Red Dead Online has big Free Roam bonuses and a free Ability Card this week


+50% on XP, RDO$, and Gold

The jacks of all trades have their day in the sun this week in Red Dead Online. Usually, Rockstar gears weekly bonuses toward specific activities — role XP boosts, premiums on showdown matches, that sort of stuff. This time, it’s a massive increase to all the random things your posse handles around town.

For the week of April 14, Red Dead Onlineis handing out +50% bonuses to XP, RDO$, and Gold on all completed Free Roam events. That’s a pretty good return for taking care of some smaller tasks. Additionally, completing just one Free Roam event will net you a coupon for 50% off a coat that has a rank gate below 15.

However, Red Dead Onlineis also offering a real freebie this weekend. Anyone who simply logs into the game between April 17 and April 20 will get a free Ability Card just for showing up. No actual wranglin’ or rootin’-tootin’ necessary.

Lastly, there are some clothes returning (Plaid cap, Folwell hat, Gardenia hat, Macbay jacket, Clymene coat, Cardozo vest, Carver pants, Griffith chaps, and Pelt half chaps), and discounts on various items (30% off shotguns, 30% off bandoliers, 30% off multi-class horses, 70% off emotes, 50% off melee weapons, and 80% off Ability Cards).
