Red Dead Redemption 2: Find the Lantern – How It Works

RDR2 Lantern

An actual standard object in Red Dead Redemption 2 can cause you a headache! Where can I find the lantern in the game?

Yes, it sounds a bit confusing, but it is a fact that many players have problems finding the lantern, we had the same problem.

The lantern should, according to Rockstar, be available from the beginning. You only have to hold the weapon wheel with L1 (PS4) / LB (XBox), then select the knife. Did you select the knife you have to (continue in the weapon wheel) go to the knife and press R2. Then the lantern should be available!

Now many players tried, it did not work! After asking a few questions, we examined it. If you can not find the lantern on the above path, get in line with your horse so you can open the horse inventory (does not open it). Then repeat the steps as described above, now you should have activated the lamp in Red Dead Redemption 2.

For a better understanding, we have made a short video about it.

An overview of all trophy guides can be found right here, and we also have a complete RDR2 Wiki.

    To switch hands, equip the lantern, then equip the right handgun. The lantern should remain in your left after holstering the weapon, but you might want to hang onto that shootin’ iron, if you’re hunting a cougar in a cavern.

    I followed your instructions to the letter and there is no lantern after selecting the knife and selecting R2 it takes me to a second wheel which contains a bandana and binoculars but no lantern

      Hey dude, you gotta hold the stick over the knife while pressing R2 not just highlighting the knife for a second then pressing R2 afterwards. Same time okay. Good luck
