Red Dead Redemption 2: The Entire Compendium at a Glance.

The compendium is your central reference work in Red Dead Redemption. Here the game keeps a record of all the different secrets, collectibles and other elements of the overwhelmingly beautiful and large game world.

This has several advantages for you. On the one hand, you can always look up what exactly you have already discovered. In addition, you will also learn important information about individual weapons, fish or plants. Do you want to know where you can pull which fish out of the water and which bait would be best for it? Please, the compendium will tell you the answer (of course only if you have already discovered the relevant fish).

With every new discovery, a message pops up in the upper left corner of the screen indicating that the respective entry has been created in your virtual reference work. Hold down the menu key to go directly to the corresponding paragraph. Depending on which category this is, you can expand the available information by examining or collecting more specimens of the item.

Animals

Rockstar boasted more than once about the diverse wildlife of Red Dead Redemption 2 in advance. And as it now turns out, they had every right to do so: The fauna of the game is downright overwhelming in its biodiversity. In the animal rider you will find all living beings that have already been discovered, learn where they live, how you can hunt them most effectively and what you can make from them.

Legendary animals

Particularly noteworthy in connection with the species-rich fauna of RDR2 are the legendary animals. There are a total of 16 representatives who only appear once in the game. They are bigger, faster, stronger than their normal conspecifics and accordingly considerably more dangerous to you if you want to hunt them down. You only have a chance in battle with the right preparation. But first you have to track down and find the rarer critters. We will help you with all these points and tell you where you can find the legendary animals and what you have to consider when hunting.

fishes

No open world game can do without its own fishing mini-game. The version by Rockstar may be anything but world-shaking, but it is at least characterized by the diversity of species of catchable fish. On this page you will find the best fishing spots and baits for the respective fish species. You can also read here when the different sea creatures are most active.

Horses

Horses are in RDR 2 what cars are in GTA: Indispensable means of transportation. Of course, the developers at Rockstar weren’t satisfied with just one type of horse. Instead, you can spot more than a dozen, with each breed having its own characteristics. You can read here what these are and how the animals differ.

weapons

When you think of the Wild West, you inevitably see revolvers and other weapons in your mind’s eye. Of course, there is no shortage of argumentation amplifiers in the virtual world either. Which weapons are available, where you can find them and how they differ can be found in this guide.

Dream catcher

Like the cigarette pictures, the dream catchers are among the collectibles that you can look for in the wilderness of RDR 2. There are a total of 20 of them, which are not exactly easy to find. After all, the search for the Indian cult objects is worthwhile, because once you have collected them all, they will lead you to your reward: an ancient arrowhead that gives you an interesting perk for archery. You can find out where you can find the dreamcatcher and the reward at the end on the following page.

Dinosaur bones

And yet another collectible item that you can hunt down in the huge game world. The specialty of the search for the 30 hidden bones is that you not only need them for a few trophies, but also for the side mission “The Faith Test”. You get the same from Deborah MacGuiness, who is one of the “Strangers”. The search for the fossils will keep you busy for a while, but mission rewards are also waiting for you. How the entire mission works, where you can find the bones and how you get your rewards, you can find out on the linked page below.

Treasure maps

Treasure maps are one of the so-called “explorer challenges”. Basically you can look at them like a variation of the collectibles in the game, but with the difference that you have knitted a little historical plot including a scavenger hunt around the treasure maps. If you find and collect the various treasure maps, they will lead you – as the name suggests – to a valuable treasure. The only problem is that the treasure maps usually come in several parts and are scattered all over the country. The whole thing works like a scavenger hunt: you have to search for the individual parts first and follow their instructions to find the next card or the hiding place of the treasure. In total you can pursue three treasure hunts in RDR2.
