Red Dead Online - A Tough Business

Thanksgiving is coming to the frontier, complete with some exciting bonuses, discounts, clothes and A Tough Business mode that pays out 50 per cent more than usual.

Red Dead Online players are getting a bunch of new activities, including A Tough Business mode that increases the Telegram Missions' difficulty by removing enemy blips from the radar and doing away with aim assist. Those who manage to walk away from A Tough Bussines will do so with an extra 50 per cent RDO$ for helping "J".

Bonus RDO$ this week

Defend Valentine and Blackwater in Call to Arms

The next two weeks will see the outposts of Valentine and Blackwater struggling under siege and it will be up to the players to survive against waves of attackers in Call to Arms mode. Defend Valentine until November 29 for an added 50 per cent RDO$. Blackwater will need help from November 30 until December 6.

Double Rewards

Double RDO$ and XP on Shootout and Team Shootout modes

The classic gunfight modes with unlimited lives are a race to collect most kills before the timer reaches zero. Rewards include double RDO$ and XP.

Blood Money rewards

Completing any Blood Money Contract before November 30 will net you an Offer for 50 per cent off select Outfits (up to Rank 15). An Offer for five Gold Bars off the Bounty Hunting Licenses, Collector’s Bag, Butcher’s Table, Naturalist’s Sample Kit, or the Moonshine Shack will go to anyone who manages to get their hands on the Covington Emerald. Rewards and Offers will arrive within 72 hours.

Capitale boosts in all Blood Money Contract Missions until November 29: Small and Large Chests along with criminals will have increased Capitale rewards.
