Joe is a supporting character and a minor antagonist featured in Red Dead Redemption 2 and a minor character in Red Dead Online.



Joe was an associate of Micah Bell alongside Cleet.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Joe is recruited by Micah to aid the Van der Linde gang in their robbery of a US Army train in 1899. After Micah betrays the gang and leaves, Joe and Cleet join Micah in creating his own gang up in the mountains of Ambarino.

Years later in 1907, John Marston, Sadie Adler and Charles Smith learn that Micah is still alive and journey to kill him as revenge for his betrayal that ultimately led to the fall of the Van Der Linde Gang and the death of Arthur Morgan.

Joe, along with two other gang members, encounter John as he makes his way up the mountain. After a brief confrontation, John shoots and kills Joe and his allies, continuing on his trek toward Micah.

Mission appearances


  • Joe has a tattoo on his chest that reads "tout me fait rire", a French phrase which translates to "Everything makes me laugh."
  • Joe never speaks during a cutscene in the single player campaign; he shares this distinction with Cleet, although unlike him, Joe only has a few lines, when John confronts him in American Venom. Both can also be interacted with around camp, between the missions My Last Boy and Our Best Selves, although they will only either sit at the table near Dutch's tent or lay on the nearby bedrolls. During these interactions, Arthur notes that he doesn't talk too much.
    • However, he does speak during his stranger activity in Red Dead Online. This interaction sees him speaking much more, often repeating himself.
