Upgrade Dutch's Lodgings
You can inspire the rest of your gang members to contribute more to their lodgings and take some of the pressure off you by going to the ledger beside the cash box in your camp and upgrading Dutch's lodgings. Doing this will cost you $220 and it will also unlock a map that allows you to fast travel from camp.

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

Stagecoach Taxi:

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:

Buy Horse Reviver
Make sure you are always carrying a horse reviver with you since horse death is permanent and you don't want to wind up stranded with a dying horse. You can buy horse revivers at the general store for $10.

Arthur's Warning Shot
Tapping the d-pad while aiming will make Arthur raise his pistol into the air, tapping it again will make him fire off a warning shot. This action comes in useful when you need to intimidate NPC's or scare off wildlife.

Check Stolen Jewellery
Once you have progressed far enough into the story you will unlock a fence who you will be able to pawn off stolen goods. The fence has the ability to craft talismans from certain pieces of jewellery that give permannent buffs so check to see if any items are on the list before you sell off all your stolen trinkets.

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.

Help in Camp
There are four different ways that you can help in camp. These are; handing over ammunition, sharing cash from completed jobs, incresing medical stocks, and delivering game and pelts you collected while out hunting.

Loot Enemies in Chapter 1
During the opening chapter there are two gunfights that leave a lot of your enemies dead on the ground. During those scenes ignore the people telling you to hurry up and loot every corpse you find. Doing this will enable you to enter Chapter 2 with $30 in your pocket, all the ammunition you can carry and a satchel that is almost full with provisions.

Looting Houses
When you loot houses make sure you check every drawer, cabinet, wardrobe and even the chimney. You may not always find cash but you will find provisions for your satchel which you can hand over to the camp instead of cash.

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.

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.

Dead Eye Meter
Make sure you keep your dead eye meter replenished by shooting things, or just by chewing tobacco. If you have been looting the pockets of everyone you have shot you should a decent supply for when you enter a gunfight.

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.

Note: Press 'Triangle' a second time if the entry pad does not automatically appear after the first prompt.

Once unlocked a cheat will appear in the list and you will be able to toggle it on and off. If however you do decide to activate these cheats you will not be able to save Single-Player progress or collect Trophies for the duration of the playthrough. Therefore it is recommended that you save the game before enabling these cheats.

Note: Some cheats require..

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).

Poisonous Trail Treasure Map Hunt
The video below is a guide for the Poisonous Trail Treasure Map Hunt (location and solution). This Treasure Hunt starts when you pick up a map in a cabin at Cairn Lake as shown in the video. In the 100% checklist it counts for the 'Treasure Hunter' collectible task.
