How to Upgrade Camp in Red Dead Redemption 2

Upgrade your camp for unique abilities.

by AOTF Staff

In Red Dead Redemption 2 you’re going to be spending a lot of time at your camp.  It’s a hideout for Arthur Morgan and the Van Der Linde gang but it can be upgraded to more than it starts out as.  As the gang performs jobs to earn money, they’ll be able to sock away some loot for improvements to the camp.  Conveniently located next to the contributions box, the ledger allows you to purchase upgrades for the wagons in the camp that can give you powerful healing tonics, ammunition, food, and more.  Upgrade the camp far enough and you’ll be able to fast travel.

There’s no right way to upgrade your camp in Red Dead Redemption 2.  It really comes down to what you want most.  Though there are a couple of upgrades that are very important and this is in the lodging area if you want fast travel.  There’s also a section of other upgrades which allows you to purchase Leather Working Tools which allows Pearson to make crafted items.
