Red Dead Online has a 50% Role XP boost for Moonshiner missions this week

By Heidi Nicholas,
This week's update for Red Dead Online has more of a Moonshiners focus: there's a 50% Role XP boost for all Moonshiner Sell, Bootlegger and Story Missions. There's also a range of new discounts, bonuses, and rewards, including the chance to earn RDO$100 for completing Role Challenges.

Rockstar says that players who haven't yet started the Moonshiner Specialist Role will need to be at a Trader Rank of at least 5, or have completed a Trader Sell Mission, and have talked to Cripps and Maggie Fike. There's also a 10 Gold Bars discount on all Moonshine Shack Properties, which will come in handy for those who haven't established a base of operations yet. This week's discounts also include 40% off Norfolk Roadster Horses and Band Expansions.

Filling all seven of the Outfit Slots will reward players with any free Off-Hand Holster under Rank 70. Completing three Role Challenges, meanwhile, will get you a reward of RDO$100. Last week, Rockstar rolled out a new Featured Series with new Showdown Mode variations. This week sees the start of the Last Stand Showdown Series, running until March 30th. It's a variation which sees each player spawning next to a random weapon, with the sole goal of being the last to survive. It's located on the Annesburg Mine, Armadillo and Cemetery maps. Rockstar's Rank-Based rewards, meanwhile, have been extended to run until June 1st.

There'll be more Showdown variations on the way, and we'll keep you posted with all Red Dead Online updates.

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!
