Where to find M1899

The M1899 can be bought from the gunsmith in Saint Denis. It costs $350, but it will probably be locked the first time you see it. It will unlock as you progress through the story, so keep checking every time you’re around. It is only available in singleplayer, so don’t expect to find it in RDR2 Online.

How to get new guns on console?

You can’t, at least for now. The new weapons are PC exclusive at the moment, but there’s no doubt in my mind they’ll be added to the console versions in the near future. For now, don’t waste time trying to find them – they aren’t there.

If you’ve been playing on PC, you’ve also experienced some errors and performance problems. People in non-English speaking countries have had trouble getting the game to show subtitles in English, performance has been terrible across the board. The best thing you can do to improve performance is to switch from Vulkan to DX12 and vice versa, to see which works better, but also turning off some of the anti aliasing options. Well, actually, the best thing you can do is shelf the game until Rockstar have fixed it, which they will inevitably do, given enough time. Have patience, and you’ll end up with a more pleasant experience overall.

If you end up getting stuck at another point, you might want to check out some of the other guides we have. We've written about mysteries like the missing person Gavin, the Rhodes Gunsmith prisoner, the locked door at Valentine doctor. We also have instructional guides that show how to rob stores without getting bounty or where to sell jewelry and gold bars. If it's collectibles or key items you're after, we've found all the Penny Dreadful comic books, Chick's treasure map location, or that famous pipe for Dutch. Finally, if you don't care to explore the map yourself, you could take a look at our Watson's Cabin and Catfish Jackson's Homestead locations guides. In the latest Red Dead Online Moonshiners Update you'll have a chance to find Navy Revolver and Best Shack Locations.

    I’ve been playing this on PC since it launched. It runs perfectly smooth in ultra high settings at 60fps. No problems. Hasn’t crashed once.

      You’re very lucky mr Simpsons ,i have a 1100 $ build /without screen mouse and keybord/ i just bought it 2 weeks ago and the game runs like a potato on my pc…
      I did everything , the game still crash.
      I love Rockstar but goddamn they can’t make a game on pc.
      They are going to fixe the game of course , but this is going to take a LOT of time.

    I have had this game since PC release played it on 3 different builds, a i7700k, GTX 1060 build. A i59400F prebuilt 600$ pc, and an i59400F overclocked complete new build with a 1660ti and liquid cooling. Never have had a problem. Recording and streaming is crisp as well while playing rdr2

    These pistols should never make it to online as it wouldn’t make sense with online being set a year before the story events of rdr2 they wernt made until this year

    The M1899 is unlocked after ‘The Battle of Shady Belle’ – which is the final mission of Chapter 3, so I think that means you get it at the start of Ch.4.
