Fast Travelling

There are three ways that you can fast travel in Red Dead Redemption 2, they are listed below.

Costs twice as much as the train option for mostly the same destinations: Annesburg, Armadillo (!), Blackwater, Emerald Station (!), Macfarlane’s Ranch (!), Rhodes, Saint Denis, Strawberry, Tumbleweed (!), Valentine, Van Horn Trading.
Go into any post office, talk to the clerk, and buy a train ticket to: Annesburg, Benedict Point (!), Emerald Ranch, Rhodes, Riggs Stations (!), Saint Denis, Valentine, and Wallace Station (!).
Free Fast Travel from your Camp:

First Person View

Third-person view is the default but you may want to consider changing it to first person view when you are indoors or looting locations as you will be easier to pick up individual items and see them up and close and place your reticle precisely. You will also find changing to first person view will help you to control vehicles like horse-drawn carriages.

Jack Hall Gang Treasure Map Hunt

The video below is a guide for the Jack Hall Gang Treasure Map Hunt (location and solution). This treasure hunt is part of the stranger mission 'All That Glitters'. In the 100% checklist it is listed under the term 'Treasure Hunter'. The map is bought from Maximo after accepting his quest 'All That Glitters'. In case you robbed and killed him, you can buy it from any fence. You must then find 3 treasure locations. The first two are actually just maps that lead you to the next clue. The third location is the final treasure consisting of two gold bars. These can be sold at the fence for $1000 in cash. This is a good way to quickly make money early in the game (starting in Chapter 2).

Three Star Kills in Hunts

To get a perfect pelt the animal you target must have a three star rating and you will need to aim for a kill shot using the right ammo. You can check the animals star rating by using your binoculars and zooming in on your prey.

Horse Bonding

You can improve the health and stamina of your starter horse by bonding with it through hitching, patting, brushing and feeding. It does not take much work to max out those attributes.

Cheat Codes

To enter the following cheat codes simply pause the game, go to the 'Settings' menu and press 'Triangle' to bring up the 'Cheats' interface. This will be a list of locked 'Unknown' cheats and an entry pad. If you now type in each code exactly as shown below you will unlock the corresponding effect.
