Players will need to track down an unlikely target this week in Red Dead Online, if they have chosen to walk the path of the Bounty Hunter. There are also several new bonuses, a featured free-aim series, all-new clothing items and a few discounts which benefit various Roles.
Hunters are a key player in the frontier economy, but spending long stretches of time in the isolated woods can be tough on the psyche. "Yukon" Nikoli Borodin went from hunting bears to taming them, and using them to hunt people instead. Now, the Hunter must become the Hunted, as the murderer has a tidy bounty on his head.
Watch out when you seek your target - Nikoli's bears will protect their new master's den near Fort Riggs. If you manage to wrestle the bear and take him in to face justice, you'll get a bonus reward of 3 Special Snake Oil and 10 Big Game Meat, alongside your usual monetary reward.
You'll have the chance to expand your wardrobe with the newest additions to the in-game store. The Chumley Flat Cap, Salcedo Shirt, Crutchfield Suspenders, Fullbright Coat, Dress Shoes and the Cardenas Poncho are all permanent additions to the selection, alongside women's wear including the Ballard Jacket, Aguirre Boots and Goodale Shirtwaist. The Bandana and Trimmed Bandana may be well-worn staples, but they got new color schemes as well.
If you want some extra action after you finished your weekly Legendary Bounty, you can pop into the featured Team Shootout series for some PvP action, or collect the Bowman's Collection. Find the Flint Arrowhead, Raw Arrowhead and Agate Arrowhead and sell them to Madam Nazar for a large payout.
Traders can expand their profit margins this week with a +50% bonus on all Goods Delivery rewards, allowing you to earn more by doing the same missions - as long as you are using Small or Medium wagons. Speaking of wagons, Trader and Hunter wagons are on sale with a 25% discount while Trader Resupply orders are half-price.
