New Red Dead Online Showdown Mode Turns Players Into Bounty Hunters Or Public Enemies

Red Dead Redemption 2’s online mode has introduced another update with new events for players to partake in, including a new Public Enemy mode, the Railroad Baron event, a new Bellerose Hat, and more.

The Showdown Mode turns players into bounty hunters or public enemies in an exciting match. Two teams have a designated player labeled as a public enemy, which rotates regularly among all teammates. Points are awarded for killing the opposing team’s enemy, but every kill they make in the process is a point for the other side.

The new mode is going to require a bit of strategizing in order to take down the opposing team. Uncoordinated players who run in may only succeed in giving the other team free points. Make sure to keep your eyes on the target.

Red Dead Online is also adding a Railroad Baron Free Roam Event. Players are invited to ride the rails and capture as many cars as they can in this play on King of the Castle. Fight to maintain possession of the train cars for the longest amount of time to claim victory.

A new cosmetic item has arrived as well, and all Red Dead Online players who log in this week will receive a unique tint of the new Bellerose Hat free of charge. Additional styles can be purchased from the Wheeler, Rawson and Co. catalogue, along with a new Flores Vest and remaining supplies of the Calhoun Boots, Raccoon Hat, and Schaffer Chaps.

There is a 35% discount on all provisions, which means that now is a great time to stock up and explore. Camps can also be customized with a new flag, theme, or an upgraded tent that recharges your cores more quickly if you rest with 25% off all Wilderness Outfitters' offerings. You can talk to Cripps for more details.

Rockstar Games has continued to keep Red Dead Online alive with new updates. Now that it is out of beta, players are free to try out various playstyles. Many are enjoying the ability to hunt peacefully without the threat of player-vs-player combat, while others are benefiting from the ability to engage in fights with fellow online players.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
