For those that dont like playing the Showdowns/Races, the best way to rank up is to start the New Collector Role . For each Full Collection you sell, you will get 1550XP. Took me two weeks to go from 9 to 50 without really trying. Buy Metal Detector when you have $700 as it helps find Coins/Jewelry and Buried Arrowheads. Each set will net you between $200-$600. smile
Belly EllyAny idea what the payout per hour is in terms of XP?

VictimOfDesireAfter two full rotations of selling all collections, I've went from 13 or 14 to 39. This is definitely the best way to get XP and $ if you need it for stables/horses. +1

crewdyThis is definitely the way to go - avoids the stress of playing the garbage PVP. The payout probably isn't as quick as doing showdowns, but it's far more relaxing (and interesting!)

Also might be worth adding in a link to this page to help people find the collectibles in the current rotation:

A few personal tips: always hit the Random Spots that aren't too far out of the way between collectibles, you can save a LOT of time as each one awards you a random collectible. Also, always hit enemy bases, as killed enemies also have a chance to drop collectibles.

Zarda1Just use the Collectors role map it updates every day at 7pm est. Ignore the wild flowers after you have 3 of each. In about 6 hours a day you can hit level 50 in 3 days and bank about 12000$ cash. Don't do any other random events waste of time. Once you hit level 20 in collectors role you can buy one of the horses that unlock and at regular rank 35 you can buy the best saddle and you'll get around much better than if you don't have a good horse. Buy the pass if you have the gold for it. The benefits are enough you won't need to even need to worry about consumables and you'll hit club lvl100 really fast and get all your gold back. I'd do it now as rockstar tried and failed to nerf collectables.

TrombonafideCollector is the way to go. 30 to 49 in two days.

Swyer87Would anyone know if this is quicker than the 2 player method which is currently the highest rated solution?

YaIrishMick96What sets are you guys collecting? I spent hours in 3 sittings collecting almost every set and went from rank 15 to 22. Seems very slow
Posted by YaIrishMick96 on 17 Apr 20 at 20:51
YaIrishMick96Yeah I had just overestimated the amount of XP people were getting. Some had said they did one full collectors run and jumped from like 15 to 45, but thats rubbish.

FosterJag15This is the way to go I'd. It's a lot less stressful than any other way of leveling up, and like ASUnknown1 said getting the metal detector items helps a LOT. I went from 19 to 50 from last Friday to this Thursday playing a couple hours each day

SaifDoesn't the collector role cost real life money, aka meaning you have to purchase gold bars in order to be able to obtain the role?
Posted by Saif on 24 Apr 20 at 19:52
SimpsoGold bars can be earned by doing the daily challenges.
If you get a streak going you can net around 8 gold bars a day.

MarkyshizzleWill the xp boost going on this week effect this in a good way? i havent played red dead in ages

GReASySTRANgL3ROver the last week I’ve collected one set of all the cards and flowers, then once I had the metal detector I did one set of everything. I went from 16 to 35. So it is still a bit of a grind, I’m expecting to do another two whole sets to get to 50. I got my collectors bag for free from Twitch Prime, but I don’t know if that is still available

Who can buy this rol?

StahpGreat solution. Thanks.
For those starting the collector role and wondering how it works, I suggest the video which explain all the details.

l PartyWalrus l-Interactive Map for the collector role really helps as well :

went from 9-50 in about 4 days. Around 10 hours of game play i would say

DDevI've been collecting chocolate daisies and now after about 8 collected it says I can't carry more? -- EDIT** realised I needed that collector bag
Posted by DDev on 07 Jul 20 at 12:54
Negative. Stupid guide.

N30YRDOnce you hit collector level 20 you don't gain the extra 50xp at the end when you sell your whole collections...

Coins are the best for finding, they net you between 200-300xp for every coin (15 total coins), then 1500xp and 540$ to sell the whole set

Wwauthanks! was unaware where to start on level progression so ill definitely start the collector roll thumbs up! toast

ResinousHashishThe new update just made this much harder.

"In the update, Rockstar made changes to the collectible spots to make them less predictable. Unlike a cycle change which we can update easily daily, this is a more complicated change that prevents anyone from using a map to rush to a specific spot and gather a specific collectible they need. In other words, what item you get from a spot will be completely random with no way to tell which item you're going to get, other than the loot tables.

This change has been made for Arrowheads, Coins, most Jewelry, some Heirlooms and the new Fossil sets."

dsp100252To clarify what "completely random" means from Resinous' post, you also no longer have a guarantee of getting an entire set just by hitting all the spots in one day. Like you could end up getting the same coin 5 times in a row if you were unlucky. Total BS from R* angry
Posted by dsp100252 on 30 Jul 20 at 20:08
Belly EllyWith the added randomness, is this still the best way to go?
Posted by Belly Elly on 20 Oct 20 at 19:25
Belly EllyJust got the achievement, this is still by far the fastest way to level. Full collection sets give a nice xp bonus, but you get 100-300 xp per collectible. Just running around gathering everything will give enough xp to level up quickly. I focussed on the american flowers which are the easiest to collect, and you can finish 2 per day.

N30YRDI've installed red dead online again, and willing to help anyone who's struggling with this method...

Obviously if your starting from level 1 you won't have all the equipment needed, but we can work round it...

Message me on xbox or on here

GTAmissions1Using the collectible method and have ranked up from level 10 on June 20th and right now at level 49 as of June 26th. Roughly one week, but also make sure to try and do some of the awards such as spending $1,000 in-stores and resetting it once meeting the requirements.

Here are the collectibles I targeted which are guaranteed:

1. Card sets (there are four different sets)
2. Antique alcohol bottles
3. Bird eggs (make sure you mark off to avoid duplicating trips if already have)
4. Family heirlooms

The collectibles refresh at around 8 PM Eastern Standard Time or EST for short. If doing it all in one go, it took around 4 to 5 hours which also utilized fast travel.

Fast travel fees are waived until June 29th. Bonus bounty hunter bonuses is the current promotion going on.

ReaboThanks for the guide! I made a video using it for anyone wondering the on more details and some tips. I had trouble being new to the game on where to get the collectors role and didn't realise it needed unlocking along and how to use the metal detector etc
