In Red Dead Redemption 2, you can invite friends and other players to your session. What this means, is that they will join your game world and be able to interact with you & complete missions together.
It's a lot like how it works in GTA V Online. Team up, explore the world, do some robberies or just have races. Although as well as having normal game sessions, you can now form posses, which is similar to a gang.
In this guide, we're going to show you how you can invite your friends to your game world in Red Dead Redemption 2 Online. If you want to check out some more guides for the game, check out our dedicated area here.

In Red Dead Redemption 2 Online, voice chat is enabled by default with the setting set to 'Everybody'. This means that you can hear other players in the game world no matter where they are in the map, whilst they can also hear you.
Some players may not be aware of this and make some obnoxious sounds or just be annoying in general. Luckily, there is a mute option available so that you can block those players voices out.
Below, we're going to show you how to mute other players in Red Dead Redemption 2 Online. If you want to check out some more guides for the game, we have a dedicated area here.

Similar to GTA V Online where you can lock your vehicle, in Red Dead Redemption 2, you can prevent access to your horse from other players. This helps prevent it getting stolen and hard to get back.
There are a few different access options available. If you're doing a mission with friends, you can allow access just to them. Or you can set it so only you can ride your horse.
Below, we have a quick guide for changing the horse access and lock settings in Red Dead Redemption 2. If you want to check out some more guides for the game, check our dedicated section here.

As you venture into Red Dead Redemption 2 online, you have a short introduction that you have to do. It consists of a few tasks that you've likely already completed in the single player mode.
One of the first tasks, is to find the hideout in the forest. The search area is pretty large, but luckily there is a quick and easy way of finding it.
Look up to the sky, and search for a plume of smoke. This will indicate the location of the hideout. This is a useful tip to use as you explore the world in both Multiplayer & Singleplayer. Plumes of smoke indicate camps where you may find loot.
As you approach the hideout, be ready to engage into combat with some bandits. When aiming onto an enemy, flick your aim upwards slightly in order to hit a headshot, which should kill enemies instantly.
After killing them, make sure...
The Red Dead Redemption 2 map is huge in size. For that reason, Rockstar have decided to allow players to fast travel to different locations around the map, although only if you're level 65 and over.
Using a Fast Travel Post, you can travel from your own camp to different locations around the map. Whilst the option is there, I haven't been able to use it yet due to the online mode just coming out and not being level 65 yet.
Below is a quick guide that shows how to setup the fast travel post in Red Dead Redemption 2 Online. If you want to check out some more guides for the game, make sure to check our dedicated area here.
To fast travel, interact with Cripps who can be found in your camp. Your camp can be found at the blue tent icon on the map. Select the 'Wilderness Outfitters'...
With Red Dead Redemption 2 being a massively multiplayer game, it has a voice chat system built in. By default, everyone in your session can hear you, and you can also hear them. When a player speaks, you'll see their name appear on the right hand side.
If a player is being loud or obnoxious, you can also choose to mute them and report them. Or using the in-game settings, you can change your voice chat settings so that only friends can hear you, or everyone in your posse for example.
Below, we have a quick guide for enabling voice chat and changing the settings for Red Dead Redemption 2. Whilst we've covered some more guides for the game which can be found here.
