We have already covered 14 gameplay secrets in Red Dead Redemption 2, but our experiments with the game did not end there. The Wild West, created by Rockstar, is a real sandbox in which you can discover new mechanics and useful life hacks through numerous experiments, it was also not without seemingly obvious things, but even they can not be missed due to inattention. You will learn about the most useful and interesting gameplay secrets in the second part of our guide to Red Dead Redemption 2.
All control tips are only relevant for the PlayStation 4 version of Red Dead Redemption 2.
1. Pick up "expensive cigarettes"
The Ministry of Health warns not to smoke, with which we absolutely agree, but only if we are not talking about RDR 2. If you want to find all the cigarette cards in the game, then you simply have nothing left but to turn Arthur into a heavy smoker. Each pack of expensive cigarettes contains a unique cigarette card, so even if you have the maximum number of them in your inventory, smoke one, free up space in your bag, take a pack and get a new card.
2. Open the safe with a tomahawk
The most obvious way to open a safe is to blow it up with dynamite. But if it is not at hand, then another lafhak will help - use a tomahawk and just throw it at the door of the safe, then pick it up. In this case, you don't even have to waste valuable ammunition.
3. The secret to a lush beard and long hair
Probably it will hardly be a secret for anyone that in the new Western from Rockstar, Arthur has hair on his head and beard growing in real time. The only problem is that the hair itself only grows to a certain length and is not particularly impressive. For further growth, you will have to take a special tonic. Therefore, if you want to grow a lush beard in Red Dead Redemption 2, then take a hair growth tonic. You can find it both from merchants and by carefully exploring the world. The tonic is in the bag - the "Equipment" tab.
4. Bounty hunters or "Night of the Living Dead"
Robbery, robberies and murders are common moments in Arthur's life, but the lawyers are not asleep and, with a high reward for the capture of the main character, they send bounty hunters. Not only do they follow in your footsteps and can overtake anywhere in the world, they also have an unpleasant habit of pretending to be dead. In order to avoid unpleasant surprises, we recommend that each shot hunter be treated with an additional portion of lead in the head.
5. Eagle Eye to detect active objects
The "Eagle Eye" ability works almost similarly to "The Witcher's Vision" from The Witcher 3, which means that with its help it is allowed not only to track down an animal, but also to highlight all active objects with which Arthur can interact.
6. Life hack for hunting lovers
For sheer realism in Red Dead Redemption 2, the developers allowed to put only one animal carcass or a larger skin on a horse's croup. Not a pleasant limitation, but there is a way to avoid it. If you have two horses, then order one of them to follow you, and put Arthur on the other. This way you can double the amount of loot you carry.
7. Almost endless horse gallop
Like Arthur, the horse has both base stamina and stamina expended during the gallop. If you overdo it and bring the horse to exhaustion, then it will throw off the main character, but our Red Dead Redemption 2 guide will tell you how to avoid this unpleasant incident and replenish the horse's stamina stamina without spending. When you see that the secondary stamina has come to an end, press the L3 key to pet the horse. In this case, you don't even have to stop, and the horse's stamina will recover by about 20%.
8. How to tidy up Arthur's appearance without using a bath
Smeared in mud and in traces of blood, Arthur is not only not the most pleasant sight, but an important moment for the gameplay, as wild animals begin to better smell the main character. To wash, you can take a bath, swim in a pond or get caught in the rain, but there is an instant way to put Arthur in order at absolutely any point on the map. To do this, go to your trusty horse, hold L1, select equipment for the horse and find a slot with clothes. You can choose to wear a different outfit that you put on a horse or simply update the clothes you are currently wearing.
9. Craft items without lighting a fire
The "set up camp" option is useful if you need to make a tonic or dish from animal meat. But when kindling a fire, Arthur transfers him to the nearest checkpoint, which is not very convenient when you tracked down an animal with a skin of excellent quality and there is no necessary ammunition in your inventory, for example, an improved arrow. Therefore, here is a life hack for you - hold down the "triangle" key on the gamepad and Arthur will be able to make items at any time without moving to the nearest checkpoint. When you activate "rest", items from the following tabs are available for crafting: "weapons", "ammunition", "hunting".
10. Fast reload with Dead Eye
We'll finish our Red Dead Redemption 2 guide with one secret that will allow you to instantly reload your weapon. When the Dead Eye ability is activated, Arthur's ammo is fully restored in the clip. This technique will come in handy in an especially hot firefight, when any seconds of delay and the need to spend time on animation of weapon reloading can cost your life.
