Red Dead Redemption 2: All Guides, Cheat Codes and Tips

Red Dead Redemption 2 has finally arrived. Rockstar's new open world western game is now available on PS4 and Xbox One and presents players with a huge and deep world to explore. The main story alone will take you within 50 hours to complete, and this before engaging much of its side content – and all this will be followed by Red Dead Online in November, the online multiplayer component of the game.

To help you get the most out of the experience, we've gathered lots of guides and tips, addressing specific aspects of the game and a wider range of things that you should be aware of before starting. Rockstar has chosen not to hold your hand with many features of the game, leaving it to discover them or find them hidden in the menus. We'll also take a look at some of these examples to make sure you're aware of everything the game has to offer.

We have many other guides and tips coming up and we will continue to update the list below with all of them. While you're really waiting to get your hands on the game, be sure to take a look at our review of RDR 2.

A potentially important aspect of the new game is the tricks. Like GTA V first, RDR 2 allows you to use cheat and also has an entire menu available for the function. However, at this early stage, we do not really know what all of them are; at least some are cleverly hidden in the newspapers in the game. We will do our best to expel them and report them as soon as they are discovered – you can see what we have been able to confirm in our list of all the tricks of Red Dead 2. In the meantime, we also have a rundown on the best RDR2 tricks worth try out.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the third game in the Red Dead series, although it is closely connected to its direct predecessor. However, RDR 2 is a prequel, which takes place years before the events of the first RDR. If you have played the previous game, you will recognize the names and faces of many of its characters, including the protagonist of RDR John Marston. We will immerse ourselves in the event of playing RPG for the first time in our function, but whatever your choice, you should take a look at our Red Dead Redemption story to refresh your memory – or fill in the holes for the first time.

With this in mind, we've put together a list of key tips you should know before starting the game for the first time. We have kept the spoilers to a minimum, but you will want to be aware, for example, that secondary missions can expire if you can not reach them quickly enough.

Clothes and climates

Among the ways in which Red Dead 2 tries to immerse yourself in its world is with its climates. You will need to take temperature into account if you want to maximize your performance by wearing appropriate clothes depending on where you are in the world. We have collected all the clothes we have met so far to give you an idea of ​​what you can find.

Things that the game does not tell you

As you play and share stories with friends, you might understand that there are a number of things that the game does not tell you. There are various interesting details and curiosities that you could lose because Rockstar is not throwing them in the face, so we did our best to round off a number of these so you do not miss out on some opportunities during the course of your adventures.

How do morals and honor work?

Among the many systems that you will find in Red Dead 2 is honor. Arthur Morgan could be a criminal, no matter what your choices are, but there are grades in which he is a bad boy. This comes into play with morality and honor, for your actions will increase or diminish your honor. By pressing the D key you can see it at any time, and something as simple as greeting a passerby will allow you to create it. Aside from the way people react to you, it's worth being aware of the implications of your honor – Good Guy Arthur will get discounts in stores, which is a way to save money.

Some secondary missions may expire

If you are a completeist, the thought that the optional missions disappear is really terrible. But whatever your way of playing games like Red Dead 2, you should definitely interact with some of the optional content that involves your gang. These sequences present some of the character's best moments in the game, but if you advance enough in the story, some of these missions will go away whether you have them or not. You can find out more about how secondary missions work on our expiring PSA.

How fast travel?

Quick trips exist in RDR2, although it is not something you will do by selecting a point on your map and moving there. The means to move quickly involve the use of real means of transport, such as the stagecoaches. Provided you have the patience, you are much better off running or carrying your horse, because in this way you will encounter some of the most interesting contents of the game. But if speed is essential, check out our explanation of how fast travel works.

All the guns

As noted above, money is a premium, so you do not necessarily have to buy all the weapons you put your eyes on. You may want to plan ahead, so we have collected all the weapons we have discovered so far to give you an idea of ​​what awaits you.

Explanation of health, resistance, dead eye and carrots and horse bars

One of the many new wrinkles in Red Dead 2 is the Core system, which dictates a variety of aspects of your character. It can be a little tricky to wrap your mind, with the souls that influence the bars but the bars used before the cores, among other things. Do yourself a favor and get a good understanding of this key system by consulting our guide on how the cores work.

Fishing tips

At the start of the game, you will gain the opportunity to fish, which can be a fun mini-game with which to spend a little time.

How to find legendary animals and skins

During Chapter 2, you will meet your first legendary animal: a huge grizzly bear.

If you want to know the location of each elusive animal in the world of Red Dead 2, consult our guide to pets with legendary animals for guidance on how to find them and what to do with that legendary bear skin.

Guide to the benefits: jewelry, talismans and handcrafted components you need

Perks offers improvements to the overall capabilities of Arthur that are unlocked by obtaining talismans and costume jewelry, which are mainly made in Fences. You will need parts from Legendary Animals to make them happen. Others are rewarded by completing specific missions in special conditions. Take a look at our Perks guide which offers a detailed description of all the Talismans we have found so far, what they do and what you need to unlock them.

The best horses and where to find them

There is no singular "best horse" in the game. There are only strong breeds that are much better than the standard breeds you meet early. Speaking of the different types: the Fox Trotter Arabian, Turkmen and Missouri races stand out as the most complete and first level. Here is our best guide on horses that offers details on each one.

Hidden weapons that you may have lost

There are a number of weapons to be found in the vast world of Red Dead 2. However, some of these can not be bought from weapon shops, and can easily be lost if you do not pay attention. With this in mind, we have compiled a list of weapons that may require extra effort to find, but are among the most interesting combat tools in the game. In addition to the six custom shooters of legendary Gunslingers, there are also melee weapons that can be traced back to ancient cultures lost over time. Go and have a look at our guide on how to find these hidden weapons.

Where to sell stolen items: each fence position in Red Dead Redemption 2

Fences – the merchants, not the border markers – in Red Dead Redemption 2 are the only companies that will buy goods you've found while looting strangers and rummaging in private property, and with the rubber they are surely hard to find. Considering the size of the RDR2 map, and that there are only four fences in the whole terrain, it's likely that you're wondering where they are hiding. We have a practical reference guide to help locate black market traders who sell illicit goods.

How to start all the challenges

As you play Red Dead 2, you will begin to see notifications informing you that you have completed a challenge. Now all this sounds good and dandy, but you're probably wondering, "What are the full challenges doing? Heck, why should I even worry about completing them?" This is a fair question, and we are here to answer. Here is our guide to the challenge containing the details of each of us, as well as specific information on what you earn.
