Red Dead Online players can now acquire the Prestigious Bounty Hunter License

The Prestigious Bounty Hunter License is now available in Red Dead Online.

Red Dead Online, which is now a standalone game, has a Prestigious Bounty Hunter License available.

It has added 10 new Ranks of progression on top of the 20 from the Bounty Hunter Role Ranks with high-level items and skills to acquire. You can also expect new weapon variants and horses, Infamous Bounty targets on the Bounty Boards, and more.


You can purchase it from any Bounty Board and if you reach Bounty Hunter Rank 30, you’ll continue to accumulate Bounty Hunter XP. This can be traded or RDO$ and Gold in the Awards Menu.

Those new to the role can take 5 Gold Bars off the Bounty Hunter License to get started on the Specialist Role. All Bounty Hunters can take 40% off Bounty Hunter items up to Rank 20.

Prestigious Bounty Hunters should have a look at the board for information on new Legendary Bounties, starting with Gene “Beau” Finley and his gang. They are wanted for various bank robberies. To find them, you should start looking at a colonial property in Bayou Nwa.

A new Outlaw Pass, number four, is also available with new outfits, emotes, camp upgrades, and more.

Photographs from The Naturalist Challenge are also now available as free Camp Flags, Moonshine Bar Photos, and Photo Studio Backgrounds via the Wheeler, Rawson & Co. Club.

Those who upgrade to the Outlaw Pass for 40 Gold Bars will receive new rewards, including cold-weather clothing, skill pamphlets, a new satchel, advanced photography enhancements, extra cash, and 30 Gold Bars, and special gifts.

This week, all players who own the Outlaw Pass No. 4 will receive RDO$400 as well as a 10 Gold Bar rebate.

That's not all though, as "various additions and improvements" have come to the game, including the ability to combine stubble with beard styles and the ability to use the Advanced Camera while on the back of your horse.

Bounty Hunters can also use a new Gunspinning Management option in the Player Menu to select and swap learned Gunspinning tricks.

All Bounty Hunter missions in Red Dead Online are also doling out double XP this week, and if you posse up with others, you will earn even more RDO$ and XP payouts in Free Roam and Bounty Missions, as well as Free Roam Events through December 7.

In addition to the 5 Gold Bar discount on the Bounty Hunter License and 40% off all Novice, Promising, Established and Distinguished Bounty Hunter Items, new players will find double XP for all A Land of Opportunities missions.

All Red Dead Online players will receive Rewards for 2,000 Club XP and 2,000 Bounty Hunter XP this week. If you are Rank 5 or above, expect to receive a Treasure Map. Everyone at Rank 10 or above will get a free Ability Card Upgrade.

There are also new Mustangs and Missouri Fox Trotters, all Pamphlets are 30% off, as are all Melee and Thrown Weapons.

Wilderness Outfitters is also offering 40% off all Tents, Camp Themes, Camp Dogs, and the Fast Travel Post.

Additional discounts include 30% off all stable slots, repeaters, pistols horses, saddles, coats, vests, and more.
