This Red Dead Redemption 2 guide explains how to unlock the Ardennes War Horse, Nuevo Paraiso, Thoroughbred, Volcanic Pistol and Varmint Rifle.

If you arranged for a pre-order of Red Dead Redemption 2 - or picked up one of the special editions - then you'll likely want to know how you go about redeeming some of the bonus items that you received as part of the pre-launch promotion.

In this quick guide, we're outlining how to redeem or unlock every single pre-order and special edition item in clear, brief terms, so you can get stuck straight into using them. Don't worry if you've installed the game or made a save. You can redeem your codes at any point and then pick the goodies up in-game.

How to unlock Ardennes War Horse

  • Redeem your pre-order code in your PlayStation or Xbox account
  • Install Red Dead Redemption 2

  • Talk to the stable owner to purchase a horse, and the Ardennes War Horse will be available for free

How to unlock the Nuevao Paraiso Gunslinger Outfit

  • Redeem your pre-order code in your PlayStation or Xbox account
