Legendary Rockstar games developed it. It’s an action-packed adventure game released in the year 2018. In the Dead reading series, the game is the prequel to Red Dead Redemption, which was released earlier in 2010.

No one could comprehend the masterpiece of this game. From its characters to background voices of singing birds, everything connects you to nature. And make you forget whether this is all in-game or is it real. The game is jam tight with tiny details, which at first instance, even after noticing it won’t feel much helpful. One such thing which comes in handy is and is of immense use in Red Dead Redemption 2 Old Brass Compass, and if you are unaware of where to find it, this article is dedicated to you.

What is Red Dead Redemption 2 Old Brass Compass?

A Red Dead Redemption 2 Old brass compass made up of Brass is a handy tool that can only be received once you have mailed all the ten rock carving locations to the post office. The real use is that it can be traded for Raven Claw Talisman, which is crafted by a Fence upon receiving. We need to provide this Talisman for Arthur to unlock further missions.

Old Brass Compass Post Office

You can get Old Brass Compass by completing a secret mission in chapter 2. After completing the delivery of all carvings from the “Geology for Beginners” mission to the post office, you’ll get an invitation to Francis Sinclair’s house in the same post office mail (Can also be seen in players status menu). He is located near West Elizabeth between the northwest Strawberry and northeast of Owanjila Dam.

Warning: Spoilers ahead. Don’t worry if you are so in playing all by yourself then also this article won’t ruin your experience. We would only be telling you some of the most vulnerable positions for the Compass to be and the way to reach there, along with a few stranger’s names to aid your search.

Geology for Beginners Mission RDR2

The Red Dead Redemption 2 Old Brass Compass comes to you as a reward. One can earn from completing a very particular stranger’s mission. The mission can be taken a right in chapter 2 when you reach the Horseshoe Overlook in the story. You have to look for a stranger named Francis Sinclair, who can be found in his home in West Elizabeth. It’s situated Northwest of Strawberry and Northeast of the Owanjila Dam.

After finishing off your conversation, start the Geology for Beginners mission. This pursuit will assign you to go out and to look out for ten rock carvings. After spotting them, you have to once again send the delivery to the post office. Pro-tip to avoid time and energy, you could first spot all ten rock carving coordinates at a time and then deliver all to the post office in one go.

How to use Red Dead Redemption 2 Old Brass Compass?

After all that hectic work, the game might leave you wondering what one can do with the Red Dead Redemption 2 Old Brass Compass. To answer your question, it’s a crafting tool from which you are supposed to make a Raven Claw Talisman for Arthur. But the twist is it doesn’t come for free. Take Compass to the Fence and spend 29$ before you could craft out a talisman from it. Having talisman in inventory means a 20% reduction in weapon degradation. You can open your Player inventory and look up its statistics.

Final Words

Once you have finished finding all the carvings’ coordinates, you are supposed to make one last final trip to the post office to deliver all the coordinates. After all that hard work, you need to sleep or do anything else for a full one day before you can collect your mail in return. Once you pass your day, ideally, you’ll receive a notification to pick up some of the mail from the post office, including an invitation from Francis Sinclair.

Go back to the point where you picked up the quest at the beginning of the game. A short recap scene will start playing and will end, leaving you without the Compass. You need to enter the house right in front of you and grab your Compass kept on the table, or you will leave it entirely.
