Yes 'Red Dead Redemption 2' Has Fast Travel, Here's How To Unlock It


Red Dead Redemption 2Rockstar

Once you get past the initial missions in Red Dead Redemption 2, you will start to get at least some kind of sense of how big the world is. You will keep getting assigned missions further and further out, and the rides there and back start to take a long time. At about hour 3-4 or so, you might find yourself asking “does this game even have fast travel?”

It does, in fact, as I thought Rockstar might abandon it entirely for the sake of “immersion,” but thankfully it does exist in the game, even if it is extremely well-hidden.

As you may have realized by now, you can’t just pick towns or camps on your map and hit a fast travel button there. Rather, fast travel is something you can only do from your camp, and the way you unlock it is through your ledger.

Your camp ledger lays out all the different upgrades you can buy for your camp, and there’s one near the end which upgrades Dutch’s lodgings because he “wants something more comfy.” For $200+ this seems like BS, as who cares how Dutch feels, but when you buy it, it makes the rest of camp donate more money to the bin, so it actually does have a benefit.

But after that, you unlock the next upgrade, which is a fast travel map that will go on the back of Arthur’s tent. It costs over $300, so between this, the Dutch upgrade and what you have to buy before that as an introduction to the ledger, all in all it costs about $600, so you’re going to want to start saving as soon as you can.

Once you unlock fast travel, there are some things you should know about it, as no, it doesn’t just create point-to-point fast travel on the map like this is Fallout or Assassin’s Creed.

  • You can only fast travel from this one map at your camp, so you have to be in camp to use it
  • This does not unlock the ability to fast travel back to camp, so you will still have to ride there
  • You can only use fast travel if your horse is close by, it will not work otherwise
  • You can only travel to locations you’ve discovered already, and you will kind of have to memorize where they are as it doesn’t actually show them on the map when you select them from a list

It is a…perplexing implementation of a fast travel system to say the least. I don’t mind the game waiting a while to unlock it as that does encourage exploration, but the way they hide it in the ledger is kind of absurd, and I would not be surprised if a ton of people never found it on their own. And once you do have it, the inability to at least fast travel back to camp seems like a terrible idea, as does the requirement for your horse to be in camp as well. But hey, that’s Rockstar “immersion” for you. But it’s better than nothing, at the very least.

I hope this was helpful to you, as perhaps you can now unlock it relatively quickly rather than not discovering it exists until like hour 50 or something. Happy hunting.
