Red Dead Redemption 2‘s Red Dead Online has received another update from Rockstar. The new week brings back a familiar weapon from the first game, as well as a new Fre Roam event, Fool’s Gold.
In Fool’s Gold, players fight for the opportunity to don a suit of Golden Armor. The armor provides a defense boost and points for killing other players, while the rest tries to take the armoured player down for their own chance.
In addition, Rockstar has added the Evans Repeater, a rifle John Marston wielded in the first Red Dead Redemption. Described as “a powerful long-range rifle” that is “deadly at medium and long distances,” it can be bought from Rawson, Wheeler & Co. or other gunsmiths.
Everyone who logs onto Red Dead Online this week will also receive a special care package. Redeem it at your camp’s lockbox or one of the post offices dotting the game, and receive some helpful items:
- 60x High Velocity Pistol Ammo
- 60x High Velocity Repeater Ammo
- 2x Fire Bottles
- 8x Fire Arrows
- 2x Jolly Jack’s
- 2x Potent Horse Medicine
- 1x Lake Lure
As an added bonus, anyone who completes five Daily Challenges between now and March 11 will be gifted one Special Spinner next week. The Special Spinner is a handy lure to catch fish of all sizes that cannot be lost.
There is more to come for Red Dead Online. Rockstar has promised updates big and small including a Fishing Challenge, new Showdown Modes, and Target Races – along with new weekly bonuses and a lot more.
