Elite Bounty Hunters Apply Within: The Prestigious Bounty Hunter License Is Available Now

10 New Prestigious Ranks with New Role Items, Bounty Targets and More

The West is a lawless place – a wide expanse filled with all manners of predator and their prey. Overwhelmed by the emergence of a new order of bandits and reprobates, the law is seeking Bounty Hunters of the highest caliber to help bring in some notorious targets.

Whether you’re a Distinguished agent already known to law enforcement or a brave Novice with a penchant for adventure, the Bounty Hunting Role in Red Dead Online offers a life of action on both sides of the law.

The Prestigious Bounty Hunter License adds 10 new Ranks of progression atop the 20 from the Bounty Hunter Role Ranks with high level items and skills to acquire, new weapon variants and horses, Infamous Bounty targets on the Bounty Boards and more.

The Prestigious Bounty Hunter License can be purchased from any Bounty Board by anyone who holds a Bounty Hunter License. And should you reach Bounty Hunter Rank 30, you’ll continue to accumulate Bounty Hunter XP – which can be traded for RDO$ and Gold in the Awards Menu.


Plus, newcomers can take 5 Gold Bars off the Bounty Hunter License to get started on the Specialist Role, while all Bounty Hunters can take 40% off Bounty Hunter items up to Rank 20.



Prestigious Bounty Hunters should keep an eye on the Local Bounty Boards over the next few weeks for information on new Legendary Bounties, starting with dandy-turned-bastard Gene “Beau” Finley and his gang wanted for a string of robberies.

Chief among a credulous posse of mercenaries sought for orchestrating bank robberies across the south, this undesirable upstart is often seen sporting an extravagant tailored suit. Desperate to acquire infamy for all the wrong reasons, Finley must be brought to justice at the earliest possible convenience.

He and his heavily armed band are said to occupy a dilapidated colonial property in Bayou Nwa. The gang is potentially harboring captives including some particularly predatory species, so beware…


A new Outlaw Pass also makes its way to Red Dead Online today, with new outfits, emotes, camp upgrades and more. Chosen photographs from The Naturalist Challenge are also now available as free Camp Flags, Moonshine Bar Photos and Photo Studio Backgrounds via the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club.

Members who upgrade to the Outlaw Pass for 40 Gold Bars will receive an assortment of new rewards, including luxurious warm clothing suitable for cold weather, new satchel and skill pamphlets, advanced photography enhancements, bonus cash and 30 Gold Bars, special gifts and much more.

This week, all players who own the Outlaw Pass No. 4 will receive RDO$400 as well as a 10 Gold Bar rebate within 72 hours of purchasing the pass.


Various additions and improvements have also been implemented today including the ability to combine stubble with beard styles and use the Advanced Camera while on horseback. Bounty Hunters can use a new Gunspinning Management option in the Player Menu to select and swap learned Gunspinning tricks.

Merciful vigilantes and cold-blooded killers alike can still make hay while the sun’s shining, as all Bounty Hunter missions in Red Dead Online are dishing out double XP. In addition, posse up with some trustworthy types and you’ll all earn increased RDO$ and XP payouts in Free Roam and Bounty Missions, as well as Free Roam Events through December 7th.

In addition to the 5 Gold Bar discount on the Bounty Hunter License and 40% off all Novice, Promising, Established and Distinguished Bounty Hunter Items, new players can take advantage of double the usual XP for all A Land of Opportunities missions. Get revenge on the treacherous Teddy Brown at Fort Mercer in “Kill Them, Each and Every One” and accompany the bereaved Mrs. LeClerk to Blackwater for her rendezvous with Amos Lancing in “Destroyed by Grief” to earn a bonus RDO$100 for completing each mission.

All Red Dead Online players will receive Rewards for 2,000 Club XP and 2,000 Bounty Hunter XP this week; those Rank 5 or above will receive a Treasure Map, while all players Rank 10 or above get a free Ability Card Upgrade of their choice.
