Red Dead Redemption 2 Camp Upgrades - How to Upgrade Your Camp in Red Dead Redemption 2

This is our guide on how to upgrade the camp in Red Dead Redemption 2, so you can provide your companions with some nice surroundings.

You'll want to make life in your camp as laid back as possible in Red Dead Redemption 2, to give all your companions a safe haven from the law. In this Red Dead Redemption 2 camp upgrades guide, we'll be walking you through a full list of all the upgrades available to you through the ledger, outlining how you can put your money to good use.

If you instead need anything else at all relating to Rockstar’s wild west prequel, you’ll want to head over to our Red Dead Redemption 2 guides hub. It’s on this main page that you can find a complete beginner’s guide to the game, as well as tips and tricks, and much more.

How to Upgrade Your Camp in Red Dead Redemption 2

Firstly, you’ll need to know how to upgrade your camp in Red Dead Redemption 2. You can donate your own money to your camp through the ledger, marked by the dollar sign in a briefcase on the mini-map, and you can then use the ledger, which is right next to it, to make upgrades using the money you’ve accumulated.

Dutch’s Tent Upgrades in RDR2

The only specific RDR2 camp upgrade you can purchase for Dutch’s Tent in Red Dead Redemption 2 is called ‘First Thing’s First’, and costs $220. This is actually one of the better upgrades to purchase once you’ve saved up a bit of cash, as it boosts camp morale, causing members to work harder and donate more money.
