Halloween Events Planned for Red Dead Online


This week in Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Online, players will be able to hunt down two new legendary animals, take on the new Dead of Night Mode, and pick up the all-new Halloween Pass.

For those on the hunt, the spotted Nightwalker Panther hides in the vegetation and shadows of dusk south of Bolger Glade, while the albino Ghost Panther has been spotted hunting deer in Bluewater Marsh and the surrounding areas.

Those that bring the Nightwalker and Ghost Pelts to Gus’ Trapper Store will get themselves a nice payday, and will also unlock the corresponding Garment Sets for purchase.

A purchasable limited-time upgrade, Red Dead Online’s Halloween Pass features rewards across 20 ranks through November 16.

Scope out the full list of perks below:

  • The skeletal Zavala Machete
  • The petrifying Flayed Bison and colorful Painted Ram Horse Masks
  • Three Halloween-themed emotes: Frighten, Scared and The Ripper
  • Spooky Photo Studio Backgrounds like the Cemetery and Abandoned Mansion Backgrounds
  • Post-Apocalyptic and Predator filters for the Advanced Camera
  • A Gothic Décor Theme for your Moonshine Bar
  • The Gallows Blindfold
  • New Camp flags and more

Free and automatic membership to the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club will also provide rewards like the Phantom Buck Horse Mask and the Noir Advanced Camera filter.

All Halloween Pass Rewards up to your current Pass Rank carry over and unlock instantly once you purchase the Halloween Pass. Everything unlocked during the Halloween Pass season (now through November 16) is yours to keep after the Halloween Pass expires. Purchasing the Halloween Pass this week will also land you a Reward for a free weapon component of your choice.

In addition, players that meet up with Madam Nazar this week will notice that all of the Halloween Masks are back for a limited time. Those that grab one can get 10 Poison Throwing Knives and a Reward for a free Ability Card of your choosing. All those that have undertaken a Role will receive a Reward for 2,000 Club XP and an offer for 50% off a weapon from the Fence.
Keeping the Halloween spirit going, the new Dead of Night mode pits four teams in a fight for survival – both against The Dead and each other. Players earn points by taking out The Dead and rival players.

Those that nab a Night Stalker mask will be able to take on supernatural abilities and get themselves a competitive edge. Completing a Round of Dead of Night anytime over the next seven days will earn players 3X the usual payout, along with a care package of 3 Tomahawks, 10 Volatile Fire bottles, and 25 Incendiary Buckshot Slugs.

Those that harvest Harrietum Officinalis and purchase the Opossum Vitalism Studies Pamphlet will be able to complete a transformational journey of a different type. Players will also be able to take advantage of free Fast Travel through October 26.
Players can take advantage of the following suite of discounts this week:

  • 5 Gold Bars off the Bounty Hunter, Trader, Collector and Naturalist Roles
  • 10 Gold Bars off the Moonshiner Role
  • Free relocation of your Moonshine Shack
  • 40% off all Role Items
