This guide will tell you how to enable an autopilot, which will help us to travel around the map.
Enable Autopilot Guide
What's an Autopilot
The map in Red Dead: Online is huge and very diverse. Initially we will be fascinated, but when we travel it several times (e.g. while doing a collector), a ride between distant locations will become tedious. Rockstar, however, allows us to use a kind of autopilot, which will 'drive us' to the designated place on the map.
How to Enable It
Very easily! Just stand on the road and sit motionless on a horse. Turn on the map (M key by default) and mark the point where we want to go.
Now hold the camera view change key (V key by default)...
And press / hold the sprint key (SHIFT key by default). The horse should follow the marked path until we reach our destination. During our trip we can add more markers on the map or go to kitchen to make a tea.
While traveling by this way, a horse can throw us off when it get scared of a predator or collides with passing NPCs. Then our character will not get on a horse automatically and will not continue the journey. We will just stay in the place of accident. We must also ensure that the game won't kick us due to inactivity (after 15 minutes).
