The past couple weeks of Red Dead Online content has been chock full of stuff to do for the three new Specialist roles, and that trend continues this week. The latest in the Wild West includes the addition of Legendary Bounties. These are weekly bounty missions that each have their own backstory and come with a bigger reward than players might expect. Currently, 10 are expected, but if players react well to them, I’d be surprised if we didn’t see more.
The first of these are available now, La Reina de los Banditos, Barbarella Alcazar, who can be found in Red Dead Online and returned dead or alive, although returning her deceased results in a decreased reward. This bounty runs through September 23rd. A new collector’s map is also available, and anyone who tracks down all of the Pearl of the Sea collection can turn in the full set for a large reward. Anyone who logs in from now through September 23rd will also receive 3,000 Club XP for the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club and 2,000 bonus XP for those with the outlaw pass. Read on for full details on this week’s Red Dead Online update, and stay tuned later in the week for fresh content in GTA Online.
Per Press Release:
Wanted: Legendary Bounties
The First Legendary Bounty Target is Now Available, Plus a New Collectible List, Free-Aim Series and More
Every bounty has a story, and it rarely ends well.
Starting today, we will introduce the first of 10 new Legendary Bounties, the most dangerous bounty targets from across the five states — a collection of the worst fraudsters, thieves and killers running loose and ready for you to track down.
Law keepers across The West have put out the call: La Reina de los Banditos, Barbarella Alcazar must be brought to justice.
Alcazar is the de facto leader of the bloodthirsty Del Lobos gang, rumored to be hiding out somewhere in New Austin. The dangerous widow of infamous killer Ricardo Alcazar is wanted for thievery, extortion and murder. Bring Alcazar in by September 23rd – deliver her alive to command a handsome sum or receive a slightly reduced return if she meets an untimely demise during the pursuit.
A new Legendary Bounty will come to light each week. Visit a nearby Bounty Board to see the new Legendary Bounty wanted poster and take them on solo or with up to three of your most trusted Posse members.
Collectors who played last week may have noticed the opportunity to seek out the Sacred Collection. This week, Madam Nazar is looking for the Pearls of the Sea collection consisting of the Durant Pearl Bracelet, Pelle Pearl Necklace and Bonnard Pearl Ring. Turn in the complete collection directly to Nazar or via any Post Office by September 23rd for a healthy payment in Red Dead Online.
Be on the lookout for a new collection each week and remember, while completing your collection you can pin any outstanding items from the Collector’s Bag Menu for quick access in the Player Menu.
Players interested in the thrill of competitive, free-aim gunslinging can launch Shootout Series (Free Aim) from the Online menuwhich plays host to free-aim iterations of Most Wanted, Name Your Weapon and Public Enemy. Keep an eye on the Online menu to see new competitive Free Aim series each week in Red Dead Online.
There are plenty of benefits awaiting riders of all stripes this week. Play Red Dead Online through September 23rd and receive a boost of 3,000 Club XP to aid your progress within the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club ranks. Players in possession of the Outlaw Pass will receive an additional 2,000 Club XP, helping them on their way to unlocking rewards like unique outfits and weapon mods, RDO$, bonus Gold and more. The Club XP will be delivered within 24 hours of playing Red Dead Online.
