Red Dead Redemption 2 Online update adds a lovely new money-making combination

By Heidi Nicholas,
This week in Red Dead Online, Rockstar's offering a free American Wildflowers Map to show wildflower locations, which you can then combine with a 50% bonus for bringing American Wildflower sets to Madam Nazar.

Red Dead Online

The 50% bonus for American Wildflower sets only lasts until May 25th, and the offer of a free wildflower map is only available this week. It's still free, meanwhile, to create a Persistent Posse, with the usual $200 in-game fee being waived until the 8th of June, and this makes the Posse Up achievement much easier to unlock.

Rockstar's also taking 40% off the price of Camp Dogs, as well as 40% off any horse under rank 40. There's also 40% off the Pennington Field Shovel, Refined Binocular, and Metal Detector. Lastly, there's a range of clothing returning to the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Catalogue, available until May 25th: the Tasman, the Danube, the Manteca Hat, the Cossack Hat, the Boutell Hat, and the Irwin Coat.

Rockstar seems to be rotating the focus of each week's update between the various Frontier Roles. Since this week included bonuses for Collectors, it's possible the next few updates might focus on Bounty Hunters, Traders, and Moonshiners. We'll update you when we hear more of Rockstar's plans for the future of Red Dead Online.

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!
