A new Legendary Bounty is now available in Red Dead Online alongside several other benefits for players choosing to explore the wild west this week.
Rockstar Games just recently announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 would be coming to the PC as early as next month. That doesn’t mean that they’ve stopped working on expanding the content available in Red Dead Online, however. In fact, this week sees the addition of a new Legendary Bounty, new clothing options, Naturalists missions for the collector types, and a bevy of other bonuses.
Legendary Bounty: Sergio Vincenza
The anarchist agitator and former military sharpshooter Sergio Vincenza is this week’s Legendary Bounty. Since defecting from the military, Vincenza has been on the run, and his accuracy with a rifle has passed into the stuff of legends. The glint of sunshine reflecting off his scope is said to be a grim harbinger and an omen of death.
His last major operation was a botched assassination attempt on the Governor of Saint-Denis, and he is rumored to be holed up in the fire tower at Roanoke Ridge. Licensed Bounty Hunters can take on Vincenza and his anarchist gang by picking up his poster at any local sheriff’s office. If you’re not yet authorized, you’re able to receive a free Bounty Hunter’s license by linking your Twitch Prime account with your Rockstar account.
Online Bonuses & Slaughter Mask
For players less inclined to chase down bounties, there are a variety of other activities to partake in. Wheeler, Rawson & Co. has a new selection of clothing available, including the Folwell and Dillehay hats, the Prieto Poncho, Eberhart Coat, and the combo of the Morales Vest and Carver Pants. Additionally, many activities will provide an extra 30% XP this week, including:
- Bounty Hunter: All Bounty Missions including Legendary and PvP Bounties
- Bounty Hunter: Manhunt and Day of Reckoning Free Roam Events
- Bounty Hunter: All Daily Challenges
- Trader: All Sell Missions
- Trader: All Daily Challenges
- Trader: Trade Route Free Roam Event
- Collector: Collecting Coins, Family Heirlooms and Wild Flowers
- Collector: All Weekly Set Sale and Collectors Set Sales
- Collector: Salvage and Condor Egg-Free Roam Events and Daily Challenges
Finally, since Halloween is just around the corner and there have been rumors swirling of potential undead content coming to Red Dead Online, players can now unlock an especially spooky mask. Starting Thursday, playing GTA Online between October 10th and December 12th will unlock this free mask to wear in Red Dead Online.
All of this content is now live in Red Dead Online and should keep you busy until Red Dead Online 2 comes to the PC in November.
