Money talks in the world of Red Dead Redemption 2 and players will need a steady stream to keep their gear upgraded, buy supplies and upgrade camp.

The open world of Red Dead Redemption 2 can be quite confusing and tough if you’re a bit short on cash. 


While it’s possible to rob everyone in sight to make tons of money, that could lead to mounting bounties that will eventually become quite the headache. 

For players who want to come across money in a legal manner, here are a few of the best ways to rack up money in no time. 



There are plenty of opportunities for enterprising card sharks and gamblers to grab some coin in one of the many minigames, such as poker or dominoes, spread throughout the map. Players can practice in camp before facing off for real money, too.



Whether you dream of becoming the next big used-horse salesman or you find a plethora of valuable items such as pocket watches, shops are more than willing to pay for these items as well as legendary animal pelts and any fish you catch.

Doing side quests while you collect these resources can fetch a little extra cash as well.

What would the Old West be without a little bounty hunting? Wanted posters can be found hanging at the sheriff’s office and will automatically update a player’s map with where they can go to find the individual on the poster.


Some bounties don’t care whether the target is brought back dead or alive, but some will have to be captured and brought back alive to receive payment. Bounties do provide an average of $25 each, so they’re worth a little extra trouble.

Gold Bars

This wouldn’t be a list on how to make money in the Old West without mentioning gold bars. They can usually be found at the end of a treasure map or by completing some quest lines.

Each gold bar is worth $500, plenty of cash to quickly upgrade your camp and outfit yourself with the latest Wild West tech.


Red Ded Redemption cosplayers become real-life Arthur & Sadie Adler

Two incredible gaming cosplayers came together to create their own versions of Red Dead Redemption’s Arthur and Sadie Adler — and the photos look like they’re straight out of the game.

The first Red Dead Redemption game came out in 2010 and immediately earned mass appeal, with the 2018 prequel keeping the franchise alive and fans flocking to the servers of the Western adventure game.


As with every popular game, film or TV show, though, fans have all different ways of honoring their favorites, and cosplayers are no exception.

Arthur and Sadie are a favorite of Red Dead fans.

We’ve seen some incredible cosplays in our time, but this one is really something special, with ‘maul_cosplay‘ creating his flawless take on protagonist Arthur Morgan.


That’s not all, though, as he also recruited female cosplayer ‘msskunk’ as Sadie, bringing the fan-favorite couple to life.

“RDR2 is my absolute favorite game and I think Arthur and Sadie should spend more time together,” maul said in his Instagram post. “That’s what the photos are about. Arthur and Sadie enjoying life and spending some quality time together.”

Arthur and Sadie’s relationship was an important one in Red Dead Redemption, and it would have been interesting to see their story developed further, and fans are definitely interested in seeing what occurs between the two — and the cosplay really showcases that. Not to mention, the outfits and setting are literally spot-on, and it’s almost impossible to find any difference between this and the characters themselves.

Both the photos and the cosplays themselves came out looking incredible, as if the characters were lifted right out of the game. Heck, you wouldn’t be laughed at for mistaking this for game art rather than just a photo of two cosplayers paying homage.

This isn’t the first of maul’s cosplays to make waves, with some brilliant looks taken from the likes of Assassin’s Creed and Borderlands 3’s Zane.

If you’re looking for great gaming cosplays, maul and msskunk might be one of the best places to look, since their attention to detail is sublime.
