A Glitch In Red Dead Redemption 2 Lets You Get Any Horse Randomly


Red Dead Redemption 2 Glitch Lets You Get Any Horse Randomly

In a game set up in the Westernized era of the late 19 th century, the main charm for the players is the plethora of horses from different worthy breeds. That’s why players of Red Dead Redemption 2 remain on the hunt for stronger horses from different breeds. However, the most impressive horses either remain locked for a long time or are too expensive for an average player. But, the game now inadvertently lets you get any horse because of a glitch.

Horse Glitch In Red Dead Redemption 2

A Reddit user recently discovered a bug in the game Red Dead Redemption 2 that randomly spawns horses. He shared his findings in a Reddit post shared on the game’s subreddit. (Thank him for the generous move of sharing the trick!)

According to his discovery, there is a particular spot in the game which spawns all horses randomly. It means that from this specific spot in St. Dennis area, you may get any of your desired horses. As explained, you can simply save the game somewhere near this spot, then exit and reload. You will see new horses in there. Precisely, every time you save and exit, you will see new breeds. And, in this way, you can get your desired horse too, even the Arabians and Tiger Striped Mustangs.

According to the Reddit post, the glitch works in chapters 2 and 3. However, a YouTuber demonstrated that the glitch may work in other chapters too. In the comments, several other gamers confirmed that the glitch actually works.

Exploiting The Glitch

As said above, exploiting the glitch to get the desired horse requires repeated cycles of saving, exiting, and reloading the game. However, some other gamers explained another trick in the comments to this video that works faster. According to them, riding to other directions, such as towards north past the red barn or towards south to the barber shop, and then turning around will also work the same way.

Another YouTuber with alias xiong00813 shared a different trick in the comments that also works faster,

“Actually you don’t even have to dashboard and restart the game to refresh the horse spawn. Stable your horse outside side of the fence that leads directly to the train tracks. Once you take a peek at the horse stable and see none you like, quickly hop over the fence onto your horse and sprint over to the train tracks and stay there for 10-20 seconds and then sprint back to the stables, just look at the horses from behind the fence or go back in to check and see if any new horses respawn. Sometimes you will come back to an empty stable, well just repeat the sprint to train and repeat.”

While you can see plenty of horses spawn randomly at this spot, there is a trick to get the desired horse. Once you find the new horse, make sure to put your saddle on it. Also, don’t forget to whistle your old horse to follow you to the stable. Otherwise, you may lose your old horse.

After you try this trick, don’t forget to share with us if it really made you get your desired horse. Good luck!


How To Get War Horse And Outlaw Survival Pack In Red Dead Redemption 2

The day is finally upon us: the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. It is one of the most highly anticipated games of recent times, and it is not hard to see why. Rockstar have put together a sprawling open-world adventure that is set to blow all of its predecessors out of the water. This title is sure to have something for everybody, and it has seen an unprecedented amount of pre-orders as a result. One of the perks of pre-ordering the game is some exclusive DLC, and we will explain how to get the Red Dead Redemption 2 war horse and outlaw survival pack.

Red Dead Redemption 2 War Horse And Outlaw Survival Pack Explained

The war horse is a very useful thing to have in the game, as it has much better stats in comparison to the run-of-the-mill animals you will otherwise come across. Its increased levels of speed and stamina are sure to be very useful in the various missions throughout the game’s 60 hour storyline.

The outlaw survival pack contains a number of useful things which will aid you in your quests. They include consumable items to restore health, as well as your Dead Eye meter.

How To Get War Horse And Outlaw Survival Pack In Red Dead Redemption 2

Unfortunately, these two items are only available as DLC to those who pre-ordered the game. All of those who did so received a pre-order DLC code, which you will use to get the content.


To use your code, enter the online store of your preferred platform. From here, enter the Redeem Code (PS4) or Use a Code (Xbox One) section. Then simply input the code that you received.

When Will I Receive My Items?

You should receive your outlaw survival pack right away, but you will have to wait for the war horse.

You will first have to progress along the main story of Red Dead Redemption 2, specifically to the end of chapter one. At this point you will learn how to use stables in the game.

Once you have done so, you will be given your own stable. Simply enter this stable and your war horse should be there waiting.


Red Dead Redemption 2 Stirrup Locations – How to increase horse speed

Home » Red Dead Redemption 2 » Red Dead Redemption 2 Stirrup Locations – How to increase horse speed

Stirrups are part of horse gear in Red Dead Redemption 2. These horse accessories can increase the speed and acceleration of your mount, but they also increase stamina consumption. A lot of people are not happy with the walking speed of either the characters or the horses in the game, so it’s only natural to want to increase it. In case you’re one of them, our Red Dead Redemption 2 stirrup locations guide will show you where to find them.

Where to find horse stirrups in RDR2?

The short version is this – you’ll find horse stirrups in any stable you go into. Literally every stable in the game sells them. However, sometimes it’s not that easy to get ahold of a pair. First of all, you need to enter the stables on the horse you want to get the gear for. Otherwise the tack and services option will be greyed out. Once you’re past that hurdle, you need to choose tack, then stirrups.

This will open up a list of all the available stirrups. The prices vary – from $10 to a little below $40. Obviously, the most expensive ones are the best – but they’ll also drain your mount’s stamina faster.

A lot of people have mentioned that they’ve had issues once they’re in the tack menu – stuff being greyed out, mostly. It turns out you can’t customize horse gear if you’re using the preorder bonus saddle. So if you’re using any of the deluxe, special or ultimate edition saddles that come with the fancy horses, you’ll first need to buy a new one. Afterwards, all the other horse accessories should be available for purchase.

You can transfer the equipment from one horse to another, so don’t worry about investing into low-tier mounts. Or you can just run to the mountains and get the best horse in the game by following our free arabian location guide.

If you end up getting stuck at another point, you might want to check out some of the other guides we have. We’ve written about mysteries like the missing person Gavin, the Rhodes Gunsmith prisoner, the locked door at Valentine doctor. We also have instructional guides that show how to rob stores without getting bounty or where to sell jewelry and gold bars. If it’s collectibles or key items you’re after, we’ve found all the Penny Dreadful comic books, Chick’s treasure map location, or that famous pipe for Dutch. Finally, if you don’t care to explore the map yourself, you could take a look at our Watson’s Cabin and Catfish Jackson’s Homestead locations guides. In the latest Red Dead Online Moonshiners Update you’ll have a chance to find Navy Revolver and Best Shack Locations.


Red Dead Redemption 2 XP guide

Share this story

Share All sharing options for: Red Dead Redemption 2 XP guide

Rockstar Games via Polygon

Red Dead Redemption 2 has XP, but it’s obscured and buried deep inside of menus.

The good news is that you don’t really have to worry about the details — this isn’t a role-playing game. Still, wrapping your mind around how XP works in Red Redemption 2 can make the game (and what you might want to do in it) easier to understand. In this guide, we’ll teach you all about Red Dead Redemption 2 XP, including how you can see it and what you can do to earn it.

How (and why) to earn XP

Arthur and his horse both earn XP. Arthur earns XP to increase the length of the rings (or “bars,” as the game call them) that surround his Health, Stamina and Dead Eye Cores, while Arthur’s horse earns XP for the rings that surround its Health and Stamina Cores.

Health, Stamina and Dead Eye Cores in the middle, surrounded by their rings. Rockstar Games via Polygon

When you earn XP, you’ll reach new Levels, which also correspond to the rings that surround your Cores. Earn more XP, and you’ll ascend to the next Level and your rings will grow around their Cores, giving you more Health, Stamina and Dead Eye. The bigger the rings, the longer you can perform an associated action like aiming with Dead Eye.

Unlike in many other games, you won’t earn XP from completing missions. Instead, Red Dead Redemption 2 uses what we like to think of as the Skyrim model. If you want more of something, you’ll need to perform an action related to the thing that you want more of. For example, Arthur needs stamina to run. If you want more stamina, then run. The more you run, the more XP you’ll earn. Think of it like working out to get in shape.

As you do XP-related activities, you’ll see little icons that correspond to Health, Stamina and Dead Eye appear on the right side of the screen. (We’ll talk about this more below.) That’s your indication that you’re earning XP. You’ll also occasionally see your progress on the left side of the screen, letting you know that you’re, say, 75 percent of the way to the next Level.

Generally, how much you earn isn’t important. Again, this isn’t an RPG. What’s important is that you’re earning XP, which brings us to our next topic.

How to get XP

Running to increase stamina makes sense, but it’s not always obvious how you earn XP. In the menu, navigate to Player > Arthur (or Horse) and select Health, Stamina or Dead Eye. Then highlight Progression on the right. On that screen, you can see some of the activities that’ll earn you more XP.

Rockstar Games via Polygon

To increase your Health, engage in fistfights, shoot your bow and arrow, and go fishing (among other things). As you do those activities, you’ll see a little heart icon appear on the right of your screen. In the screenshot below, you can see that we earned 10 Health XP while fishing.

Rockstar Games via Polygon

Here are some activities for increasing your XP:

  • Health XP: fist fights, bow shots, fishing and other physical strength-related activities
  • Stamina XP: Sprinting, swimming and performing other strenuous activities
  • Dead Eye XP: Trick shots, hanging, crafting and other survivalist-related activities
  • Horse Bonding Level XP: Feeding, grooming and riding your horse
  • Horse Health XP: Tack and Bonding Levels, cleaning your horse
  • Horse Stamina XP: Tack and Bonding Levels

How to see your current XP

Rockstar Games via Polygon

If you go to Menu > Player, you can dig into the stats for Arthur and his horse. From there, highlight and click on Stamina (or Health or Dead Eye) Conditions. Highlight Progression on the right, and you’ll find more detail about XP than you’re likely to ever need.

At the bottom left of each menu screen for Health, Stamina and Dead Eye, you’ll see “Progress to Next Level.” That’s your numerical health XP. But again, it’s not worth worrying about in any sort of specificity. Broadly speaking, in the screenshot above, we know that Arthur is pretty close to getting to the next next Level of Health (which makes the ring bigger). That’s the most useful part of this information.

As long as you keep doing activities related to earning Health XP, you’ll increase that number. Each time you see the little icon appear on the right side of your screen (often without a number associated with it), you’ll know you’re gaining a modest amount of XP (often three or five points, based on our testing). Keep doing what you’re doing (or check the list above), and you’ll eventually make your way to the next Level.

Strike fear in the hearts of your enemies in Red Dead Redemption II when you ride up on ‘em mounted on the back of a giant cougar.

Horses are great. They are extremely useful and reliable. But they are also so boring. However, folks don’t want to walk around everywhere either. So why not ride a giant boar or even better, a giant cougar. Well, this is now possible thanks to a Red Dead Redemption II PC mod called “ Pig Rider .” You can also ride giant dogs, too.

As spotted by PC Gamer , this mod from JulioNB will let players climb up on a few different, giant animals and ride around the world of RDRII, confusing local townsfolk in the process.

The mod isn’t currently available to download for free. To ride a big cat, you’ll need to be Patreon supporter of JulioNB at the $5 level. That’s because the mod is currently in a prerelease form, so it will eventually be released for everyone at a later date. Until then, for a few bucks, you can ride the open plains He-Man style, on the back of a giant feline.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Best Horse – Free Arabian Location

Home » Red Dead Redemption 2 » Red Dead Redemption 2 Best Horse – Free Arabian Location

Best horse in Red Dead Redemption 2 is called the Arabian. It’s white horse that costs a lot of money, and has hands-down the best starting stats of all the mounts. Since it’s so expensive, most people won’t want to buy it from the stables. However, there’s a way to get the Arabian for free. If you want the best mount for your lonesome cowboy, our Red Dead Redemption 2 best horse guide will show you how to get free Arabian.

How to get free Arabian in RDR2?

The only place we’ve found the Arabian in the wild was at Lake Isabella, in the northwestern part of the map. It’s directly north of Mount Hagen, and the horse usually wanders around the western shore of the lake. The are is covered in snow, and the mount is white, so you might have a hard time spotting it.

Once you do, use the lasso to capture it. Slowly shorten the rope while calming the beast (square on PS4, X on Xbox). When you’re next to it, press triangle (Y on Xbox) to mount it. It will start thrashing, and you’ll have to press the left analogue stick and move it in the opposite direction in order to subdue it. Once it calms down, you’ll get a message saying you’ve broken the horse.

Now all you need to do is dismount, remove the saddle off your current horse (inspect it using L2/LT, then press up on the Dpad) and place it on the Arabian. And that’s it! Congats – you just save hundreds of dollars. The Arabian starts off with 6/9 speed and 6/8 acceleration. Caring for the animal and bonding with it will only increase those stats, so don’t forget to pat it on the head from time to time, brush its mane and feed it nice things.

If you end up getting stuck at another point, you might want to check out some of the other guides we have. We’ve written about mysteries like the missing person Gavin, the Rhodes Gunsmith prisoner, the locked door at Valentine doctor. We also have instructional guides that show how to rob stores without getting bounty or where to sell jewelry and gold bars. If it’s collectibles or key items you’re after, we’ve found all the Penny Dreadful comic books, Chick’s treasure map location, or that famous pipe for Dutch. Finally, if you don’t care to explore the map yourself, you could take a look at our Watson’s Cabin and Catfish Jackson’s Homestead locations guides. In the latest Red Dead Online Moonshiners Update you’ll have a chance to find Navy Revolver and Best Shack Locations.


How to get the fastest and rarest horse in Red Dead Redemption 2

With horses being virtually the only form of fast transportation in Red Dead Redemption 2, finding the best steed to throw your leg over is important. Here’s how to find and tame the fastest horse in Rockstar’s hit game.

Horses in Red Dead Redemption 2

Players can find horses in just about every town in Red Dead Redemption 2, but not all of them will put you in the best position to quickly get around.

There’s one horse, the rare Arabian Horse, that fits this bill perfectly and has players scrambling to locate it as soon as possible.

How to find the White Arabian Horse

This horse is the rarest in the entire game and can only be found roaming in a certain area on the map.

As soon as you’re able to freely roam throughout the world, you’ll want to head up to the northwest section of the map to begin your hunt.

After making your way towards Lake Isabella, it’s time to keep your eyes peeled for the rare horse. Given that it moves around randomly, it likely won’t be in the same place each time you head this way.

How to tame the White Arabian

Locating the horse isn’t the end of the battle, though, as it won’t just let you hop on and walk away easily.

You’ll want to approach the horse slowly using the LT/L2 button to hold your hands out and let the horse know you mean no harm. Just make sure to keep an eye at the meter on the bottom right of the screen to make sure the horse is staying as calm as possible.

Once you manage to get on the horse, you’ll need to keep on your toes since the horse will probably get spooked as soon as you hop on. You’ll want to keep pressing Square/X to keep it calm while also counteracting the horse’s movements with the Left Stick.

Eventually, you will break the horse in and then you’ll be able to put your saddle on and be on your way with the fastest and rarest horse in the game!


Red Dead Redemption 2 Online Game Play Free

The new part of Red Dead Redemption is out and we are about to once again plunge into the adventures of John Marston, an ex-outlaw who now has to rescue his family from the hands of the government trying to force the hero into collaboration. But we know he doesn’t like being pushed around! Guide Marston’s hand in this bloody redemption crusade and let each shot hit the bull’s eye!

Wild, wild West…

You will start your journey in an open world based on the map of Mexico and Western United States that’s free to explore and interact with. You can set off in any direction, arrive at any location and perform missions in any order. Most of the world is the wilderness, interspersed with settlements ranging from lonely farms to densely populated towns. On your way, you will also encounter random travelers and bandits. Traveling is performed mostly on foot or on horse, with a number of breeds available, each having unique characteristics. To use the horse, you must first tame it. Quick trips also can be done by train and you don’t necessarily need a ticket to use one – like we’ve all seen it in western movies dozens of times, you can simply stop the train by brandishing a gun in the driver’s face or taking the passengers hostage.

Ride, shoot, gamble

The gameplay consists of various missions that encompass several branches of a linear scenario, each containing a set goal. As you proceed through the story, you can engage in interaction with the environment, including other characters, and battle your enemies with the help of different fire weapons. Surely, no western can do without spectacular and thrilling gunfights. There are a number of mechanics at play here. You can either free aim or target a particular enemy, also blindfire and take cover. The ‘dead eye’ feature allows you to use slow motion for placing a number of targets on your foes and then automatically shoot at all marks in a fast succession. You can also aim at individual parts of their body to shoot them down without killing them. The range of weapons is impressive, from knives and lassos to pistols, shotguns, sniper rifles, canons and explosives.

Aside from the main storyline, you will participate in occasional events unfolding all over the game world. You will meet strangers asking for help, witness ambushes and public hangings, experience bandit and wild animal attacks. Assisting people and saving them from threat will increase your repute and bring you reward. You can also fill your pockets by hunting down criminals from wanter posters, dueling, collecting herbs for town medics and of course gambling – can you imagine a western without venturing into a crowded saloon and trying your luck at poker?

Are you a good or a bad guy?

Morality system plays a huge role in Red Dead Redemption, making people either respect your or hate and fear you. Ethically positive choices like rescuing an innocent from bandits or sparing someone’s life will earn you points of honor while negative actions like committing crimes will lower your honor level. This level also affects the way other characters behave around you. If you get famous as a outlaw without any moral principles, you will likely find town gates closed at your arrival and some people may even try to kill you at your very sight. On the other hand, players with high honor standard will be greeted and helped by most NPC.

There are many more surprises and challenges Red Dead Redemption 2 has in store for you! Discover them by playing the legendary western sequel online on our site!

Red Dead Redemption 2: How to Catch the Best Horse, The White Arabian

Horses can meet tragic ends in Red Dead Redemption 2, but this guide will show you how to easily get a new horse, as well as detailing the single best horse in the game.

Guide by Hirun Cryer, Staff Writer
Additional contributions by Jake Green

Should your mount ever meet an untimely demise in Red Dead Redemption 2, you might want to know how to get your hands on a new horse as easily as possible. In this Red Dead Redemption 2 horse guide, we’ll be walking you through how to get a new horse in Red Dead Redemption 2, so you can continue your adventures with Arthur Morgan. We’ll also be looking at what the best horse is and how to get it.

On this page:

Red Dead Redemption 2 Best Horse – White Arabian Location

If you’re wondering where you can find the single best horse in Red Dead Redemption 2, look no further than Lake Isabelle, marked on the map just below. It’s around this isolated lake that you can find the White Arabian horse, which is roaming free in the wild, waiting to be tamed. Make sure to head up there with plenty of ammo and healing tonics, as there’s loads of wolves patrolling the nearby wilderness.

Keep in mind that the White Arabian horse might not appear to you immediately while exploring around Lake Isabelle. Come first thing in the morning, so you’ve got daylight ahead of you while you roam around. As we mention below, you’ll want to lasso the White Arabian as soon as you see it, climbing off your horse while holding the rope, and working your way steadily towards the horse, calming it with Square/X as you go.

We’ve put together a lot of Red Dead Redemption 2 guides since launch. You can find them all in our RDR2 Walkthrough Hub

How to Get a Horse

We mentioned it briefly at the top of this guide, but it’s possible for your horse to die in Red Dead Redemption 2. While roaming the wilderness on horseback, you can see the health meter of your horse just above the mini map near the bottom left corner of the screen, shown as the icon at the top right.

Should your horse’s health meter decrease to zero, it’ll lie on the ground, barely breathing, and you have two options: either revive it with some horse pills, or put it out of its misery with your knife. We’ve got to say, putting our horse down in Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the most soul crushing things we’ve done in a long, long time.

But after this, what comes next? You might be stranded in the middle of nowhere without a mount, and keep in mind that you’ll need to detach your saddle from your deceased horse and carry it about with you, since that’s where all your bigger weapons like repeaters are stored.

So now you’re roaming the wild west, carrying a massive saddle, with no horse. In this situation, your most straightforward option is to murder an innocent passerby for their trusty steed. All you need to do is head to the nearest road on your map, put down your saddle, and wait.

How to Tame a Horse

Before too long (because Red Dead Redemption 2’s world is actually quite populated), an NPC is bound to ride by on a horse. Kill them by any means necessary, leaving their horse unscathed. Now, the horse will bolt slightly, so you’re going to have to equip your lasso from the item wheel by holding down the left bumper, and aim and throw the lasso at the horse.

Once the lasso has landed around the neck of the horse, you need to slowly move towards the horse, while pressing X/Square to calm it. You’ll need to calm the horse down if you want to mount it, and once you have mounted it, simply lead it back to your saddle, where you can hop off, pick up the saddle, and attach it to your brand new mount.

You’ve now earned yourself a new horse, although we should note that since this horse is entirely new and unfamiliar with Arthur Morgan, your bond level with it will restart from level 1. You’ll now have to spend some time roaming the wilderness with your new steed, if you want to increase its stamina and health.

How to Name Your Horse

Whenever you obtain a new horse in Red Dead Redemption 2, you’ll obviously want to give it a new name. To do this, head to the nearest Stables (marked by a horse shoe) on your map, and head into the barn. In here, you can tab between your horses, and if you select the ‘Services’ option, you’ll be given the opportunity to rename your horse then and there (no swear words, please).

How to Get the War Horse

If you purchased the Ultimate Edition of Red Dead Redemption 2, then you’ll have been given a download code for a pretty unique war horse. On whichever platform you’re playing, PS4 or Xbox One, you should firstly enter the code for your war horse on the respective store front.

Once you’ve done this, you then need to make it to at least Chapter 2 of the single player portion of Red Dead Redemption 2, where Hosea Matthews leads you to the stables in Valentine in the ‘Exit Pursued by a Bruised Ego’ mission. At the stables in Valentine, you’ll be able to purchase your war horse for free.

This might be the conclusion of this particular Red Dead Redemption 2 guide, but we’ve got plenty more guides on the wild west prequel here at USgamer. You can head over to our Red Dead Redemption 2 Wanted guide for an explanation of how the law functions, or our guide on how to shave Arthur in Red Dead Redemption 2.

If you’re looking for more on RDR2 keep it tuned to USG. First off there’s our story on the real-life cowboys that play the game. Next up, check out our full review.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.

Hirun Cryer is by far the most juvenile member of USgamer. He’s so juvenile, that this is his first full-time job in the industry, unlike literally every other person featured on this page. He’s written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.


Hoof it to GDC and see how Red Dead Redemption 2‘s horses were brought to life!

Rockstar Games’ 2018 epic Red Dead Redemption 2 earned lots of critical attention for the lifelike accuracy of its horses, and in March attendees of the Game Developers Conference will have a rare opportunity to hear all about how the Rockstar devs pulled it off!

Today, GDC organizers are excited to confirm that the GDC 2020 AI Summit will play host to “Making the Believable Horses of ‘Red Dead Redemption II‘”, a session from Rockstar North’s Tobias Kleanthous that aims to show you how Rockstar’s interdisciplinary team approached the design and implementation of naturalistic horse styling and movement.

It’s a great opportunity to learn more about how Rockstar devs collaborate on a game, and attendees can expect to leave with insight into Rockstar’s development process as well as practical insights about how to best improve the quality and feel of character animation systems!

GDC 2020 runs from Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 20th. This will be the 34th edition of GDC, and now that registration is officially open, you’ll want to take a look at the (ever-expanding) session schedule and your GDC pass options — register early to lock in the best price!
