GamingRed Dead Redemption 2 Online: How to Report Players

In Red Dead Redemption 2 Online, you can report other players if you feel you need to. Rockstar will review the report and punish the player if they see it necessary. Although you shouldn’t abuse the report feature as Rockstar may end up punishing your own account.

Some reasons that you may wish to report a player is offensive language, cheating or possibly taking advantage of bugs or exploits. GTA V had it’s fair share of cheaters on all platforms, and it’s unknown if the same will happen with Red Dead Redemption 2.
