Red Dead Redemption 2 Guide: How To Make Money
As a wise man once said: "cash rules everything around me", and if Arthur Morgan had lived to see 1994, he'd probably agree. As you might expect, the keys to progression in Red Dead Redemption 2 don't lie in stockpiling experience or skill points, but cold hard cash. It's a rich man's world out in the old west, and if you have a good wad of money in your wallet, you can use it to buy better guns and equipment, feed yourself, groom your horse, buy new duds, customize the hell out of everything you own, and give you and your campmates a more comfortable way of living, among other things.
But like real life, it ain't easy getting rich. The Van Der Linde gang begin the game in a poor financial position, and for a long time you'll find yourself doing tasks for little to no reward, and feel like you're getting nowhere. But don't fret, there are plenty of avenues to make some bread in Red Dead 2. Here are all the ways we've discovered so far. It's spoiler free, and you don't even have to be a jerk all the time.
There are actually some money-related advantages to being a good guy, so you should carefully consider the approach you plan on taking with your version of the character. Diligence is one key aspect to making money, as you'll want to loot corpses, but there's more to it than ensuring you don't leave cash lying around on the ground after a fight. Read on for a full list of ways too make money quickly and easily.
