The Murfree Brood are an antagonistic faction from Red Dead Redemption II. They are a family of extremely territorial and homicidal hillbillies who also work as a gang, terrorizing any who come across their area of land.



The Murfree family immigrated to the United States in the 1700s and moved to Roanoke Ridge where they began to reside. After the industrialisation of the surrounding area, they began to seek seclusion in Beaver Hollow. Bent on keeping their territory to themselves, The Murfree Brood then descended into barbaric savagery and became notorious for their utter inhumane habits of robbing, kidnapping, torturing, murdering, dismembering and eating locals and travellers for what could have only been their own twisted sadism and pleasure. The brood are more than likely inbred, which would explain some of their malformed appearances and signs of utter madness.

Red Dead Redemption II

After the attack launched by the Pinkertons, Arthur and Charles choose to seek a new camp in Beaver Hollow. On their way there, Charles claims that the Murfree Brood are animals and that everyone is terrified of them, yet also states that it would be a good hiding spot for them. After dismounting and dispatching two of the brood, Arthur and Charles move into Beaver Hollow, where the two can either choose to sneak in and ambush them or flush them out with dynamite. Arthur and Charles soon advance into the caves and find a young girl called Meredith locked in a cage, Arthur rescues her and rides her back to her home in Annesburg.

From there on, the camp use Beaver Hollow as their base and hiding spot from the Pinkertons. However, it should be noted that there are still many Murfree Brood left remaining around Roanoke Ridge, and did not take too kindly to having their home taken from them. Whilst there, Arthur can encounter several ambushes from the brood. A man can also be found having hung himself in order to spare him from the brood's torture, this hanging man is used by them to lure Arthur into another ambush.

After the camp's downfall, the Murfree Brood take back Beaver Hollow as their own.


The Murfree Brood have guns and ambush abilities but are also known to have some degree of strange durability and strength, as such they are more resilient to damage and tougher opponents than usual. They are also sometimes able to utilize surprising strategy, despite their apparent bestial nature, for example they can sometimes try and kill people by using flaming carts or other traps.
