Crafting and crafting recipes in Red Dead Redemption 2 Red Dead Redemption 2 Guide and Walkthrough

In Red Dead Redemption 2 there are some crafting mechanics. They allow you to produce ammunition, food, medicine and baits. In this section of the tutorial we have shown you how to start crafting items, and prepared a list of things that you can craft into RDR2 yourself.

How to start crafting?

In Red Dead Redemption 2, in order to start crafting you have to stop. Unlike other games, you can't craft ammunition or food on the run or on horseback. In addition, it is not enough to merely stop; you have to rest or set up the camp. It depends on what you want to create. Some items require a bonfire.

However, you must remember that you cannot rest or set up camps in the general camp of your gang - Crafting and crafting recipes in Red Dead Redemption 2 - Game basics - Red Dead Redemption 2 Guide

However, you must remember that you cannot rest or set up camps in the general camp of your gang. In order to set up your camp, you have to get away a few hundred meters from the headquarters.

Rest

In order to rest in Red Dead Redemption 2, you simply have to stand still, away from any possible interactive objects, e.g. a few meters away from your horse. If you are already at a suitable distance, hold down the triangle for PS4, Y for XBOX. Your character will then crouch on the ground. You will see 3 possible options:Set up the camp, Crafting and Stand Up.

If you click the craft option, a crafting window will appear - Crafting and crafting recipes in Red Dead Redemption 2 - Game basics - Red Dead Redemption 2 Guide

If you click the "craft" option, a crafting window will appear. There, you will be able to create basic items - ammunition and weapons. These are the elements of the hero's equipment for preparation of which you don't need fire.

Setting the camp

You can set up a camp in RDR2 in two ways - Crafting and crafting recipes in Red Dead Redemption 2 - Game basics - Red Dead Redemption 2 Guide

You can set up a camp in RDR2 in two ways. The first way is to start the rest and choose set up the camp. The second way is to enter the hero's items and choose the "set camp" option. When you click on it, the character will set a camp. It will be either a tent with a campfire (in case of rain) or a sleeping bag with a campfire (if not raining).

By the bonfire you can craft ammunition, weapons, food, medicines, baits and horse-care items - Crafting and crafting recipes in Red Dead Redemption 2 - Game basics - Red Dead Redemption 2 Guide
