CECIL C. TUCKER: ARSONIST AND MURDERER ON THE RUNNEW LEGENDARY BOUNTY, PLUS ROLE-SPECIFIC REWARDS AND BENEFITS, DISCOUNTS AND MORE

383fbac64aaa661e7bdf0f4ec7d1f27f962c6ab5

A mere twenty years old, Cecil C. Tucker is a known arsonist and murderer wanted for burning down homes in the slums of St. Denis. Since going on the lam, Tucker has aligned himself with local ne'er-do-wells in the Lemoyne Raiders and has been sighted entering Fort Brennand, north of St. Denis. 

Licensed Bounty Hunters can take on this Legendary Bounty Mission by approaching the nearest Bounty Board, indicated on the map. A short while after completing a Legendary Bounty, it will reappear to be played at an increased difficulty - indicated by the number of stars present on the poster.

As an ongoing element of Frontier Pursuits, Role-specific rewards will often become available to those who pursue the paths of the Bounty Hunter, Trader and Collector. This week, Licensed Bounty Hunters will receive 5X Tracking Arrows; Traders will get 5X Potent Predator Bait and 5X Potent Herbivore Bait; and Collectors will receive Three Collectible Coins. In addition, completing a 3-day Role Daily Challenge streak will reward you with an exclusive tint of the Folwell Hat. All gifts should arrive within 24 hours of playing Red Dead Online. 

This week also brings a slew of items to Xbox One, including the American Foxhound breed of Camp Dog, new Ability Cards (Gunslinger's Choice, Strength in Numbers and Ride Like The Wind), plus the Shoot the Sky Emote. And when flipping through the pages of the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Catalogue, Xbox One players can also peruse new clothing additions - the felt Carrigan Hat, leather Burnham Boots, and the fur-lined Avery Gloves.

Sureshot players looking to test their mettle can jump into several Free Aim modes, including this week's featured Free Aim Series, Last Stand. Compete in a bloodbath of a free-for-all with no easy way out, and be the last gunslinger standing to win.

Sharpshooters can also try their hand at Free Aim variants of the Shootout, Takeover and Elimination Series through October 21st.

Gunsmiths are also offering 50% off all Pistol, Revolver, Repeater, Shotgun and Rifle Ammo (including High Velocity and Express rounds).

Red Dead Online players who connect their Social Club account with Twitch Prime will receive the Bounty Hunter license for free, plus an additional 10% off of the discounts listed above, while players with an active PlayStation Plus subscription who log in any time before November 4th will receive an exclusive colorway of the Killiman Vest.

As a reminder, members of the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. club who have opted for The Outlaw Pass have until November 18th to progress through all 70 Ranks and unlock each available item. To give all Outlaw Pass holders an opportunity to acquire these unique items before they're gone for good, players can now unlock their next Club Rank for the price of 1 Gold Bar.

Is daily streak for role based challenges recorded separate to traditional daily challenges then? Or just as far as this bonus is concerned?

I would imagine so. It sure sounds that way.   .......like the Role based Daily Challenge streak will be separate from other ones.  I'm guessing these Role based challenges will be in top of "normal" ones but maybe someone can confirm.

The role based challenges I assume are just as they exist now but to this point I didn’t think they had a daily streak associated other than the original one??

I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to clutter this sort of post by posting random replies - discussion forum etiquette seems to vary a lot across the various, unrelated fora I inhabit - but I just wanted to say that I am loving these bonuses and in particular the new Legendary Bounty.  Much my favourite of those so far (although have liked them all) and without posting a spoiler the way I played it gave me my own highly enjoyable Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid moment.  An absolutely peach of a Bounty (have only done the first three stars so far, so can't judge the last two - might be impossible on my own!).

Anyway, thank you to whomever is behind it.  Loved it.

Damn, for weeks I've been hesitating buying ammo thinking I should wait for the next discount before stocking up but then buying it anyway. Finally the discount period comes and I hardly need any (I keep max stock in the lockbox)!! Still, I did save pretty big having not bought the weapon variants before now. 😀

Did all the weapon variants get discounted? A couple of them aren't for me but coincidentally they are the ones I hadn't bothered unlocking yet even though I had the tokens.
