Red Dead Online can share many similarities with its single-player counterpart, but its backup system differs greatly. Because you play Red Dead Online on an online server, you can not manually record your progress.
Instead, Red Dead Online will be automatically saved once you have completed an activity. We recommend waiting about a minute after adding an item to your inventory or completing an activity before jumping into Red Dead Online. Try not to give up a game during a mission if you can.
If you give up during an activity, Red Dead Online must restart you at a checkpoint. For example, an IGN publisher left Red Dead Online while choosing an outfit for his character during the introductory mission. When she reconnected to Red Dead Online, she began with the wardrobe selection, but was seen offering different wardrobe options.
