Rockstar Games isn't very subtle with their favoritism. It's probably the result of watching the stats and seeing that most players favor the Bounty Hunter Role over the others, but still - there have been a lot of these event weeks dedicated to the lasso spinning vigilantes among us, haven't there?
This week players can expect to earn double Role and Character XP and +50% RDO$ when they complete any of the several Legendary Bounty Contracts available. Remember, you can increase the difficulty of these missions (provided you've done them before) for increased rewards!

The 3 available Prestigious Bounties, which require an upgrade to a prestigious license to accept, are also paying out double RDO$. To help you along in your righteous mission to deliver justice to the wicked, Rockstar is giving all players logging into Red Dead Online this week a reward for 1,000 Bounty Hunter Role XP and 100 rounds of Express Repeater Ammo.
The discounts of the week are also fittingly thematic, helping Bounty Hunters throughout the frontier stock up on the tools of the trade at cost. If you haven't yet started your bounty hunting career, the initial investment of buying a license has been reduced by 5 Gold Bars. Similarly, the upgrade to Prestigious is also discounted by 5 bars.
Hunting the scum of the earth is dangerous business, so make sure to dress in an outfit you'd be okay with being caught dead in. All Bounty Hunter Role Outfits are half price, and just so you can showboat while you're still alive, so are Role Emotes.
To help with clearing out lackeys of your targets, or facilitating the "dead" portion of the dead or alive equation, all bounty hunter weapon variants can be purchased at a 30% price reduction, alongside Wagon Tints, Role Accessories, Saddles, Off-Hand Holsters and Gun Belts.
That 30% discount also applies to select weapons like the Schofield Revolver, the Bolt-Action Rifle and all repeaters. Stock up, lock, load, and catch some crooks!
