Red Dead Online Beta Players Get a New Care Package

By Rebecca Smith,
This week's Red Dead Redemption 2 Online Beta update doesn't add a new mode to the list, but it does give players a new care package, new clothing, bonuses on some online modes, and discounts on ammo.

Online Beta Update 1/25

Players can access the new care package from any post office or their Camp's Lockbox. The package contains a range of Potent Tonics: three Potent Miracle Tonics, three Potent Snake Oils, three Potent Health Cures, and three Potent Bitters.

RDO$ and Gold bonuses arrive this week for all Showdown Modes, Races and Gun Rush. All of these modes will reward 1.5x RDO$ and Gold, including the newest modes Plunder, Target Races, Up In Smoke, and Spoils of War. In addition to those, players can get their hands on 1.5x Gold in A Land of Opportunities Missions, all Free Roam Missions, and all Free Roam Events.

Discounts are available on ammo. There's a 25% discount on all ammo for the suration of the week, and so all players can benefit from the discounts, the ammo rank requirements have been temporarily lifted. Finally, there's the return of some limited-time clothing in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue:
  • Gator Hat
  • Ortega Vest
  • Hitched Skirt (Female only)
  • Morning Tail Coat
  • Strickland Boots
  • Furred Gloves
  • Concho Pants
The care package, bonuses and discounts are all available now.

We've got the full list of Red Dead Redemption 2 achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
