Get to learn more about the frontier and earn bonuses. Rockstar Games

This month in Red Dead Online, everyone has the chance to explore the frontier and enjoy bonuses that come with it. Free Roam Events for example are handing out 4X XP until April. That's not all since those who complete Free Roam Missions get to have their hands on 3X RDO$ and XP. By the way, it's easier to obtain these bonuses since Fast Travel Fees have been waived for the entire month.

Aside from getting 4X XP, players can also join any Free Roam Event and receive these rewards:

  • April 2 to April 8: A pair of red and orange Furred Gloves
  • April 9 to April 15: An Offer for 40% off an Ability Card Upgrade
  • April 16 to April 22: A pair of black Pelt Half Chaps
  • April 23 to April 29: 3 Fire Bottles and 3 Toxic Moonshine

Extra Rewards

Free Roam Events & Missions aren't the only ones handing out extra rewards. With Telegram Missions for example, players not only get that chance to test their skills but also earn 3X RDO$ and XP. For those who haven't yet tried it, simply collect the Telegrams over at the local Post Office or the Camp Lockbox and launch the missions. In addition, those who finish any A New Source of Employment Telegram Mission get to receive the North Tumbleweed Treasure Map.

Players can also talk to Jessica LeClerk and help her avenge her late husband in A Land of Opportunities missions and in return get 3X RDO$ and XP until April 29.

Speaking of help, players can also help defend vulnerable outposts and innocent citizens against the various waves of enemy forces in Call to Arms. This April it's offering 2X Gold and 2X Ability Card XP. Those able to make it to Wave 10 also receive the red and orange Ortega Vest.
