The new month starts today in Red Dead Online. Here is the overview of what you can look forward to.
This month Rockstar felt a little more generous than usual, having bonuses for the featured events up to 5x their usual money or experience, as opposed to the usual triple rewards the players have been getting for the past couple of months.
One of the not-so-popular activities is being rewarded big time this month, and that is horse racing.
For every week this month players will receive 10 Apples, 10 Classic Oatcakes, and 10 Horse meals while purchasing any weapon modification will be rewarded with 5 special horse stimulants.
As for the more valuable rewards, there are:
- 5X XP for steady shooting while out-racing the competition in Target Races
- 4X RDO$ for participating in Standard Races
- 3X Gold for cutting your own route between points A and B in Open Races
2x money and XP on selected Blood money contracts
Blood money contracts, as well as Free-roam missions, are rewarded twice their usual XP and money for the entirety of this month.
Blood money contracts that are getting rewarded this month are The Jeb Phelps Contract. The Bluewater Contract, and the Guido Martelli attack mission
