A time of fun and mayhem may be just what we need right now in the world. Being able to divest oneself of the conditions that the COVID-19/coronavirus situation has placed upon us certainly makes quarantine or isolation that much easier to bear. With that in mind, perhaps it is time to jump back into Red Dead Online. Gather up your posse of lawbreakers and law bringers — Rockstar is making it worth your while this week with discounts.
Jack of all trades
Rather than focusing on a particular activity or role, the weekly bonus this week will see a massive 50% increase on all things important. From the week starting April 14, expect a neat boost to XP, RDO$, and Gold earned on all completed Free Roam activities. Considering the many tasks you can get up to for just a short duration, this is a good investment of your time in Red Dead Online.
Completing any Free Roam Event before April 20 will also earn you a Coupon for 50% off any Coat that has a rank gate below 15. Better yet, simply log in sometime between April 17 and April 20 and get yourself a free Ability Card. No effort required whatsoever, and you will see your reward within 48 hours.
The featured series for this week will be Last Stand. It is time to return to the prison island off the shores of Lemoyne. The newest random weapon variation of Last Stand takes you back to where it all began in Red Dead Online, the unfriendly confines of Sisika Penitentiary.
The Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Catalogue will also see a selection of clothing items returning to its pages for a limited time. Until April 27, you can stock up on clothing items to suit your needs. Whether it is to avoid detection or attract attention in Red Dead Online, there is something for everyone:
- Plaid Cap
- Folwell Hat
- Gardenia Hat
- Macbay Jacket
- Clymene Coat
- Cardozo Vest
- Carver Pants
- Griffith Chaps
- Pelt Half Chaps
Plus, you can get the following items with massive discounts; you need somewhere to spend that hard-earned RDO$ after all:
- 30% off all Shotguns
- 30% off all Bandoliers
- 30% Off all Multi-class Horses
- 70% off all Emotes
- 50% off all Melee weapons
- 80% off all Ability Cards
While you are saving some money on Red Dead Online during this period, you can also do good in the world. A portion of all proceeds from the game, as well as Grand Theft Auto Online, during April and May will go towards a fund for those affected by the pandemic.
