Bounty Hunter License Now Available in Red Dead Online

The Prestigious Bounty Hunter License is now available in Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Online.

For those wishing to hunt down some targets, the Bounty Hunting Role in Red Dead Online promises plenty of action. The Prestigious Bounty Hunter License brings with it 10 new Ranks of progression atop the 20 from the Bounty Hunter Role Ranks. In addition, players will be able to pursue high level items and skills, new horses and weapon variants, Infamous Bounty targets on the Bounty Boards, and more.

This license can be purchased from any Bounty Board by anyone who holds a Bounty Hunter License. Those that reach Bounty Hunter Rank 30 will be able to continue their search for Bounty Hunter XP, which can then be traded for Gold and RDO$. Newcomers will be able to take five Gold Bars off the license to get started on the Specialist Role, while veteran Bounty Hunters can take 40% off Bounty Hunter items (up to Rank 20). To get players in the spirit, all Bounty Hunter missions in Red Dead Online will dish out double XP all this week, and players can earn increased RDO$ and XP payouts in Free Roam and Bounty Missions and Free Roam Events through December 7.

For those itching for a new target, the Legendary Bounty Gene “Beau” Finley and his gang can now be pursued in Red Dead Online. Sporting an extravagant tailored suit, this dandy was last spotted at a dilapidated colonial property in Bayou Nwa. Be warned though; his gang is potentially harboring captives.

In addition to the Bounty Hunter License, a new Outlaw Pass has also made its way to Red Dead Online. This pass contains new emotes, outfits, camp upgrades, and more. Chosen photographs from last month’s Naturalist Challenge are also now available as free Camp Flags, Moonshine Bar Photos, and Photo Studio Backgrounds.

Those that upgrade to the Outlaw Pass for 40 Gold Bars can get themselves new rewards, which includes warm clothing, advanced photography enhancements, new satchel and skill pamphlets, special gifts, bonus cash and 30 Gold Bars. All players who currently possess the Outlaw Pass No. 4 will be able to get themselves RDO$400 this week, along with a 10 Gold Bar rebate within 72 hours of purchase.

A number of improvements and additions will also make their way to Red Dead Online this week. These tweaks include the ability to combine stubble with beard styles and use the Advanced Camera while on horseback. The Bounty Hunters among us will also be able to utilize a new Gunspinning Management option in the Player Menu, which will allow them to select and swap previously learned Gunspinning tricks.

New players will be able to get themselves double the usual XP for all A Land of Opportunities missions, while all Red Dead Online players can get themselves Rewards for 2,000 Club XP and 2,000 Bounty Hunter XP. Note that those Rank 5 or above will get a Treasure Map, while those Rank 10 or above will get a free Ability Card Upgrade of their choosing.
