The world of Red Dead Redemption 2 is absolutely massive and thus it is very hard for you to go from one place to the other due to the time that is required, especially if you do not utilize your ability to fast travel. There are multiple methods of fast traveling in RDR2. This guide will help you learn all about fast traveling methods at your disposal, how to unlock them, and use them to quickly explore the Wild West.
Red Dead Redemption 2 Fast Travel
There are a total of 3 different fast travel methods that you can use in Red Dead Redemption 2. The first one is the free option which can be unlocked by simply upgrading your camp.
The second one is through the Post Office and the Trains while the last one is the Stagecoach which can be hailed in almost every town. Let’s take a look at how to use all of the methods of fast travel in RDR2 one by one.
Upgrading your Camp
During Chapter 2, you can complete Strauss’ story mission known as “Money Lending and Other Sins” to get the ledger next to the tithing box which will then unlock Camp Upgrades for you.
The first 2 upgrades are known as “First Things First” and “Next in Line” which cost about $545 in total. The second upgrade will unlock a fast travel map for you.
Now, you can use the camp to quickly travel to towns which you have already discovered. However, do note that you cannot travel back and will need to use your horse or one of the other fast travel options available in RDR2.
You can buy tickets for the train from any Post Office and they usually cost between $5-$15. However, not all of the stations go to another station so your options are somewhat limited. Regardless, you can use this method even with a bounty and the travel is instant.
Lastly, the price for stagecoach is pretty much the same as it is for a train ticket. You can fast travel anywhere you want in Red Dead Redemption 2 but the problem is that the method is not usable if you have a bounty on your head.
In order to avail the services of a stagecoach, you need to first pay off the bounty and then the option will become available for you.
