Red Dead Online has likewise been covered with snow and holiday decorations. You can find the holiday gifts — a free coat and the Winter Evans Repeater variant — under the Benefits page. Meanwhile, "festive renditions" of Make It Count — Bow & Arrow and Last Stand are offering triple RDO$ and XP, while hunting Bounty Targets or taking part in Bounty Hunter Free Roam events will get you double XP. There are also some holiday discounts to make use of, including 30% off everything at the Wilderness Outfitters, five Gold Bars off the Butcher Table, ten Gold Bars off the Moonshine Shack, 30% off all Trader Wagons, Moonshiner Items, and Shack Upgrades, and 30% off Arabian, War, Work, and Race Horse breeds at the stables.

Lastly, Red Dead Online has a new Legendary Bounty with Virgil "The Shepherd" Edwards, "the deranged leader of the 7th Generation cult." If you've got a Prestigious Bounty Hunter license, you can begin this Legendary Bounty mission by visiting the Bounty Board.
