In Red Dead Redemption 2 you can sleep to advance in-game time and save progress. You can do this at the following places:
- In your gang’s camp or hideout (only after reaching chapter 2). Arthur has his own tent in the gang hideout where he can rest.
- Make a camp in the wilderness. Anywhere outside a town open the weapon wheel, press R1/RB to switch to the items wheel and at the very bottom press R2/RT to switch between crafting tools and camp (this ability unlocks during chapter 2).
- Rent a Hotel Room in the towns Valentine or Strawberry. These are the only two places with hotels (the icon is shown on the map when you zoom in on those towns). It costs $1 to spend the night but you can also take a bath for $0.25. The room lets you change your outfit.
No matter where you go, you can sleep until morning, noon, or evening. You can only sleep two times in a row. After that there’s a cooldown period and it takes a few minutes (real time) before you can sleep again.
