When at the frontier, it’s always important to talk the talk and walk the walk. However, it’s just as important to dress the part and this week in Red Dead Online is all about that. Making their return to the game is the Gator Hat along with other limited-time clothing. There’s also a new Showdown Series event plus the usual bonuses and discounts.

Let’s start with dressing the part. As already mentioned, the Gator Hat is making a comeback to the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Catalogue. Other clothing making a limited-time return include:

  • Squat Stovepipe Top Hat
  • Winter Shotgun Coat
  • Benbow Jacket
  • Ortega Vest
  • Tied Pants
  • Strickland Boots
  • Calhoun Boots
  • Vaquero Baroque Spurs

If you can’t take the time to try these items out this week, don’t worry as they are available until April 13. Hopefully that will be enough time for you to log on and get them.

Showdown Series

For the Showdown Series, this week introduces one that’s called Name Your Weapon. For this version, players are asked to show off just how good they are when it comes to wielding weapons. In this series, players get more points for using trickier weapons in killing their opponents. Get ready to try new and more volatile weapon loadouts while experiencing new point values and even more explosions. Locations for this Showdown Series are Fort Mercer, Heartlands Oil Field, and Tall Trees.

For the uninitiated, Showdown Series is a PvP multiplayer playlist offered by Red Dead Online. It is composed of different competitive modes that players can enjoy.


For this week, vigilantes going through unfriendly terrain on their quest for undesirables get 50% cash bonus on all Bounty payouts. This includes Legendary Bounties.
