Red Dead Online Gets Bounty Hunting, Showdown Bonuses

This week's bonuses in Red Dead Online certainly aren't geared towards the pacifists among you, with a focus on gunslinging and PvP. Bounty Hunters will be getting the most out of these promotions, but in case you don't have a license, there are other ways to gain and advantage if you're not about to shy away from a few duels.

All Bounty Hunter activities, including Bounty Missions, Legendary Bounties and Bounty Hunter Free Roam Events are rewarding players with +50% Role XP all the way through the 24th of February. Considering Rockstar recently gave away Bounty Hunter licenses, most players likely have access to this content - if you don't, you can always jump into a few Showdown Modes, which also award +50% XP this week.

Alongside Bounty Hunter activities and Showdown Modes, you can take advantage of the same +50% XP boost in all Races as well. If you get bored of grinding these events, change the pace a bit with the featured Free-Aim series, Gun Rush: Teams.

You'll need some powerful weaponry if you plan on taking down the most bounties or winning the most Showdown matches - luckily, this week's sales have got you covered. The Schofield Revolver and Bolt-Action Rifle both have special Bounty Hunter variants, and both happen to be discounted. They are joined by two regular weapons, the LeMat Revolver and Repeating Shotgun, both on sale at a 30% discount.

As Bounty Hunters, you'll get greater rewards if you manage to bring in your targets alive, your rewards will be significantly greater. To help you bring brigands to justice with greater efficiency, the Reinforced Lasso is also 30% off.

If you happen to be a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can pick up three Moonshiner Mash Refills and three Trader Resupplies for free this week. There are also standing bonuses for players who link their Twitch Prime accounts - more on that here.
