How to unlock Fast Travel in Red Dead Redemption 2 and move faster around the world

Red Dead Redemption 2 has a massive map, and you spend the majority of your time playing simply riding around heading to the next blip on the map, but fast travel is available after you complete the necessary steps.

Fast travel is not immediately available, and it is not made clear how you unlock until you have actually unlocked it, which can make it slightly confusing.

In fact, you will need to complete a number of missions and earn a significant amount of money before the fast travel feature is possible.

Once completing the introductory phase of the game and reaching the first camp at Horseshoe Overlook, you will need to complete a mission for Strauss called ‘Money Lending and Other Sins’.

Once this mission is complete, you will unlock a ledger next to the camp money box, behind Dutch’s tent.

Enter the ledger, and scroll to the page with camp upgrades. You will first need to upgrades Dutch’s tent (First things first), which will then allow you to purchase the next upgrade to Arthur’s Wagon, buying a map. This map is what will allow you to fast travel.

In total you will need $545 to complete purchase the upgrades ($225 for Dutch’s tent, $320 for Arthur’s).

The map will then be placed next to Arthur’s bed, you simply need to approach it and select the location you wish to travel to.

If you haven’t advanced far enough in the story, or don’t yet have the money to buy the camp upgrades, there are some alternative fast travel options.

You can visit train stations (which double as post offices) to buy train tickets, which will allow you to pick exact locations on the map and travel to them.

Similarly you can also you Stage Coaches, which are often found nearby the train stations in towns, which act like Taxi’s from Grand Theft Auto.

Finally, there is also an ‘Auto Ride’ feature, so if you aren’t near camp or a town, you can still ease the chore of travelling long distances somewhat. Simply use the cinematic feature (hold touch pad on PS4) while holding the run button, and release the run button when cinematic has been activated.

While doing this, your horse will automatically follow the road, or head to a waypoint on the map, however, you will still want to keep an eye on the game for ambushes or other random events.

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.
