XP Boosts and Bonuses in Red Dead Online This Week


Take advantage of a number of XP boosts and bonuses that are making their way to Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Online this week.

For all the Traders, Bounty Hunters, and Collectors that roam the frontier, take advantage of 25% Character XP and Role XP boosts when they take on the following Role-specific Free Roam Events this week.

Scope out the list below:

  • DAY OF RECKONING – Compete against other Bounty Hunters to capture wanted targets and return them for points, with the more dangerous or difficult ones being worth more. (2-8 Players, Requires Bounty Hunter Rank 4)
  • MANHUNT – Bounty Hunters must work together to apprehend wanted targets across a designated area, many of which are defended by equally armed and dangerous henchmen. (2-12 Players, Requires Bounty Hunter Rank 4)
  • TRADE ROUTE – Here Traders get to show off their defensive skills as all participants must safeguard a train laden with goods from attacking bandits. (2-12 Players, Requires Trader Rank 4)
  • CONDOR EGG – A rare and valuable Condor Egg has been spotted in the area – find it before your opponents do to reap the benefits. (2-12 Players, Requires Collector Rank 4)
  • SALVAGE – A wreck has scattered valuable collectibles across the designated area. Find as many as you can but be careful as enemy bandits are also scouring the terrain and will attack to protect what they’ve found. (2-12 Players, Requires Collector Rank 4)

Note that there are also 2,000 Role XP bonuses for each of the Specialist Roles, which will be awarded in two 1,000 XP installments via the Offers & Rewards section.

This week’s Featured Free Aim Mode is Last Stand, which is a free-for-all with only one left standing. It will be available until January 20

This week’s Red Dead Online Benefits include 30% off the price of any Rifle available via local Gunsmiths or the Wheeler, Rawson and Co. Catalogue for all players, while PlayStation Plus members receive a free colorway of the Leavitt Jacket.

Finally, the Butcher Table, Bounty Hunter License and Collector’s Bag have been discounted by 5 Gold Bars. Note that the Collector’s Bag is still available free for players who connect their Social Club account with Twitch Prime – alongside the Polished Copper Moonshine Still upgrade and an additional 10% off Rifles.
