It looks like February is going to be good for Traders in Red Dead Online. That's because they're receiving a lot of bonuses for the entire month. For example, there's the 10 Predator Bait that they can get by simply playing the game.

Traders should also be happy to know that there's been an increase in the demand for furs. As a result, trappers and merchants are paying out an additional 50% RDO$ bonus for all Pelts delivered. In addition, Pelts turned in as Materials to Cripps also have increased value.

What else? Experienced Traders who decide to band together to protect goods from attackers in the Trade Route Free Roam Event get 2X Character and Role XP. By the way, all Trader Sales completed for the entire month pay twice as much RDO$.

  • February 1 to February 7: Hardcore Elimination Series
