It's a wonderful time to be a Moonshiner this week as Red Dead Online is not only offering XP bonuses, but also discounts. There are also some new rewards available along with the release of a new Showdown Series. Finally, we also look at the Rank-based Rewards that have been made available.

Beginning today, March 24, and all the way to March 30, all bootleggers get a 50% Role XP Boost. This is effective for all Moonshiner Sell, Bootlegger and Story Missions. Meanwhile all Moonshine Shack Properties are available for 10 Gold Bars less. In addition, both Norfolk Roadster Horses, as well as Band Expansions, get 40% off.

If you're excited about this one, but haven’t tried the Moonshiner Specialist Role, you need to reach at least Trader Rank 5 or finish one Trader Sell Mission. After that you should be able to have Cripps set you up with none other than the infamous bootlegger Maggie Fike over at the Emerald Ranch.

Other Bonuses

Fighting in the frontier doesn't mean that you just wear what you want. So for this week, outlaws that have enough fashion sense and have managed to fill all the seven Outfit Slots get Rewards. What's the reward? Well it's a Free Off-Hand Holster Below Rank 70 of the player's choice. That's not all as those who manage to finish any three Role challenges, regardless of the role, receive RDO$100 as Reward.
