briars is found here robbing graves during the mission "Exhuming and Other Fine Hobbies" and Seth Briars mission "A Gentle Drive with Friends" begins here. The player can find Alma Horlick in this location to begin the Stranger side-mission "Let No Man Put Asunder".
The place is also inhabited by a few other unusual people that seem to take residence outside the dilapidated chapel, a few of them being Coke Buckley and Morris Snead: they can be seen digging up graves, sitting by campfires or mourning. It is possible that people live in the chapel, because they can be seen sleeping in the back room.
The area surrounding the chapel is sparse and empty; with a few demolished homes dotting the landscape.
Coot's Chapel is a small, isolated place of Christian worship. The chapel is run down, the windows old and cracked, the walls eroded, the seats worn out.
The chapel also maintains a graveyard. Among the graves with legible inscriptions lie most of the MacFarlane Brothers, Priscilla Johnson (Marshal Leigh Johnson's Wife) and many other people. The graveyard is quiet and the surrounding stone walls are corroded. The iron fencing is rusted. A lifeless tree sits in the center of the yard with scattered debris found lying around.
The area surrounding the chapel has many demolished houses where all but the brick foundations have been destroyed.
A scrap of the Deadly Assassin Outfit can be found inside a chest in the chapel for those who purchased the Special Edition version of the game or downloaded the Deadly Assassin Outfit DLC. However, opening this chest can count as a theft and witnesses may run off to tell the authorities, though Coot's Chapel is somewhat distant from the nearest sheriff.
Coot's Chapel is the site of the Undead Overrun level titled "High Brains Drifter." No other multiplayer game modes take place here.
- One gravestone in the chapel cemetery is dedicated to a cowboy with no name who died towards the end of the nineteenth century. This could be a tribute to the character played by Clint Eastwood in the 'spaghetti westerns', however the Man With No Name is seen in A Few Dollars More is called Manco which is the only reference we see which is his name. The grave is located just behind the one that Seth is digging up when Marston first meets him.
- The grave of Josephine Byrd can be opened with a fire bottle. This is the same grave that is excavated by Seth during the mission "Exhuming and Other Fine Hobbies". This is either an 'Easter Egg' or just a glitch.
- "Coot's Chapel" is possibly a nickname given to the area after it had been abandoned. It may be a reference to the crazy and undesirable people who hang around the area, as the word Coot means 'old' in the western civilization.
- If the player opens the chest inside the church, the residents will go and alert the sheriff.
- An NPC can sometimes be seen angrily pointing and shouting at the large cross above the altar and later sitting on a pew, crying.
- NPCs occasionally can sometimes be seen crying at graves at the chapel.
- A NPC can also be seen digging graves and sometimes crying by it.
- The graves of all five of Bonnie's deceased brothers can be found here.
