It looks like this week in Red Dead Online is a good time to be a hired gun. There’s a lot of work out there and they’re all paying extra. Players who finish Legendary and Infamous Bounty Missions get 2X RDO$. The reward is given whether the targets are alive or dead.

Giving out Double RDO$ and XP are Free Roam Missions. Meanwhile, those who can complete any Free Roam Mission as part of a Posse get an additional 10% XP. This is also the same for any Free Roam Event or Bounty Mission.

For this week as well, Prestigious Bounty Hunters of at least Rank 30 receive an offer for 40% off a Stable Stall and two rewards for 2,000 Character XP apiece. If you find these rewards enticing, then maybe get a Prestigious Bounty Hunter License. Bounty Hunters simply need to finish any three Legendary Bounties and get an offer of five Gold Bars off the cost of that license.

Still on the Bounty Hunter, the License for this profession is being offered at five Gold Bars, which is usually at 15 Gold Bars. Helping you get those bounties is the Reinforced Lasso, offered at 50% off.

Now when players hold Low Honor at any time during this week’s event, they get the Black Gathered Bandana for free. This should help them disguise and move freely during the day. Speaking of moving freely, all Fast Travel Fees, as well as Persistent Posse Setup Fees, are waived for this week.


While this week is indeed mainly about Bounty Hunters, there are still things other professions can enjoy. In fact, all other Role Outfits are offered at a 30% discount.

Other discounts offered this week are:

  • Pistols (40% off)
  • Wilderness Outfitters (40% off)
  • War Horses (30% off)
  • Tonics (30% off)
    • These include those being sold by Harriet Davenport.

Prime Gaming

This week, Prime Gaming rewards are also rather lean like last week. Members get a reward for a free Emote. They also receive offers for 30% off the Bar Expansion and a Novice or Promising Moonshiner Item of their choice.

So what do you think? Are you happy with this week’s update for Red Dead Online?
