Red Dead Online Quick Early Game Money Making Tips


Recommended Posts

At the beginning of Red Dead Redemption 2, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are pretty poor, but things improve as soon as you can start exploring the world, as there are countless ways to make money such as committing robberies, hunting bounties, selling parts harvested from animals and so on.

Things, however, are quite different in Red Dead Online. Players start poor and can remain poor for quite a long time, since there aren't many opportunities to make money, at least for now. There's a way, however, to earn money quickly in the early game and making it easier to purchase good weapons and any other type of item.


Unfortunately, this quick money making method has the potential of ruining the Red Dead Online story experience, as you will be playing Story missions that you may not have unlocked yet. If you don't want this from happening, just try to get through as many as possible before attempting to earn money through the method described below. Additionally, you won't be able to use it once you have progressed enough, so think long and hard on how to invest the earned money.

To start making money quickly in Red Dead Online, you need to unlock the ability to Free Roam. Once this is done, you can open the Free Roam menu by pressing left on the directional pad. Select Quick Join from the menu and then Story Mission On-Call. By doing this, you will be joining an on-going Story Mission playthrough: the later in the story the mission is, the better the rewards will be.


Unfortunately, there is no way to know exactly how much money you can make in a set amount of time by using this method, as some missions are more rewarding than others. There are a few ways to maximize profits, however: make sure to complete each mission without dying, as restarting from a checkpoint reduces the final reward for the mission, and avoid playing the same mission more than once, as you will only be rewarded with XP for repeated playthroughs.

Investing the obtained money in the right way will also help you earn more money once you have completed several Story Missions through this method. Getting a powerful rifle, like the Bolt-Action Rifle, is a good way to go, as you will be able to get Perfect Pelts from big animals, allowing you to get some decent amounts of money for each one sold.
