MOONSHINERS: A NEW FRONTIER PURSUITCOMING DECEMBER 13TH TO RED DEAD ONLINE

In an America not yet fully governed by law, opportunity abounds for the lawless - wild open space ready and waiting for the ruthless and ambitious to carve a new future for themselves. How better to make your fortune than to become a black-market Moonshiner, the all-new Frontier Pursuit coming to Red Dead Online on December 13th. Establish your own bootlegging business in this new Specialist Role – an ideal fit for players progressing along the Trader path or anyone seeking a property to call their own. Unlock unique role-specific skills as you perfect your distillation methods, avoid the law, and put rival peddlers out of business. If you’re lucky, you might survive long enough to open your own speakeasy.

Any active Trader who has completed a sell mission or reached Rank 5 in the Trader progression will receive an introduction via Cripps to meet the infamous Maggie Fike - an experienced bootlegger with the scars to prove it - down at Emerald Ranch. Maggie’s got the connections and the knowledge to help you get your business up and running.

Purchase a Moonshining Shack and you will be on your way. To passers-by, the Shack is an unassuming dwelling, the main floor acting as a front with all the details of an ordinary homestead. The basement, however, is where you'll ultimately get down to business.

Owning and operating the Moonshine business is just part of your role. You’ll also work with Maggie through a series of story missions to be played solo or cooperatively as you help her get revenge on those who tried to take her down. As you grow the business (and eliminate a rival operation), you’ll learn new recipes and techniques that help make your moonshine the best by a country mile. You'll also have the opportunity to set up your own underground Bar serving your own shine, with customizable décor and the option to add a country band complete with dance floor to entertain your friends and clientele.

Look for much more to come to Red Dead Online alongside Moonshiners on December 13th - including Outlaw Pass No. 2, new Moonshiner role unlocks, the new Navy Revolver, additional clothing options and an increase in the amount of outfit slots in your Wardrobe.

Interesting.  Didn't take them long to do a 180 on property ownership.

 

"Put rival peddlars out of business"

Uh oh,  them darn griefers! 

Yeah.....  Just waitin' for those threads to pop up.  

On a serious note, likely won't be anything much different in that respect to the Trader role (e.g. long distance deliveries vs. local).

They always said they would be adding property... They just kept it a vague ‘down the road’ thing. As for putting Me out of business... Well... go ahead. Make my day...

Yeah, that was my first thought too.  Pretty cool that they are integrating some of the businesses from GTAO like that.  .....with a different spin.

Sounds fun. I sure hope they fix the connection issues so that I can actually play it. Ever since I swapped out my rented cable modem/router for one I own, I can't play without getting disconnected from Rockstars servers every few minutes. I've tried all the tricks I've read about online to remedy it, but nothing has worked. I don't  have this issue with other online games and I'm  NOT going back to a rented one! I've stopped playing because of this and it's  a shame. This is my favorite online game.

We get to setup a still and make corn whiskey. Soon it will be time to make some of that apple pie!. 
 

Have they released any images of the Navy Revolver? 
 

Please tell me it is a Colt Navy cap and ball revolver!.

I believe this image has a player character with the Navy revolver holstered



The LeMat is technically cap and ball, yet in game it uses Revolver Cartridges. I would expect the same for the Navy revolver

Yeah, they take a lot of liberties with those kinds of aspects of the game including the reloading mechanics / speed, calibers / ammo, etc.  Personally, I think they could have been more realistic in that regard while still finding a balance between weapons fiddling with stats, pros / cons, etc.

Really, really... REALLY hoping they allow us to actually buy property. I am sick of this camp bs. Even if it was working how it should, I would much rather have a house or something.

Buy a shack.... work your way up to a speakeasy... Sounds like the start of property ownership to me...

Many cap and ball revolvers had conversions kit installed during the time frame of this game.

As much as i would like to put other players business out of work im affraid that its connected to solo/posse missions that will await while progressing the Moonshiner role.

So yeah..... but still cool.

I just want to introduce The Liquor to as many people as possible....  it yeah, I’m definitely excited. I’m pretty sure old Cripps is going to get pretty lonely when I start spending all my time in my hooch shack...

How can Cripps get lonely if he will not even spawn your camp. :)
