In Red Dead Redemption 2, you might struggle to make sense of the game at first, including the satchel. You use the satchel for storage, but it also runs out of space quickly. Therefore, you’ll have to upgrade it to carry more items.

How to Open you Satchel in RDR2

Accessing your inventory is essential, as you must loot to survive in RDR2. We’ll also cover some upgrades that could prove helpful for keeping your items close at hand. Keep on reading, and you’ll bring out the best of your satchel in no time.

How to Open Your Satchel

You have a satchel at the start of the game. Initially, your storage space is limited, and you have to choose what to loot. What’s more, the number of items you can carry also depends on if you purchased the upgrades for its category.

For players on console, follow these steps to open the satchel:

  1. Make sure you’re not standing near your horse.
  2. Press and hold the right button on your controller’s D-pad.
  3. You’ll gain access to your satchel immediately.

PC players can open their inventory using this method:

  1. Stand away from your horse.
  2. Press the “B” key on your keyboard.
  3. Your inventory will be available immediately.

Getting Satchel Upgrades

You might struggle to loot as you wish when you’re in the earlier stages of the game. However, there are ways to expand your bag. You need to return to camp and talk to Mr. Pearson, who can create the various upgrades you need.

Every upgrade requires you to bring three types of “perfect” animal pelts, and you must also unlock Mr. Pearson’s tools for your camp.

Once you get the necessary materials, talk to Mr. Pearson. He’ll give you the upgrade after.
