Shooting from the passenger seat of a stagecoach.

Players can use several modes of transport in order to get Marston from place to place in Red Dead Redemption's game world.

List of Transportation

  • Horses - Marston can buy horses from sellers or try and tame one from the wild. Horses vary in strength, speed, stamina, and health. Horses are the most common mode of transportation used in Red Dead Redemption. Some horses have to be tamed in the wild before they can be bought.
  • Trains - Allows the player to quickly travel over long distances. Only available in Single Player. thumb|300px|right|Train at night
  • Stagecoaches - Stagecoaches are large enclosed carts, primarily used to transport people or valuable goods and are drawn by two or four horses. The player can drive the stagecoach, ride shotgun or ride as passenger. Additionally, they can be hired for transportation and given the option of sleeping, allowing the player to skip the ride and arrive at the desired destination instantly. However, when the stagecoach driver sees or hears any form of violence he will drive away. Passing the fifth Treasure Hunter challenge grants him a free ride.
    TIPS: If you are on the road and you try to shoot some animals or people, don’t worry about the road. Your horses will always stay on the road, if you still keep on target. You also can set a waypoint (Red Cross on the map). As long as you are in target mode, your carriage will move to that point. It works in Multiplayer-Mode too. It’s an easy way to kill marshals if they follow you; it does not work with a single horse.
  • Carts - Carts are drawn by one horse, and are typically used to carry goods and equipment rather than people. They are very fast but unstable, due to the fact that they can tip over, so be careful going over hills and other high landscape. Carts are also used for racing.
  • Wagons - Wagons are drawn by either two or four horses, and carry both goods and people. Wagons come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they appear in some single-player missions.thumb|300px|right|Stagecoach Multiplayer
  • Rafts - Rafts are rudimentary floating platforms, capable of navigating waterways. Rafts are a central component of at least one gameplay mission, and the vehicle cannot be used by the player outside of this mission. The raft is also used throughout "The River" co-op mission, included in the Outlaws To The End DLC.
  • Steamboats - Large river-going ships that carry passengers, supplies and goods. (Only appears in Exodus in America, the first mission, and not in-game).
  • Automobiles - Automobiles were extremely rare, but pervaded the west, challenging the ubiquity of the horse. They appear in missions, but the player does not control one at any point. An automobile can be seen parked in an alley in Blackwater, although it cannot be driven or stolen.
  • Mules - Can be found in Mexico. You may find them hitched in Chuparosa or Escalera. However, the player can not put hogtied personnel on them.
  • Camps - Allow fast travel to wherever the player chooses (Waypoint and towns e.g Armadillo) and allows the player to change outfit. Also if the player has the Improved Campsite it will refill their ammo.
  • Mine Carts - Used in the mission "Man is Born Unto Trouble" where John Marston must push one up a hill, and ride down the other side. Although this is not available for use outside of the mission, the minecart is also used on the online co-op mission, "Waltons Gold".
