There’s an old cowboy saying that goes, ‘You ain’t learnin’ nothin’ when your mouth’s a-jawin’, so you’d best be thankful to ol’ Russ here for writing everything about Rockstar’s latest Red Dead Online deal down for you so you can read it instead.

From now through February 24, anyone roaming the prairies looking for their next big score should pull up their socks and sharpen their spurs because all Bounty Missions and Bounty Hunter Free Roam Events are awarding an extra 50% Role XP to all those who love to hunt bounty.

There’s also something special for the gunslingers among you too, with a 50% XP Boost available in any Race and Showdown Mode; for anyone with a gang out looking to prove their mettle check out this week’s featured series, Gun Rush: Teams, where you’ll really feel the squeeze as the battle area literally shrinks around you while the bullets whizz by.

Back to bounty hunting and if you’re finding your old gear’s lost its sparkle why not flip through the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. catalogue, where you’ll find a whole host of special deals on offer to help you track down that contract, including:

  • Bounty Hunter variants of the Schofield Revolver and Bolt-Action Rifle
  • 30% off the LeMat Revolver and Repeating Shotgun
  • 30% off the Reinforced Lasso

Plus, if you’re a PlayStation Plus member you can expect 3 Moonshiner Mash refills and 3 Trader resupplies for free(!), while Red Dead Online gamers with a Twitch Prime account will receive a Collector’s Bag and Polished Copper Moonshine Still upgrade, also for free!

So saddle up, polish those pistols, and remember: ALWAYS drink upstream from the herd.
