Like saving, Red Dead Redemption 2 fast travel is an oddly unexplained feature. For whatever reason, Rockstar doesn’t make it clear in the game how to fast travel. Whether this is to encourage the player to explore or what have you, it makes it confusing. Is there even fast travel in the game? If so, how do you unlock and use it?
These are questions that we are going to answer in this Red Dead Redemption 2 fast travel guide. Overall, we highly recommend that players just go out into the Wild West and explore for themselves. However, for various reasons, you might find yourself needing to quickly get somewhere. Whether you’re short on time or whatever reason, we’ve got your back.
How to Unlock Red Dead Redemption 2 Fast Travel
Let’s go ahead and say it: there is Red Dead Redemption 2 fast travel. Unfortunately, you don’t immediately have access to it in the game. You can get it relatively early on. If you want to unlock it, head to your base camp. You are going to want to head to the camp ledger and check out the various upgrades available.
One of the last upgrades you choose from is the option to upgrade Dutch’s tent. While it seems like an unimportant upgrade, this one unlocks a whole lot of important ones. This includes the Red Dead Redemption 2 fast travel feature. With that done, you can upgrade your own tent to have the map for fast traveling.
However, there are a few caveats to this. For one, it costs around $600 in total so you will need to get cash fast in order unlock this. Another is that you can only fast travel from the camp to places you’ve been and not vice versa. This lets you quickly get to places but you will still need to hoof it back manually.
