Red Dead Online May Update: Bring Criminals to Justice and Earn Bounty Hunter Rewards

Deliver justice and earn rewards. Rockstar Games

Bringing criminals to justice is considered as an admirable pursuit. This month in Red Dead Online, there's additional motivation to do just that. That's because Bounty Hunters get to bring home 2X RDO$, Gold, and XP on all Legendary Bounty Missions. In addition, fully licensed Prestigious Bounty Hunters can also take on Infamous Bounty Missions and get double pay.

Bounty Hunters who are at least level five get a care package containing 20 Poison Throwing Knives, 100 Express Repeater Ammo, and 100 Express Rifle Ammo. Those who manage to reach Low Honor this May get the Hush Your Mouth emote. Meanwhile, Bounty Hunters who have reached rank 30 can trade Role XP in for twice the usual weight in gold. They can exchange 1 Gold Bar for every 10,000 Bounty Hunter XP points instead of 50 Nuggets.

There are also these:

  • May 2 to May 8
    • Complete any 3 Bounties this week to receive the Bluewater Marsh Treasure Map
  • May 9 to May 15
    • Complete an Infamous Bounty this week to receive the white and black pair of Arkwright Gloves

For this month, Day of Reckoning and Manhunt Free Roam Events are handing out triple rewards. Plus, those who join and complete Day of Reckoning anytime this month get a silver and black Hollyfield Bloomers for Females or a pair of light blue Penstock Pants for Males.

Then, from May 23 to May 20, those able to finish a round of Manhunt can earn the silver and brown Palma Hat along with a reward to reset their Bounty.

Extra Rewards

There are other modes offering extra rewards this month. The first is Il Sovrano Blood Money Opportunity where players need to steal the prized yellow gemstone. Those who can successfully do it earn double rewards. Double rewards are also offered for Call to Arms. Both offers end May 29.


Here are some of the good offers for this month:

  • Prestigious Bounty Hunter's Lemat Revolver Weapon Variant (40% off)
  • Bounty Hunter Outfits (30% off)
  • Bounty Hunter Wagon (30% off)
