Red Dead Redemption 2 has a Manual Save function. This guide will explain how RDR2’s save system works:
To make a manual save:
- Open Pause Menu
- Click on Story
- Save Game
You have 15 manual save slots. It’s highly recommended you keep a save from the start and end of every chapter. You can also replay story missions at any time in the Pause Menu under ‘Progress’.
By default, the game creates an auto-save at certain checkpoints. Beware though that quitting the game during a mission usually makes you replay the entire mission from scratch. Especially during chapter transitions you don’t want to make this mistake. Sometimes when a new chapter starts it puts you in a new main mission right away and doesn’t make an auto-save. Always play until you can make a manual save just to make sure nothing gets lost.
And that’s all there is to know about saving the game in Red Dead Redemption 2. For more guides check out our full Red Dead Redemption 2 Wiki & Strategy Guide.
