For the past two weeks, Red Dead Online has been releasing what could be described as a lean update. Not that a lot of players are complaining mainly due to the excellent deals offered. During the last week of December, there were holiday deals. And after that, some good deals as well welcomed the new year.

It looks like this time, we’re back to the updates and with the launch of the Bounty Hunter Week. It's not a surprise considering that it was a month ago when the game released the Bounty Hunter update. You can read more about that here.

So, what’s happening this week? All Legendary Bounties are going to earn Double Role XP for the entire week. There’s even the Double RDO$ on all the Prestigious Legendary Bounties that include Gene “Beau” Finley, Carmela “La Muñeca” Montez, and Virgil “Shepherd” Edwards. You can learn more about Shepherd here and La Muñeca here.

That’s not all as Bounty Hunters also get a 50% RDO$ bonus when catching the original 10 Legendary Bounty targets. Not a bad week indeed.

What about those who haven’t taken the role of Bounty Hunter? Not to worry since all players playing this week receive not only a Reward that’s good for 1,000 Bounty Hunter XP but also 100 rounds of Express Repeater Ammo.
