Last time, Red Dead Online said that they're going to release an update for Bounty Hunters. They didn’t lie and it’s finally here. It all starts with the new Prestigious Bounty Hunter License.

This latest addition to the game introduces 10 new Ranks on top of the existing 20 Ranks. That means new high-level items and new skills to obtain. There are also new weapon variants and horses. Bounty Hunters too will get the chance to hunt Infamous Bounty targets on the Bounty Boards. That’s not all. Players who reach Bounty Hunter Rank 30 can continue to accumulate those Bounty Hunter XP. Why? Because they can be traded in the Awards Menu. Not only for RDO$, but even Gold.

The Prestigious Bounty Hunter License is available for those who already carry a Bounty Hunter License. It can be bought from any of the Bounty Board. Those who want to try out this Specialist Role can buy the Bounty Hunter License for 5 Gold Bars off. There’s also a 40% off on Bounty Hunter items for up to Rank 20.

New Bounty

For Bounty Hunters, those with the Prestigious Bounty Hunter License should keep an eye out for the Local Bounty Boards. In particular, look for Gene “Beau” Finley and his gang, who are all wanted for a series of robberies.

Beau is the head of the group known for bank robberies across the south. What makes him stand out from the rest is his habit of wearing an extravagant tailored suit. Bounty Hunters need to bring this one to justice as soon as they can. Reports said that the group appears to occupy some dilapidated colonial property out in Bayou Nwa. The gang may be harboring captives and specific predatory species.

New Outlaw Pass

The new update introduces Outlaw Pass No. 4. Get the chance to grab some new outfits, emotes, and even camp upgrades. Meanwhile, the chosen photographs from The Naturalist Challenge are now offered as free Camp Flags, Moonshine Bar Photos, and Photo Studio Backgrounds. All these are available through the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club.

Players can upgrade to Outlaw Pass for 40 Gold Bars. In return, they get a wide range of rewards, such as:

  • luxurious warm clothing suitable for cold weather
  • new satchel and skill pamphlets
  • advanced photography enhancements
  • bonus cash
  • 30 Gold Bars
  • special gifts

Additionally, those who have the Outlaw Pass No. 4 get RDO$400 and 10 Gold Bar this week.

Other Goodies

The update contains various additions and improvements as well. For example, players can now combine stubble with beard styles. They may also use the Advanced Camera while on horseback.

As an update for Bounty Hunters, there’s a little something exclusive for them. They can now use the new Gunspinning Management option in the Player Menu to select and swap learned Gunspinning tricks. What else you ask? All Bounty Hunter missions are handing out double XP. While those who can bring their posse get higher RDO$ and XP payouts in both Free Roam and Bounty Missions.

New players too can take advantage of the double XP offered in A Land of Opportunities missions. Don’t forget to get revenge on Teddy Brown at Fort Mercer in “Kill Them, Each and Every One.” Players can even serve as a companion to Mrs. LeClerk when she goes to Blackwater to meet with Amos Lancing in “Destroyed by Grief.” Completing each mission earns players a bonus RDO$100.

All players will receive 2,000 Club XP and 2,000 Bounty Hunter XP this week. Players of at least Rank 5 will get a Treasure Map. Those at least Rank 10 will have a free Ability Card Upgrade of their choice.
