Preorder & ultimate edition bonus items are extra stuff people received when buying Red Dead Redemption 2 PC before release. Some of them are available to everyone who preordered, others only to those who bought one of the fancier editions. They include a war horse, the outlaw survival kit, a treasure map, gold bars, cash and more. A lot of players are confused about accessing these things. If you’re one of them, this guide will show you where to find preorder bonus items in Red Dead Redemption 2.

How to get preorder bonus items in RDR 2?
You’ll get all that stuff for free, but you’ll have to wait until chapter 2. That’s when you establish your camp, and visit the stables and stores for the first time. Wait until you’re out of the snowy introduction (after you rob the train), then visit your outfit stash, the stables and the general store to get your stuff.
Where to find war horse, dapper black throughbred, black chestnut thoroughbred?
If it’s the fancy horses you’re worried about, you’ll be able to get them during the story mission where you go to the stables for the first time. Look at the bottom of the list, and you’ll see horses that don’t have a price – the Thoroughbreds and the Ardennes. The former is the deluxe or ultimate edition race horse, while the latter is the War Horse you get for preordering.
How to get Nuevo Paraiso gunslinger, Blackrose Bounty hunter, Copperhead Enforcer outfit?
If it’s the exclusive clothes you’re looking for, you’ll find them at the same place all clothes are – in your wardrobe. Once you’ve set up camp, look for Arthur’s tent. It’s the one with the barrel and mirror in front, where you can shave. Look for a trunk inside, next to the bed. When you interact with it, you’ll be able to change clothes – this is where you can first get your preorder or special edition bonus outfit.
Where to find special edition talisman in RDR2?
The talisman can be found at the same place as your outfits – the wardrobe at the camp. It’s the trunk at the foot of the bed in Arthur’s tent. Once you select the option to choose clothes, scroll all the way down. You’ll find talismans at the end of the list, and the Eagle Eye Talisman will be there from the start.
