One of the main issues that Red Dead Online has currently is the economy. It simply takes way too long to gather enough money to buy pretty much anything in game. Rockstar has listened to our concerns and has implemented changes today in an attempt to make your online experience a little easier.
- Increasing the cash and gold payments across a number of different activities including Free Roam Missions, Free Roam Events, replays of A Land of Opportunities Missions, Showdown Series modes and more.
- Reducing the prices of most weapons in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue and Gunsmiths. For players that have already purchased weapons at the previous prices, we will automatically deposit the difference to player balances starting today – please look for an alert message the next time you log in to the Red Dead Online Beta to notify you of this change, refunds may take up until December 10th to reach all players.
- Balancing the values of select pelts, skins and fish as well as horse reviver and pamphlets.
Rockstar also said they are looking into other improvements like fixing players getting kicked out of sessions and random bugs. If you play the game through any point from now until midnight, you also win a gift of $250 and 15 gold bars. I can say that I’m happy Rockstar is actively working on making Red Dead Online a more enjoyable experience, and maybe the GI squad can all hop on there soon and wreak havoc.
