Red Dead Online is the multiplayer component of Red Dead Redemption 2, and this week, players are set to get some extra rewards just for playing the game. You can expect a range of tonics in a care package, the return of some much-loved clothing items, and an increased RDO$ and Gold payout.
A Red Dead Online care package is set to be delivered to your camp’s Lockbox or nearest Post Office this week and includes a selection of Potent Tonics. These include Potent Miracle Tonic, Potent Snake Oil, Potent Health Cure, and Potent Bitters.
There is also a boost to RDO$. All Showdown modes, Races, and Gun Rush will reward 1.5X the RDO$ and Gold. This includes Plunder, Target Races, Up In Smoke, and Spoils of War modes. You can also gain 1.5X Gold in A Land of Opportunities Missions and all Free Roam Events and Missions.
Plunder is a new mode in Red Dead Online that was released earlier this month. It involves teaming up to capture and keep supplies from a central location. You can hoard, hide, and plunder loot from other players, fighting to gain the most. You also need to use cunning and teamwork since you are visible to all players when you're holding supplies, including those looking to plunder from you.
This is also a good time to stock up on ammo. There is a 25% discount on all ammunition as well as a temporary lift of all ammo rank requirements.
Finally, Red Dead Online is seeing the return of some favorite garments. Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue is now stocked with Gator Hat, Ortega Vest, Hitched Skirt (female), Morning Tail Coat, Strickland Boots, Furred Gloves, and Concho Pants.
You can find full details on Rockstar's website, although it does not mention an end date, so if you want to take advantage of these offers, now is the time to do so.
Red Dead Online is currently in beta mode and is available to play for free to all players who own Red Dead Redemption 2, although it does feature microtransactions.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
