We need guns for what's coming. Cleet and Joe know how to fight... it's lucky I bumped into 'em.
~ Micah introducing Cleet and Joe.

Cleet and Joe are supporting antagonists in the 2018 video-game Red Dead Redemption II. They are associates of Micah Bell who join the Van der Linde gang in Beaver Hollow.


Cleet and Joe became affiliated with Micah Bell for an unknown period of time. In 1899, Micah brought Cleet and Joe into Dutch van der Linde's gang after setting up camp near Annesburg, New Hanover. During Arthur Morgan and John Marston's confrontation with Micah, Cleet and Joe stood by Micah's side along with Dutch, Bill Williamson and Javier Escuella before escaping from a Pinkerton raid.

Eight years later, Cleet and Joe joined Micah's gang in Ambarino, but Cleet left after Micah had tried to murder a child. John, Sadie Adler, and Charles Smith find Cleet in Strawberry, and after interrogating him, Cleet tells the group where Micah and Joe were hiding before being killed by either John or Sadie. As John continued up Mount Hagen, he came face to face with Joe and some henchmen before gunning them all down.


While they do not speak much, it can be told that Cleet and Joe are both rough and ready outlaws who have no qualm in robbing or killing others. While they are/were associates of Micah Bell, they didn't seem too openly interactive with him and were likely nervous of his wild and psychotic personality. Furthermore (and similar to Micah), they also seemed to give off a creepy vibe.

Cleet seemed to have more of a conscience however, as he left Micah's gang after the latter killed a whole family, and almost killed a little girl who only escaped due to Cleet trying to stop him. Still, he does value his own life, as he reveals Micah's location and begs for John and Sadie to spare him; which they do not.

It is likely that Joe was more loyal towards Micah (although this loyalty might very well have been out of fear), as he stayed with his gang until his death. In Red Dead Online, Joe appears to be paranoid and threatens the Online Protagonist with his shotgun until he realized that he/she was there looking for work and willing to help him.


  • Cleet shares his name with the young boy that stole Arthur Morgan's bag in Saint Denis.
