Red Dead Redemption 2 War Horse Pre-Order Bonus - How to get

The Warhorse pre-order bonus in RDR2 is one of several bonuses in Red Dead Redemption 2 you can get for pre-ordering. However, you can’t get the RDR 2 War Horse pre-order bonus mount immediately after starting the game. In fact, you’ll have to wait until Chapter 2, and go to a specific location to pick up your onus mount. With that being the case, here’s out Red Dead Redemption 2 Where to Find War Horse guide to help you find it.

RDR2 War Horse Pre-Order Bonus – How to get & where to find?

To get the War Horse pre-order bonus in Red Dead Redemption 2, you’ll have to take the quest “Exit Pursued by a Bruised Ego” from Hosea. In order to get to this quest, though, you’ll first have to complete the first chapter. Basically, you’ll have to get out of the snow before you get the RDR 2 War Horse. Once you get to the point when you and your gang have established a camp, at the start of Chapter 2, you can then talk to Hosea and pick up the quest.

In the “Exit Pursued by a Bruised Ego” quest, Hosea will ask you to ride his horse to town and help him sell it. Follow Hosea to the town; specifically, he’ll take you to Amos Levi Blacksmith & Farrier. Ride the horse into the store to trigger a dialogue cutscene with the shopkeeper. After that, you’ll be able to buy a horse from the store. There are three horses that you have to pay for, and two that are free. The first one is a black Thoroughbred with a cool mark on the forehead. The second one is Ardennes, which is a gray War Horse. All you have to do is take the horse, and start the bonding process.

Speaking of horses, our Red Dead Redemption 2 How to Revive Your Horse guide will show you how to bring your horse back from the brink of death. If, on the other hand, you need help with something else in RDR 2, you can check out some of our other guides for the game, including Red Dead Redemption 2 Legendary Animal Locations, Red Dead Redemption 2 Shacks Locations, and more.

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 entered the code after I did that quest and there isn’t a warhorse in the stable. Am I screwed?
