Can you survive the enemies coming at you? Rockstar Games

Red Dead Online this week is issuing a Call to Arms for everyone. Players are asked to protect different locations from as many as 10 waves of incoming enemies. Locations include Blackwater, Fort Mercer, MacFarlane’s Ranch, Strawberry, and Valentine.

If you’re interested, head over to your Camp Lockbox and look for a Telegram from a certain “J.” Call to Arms should be available anytime by choosing that Telegram. Those who can successfully defend against the waves of enemies get 3X RDO$, XP, and Gold. They also get an offer for 30% off any Novice or Promising Role Item.

Cornwall Contract

Stories in some areas say that the name of Leviticus Cornwall is synonymous with prosperity. However, his deep pockets have resulted in him being the target of a lot of undesirables. The Cornwall Contract offers players a series of Crimes that target this rather notorious magnate. Players are asked to cause a distraction to infiltrate Cornwall Kerosene & Tar and then get those Capitale notes.

Players need to sneak in the Saint Denis dock to get their hands on the Capitale. Be prepared, however, to get your hands dirty.

Quick Draw Club

This week marks the start of The Quick Draw Club No. 2, the second in a series of passes. This one is offered until September 6. For those who decide to get this pass, they can rank up and recoup their investment by going through all 25 ranks.

For those who already have the first pass and buy the second one within the next two weeks, they get RDO$300 and 2,000 Character XP within 72 hours.

New Outfit

This week, Madam Nazar is offering The Clelland Outfit for sale. This is the same outfit said to be worn by legendary outlaw John Marston. It’s being sold alongside the Rafferty Eyepatch.

In addition, all players who log in this week get an Ability Card and 10X Gun Oil for free.

Blood Money Bonuses

While committing Crimes, don’t forget to keep your eyes on lockboxes and stashes. Inside are more Capitale. Players who visit all four Blood Money mission-givers get an additional RDO$100.


For this week, the Moonshine Shack is available at five Gold Bars less. Other discounts offered are:

  • Moonshine Shack Upgrades (40% off)
  • Bar Photographs (40% off)
