September update outlined for Red Dead Online that brings Bounty Hunter Bonuses, Free Outfit, and More


From Press Release:

Crime and chaos reign on the wilds of the frontier. Bring criminals to heel and punish the lawless as a Bounty Hunter in Red Dead Online, and you’ll benefit from increased pay and other bonuses through October 2.

Licensed Bounty Hunters who play Red Dead Online any time this month will receive 3 Hawkmoth Bolas to help them apprehend their targets without inflicting lethal harm. For those yet to partake in the Bounty Hunter Frontier Pursuit, visit the Sheriff’s office in Rhodes to get started, and take advantage of 5 Gold Bars off the Bounty Hunter License.

2X RDO$ and XP on all Bounties

Hunting for heads is a worthy pursuit for any sharpshooter, doubly so this month when all Bounties — Regular, Player, Infamous and Legendary Bounties alike — are all paying out Double RDO$ and XP to those willing to bring targets in dead or alive. For the distinctly audacious and adventurous Bounty Hunters, Infamous and Legendary Bounties are also awarding 2X Gold. Find your nearest Bounty Board to set your sights on a target.

3X RDO$, Gold, and XP on all Bounty Hunter Award Trade-Ins

Vigilantes who’ve reached Rank 30 of the Bounty Hunter role can exchange their Bounty Hunter Experience Award for triple the usual going rate of RDO$, Gold, and XP by maneuvering to the Awards section of the Progress Menu and selecting the Trade In option.

Special Bounty Bonuses

Complete any Bounty Hunter Free Roam Event (look out for invites to Manhunt and Day of Reckoning) before October 2 to land a grey and navy pair of Griffith Chaps. Those with a Prestigious Bounty Hunter License who successfully nab both a Legendary and Infamous Bounty this month will receive a dark olive Benbow Jacket along with a pack of Cigarettes — which provide a slight boost to Deadeye.

Embarking down the path of the outlaw and completing any Blood Money Opportunity will net you the green and light tan colorway of the Calhoun Boots. Completing three Blood Money Contracts, meanwhile, will get you the grey Winter Shotgun Coat to protect you from the elements. Blood Money Contracts and Blood Money Opportunities are available from certain Free Roam contacts after meeting with Guido Martelli in Saint Denis.

In addition to the above, complete any Bounty during the specified periods below to receive additional limited time rewards:

        • September 5 – 11: A green and light tan Winter Shotgun Coat
        • September 12 – 18: A green pair of Calhoun Boots
        • September 19 – 25: White and navy Griffith Chaps
        • September 26 – October 2: A gray Benbow Jacket

All Offers and Rewards will be delivered within 72 hours of completion.
