Red Dead Online Patch Notes: PS4 PS Plus bonus, XP boosts and gold bar discount

The weekly Red Dead Online update has taken place today (January 14, 2020) and that means Red Dead Redemption 2 players have a new series of updates and XP boosts to enjoy throughout the games online mode.

There's also a new featured Free Aim Mode for players who like a bit of competition and this week it's 'Last Stand', which pits cold-blooded killers against each other in a free-for-all with only one player left standing.

A Rockstar press release also highlights that rank 4 Bounty Hunters, Traders, and Collectors can score 25% more Character and Role XP in select Role Free Roam Events such as Salvage and Day of Reckoning.

If that wasn't enough, there's a 2,000 Role XP bonus awaiting players via several role activities.

This includes Moonshiners Story Missions, Legendary Bounties, Trader Sell Missions, and the Gold Panners Dream Weekly Collection.

Plus, there's a 5 gold bar discount on the cost of the Butcher Table, Bounty Hunter License and Collector's Bag in-game; on top of a 30% discount for Rifles.

If that wasn't enough already, PS4 PlayStation Plus members can pick up a free colorway of the Leavitt Jacket for free.

ROLE FREE ROAM EVENT XP BOOSTS

Special Boosts for Bounty Hunters, Traders and Collectors

Bounty Hunters, Traders and Collectors roaming the frontier this week will receive 25% Character XP and Role XP boosts when they take on any Role-specific Free Roam Events in Red Dead Online. These Free Roam Events are only available to players who have reached the required rank in the associated Role. These include:

DAY OF RECKONING
Compete against other Bounty Hunters to capture wanted targets and return them for points, with the more dangerous or difficult ones being worth more. (2-8 Players, Requires Bounty Hunter Rank 4)

MANHUNT
Bounty Hunters must work together to apprehend wanted targets across a designated area, many of which are defended by equally armed and dangerous henchmen. (2-12 Players, Requires Bounty Hunter Rank 4)

TRADE ROUTE
Here Traders get to show off their defensive skills as all participants must safeguard a train laden with goods from attacking bandits. (2-12 Players, Requires Trader Rank 4)

CONDOR EGG
A rare and valuable Condor Egg has been spotted in the area – find it before your opponents do to reap the benefits. (2-12 Players, Requires Collector Rank 4)

SALVAGE
A wreck has scattered valuable collectibles across the designated area. Find as many as you can but be careful as enemy bandits are also scouring the terrain and will attack to protect what they've found. (2-12 Players, Requires Collector Rank 4)
