Another week, another Legendary Animal for you to track down and either sample or kill. Alongside the new Animal Sighting Mission, some additional maps have been added to the Shootout mode this week, and time is running out to progress along the tiers of The Outlaw Pass No.3 if you are keen on earning some special rewards.
The Legendary Ruddy Moose has been spotted in the forest among the tall trees of, well, Tall Trees by the locals. A highly cautious and aware animal, the moose will bolt at the first sign of trouble, giving any poacher or Naturalist a hard time unless they're appropriately stealthy. Sneak up and slay the beast, or just knock him out and sample him. May as well call him Paul, too.
If you are a heartless monster and killed the Ruddy Moose, you can take the carcass back to Gus' Trapper Store and unlock the Ruddy Coat and Cowl. Not restricting his bloody trade to being with antlers, Gus is also paying a +50% premium on all bear pelt sales this week. Whether you killed or sampled the moose, completing the mission will net you a free Offhand Holster.
The Shootout Series has been expanded with a new set of maps for you to riddle with holes, and in celebration of the new scenery, it's also this week's Featured Series. Practice your gun-slinging alone or with a team across Blackwater, Tumbleweed, the port of Saint Denis, The Manor and Bolger Glade.
The third iteration of The Outlaw Pass is drawing to a close one week from now. You have until the 19th of October to smash the objectives and reach those top tiers to unlock the various unique rewards offered in Pass No. 3, before it's retired. Likely we'll see a No. 4 pop up before the end of the year, so if you've already maxed everything out, you needn't wait long for more challenges and rewards!
Players have been quite busy during this cycle of The Outlaw Pass, so Rockstar is rewarding all that hard work with a care package of 10 Special Health Cures, 5 pieces of Lost Jewelry and 200 rounds of Sedative Ammo given to all Pass holders, while those of you who reached Rank 50 and beyond will also get exclusive colorways of the Griffith Chaps and the Caffyns Hat.
Anyone logging into Red Dead Online before the 19th will also get 5 Blending Tonics and 50 rounds of Nitro Express Ammo for free, and you can pick up all forms of bait at half price, while shotguns and the Elephant Rifle are 40% off.
