Legendary Animal Hunting Bonuses In Red Dead Online This Week

Grab your best rifle and skinning knife, because this week in Red Dead Online extra rewards await the best hunters willing to go after the toughest animals roaming the wild. There are some other bonus earning opportunities, as well as some discounts on offer.

If you are willing to take on the challenge of hunting down a Legendary Animal, doing so this week will earn you a bunch of extras. If you manage to kill one of these noble beasts either in Free Roam or as part of a Legendary Animal Sighting mission, you'll receive a free care package consisting of 100 rounds of Nitro Express Ammo for the Elephant Rifle, a Weight Gain Tonic, and a Weight Loss Tonic.

The additional rewards don't end there, though - if you deliver the skinned hide and carcass of the Legendary Animal to Gus at his trapper store, you'll get 2 Fast Travel Rewards and a Snowy Egret Plume. Stick around long enough to craft some item like a Trinket or a Coat, and you'll get a Offer for 40% off an Established or Distinguished Naturalist Item of your choice on top of it all.

Simply logging into Red Dead Online this week as long as you have the Naturalist Role unlocked will net you 1,000 Naturalist XP and 5 Animal Revivers right off the bat. If you don't have the Naturalist Role unlocked, now is the time to remedy that, as the Sample Kit from Harriet is discounted by 5 Gold Bars.

If you prefer your rewards to consist of cold, hard cash instead of various items, then this week's other bonus opportunity might be more up your alley. All Free Roam Missions in Red Dead Online are paying out double the usual RDO$.

There is a new inventory of limited time items available in Red Dead Online this week, including the Fanned Stovepipe Hat, the Eberhart Coat, the Macbay Jacket, the Chambliss Corset and the Danube Outfit.

This week's discounts include 40% off all American Paint and Andalusian Horses, and you can stock up on camping supplies at cost with 50% off all Blankets, Horns, and Bedrolls. To better arm yourself for your hunting expeditions, you can pick up any Rifle for 30% off.
