Rockstar have announced another week worth of Red Dead Online goodies, which should be great news for the cowboys riding it out in isolation. So, there's the Daily Challenge bonus, free Gold Bars for logging in and more.

You should also know that Rockstar joined the fight against the ongoing pandemic, whereby 5 per cent of their revenue from purchases in GTA Online and Red Dead Online will be donated to COVID-19 relief efforts. In other words, if you spend in-game, you're almost a humanitarian, wink wink. 

Back to Red Dead Online - players who complete one Daily Challenge per day and reach a 3-day streak are getting a special gift package. 

It contains 10 Special Health Cures, 10 Special Miracle Tonics, 10 Special Snake Oils and 20 Incendiary Buckshot Slugs. Red Dead Online dev mentioned that the gifts will arrive in the Post Office or your Camp Lockbox within 48 hours of hitting the streak. 

Rockstar threw in a login bonus as well, or a "little extra pocket change" as they call it, so Red Dead Online players who log in any time until 14 April 2020 get 5 Gold Bars for free. These too are on a 48-hour arrival timer, so don't get your cowboy panties up in a bunch if they're not immediately paid out. 

To top things off, playing Showdown Modes and Races this week will give out Double XP this week, so if competing is your game - there's a lot of free XP waiting for you.

If you happen to be more about Red Dead Online's cosmetics and shopping, however, Wheeler, Rawson & Co are offering 40 per cent off of rifles, pistols and pamphlets, and 50 per cent off of ponchos, shirts and Wilderness Outfiters store items (does not include Butcher's Table). Off-hand holsters and gun bets, draft horses, war horses, pants and gloves are 70 per cent off.
