Can You Save Lenny in Red Dead Redemption 2?

There’s more than a few fatalities in Red Dead Redemption 2. But is there a way of making sure Lenny gets through the game alive?

Red Dead Redemption may have skipped the platform but PC-owning cowboy fans can now play Red Dead Redemption 2. It requires a hefty chunk of hard disk space and a fairly powerful PC to play but, much to our joy, there are already mods available for the game. There’s one that lets you play as all manner of animals, though we’re still waiting for an add-on that replaces every enemy with Macho Man Randy Savage.

This guide contains spoilers for Red Dead Redemption 2.


Lenny is one of the more interesting characters in the game; he’s a tough cookie but not as grizzled or set in his ways as Arthur is.

He also dies part way through the game, meeting his end in a similar manner to Jenny, a gang member who he had a crush on. But can you save him from this fate?

Unfortunately not. Lenny is going to die in Red Dead Redemption 2, no matter what you do. It doesn’t matter whether you, as Arthur, ride around aiding the innocent or shoot strangers in the face as soon as you see them; every scripted death in the game is unpreventable.

Sorry, Lenny, it’s never going to end well for you.
