How to Unlock Fast Travel in Red Dead Online

Fast traveling in Red Dead Online is almost identical to Red Dead Redemption 2 -- except for a few key wrinkles.

The fast travel system in Red Dead Online is almost identical to the one found in Red Dead Redemption 2. Stagecoaches still play a large role in getting you around the map, and using the cinematic camera to ride your horse from one waypoint to another is still a good option. 

However, there are a few caveats in the fast travel system that are worth noting. 

Fast Traveling From Your Camp

Unlocking fast travel in Red Dead Redemption 2 meant getting the ledger and buying the Next in Line upgrade. However, unlocking fast travel in Red Dead Online has one of two requirements: 

  • Reach level 65 
  • Pay 112 gold

Arguably, neither of those tasks is easy, with the 112 gold requirement being especially difficult seeing that you get such little gold from missions and multiplayer modes like Most Wanted.

How to Access Fast Travel From Your Camp

However, once you do meet one of those requirements, you can access fast travel in your camp by: 

  1. Going to Cripps and focusing on him 
  2. Selecting "Wilderness Outfitters
  3. Choosing "Equipment"

Traveling by Other Means

Almost every one of the major hubs in Red Dead Online is connected by stagecoach as soon as you enter free roam. When you reach them, you'll be looking for posts with ram skulls on top of them and a broken stagecoach wheel leaning against them instead of the prim and proper signs from the base game. 

As you would expect, there are different prices for traveling to each of the hubs. However, know that traveling to your camp from any of the hubs -- even those very close to your camp -- will set you back a flat $15. 

You can also "fast travel" by using the cinematic camera while riding your horse. Simply place a waypoint, start riding, and activate the cinematic camera. Make sure you are on a road or designated path or your horse will just go forward a few steps and stop.

That's all you need to know about fast travel in Red Dead Online. Be sure to keep an eye out for more RDRO guides as we make our way through the online mode over the coming days.
