There's an extra 50% Role XP in all Bounty Missions for Red Dead Online this week

This week in Red Dead Online, Rockstar are offering an extra 50% Role XP for all Bounty Hunter Missions and all Showdown Modes, as well as additional bonuses and benefits for Bounty Hunters.

Feb newswire

Until February 24th, players can get an extra 50% XP in all Bounty Hunter Missions, including Legendary Bounties and Bounty Hunter Free Roam Events. All Showdown Modes and all Races will also be offering an extra 50% XP all week. This week's featured series is Gun Rush: Teams: players will be dumped into a constantly shrinking arena filled with all the horses, weapons and gear they'll need to try and outlast the other team.

In keeping with the Bounty Hunter theme, this week sees the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Catalogue with a 30% discount on the LeMat Revolver, the Repeating Shotgun, and, for those who want to aim for the "or alive" part of bounty postings, there's 30% off the Reinforced Lasso. This week's newswire seems a little lighter on content than we've had before, but we know there's a lot coming to Red Dead Online in the future: Rockstar has said they want to add more roles, properties, and gameplay variety to Red Dead Online. What's most interesting is that they said that the Moonshiner role was a sort of evolution of the Trader role, and that they'd want to do something similar for the Collector role — so it seems we could be seeing a new Frontier pursuit soon. We'll keep you posted.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
