This week’s Red Dead Online update, the now standalone online component of Red Dead Redemption 2, includes a new Legendary Bounty for those who own the newly available Prestigious Bounty Hunter licence. There are also new bonuses and benefits, and a number of new discounts.
Carmela “La Muñeca” Montez, the recently installed head of the Dos Lobos gang, is this week’s Legendary bounty target. Montez and her posse have claimed responsibility for a string of gruesome highway robberies, with their hideout situated in West Elizabeth at the Hanging Dog Ranch. Those with the Prestigious Bounty Hunter licence can pick up Montez’s wanted poster at any sheriff’s office to begin the pursuit. Revisiting the bounty board again after a brief period will give you the option to replay the mission at a higher difficulty.
All bounties are currently paying out 50% extra, including the new three-part Infamous Bounties. All Bounty Hunters can also get 30% off a horse of their choosing this week, while those who take down Montez and complete the Legendary Bounty will get an additional 30% off a weapon of their choice.
Hunters and Naturalists can take advantage of some other bonuses by visiting Gus’ Store between December 8 and December 21. Doing so will reward you with five Special Health Cures, 200 Express Rifle Ammo rounds, and 10 pieces of Big Game Meat. Players who own Outlaw Pass No. 4 will receive 5,000 player XP and two rewards, each granting a free Ability Card.
When it comes to discounts, aspiring Collectors and Naturalists can take five gold bars off the cost of the Collector’s Bag and Sample Kit, on top of 40% off all cosmetic Collector’s Role items and Novice and Promising Naturalist items. Finding any collectable this week will also earn you an offer for a free emote. Hunters and Marksmen, meanwhile, can take 30% off the Bolt-Action and Elephant Rifles, plus everything in Gus’ Store.
Those who connect their Rockstar Games Social account with Prime Gaming will receive a free Bounty Hunter licence and an award for the Trimmed Amethyst Bounty Wagon livery. Players who connect to Prime Gaming before December 21 will also receive a reward for a free Breton Horse and RDO$100.
