Red Dead Redemption II: All Companion Item Requests Guide

When visiting your camp in Red Dead Redemption 2, your companions will often ask you to bring them various items in exchange for rewards.

These mini-quests or side-missions are known as Item Requests and will give you a chance to interact with Dutch’s gang members and find additional details about them.

Completing the Red Dead Redemption 2 Item Requests will sometimes take only a few minutes, especially if you already have the requested items.

While these side-missions are not mandatory; if you truly want to find more about your companions, it is a good idea to help them whenever you can.

Unlike the Companion Activities, the Item Requests can only be triggered at specific times of the day, or while performing particular activities in your camp.

Furthermore, they are time sensitive, meaning that you will be able to activate them during specific chapters and at specific locations.
