The frontier is a place both unloving and cold. However, every now and then, there are signs of charity and kindness. This week in Red Dead Online, players are being invited to explore the region and discover more. That’s because Free Roam Missions are giving out double the usual XP.

That’s not all as Free Roam Events are also handing out players with double XP for the entire week. So be on the lookout for invites, which can be found at the top left of the screen. Challenges, both cooperative and competitive, include Cold Dead, Fool’s Gold, and King of the Castle.

Speaking of Free Roam Missions, there are times when it’s good to finish them with friends. For the entire week, finishing Free Roam Missions with a Posse gives an extra 40% RDO$ and XP bonus. Take note that this is on top of the 10% Posse bonus already given.

It’s also a bit easier to travel and roam this week since Fast Travel is free. Plus, players can enjoy roaming while looking good since Barbers are offering their services for free, all services for hair, makeup, and even cosmetic dentistry.

Other bonuses are offered as well in this week’s update. Players who increased their rank within the week get:

  • Gain one Rank and get:
    • Bluewater Marsh Treasure Map
  • Gain three Ranks and get:
    • North Ridgewood Treasure Map
    • Free Ability Card
  • Gain six Ranks and get:
    • Lake Isabella Treasure Map
    • Two free Ability Cards
