This month’s Red Dead Online brings eerie chills over the frontier as the Halloween season approaches. New word coming down the wire tells of cults performing grim rituals, while campsites and holdouts complain of crazed animals and supernatural presences.
NEW HARDCORE TELEGRAM MISSION COMING OCTOBER 18
Mind your inbox at the local Post Office or your Camp Lockbox for a new Telegram later this month. Ike Skelding’s caught wind of the 7th Generation cult performing a sacrilegious rite to call forth the dead and bring their late prophet back from the other side.
Investigate the rumors and take on a new Halloween Hardcore Telegram Mission in False Hopes & Prophecy, beginning on October 18. All of Skelding’s Hardcore Telegram Missions will reward the brave with 3X Gold, RDO$, and XP through October 31.
THE HALLOWEEN PASS 2 RETURNS
The Halloween Pass 2 is resurrected for a limited time through October 31. All previously enrolled players will pick up their progress where they last left off, while new members can join up and earn exclusive rewards spread across 15 ranks that include masks to help conceal your identity, clothing items stained with the blood of past crimes, and accessories sure to inspire terror in your victims.
Plus, all owners of The Halloween Pass 2 who unlock each of the 15 ranks — including those who already completed all ranks last year — will be rewarded with the Hired Gun Kit, a package that includes the Fierro Bandana, bundles of ammo and consumables, and Capitale valued at 5 Gold Bars. All Rewards and Offers will be delivered within 72 hours of completion.
NEW ALL HALLOWS’ CALL TO ARMS LOCATIONS WITH 3X RDO$ AND XP
As the eerie season reaches fever pitch, townsfolk are whispering about air thick with dread. Help these holdouts defend their outposts from wave after wave of foes, frenzied animals, and the ghastly Ghost Train. Don a mask to tap into the supernatural strength and agility of a Night Stalker across three new maps in the Heartland Oil Fields, Limpany, and the Saint Denis Graveyard. Earn 3X RDO$ and XP on All Hallows’ Call to Arms modes, all October long.
TRIPLE REWARDS ON HALLOWEEN FEATURED SERIES
Test your skills and survival instincts by hopping into the fray of the Halloween-themed Featured Series to earn Triple Rewards, all month long.
Resourceful Hunters square off against supernaturally fast and strong Night Stalkers in Fear of the Dark. With the Night Stalkers’ powers tied to special skull masks scattered across the field of battle, Hunters must acquire these mystical relics to give their weapons more power and weaken their adversaries.
