Earn Weapons in GTA Online and Use Them in Red Dead Redemption 2

By Ashley Woodcock, 5 months ago
You can arm yourself with a couple of special weapons in Red Dead Redemption 2 before the game is even out thanks to a couple of new challenges that have been added to the online world of Grand Theft Auto V. Players can earn the Stone Hatchet and a Double-Action Revolver in GTA: Online and use the Stone Hatchet in both Red Dead Redemption 2 and GTA: Online.


All you need to do is keep an eye on your in-game phone for a text message from Maude regarding bounties. The new bounty targets will need to be collected dead or alive in order for you to complete the new challenge and unlock the location of the Stone Hatchet in the game. Once you find the weapon, a new Kills Challenge will be presented. Complete this challenge to earn GTA$250,000 and to unlock the weapon for use in Red Dead Redemption 2.

As for the Double-Action Revolver, players will need to pay attention to their iFruit for an email from vanderlinde@eyefind.com. This email will lead you on a treasure hunt to find the weapon. Once found, a Headshot Challenge will become available. Complete the challenge to bag GTA$250,000 and to unlock the Revolver in RDR2 for future gun-busting fun.

Pre-order the game via the Microsoft Store and you will be rewarded with bonus GTA$ and "a slew of story mode and online content". If you pre-order before August 15th, you will also receive the Treasure Map for RDR2's story mode.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is scheduled to release on the Xbox One on October 26th.
