Red Dead Redemption 2: 12 Tips & Tricks The Game Doesn't Tell You

How to get even MORE out of this mammoth game.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Arthur

Currently dominating every video game conversation on the planet, Rockstar's first game since GTA V - and a sequel eight years in the making - is the mighty Red Dead Redemption 2.

Honestly, it's a monolithic, totemic release. The sheer scope and scale of production is unprecedented; the result of a company maximising creative potential with a seemingly endless budget. Across its 60+ hour campaign you'll form an ironclad bond with a trusty steed, pull off gory headshots, rob trains, maintain a camp of followers, play poker, swap through scores of different outfits and take part in a ton more besides.

Yes, Red Dead 2 builds on the foundation set by 2010's original, but as a fully reactive world where even a fleck of mud on your face can determine an entire town's reaction to your presence, there is a LOT to pick apart.

Rockstar have clearly designed this to be explored and drank in across years' worth of game-time, so let's make sure you getting the most out of it.
