Red Dead Redemption 2: Things you need to know

There is a lot of ground to cover in Red Dead Redemption 2 and it's easy to spend hours just traversing the land on your horse.

The open world of Red Dead Redemption 2 is quite expansive, sprawling across numerous geographic areas with their own ecosystems.

The method for fishing with dynamite in Red Dead Redemption 2 couldn't be any more straightforward: simply rock over to the nearest body of water, look for some aquatic victims light the fuse on a stick of dynamite, then throw it into the water while aiming at the fish. This is expensive, but it's one of the best upgrades to get first in Red Dead Redemption 2 because it encourages other gang members to donate more as well. Scheduled to release alongside the new game, you may find it hard to track down the RDR2 Companion App download page. Having the app also means you can remove the heads-up display from your TV when you're playing the game and still have Arthur's stats on hand.

Certain shops in Red Dead Redemption 2 will have illegal games of Poker running behind closed doors.

And for those needed a bit more of a guiding hand, you can even use the Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App as a full Piggyback-produced guide if you're willing to pay. If you want to play now and you have either an Xbox One or a PlayStation 4, it's probably better to buy it for one of those platforms rather than wait for a PC version that feels likely but is far from guaranteed. This feature doesn't exactly equate to "fast travel", but lets you ride between waypoints while you take a break from the controller.

You can find the rest of the codes here. This is hardly surprising given that the enhanced Xbox One is the most powerful console around. Sometimes you just want to slap on a holster, hop on a horse, and kick up some trouble. With that, the Gambler Challenge set will be done and dusted, and hopefull you won't have lost too much money along the way.
