Red Dead Online Weekly Update Gives Extra Cash, XP For Bounty Hunters

It's a good week to be a Bounty Hunter thanks to extra rewards and some specialized discounts for outlaw-hunters.


It's a good time to be a bounty hunter in Red Dead Online, as this week's update focuses on the gunslingers who bring in outlaws dead or alive. You can earn extra role XP and RDO$ by hunting down some notorious criminals, while also claiming some discounts.

This week you'll get double role XP on Legendary Bounties and double RDO$ on Prestigious Legendary Bounties. In particular, those Prestigious targets include Gene "Beau" Finley, Carmela "La Muñeca" Montez, and Virgil "Shepherd" Edwards. You can also claim 50% RDO$ bonus on the original 10 Legendary bounties.

No matter what your role, jumping into Red Dead Online this week will grant you a 1,000 Bounty Hunter XP reward, and 100 rounds of Express Repeater ammo.

If you're looking for a use for all that cash, you can take advantage of some discounts this week as well, especially for bounty hunter gear. You can get 50% off bounty hunter outfits and emotes, and 30% off bounty hunter weapon variants, wagon tints, accessories, saddles, gun belts, and off-hand holsters, along with 30% off the Schofield revolver, bolt-action rifle, and repeaters. Plus the Bounty Hunter License and Prestigious Bounty Hunter License are 5 Gold Bars off. These discounts will be available through January 18.

Red Dead Online launched as the online mode for Red Dead Redemption 2, but Rockstar recently broke it out into a standalone game. To begin the new year, the studio let players reset their honor to a neutral state, so they can approach this year as more of a goody-two-boots or a scumbag.
