Red Dead Redemption 2 Open Locked Doors and Windows

The Red Dead Redemption 2 open locked doors technique usually involves just shooting the lock clean off. This is quite a conspicuous way of dealing with a lock, as guns are actually quite loud. Another method of opening locked doors and boxes is to use the Red Dead Redemption 2 lock breaker, which will allow players to break locks without having to shoot them. However, there are other ways to open locks in Red Dead Redemption 2 that are just as efficient. Here’s a guide on how to get past locked doors in Red Dead Redemption 2 without shooting the locks or using the lock breaker.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Open Locked Doors – How to Get Past Them

The Red Dead Redemption 2 open locked doors techniques usually involve forking out a lot of cash for a lock breaker or going in guns blazing. There is a better solution that can get you in quietly and quickly without having to use the lock breaker. If you insist on using it, though, you can buy a lock breaker for around $25 from any Fence in the game. You can consult our Red Dead Redemption 2 lock breaker guide for more information.

So, about that other way in. Smashing a window is a little less conspicuous. It gives you a clean entry point so that you can get in and out quickly. Smash the window, climb through, loot everything in sight, and make a run for it.

While the lock breaker is technically the ideal method of breaking into houses, strongboxes, and stagecoaches, smashing the window is as outlaw-driven as you can get. You’ll alert no one and stay true to Arthur Morgan’s badass nature if you opt to use this happy compromise.

In the long run, obviously get a lock breaker, though. This is just a handy way to get past locked doors if you don’t have one yet.
