How to Make Money in RDR2 Online

It is no secret that players want to make money in games they play. Whether through real world or in-game transactions, there is always a way to make a dollar. Some games allow you to create a persona and conduct business through it, but most games don’t have this feature. In this article, we will teach you how to make money in Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) by completing missions and selling your services online.

The Basics Of Making Money In RDR2

As a beginner, you may be wondering how much money you will actually be able to make in RDR2. Well, to start with, it depends on how much time you spend playing the game. The amount of money you will earn in GameValue is never displayed in-game, so you have no way of knowing how much you will actually earn unless you check the online reports. These reports are usually posted daily and contain the earnings from all the members who played the game that day, including yourself. We recommend checking these reports often as you will have the opportunity to see your daily earnings and how much you need to stay in GameValue. The best part is you can do this without having to leave the game.

How To Make Money In RDR2 Through Missions

While missions in RDR2 cannot give you an assured income, they can bring you revenue that you can use to buy items in game or convert to real world cash. In terms of how you go about making money through missions, it all depends on which ones you decide to do. You can choose to hunt down wanted creatures for cash, steal from or rob various businesses, participate in races where you use illegal drugs, hijack vehicles, deal drugs, perform bodyguard duties, become a bloodthirsty warmonger, and more! With so much opportunity on offer, it is quite a coin toss as to whether you will actually make any money at all from these missions.

How To Make Money In RDR2 By Providing Other Services

Other than participating in missions, you can also make money in RDR2 by providing other services. The most lucrative of these are murders, heists, and safecracking. As the game doesn’t offer any real estate property, we don’t recommend choosing this route to make money. However, if you feel you are the type of person who can handle killing then you can definitely make a living off of this in-game profession. Just make sure you aren’t going to get caught or arrested by any law enforcement agencies. You will have to deal with intense interrogation and might even be required to go to trial. Luckily for you, we are going to teach you how to provide other services in a way that will ensure you don’t get caught.

How To Stay In GameValue Without Being Robbed By Hackers

One of the most prominent problems for players is the rampant use of hacks in RDR2. Hacks are tools used by cybercriminals to gain an unfair advantage in-game. They can and often do cause unexpected glitches that make gameplay unstable and even turn the game completely off-side. There are several hacks in RDR2 that can and often do mess with the player’s money. Fortunately for you, we are going to teach you a method of staying in GameValue without being robbed by hackers.

Stay In GameValue By Changing Your Gaming Behavior

There are several things you can do to ensure you don’t get robbed in RDR2. One of the most effective things you can do is change your behavior when playing the game. The majority of hackers and scam artists target solo gamers who play on public computers because they believe those people are more likely to be careless and have larger wallets. If you play on a private computer, you can change the way your behavior reflects that you are a trusting person who doesn’t need to be wary of criminals. Some gamers use VPNs (virtual private networks) when playing on public computers because it makes it harder for hackers to track their activity. Even when using a VPN, you should still be careful about which public computers you use and which ones you share your login details with. Hackers might still be able to access your account through one of the shared computers even when using a VPN. Changing your behavior when playing means you have to be extra careful when using public computers but it also means you stand a chance of avoiding getting robbed. You will still have to be vigilant about your surroundings but it’s a price you have to be willing to pay.

Use Safes To Stay In GameValue

Safes are one of the most effective ways you can stay in GameValue in RDR2. These are especially useful when playing on public computers because they offer a degree of protection from hackers and scam artists who want to steal from you. When using a safe, you are protected by layers of security and cannot be accessed by any unauthorized party. Safes also allow you to keep all your winnings in GameValue rather than have to manually withdraw cash from an ATM when you reach a certain earnings threshold. There are several benefits to using a safe when playing online but above all else, they ensure you don’t get robbed.

Use A VPN To Stay In GameValue

We discussed how much you should be using a VPN when playing on public computers in our guide to VPNs, so we will not go into great detail here. What you need to know is that using a VPN when playing online games can slow down your internet connection and block websites that you shouldn’t be accessing while playing. It also keeps track of your activity on each individual website so you cannot be traced by internet security agencies if you ever get caught. Using a VPN means you have to trust the software enough to keep your personal information safe but as you have to trust the software anyway, it might be the best option available to you.

Make Money In RDR2 By Charging For Quests

Though Red Dead Redemption 2 is an open world game, it mostly operates on a quest basis. You will get certain objectives in the game and there will be times when you will be asked to do certain things in order to complete these objectives. Doing these things will usually result in money for you. While some of the objectives are free and do not require you to charge others, the majority of them will request a small fee. Completing these quests and paying the people you meet along the way will provide you with funds that you can use to expand your capabilities in the game. For example, one of the early quests in the game rewards you with $5,000 for finding out what happened to a famous bandit named John Marston. This quest requires you to find out where he is buried and alert the authorities so they can exhume his remains and give him the proper burial he deserves.


We hope we were able to shed some light on how you can make money in Red Dead Redemption 2. Though this is predominantly an article on how to make money in-game, it is still relevant as there are many ways you can earn cash off-screen as well. We advise you to be wary of anyone who tries to coerce you into doing anything illegal, scamming others, or breaking the law. You should also be careful about which public computers you use and which ones you share your login details with. Finally, make sure you are using the right VPN or any VPN at all when playing online as they can do more harm than good. We hope we were able to help you and answer any questions you might have about making money in Red Dead Redemption 2.
