In Red Dead Redemption 2, the members of the Dutch gang are (more or less) friends. They can ask Arthur to bring them various items. This page contains information on the locations of the request items for your companions in RDR2.
- General information
- You can start looking for these items right from the beginning - some of them are in prearranged and/or widely available locations. However, you can't give these items to your friends whenever you want. Arthur needs to learn that a specific gang member is looking for something. Usually, this happens when a gang member speaks to the main character during his visit at the current camp (see picture 1). This request is also added to your log (the picture 2). There are only a few instances where request circumstances are different, i.e. when you are traveling with someone during a mission.
- The majority of the conversations with the gang members happen during a day, but some meetings can only be triggered during a night. Visit the camp at different hours or use your bed to speed up the time.
- Almost all requests happen in chapters 2-4. There are only a few exceptions - some of them can appear after the epilogue.
- Bring the requested items to improve your relations with a given character and to receive honor points. Also, these gang members should give you something as a gift - this happens after some time passes (i.e. after 24 hours). These items will appear on the crate next to Arthur's bed.
- Complete any 5 requests to unlock Errand Boy achievement/trophy. Start fulfilling requests after you reach the second chapter.
- Due to bugs, finding some of the gang members can be problematic. Don't expect that you will complete all of the requests during your playthrough. However, you should visit the camp as often as possible and always stop when someone talks to Arthur. Not every conversation ends with a request, but doing that will reduce the risk of missing on them.
Abigail's request is rather unusual. The woman asks you for $5. You won't receive anything besides a few honor points.
Bill asks you for a Hair Pomade. This item can be bought at a store or found somewhere in the world. As a reward, Bill will give you repeater ammo.
