Red Dead Online Bounty Hunter Role Getting Expanded Alongside Standalone Update

Bounty Hunters in Red Dead Online will get more bounties to hunt, as Rockstar will significantly expand the role when it updates with its standalone version on December 1.


Red Dead Online, the multiplayer component of Red Dead Redemption 2, is getting a significant expansion to the Bounty Hunter class. Starting on December 1, you'll have loads of new outlaws to track down.

Rockstar announced that the update will intorduce 10 more Bounty Hunter ranks, new Legendary Bounties, and a 100 Rank Outlaw Pass to fill out. You'll be able to earn new Prestigious level equipment by tracking down the new slew of criminals and reprobates.

In preparation for the big Bounty Hunter expansion, all Bounty Hunter missions will earn double XP this week. That should help you catch up with the role. You can get started by finding Jessica LeClerk and Horley. You can also join up with your friends in a Posse to get out increased RDO$ and XP for any Free Roam events, on top of the Bounties.

Red Dead Online is launching a standalone version on December 1 as well, which will cost $20. You can get in at a discount by adopting early, though--through February 15, 2021, it will be 75% off for a grand total of only $5. You'll need a subscription to PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold to play online through their respective consoles. Red Dead Online will also offer a purchase option to upgrade it with the Red Dead Redemption 2: Story Mode, which includes the single-player campaign.

You can also claim some rewards by linking your Rockstar Games Social Club account to your Prime Gaming account. Those include 5 free Legendary Animal Pheromones, 6,000 Naturalist XP, a Wilderness Camp, and a Katata Coat crafted from the Legendary Katata Elk.
