Bonuses in Showdowns and Races

Twitch Prime & PlayStation Plus Perks
Players who connect their Rockstar Social Club account to their Twitch Prime account will receive the Collector’s Bag and the Polished Copper Moonshine Still. Doing so will also grant an additional five Moonshiner Role Ranks.
Likewise, PlayStation Plus members can look forward to receiving a new fisherman’s starter pack in Red Dead Online that includes various types of fishing lures as well as a treasure map of the North Clingman area.
Are you the fastest gun in the West? How about the swiftest rider?
