Red Dead Online players are being asked to make sure that Senator Ricard won’t get any more glory. To make that happen, they need to steal Ember of the East, which is said to be hidden somewhere in Annesburg. There’s also an added incentive this week since success means 2X RDO$ and XP.

For those not sure how to go about it, the game has you covered. Take the time to read some of the tips here.

Handing out double rewards as well are The Bluewater Contract and The Cornwall Contract. That’s not all as players who can complete any of the Blood Money Contracts within the week get a free Vest and 2,000 Character XP. Speaking of Contracts, players could stumble on extra Capitale in chests and even in the pockets of targets.

Extra Capitale

For this week, all players get bonus Capitale based on their recorded Rank at the end of September 27. The amounts are:

  • Rank 5 and below: 10 Capitale
  • Rank 6 to Rank 50: 15 Capitale
  • Rank 51 and above: 20 Capitale

What else is happening this week? On top of the usual bonus, all Posse Members get an additional 20% XP Boost. This is valid for group activities that include:

  • Blood Money Missions
  • Free Roam Missions
  • Free Roam Events
  • Bounty Missions

Before we forget, Fast Travel is free for the entire week.
